The rain and my daughter having walking pneumonia kept us from the lake this weekend, but I did get to settle in with some wonderful new books that arrived in the mail just before the start of the weekend.
First I was thrilled to receive Rachel Ashwell's new book! I have been a fan for as long as I can remember, and like the rest of the world was saddened to see her stores close. Her books have always been among my favorites and this one is no exception! It's beautiful, cover to cover. It's larger than all of her other books have been, more of a coffee table book, so the photos are nice and big! She is such an inspiration! I normally order books from Amazon, but they kept saying that this book would ship in 1-3 months, so I ordered from Barnes and Noble and had it in 3 days with free shipping!
Note:! When I just looked to her blog to create a link for you I noticed that she has indeed reopened one of her shops!! Yeah! That's such wonderful news, it's always good to know someone will make it in this economy after all!
I've almost finished up my baby related projects with just a few details to finish up and photos to take. (It would help if it would stop raining) I hope to have those ready to add to the shop and to show you very soon. For now, here's another little peek.
Bubblegum Art Bits for about 3 years now, and I thought it would be fun to offer some baby themed Art Bits! Right now, I just have the girly themed ones ready, but I will be adding boyish ones soon. I'll be updating the shop with all of the baby themed items all at once, and hopefully very soon!
I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
