I had registered a few of my items with ItsHandMade. Recently I got an order to make a set of coffee mug coasters. I was actually thrilled. Reason - It was going to be my first proper sale. I got the requirements and started on the projects. 

It was actually easy and thrilling. The lady to receive the coasters wanted it in green and yellow. I had both the shades. So I made eight of these coasters. It took me just an evening. Remember the floral coasters I made some time back. 

I stacked them neatly.

Put them in a gift pouch I had.

Put it in a cardboard box with a note for the lady.

 And wrapped it with transparent paper and yarns matching the coasters.

It reached out to her safe and in good shape. And I was really happy when she messaged me saying she received it and liked the coasters. Well, that's it for now! :-)

I think I have to tell you where I have been. Well, I have been here only - but way too busy. My office work was really eating up a lot of my time, leaving me all exhausted for the evenings when I could do something creative. I don't say that the pressure is over, but yes, reduced a bit. And that again doesn't mean that I can happily go back to my crocheting-crafting ways like earlier :-(

Now I do really have a reason to get going crafty and crochety like crazy. Yes, there is a happy little news! And yes, it again does leave me exhausted by the evenings. I do have a lot of project ideas but unfortunately haven't made much progress. There are a few more months till when I will have time for all these and hopefully can do something pretty within this time.
