brbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrrrrrrr (that's the best i could come up with for a drum roll...sry)
the internet! ok, so i know it sounds like a bit too much fanfare for such a teensie tiny thing, but finally getting the internet at our house is a big friggin' deal! hooray!
with that said, the etsy shop is set to open May 1st. this is an official date. here's a sneak peak at some of the things you will find...
these are some napkin rings i made for my own personal use...they look great with my dishes and table! my dad inspired me to make more and include them in my list of things on etsy...so i said why not? they'll be available in sets of 4 or 8. a price hasn't been set yet though. i love how organic they look...and they were a blast ot make!my first love, and the entire reason i decided to start an etsy shop, is paper crafting. one of my favorite things is making handmade stationery. who wants a hallmark, when you can have your very own, handcrafted, made with love card? each set of cards and/or stationery will include 4 cards and 4 envelopes...prices have not been determined for these either. below is "Camelia". this line will be available alongside two others for the time being, "Eleanor" and "Lolita". others might be added in the future, as i come across paper patterns that inspire me. since each card is handmade, designs and embellishments may vary.
lastly, i've been playing around with canvas and acrylics for the last 6 months, and having oh-so-much-fun! most children dream of being astronauts and figure skaters when they grow up, but for the *creative* child, we dream of being painters and dancers...now that i'm older, i still dream of being something creative...a painter, a scrapbook paper and embellishment designer, a potter...so i've decided that i will. i will be a painter. i will be a jewlery scupltor. i will be a papercraft designer. here are a few fun and whimsical canvases i've done, that will be up in the shop. i'm working on a few others to include as well, but they are grossly unfinished, so even a sneak peek wouldn't be all that great. these are both 8X10 thick framed canvas, that will come ready to hang.
any way the wind blows...stupid...
i'm so excited to get everything up and running! the anticipation builds!
i'll leave you with some photos of what the studio looks like after a long night of un-interupted crafting...
have a great day!
