It is refreshing to be home again. Not only to sleep in my own bed and hug on my little kids (of course), but now I can start scratchin' at those irresistibly- itchy projects I sketched up while I was away. Here and there, at least. First, I have some emails and interviews to complete, as well as some fabric strike-offs to sort through (yes, round one is in the house!).
So, check out my Flutterby Flip-Book mini album. I used an old-fashioned wooden clothespin for the butterfly body. A variety of cardstock wings make up the album's many pages, with a sprinkling of flowers and miniature butterflies thrown in for good measure. The perfect album for celebrating a special event, a summer-load of activities, a new baby, a birthday, quirky kid-drawings, etc.
This is the workshop I taught at Inspired in North Carolina this month -- the stinkin' cutest-est album ever. We kitted up some extra albums, with full-on illustrated instructions included, so you can make an album too if you like. (Or maybe set up your kids or grandkids with a kit -- gotta keep those children engaged over the summer. My two have been squabbling all day.) So, if you're interested, hop on over to the HB store. Limited supply! When they're gone, they're gone.
Freshcut™ is in the same boat too. Free Spirit's warehouse is plum out of my Freshcut collection now. We received our last supply. Though the demand for that collection never subsided, the supply certainly now has, so last call for Freshcut! Heck, here's a discount while you're at it. Use the code "AlmostGone" through June 1st for 10% off any fabrics from my Freshcut collection. We'll all sigh as it trickles away.
And this week is my blogiversary again -- three years now. I'll put together some sort of giveaway, so stay tuned for that.
I'm off to dig myself up an urgent dose of Tylenol. My kids aren't used to being around each other all day. It's adjustment time -- for all of us.
