ad spindles/Cherry Mandala

I've had a lot of questions as to whether the cherry mandala spindle in my banner and Rav ads is still available and when I will list it. Usually, I create (or recycle) ads from spindles I've already made/sold or list them when the ad comes out. And then hear from those disappointed that they're not in my shop.

After much thought, and polling of friends and family, I've settled on this: if I use a new spindle design in ads and banners, I will list that spindle in the shop on the last day of the month the ad runs, at a specified time. I'll put an announcement both here and in an update in my shop.

So this month, the cherry mandala will be listed on Tues, June 30 at 3:00 PM EDT.

I has gallery!

I've been meaning to set up a gallery of spindles that have gone out into the world for some time. I actually have a spindles set on the Flickr account I set up to use with Ravelry. Unfortunately, it's the account I use with Ravelry (and my knit/spin blog and this one)--it's cluttered. Since I have over 200 pics (how did I get over 200 pics?), every new pic I add drops one from view.

OK, so it's a work in progress. It's going to take awhile to fish spindle pics from my network storage drive. I always meant to organize pics in folders by month and year and then specifics within those but didn't start out that way so there's a lot to sort through.

Two Years

It's been two years this month that I opened the Etsy shop. Crazy.

I had half formed a plan to celebrate the anniversary. You know how even the best laid plans go...
This is the kids' last week of school, Emily's graduation from high school is on June 7th, we have my husband's daughter and family coming in from NYC on Friday, my computer took a nose dive, yadayadayada.

I'll see what I can come up with once the dust settles. In the meantime, here's a peek at what I've been working on.
