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.

Hand-detailing suddenly obsesses me.

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

Hand-work, ahhhhh–always relaxing.

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).

Pinterest Wednesday

I’m changing things up a little bit around here to free up more time to work on orders.  Attempting to blog 5 days a week was just making me crazy (or making me ignore the blog), so I’m scaling back to 3 days a week.

That said, who knows what will REALLY happen.

So, since I really enjoy sharing my Pinterest finds with you all, I’m moving Pinterest Friday to Wednesday!

My favorite finds of the week (and, as always, you can follow me here:  http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/):

Pinterest Friday

Ah, Friday again!  Looking forward to a weekend filled with gardening, sewing & a crawfish boil!  Here’s to hoping the rain holds off for the outdoor activities, and that you have a fabulous weekend yourself!
