Gone Crazy....Back Later

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Well, I've been MIA again (at least here). I am happy to say the reason is that I've had so many custom orders for my journals and sketchbooks that I've been the mad binder the past few weeks, I've yet to get 4 more finished before I can TRY to get a few fat mini sketchbooks into my shop, they make up fairly fast and make fantastic stocking stuffers at $20. I've only got one in my shop at the moment.

Here are a few I've recently completed, I don't think I'll be doing many more with the buckled ties unless I can come up with a decent supplier of buckles and colored elastic, I sewed the ties from fabric but would rather they had some elasticity and lordy knows it was a true scavenger hunt for the buckles.




I have also been honored with a blog award that I should have put on here a bit ago but I don't want to rush my post because deep gratitude goes to Susan who gave it to me and I need to also properly pass it on to a few others.

No real relevance for his video, I just heard this on my iPod and it makes me wanna dance which I happen to do a lot of in my little art room
Me, my music and a tiny dance floor............at the Shores

Bad Photos No More! (I hope)

Happy day for meeee! See this picture------------------------>
Well, it's the LAST one that will be taken with my Blackberry or the ancient digital of my husbands (it's so ancient it has a slot to insert a FLOPPY DISC!) because this is the new camera I've saved up for with my book/journal sales. I wanted a Canon but I got such a good deal on this that it was a no brainer for me. It's a Nikon CoolPix a simple enough point n shoot. I hope my pictures will be a lot better for my shop...if not it was just the photographer all along! 

The kids costumes were finished this week just in the nick of Halloween:
Back to the books!
