postcards from the edge

September 22, 2009

oh, wouldn’t it be lovely to get correspondence from the guitarist/keyboardist of U2?   But for me, when you have a craft list that includes making handmade items for 2 new babies, a 2 year old’s birthday (not my kid, but that’s coming up too,) 3 more PIFs to complete, and upcoming halloween and the rest of the holidays, what do you do?   Why, you join a swap of course!   This was a cute one, I just couldn’t resist.   I thought if I didn’t get in on it, I might never get around to making a fabric postcard.  So here’s my contribution:

the red mountain, a postcard from the edge of craftsanity.  Or is that craft-insanity?  Who knows.

My wonderful partner  Ashley @ Peacocks & Dragonflies totally rocked with my postcard:

Scribble Heart Fabric Postcard

In addition to blogging and having an etsy shop, Ashley also has gone hardcore with the craft a day challenge for September. Check her out!

The insanity continues with the latest accessory. While I too jumped on the feather earring bandwagon and made myself a pair, I am all about making myself felt earrings now:

Whenever someone asks me where I got them, I proudly proclaim:

“I bought them from etsy!”

Which is usually responded to with:

“Coooooooooool!  Where’s Ed’s Sea?”

    Ed’s Sea – LOL!! I still can’t believe how many people are clueless to ETSY! I wanted to join the fabric postcard swap too – but with my first kiddo starting school – I really had no time to spare. Those felt earrings are cute!!

    Rahh! That postcard is magnificent. You are the queen of layered landscapes. Keep on procrastinating if it means you produce cute stuff like that.

  4. The postcards are amazing! What a fun swap! And I am loving the felt earrings… I would have never thought to make earrings out of felt, but it’s perfect!

    I WAS TOTALLY ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO KNEW NOTHING ABOUT ETSY! that’s so funny, I remember when I first heard about it, I thought the name was kinda weird and people would never get it. Little did I know.
