can’t wait any longer to show you a preview!

a few fun things for you!  i contributed some thrifting tips to portland blog the handmade experiment – read it and imagine how overflowing with stuff my studio is!  darn you portland and your awesome thrift stores!  i listed all the items i shop for to use as crafting materials, what to pay attention to, and projects you can use them for.  enjoy!

so hey, remember how i told you i was working on an awesome new leethal website like almost 2 months ago?  well i did take a bit of a break, but i’ve thrown myself back into it during the last many days, and i’m really hoping to have to up by this weekend, or early next week at the latest.  i’m getting so close now that i want to show you some teaser screen shots!

there’s going to be so much new stuff, i’m showing you some smaller things now, so when it all goes up i can focus on the bigger, super exciting things! yeah! these two shots (above and below) are of the yarn section, where all my yarns will be divided into types, with links to what they’ve become for the ones that have become something.

this means if anyone out there has made something out of a leethal yarn, pleaseplease add a photo of your creation to the leethal flickr group!  (or you could email me a photo if you prefer.)  then i can link to your project from the yarn page and it will be rad!

above you can see that i’ve vastly upgraded my picture viewing system in my shop!  instead of clicking on a thumbnail image to see the full size as a jpg in the browser window, soon you’ll see the full sized pictures in a much more attractive setting, thanks to lytebox!!  hooray!

and in the shot directly above and at the top of the post, you can see a peek at my new patterns section!  soon, each pattern will have its own page, where you can see photos, info, and buy directly with a shopping cart and everything! (thanks ravelry for that one!)

and lastly, one exciting brand new page – links to all of my tutorials in one place!  on this page you’ll be able to browse through every how-to i’ve done on my own blog, craftstylish, threadbanger, and more!

excited?  i am!

ease your feet in the sea

i’m still spinning, by the way, but i’m planning to wait till the end of the week and do a week 2 tour de fleece post so i can group them together and talk about process again.  you can find last week’s yarns in the shop now!  i’ve come up with a new method of naming my handspun which i’m super happy with, let me know what you think!  i think that’s all for now; back to coding!
