No way!

So I was feeling a bit bummed about how my buttons only seem to slowly gain a bit of interest.  I also have tried contacting a few places, but have usually not heard back from them.
While I was at a recent anime convention I found a booth in the artist alley that had stuff I liked.  The friend who was with me at the time said it is the place she gets a lot of stuff from.  I didn't want to commit to a big print, I was thinking a button would be good though.  They didn't have any!  I put it off for a bit, but then decided one night to try sending an e-mail.
Well, we have been talking and she is very interested!  I didn't want to say anything and jinx myself before this.  She is making a contract tomorrow and I just finished sending her an invoice.  I'm so excited!
Since there is still time for things to go wrong I won't mention too many details.  Though once things are going along I will put more info here.

Because of this, I get a new toy.  I've always cut out the button circles by hand.  This is soothing to me, but takes a while.  Because of the number of buttons she wants, I got myself a little punch.  It looks like a lot of fun to use.
That is the specific one I will be getting.
I can't wait to play with it!

This really needs to not become a habit!

I don't know where the time has gone!  I can't go and ignore this blog so for long.  I'm sorry!

Anyway, I'm spending the morning enjoying my new candle and painting a back-ground for my photos for the shop.  I got this paint months and months ago!  I even lost it at one point.  It looked the perfect light grey in the bottle.  After mixing it and spreading some out, I was wondering if I was seeing things.  It looked shiny to me!
I tilted it this way and that but it looked the same.  I then looked at the bottle.  Yup, right there in plain black text "silver metallic".  This is what I get for not reading things.
Though the more I look at it, the more I start to like it.  This might not have been a bad thing.

Sorry for the silence.

I've been busy with lots of things, but I hope to be able to get focused again.

This is my latest sample for my serger wallet.  I think it looks good to go.  In the picture there are 8 cards in it.  It might be able to hold one or two more, but not much beyond that.

This is going to be a short update since I still need to get my photo area ready for all the fun pictures I will be taking!
