Handmade love...

....the thing I love most about Saturdays is that I get to sleep in..ahh..I mean, really, usually when I get to sleep in, that's the day I wake up at 7:30 in the morning...but today...I slept in, Lovely. Heaven. We're staying inside trying to finsih up some stuff today and become significantly less busy. Ahhh...so excited! So excited to not be busy soon...lol...We took a short break and walked around the neighbourhood just now..there's a small community craft showing going on at the community centre, so we checked it out..there were some cute vintage cards and slide necklaces that made e want to create...=) Sipped on Chai Nog coffees and got some air...it's chilly here but it's a nice clear day. =) We stopped in to Ten Thousand Villages, a really cool handmade-from-around-the-world shop, and there are some gorgeous old compasses and mortar and pessels and handmade beaded ornaments and such..we stopped in there last weekend when Mandy was here and oohed and ahhed for a while at all the goodies! I saw this lil sheep last time I was there and had to buy it for Z/our Christmas tree:

...because he sometimes aspires to be a sheppard in the Bulgarian mountains, I couldn't resist buying it...he he...Today I have abandoned this:

..haphazard pile of goodies and inspo and sewn paper that I started working on last night. It felt good, so good to crack out the sewing machine last night and stitch some felt and some paper...I used to sew everything from tote bags to a quilt to tailored suit jackets, I loved it...i actually wanted to go into Fashion design and illustration before i decided on animation. =) Anyways, finished projects will come soon, I'll be sure to share them...=) They're going to be my Red Velvet Art ornament swap babies...Anyways, that's all for today! Hope everyone has a great weekend! =)

Oh...and I hope the videos below work for you! Sorry, Marie! They seem to be working on my computer, so maybe it's a PC thing? Not sure...=(
