I've gotten back into my books after a couple weeks of being away. I've managed to get 2 custom orders done and have yet 3 to go. One is for a very good customer in San Antonio, TX it was a butterfly themed journal and the second is for my husband's niece about an hour away, it's for her 9 year old granddaughter who likes to both write and draw so I made the pages alternate between drawing paper and lined paper - she too wanted a butterfly theme.


Last week I sent an application and check to participate in my first art/craft show benefiting the Cleveland Animal Protection League...I sit here wondering just how many books I need to have made for a nice display, I went easy on myself for my first show, it's only a five hour long one. I think I'll visit Vistaprint and get a banner made - they really have good prices on things like that, I get my business cards, swap cards, personalized notecards as well as rack cards from them.  


I have a swap that's been due for a collographed ATC but my first attempt was a complete disaster, I just made a muddy mess - I think I'm still trying to kick start that part of my creativity after the past few weeks I've had. I am so grateful to my partner, Tricia who was so kind in letting me know she isn't sweating it.  


Here's a picture of me, Renee' and my mom as they were getting ready to leave back to Georgia. I miss them both an awful lot. I am still in my pink jammies ;)
Now relax :)

So excited to hear about your show!! I will be curious as to how it all went.

I see you still have a lot of snow. Maybe I shouldn't mention we are having an early spring here........
