Yesterday I spent a couple hours cutting out a million little felt pieces and putting together "kits" so that I could take all of my sewing on the road with me. I packed it all up and headed over to a friend's house for dinner, a movie and lots of laughs. I haven't been out of the house much at all since I started my shop on Etsy, things just took off and I've been so swamped I'm spending every waking minute of every day working on orders. Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled with the popularity of my Lens Pets™. And frankly, I'm a bit of a hermit anyways. ;) But it was very nice to get out of the house. Dinner was YUMMY (veggie burgers on the MOST delicious buns I have EVER eaten, with grilled mushrooms and zucchini), the movie was cute (500 Days of Summer) and the company was great. BONUS: I got lots of sewing done while I visited. Including a couple new Halloween Lens Pets™ to add to my Holiday Collection...
of course there had to be a jack-o-lantern!! I love his little buck teeth on the bottom. ;)
and a black cat! I wasn't sure if I would add a black cat to the collection because the whole point of Lens Pets™ is that they're bright and eye catching... but I think the addition of the bright orange accents is just the right touch
the spider isn't new but this color combo is. so far I've done purple, green and orange. I can't decide which I like best.
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday... but Christmas Lens Pets™ are right around the corner! ;)
