The Monkey Regrets to Inform You...



Argh! I did not get to my MIMM post yesterday, obviously. I had a good reason though, it has to do with cold hard cash...got slammed with orders over the weekend and decided that it was time to pad the gift tag inventory just a little bit. The busy season is sneaking up on us very quickly, and with that in mind I worked on less creative pursuits this past week.

But in case you are not familiar with Monkey in the Middle Mondays, let me explain just a bit...

Monkey in the Middle Mondays are my way keeping myself in check (at least most weeks- lol!)and working on something new every single week (explained in a little more detail here )...I share pics of my WIPS and I would love to see what you are working on! WIPS are one of my favorite things to follow on blogs. I'm a before and after kinda gal, even though I don't do much trash to treasure these days.

To get a good idea of a real MIMM post, go visit my friend Kathy at Catnip Studio. She's sharing her cleaned up studio this week. Definitely worth a visit- Kathy's studio is truly envy-worthy!

I do have something I can share with you this week, although the creating part of this project is done, I'm still working on it. Using the pencils and markers and paint and ink is the fun part. It's the scanning and tweaking on Photoshop and printing that's my biggest challenge. And that's where this piece is at right now. But I'll share a sneak peak....



And that's it for this abbreviated MIMM...on Tuesday...

Until next time,
