...well I am...ummmmm (continuing) I would like to make a toast, to a great host and hostess in Oklahoma City this past Spring Break. My sister (her blog) and her husband showed my kids and I a wonderful time during our visit. I can't wait to go back.
So...you all know that I love to have coffee with my sister, if we lived near one another I think we would have coffee or tea together every single day...seriously. Any-who here is a picture of our two coffee cups - yes, she was knitting and I was checking email...it was GREAT!
...well I had two orders that I needed to get done and in the mail today...I love making cards and stationery...it's hard work and it takes so much of my time, but I really do love doing this. One day I will be able to work for myself.
Take a look at my work:
I love the wedding invite...the bride requested pearls instead of rhinestones...it adds the perfect touch.
And then...the baby shower invites...I love them. The ribbon is amazing...too bad my vendor may not carry this style anymore, I found another vendor with simlar ribbon...I will upload a pic as soon as I get it in the mail. Have a super great weekend!
...everyone, I would like you to meet my latest creation...magnets. I love these glass tile magnets...here is a sneak peak, they will come in a package of 4 small ones and 2 large ones...I'm not going to add them to my shop for another month or so...right now I'm getting ready for an event on April 4th at Grapevine Market in North Austin. I'm soooooo super excited!!! I will share more details as the day gets closer, and you never know what specials I might have for my blog readers that day...
...to any event! Just kidding, but I did make these cute little party invites - they are so cute, they look like an event ticket - These are for my friend's grandson. I didn't think they would turn out, but I ended up loving them...I'm thinking abou selling these in my etsy shop...whatcha think? I'm sure the party will be fun!
I think most people know that I will pretty much say what's on my mind without thinking or will give you an awful look...my mom hates thatabout me. I've come up with a line of cards called - not so nice notes. You can find them here. I think or say these phrases everyday, well expect the one that says it's too early to talk to me, I'm really working on that one, seriously...the cards, they aren't so nice, but I have a great little laugh when I read them.... they read: it's too early to talk to me, so don't ugh... oh crap, I forgot whatever... i'm rolling my eyes, and I hope you noticed
They come in a package of 5 and can be purchased as a set as shown here, or you can purchase an entire set with one of the phrases. They are printed on 100lb card stock, and come with white envelopes...
I mean seriously, I love this place...I could go there once a week and spend hours there, just like:
my special paper store
ok, you get the picture...anyway, now I know the prices can be a little (what's the right word) aggresive, but when there is a sale, for me the ideas are endless! I've been looking for storage for my stationery and cards...something that would be easy to carry to craft fairs...look what I bought.......
I purchased the larger one, it measures 17-1/4" x 14" x 6" h - YES everyone, 6 inches high...I'm going to be able to fit so much into these and the best part is, you can lift them like a suitcase and just carry it with you...I only bought 3, I think may go back and get 3 more!
