Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! While I don't have any plans to get dressed up and go out we did carve pumpkins this weekend. My husband and I had a few friends over and our kitchen was turned into a pumpkin factory. We cleaned & carved 3 pumpkins and roasted the seeds in two different flavors. They turned out really really good and I've been eating them up! I'm almost tempted to go get a few more pumpkins just to roast the seeds. I hope whatever your plans are that you have a safe and happy evening!

Shop Love!

My Etsy shop got some much needed love today! This lovely photo album was added. I also got two other books photographed and will be photoshopping them after dinner tonight. Look for the celtic weave book and a new origami book to show up over the weekend!
You can find this amazing album here!

Sweet Relief

I just spent the last 40 minutes doing what I love... I cut up some paper, folded it up, stabbed it, and sewed up a delightful text block. I'm working on a custom Kimono book and I'll be honest I'm slightly behind schedule on it but it's gonna be great. She picked the pinky/brown fabric and I couldn't be more excited about it. I'm gonna finish it up tomorrow morning, and send it on it's happy little way.
In other news the show is over, I'm alive, and all my school work is caught up for the next day or so. Hopefully I'll find time to squeeze another book in before I get burried in my homework.

I have another show tomorrow, sitting at our street team meeting on Wednesday showed me just how green I am at all of this. Everyone was talking propay, knuckle busters, and a million other terms I had never heard before....
I am starting to get nervous and if this goes well for me I guess I'll have to learn what all of those mean. I don't really want to get heavily into shows but if I do well I might reconsider that stance. This has been nothing but lots of stress on top of school, the deadline was just too much for me. I like that Etsy is done on my own time, when I have the time or want to make the time.

That being said everyone cross your fingers and wish me luck!

School & Colds

I've been so busy with school and trying to beat a cold that I really haven't been up to too much, and therefore haven't had anything to post about!
I got my first "midterm" back today and I got 87% on it, which was a good 10% above the average. With that, my lab scores, and homework schools I have an A and I couldn't be more excited!

So while I still feel terrible from this cold I'm feeling pretty good about my decision to go back to school. I was really worried for a week or so! Now I just need to find a balance between, school, work, keeping a clean house, and time to make books!

The rain is here....

Welcome to life in the Pacific Northwest, it started raining last week and it is here to stay. The rain put a damper on our trunk show and we had a weak turn out but I still sold two of my books. Which I was very excited about. We are doing a show in two weeks in a better location and I am hoping it goes better.

I've got a few new books that I will be slowly adding new items to the store this week as homework allows. The first of those books is this new Kimono remnant book, its a soft cover with a decorative spine, you can check it out in my etsy store.
