two new things to post about
i sent off the very last package to northlight for my new book 'pretty little felts'. everything is done, the projects, the photoshoot, the instructions, the edits, and the little zipper purses are on their way to the marketing department.
it is a wonderful place to be here at the start of summer. i haven't seen all the images in color and much of the design work will be a surprise when i see it all together, but i am so thrilled. you can see the cover on amazon already even though it won't be out until this fall. my first booksigning will be at art and soul this october, so very excited to go!
i sent off this batch of wool zipper purses complete with hand watercolored business cards and tags to the marketing department. inside is a cellophane bag of pastel jordan almonds just to give them a cool feel. they are going to be sent with my book to the big buying accounts. i found these amazing wool skirts at a new shop nearby called the coal umbrella. all four of them came in the same shipment and must have been from the 50's. i was crazy about the great plaids. each purse has its own zipper pull wired on with sterling silver wire and each one has an embroidered design.
my other new thing is i opened an etsy shop this morning. i haven't figured out how to edit my profile and i only have one item listed so far just to see how it would look, but i loaded the link for my shop and it works! (way too easy)
i have been busy making things to sell at the art nest midsummer artist sale in two weeks and thought i would post some on my shop before i go.
the artist sale is going to be so amazing, i am hoping to buy a necklace from stephanie lee. i still have quite a bit of packing of supplies left to do, but i can't wait. there is only one spot left, so if you are free june 24-29th send me an email and i will try to get you in. :)
