A productive weekend

Everytime I am given a three day weekend, I feel as if I've been given a gift! A whole extra day to create! Saturday we did some shopping and I listed a couple of journals. Sunday I finished and listed a couple more before we went to spend the day in Seaside and Cannon Beach! Monday I made and listed five more gorgeous journals! I was busy! While in Seaside, I took a few photos of their carousel as well. I will be editing and listing those soon.

I've become obsessed with making journals... for a couple of reasons. One because I want to get ahead of the game to free up time this summer with my boys. And two, because I've been getting a lot of special requests for custom journals.

I distributed a small stack of my rack cards at a gallery area in Cannon Beach. I also enquired at a gallery recommended by a friend... to submit work, I must make a photo cd and mail it to them. They don't even have an email address. It was an amazingly funky cool gallery, and I will submit a cd... if only for the experience of doing so.

Today it's back to work. Hopefully I can keep the momentum going with my shop. I did discover last week that on slow days I can sew journals if I have all the stuff with me. And I have put some basic photo editing programs on my computer at work.

I hope that this wonderful four day week fits each of you perfectly!
