My very FIRST Etsy Sale

was this morning :)

THANK YOU Barbara B. This was actually her second purchase from me. She bought my "My Wish For You" kit earlier even before I set up shop at Etsy.














So, I had been busy having fun making this journal that explores my introduction to Halloween and how I grew fond of it over the years... I loaded it with various textures. Textures together with the bold colors and elegant yet whimsical elements made it my favorite instantly and I left it out on the living room coffe table :)

Then I thought about my long-neglected Etsy shop and wondered if this could be a kit. It wasn't easy to find or replicate every little element I used in my own book-the hand stamping, misting, embossing, altering, sanding, layering and cutting tiny strips of foam tape to add dimension to layered elements... all that punching and die-cutting and stamping and cutting and stitching have my wrist hurting! But I'm happy with how it turned out... every thing is handmade and ready waiting for creative hands :)
