New Finds

Monday, August 15, 2011

I'm in a group called On Fire For Handmade and once a week I'll be sharing a link of new finds from within the group. This weeks featured shop is Court & Spark on Etsy. I really love the handmade coin purses and after thinking about it I should OWN one, I have change at the bottom and in every pocket of my purse and think it would be a good idea to have something like this so I'm not one of those people you are sighing behind in line at the cashier while I am digging through trying to find 4 pennies for 5 minutes so I don't get 96 cents in change to join the rest in the abyss I call my purse!
This weeks featured artisan is Phillippa Pinka - Court & Spark.
Darling Creations that make perfect gifts! You can find Court & Spark on:

Have you ever had a project that no matter how hard you try you get it 3/4 of the way finished and you lose ALL motivation to complete it?? I have a custom order like that on my work table right now. The hard parts are done and all I have to do is bind the books (it's a 2 book set with a slipcase). Why does this happen? I mean, it will be so easy to complete but I just sit and look at them without making any move to get it done. I guess the in-hand-by-August-20th deadline will be the only thing that will force me to finish. Sad, isn't it?

I was introduced to the following artist while at the shore, I really love her stuff
