Sketchbook 9.24.14

Lately I’ve been busy working on a bunch of new paper confections. I finally sent this year’s new holiday cards off to the print shop, and I think they might be my best yet. I’m planning to introduce a collection of notepads before the end of October, and I’ve got some new rubber stamp ideas I want to realize too. So much to do and so little time! What have you been working on?

    So much to do and so little time, indeed! Can’t wait for those new designs :)
    I’ve been working on updating my blog, but my lack of skills make for a very simple one, hehe. Drawing is in the waiting room right now, we need more hours in the day!
    Have a good one!

      Let me know if you figure out how to get more hours in your day, I need that too! ;)

    Things to procrastinate. Obviously not a problem you are having. I need someone over me with a big stick saying, “Do it, NOW!” But I would hate it. Love your designs and humor.

    Things to procrastinate = me, up & down!

    I’m working on filling my new jewelry shop up, increasing my skills, and trying to stay on budget. That last part is hard and makes the other two harder. But I’m loving what I’m doing and going slow is better than not going at all. ;)

    Currently I’m taking a new class (self-development oriented) and it is very exciting ! So many things to learn, a lot of possibilities to evolve is energizing.
    The way you wrote “things to procrastinate” is beautiful, I like it ! And I can’t wait to see the notepads :-)

      Aww thanks Jenni! I can sympathize, I always buy way too much at the art store. ;)

    Do you use a local print shop? I’m having the hardest time getting my artwork to print well….colors always seem to be off. Do you have any advice on this or recommend printing things personally? Thanks for sharing! : )

      Yup, I do work with a local print shop! I strongly recommend finding a local printer to work with if at all possible. Any good printer can provide a proof for you to preview colors and make any necessary adjustments before they print your job, and it’s nice to be able to visit in person to see how things are progressing.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
