Surprise balls!

A fun way to wrap up tiny things together.

I’d like to figure out how to do it without generating so much garbage, though. Maybe the key is just to reuse materials?


Hooray for the weekend!

My wrists are doing pretty well now, so it’s time to get back to making stuff. First there’s some tidying of my workroom but hopefully that won’t take too long.

In other news, I’m getting more sales and feedback in my newest shop so if you want in on the 50% off coupon code PROJECTFEEDBACK you should get in now before I decide it’s enough. 🙂

I’ve updated What’s Next and added another link to my blogroll over in the sidebar there. I really should add more, but I get so lazy sometimes. And now I’m off to the post office. Then maybe the 7-Eleven for a Slurpee.

I still use a computer from 2002.

What can I say? I don’t have the money or desire to get the latest Photoshop. 7.0 is more than adequate for my needs and the OS on my poor old iMac Indigo is the last one that supports the application. No matter what other computers I end up with, I’ll stick with my ancient desktop for photo editing.

I’m currently on my brother’s old Sony Vaio that he gave me for Xmas. I am blogging instead of editing photos of the aprons I finished up yesterday because my iMac has very little RAM and a newly developed tendency to overheat. Menopause, maybe? Hot flashes and memory issues, lol.

I hope to have the time to get it done later this evening.

Another one of my items has been featured in a treasury with the most wonderful name of Bathing Naked Fairies in Unicorn Tears and I’m loving that.

A friend has decided that I need to add “make wallets” to my list of things to do. And I pretty much do whatever she tells me that doesn’t involve shaving my kid’s head except for an area in the shape of a gerbil. (Would that be considered a gerbil-hawk or some form of mullet?)

I’m excited that almost everything I’ve made is currently up and for sale in my shop. I’d be more excited if I was selling more of it, but that will come. I’m antsy to start working on new projects but it’s satisfying to finish up all the old ones.
