I misplaced my crafting mojo. I know it’s around because it peeks out now and then. For a while I have been designing a surprise for a friend. Once I actually get it completed and its received, I will be sharing it. It’s a lot of design work that will need to be sent off to be printed and so on. It’s not something I can do with my printer at the house. Its been great fun! I can’t wait until its done and complete!! Its been a lot of “Mr. Bernie can you fix this for me? Mr. Bernie I don’t like how that looks can you change it for me?” He so loves that part.
Now its a matter of taking the cards I have designed and printing them out. Having Mr. Bernie cut them out, I can’t cut a straight line. Finding background paper and embellishing them. I was going to start printing last night, but after not printing for so long my ink dried up. I have a new ink cartridge and ink re-fills coming in this week. (I love the ink refills! We must have refilled my color ink cartridge at least 15 times. A huge savings when ink cartridges are between $17-$20′s. That was the best investment we ever made!)
Mr. Bernie’s Mom has asked me to make a couple of fun cards. That made my day! Another friend wants me to set up some cards for him to sell in his Independent Bookstore! Its nice when folks can ask me to design something for them. After not crafting for so many years, I’m still blown away that people like my stuff enough to ask me to make them things! Love it! It makes me feel like a real crafter! I feel like Sally Field when folks ask me to design stuff, “You like my stuff, you really like it!!”
The Museum of Women’s History asked me to design a sign for our display window. This month is National Poetry Month and we need a sign explaining why we have some books of poetry in the window. Below were the top two choices in a scientific poll. (I posted them on my Facebook page and asked which people liked. *lol*)
For now I have quite a few designs. Now its just a matter of printing them off or sizing them down for printing. I hope to get my Etsy shop stocked up with new stuff this week. After my printer cartridge comes in. I think it will be good for me to start gluing and embellishing things again. It’s just a matter of getting it done. I have a few more days to put it off. Then watch out, I’m going to be busy, busy, busy!
Our dog, Katie, has a new post on her blog. It was adoption day this weekend. She has a long post talking about.
