I was a bookcloth making MACHINE today.  😀  I made like… 10 different pieces of bookcloth.  I also printed a bunch of lined paper.  Because I basically got a request for a custom order for 11 journals.  Which is AWESOME.  ^_^

And the person who is buying them (my therapist, ironically ;D) said that she often gets people asking where she gets her journals and she’d be happy to send them my way when they ask and then asked if I had business cards for my store that she could give out and I realized… I don’t.  O_o;;;  So last night (with design help from the ever amazing Ve @thecoffeetragedy) I made up business cards and ordered them! 

So, basically I’m feeling all official and entrepreneurial and it’s all very exciting.  ^________^

Hope you’ve all been well, too!

…just realized it might be helpful if I actually attached the pictures of the cards, wouldn’t it?  ;D

I just finished up two new travel-size unlined journals!  They’re sitting in my bookpress and I can’t wait until they’re set, so I can take pictures and show them off.  ^_^  Because I made them smaller, I was able to use one pad to make two of them and they came out this perfectly adorable, easy-to-carry travel size.  ^_^  One of them is the little sibling to this one, and the other uses this really pretty women-in-kimono print fabric that I’ve been wanting to use for a while.  So excited!  😀  I’ll make posts later this afternoon.  ^_^

replied to your post “OMG, YOU GUYS.  I SOLD MY FIRST…”

d’you mind if I ask for a photo? >< cause it sounds cool! 😀

Not at all!  ^_^  I’m always happy to share pictures of these things!  ^_^

Here’s the journal, before it was all packaged and ready to be shipped.  And I’d love to include the picture of it packaged, but apparently my Dropbox is being a butthead and I can’t get the picture to upload so I can attach it.  😛  If you want to see it, let me know and I’ll try again later.  ^_^

ETA: Ah!  Just got it working.  ^_^

MY VERY FIRST ETSY SALE TO SOMEONE I DON’T KNOW!  XD  STILL REALLY EXCITED.  XD
