It has been an exciting week with two orders from now new Etsy store! So of course, I had to set up a formal shipping area.
Sophisticated isn't it? *grin*
It has been busy around the Hallow as well. I have a huge project going on, but at the moment it is secret, so I will just call it Project X. I am also working on the Penguin Pumpkin tutorial, which I am hoping to have ready for my next blog. And with Halloween around the corner, my younger daughter has requested this costume, which she is calling a vampire witch dress. So today I will be cutting out fabric in my free time.
I will close with a little trick for your craft area, if you want to use vintage tins to keep supplies in. I have a wonderful 1940's tin spice can set and a few other cans. The problem was, I could never remember what I had put in each can. CRS (can't remember sh..err stuff) strikes, and I spend all this time opening up each can and looking inside, hunting for buttons or brads, etc. I didn't want to do anything to ruin their vintage look and value, but then a thought came to me at 3 am, which seems to be my peak thinking time.
I made custom magnets, using magnet strips sold in craft store and then using a label maker to glue on top. The other advantage, is if I want to change what is in a can, I just pull off the magnet, re-label it, and my poor brain can focus on remember other, more important things, like where I last left the car keys!
Have a great day!
