On My Own Tonight


So, since I'm sitting at home by myself tonight I decided to catch up on my Etsy shop listings and Sweet & Sinister swap blog reading.  Then I realized that I just had my 500th sale!  Wow!  Not quite what my Ebay sales were, but the number is improving.  So, to celebrate, I decided to have a give away.  Now... what should I give away?  How about a tag, since I love making tags so much.   Here's a closeup of a tag I'm going to be selling on Etsy.  I'll use my first one as a give away -- just leave a comment on this post.  I'll draw a name Monday night.

And here's my first project from the Sweet & Sinister swap blog.  I can't decide if it's done or if I should add something else to it.  Let me know what you think when you leave a comment.  I got too hot to keep crafting!  Had to come downstairs & sit in front of the fan.

I remembered to take more photos of the pages in L's book that I hadn't taken before.  Here's the cover.  Recognize that photo on the left?  lol...

I think I hear someone coming in now.

Your paper punches are always fabulous! Love the tags from the Sweet & Sinister blog (I need to finish and hang mine...so I can show and tell, too!)

I just happened by your Etsy shop yesterday (I think) and I DID SEE you had 500 sales. I was like, "WOW, that's cool!" Congrats! And do stay cool!!!

1) Those bats are cute!
2) I bet the lady in that old photo rolled over when you put that hat on her!
3) On your project - How about a punch of color with some deep, but bright purple bats?
4) Lauren's book - HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Nice wings! Very timely, too, since it's Olympic season! : )
