Haunted

I made this checkbook cover with the left over strips/scraps from the bag that I made. Originally I wanted to embroider some sort of chicken or bird on it, but I found out I have yet to master the art of embroidery, and that with hand crafts, there is no such thing as command Z. (ughh!) The seam ripper is not that much fun. I thought-what character can I do instead that was a easy and simple shape? A ghost!

So my ghost obsession continued, and more ghost drawings were done in my sketchbook (yes, I've jumped on the molskines bandwagon, the paper is delicious!):

What to do with these ghosts? Maybe design some cute stationary? Or a little story? We'll see.

Hee-hee, your checkbook ghost is awesome.
When I make a real life mistake I find my ring figure and thumb reaching for the command Z sometimes too. Sadly it does nothing for spilt coffee.

My favorite ghost is the one frying the egg. Yummy

Thats a gorgeous page from your sketchbook. (As much as I'd like, I couldn't use a Moleskin: I'd be too precious with such glorious paper!)
