A Quest For Focus

I am doing much better in the book production end this week, three books, three days, I can actually get more done in a day but I have an issue with focusing my attention as you may have noticed from the title of this blog. I have two from the same cut of fabric, I've done one before with the woman with dark hair this time I did both that were on the material and I'm offering 10% off if a reader wanted to purchase them both as a set (excluding shipping costs), just put them both in your shopping cart and use the coupon code ASIANSET at checkout. I do ship internationally, but since the charges vary so much with the weight of books in general - just contact me and I can get exact charges to ship.
They are both buttonhole bound and each contain 160 pages of 90# watercolor paper and can be found here 

Another one I have finished is done with a fabric from FabricLovers. It is 100% authentic African fabric made in Mali, West Africa, I love that it is a fair trade fabric and directly helps the village in which it was made.
Can you see the tribal masks? From Japan to Africa I've been.....sort of ;o)

Lastly, it's time again that I share a link from the On Fire For Handmade team. This week it is 
Il Mare Atelier,   she makes some very pretty jewelry - my personal favorite is this bracelet, see the tiny flowers in the pendant? Lovely!

This week's Featured Artisan is Suftan - Il Mare Atelier! Perfect addition to any wardrobe and great gifts too!
You can find Il Mare Atelier on: 
http://www.ilmareatelier.etsy.com

No relevance for the music, just like both Angela McCluskey AND Deep Forest, so together it's a bonus!

I'll be ready.........at the Shores
