Christmas gifts

I love it when I find a great deal at a lawn sale and snatch it up. I found this fabric (a very large bolt I might add) at a lawn sale several years ago. It has been sitting in my closet ever since. I knew that it would come in handy at some point. I found a pattern that I wanted to try and thought that this fabric would work very nicely. So I made this for my mom for Christmas. I sure hope she likes it. The pattern was pretty easy and can't wait until after life settles down so I can make one for myself. I may even make a few for my ETSY shop.

Making changes

I'm not a big fan of change; never have been and probably never will be. I have felt for sometime now that I need to change what I make and sell on my ETSY shop. The things that I like to make just don't sell. How many jewelry vendors are on there anyway? I just don't make things that jump out at people I guess. I am letting everything expire and come January I hope to have a new layout. I may even open a second store so I can keep things separated. I'm not letting the cat out of the bag so to speak as to what I will be doing in each store. I hope that I can find my niche. It hasn't happened yet and I am discouraged.
