Blingtastic Hook Pens and more Vacay pics
While walking around Stratford with Jane she learned quickly that I was drawn to crooked buildings. So she took me to Mason's Court....probably the most crooked building in which people still live, that I have ever seen. It's great isn't it?
Well, it just so happened that while we were admiring this building, a friend of Jane's came out of Mason's Court. We chatted it up and that led to an invitation to see the inner court garden. Even Jane had never seen it before. It pays to have friends in high places!
This is me trying to find the Ministry of Magic. *Wink*
I have been working on these new totally blinged out hook pens. They are super fun. They will be in my Etsy shop as soon as I re-open it. It is taking me longer than I anticipated to re-open the shop because as many of you may know, on Jan 28th USPS shipping prices doubled, and almost tripled in some instances. What used to cost $5.50 to ship one of my books overseas now cost nearly $13. I'm afraid I might be run out of business. Anyhow, it's going to take some work before I can re-open my shops. Shuttlebirds is just around the corner so I am going to be really busy the next few weeks, dyeing threads, making shuttles, tatting and so forth. I am really looking forward to this year!
