I will be traveling to Italy from May 14th - June 4th. I'm going to keep my shop open during that time and have my mom take care of orders. You probably won't see my blog/twitter updated though. I also won't be able to answer any questions or be able to do custom orders during that time. I don't get a lot of orders so I don't think it'll be any problem, but it'd be nice to see I got new orders when I get back.
We have to bring a journal with us to Italy (it's a school trip). So I figured I'd decorate the moleskine I bought with a map of Italy. For some reason, I'm not sure where I put it right now (hopefully I'll find it soon), but here's an in the process photo:
I think it'd also be nice to just decorate moleskines like that in the future. I worked on a lot of new items this week. I made a bunch of new cards and about 5 new journals. I really like how they all turned out. I got a few up sofar:
Leopard Print Journal
The fabric for this is leopard print and it's soft so it's a lot of fun to touch. I use to really like leopard print things when I was younger (I think when it was more popular) so I get excited when I see leopard print things. I always wanted to make a leopard print journal and I thought this fabric was perfect.
This Little Piggy Journal
This is based on the This Little Piggy Box.
Crayon Hearts Thank You Greeting Card
I bought a set of multicolored crayons off etsy and I was playing around with them when I made this card. The hearts are drawn with the crayons.
I also contacted a few shops about putting my items in their shop. I got an email back from one local one saying they're shop closed down. Hopefully, I'll hear back from more places though and maybe be abl eto do some craft shows this summer.
