New stuff in the shop!

I managed to get a couple new sets of cards in the shop. The cards are constructed using photographs of Junkyard Art at LaKenenland – a drive-through sculpture garden created by artist Tom LaKenen. The card measures approximately 5×7 inches with a 1/2 –inch border around the photograph and comes packaged in a poly bag with white envelope. Check them out here: Junkyard Art Cards-Multicolored …

And another project…

Here’s another project I was working on not that long ago, just hadn’t gotten around to posting. This is the July featured craft for Wismoms.com magazine, a printed publication that contains some of the information located on the Web site Wismoms.com, which is an online publication geared toward mothers of children ages 2-11 in Wisconsin. For the last 18 months, I have written a monthly …

Time for a quick project

My quick little project of the afternoon is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while – turn some of my vintage scrabble tiles into key chains. I only have one of the actual key chain pieces, but a bunch of the jump rings. Now that I know my hand held drill works just fine for this project, I guess I’ll be making some …

Funny how time flies by

Well, I started out tonight with big plans to churn out a bunch of crafts. Instead, I spent about 90 minutes wandering around Hobby Lobby before buying about $12 in craft supplies – some paper, embroidery thread, a pattern and a refill for my sticker machine. Then I ran back home, before realizing that my my one travel mug is still falling apart despite numerous …

Finally!

I’ve finally got two blank cards and two sets of three cards listed in my Etsy shop! It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it might be, and it would be a heck of a lot easier if I could figure out how to batch upload or upload an item for sale based off a previous item listed. (There has to be a way…) Now, …

You can find anything on Etsy!

Check out what arrived in my mailbox this afternoon – a Therapeutic Moist Heat Combination Flaxseed and Rice Neck Wrap Eye Pillow Set Lavender Scented with Amy Butler Fabric. It is AWESOME! I’ve been having a ton of neck/shoulder pain that just doesn’t seem to get better, so I thought I’d give this a try. And really, let’s be honest, who could see this great …

My custom made stamp came!

The stamp I’d ordered from Terbear Collectibles arrived yesterday in the mail. Today, I broke out the ink and started stamping the 50 or so cards I have on hand, waiting to go. I have to say, the stamp looks awesome! I’d wanted it in the same font as the rest of my promotional material (pharmacy, for those of you who are font aficionados) and …

More eye candy

Here’s another version of my patchwork cards – this time in a soothing gray/blue/green color combinations. I love the different patterns and how the stitching jumps off the white card stock. Still waiting on my jennadesigns.etsy.com stamp to arrive in the mail… hopefully tomorrow and then I can start stamping the back of the cards and listing them on my site. It’s slow going, but …

And in other news…

About half way through my week-long vacation, while hiking in the woods, lugging camera gear and a tripod on a beautiful trail after having photographed a breathtaking waterfall, I had something of an epiphany: I was quitting my job upon my return. Strangely, as soon as the thought popped into my mind, I was calm, knowing it was the right thing to do. I had …

“Quilted” Cards

Here are some of my first cards that will be available at my Etsy shop. They are patchwork cards, quilted with lime green thread in a zig-zag stitch. I think they are super summery and fun. They look especially sweet in their own poly bag with envelope. I image they’d also look nice framed, as no two cards are exactly alike, they’re all variations of …
