Projects galore!

Well, I have some new projects I am working on now, aside from the bookmarks I am working on. I am working on a project for my nephews for their birthdays. I also was approached by one of my friends to make a keepsake for her son who will be 1 in November. I made him a blanket when he was born as a gift from his aunt. So, lots to do, and so little time. I worked on re-organizing my craft room yet again, as it seems to be the dump all room. So, I hope I have a proper workspace again soon.

I hope to have new pictures of my progress soon!
Have a great weekend!

Busy!

Well, I haven't added anything new to my etsy shop because I have been busy at home with a vegetable garden, a 4 year old, and life just in general. This doesn't mean I haven't been crafting. I have actually been working different orders over the course of several weeks. I have had 5 orders with a total of 24 bookmarks, and 1 felt play purse. I also made another purse as a gift. So I am busy.

I am working on a order commissioned to me by my aunt for two of her female residents that live at the facility she works at in Colorado. My aunt gave me full artistic license on design and color choices for the bookmarks. I am super happy with the results of the 2 that I have completed. I got the idea for the second bookmark from one of my daughter's library books. I just love children's books, and the first thing I look at before anything else is the illustrations. If I like the illustrations I will like the book.

Once I get these big commissioned orders done, I am going to offer custom bookmarks on my etsy shop. So far I have been given the freedom of design and color choices for all of the projects I have done,with the exception of 2 which gave me the theme choice and colors, but I designed the art myself.

It has been very rewarding, and I feel I get better with every project I complete.

I have a new Facebook Page

I have just created a new Facebook page for my crafts. I have had a lot of interest in my creations every time I post a new project, so I thought it would be nice to have a page just for my work.
I have gotten some commissioned orders through my postings on Facebook, and that has been exciting. :)
