Open House this weekend!

I'm busy working, hoping to finish up some works in progress. I did finally send out my email campaign newsletter yesterday. Whew! It's exciting and a little unsettling. (How will it be perceived, did I have a typo, etc. Usual nerves...) If I somehow missed you, here's a snippet and you can view the full monty here. If you're not on my mailing list but want to be, enter your email address in the box on the right.

Lasering started today! 
I engraved another Tesla plate that only worked so-so the first time around. He's on mat board. Here's a proof using the old plate. Even though I could have fixed the lack of black in the mustache and eye area, the patent drawings didn't come through very well, so I'm hoping the second time is the charm. I will coat the plate with liquid gel medium and proof at some point. (The lasering happens at MAKEatx)

I made Tesla light switch plates today too, soon to be on Etsy--hopefully with a better picture. If you have to order 10 for your house right away, let me know and I'll get on that STAT. :)

What Was I Thinking?
I starting thinking about how this is May and at the beginning of the year I wanted to finish one piece per month. I finished one piece so far in 2013. Granted, I have several in the works, but I'm wondering if I can ever catch up. Needless to say, I have great plans for May.

Those light switches are AMAZING!! I'm in an apartment with weird switches though.... they're like fat, square sliding tabs instead of normal-sized switches. So no dice for my home. But maybe I'll give some as a gift. They're really chic and creative and just a touch playful!

Hey! Good to hear! I have weird switches too. Some the big square tabs but in the old part of the house, double switches. I need to see what else I can get my hands on to laser.
