It really is...so hard, to say goodbye. Most of the patterns that are being discontinued are ones I love and I know others love them too. I can't believe they are discontinuing these. It really is hard to believe.
Wow, talk about close! It was running neck and neck for Marcela and Pure Joy Events. For the last half an hour, I thought --oh my, what if it's a tie? I didn't have anything written or even thought of what would have happened if it ended up to be a tie. At the end Marcela had 56 likes and Pure Joy Events had 54 likes.
I have done quite a bit of giveaways hosted by bloggers. Thanks for all of their support. Giveaways are a fun way to give back to the creative community. So I actually thought i would do my first official one when I hit 1000 likes on facebook. Well, I didn't think it would be this soon. So let's see, what should we do. I know what the prize would be - it was going to be $100 when I have 1000 likes and $200 when I hit 2000 likes - fun? This one will be for the $100, just to make it clear.
Some of you may have seen and some of you may have not, but cutetape.com was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Summer DIY 2011 Issue
So how addicted are you to masking tape? Addicted enough to even get the iPhone "maskingtape" app?
I haven't tried it out myself, not that I didn't try to purchase it. When I did attempt to purchase, apple was asking me to reconfirm some stuff and left me at the county page that never went anywhere even if I clicked submit multiple times. I'm sure I will try again.
I'm a bit late posting this. Partly because I've been distracted with orders and also...with looking for and getting new gadgets. I don't know why but I've been wanting to make stuff. "You mean you haven't been making stuff?" you ask... Nope, life gets too hectic and things just get piled up. *Sigh*
I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything. It's been hectic and I guess I had to set priorities. I would love to blog more or post more creations from people in the Gallery, but currently I just want to make sure things (orders) get out as quick as possible. When I have some down time, then I'll update the Gallery since I do have some great creations here from customers.
This blog post has been long overdue. I've been meaning to feature Sasha from The Gilded Bee for awhile now. Just caught up with ...packaging/shipping =(. She just sent me another one of her creations with a rubber stamp set she got the last time. The thing is that I didn't even recognize it as this set (Russian Doll Set). I love that she's able to make things and it becomes hers.
I've always been a firm believer in doing what you love. No matter what it is, you'll make it work and things will happen the way it should. So, I thought to myself...which I do often and wish I can think-type (I would have a lot more post if I can do that!!)..so I thought, how did I end up with this. I know I've explained the design part and packaging etc. Something else I remember that clicked. When I was young (ER)..ok, fine way back when I was young, my uncle was a designer also. He would have these paper swatch books.
So I have some random Japanese Washi Tape that sits around and I wanted a way to organize them. These are washi tape I opened and used for photos. Anyhow, I found the perfect solution for my needs. It's cheap and easy to find / buy. It fits it pretty perfectly and has 4 columns and one slot on the side that's a little wider.
