day 137. 3 pop tab candle holders

Made it to day 150. But not sure how much further this project is going to get. My life besides this project is really busy. I am working a full time job and am studying at night to get my Bachelor of health degree. I hope to finish this study in januari 2013. My study has my priority over this project. The last few weeks I started skipping some days and doing 2 items the next day. I am just to busy or tired on those days to focus on this project. I will try to keep this project going, but I am not sure if I am going to make it to the end.

day 132. Blue pop tab butterfly fridge magnet

Today I photographed and listed the 5 other keychain angels. I finally have the feeling I am getting some where. Only 5 items left at the moment that I want to photograph and list. When I started my shop had only 6 listings. I now have 57 items. One of my goals was helping my etsy shop grow, and that is happening. Due to all my experiments that succeded and failled I came up with a few items that really have that something extra. Still few things to do to fill my shop up more and I can start experimenting again.

 Today the blue version of the butterfly, only 2 other colors of this one to go
