So, I've just become aware of new tax laws regarding sales to customers in the EU.

I have to admit, I'm still not sure how this will affect my Etsy shop--especially considering how I can't get through one page of the guidelines without my eyes crossing... I just know that I have until the 1st to find out.

So... 3 and a half days of perusing international tax law.

I have to freaking try this --> epic embroidery transfer

Thank you God for Pinterest.

While doing my usually start the day internet rounds, I was greeted by this wonderful pin whilst trolling Pinterest

Which led me to this wonderful post 

Which means that I have to figure out if they'll let me do this at OfficeMax.

Mind. Blown.

Let us not forget...

...the mega projects.

Now that the first buttafly is done, I decided to take some time and give a little TLC to a project that I can guarantee will be around for some time to come.


As you can see, I have finished the blue thingies (sort of. 

Like the rest of Doodleplex, the radial pattern is often based in repeats. In this case, while both of the repeating sections have blue thingies, only half of them have just the one blue thingy.

Here are some closer shots to give you a better idea of what I mean.

As you can see, some of the pointy bits have the aqua blue, and then a grey-er blue, on the other hand, some have frosted tips!

And there's still more to come!


I highly doubt I'll have Doodleplex, Part II, done before New Year... but who knows!
