Why so windy?
I'm avoiding going outside to take pictures because everything will just blow away. I suppose that's for the best, since I have to go into our shop and start two custom bags and finish a custom cuff.
December is almost here and I really haven't begun the Christmas shopping I promised myself I would begin in September. Well, I did start some shopping, but once I receive the item in the mail I get too excited to wait and give it to the thought-of person early.
I think I need to start shopping around for some trades, too.
And speaking of SALES (whaa?)
I'm having a shipping SALE on my cuff bracelets until December 24th (see my last post)
Dramatically reduced shipping for everyone!

The Weekend Rush

After a wonderful day of lying about, eating, and enjoying the company of friends and family..... I'm not ready to go back to work. I want those four-day weekends we had as kids.
Ah, well. Back to work. Enjoy the new cuff!

Happy Thanksgiving!
I wish my family still ate the early-bird special (where everyone eats around 2 or 3 in the afternoon) but since my sister works this morning we're scheduled for dinner fun around 5 or 6pm. I can't wait that long! It smells good now!
plus, check out this cool hat pattern by AngelaCatirina.

Fancy and Fun for December

Not only did I finish my ornaments for work:But I made some little car ornaments to sell online! I'll get them pictured here tomorrow.
But today, I'd like to show off some new cuffs!
This awesome green and brown number is listed on Coriandr!
And this powerful red and blue is on Etsy!
I'm still feeling a little sniffly, but much better! Those sick days are such a bummer when you can't get anything done! I ended up watching House Party movies on the couch instead of leather-working yesterday.

*Sniffle Sniffle*

Now is not the time to be getting a head cold!
Hopefully with fluids and rest it will be gone tomorrow. Because I have to make more of these:

Ornaments for our Christmas Tree at (the night job)! They put it up last week (why so soon, I don't know) but it didn't have many ornaments and looked a little dreary so I made up two simple ornaments to hang. My boss said she'd pay me to make 30 more!

I need some chicken soup :(

It's a Sticky day

I was on a sticker-making rampage earlier.
Hopefully I'll be able to get them listed later today.

But what should I work on in the meantime? I have to go into the shop so something leathery. I want to try my hand at a Christmas ornament, but the last one was a bust. I made a star but the leather was too thick for me to hand-stitch properly. Ah, well. Maybe I can figure out something more simple.

Cuff it Up

In hopes of some early holiday sales I've been listing more of my new cuffs.
Here's one of my latest:I've been doing some early holiday shopping myself. There's so many awesome gifts-to-be out there, it's hard to choose! But here's some items on my own wish list:
How cute are these parrot slippers by Piddies? I've been wanting a pair of slippers for a while (believe it or not, I've never owned a pair) and these would totally rock!
And I just want this weird tote by Meatbagz. They have veggie ones, too.And there's nothing more to say about this awesome sweater from Junkprints other than "I want I want"! Oh, hell, you could buy me anything from Junkprints and I'll be happy :)
They have everything from kickin' bags to re-claimed one-of-a-kind fashions!

My new Stamp

I got a logo stamp this week from Jackbear!
Check out his custom designs:Now I need to head to Michael's for some ink pads and cleaner. And then I'll be able to stamp all my cuffs! Awesome!

Boom Shakka Boom

I am listing furiously online today, as I totally need the money. Allen has a bunch of wicked cool tooled cuffs that I need to put up, but here's one to start:It's a caterpillar!

I'm still working on my Monkey comic. Not as much as I should be but I've promised myself to dedicate this evening after work and tomorrow to full drawing mode. I'm probably going to have to have Allen model some poses for me to sketch, also.

I'll post the progress as soon as I have some to report.

Sticker Madness

I've made some more fun stickers!
These ones are tiny craft magazines I cut from a 1990 Craft magazine insert:
And these ones are trees! (duh)
I cut these from one of my 1960's Golden Book Dictionary sets.

It's a new day

So here are some things to eyeball:
I really want to get some things accomplished today, as my spirit is soaring. I'm going to work with some polymer clay, since I haven't done that in awhile. Maybe work on some Christmas ornaments? Ooh, and look:

I made myself a new pair of sandals as a mock-up for a new design. They're pretty cozy and cute!
