Crazy, Crazy, Day....

I don't know where the day went today.
I looked at the clock one minute it was 7:00 a.m., I looked at it what seemed only like a few hours later and it was 2:30.

I've been trying to get some work done on a custom order and make some Art Square
Brooches for my Etsy shops. I have two shops Clevelandgirlie and Embellishment.
The brooches/pins came out great. I made them in sumptuous autumn colors with some really cool copper and pewter embellishments. They're right around 2 inches (give or take), the backs are hand painted and finished with a nice pin so they can be worn or displayed. They're lots of work to make as they are made with lots of layers that are painted, distressed, heated, etc., and then more layers applied. But they are worth the work.



Anywhoo - now I'm cleaning up and packing as tomorrow morning at 7:00 I'm off to Key Largo to see my dad. I'll be back on Thursday so look for me then.

Have a great week and I'll see you soon.

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
