art therapy

I'm still excited about getting all of my packages ready and shipped out to the lucky winners from the weekend. Above is a sneak peak of what part of your parcel may look similar to. This specific one, went on sale this afternoon in the shop and was snatched up quickly. {and well worth it, filled to the rim with amazing vintage ribbon and gift enclosures galore goodness!}
and don't forget to you other fannntastic commenters {aka "losers"} you too get a mini mini mini package, so if you haven't already, please e-mail me your mailing address at amy@posypress.com.

I am totally loving putting these together, so very soon goody box 3 will be going up into the shop. And it seems they are getting better and better and bigger and bigger each time.

I am also loving the new desk space and bookshelf in the extra room. It's been so easy to get projects organized and finished with all my newly created space. I don't know why I didn't do it ages ago. I suppose I thought it would be expensive to get the space I really craved, but it was so super cheap. I recommend you to go for it if you haven't already. All you need is an hour or two at Ikea, {hee hee, and then another 10 hours to put it all together when you get home!}

I have a lot of works in progress, so i think I'll be playing along with everyone else in showing those. It's been fun seeing how everyone else works. I completely do everything in batches. And I seem to really enjoy the repetitive nature of much of the production that I do with my work and designs. I find it really therapeutic. I've been like this for as long as I remember. Cutting millions of bits of paper or stickers, punching holes in stacks of books, separating beads into their proper color groupings, tying off all of the strings in my side-sewn cards. all right, that's enough blabbing from me for the day...until tomorrow folks!
