Just as I was beginning to loose hope of ever selling an item, I got an email yesterday from another etsy member saying that she ordered a Scrap Journal from the store and just wanted to make sure that I send it to the right address.

I blinked several times, rubbed my eyes, and then starred blankly at the computer screen. Could this be true? Now the order only totaled $3.25 but I don’t think it was the fact that I was going to be $3.25 richer, it was the fact that someone had noticed and felt confident enough in my work to spend their $3.25 at my store. What a day!

I then rushed out to the post office that just opened near the house, the one right across the street from the classy strip club and was greeted by the nicest post office worker I’ve ever encountered. She even offered me pen when I was on the other side of the office filling out the mailer. How attentive.

Yesterday might have been ripped out of the pages of the twilight zone but, I sure enjoyed it. Even if it wasn’t real. (Yes, I had many, many dreams about having already sold an item, I know. It’s sad.) So I can now include myself in the masses that have already sold an item on etsy. yay!

So long scrap journal! We’ll miss you, but we’d much rather have you with a new owner. =]

I was having a mental block yesterday, looking at all the materials that I had to make some pretty awesome looking journals, but no ideas were coming to mind.  So I set them aside, opened up the trusty laptop and started playing with shapes on Word.  Then, I couldn’t stop!  Here’s what I came up with.

These weren’t really meant to be vintage looking designs, but I’m happy anyway!  The colors came out a little lighter than I expected, but I think it looks good anyway.

I got a pretty postive response from my ice cream journal I posted earlier.  Unfortunately, I got a lot of the inspiration for that design from Paper Cuts Studio at Etsy [as in I decided to put a little smiley face on it] but this here is an original design of mine.  I drew it when I first got my Mac.  *Memories…*

Anyway, let me know what you think.  I’m thinking of posting them up in my etsy shop.
