In the meantime, I'm still trying to work on some Easter cards. I've got a craft show next weekend so I need to keep creating. I'm going to try to pack my materials dead last and unpack them first thing. I did do one card last night that I was preety happy with. I have a few more cut out on my desk that I just need to put together and decorate. I should get one that, lol!

She also reuses cardboard food packaging to make fun notebooks in a variety of sizes.
I was lucky enough to trade some of my work for one of her beautiful books and it has quickly become my new sketch book. I hope that you'll check out her shop and purchase in full confidence knowing that you will be receiving a top quality book that you will cherish for years to come.

I tried out a new product line at the show and I seemed to get some good responses. I did sell one to a fellow etsy seller but that was it. I was so sure that I wasn't going to have any of them left to take home. But their loss and etsy's gain! They are so fabulous and I'm so excited to start making these a central part of my shop. I just love them! I have these two up in my shop now and there are 8 more to be listed in the coming week.
On a sad note, my grandmother passed away on Friday. Really more of a relief for the family because she was no longer mentally with us and it was starting to take a huge toll on my grandfather. Isaac and I leave to go home for the funeral tomorrow. I know she's gone but I also know it won't become real until I see her.

Chris and Christian did have really awesome outfits though. I'm glad Chris won because I feel like Christian rode his shirt tail when he won a few weeks ago. I mean that whole huge crazy collar thing was all Chris and that's what the judges really loved about that outfit. Christian is getting super mad though that he isn't winning challenges. You could tell he was so peaved tonight.
I have a love hate relationship with Christian. He says the GREATEST things but then he can be annoying because he's so full of himself. Most of the time he does good work and I really like it but he has his sucky moments just like everyone else. My favorite quote from tonight has to be by him though. I just cracked up when he said "She's one of the fiercest people I know which is pretty major because I've met some fierce bitches in my life." Oh what great things you do say Christian!
I also got another corner rounder. I go through them so quickly! So I'm enjoying myself punching the corners off of eight more pocket albums in progress as well as about 15 more sets of mini cards. I hope to get them finished and listed soon. I can do everything up until the sealing of the tin. Then I'll have to decide if I want to go with the new sealer or the old one. Only time will tell. The only down side of the new one is that it takes about 3 days to fully cure. Booooo!
For dinner tonight I made one of my favorite meals, Tillapia with saffron yellow rice and beans. Yum! It really couldn't be an easier meal to make either. Cook your Tillapia in a skillet sprinkling seasoned salt on both sides. Then, get a packet of Saffron yellow rice and zap it. Finally, get some black beans and zap them. Whala! Oh and don't forget the lemon juice squeezed on top (lime juice is also good)

We sped back here on Sunday so that we could go to our friend's Super Bowl Party. We were really looking forward to it and getting to socialize with other people. We're growing tired of looking only at eachother all day long, lol. It was a great time with good food and to top it off the Giants actually won!
I had a reality check yesterday and realized that my craft show in Savage, MD is in less than two weeks so I've been trying to kick my crafting into high gear. Despite that, I feel like I've run into a million and one other things that needed my attention and therefore haven't gotten much more done. The rest of the week will be better though. I'm gonna make sure of that! I did manage to get an Easter card done today for a custom order in my etsy shop and I listed this tin that I finished last night.
