Stitch Markers

I just love how necessity is the mother of invention sometimes. Today it proved to be true once again. I'm participating in a craft swap and while I made one item, I didn't want it to seem skimpy. One of those "I participated and all I got was one item while another person got three" things. So, I thought and thought. What else could I make that is practical and pretty? The person I'm making for is a knitter so I thought aha! Stitch markers!

And this is what I came up with:

Here is my other foray. Crocheted jewelry!

I really like it. Next I want to try a necklace. Maybe something will make it into my shop. I was all set to take photos and batteries died! Grr. So that is on the docket for this week.

Holiday Craft Show

Last weekend I had a chance to participate in a local craft show at a dance studio. This is my first real time craft show where the general public could look at my work upclose. Pretty cool!

Needless to say, I did better than I ever thought possible. I know I've been slow on the uptake to update my Etsy site (something I'm going to work on this week now that I'm on break) but I was working up a storm in prep for this show and my work paid off. I sold something like 4-5 scarflettes, a children's scarf, 2 adult scarves, and 2 ceramic pieces. Yay!

I took a photo for posterity at the beginning of the show. I should've taken an after.

Hiatus II

Until further notice (ie winter break) I can't keep up the M-F posting schedule. It sucks, and I really hate I don't have the time to keep this up as I'd like, but I know this is temporary (ie once I finish my final year of college) and then I can restart the Etsy love.

I miss you guys!

Thanks for understanding. I'll post updates as I can in the meantime.

I don't know if the fall leaves have peaked by you (they have for us finally in the Midwest) but in the spirit of so much color, I went on a hunt for leaves on Etsy. What caught my attention was a fused glass plate by JS Glass Art. Their application perfectly captures the ever changing color of leaves this time of year. Since Halloween is just around the corner, there are a couple goodies you can check out too.

Hi folks,

I apologize for not keeping this blog current for the past month. Life took over. Between school, work, car accidents, house hunting and other things, it was hard to keep this blog up with the attention it deserved.

So, this weekend I'm getting back on the train to share with you more Etsy goodness especially in time for the holidays! Look for the fun on Monday.

Want to know about BarefootWeaver? Just read her profile on her Etsy page. How fascinating. I just love her creations. She uses thread and yarn in the best way, it seems like the individual threads just shine in her scarves and wrist cuffs. For just starting out in January, she's done very well for herself. Look at what she makes and you'll see why.

I just want to reach through the computer screen and touch the chenille scarf. Look at that fuzziness. Mmm. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Friday Featured Seller - HaveFaithBelieve

Congratulations to HaveFaithBelieve, today's featured seller! HaveFaithBelieve is from Arkansas and has an eclectic variety to her shop. What got my attention were these bright felt flower clips decorated with buttons. I could totally see this paired with a scarf or scarflette to add a little extra glam.
