Guess The Picture

Well, I got distracted yesterday and only accomplished a bit of what I had planned to. It wasn't my fault really, I got an early morning custom request from a previous customer and since it had special meaning, I started to work straight away. I don't want to give away the design yet as I haven't heard back from her, but I did spend much of the day sussing it out. Heck I'm not even going to say what you're suppose to be seeing, but if you could tell me what you think you see, that would help me know whether I got it right or not.

Before you start giving me what for, like I told you to do, I did get some things ordered yesterday, but there was much disappointment. The shop where I got such a phenomenal thread deal by buying in bulk, no longer offers that deal. I have thought about trying to buy wholesale, but I'm not sure I could get the gig without being an actual reseller. So I sucked it up, found an okay deal with free shipping and basically bought them out of black thread. Then I decided to stick with my current business cards as they are not all that expensive so I can change them before they run out if I have a good enough reason, so those are ordered.

Then I tried to get more package stickers and I was sorely disappointed again. Both shops on etsy that I have used for this service are now closed and the ones that remain don't make the ones that I had gotten used to. Theirs are all die cut and, well...girly. I like my nice square bold ones. So I didn't get those yesterday and I'm deciding if I should just get the much smaller moo stickers. If I do those I need to put together a logo or find a photo that looks good at 22mm x22mm. The stickers I have now are 2" and I can put my URL on them and my whole shop name, but I suppose if they already bought from me they don't really need my address huh? Do you people understand how much thinking I do while I write here, it's like talking to myself only with typing. Anyway, so I guess I need a small, distinct logo before I can do that. Great, more stalling.

Oh, and in other disappointing ordering news I couldn't seem to find anywhere that would offer a ring mix in larger sizes like I wanted for more of the asymmetric necklaces. Of course I am likely just jumping the gun anyway. Just because I like making them doesn't mean they will be flying off the shelves, but with no other jewelry supplies in desperate need, I just skipped that order for now. So that brings us to today's plans. I've just got a couple of things left on the remake list and neither are imperative. I've got a couple of ideas brewing for more odd products and the next fancy mask idea is also percolating. So I guess what I'm saying is I have no idea what I'll be doing or making today, fun.

By the time I finished reading your post and looked at the pink bit again...it came to me. Looks like the breast cancer awareness ribbon.

You seem to be facing a whole lot of dead ends for the time being. Try to take heart. Looking for new sources of thread or supplies could prove fruitful. You never know what new things you might find.

As for guessing the picture, do I spy a pink ribbon (as in breast cancer awareness)?

Fox said...

Of course, it it the pink ribbon...
It is very obvious - well done.

Definately a breast cancer aware ribbon.

TotusMel said...

Yay! Thanks for guessing for me...I just wanted to make sure the design was clear enough!

You may be able to order desired stickers at your local office supply store. Not sure the price will be great, but it is an option.

Definately breast cancer ribbon. No question about it. Nice job of working that in!

Jane said...

It is the breast cancer awareness ribbon, very clear. I'm a survivor, I might be interested in getting one.

Jill said...

have you thought outside the box for the rings try http://www.jbrp.com/products/248596-Ring+and+Pin+Kits/
seems like it's like mechanic hardware or something but they have lots of different rings even rubber

You've already had lots of replies but I just wanted to add my 2 cents worth. I immediately thought of the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon when I saw the picture.

I also agree with janepete about looking at hardware supplies as a possible source of rings.
