New Item

December 8, 2009

I started making something new that I am now selling in my Etsy shop. iPhone cases! Well, actually, this case will fit quite a few different devices. Check out my listings, if you are curious. I’ve had my own for a while, and decided to solidify a specific style to make and sell. The design I came up with has 2 pockets and is enclosed with a flap and vintage button. (By the way, I finally looked up how to sew a button hole. Turns out, the machine I use makes button hole sewing easier than I was instructed. All you do is choose the button hole setting, attach the correct foot, adjust for button size, and GO! It sews the whole button hole with a touch of a button! SO EXCITING!) The inner lining is a charcoal color felt. The pockets are deep enough for your ID, cards, and some cash. The second pocket can also be used for ear buds. Here’s the one I’ve been using!

I forgot to mention last night, that I will be having FREE shipping on all the items in my Etsy shop over the weekend. If you need a sling or any custom order, let me know!

Shopping

November 27, 2009

Tomorrow is Black Friday. To some, this means getting up before the sun, shoving your way through crowds of crazed shoppers, standing in long lines, and most importantly getting a SALE! This whole idea sounds pretty unappealing to me, but some people love it–my husband being one of them. I don’t get it. Anyway, I’ve got the remedy for anyone who wants the sale, but not the crazy shopping trip. Shop online! Etsy is full of sales from Black Friday until Cyber Monday. My team on Etsy, The Busy Moms Team, is offering quite a bit of special offers this weekend. Check out the entire team’s listings here, and check out these lovely pieces I found.

Buy Handmade

November 13, 2009

I’m not sure if any of you are aware, but it’s already November! It seems like just last week all the leaves were green, we were thinking about mowing our yard, and plans for our weekends were to go swimming. Well now, the leaves are suddenly gone, the air is chilly, and Christmas is just around the corner.

With the holidays coming, this means most of us are doing more shopping. We, of course, haven’t started, but we are at least talking about it. So, while perusing the wonderful world of Etsy, I found quite a few things that would be great gifts. I put together a treasury of the highlights from my search to give you an idea of what really neat things you can find. My search was for Eco-Friendly items. Maybe this will get more people to consider buying green as well as handmade for the holidays.

And here we go!

Look

November 1, 2009

Today was pretty productive. John was a lovely man and took the boys out so I could get some work done. He also took a ton of really great pictures of me and a friend modeling my slings. If you get a chance, check out my newly renovated Etsy shop. I got all of my slings up and have added a few miscellaneous items.

Tales of how Halloween went for Jackson, I mean The Green Lantern, are to come.
