If you couldn't tell by my last post, I love to shop. The pictures below have been from internet purchases of mine (multiple ETSY shops and the Beadinpath). I have been planning out projects using all of these new supplies, some more simple than others. The stamps will be used to make tags for my earrings and the washi tape will be for cards and scrapbooking projects. And the beads will be used for jewelry of course! Winter for me is a great time to stock up on supplies because it gives me time to create with them before the Summer, plus I really like buying bright colored beads to cheer me up! I am still calling it winter because it is still freezing out! I am so done with the cold weather, Spring can you hurry up and bring the warm weather please!
Now you are probably thinking, no posts really for a month, I must have been making lots of new stuff to show here, but unfortunately I haven't had as much time as I have wanted to make jewelry. I have been working a lot at my nursing job (which I absolutely love), but I do have projects in the works and will be showing them here soon.
And then there is Michaels. And they always have sales, and usually I find something that I need. Between the amounts of washi tape and yarn I have bought, I have enough to last me awhile, but I still want to buy more! What's pictured below is not the only yarn I have bought..ooops.
I am absolutely in love with my new business cards. I have had many styles of cards in the past, but none of them really fit me. I wanted something unique, and preferably hand-done. A friend, and super talented artist/.fellow vintage lover, was my choice to help me create my new cards. Amy of Stony Brook Design, my mom (because I value her opinion and artistic eye) and I worked on the design one night, and I finally decided to print them. It came at a perfect time really because Vistaprint was having a sale, so I got a bunch of cards for a very good price! I am very excited to start handing these cards out!
