It's raining today and I'm hoping that it will help some of the snow to melt away. It's kind of gloomy though, so a good day to stay indoors.
I've had a really busy week, which is one reason I haven't updated since Monday. I had no sales from my web site last week and four this week—in two days, too. So, there was the whole invoicing, packaging, and trips to the post office thing. Then restocking the categories with more items. I've added a few new pillows, some vintage buttons (pretty 1940s ones that I bought from an estate), and a bunch of trims, mostly vintage rick rack. More crochet and lace trims to come and vintage fabrics that need to be scanned first.
I finished the wild rose embroidery I talked about a few weeks ago and have all my materials out on my work table to make the finished pillow. That may be a good project for today. And I'll post photos next week.
I did a lot of Ebaying this week and won some super cute embroidery projects—kitchen towels with poodles and two baby bibs—one with a bunny already done and the other with cats jumproping. Can't wait to see them! I have baby things on my mind these days as I'm in talks with someone about selling baby things on her site. More details soon if it comes to pass.
My copy of The Crafter Culture Handbook finally arrived and I'm very impressed with how nicely designed the book is and with all the cool projects. I'm loving the Vintage Button Jewelry by Linda Perlmann of Adorn magazine. And Heidi Kenney (My Paper Crane)'s super cute Cupcake Pot Holder. Lots of great stuff!
Another cup of coffee and I'll be ready to start my day. I missed Studio Friday last week but will try to get this week's done later today.
