A gorgeous finish and a fun teaser!

on July 3, 2014

It has been especially hectic around my home lately. I have been off the grid for a couple of weeks. I took a week off last week to get some major cleaning and organizing done, but instead managed to get nasty sick, I mean, the kind where you don’t even want to craft! So, that had me out of the game for a few days. After that, I did manage to get some fun things going on the crafting front.

First off, I finally finished this beauty! It is so gorgeous, I can’t wait to frame it and hang it on my wall!

And my second (and third projects), those fun super secret projects, have started to take shape. One is about a third done and I’ve started some motifs for the second one. (Two girls, so we need two of most things!) I am loving working on these so much!

I’m also working on a writing project for a submission deadline, so that is a new feeling for me. I have always written for only myself, so having a deadline to submit is scary. I’m not pressuring myself though. And even if I do get it in, there is no guarantee the publisher will select it. The process of writing is still so fun though! As a matter of fact, I better do some of that right now!

Hope you all have a happy, hectic, handmade day!
