Busy Little Bee

I was busy again last night, could have worked for several more hours, but I turned it in at 9:30. I made several more bundles of cards AND (!) the most exciting news is the above card. It’s my own art work (: YAY! I sat down and sketched it out, traced it with the carbon ink pen from my Gocco set, made a Gocco screen for it and printed several sets of cards from it! It’s going to be so exciting seeing if people respond to this design, I sure had fun making it but it’s all about what the customers think.

I stamped the back of every card with my KatelyJane stamp from Sweet Paperie and wrapped the bundle of six cards in a inch strip of paper, closing it with Glue Dots and stamping the KJ Stamp on it again.

I was also busy cutting out MORE Kj Bags and sewing them. We’re in a “not spending any money” mode right now, and I need liner for a couple of my bags…so I guess they’ll just have to wait. I’ll focus on what I have and do my Gocco art, and I should be good for the Farmers Market.

So guess what? I’ve already accomplished one of my goals this week! Whoopwhoop!

I had some help from the Etsians in the forums the other day, on how to make a modge podge project less wrinkled. Apparently, all you have to do is paint the item with water before you apply the MP. I actually found that watering down the MP before I applied it worked better, since the journal I was covering acted weird when the water was applied.

The end result is definately better than what I tried before, still not perfect, but I’ll be working on it until I perfect the skill (:

Oh, do ya like the rub-ons?

Feature Friday!

Do you ever see things and think “Gah, why didn’t I think of that?”. Usually they’re brilliant ideas that you just know will be popular and fun, and they catch your eye right away.

For this Feature Friday, I noticed BurrowBurrow and was transfixed with their stuff as soon as I saw it. My first thought was “I wish I could do that!”, their creations are so amazing, fun, simple and attractive.

BurrowBurrow uses broken parts from electronics and machines to build their cute creations. They are seriously FUN looking…there’s just no other way to explain it! (Ok, there might be other ways to explain it, but “merriment, glee, gaiety and mirth” just didn’t seem to cut it!).

I think they’d be a super cute gift for a pencil-pusher in your life…how cute would these be on a desk? Instead of an apple, why not give one of these to a teacher for an “End of the Year” gift?
