I write this post with a glass of wine beside me, the gas heater as near to me as possible. The rain is pelting outside. It's so cold, I have on two pairs of socks, a pair of leggings under my denim jeans, two shirts and a jersey and a few icicles hanging from my nose...Yes...my friends, I declare-it is cold.
I have been creating a bit lately, all goodies to go into my Etsy shop. Some new experiments which I was so happy with. I have made and sold a lot of mini journals (8x8) Normally from card, stitched with machine and then embellished. I tried my hand at paper bag albums (same size) and was pleasantly surprised! While a lot more work, I must say, I enjoyed the result and think they would make an awesome album, or a memorabilia journal!
With a craving to hand stitch, I also set about making some stuffed hearts, they make cute decorations to hang in your home. I have so many of these around my home-on my bedroom cupboards, dresser, linen cupboard- Just about everywhere! I just love seeing them, they add a little bit of charm and cottage vintage flair!
I also have a new product which, depending on how they sell, I will make more of, although I think I will machine stitch next time! They are fabric bookmarks. I have a few more to finish up and add to the shop.
So paper bag albums, stuffed hearts and bookmarks are the new goodies in the shop.
I also have FREE shipping on selected items.
Don't forget I also sell Digital products, digital scrap booking sets, digital journal cards, ATC sheets, Etsy shop sets and lots more!
see you there! x
