As if I didn't have enough to do!

Well creative ADD has struck again. I bought a sewing machine. I know I probably shouldn't have but I couldn't stop myself. I neeed a 12 step program. I'm going to start making me and my daughter some tote bags and I got this really awesome book called cute stuff so I think I will try to make some stuff out of that. I definitely need to tie up some loose ends of projects that are halfway done. I'm going to finish my princess scrabble tile necklaces this week and finish up my line of photography greeting cards. Then and only then will I let myself dabble in my sewing. I see so many purses and bags online and on etsy that are so expensive that I'm hoping to make my own at a fraction of the cost.
Wish me luck!

My New Flower Brooches

I am absolutely in LOVE with these! I have been thinking about making them for months and yesterday I got off of my but and made them. They turned out even better than I had hoped. The price tag is wonderful! Only $3 each. I made 15 but I will definitely be making more. I would love your comments.

Happy Easter!

I have totally wasted a whole night doing nothing on Etsy

Well let me tell you that I have happily completely wasted an evening doing nothing worthwhile on Etsy. I just chatted away in the forums while watching dancing with the stars. I have been so crazy running around and trying to work down at the studio that I haven't had any quality down time. Well not tonight. Now I am happily relaxed but I'm up too late and will probably be tired tomorrow but who cares.
I have 5 kids coming for art class, I have a birthday party coming Friday night and I am going to be working on my flower brooches this week. It's going to be a good week.
