Happy dance

We spent some time visiting our printer in Anaheim, learnt about what will probably be the best graphic design software (if the pros use it...), and today received this:

We are officially in business now. We still plan to form an LLC, but the DBA comes first anyway. Now we need to start a bank account. Later we will be creating accounts with UPS. We also need our domain names.

Moving forward, slowly but surely.

Gift Tags - Handmade Romantic 3D Tags - $15.00

Set of 4 coordinating hand made oval gift tags in muted warm pinks and browns. I hand painted, stamped and aged sheet music, which I stiffened with card. I made double layered, hand cut lotus flowers in several varieties of pretty scrapbook papers. Each gently spinnable flower has a unique button center. I added the sentiments with rub on letters, and finished the tags with an eyelet and matching ribbon & yarn tie ....

Cupid's Key Art Doll in Spring colors - $45.00

I love the pretty pastel colors of this 8.5 inch art doll. Her body is a quilter's cotton with an old gold wavy print. I hand colored the aqua petals for her skirts and of course beautiful beads, sequins and colored buttons adorn her. When I painted her face, I added a light blue makeup to help her blue eyes pop. She's quite thoughtful - perhaps she's watching out for Cupid's arrow.

Humungous Tote of Crocheted Plastic Bag Yarn - $120.00

25" tall, approx 30" diameter circular tote basket with double handles integrated into rim, which I crocheted entirely from post-consumer plastic sacks - at least 300 bags were saved from being trashed. I like to think I saved a few dolphins and seals too. I used a size J/6.00mm crochet hook in double and single crochet. The plarn is 1.5" wide, which makes a nicely flexible cloth.
