There are so many joys of summer time:
-spending more time with the kids
-evening bike rides along shady streets
-nurturing a garden
-connecting with neighbours after a long cold winter
-fires in the backyard fire pit
-the song of birds
-relaxing, relaxing, relaxing
You can see that making new products for my Etsy shop isn't real high on the summer priority list. Although I love making new things, I don't want it to stress me out and keep me from enjoying the summer.
I have however, been busy with another large custom order of small notebooks and matchbook notebooks. I find cutting the papers a little tedious for a large order, but I'm now at the step that I enjoy most: pulling it all together--choosing what colour thread to sew with and what colour beads would coordinate. I love experimenting with new colour combinations with fun and surprising results.
Here's a sneak peek:
When this order is done, I'll get back in gear and work a few new things for the shop.
