Every year I keep in my heart the notion that summer will be lazy, easy, languid. And every year, it’s a ridiculously busy season. This year is no exception. I think that once this month is over — marking the halfway point of the market season — I’ll have a little more breathing room. On the bright side, my week off is less than two weeks away, and I’ll have a Saturday off from the market to kick off that week.
I will, however, be attending the mechanical keyboard meet-up on that free Saturday. Apparently someone who has come up with a kit for making a keycap mold will be there. That is something I’d like to see — and maybe purchase. And some cherry-profile caps are on there way to me. Some more keycaps will be in the works soon.
In the meantime, I embellished/enhanced/”made” a few more keycaps this past week. For precision, the toothpick is my friend.
I also had fun with more bead embroidery this week.
Today I popped into the Value Village in Redmond and hit pay dirt! I’ve been searching for a copy of that since last year. The two journals I made with the first one were attention grabbers.
After that score, I wandered into Ben Franklin looking for some fun scrapbook paper to use on the inside of the “Crazy Cat Lady” journals, the “Puppy-opoly” game I found last week and the Seattle Monopoly game I’ve had at the ready for awhile. I think these end papers will really make a big difference.
Lastly, I am pleased to say that my artomat submission was mailed last Wednesday. I hope to hear from them this week.
This day full of chores has left me with little time for making anything. I’m hoping to get something accomplished yet this week. So … until next week when I’ll be at the Redmond Saturday Market and the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market.
