Who Gives A Hoot

These cuties do, that's HOO! This project started out as one owl magnet for my sister and before I knew it I had 7. I love them, and they're so addictive to make. I've made 2 more since this batch, I'll keep posting them in batches as I go. I've been busy. We just finished our third week of our Papertwirlies Team blog contest; we didn't get that many comments; I don't know why; our prizes were great - maybe it was just too much work to go and look at all the shops and leave a comment; although people could have cheated and just left one item and shop we wouldn't have minded.

I have also re-designed my other etsy shop, pinkmonkeygraphics; I'm a graphic designer and my goal is to once again work for myself and friends have told me I should open a shop for that too. I must admit I don't have enough time so I'm not rushing into that shop quite yet. I have to decide what design services to offer and stuff like that. I made a new banner and avatar and if I do say so myself they're too cute. I may just start out with banner and avatar designs, that I can handle.

With Easter right around the corner, I'm putting my bouncing bunny time section on sale - cute stuff, cards; mini bunny frame and lovely egg ornaments all handmade and quilled by myself.


Custom Order, Mini Frames for Party Favors

This past week I received two convo's from two different women for custom orders, it's strange how that works. One was immediate, I worked on it last night and this morning and just shipped it out. The other is for 25 birth announcement cards, based on the poppy and ladybug card I have for sale. Not sure if the cards are a done deal, waiting to hear back.

The frame custom order is for a 1st birthday party, they will be used as favors; 8 of the mini frames. She asked that I cover 4 of the frame in a pretty lavender tone on tone dot embossed paper and the other 4 paint a cool light purple. This was the first time I had covered the mini frames with paper and they turned out really nice, I'm going to definitely try it again in the future. I then created 3 flowers and 1 butterfly for each of the 8 frames. Unfortunately my fringer decided last night it was going to stop working so I had to hand cut the fringes; but they turned out great. I loved my fringer but if they can't fix it or explain to me how to; I'm not going to by another one; I don't fringe that many flowers to justify buying another one; not at this point.

Now I think I'm going to work on photo holders, my sister suggested I do some with owl's - good idea. I'll post when they're done.

Little Bunny Card

I attended a candy crop at the local scrapbooking store today and actually accomplished a lot - this adorable little bunny is one of my creations. I think she is just the cutest and I definitely will have to make more. I have her for sale in my etsy shop and couldn't help putting her on here too just to show her off. :)

Easter Eggs

It's been weeks since I posted anything, I was sick with sinus issues and it's taken me awhile to get caught up with everything but I think I'm almost there. Weeks back I was browsing through Michael's and came across these paper maché egg shapes and knew I had to have them and how perfect they would be for easter. Well it's taken probably 3 weeks to finish them all but I'm so happy with how they turned out. I painted them each a different color - lavender, pink, blue and yellow; then added two white stripes to each egg shape which I then painted with clear glitter. I quilled circles and flowers in coordinating colors to go on each egg, added polka dot ribbon and finally I finished. I have put two in the shop here in town and two will be going into my etsy shop.
