So….My friend, Gay, has asked me to write a guest tutorial for her blog. I’ve been thinking and wondering what in the world could I tutor someone on. This is a great idea that she’s had to attract more traffic to both our blogs and our etsy shops. I have added Gay’s blog site and her etsy to my list of links. Be sure to check them out. She’ll impress you with her craftiness! I sure hope it works. I have not added anything new to Etsy lately as nothing has sold. I think our items are really pretty and I love the art that I do, so I cannot imagine why no one is buying. Also, the prices are phenomenal. When I get the tutorial written, I will also post it here on my blog. And this has inspired me to possibly photo journal all my endeavors, in case I need to write a tutorial on it!
I think I”ve decided what to tutor you on……drumroll, please.
I will do a simple shape painting. The finished product will be a nutcracker. I wanted to do this painting last christmas but I got too busy, so I’ve saved it for this year! Great timing, right?
I’ve also started sewing finally! I made some simple pants for Laila, and embellished a tee to match. I also have embellished another tee for her to wear while watching cornhusker football with her daddy. And I’ve made a hooter hider and a burp rag. YES…..I LOVE MY NEW MACHINE!!!! and i can’t wait to use it again. I have plans to make a plain, white dress so that my bestie can embroider something Christmasy on the front! I’ll share those photos as that is completed.
Motherhood is amazing….I totally recommend it!
