Woodgrain Treasury!

A while back I was in an amazing treasury full of great items that had a woodgrain pattern. It was definately front page material, but it never made it to the front before it expired. Still all great stuff though!

If you are around and bored tomorrow at 1 p.m. EST time (noon for us midwesterners) I am being critiqued by the etsy labs online!!! Here is the link, you have to be signed in on etsy to enter. It should be pretty cool!

Just a little humor

When life gets too serious, I add a little humor. So, I thought I would make some seemingly cute tags. These adorable little guys are innocent at first glance, but when you flip over the tag the Gingerbread Man has a little something to say to you....

I even have some cards I will be making in this Gingerbread Man style. So be sure to check back to my shop later this week!

More Tags!

Here is another set of awesome tags. These ones are bigger and have a wood grain texture for the background and they come with a variety of messages! You can even personalize your message on these tags.

This year, make sure all your presents are prettied up by these tags!

A doe a deer, a female deer!

I just created these awesome holiday tags with a small doe on them! I am also creating some cards that will feature the same polka dots and deer, AND I am currently having some 1" buttons made in the same theme!

But for now, you can check out the tags in my Etsy shop.

No Coast Craft-O-Rama!

I just received offical word that I made it into the juried craft/art show! woohoo! I am really thrilled! I was nervous about entering since I had found out about it a day before the deadline, but I am sooo glad I did! The show will be on the evening of Friday, Nov. 30th and all day December 1st. Apparently last year they had about 9,000 people come to the event! It looks like I am going to be working my butt off to get enough inventory for the big show!

Anyone have any advice/tips for me!?

My Studio!

Here it is at last, my studio! I got two table tops and 8 legs from ikea and put them together to make one giant L-shaped desk. It is AWESOME. I love the space! I definately need more containers for things because right now I just have a lot of everything everywhere!

Look what I got!

Last night I received a package in the mail from JonesNotions. I bought some really cool tags that have patterns and wood grain on them. (if you all don't know, I am obsessing over wood grain patterns right now) Not only did I get buy one get one free, I also got a couple of extra flatcards in with my purchase! I personally recommend you all going over to Heather's shop to have a look around!

I finally did it. I made the BIG purchase! One 17" MacBookPro is now my baby! It cost so much that I just sit there and look at it and then decide to work on my old PC laptop! Though, I am sure this will change quite soon once I start doing more freelance and Etsy work from home! Also, once I clean up the studio I will post some pics of the whole space!

I hope you all had as fabulous a labor day weekend as I did!
