We were supposed to be getting some rain this weekend here is San Diego but I don't see a cloud in the sky. I'm kind of sad, I was looking forward to some cooling rain and a break in the temperature. Instead, I had to turn on the fans at 8:45am and it looks like it's going to be HOT again today.

I've been playing with the idea for these cards all this last week. I was finally able to get into the craft room on Friday and put them into paper. I'm very pleased with how they've turned out and plan on making more soon. Definitely a Fall and Christmas one. I can pretty much make them in any color or theme. It's a very versatile design.
I can't recall ever seeing a Halloween wedding card so I made one!
This card is a special one for a baby shower at work this next week. I might make some Baby Cakes cards for the shop though!

My memo clips have really taken off recently. I've sold 4 sets in the last couple of weeks! I have to get in the craft room to make more soon.

About 2 weeks ago, I was contacted on Etsy by a local vendor here in San Diego. She is opening a new space at a kind of co-op called The Grove in South Park. She ended up purchasing 5 different items from me and if they sell well, she'll be back for more. She's also checking into selling my cards there. They already have a vendor who sells cards but mine are a completely different style so she's hoping that she'll get the ok. I'm so excited! I've never approached a store about selling my items and to have one approach me, well, I'm just over the moon.
So, if you're in San Diego, visit The Grove at Juniper & 30th!

It's been a long time since we've had a kitten in the house. I had forgotten how cute they are. I'd also forgotten how annoying they are! He got a manicure tonight so hopefully I won't be covered in little scratches anymore.
Our older kitty, Killian, is tolerating him alright. Although, he does give me these sad looks that seem to say "Why? Why did you do this to me?"
The kids are completely enthralled with him. Even my husband, who really did not want another cat, is taken with him. Me, I'm totally in love!

I had planned on doing featured sellers posts on here but I just never seemed to get around to it. So, I'm going to start doing Fun Finds, just things that catch my eye that I find on Etsy. Here's hoping I can remember!
Up first, rubber stamps by AsspocketProductions. I know, the name cracks me up! There's a great story behind how this shop came to be called that, it's in her Profile. Great stamps, very unique!
Next up, buttonsbyrobin. I found these beautiful buttons because Robin has joined my Embellishments group on Flickr. I'm so glad she did! I'm so drawn to the birds but she has tons of designs and they are all as beautiful.

It started with a 7 item sale on Sunday. That's the biggest number of items I've had in one sale. Then I found out that my Mini File Folders were in this Monday Morning treasury
Thank you to all the treasury makers for thinking my items are good enough for your beautiful treasuries. Thank you to the admin who picked my file folders for the Gift Guide. Thank you to my customers this week. You've all helped make this my best Etsy week ever and I am humbled.
