Full of Play

I just found this lovely listening to some Kate Nash this morning: "This little girl she grew up and moved away - and she, she lived her life full of risk and full of play. She lived her life with so much to say." Loves it. :)

And here's the most recent play-time fun project:

I really just wanted to embroider something, a fun something, so I doodled the pattern on a sheet of cotton and went to town with my rainbow assortment of colors! Whee! I matted it so its also ready-to-frame - covered the boring cream matte with a lovely textured Bazzill blue cardstock. It lives here. I loves embroidery! I'm totally doodling embroidery patterns and ideas left and right, too. he he....it takes me so long to gather all the doodles and supplies and packaging materials for new goodies, though, but one day plan on seeing more embroidery in the shop! And earrings. Working on those designs tonight...and paper tags. Really. Truly. Someday...lol.

Annnnd...super-fun-exciting news....a lovely girl commissioned a painting of a monster from me a little teeny while ago, and the painting is done! So, the launch date for a new cute monster print is now Tuesday Aug. 26! (Lets just say that Charlie has a girlfriend....) If you haven't signed up for the Bubbly Shnooks newsletter yet, the first one ever is coming out Tuesday morning with the print launch - so sign up on the close-to-the-top right side of the blog if you'd like to hear the news first (or e-mail me and I'll add you to the list!)! So excited!

We just walked back in from finding a desk outside. Yay for free worktables! Once my workspace is set up (I will be moving desks tomorrow, hopefully!) and my projects are all under control and shop supplies are organized, I plan on devoting a lot more time to little Bubbly Shnooks and designing new goodies - its just plain fun! I didn't get much of the necessary stuff done this weekend, but we did do absolutely nothing yesterday - watched 'Smart People', and some old-school Disney. Chilled. Had a nap. It was much-needed. Now, we are trying to nab a place to getaway to for the upcoming long weekend that's not booked solid, madly finishing work, and dreading the 5am-for-work-early wakeup coming at us tomorrow. Noooooo...these weekends go by way to fast, no? Hope everyone is well!

Awesome embroidery. I have to do some for a friend she has us all doing a patch for a quilt. I am so scared. I don't really know how to do it and I don't want to mess it up. Any hints or tips?
