While my shop has slowed down after the Holidays, not is a great time to work on making some positive changes to improve my shop.  So today I am testing out a new packaging idea for my smaller items.

What do you guys think?

Pretty Little Thursday

I have had a thing for rings lately :)  These are two I found at the gift shop at work this week.

They have an elastic band and are a little big so I have to be careful or I will lose them :(

Project Tuesday

Since my Lucy had to have her fluffy white hair shaved off and it is super cold out...I figured she needed a chic sweater to help keep her warm.  I found a simple knit pattern from Red Lipstick and gave it a try.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first try at a dog sweater.  Now to get started on one for Harvey !

Home Redecorating - Phase 2

I did this a couple weeks ago but wanted to share.  I couldn't just stop at new pillows!

I rearranged the furniture in the living room {I can't find a picture of how it looked before} and got rid of the ugly recliner.   Then I went to Target {love that store} and got the new furniture I have had my eye on:  a coffee table, end table, and tv stand.  And then I finished it up with a cream colored shag area rug.

Here is my new TV stand.  {In case you are wondering, that is deodorant smeared on my tv's speakers.  My kids did that years ago and I can't seem to get it out.} 

I love this picture I found at my local Kmart. I think it ties in the colors of my living room nicely.

Newest Family Member

This is Miss Lucy!!!  She is a 12 week old Morkie and we just can't get enough of her :)  We got her yesterday and she is so much fun...Harvey might think otherwise though.

When Creativity Strikes

I admit...there are times when I don't feel like sewing.  When it is the last thing I want to do.  But then there are days like today when I get an idea in my head and my fingers are just itching to get to work.

Introducing my new Poppy Wristlet!!  I have fabric cut out for 4 more but didn't have enough time to get them sewn.  Don't worry...I will be sure to share them soon.

What's New

I have been working on adding new items to my shop!  Today I added a bunch of fabric button rings.

I sold these at the craft shows I did and just now finally got to adding them to my shop :(  I still have a lot more stuff to get added.  If only there was 5 of me....

Craft Launch

I rarely read the Etsy Success emails I get daily but I am so glad I did today. 

I learned of an awesome new site called Craft Launch where you can create your own website that automatically links back to your etsy shop.  It was super easy and fast!!

So now my website address will go to my new site :)

Changing It Up!

I love changing things up!  So I decided to change up my business's "accessories".  Check out the new shop graphics I found from my fav designer Erin Bradley.  I love the new change.  Especially cause the color scheme is the same :)

I was so excited that I just had to hurry and make the changes.  I got almost all the changes made but it is late and has been a REALLY long the rest will have to wait.
