Shop Notes-Sew Busy!

It has been a little over a month now since my store has been up and running. If you have not yet checked it out you should by clicking here. I have been putting up lots of new stuff each week. In my first month I have had 8 sales and 3 other sales from friends in town. Not too bad! It is the marketing stuff that I am not too good at. I need to find ways to get the word out.
...but in the meantime I have been super busy creating! I am on information overload; too many ideas and no time to get them out! Ahhh! So here are some pictures of my recent creations and works in progress....

Some of you have seen my new hand embroidered pillows and wall hangings that I put up for sale in my store last week (see below) and also a couple that I need to finish that will be up in the next couple days hopefully.



...a few more linkys...

I am always looking for new projects to make with all my tiny scraps. I have been having so much fun making these earrings and hair clips. I have big plans for these; there will be a lot more of these to come!

...also a work in progress...I have been using some old children's books (they were my fathers when he was a kid) for inspiration in designing a coloring book. I am super excited about this! So far I have 15 different drawings and I plan to photocopy them and bind them into a fun little coloring book with maybe a felt cover. I haven't decided yet.


I checked out a book at the library called "Sweater Surgery," and it has a ton of different ideas of what you can do with old sweaters. I thought this patched sweater scarf was cute. Maybe if I put it on my list now I could have it done by fall. :)

...and of course lots of mothers day card making. I know LOTS of new mamas this year.

Hope you all have a great weekend and be sure to check out Etsy on sunday. I will be featured in the children's showcase. Smiles.

Do you hand make all those cards? They are pretty sweet looking.
