Weekly Resolutions

- Start on Custom Order Scarf

- Finish up Custom Order Cross stitch

- Work, work, work

- Lee and I's One Year Anniversary!

- Try relaxing

So just so you know I am not a total slacker.. yea yea you were thinking it! I have been very busy lately. This weekend alone, i sold four pieces.. One wasn't even through Etsy, which makes me happy :)

But here is what I have been working on..

$25.00 for both @
My Etsy Shop
$18.00 @ My Etsy Shop

I also finished up the Custom piece for Amanda.. I liked the way it turned out, I let her decide if she wanted cursive or regular cross stitch.. I think if left to my own devices I would have picked almost like an old english, but maybe I am just a fan of that font.. hehe.. She said she wanted cursive, so I found a pretty one that I didn't think looked too difficult to read. She is giving this to her boyfriend/fiance and I think it is sweet.. ha. The frame is beautiful in person, it is made out of stone or something, really heavy and really pretty cause it is all carved. I hope she likes it!

I tried to pick a border that matched the framing.. I think I did a fairly good job. I just hope she likes it!
I have two custom orders left on my list, woot! One is for a previous customer, who came back because she loved the other pieces she has.. always nice to have returning customers, I LOVE IT! So she tells me her 15 year old soon isn't allowed to say fuck.. so he says, "what the vulk!?" which I just assumed was a star trek reference, ha. But anyway, I am starting a fairly nice size on that piece. She hasn't been incredibly picky.. so this allows me to show off some, I hope. I am working on a impressive border, if I do say so myself. The other order is a scarf, which I am looking forward to knitting some. This is also from a returning customer as well.
I have been working a lot, things always get stressful around the holidays.. I have to learn how to turn the mind off when I am not there and relax some... or I may just lose my mind :)

thank you.. I hope Amanda likes it! I tried not to make it too girly, and then she said she wanted cursive, which for some reason is now girly to me? ha, I am wierd.
Which one coming up? The "what the vulk!?" one? That one has a intense border, it will probably take me a while, but I LOVE returning customers, and don't mind giving them extra attention as long as they don't mind the wait.
