Having moved 6 months ago, i find that i have accumulated many, many odds and ends that i “might need to use some day.” I am making a concerted effort to approach this day and it’s creations as the perfect day for using whatever i uncover! The creating is the joy, but using an old saved thing is a bonus. The embroidered net on this card (and 3 others) was in a box of treasures from Martha T.; all textile and apparel fragments from possibly several women’s lives. Thank you, Bets, for passing them to me.
As i recover from the flu this week, i am going to change my focus on my blog. I have gotten over the photograph hurdle. I will now be posting things that i create and the processes. Its time to get some things ready for selling on Etsy (i signed up for an online shop there two years ago!), so i am working through the particular hurdles that come with that endeavor. Tonight i finally mastered cropping and reducing my images to be accepted by the site. Still have to figure out other aspects, but you can see my soon-to-not-be-empty shop at firstname.lastname@example.org
