Oh yeah, baby.
I'm making some changes.

... to my blog.  Have you noticed?

In my quest to become more professional, I've been doing some things here behind the scenes.  "Like what?" you may ask.  Well, here's a list of things:

  • Do a craft show (upcoming!)
  • Find better, faster ways to make things (Done! ... and ongoing)
  • Get an official logo - DONE!!!!!!!!!

Check THAT out! 

Isn't it awesome?!  You can also see it as my current Blogger profile pic.  I'm still working on other ways to incorporate it into the blog.  (Still learning the ins-and-outs of Blogger's layout and format.)

My new logo was brought to fruition by Kimberly (I can call her Kimmy) Brooks over at Kimberly Brooks Photography.   I had a temporary logo I had been using for a bit, but it needed to be better.  I sent her what I had and what I liked/disliked about it, she applied her magic and VOILA!  A new logo was created!

I knew I wanted something simple and graphic that would translate easily to labels, tags, stamps and such.  She knew I liked the combo of blocky letters with a scripted font.  And BAM!  A logo! 

Don't you love that wonky D?! 
And that sexy tail on the S?! 
Oh, that S just begs you to follow her little tail.
... minx.

Can I just say Kimmy and I must share a wavelength or something???  (I won't discuss the juvenile jokes that made us giggle like five-year olds -- for that would be juvenile!)  But SRSLY.  She totally "got me" and seemed to read my mind.  She rocks! 

Can you believe that the logo thing and web stuff isn't even her FAVORITE thing to do?!  She's a photographer at heart.  I've linked her website above - you should go check it out.  She's good, y'all.

I'm a Slacker


It's true.
I ain't done nuthin' lately. 
It's not that I didn't WANT to do things.

I just haven't been uber-motivated.  We've had weather that's been all over the board lately.  And the constant changes in air pressure really screw with my sinuses and allergies. 

Oh.  And I've had tendonitis or something.  Written off to -- and I quote the doctor -- "overuse and abuse."  I'm just telling people I've been kicking too much ass and I over did it. 

But wait! 
I did something today!

Isn't this denim clutch FANTASTIC!?!?!
It's all ... ORANGE and stuff!

Ooo...and it has a magnetic snap closure.
Love those.

A little close up of the couching.
Oh, yes. 
I made the cording myself.
THEN I couched it onto the denim.

It's all orange and scribble-y.
I love making cords.
I need to make more.

And attach 'em to stuff.
It's pretty.

I didn't get a good shot of the side seams of the clutch.  You can see the orange lining fabric along the edge.  It's really cool.  Oh, well.  You'll just have to take my word for it!

I made this for someone's birthday (she knows who she is!)
