Origami Addiction

And I guess you could say I'm becoming addicted to making treasuries as well. This one began with the fine silver origami honu by Hapa. This treasury is located at:

Created my First Treasury!

I just curated my first Treasury ever! I had been thinking about it for a while, and as I was browsing through my favorites, I came across laurali's work, and her creamsicle kitten print really struck me for some reason, even though I'm normally more of a dog person ;) It became the inspiration for the color scheme that I used for my collection. Please check it out, and I hope you enjoy it!

This is one of two custom orders I've done lately -- both for weddings!

The customer liked my red bridal bouquet that I had posted on Etsy, but she wanted a couple of changes. One, was to replace the small gold cranes I used as "filler" with silver, to match her wedding colors. The second was to change out the white ribbon that was wrapped around the stems of the original, with a ribbon that better matched the bouquet. This was the result.

I'm Back!

And this blog is starting to bear a disturbing resemblance to my old childhood diaries...the ones that can have up to 5 years or more between entries. At least I didn't wait 5 years to make a new blog post.
Well, I officially re-opened shop on August 1st, after making sure that all of my inventory made the trip safely. My things probably had a better trip than I did! Crazy weather forced hubby and I to make an unexpected overnighter in Dallas (we landed right after some tornadoes struck) and when we finally got onto our rescheduled flight to Atlanta, we ended up running into more crazy weather -- a thunderstorm -- and were forced to go into a holding pattern over the Atlanta airport for almost an hour.
I miss Hawaii like crazy. We played tourist a bit at Turtle Bay and in Waikiki before we left, so I have a lot of great pictures, including a few that I will probably end up using as inspiration for some future artwork. I just have to figure out which computer they are all stored on, but I think it will be a lot easier to look at when I'm not feeling so emotional about it.
