Not perfectly square here (they will be) and the crops are a better on the actual cards but these are the set of photo's I am having printed as cards next week.I am hoping to sell them in local shops but will also be putting them into my Etsy Shop as sets of 5 / 10. Do you like them?...

Just Sold

These lavender ladies seem to be selling fast at Etsy...more to come. Each set will be one of a kind. 
I've been feeling quite unmotivated lately.Still making things, but not as frantically as usual 2 weeks before a big fair.I'm very excited about cards...maybe thats why i've slowed down.Next week I am having 10 of my images litho printed onto card stock (approx.3000 cards), hoping to see the proof this week.I love to design and make but sometimes it is disheartening to sew for hours and earn less than the minimum wage...of course i don't do it for the money but would be cards are on their way and i'm hoping a few of the local shops buy and sell thousands because a week alone in the Maldives would be lovely...but for now I'll look forward to my oxygen facial in the morning... : )

Iris put a bead up her nose this morning. She did this a couple of years ago and I freaked out. Everything, with hindsight, I wasn't supposed to do...I DID. I panicked, and lay her down on the floor in the hallway and tried to get it out with tweezers.There was blood. Eventually I calmed down and closed her beadless nostril and made her blow through the other one.It flew out.A PINK had to be PINK ,Disneys #1 fan only did pink in those days. Today she wasn't so selective. It was a green one. Today there were no tweezers!
We had such a gorgeous day today. Good friends, sausage & mash & gravy, sunshine, chocolate cake and a day at the skatepark
