Sorry my blog followers for not posting as often these days. I've got lots of grass to cut at the cottage, soccer still going strong, my 18 yr old (going on 21) drama, and my new found craft....Book Thongs! (along with laundry, cooking, cleaning, and other crafting and swapping - you know, the usual!)
And to make matters super worse....I STILL CAN'T FIND THAT DARN CAMERA CORD!!! UGH!!!
So in the interim, I have been making my thongs almost nightly while sitting in front of the TV watching my favorite season finalies. I was hoping to get enough done for a craft show this winter if I keep up the pace. Funny things do happen at times in your life though......
I frequent a restraunt here for lunch - BISTRO TO GO - and got to know the owner well (she even scrapbooks in her spare time!). She is the greatest! So her birthday was a couple weeks ago and I thought what a nice gift to give - a book thong - as she is an avid reader. She loved it!
So, after about a week, she approached me and said she'd like some to give some "thongs" as hostess gifts for her catering side of the restraunt. Well, I could have fell off my stool right there at the counter!! She wanted 10! (Luckily, I had a bunch already made - whew!) So I brought them in and she picked what she liked. And she wanted to pay me more than what I thought I'd ever get for them. You know the deal....you don't think that your time should be part of the price cause you like doing the craft so much and don't think that anyone would pay over a certain price? Here, I was floored again! What a blessing!
So, as the story goes, I am back hard at work making more "Thongs" for my new "client" and hopefully will have some left over for the craft show....or maybe not! At this point it may not matter.
Well, I gotta get back to my DAY job. Keep stopping back and I hope to have pictures soon!
I'd like to hear from you too - I've been lonely these days - so please post a comment to brighten my day!
Ciao friends! Enjoy the sun today!
