It is not too late – SPECIAL OFFERS

If you live in the US or Canada…and not sure where else, it is not too late to order a handmade gift for your mother, as May 10th is Mother’s Day.

My Etsy shop offers small tokens or love that say mom, or don’t. I especially like the little “Just a Thought” pillows that are a message she can see all the time and add a sweet little reminder and touch anywhere she might want to place them.

Quick Follow-Up to Craft Day

IMG_0684-0It was so much fun, as always, spending time with my muse friend and painting fabrics!

Here is just a sneak peek at phase one of some of the items. Next step will be lettering…or not…and then sewing up some cute market bags! More to come, in case you are watching.

It is CRAFT DAY…Yay!

It is Tuesday and it is Craft Day! I try to craft every day, but getting together with someone who shares my passion and inspires me is so much fun!

Today I will be painting, in preparation for making bags. That seems to be my two favorite things lately…painting and making bags!

Above are two pics…one of more recent art…this technique might work on bags; one of a recent bag…no art on it, but made from recycled fabrics.

Hope you are doing something you love today too!

Off to a 2015 Start

words

Happy New Year…even a bit late!

Off to a new start for 2015 and back at the work table. Today I am making pillow tops and bags. These will be in my Etsy shop when they are finished…along with more that don’t show up here.

My goals for the year? Other than being the person I am meant to be? Well, I hope to understand more about the ins/outs of selling my wares on Etsy (or other means). Why? Because I truly love creating things, as noted by my header here! What will I do with all of them? Maybe support my habit!!!

If you have any words of wisdom or a blog to share on this subject, please let me know in the comments below! I will also unabashedly ask for some love here and on Etsy…and will also return the favor!

Here’s to the new year and success in all the forms it can take!
