It's been a crazy couple of weeks
well who is kidding who?
it's been one CRAZY year!
Hasn't this year just flown by?
Honestly I truly can not wrap my mind around how quickly this year went by
not sure if I was just really busy, or distracted this year
but what ever the case
I hope next year goes by at a bit more manageable rate.
Anywho~ I have a TUN to catch you all up on
and I hope to be filling my blog with more nonsense
throughout the next few weeks
Crafty Wonderland was AMAZING!
over 7500 people came and went
it was so overwhelming
I met a lot of really lovely people
spent way to much money
made a little too
but mostly just had a grand ol' time
It is crazy how much time goes into preparing for such an event
there's differently those who are seasoned venders and have a system
for me it was pure chaos
my poor house is in shambles
so I invited my folks over for dinner this weekend
nothing like the stress of knowing you have company coming
to get your house back to tip top shape
as soon as I get things looking like a home again
I'll share this years Christmas decorations and such
You will notice many many new items arriving in my shop
in the next few days, weeks, - month
I have been working on so many different new ideas
and really challenging myself to come up with new unique items
and every now and then facing my greatest fear
my PRINTER! ICK!
So one such new item to introduce is...
well I must first say that I am a very very terrible girl
I have quite an impulsive nature
of which I should be ashamd
well at-least when it coming to spending my money
so after playing with my friends button machine
I had to have my own!
A HUGE purchase
but my goodness is it addicting
and hopefully sometime in my life I will pay the silly thing off :)
So the first thing I've added to my shop are some really fun button mirrors
using items from my digital kits and also my hand drawn and colored illustrations
I've also made cute coordinating sets of 3-5 small buttons
that I will be adding to the shop just as soon as I get them photographed
I'm not sure if I ever shared this drawing of a little sailer outfit
it was suppose to be for the paper dolls I was working on
but as I never figured out how to really capitalize on selling the paper-dolls
I thought I might incorporate them into collage work or something else in the near future
As you can see I got really into making these.
I pretty much did these all in one day
as my machine arrived just in time for the craft show
Christmas is a time of giving
and because you are all such great bff
If you leave a comment sharing which button mirror is your favorite
you might just be lucky enough to be receiving it the mail very very soon!
I'll announce the winner Friday!
Thanks again for all your support!
I heart you all!
