You KNOW I had to do it! I had those twelve nice plaques just staring at me from the table. I like them a lot. Sometimes with my new patterns, if I am really pleased with the results, I just keep them out a little bit and I admire them. This lasts about a week or so (Except with patterns that I really like and intend to keep – like my Polar Bear Pull Toy which I wouldn’t part with for the world!)
(Just mentioning him gave me an excuse to show him! He is packed away until winter when I display him!)
So . . .
Yesterday after I got all caught up with the mail and things, I decided that all those new Damask designs needed just a little something to send them over the top. I really liked how they came out, but there was still room to take them a step further.
So I got out my case of rhinestones and went to work . . .
I am just going to show a snapshot of each:
I will take some better pictures today and I will post them with the products on my site. I am also going to post the pictures as projects here on the Lumberjocks site in my Project Gallery, but I will do one per day so I don’t over do it here on the site. I find that I always wait to post things like this and then nothing new seems to make it to my Gallery page. I have to be more diligent.
I also want to give another shout out to Rhinestone Canada for their amazing products! Every time I “play” with them, I think how fortunate I was to find them. The company is top-notch and they have not only wonderful service, but wonderful products at really great prices. If you ever are looking for some “bling”, I highly recommend them!
Today I will be playing with some new things. I have about five or six directions that I can head – which is great considering I am a designer! My biggest problem is that I don’t know where to start first! I want to do everything at once!
I want to thank everyone for the tremendous response to these little plaques. They have been doing wonderfully on the site, which means that lots of you want to make them and it really makes me feel good to be doing designs that are so well-received.
The encouragement and support that I receive from you all is absolutely wonderful, and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
Once again today I realize how fortunate I am in so many aspects of my life.
I wish you all a wonderful day today! It is a beautifully sunny and warm day here in Nova Scotia. Not hot, not too cool. Just ‘perfect.’
Happy Thursday to you all!
