Speaking of the Farmer's Market, funny story. I tried and tried and tried to get a booth and finally I got approved on Thursday. Right after I dropped my SUV off to get painted for 3 weeks. Arrgh!! So I won't be having a booth until August because I don't have a big enough car to cart all the tables, EZ-Up, and loot to the market each week. I am bummed but that gives me some time to design more fun things to offer in our little flea market. Also I have to figure out how to get Katie from school to the market since her dismissal time is after the market starts. School starts in a couple weeks! Summer just flew by...
Yesterday I taught a class at Collective Journey. I am really trying NOT to buy stuff right now. Not that I am being frugal, I just don't have any money left! LOL That darn Martha had to come out with some new punches that do a border all the way around a page so I HAD to get some. And you need TWO punches, one for the border and one for the corner. I so hate her and her stinkin' cute punches. ;P
I did this page for PDW. It's about headbands Xaver made for me and Elena. Someday he will sell them on etsy I hope!
I just got my PDW kits in the mail on Saturday and they were soooooo calling my name but I had to teach and stuff so the box didn't get opened until late last night. I really like creating while I am at home in a clean house. I think this is where I work the best. I have been going to so many crops this month and not getting much of anything done. I hope after this whole house re-org I am doing I can get to the point where I am productive at crops again. I think it has to do with my upbringing--work before you can play and then you can really relax when you're playing. So since my house has been dirty I haven't been able to get really creative because I have so much housework hanging over my head.
I've done 8 loads of laundry today so I think I earned some creative time. I am off to create some fun stuff in my room before X gets home. I am working on version 2 of the Our Little Monkey paper bag book from a few years back. I STILL get requests for this bad boy and now it is redesigned featuring my NEW canvas paper bag books I handmake! I'll be listing some in my etsy shop soon so keep an eye out.
That "Our Little..." series kind of faded away--not sure if anyone is interested in me continuing the series so if you are, please let me know and I work on the next installment. If you don't know what it is, it started out as:
Our Little Monkey
Our Little Monster
Our Little Angel
Our Little Sweetheart
Our Little Critter
Our Little Cuddlebug
Our Little Camper
...and I think that is it so far. I have a few more titles up my sleeve just in case I start up again and I'd love to do another monster one--that was fun. Thanks in advance for letting me know what you think!
