Long Overdue Update

I apologize for not keeping up with the blog. I realize that I have not posted anything since the move. Now that I'm settling into married life, I will try to be better about making regular updates.

You may be interested that I'm currently working on the details of a business plan, hoping to get an Etsy store up and operating in the near future. Matt and I have been working on some crafting ideas recently. Here is the latest (and in my opinion, most successful) project: a Nintendo themed luminary!

The colors are much better in real life. This is the preliminary model. We have some tweaking to do as far as layout goes. We're changing the production process as well. In this model, we cut out the design from black cardstock and used bits of cellophane to produce color. In the future, I think we're going to go with marker on vellum instead. It looks less messy on the inside and is much easier to work with than cellophane.

Coming soon: Cthulhu ragdoll!

  1. Just one question, did you mean EBAY store? I've never heard of ETSY... BTW, the luminary looks pretty cool. Should appeal to people under say 30 yrs. old? Nice.
