So Many Projects

 This month has been a whirlwind of activity at Sunflower House Art. I've been volunteering at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare festival (best volunteer gig EVER!), planning a pirate themed costume party (which is this weekend - squee!) had a couple of other birthdays and sadly two funerals. Toss in the vest I HAD to make for my pirate costume, an artist's retreat and gearing up for the craft fair in October and I have barely looked at my blog!

I have, however, been taking lots of pictures of all of the cool things I have been making for the party - treasure chest, printed canvas pirate banner, pirate themed candle holders... so that I can share them with you. Once I get through this weekend I'll be posting some tutorials on the cool things I've created.

I'm super excited about these projects and think you will be too. I'll also be showing you how the playhouse looks so far. It's still not painted but it is looking pretty darn good! Hopefully paint will happen soon.

I'll be posting about a new swap that I'm participating in later on today. It's a new style for me so I am nervous and excited all at once!

Before I run off to sew buttons on my guy's costume... here is a peek at the vest I made. I almost didn't post it because I had to line it and I HATE lining things and there are a few visible glitches but its a costume and I'm OK with it :0) I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out.

Stay tuned for fun things to come - soon - OK, probably closer to in September :0)
