Monday's Loose Ends

Well it is Monday again. And it is August. Where did July go? I feel like it flew by and all I have to prove it was here are a few pictures... School starts in 2 weeks. I can't believe it.
But the back-2-school vibe is absolutely kicking in and today I bought a new planner, a cute little list-making notebook for my purse and even streamlined "My Favorites" on the computer. I loved making new folders for links and naming them things like "Great Ideas," "Bookish Things" and "EcoDesign." Sorda like getting to name paint colors. What a fun job that would be!

But now on to the things at hand - Monday's Loose Ends.

First up is some WIP pictures of a banner and crown combo I am working on as a special order. This will be the largest banner I have done because instead of doing my smaller circles, I am using 8x11 sheets of paper as the backing. The banner is going to hang in a large foyer and needs to be bigger so as to make more of an impact. I will try and get some good photo's of the finished project, but I bet I have hang it somewhere other than my mantle to fit it all in...


Next up is a glimpse of my Art Doll Hat in progress. I tried to make one in the traditional cone shape, but I was never happy with how it was turning out. So instead I switched to my own party crown pattern and I am much happier with the results. I will post pictures of the completed hat later this week. Hopefully I haven't broken any sacred Art Doll Hat rules...

Have you visited the Speckeled Egg shop or blog? They are both new fav's of mine and I can't believe I didn't know about them before - especially the shop. I thought the prices and selection were great and delivery was swift! I even used several items of the ephemera goodies I got on my Doll Art Hat.

And speaking of shoppes, my sister Jemimah is having a sweet sale at her little Etsy store, so go check her out!

















That's all for this Monday - another week is here and we off and running!!

PS- I can't figure out how to add people to My Contacts on Flickr. Anyone have a tip for me?

  1. To your PS: You have to go to each persons profile and to the right of the screen once you are on their "profile" page you click add them, it opens into a new screen and you add friend family or leave the boxes unchecked.
