What an amazing week!
Every now and then, you are rewarded with kindness, for no apparent reason. That's how this week has been. The sweetest lady, Shannon Levart, from missficklemedia.com, saw my etched hinged cuff kit in my Etsy store, and decided to submit a post about it on Art Bead Scene. You can see it here. I can't tell you how honored I was, it blew me away. And as a result, a great number of kits sold because of it. All I can say is thank you Shannon, for your help AND encouragement. I had never offered a kit before, along with a tutorial, and thanks to those who have purchased it. Please send me photos of your cuffs, so I can post the photos!
You rock Shannon. Your kindness was amazing.
So, I wanted to come up with some fun idea for mailing out my kits. I borrowed this technique from Ruth Rae's book, and used heavy paper to wrap the kit, then sewed the ends. Everyone has really had fun getting it, and the post office lady is most impressed with my creativity!
So since my muse was working this week, I decided to make a fun surprise for a friend. I mailed it off, and can't say who this went to, but here's a little sneak peak. I'll post all the pics of this sweet project after she receives it.
The surprise is made up from some of my friends Lisa Jurist's sari silk, a vintage mop button, coffee stained lace, and hand stamped muslin. This was too much fun to make. Oh, that sewing muse has it's hold on me!
Next week I'm off to Round Top, Texas to shop until I drop for antiques! I am meeting up with my good friend and art sister, Diane Cook, Rosa & Josies. She lives in Texas, and is kind enough to take me under her wing for seven days. This is going to be an amazing scene. If you haven't heard of it, imagine miles of fields, multiple towns, with a multitude of vendors, all selling antiques!! Drooling yet? I am!
So here's your chance to tell me what you would like me to bring back for you??
How about you guys leave me a little wish list note, and when I get back, I'll list some of those goodies in my Etsy store if I can find them? What do you think??
I blast out of here early Wednesday morning, so get your wish list in early!
Hugs to all.
