Well, things are just starting to slow down to a more doable pace. I haven't hardly seen the light of day in 3 weeks, but the shop is running smoothly and I have a few days to try and catch up everywhere else. If you haven't stopped by, be sure to visit DeviantScrap.com and check things out. There are contests and freebies and a great gallery of inspiration from scrapbooking to skinnies to postcards. You will probably recognize some work over there as a few people you know are either on my Creative Team or Hollie's - they are all so talented and I'll share more about them after they've had a chance to figure it all out. New designers and new products will be added in the next couple of weeks so be sure to keep visiting regularly!
I got to actually make two pieces of art today, no digi stuff for the first time in days and days and days. The first is a skinny for a swap. My friend, Marion of bockel24 is hosting a cool Beatles ATC swap and since I didn't have a chance to play in her annual swap this time, I decided to make the skinny I owed her a little Beatle-y.
She's Got a Ticket to Ride

This is a 4 x 8 skinny collage using pieces from my own digital collage element packs at DeviantScrap.com. All pieces were hand cut and most were retouched with ink and pastel.
The next piece was just something I had floating around in my head for a few days. It was my first piece "back to work" in a while so it's a little rough and awkward, but I liked the idea and it was fun to play.

I have a couple of more swaps to take care of and some house chores but then I can finally take some time to relax and make some long overdue blog visits and flickr looking. I miss everyone so much! I have more new digi packs to make next week and then I think I will have found my footing for the new shop, Etsy, making art, and blogging. I hope!
