Not a great picture, but I've been sort of trying to figure out what to do with this bit of embroidery I did on my handmade paper. I settled on the idea of framing it. Of course, I don't have a frame for it, but I did have this matte not being used. I mounted the piece on brown card stock, then the matte to the card stock. I like it, BUT...there's a slight imperfection on the paper that I can't stop staring at! I thought maybe it was a bit of adhesive, but it won't go away (and I use water based products, but i can't get that spot off...could it be that i never noticed it there until I 'framed' it??)
Anyway, there it is...still just sitting around my studio like a lot of stuff.
I also, FINALLY, re-listed a bunch of etsy stuff.
Here's how my site looks now:http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyDearest.
So far, I've just re-listed my cards. I'm planning on going through my paper bowls and other vessels...take some better pictures, photograph some of it packaged up, that sort of thing. That'll be a bigger project, though, so who knows when that will happen!?
I've been wanting to get my film camera back out again, as I've said before. I did find out that my sister has an enlarger that is probably still in our parents' basement, but since she is in Bermuda for a Wampanoag tribal event (http://bernews.com/2011/01/champion-of-st-davids-ties-dies/) ...they are going this year to honor her fiance's recently deceased mother... I will wait for a bit to ask her about it.
As far behind as I have been in getting my etsy shop back up and running, I'm thrilled with the tiny bit I did today...get that ball rolling, right?
