Done and Dusted… well at least one anyway!

I finished my first order for celebration bunting, should be shipped out today. Yay! I feel as though I’ve accomplished a lot this week. I still have a lot of designing to do, and guess what!? Some of the fabric I ordered has come! When I ship to my customer tomorrow I’ll pick it up then. Thanks Sharla! Sharla has a oh so wonderful etsy shop with all sorts of goodies in it.
Here’s a link to Sharla’s sooooper etsy shop.

Here’s some pictures of bright and beautiful bunting!

To Do List

Figured I’d better make a list of everything I hope to complete this week.

leaf-stencil-red11. Finish and mail off bunting for customer.

leaf-stencil-red12. Start to design a cartoonish animal puppet with an old and seriously pilled dark green fleece blanket I have lying around.

leaf-stencil-red13. Now that September is here, I really need to get organized for the christmas season. I need to put together my new ideas for garlands, dolls and gingerbread men, and such like.

leaf-stencil-red14. Play patio tennis with my son, Jacob, and actually win!

leaf-stencil-red15. Start making time to relax and read some vintage children’s books that I used to LOVE as a child.

leaf-stencil-red16. And, design the measurements for some patio seating so I can be outside more.

leaf-stencil-red17. Last but not least, smile and laugh more, be thankful for everything I have.
