Welcome!

This blog is now exclusively devoted to crafting in general, and the shop in particular! Pretty much all of my personal content has been moved to a new blog, one that is intended primarily to help keep our family and friends in the loop. (If you are interested in following the new blog, you will find it here.) This blog will continue to feature shop news, new listings, sales, giveaways, and all of my share-worthy crafting exploits.

New Logo

The lovely and talented Jessica graciously agreed to work with me to create a custom logo for my Etsy shop,  tags, business cards, etc.  She was infinitely patient with me through the design process, especially since I wasn't really sure what I wanted.   I only had a vague idea that it should include some sort of Celtic knot, which turned out to be appropriate since I settled on the name All Wound Up and Celtic knots are all wound up.  I also knew that I wanted something that would be uniquely mine, but that is frustratingly vague.  We kicked around several designs, and in the end, she presented me with this bit of genius:


Is it not just perfect?  It is, I promise you.   I'm in love with it.  Does the pendant in the middle look familiar?  It should.  She pulled it from this:


Such a clever idea, and it turned out so cool.  Thank you, Jessica.  ^_^

 I've already started playing with the design for my Etsy header, and business cards and such.  Here's a mock-up of what I have so far, for the header:


I will definitely be adding color, I just haven't decided how yet.  That was basically just the product of a brainstorming session for Jessica, and I just went back and added the finished logo.
