Onto business...

Ok, so I got that out of the way. Now onto my good day.

Listed some pendants yesterday in my Etsy shop, with my new Greek leather cord. I've been wanting to try Greek leather for so long since I heard that the quality is consistently top notch. Key word, consistent. I got some leather in colours, to play with, and I love the way it looks with my pendants! Really complimentary. Kinda hard to see the colour in the first one, the leather cord is olive green.

I got some paler colours too, that I'm not yahoo crazy about but will try them with some other pendants and see how they look.

Finally went shopping last week for a new agenda (organizer). I've been using the one that my brother Ron got me for Christmas around 15 years ago; it was used to death, the zipper on the wallet section died around 8 years ago because I stuffed it with too much, well, stuff. I covered the outside with cow patterned shelf liner since I couldn't have just plain black. 'Course not!

I went to Bureau en gros, which is what they call Staples here in Qu├ębec, and headed straight for the sale section, where they had lots of old stock agendas. I'm always so happy when I find a good bargain. So this all-leather agenda with wallet section and lots of compartments and space for notepads, that was originally $69.99, was marked down to $49.97 and then 75% off that - I got it for $12.49! Zipped home, to transfer everything over to its new home and then added a bit of zing to plain brown leather (nice tho it was), with this sticky-backed cloth. Very happy with this. Here's the front:

And the back:

To work I go!
