Big Makeover


Continuing the theme of not actually getting any rest over spring break I finally managed to overhaul my business cards and banners today. You might notice that things look a little different here today. I would show you the new card but for some reason blogger wants invert and distort all the colors but you can get a good idea of the style from the banner. I love the Kimono Book I got the inspiration from and have to admit that I'm surprised that it's still in my shop. I love this book so much that I made one for myself that I use for my chem lab notebook. Along those same lines I'm surprised that no one in class has ever asked me about it.

Anyways back on top here! I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! Today is actually my good friends birthday this evening and we will be headed to her house shortly for a wonderful dinner.

Maybe you should drop your book in the hallways at class, and when someone picks it up, say, "Thanks so much! I spent hours making this myself and would hate for anything bad to happen to it!!"

Make this a very regular habit... be sure to have business cards fall out of the book too as you drop it. :)

Your books are so great! I would have asked you about that Kimono book! I'm off to your shop to see what else you have in there...

Thanks Kerry & Beverly!

The book looks like it got a padded cover to it. Does it? And the long stitch one you did using the fabric cover did you do anything to the fabric to bulk it up or anything? Curious curious :-) They're pretty...

Hi Rozi, the fabric has a layer of backing on it to prevent the glue from seeping through but it's not padded.
The long stitch does not have any backing to it as it is a very durable yet supple material. As you can tell it's my favorite of the Kimono fabrics I have, and luckily I have lots of it!
