Oh boy, I have been busy this week.
But none of it is overly new or exciting. So, bummer.
I have signed up for a craft show next weekend, my first craft show, so I have been whipping up inventory, and launching my own small business. Yes. Crazy. I know. #idontknowwhatimdoing
This has been a really exciting creative endeavor for me. It's outside of my comfort zone, but in a good, stretching way. Since this space isn't really about my (new) business I will be limiting talk of it here, beside a launch post I have planned later this week. I'm not blogging here to try and sell anybody anything, I just want to share what I make with the world! If you are curious about this business, feel free to go and check it out at www.simplesatchels.com.

So... I don't have a lot to show today that I haven't already reported on in my Friday post. eh.
But... I do have this fun look at what my hand painted fabric looked like in process!

As you can see the colors changed quite a bit from wet to dry. Overall the colors were very different than what I was shooting for, even when wet, so my heart wasn't broken when they changed so much through out the process. I still really enjoyed the outcome! I hope to get in some more fabric painting this week.
I've really tried to up my photography skills this week as well. (Goes hand in hand with online craft business). I have been taking more pictures in favorable lighting, and adding props. My creating space looks no where as nice as the photo's I've been taking! I know my photo's could be better, but I'm pretty happy with the improvement so far.
I really want to break into my screen printing kit that I bought back in January, but I'm a bit scared. Mainly of the mess it could make! I've been watching tutorials, and reading up on the process, I just need to jump into it! No fear!
