Look What's In the Shop Now!

It's finished and I'm really pleased with it. The work of months and months and several people in addition to myself have made this possible. I love the way the shop looks. I hope my mom is proud of me!  This is the first design you learn. Simple!  Here is the intermediate design. Easy, too! And here's what it all leads to... I hope you will stop by the shop and take a look. It's not hard to learn and I'm always available for questions. Happy Thanksgiving week to you all! If I drank, I'd have one tonight in celebration!

Guess What Happens Next Week?

One very fancy tutorial will be ready by next Tuesday. I, for one, will be very thankful.


I started a new job at my library today. Although the work was all stuff I'd done before, I'd never had time to do it uninterrupted. For the past seven years, I've been working at branch libraries where I've been interrupted constantly. I know there are infrequent stretches of time where I've been able to work for maybe a half hour without being asked a question or something, but today was u.n.i.n.t.e.r.r.u.p.t.e.d. time. And I didn't know what to do with myself. I actually had to concentrate. Because of this, I am mentally exhausted. So, here. Look at a picture of a paper ball I made a few days ago. It's very pretty. But way too big to be on my Christmas tree. I must needs make a smaller one. And then about a billion more to give away as presents. :)
