I don't like mondays 2

If you've followed my posts before you know that Monday's are not my favorite. They rush upon you, remind you of all you didn't finish last week...plus my kids are adverse to taking naps on Mondays. So in order to combat that feeling of useless-ness I've taken to posting a bit of last weeks accomplishments on Monday. This weekend I was able to finish a bunch of goodies for this weekends shows (The Vintage Marketplace & Sew Funky). Plus two cards for challenges and a bunch of other goodies!

My card for the Stamping 411 Sketch of the week. Love the simplicity and they fall feeling to it. Colors: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake.

My first ever card for the Paper Players. A Shabby Chic Christmas card for my LPS Stocking Swap partner.

And some new creations I've just finished!

Sun is Shining

It's another gorgeous day here in Southern California. Woke up to the sun shining in my eyes...so glorious. My hubby and I went shopping last week hit up REI and Anthropologie. I'm madly in love with Anthropologie....just never get around to shopping. Love Love this shower curtain...just need to talk the husband into having it in our neutral bathroom.

A card I just created...I added little pearls as accents on the butterfly. Also I dusted it with Champagne Mist to add a bit of sparkle.

Plus one of my customers sent me this cute shot of the pinwheels she purchased from me at her daughters party. Cute right. She did a great job of creating a very cute ensemble.

Its a Nice Day for a White Wednesday

I know its Tuesday but my day tomorrow is swamped so an early White Wednesday post and a few new goodies being posted in my etsy shop as well!

"A Grateful Heart is a Happy Heart"

Another of my limited edition Mini Christmas Stockings. This one is all about Shabby-Chic-Ness. Available in my Etsy Shop Earth Cookie Creations

Some of my vintage paper prints.

And finally my Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge Card. I used the Presto Pattern paper with some rose red ink & spritzed with silver foil. Then I embossed my image with Pewter embossing powder & sponged then colored with stampin write markers in blushing bride & rose red. I like the way the card turned out however not thrilled about the saturation of the colors....need to change up the palette.

Queen Bee Finale

Another amazing Queen Bee show. Thank you to Jessica & Mique for putting on the best handmade market! Can't wait for the next show....I'm even contemplating upgrading to a larger size booth. Sold out of a lot of goodies that I brought. My vintage santa claus wrapping paper flew out the door....luckily I still have about 20rolls I just finished rolling out...if you'd like to purchase some email me. All my lampshades...gone. I've made a few more for the Vintage Marketplace & Sew Funky. Time to get cracking on some more. The hubby and I made a little getaway of the market. Spent the night at the Hilton and did a little shopping & dinner at Bucca Di Beppos. Now trying to get everything unpacked and then repacked for the Vintage Marketplace. Plus my Heartsy vouchers will be up for purchase on November 30th!! A great way to get more for your buck in my Etsy shop.

I don't like mondays

Mondays...seems like all the stuff I should have caught up on during the weekend or put off last week always catch up with me on Monday. By catch up with me I mean they take me over like a tidal wave and I try to finish them all on MONDAY! So here's a post of some goodies I finished last night in the wee hours of Monday morning.

Countdown to Christmas Garland

I have wanted to create on of these forever so I finally buckled down and did a bunch of them last night. I've posted them in my etsy shop Earth Cookie

Plus I created a card with some leftover supplies from my last class and created it using Stamping 411 Saturday Card Sketch. I really like the way it turned out except the flash makes it hard to see the sentiment. Supplies used: Soft Suede cardstock & ink, Very Vanilla cardstock, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Bells & Boughs stamp set, gold embossing powder, Champagne Mist, Soft Sky Ink, Basic Black Cardstock, Scallop Edge Punch.

Only a few more days left until the Queen Bee Market...I am so excited. Just finished rolling out some more of my vintage Santa wrapping paper and tagging everything. Plus I've got some more scrappy lampshades I'll be premiering at the show. Swing by Del Mar if you can!

Saturday, November 12, 2011

One week and counting!! So thrilled and I can't wait...and I think I may be prepared this time. Come visit me at the Queen Bee Market in Del Mar.

White Wednesday

A glorious winter day here in California. Still a little wet on the ground from this weekends rain day! We had a very productive day...dropped off more handmade goodness at the Make Good in San Diego. Love that shop. I'm participating in a home boutique on Friday from 3-6 in Riverside, CA. Looking forward to having a few hours off from the kiddos even if it is working at the same time.

My White Wednesday post is this gorgeous treasury from Etsy.

I am not a ballerina...defintly don't have the figure for it but there is such a draw to all things ballerina. These gorgeous toe-shoes are sooooo lush and gorgeous.
