What I did this weekend...

Aside from the cookie swap, this is what I spent my weekend doing...

Pouches for my shop :)



My friends, family and coworkers have been after me for the past 2 years to get the handmade side of my Etsy shop up and running, because they'd like to purchase smaller items like these for gifts and whatnot. It's something I really wanted as well (which is why I swore off swaps earlier this year), but with buying a new house, family craziness, and working full-time, finding the time has been virtually impossible!

It's taken me until now to actually sit down and crank out a batch of items, and my goal is to add a variety of pouches, bags, home goods, and new quilt patterns and over the next few weeks. I'm hoping that now that I have this first wave of items under my belt, things will be a little easier to maintain and I can just replace each item as it sells one at a time (instead of my usual marathon sewing sessions). Wish me luck!...and I readily welcome any and all advice from those of you who have experience selling your handmade goods on Etsy!

  2. Good job! I especially love the bottom middle print - what is that? I've found that getting the word out locally really really helps for sales. But for me it has been a little awkward to sell to friends, even though they are really supportive I always just want to give them stuff :).
