12 Days of Christmas Crafts:Day 7

......I (heart) this chicken...=) (I hope the person who's getting it also likes it..he he) I stitched it using some Junkitz fabric I've had forever, I think I like it so much that I was saving it..he he...and, of course, felt. I was thinkig the other day that pirate chickens would be pretty cool...lol...
I have so so many ideas whirling in my head for my etsy that I don't even know where to start!!...lol...I have visions of whales and prints and tags. I am now obsessed with the idea of getting a scanner..which I've wanted for a while, and which will make it waaaay easier for me to design things I want to design...because I'm a stickler for clean lines, and I can do that waaaay easier using a pencil and not my trusty wacom pen. At work, I draw with the line tool in Flash, so it's how I've been doing things now..but it seems insanely slow compared to my drawing speed!! Anyways, gonna get a scanner. Using the birthday as an excuse..he he...so fun. There needs to be more time in a day, doesn't there?? I'm dying to sew some things...must make a trip to Michaels this weekend and stock up on supplies!
oh, and check this out!! (click "number one") I was super excited last night when I saw the post he he....yay! I had so much fun making that page, it's not even funny...Still thinking about my word for this year....hmm. Also still contemplating Overlooked...don't wanna jump in if I don't think I can commit to it, ya know? silly, yes. Maybe I'll digi scrap them or something...hmm.
Anyways, happy day!!
Thank you guys so much for all the cute comments yesterday!! Made me smile this morning..he he =)

That chicken is so cute. Pirate chickens sounds so funny. I love it. You should join on overlooked. I think its an opportunity to really think about things you normally wouldn't. SO happy for your win. You HAVE to take pictures of what oyu get. Yay for scanners. I have a crappy all in one. Don't get one of those. I always got to school when I have to scan something...Doesn't work when they are closed for winter break...
