and rach made these gorgeous leather journals. they come in lots of killer colors. if you look closely the strap looks like a little bow & arrow! they are the prettiest journals i've ever seen.

Also going to visit the screen printers & check on all of my new woodcut necklace charms! it is such an exciting time. i feel absolutely honored to be living this dream & to have the support of my online friends! thank you. happy monday! els

  • just wondering if your rva store will have an online storefront for those of us not lucky enough to be able to visit face to face?

  • SWEET!!!

    I got a little surprise today. I was on my lunch break, sat down with my cup of ramen noodles and a brand new magazine of Creating Keepsakes. I find it rather exciting to open up the first page. I know im a dork. But anyway….turning in to the next few pages I see something out of the corner of my eye. 3-4 pictures of the cutest couple ever. Elsie and Jeremy! Yup that was my excitment for the day. So what did you do Elsie? Did they call you to put those pictures in, or did they do that on there own? I didn’t really see your name on the page at all.

    Anyway … Getting excited for opening day!!!! Love the eye masks, and the journals!
