So I set up an etsy account yesterday. I hope to sell some cards, altered items, and coin type purses on there. This is my alternative to a 2nd job. So I hope it works out for me and I am motivated.

I already have some Halloween Cards that I want to post. I'm not sure if I should sell as a pack or individually.

Oh you may be wondering what ESTY is. It is a website to sell homemade items on. And since I LOVE making things - this is perfect for me. I'm hoping to set aside the money I make to save for my Camera and a lens. and for extra spending money.

my etsy site is: www.LaceyBugCreations.etsy.com

There is nothing up yet. But check back this weekend and hopefully i have some things posted!

Last night was kids night out at the dance studio. The theme: ROCK STARS & POP STARS! 11 kids showed up and than Courtney, Ashley, Ann & Myself were the adult supervisors! It was so much fun! Everyone came dressed up, we had "red" carpet pictures, they learned a dance, we played games, sang karoke, and decorated picture frames! It turned out better than I thought it would have. The pictures are adorable - especially the "red" carpet pictures (or green turf pictures).

I am not excited for the next kids night out. But definitly learned that we need to prepare more and have stuff ready to go before the day of. With classes going on it's hard to decorate and get things up. But I think and hope the kids had a blast. It was about them.

Here are a few pictures:

Albums, Submissions & Rockstars!

I finished Emily & Steve's album. It turned out pretty good! Actually I love it!! I hope they do too. I really put a lot of hard work, time, and money into it. Who would have thought making an album would cost so much. It was definitly WELL worth it though!

So if anyone out there is looking for a wedding gift. Let me know. I think this album will be a great hit! It's more about who they have become and their journey as a couple, rather than just their wedding.

I have also been working on my cruise album. It's turning out cute. I'll scan pictures in soon. And i submitted 2 cards in hope they will get published. But we'll see.

I'm still holding out hope that i can get my camera soon! My goal is to now have it by "Spooky Ballets", so I can take archive pictures of the show and maybe even sell some.

This coming weekend is "Kid's Night Out". The theme is Rockstars & Popstars! IT's going to be so much fun! There are 10 kids signed up right now. I hope everyone comes dressed up in fun "Rockstar" outfits! We are having red carpet pictures, karoke, decorating foam frames (in which the red carpet pic will go in), playing games, there will be juice and cookies, and much more i'm sure! I can't wait. It's going to be a blast! I'll be sure to post pictures. At least of Ashley, Courtney & myself!

Well I hope to have more projects to share soon!!! Keep checking back! If you want to see the album, please message me and I will send it to you privately.

A little bit of this and that

I have been cooking on Emily & Steve's album. Matt thinks I could market these albums and sell them. I think I have a really good concept going. I leave space for their journaling - I title the page with a topic and the next page i leave a space for a picture. I think the album is turning out super cute. It's over half way done. I really hope Emily & Steve enjoy it. It's a different concept on a "wedding" album - as it starts before their wedding. It's about how they developed their relationship and where it has taken them.

Here are a few more pages from the album:

Again - the papers are BasicGrey: Mellow Collection. I thought it was perfect since they are having a fall wedding. I'm really excited to give it to them. And I hope it is personal to who they are and they can cherish it for a long time.

I have also been scoping out the Canon Digital Rebel XT. I want to buy just the body and a lens seperately. So I can get a lens I want. The camera body is on sale right now at PC World (or something like that) for $457.00 (FREE shipping!) I'm so tempted to buy it. Except I only have $200.00 saved up and that is it. I really want the camera to take pictures for the Gasper's School of Dance Website of the Gasper DanceWear and also for the FM Ballet Company for the Spooky Ballets. My plan is to sell the pictures to familys whose kids are in the show, and to give a percentage of it to the Ballet company as a donation. I may call my mom and ask for a loan from them so i can get moving on buying the camera. If i sell my other camera (Sony) and the coffee table - I should be close to the price of the new camera. I just need to sell those things.

I am really happy how it turned out. I will be adding some Heidi Swapp Jewels to the swirls and also showing how to make it more simple.

Em & Steve's Album

Alright - I hope my friend Emly doesn't read my blog. Because I am going to post the cover and first page to an album I am making her for her wedding gift. She is getting married Oct. 6, 2007. Emily and I went to college together and we were great friends! I miss her and we haven't kept in good touch since we graduated.

I saw her for the first time in August since College graduation in 2004. 3 years have gone by. It is so crazy!!

So here is the cover and 1st page of the album I am giving her and her soon to be husband Steve.
