Sewcial Butterfly
is currently under contruction. I started playing with site design this weekend. As a result, the graphics on my blog went M.I.A. as a result of deleting a folder off my server. DOH!

I updated my main page last nite. It was the spring color scheme. I decided I wanted something different for summer.

So I was playing around with some new photoshop brushes and came up with a new site design. Over the next week, all my pages (including my SB Myspace which missed the last update) will be transfered over to the new color scheme.

Wish me luck!

Custom mobile for The Gurule’s

Sunday, May 20, 2007 0 Permalink 0

About a month ago I took in to work a mobile I made for my nephew and sister. My friend JG fell in love with it and comissioned one for his wife to celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary.

He and I sketched out the mobile and I got to work. It is almost to a T the mobile we sketched out. I spent several weeks putting it together. I came across an obstacle or 2. The cats I originally wanted wouldn’t work with the overall look and the french toast I tried to make just didn’t look like…well, toast. I found creative solutions to move past those obstacles and this is the finished product. I am quite pleased.

The Superman/girl logo turned out 10 times better than I had imagined. :D I wish I had taken better pics of this thing. But all in all I am very proud.

I had breakfast with JG & Nicole this morning and delivered the mobile to them. It was an instant hit. We enjoyed breakfast and made plans to make a habit of getting together to enjoy good eats and good conversation.

JG handed me a check for payment of the gift…and it was $20- more than what we agreed. It was a pleasant surprise and quite flattering. I spent about a total of 8 hrs on the project and the Gurules said my time and creativity are worth it. :D

They want to place an order for a baby mobile for a friend’s baby when they return from their 2nd honeymoon.

After breakfast I went thrifting and came up with a couple of finds. More on those later. All in all, the day so far has been a wonderful Sunday!

I sold the last pin cusion in my shop today. It will find a home with a nice customer in Canada. Her name is Maria. So I guess I better get on the ball and start sewing to fill ‘er up again. :tear: My 1st wave of items sold out. Yay! I can do it.

I’m off to do some crafting. Wish me luck!
