Bit more new stuff

Sex is good, but not as good as fresh, sweet corn.
Garrison Keillor

Since last time I have been working on starting the seeds for this year, all seeds in Miracle grow soil, planted on 18th February 2012:

I was so exciting to wake up and spot these this morning 26th February 2012:

Just look at the sweet corn, so far so good!!!

Even more exciting is the bean sprout, trying these for the first time

And look at one of mine this morning:

I've been utilising Pinterest even more & it's very helpful in giving lots of ideas:

The only things out right now are still Snowdrops:

Indoors much work has been accomplished in building a stock for my new business:

This little guy conceals an egg as his body, how very cute is this?

Other Stuff

Since I last posted I've really accomplished a great deal---

I've completed 3 massive spreadsheets (relief!), I started pinning...and have to keep from researching stuff just to fill up my boards...

This is my favourite board so far, quite fun finding goodies from childhood on the Internet

And this is my favourite pin so far: 
Pinterest is great, because it's a place for holding folders of things you may want to come to again, in particularly helpful to those doing a large project---I want to design costumes again, because with this tool you can just open your latop and all the research is there at your fingertips.  Thinking if you were getting married or having a baby or any other big organisational project you can keep all the ideas in one place.  The images help jog the memory.  If you want to know more, contact me & I'll send you an invitation, meanwhile click on the links beneath the images so you can see how it works.

I've also been curating some more Etsy treasuries---

I got to terms with my new logo---what do you think? Better?
I've completed  three rabbit toys [photos to follow in future]

I made a Valentine for Tom Robbins---

And contemplating getting a copy of this tattoo... 

I think I am getting closer to starting back on the tarot after this hiatus, after making the Valentine for TR, I think I am back in the zone...finally

Focus shifts

So I haven't had the inspiration to pick up with the tarot at the moment...it's not forgotten, simply eased into a lesser pressing   priority

Instead I have shifted focus to the possibility of opening a "shop" on Etsy, so going about collecting inspiration and building up a stock.  Open it in September time and see if it will go...resurrecting my old business name, designed an early image as logo:
 I still need to refine it, don't think text is the right one & not sure about the ability to read it 

Thanks to all of you who continue to help me, I hope to get even with you soon!
