Project 365, Day #195


I hope you had a good weekend.  Today we did some much needed yard work.  The weeds were a little to tall.  We also ripped off the shrubs that grow over our side wall.  That wall faces a city street and we get notices from the city to trim them back because they hang to low.  I don't know what kind of shrubs they are but they intertwine like vines and get very thick.  It is a lot of work just to trim them.  We do plan on getting the yard landscaped, so we just decided to rip them off.  It was a lot of work and my arms are all scraped up, but I am so glad it's done.

I also got to work in the studio a bit.  I finished some of the things I was working on for convention.  I don't know if I mentioned that yet but I am going to the Stampin' Up! convention on Wednesday.  I usually make something (sewing wise), especially since they had fabric.  Of course in the new catalog we don't have any fabric, but that's ok.  I also make swap cards and exchange them with other demonstrators.  I wasn't going to make any this year but I decided to make a few still.

After all of that, I decided to draw my butterfly tonight.  Here is butterfly #195.

I drew with a pencil tonight and just outlined with a fine tip sharpie.  I needed a change of pace from the king size sharpie.  I do like the way this one turned out and I like the lines in this one.  Here are the items I finished for convention.

I used a orange faux/vegan suede for the clutch and flip wallet.  All the trims are from Stampin' Up!.  Although I didn't take a picture of the inside, the inside fabric of the clutch is also from Stampin' Up! They are nice summer colors.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day tomorrow.

Take care,
