Southern Minnesota has come and left. I came back with a very mediocre tattoo, some good times, and an extra suitcase full of goods. I picked up Allison a glass insulator, some ceramic goodies for my crafter friends, and endless vintage aprons. This week marks the "handmade" begining of my upcoming etsy sales. I have some ideas, I just need to get started on them. Flocked (yes fuzzy) refinished vintage picture frames. I'm also thinking about actually assembling small-scale shrines again. The illustration project is coming along slowly. French bulldogs are so darn cute! This will be a popular book! Tattooing has been steady, I'm happy with what I've accomplished thus far. I've become very interested in this rug, and the entire process of felting. I've only attempted to felt a couple of wool sweaters once, and was pretty disappointed by the washing machine method.
