I've been trying to talk my friend Susan into starting a blog for months now. She has so much to offer the artist's blogging world and I am thrilled that her blog is up. Bookmark it and visit it often. It won't take you long to realize why I'm such a big fan. Wait til you see her house. OMG....it's my dream house. The only change I'd make would be roof color:)
Susan has two etsy shops. One is devoted to selling her delicious collection of vintage fabrics and the other offers her elegant handmade items all created with vintage elements. Add her to your favorite sellers on etsy. Her fabric is awesome. Some of it is about to be mine:)
Here are a couple of pictures because I CANNOT post on my blog without a picture or two. The first is the little notebook I made for Luke. It sits by my notebook on the computer table. Now we can make our notes without having post-its and index cards scattered all over the place. When we've filled a page in the notebook with no longer needed info, it gets torn out and thrown in the trash. Wonderful organizational tool. When the entire notebook gets used, we can slap the cover in our journals.
BTW, Luke's initials are LOL. Cool huh? He was born before LOL became the widely known acronym it is today. Also, "hope for the deaf" is fitting because, around our house, we are always saying, "are YOU deaf or something?" I think we've all learned to tune out one another's voices. He also likes swords, video games and all manner of weird stuff. Jackson is just the opposite; a total baseball playin', frog catchin' cowboy. He doesn't do much video game playing and really doesn't care much for TV unless it's Roy Rogers or ANY horse movie. Having more than one child gives new meaning the the word individuality.
I spent the afternoon yesterday baking cookies and packaging them for the fund raiser bake sale at our local little league baseball park. Took a bit of digging to find the Babe Ruth image on my computer. I was starting to think I might not have a single sports related vintage image, but alas, I found one! Isn't it great to be able to quickly crank out a collage on the computer?? So nice for this sort of thing.
I've never before done self-promotion on anything I make for the kids activities and events, but I thought, "what the heck.....I'm better known in Japan than I am my own community." So, I put my info on the back:)
I think I'm still having problems adding the Large size photo, but I don't want to take the time right now to check for sure. If I upload it Large, and the right side gets cut off then I have to go back in delete the photo and upload again. Don't want to bother with it right now. Someone left a comment saying they couldn't upload using Full Size, but had no problem with Large. It's making me crazy. I might have to file a help ticket or whatever it's called. I'm sure if you click on my photos they will be ENORMOUS. I've tried resizing them myself and it doesn't fix the problem. Grrrr.
Oh! Got a lot of glue interest. I loved reading everyone's opinions and I learned some things. I'll talk about that soon and share other people's opinions. Love the sharing of this artsy/craftsy community.
One more thing....I should let you know that I am almost completely out of stock on all my flocked wallpaper packs. I have two more large packs and that's it. I'll be working on new large and mini packs over the next several days. I'm also almost finished packaging my Findings assortment. I should have that up by the end of the day. I'll let you know.
Don't forget to check out Susan. You'll love her I promise!
