My husband calls Wednesday's 'hump day'.
Half way into the working week, and closer to the weekend than it was was on Monday or Tuesday.
He likes 'hump day', but not as much as he likes Friday at 4pm.
I spent my hump day fine-tuning the last pages of Elefantz Home's next issue, in time to be published this Friday.
Do you like the cover?
It has a real 50's kitschy feel to it, and I'm lovin' the red and blue.
Red has become one of my favourite colours over the last year, and that was something Blossom found amazing. I was always so pastel pink - very predictable - but now she's never quite sure if I'll go for pastels or red. Nice to keep the teens guessing, sometimes.
Yesterday she had an optometrist appointment, and afterwards we did a bit of window shopping. I spotted this cute little purse for $4.98, and lovin' red and white spots as I do, I bought it. But there was another reason behind my purchase.
You see, it looked so 'unfinished'.
Like they'd forgotten to add something.
I collect vintage buttons, and in my mind's eye I was sure I had the perfect one to give my little purse some personality!
Now, is this not the bees knees of little red and white spotty vintage styled coin purses?
Now that this issue has been 'put to bed', I want to spend some time working on other things, just for fun!
I saw this gorgeous Angel pincushion on Kerryanne's blog a couple of weeks ago and knew it was something I'd love to make.
So, I purchased her e-pattern, printed it up, and patiently waited for the mailman to deliver the sweet little Tilda wings I ordered from Kerryanne as well.
Yesterday they arrived, and they are so much lovelier than I imagined...
This will be made over the next few days, and I'll even use some of my Tilda fabric stash purchased in 2010.
If you'd like to purchase the pattern too, just visit Kerryanne HERE at her Shabby Art Boutique blog. It's a pdf and will be emailed to you.
Enjoy your hump day, and the rest of the week.
I hope you find time to sit back and be quiet for a while...I love my quiet times. It's when the nicest ideas begin to bloom.
