Reviving the Sleep Angel

I really feel I've neglected my Sleep Angels when I owe so much to them. It was when I came up with the idea for them a little less than a year ago that things first clicked in my head about where I wanted to take my crafts-making.

Of course, since then, I've had so many other clicks, like this click and that click :) I think it was to Emily that I recently admitted that I needed some discipline, as my work has a tendency to go off in so many directions that even I end up getting confused. Through it all, though, my Sleep Angels have been a constant, always managing to bring fresh customers into my shop.

So last week I decided to pay them a little more attention, give them a makeover of sorts by introducing new elements like patches and crochet, and offering them in themed sets of four. The picture above shows the first set I'm making available in my shop. It's the Butterfly-and-Flowers Quartet, and can be found here.

I looove your new babies...You are right they deserve attention. And i know just how you feel about the more discipline thing! Thanks for putting your toughts about it here, it triggers my thinking about my own 'going into all these places at ones', and above all thinking of how to do something about it. Thank you again, Apol!

Attention, Etsy sellers, two things we are looking to buy: time and discipline.

Who's selling?

O yeah time and discipline, I've tried to find them, so that our supply shop would be the biggest on Etsy, unfortunatly, they are both out of stock :S
Your new angels are adorable :)

they are adorable! And it's funny, when i read your story, it is very recognizable - my mind wants to do so many things that it confuses me sometimes as well :)

long time lurker now a poster...I read your interview in the Munting Nayon (The Netherlands) and that's how I *discovered* your site. I used to live in NL (20 some years) thus my connection there.
I just want to say what an amazing journey you have... Your angels are adorable! All of your creations are simply stunning. I hope your book, Provenciana, will reach the US too for I'd really love to read it! Congrats on the Palanca award.
I have added you in my favourite reads, hope you don't mind? Cheers1
