My eyes were SO tired after work last night, but not too tired to see that Bill had been working on rounding the corners to the wood cuts for our leather venture.  Isn't he the best?  I sure hope I can pull this idea off for him because #1) he truly thinks he'd use it and #2) he's one of the best salesmen in the world and he's not shy about promoting the handmade things around here.

Pretty bad when the Home Depot chick sees me walk in, and you can almost feel her mood change.  And not for the better either!  LOL  How many women walk into Home Depot in heels and head towards the lumber aisle and NOT be a problem customer?  And just getting across the store in heels brought many male employees towards me with questions on how they could help.  And not because I'm some hot chick either!  You remember the Sesame Street song "One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here"?  Yeah, like that.  HA  They are getting to know me there, and know that I'll want LOTS of cuts.  Both of the cutter guys rock and never fear each time they honestly do mess up a few boards.  But why get bent out of shape about it, it makes for some great laughter and good conversation.  And as I was leaving and listening to the HD chick tell me about her flower bushes she needs to dig up out of her boyfriends' yard, I just had to smile and say, "I'll be seeing you in a couple of weeks for a flower update and more boards, so be ready!"  LOL

 
 
I have uploaded 5 products to the "Three Sisters' Marketplace".  Now it has all been sent off to their jury to see if it is all worthy of their market.  Time will tell, right?

See if you can see my shop there by clicking:  Three Sisters Marketplace

Wish me luck, folks!  :)

OK, now I'm off to get this last baby blanket done and delivered tomorrow.  The boards for Bill's leather idea have been cut by the local Home Depot and now it's up to him to round those corners for me.  This was HIS idea, so HE can sand those corners, don't ya think?  :)

Here are the projects I submitted (if you'd like to see).

There are eight (8) new listings on Etsy.  Complete.  Done.  Written up.  Put out there.  The gazillion photos can now be erased off the camera.  Time for some eye and mind relaxation...... does that mean sleep?  Could be!

See, I'm too lazy to even put up the links to the Etsy items.  Deal wid' it.  :)  Look at the scrolling boxes down on the right side - you'll get there is you want.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of good things.

Blessings and get creative!

Meet........ The Triple Flip!  I think that's what these can be called so they have a general name when I train Bill on how to sell 'em.  Right?  HA!

I almost have it down and can't wait to do MORE!  This one is even better than the first, but I can always do better-er.  It's in the genes, can't help it.

This fabric is SO gorgeous and can't wait until tomorrow when the sun comes out, hopefully, so a good photo can be taken.  The camera doesn't always do the best job, or is it the operator?  Hmmmmm

That photo is at kind of a weird angle and not focused too good, but right now neither am I.  LOL  The blue pen has GOT to go because it just plain looks bad.  No question.  And that pocket on the top left side?  Yeah, you could fit your iPhone in it.  It's that deep.

OK, I'm off to watch an old movie and get once around that baby blanket with the base row of crochet.  Good night, sleep tight and let's make tomorrow the best day yet.

The idea worked!  Saw something sort of like this on the web, but didn't really like how the pen holder worked with the other one.  But this will work - even BETTER than elastic, ribbon or whatever.  The next one will be even better because the first is always a learning experience, right?  I like spines on smaller things, and this one has a real spine, but it's still pliable.  No board or cardboard in this one.  And THREE pockets, baby!  THREE!  Some are hidden under the notepad, but they're there.  So I think I'll go try my hand at one more of these, tweek it a little and be back posting in a couple of hours.  Here we go!

I've had a very fruitful morning in getting some product actually COMPLETE!!!  YIPEEE  Here's the stack of large ports and a couple of medium sized martini ports.  The martini themed ones are just fun, what can ya say.

Two martinis, a pink and black princess-ish one, Maxine (gotta love her), green paisleys and you can't tell, but the bottom one is sort of like a night out with pearls and long gloves.  Yeah, it's different, so you'll just have to wait and see it whenever I get around to writing them up and putting them on Etsy.  (Oh, how I hate that part)  Or maybe I should try the Three Sisters on these..... Oh, decisions decisions.  :)  But progress has been made!  Almost time to gear up into my Henry Ford mode soon and get more things cut out and ready to roll.  But I have a little something I want to try next before I do that.  So keep watch!  
Tonight it's going to be me, that Debbie Mumm fleece blanket you see in the background that getting a lace edging put on, and a movie.......
