I've been in a sort of weird mood lately. It's like I can't sit still for very long, and I'm actually purging a LOT of stuff! Clothes that I don't wear anymore, books that I've already read (but don't want to read again), and other piddly stuff that I don't have a use for. Too hot for garage sales, and I'm quite sure that other people could use the clothes and household stuff I'm getting rid of, and the books are going to go to the library.....if they'll take them. I guess the mood is coming from the tons of ideas that are rolling around in my way too full mental file cabinet wanting to become something pretty for someone to wear or use. (Picture a file cabinet filled to the brim and papers peaking out of the tops of the drawers type full!) I've got to have the space to work, and some things are just taking up space and not being used anymore. I can't even figure out how to re purpose most it into something else! So whatever is taking up the space that I don't need.....it's going to go.
I've been thinking about putting the one-of-a-kind pretties I make on Etsy and trying to sell at local stores...maybe on consignment since the economy is in a pit. If it doesn't sell, I bring it back home and try it on Etsy. But either way, I'm going to have more than one place to sell my pretties. Ebay is another possibility, too. I'll get it figured out. Got to figure out all of the how-to's for Etsy, and get a business license for tax purposes. But, I'll have all of my duckies in a row before I start doing any selling. Better to be prepared than to get into some major trouble with the IRS!
Today I'm sharing some masks I created from some pictures I took in May of last year when I was at a friend's house for the weekend. That was about two weeks before my mother-in-law passed away. Here is a sample of one of the masks:
Have a GREAT week! Try to stay cool, too!
