Cheery Cherry Blossoms

I finally finished an order for 10 bookmarks for a girl I went to high school with. She asked me to do a cherry blossom theme. I am pretty proud of these little beauties. Lots of hours went into this little project, but worth every minute to see the smiles that they will bring! :)

Planning out projects and thinking of tutorials to do...

I have been working on a number of projects, and have quite a few to do. I recently joined up with a new website that will host tutorials by download. I have been accepted as a contributing designer. I haven't submitted anything yet because of time constraints, but I have been planning out stuff for future tutorials.

One idea I had was to do a needle felted cover for an e-reader such as Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Blackberry, Ipad, and Ipod Touch. My aunt has a Nook, and I told her that when I was done with it, that I would give it to her for her Nook.

I think it will be a fairly simple project, and good for someone that is just starting out with needle felting. The dimensions would vary for each device of course, but that is minor. I hope to get started on this project in the next few weeks.

This is the latest needle felted bookmark order I have been working on. I have 3 more to do, and I need to get them done, and mailed by Monday to get to their place of destination in time! I have had this order a while, but they didn't need it until Christmas. This is one of the ones I have done this week.
