Whoa, Baby!

It's been a great week here at The Sweet Spot!  My week started off with some much needed studio purging/cleaning.  I was really into it and decided to stay off the computer and ignore my constantly chiming phone.  When I finally decided I should look into it I realized that etsy had featured my quilled mix-tape card on their Facebook page and Twitter wall.  WHAT??!! My excitement hasn't waned and I am very happy that lots of new people noticed my shop and became fans and followers.  I'm VERY grateful to etsy for the feature.  It was a great lift to my spirits as fall is quickly approaching.  Fall is pretty, but you know how I feel about things dying and days getting darker....BLAH!  Oh well, maybe I need to move to Cali?

I've been trying to create new cards and items.  It's so time consuming and lots of strips of innocent paper have indeed been harmed.  I am learning to write down measurements (gasp) and annotate them in my handy dandy notebook (Blue's Clue's, Blue's Clue's).  I hope this will help me be able to produce my cards faster and have them all look a bit more uniform.  I've tried winging it for years and it has only lead to my own frustration.

So, now onto my new cuties.  I've had this card  in my mind for years...yes, really, YEARS!  So I finally decided to sit down and get to it.  It can be made in many variations and was inspired by my own very shockingly beautiful surprise of being told I was expecting twin boys not much after I had married my hubby.  Hey, 12 years later, there's proof you too can survive multiples! ;)

On to the whoa babies:

 And here are the screen shots from my feature on Twitter and Facebook.  I hope to have a nice surprise for you on friday, but I won't make any promises.

I hope you all have an amazingly SWEET week!
