Should have called this post Frenzied Friday - sort of felt like a ping pong ball all day. But in a very short time, I'll be in weekend mode, and that's just fine with me!
First want to share two new websites that I found today that would be useful for Etsy shopowners and fellow bloggers. One is called Shape Collage and it's a cool site where you can make photo collages in a heartbeat. I was going to show you a finished product today, but time ran out. It was recommended to me and thus I'll pass on the recommendation. You can make a collage in a shape, too.
Kontactr is a site where a highly secure contact form can be generated and embedded into your website and blog. I found it on a blog called Etsy's Got Talent - a new blog venue whose goal is to " showcase talented etsians and make the blog a destination for Etsy lovers and shoppers alike." A noble venture indeed, and well worth a a look!
|You see wood, I see bird houses!|
Yep - it was a nice start to my day...
On to the estate sale...the sale was smaller than the last I went to but definitely worth the twenty minute trip - some highlights:
|LOVE, LOVE these glasses, Johnson Bros. English ironstone, pretty vintage tole serving tray|
|old games and books|
Not much progress to speak of in getting the warehouse/studio in some semblance of order .. always so many other things that take the limelight. You know how that is - right? And, in the birdhouse department, one being painted and one ready to go. Bring on the springtime birds, building their nests and starting their families...
(The right flat edge goes flat against a tree or beam. Not my own design ... sure hope the birds like it.)
My very first woodworking project - ever! All fingers intact, too. Yahoo...life is good!
