And, I’ll just put this right here, too.  I have no words, I think many of us are still rather shattered, and I can only wish peace for his family and the ultimate quiet of those inner demons for him.

Embroidered, Embellished, Pinterest Favorites

Things have started taking off in the shop this week.

Working-working-working!

Orders rolling in–early birds for Halloween are my favorites.

When things start taking off, and I start getting so busy, I always find myself getting enamored with techniques that force me to slow down.  That invite me to take that comfy seat and grab a cup of milky tea.

Anything that forces one to slow down, to take their time, to focus and to relax.

Pinterest Wednesday

Still feeling a wee bit sick, and so the week has kind of been zipping past me, while I feel like I’ve been puttering around in a fog.

Ideas have been coming along, and I realized that I need to start building up stock for Halloween (and the Endless Nights Vampire Ball).

But that’s all besides the point!  It’s time for my weekly favorite pins!

Pinterest Wednesday

Another Wednesday? What?  This week is flying by.  Had a little photo shoot Monday morning, and I’m still editing images from that.  (if you’re a fan of my facebook page, you’ve seen some of the new images and items for sale)  Hope to have some to share in Friday’s post.

Until then, you get my favorite Pinterest finds of the week!

As another Wednesday has dawned, so has another weekly installment of Pretty Stuff I Pinned:

In no particular order, and credited where possible (side note: wow, is it HARD sometimes to hunt down sources–and this week I failed more than succeeded, sadly).
