A Little Catch-up Ketchup

Y'all, I feel like I have been doing so much and at the same time I feel like I have been doing nothing.  I hate how long it takes to do internet things like edit pictures and load them to my shop.  I spent the whole night doing it! Of course I took bunny petting breaks so that slowed things down a little. My husband is teaching me how to edit photos so I think they are getting better but could still use an extra set of eyes to make sure the color isn't too wonky.  I wish I could pay someone to do my internetting for me.  I would write this blog and read other blogs and keep a keen eye on pinterest but my future fantasy computer tech could do all the rest, including check in with facebook. I swear I'm almost ready to give it up.  Do I really need to spend an hour looking at a stranger's birthday pictures for their dog from three years ago?  Yesterday I did something right... I set my phone on the other side of the room and relied on pure laziness to keep me from retrieving it.  So when I was working on garlands and watching a movie I wasn't able to say... "hey, that guy's in this movie, what else has he been in lately?" Believe me I wanted to look so bad but... laziness won and I continued to work.

Here is what I've been doing.

Sweet Day garland on painted stick.  This picture seemed perfect last night and now I realize it's too blue. Boo. Check it out here.

Happy Day Arrow garland resting here.

Visitors will feel very welcomed with this sweetie pie welcome sign.

I got to make my first custom banner this week! This was a fun process and I learned a lot about working with a client.  I am excited with how it turned out and can't wait to see it hanging in the nursery!
 I have been taking photos lately to document my ever changing wall.  Yesterday I cleared my wall for my photo shoot so I thought I would take a pic of my table instead. It is covered in crafty goodies!

Yesterday morning I made another treasury. I have been collecting images for this one for a while now. You can check it out here.  If you are an etsy member and you like this treasury leave me a comment!

I have an inspiration starting point for my next treasury. I have been wanting to use this painting by my friend Julie for a while now.  It's taken me a bit to figure out what the theme will be but I think I'm ready to make it. Julie is a peach and has lots of beautiful work in her shop.

Back to work. Have a great Tuesday!
