Time to get back to work

Well, I think I've had enough of a break and now it's time I was getting some work done.  We had a great two weeks though.  Our first week was spent away from the house visiting family and camping in a fabulous cabin and the second week was spent entertaining family during some beautiful weather.  I have no complaints.  Especially, since I return with two new amazing books, a couple of custom orders and a project I'm working on that involves other members of Etsy.  I just wish there were more hours in the day.

The project I'm working on involves a team, in Etsy, that shares an interest in celtic knots and art.  One of the team members suggested we each do a piece with the same design in our own mediums.  The knot itself isn't very elaborate so I had a bit of a time trying to decide what I was going to do.  I came up with a turtle design and am currently burning it onto a piece of bamboo.  It's a work in progress right now but I think it's going to look really good when it's finished.

The knot in the centre is the one we're all doing.  It was simper than that, I added the inner line.  I plan to do more knotwork on either side, in the lighter areas, too.
Meanwhile, I have listed another set of celtic cards in my Etsy shop.  These cards have an elk design on them.  I love the antlers!!

And poor B's box has been pushed on the back burner for a bit.  His birthday has passed and I'm afraid to say I'm not very close to finishing it.  He seems to be ok with waiting.  I think he'll be very happy with the result so it will be worth it.  When I get to the burning stage I'll share a picture so you can see what I'm doing.  I'm excited about it since he's into all the super heroes that we knew when we were kids.  It's a fun blast from the past.
