New baby card listings

>> Wednesday, July 29, 2009

These cards are simply adorable, are they not...? Lots of detailed stitching, especially on the baby girl one: the ribbons, the stripes and French knots on the blanket... Both time consumming, but very much fun to create... Posted in my Etsy shop :)


More new listings :)

Two more of my new listings in my Etsy shop - this pretty much takes care of my inventory "stash" :)

I have been working on three more cards; one should be finished tonight and the other two should take a few more days.

I am thinking about re-arranging my crafting area set-up; it involves some major furniture moving and I am still not 100% after messing up my back 10 days ago. Old age... so NOT pretty! LOL... Jim offered to do it, but I feel bad about having him doing all the work (besides he does get freaked out whenever he comes closer than 4ft to all the wiring under the desk). I just have to take a few more Tylenol than usual and start moving things :)

I've got to take my 4hrs Algebra final - the joy! Actually, I love my Algebra class; I have learned lots of new things this term. Not sure how it will help me in the future - but the knowledge of it won't hurt!

And, to top the term: the Final Essay! The rough I had prepared for class peer review had over 800 words, and my final paper should have between 1,000 to 1,200 words. It should not be a problem :)

Well, got things to do; y'all be good now!


New listings :)

Two of my new listings in my Etsy shop - stop by and check out the rest of them :)

Last week of school

>> Monday, July 20, 2009

Today starts the last day of classes for this term. Of course, I have an Algebra final as well as a final essay for my College Writing class.

I have confirmed my classes for next term and did my book order! I had to buy Adobe CS4, because CS3 seems to be already obsolete for my Design classes... LOL... I hope I will not have to buy yet another version before finishing school - the software is getting mighty expensive!

Well, my classes are: Design/Illustrator, College Writing II and Psychology. It will be an interesting term, that's for sure!

I need some coffee... I should not start a day without it :)


New listings in my shop!

This morning, I bring you the two newest listings in my Etsy shop: "Beer" and "Wine a bit".

This one is for the man in your life! A detailed beer mug, foam and all, to remind him what helped him be dancing God - BEER! A dangling 3D brass charm embellishes the top of the card.

A whimsical card, with a side border of grapes, leaves and vines accenting a cute saying "Wine a bit... You'll feel better". The grapes have been stitched in rich garnets and dusky purple, leaves in soft greens and lettering in medium and dark garnets. A dangling 3D brass charm embellishes the top panel.

One of my Etsy customers commisioned me for this card - my very first 'Custom Order". Perforated paper, DMC Embroidery Floss in Old Gold, textured cardstock and about 7 hours of writing and erasing and here it is!
