Woot! They want my bookmarks. The shoes aren't quite right for their shop but she's going to tell people about them, which I think is so gracious of her.
Thanks everyone for your support. This community is really something! I'm off to make book thongs/bracelets/thingies. :) Yay!
Well, you sweet people have been so encouraging that I had this great idea and actually jumped on it today. You've read here several times about my favorite prim/vintage/shabbychic shop in town...Two P's in a Pod, right? Well, it dawned on me that maybe they would like some of the things I make so I stopped there today to ask if they ever sell handmade items and they do! She told me to bring some in some time to which I replied..."Well, I just happen to have some in the car." lol I was so excited. I brought in two pairs of baby shoes and two of the book marks and she really seemed to like them a lot. The other partner wasn't there due to a death in the family, sadly, but when she gets back they'll make a decision. Either way, I was so tickled to see that someone else (in person, holding them in her hands) liked my things so I'm very excited and happy right now. :D
I went out today and thrifted some more baby shoes....one pair is so itsy bitsy...so cute!!! I can't wait to paint them.
I hope everyone had a good day. I did a lot of running around today so no crafting done. I did a lot of sewing, cutting and gluing yesterday...but the end product must remain a mystery for a little while. :)
My stepdaughter Emily is here for the summer and she is crocheting an outrageously neon green and orange bedcover for her room. It's huge! It's really fun to have someone to crochet with. She showed me how to finger crochet a really cool scarf, too. I'll have to do one and show you. It looks easy but I haven't actually done it yet. Now that I think about it, it looked too easy. I'm sure there's a trick to it. lol
Mike's dad and I had a very good long talk today. No homeschooling, but we did agree on so many other things and I think this may be the year that Mike gets his act together...whether he likes it or not. ;) I told Tom (my ex..confusing, no?) that it would have been easier to just stay married and he agreed. It was kind of funny, but kind of bittersweet...but I finally got to say "I'm really sorry about that." That was good for my soul and maybe for his. Now we can get on with living the lives we have now and stop kicking ourselves so much...and stop being too easy on children because of our divorce guilt. Deep sigh. It was a good talk. Funny thing is...he and I are so much alike and we married two people who are verrrrrrrry different from us, but like each other. lol Very opinionated, very forceful. Funny, huh? Not funny ha-ha, but funny...ironic.
Anyway, communication is a good thing. I recommend it.
