Welcome to my blog! I am Nan, the human component of this blog. B.A.G.S. (a.k.a. AINE) is my pug. This blog will notate musings, muses and British inspired goodies with an American twist. I own The Portobello Road Shoppe located at theportobellord.etsy.com. My specialties are: sewing, stitching, paper crafting and felting. Oh, and the occasional nummy brownies.
Yahoo! I finally have a dining room table. The Shayne Table!
It took me long enough. I mean really- like 16 years? For reals.
I ate off of desks, conference tables and for the longest time- standing up!
So this is a real treat and I was able to get it via points! Yea! Even though I have to wait for a month until this mahogany stained table of goodness, that is okay. I was hoping to have it by the time the pugs and MO come in for a holiday. But alas... I have to wait a bit!! Hopefully it arrives before Xmas!
It is official. I have a store facebook page! I have a goal of getting to at least a 100 *likes* by the end of this week so please pass this link around to anyone you know! Thank you in advance!
One of my biggest goals is to get my website together and get my portfolio in gear. Just going through the pictures that I had I realized....
I seriously need a photo booth/thingy/that professonals use!
Speaking of pictures here are a few things I made this weekend.
This Puggy Ornament is going to Green Mountain Pug Rescue's auction! YEA! It is 2.5 inches high and 1.5 inches round. It was so fun to make and I hope it makes loads of money for the rescue! The last one I made for DFW rescue made $50.00 for the rescue! Yea! Btw - did I tell you? For every pug item that I sell from now until the holidays - I am donating $5.00 of that purchase to a pug rescue of your choice. I am sorry but the best way to see my pugs is to go to my facebook page or look on my flikr or this blog. I am happy to state that most of my pugs don't even make it to my etsy. So if you would like a specially made puggy - please feel free to contact me! Or contact AINE. She gets so lonely when I needle felt. It is hard being a model. Very hard. So she would appreciate your emails. :)
These little guys are going to a craft fair tomorrow.
I love puppets and I will be making more of them. Also cats have been requested so I am practicing as much as I can. Especially when you see pictures of this little guy - who is beggin to be felted!
I mean seriously. IS HE NOT THE CUTEST KITTY EVERRRRRRRRRR!?! Ugh Want to eat him up - and I am alergic to cats!
OH! Also I am quite interested in 1000pugs.com. If you have any puggies that want to be photographed, my friend Donna and I are trying to get 50 pugs to wrangle for the Milwaukee Pug fest next year. Please email me if you are interested.
So much fun new stuff coming! Hugs all! Nan and zzzing Aine
