Hello All! It’s been a crazy busy week, so we’ll call this more of a “check in” than a blog post.
I know I posted the WIP last week, and I’m happy to say that the candy coloring bookmark is FINALLY finished. I was up until about midnight trying to get it done last Wednesday–so basically, I showed you guys the lineart and then sat there for 3 more hours making it all fancified. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Some of you may have seen this photo up on instagram–I’ve finally started coloring some of my own designs–is it weird that I haven’t until now? I really like making lineart more than coloring…I can’t help it! (If you’re not following me, I’m scribblerex on Instagram!)
Saturday night, Katie, Sean, Stephanie, Simone, and I went down to Duluth Square for their free “Summer Concert Series” to watch an 80’s cover band called The Breakfast Club play. The band was good, the music selection was fantastic, and altogether it was just a really fun concert. Duluth Square is really set up to optimize a gigantic amount of space. Even if you’re far away you can see and hear really well–and I’m only saying this because we got there a bit late, it was insanely crowded, and we still got a great spot.
Duluth actually has 2 more free concerts lined up: Drivin N Cryin on August 13 and On the Border on September 10th. If you’re interested head over to the City of Duluth page and don’t forget that you also live SOMEWHERE! Most cities host something free over the summer, so google your hometown! There might be something free and exciting going on nearby.
And there are about 12 Pokestops surrounding the stage…I really did try to catch ’em all Saturday. Received my first PokemonGo injury Saturday as well. Walked into stairs, stubbed my toe, it was gross–I was in flip flops, the steps were brick, I wont go into details. Watch where you’re going everyone! Don’t be like me!
Lastly, here’s an update on the embroidered necklace front:
I bought bigger jump rings for it (They’re actually chain mail rings which are a million times easier to use than jump rings. An actually million, not just an imaginary million.) so it lays much nicer than it did before. I’ve also switched out the chain for ribbon for 2 reasons: 1. The chain didn’t actually fit the style of the necklace, and we think the ribbon looks prettier, and 2. The ribbon is super easy to adjust. The necklace is intended to be worn higher up on the neck, and everybody has different sized necks so it just seemed logical to make it so that it could fit as many people as possible. Plus you can tie it into a cute little bow in the back!
Alright, well that’s all the updates for today. I’ll be back on Wednesday with more bookmarks (most likely).
P.S. Going to be starting on some Harry Potter robes soon! Guess what comes out at the end of the month!
