Cupcakes & Owls & Etsy Oh My!

I re-did my etsy banner and am commited to loading lots of new items in my shop this weekend. I had so many great things for xmas but didn't have time to put them up. My stationery business on ebay has been taking off lately and I was swamped. Super happy about that but sad my fun felt creations didn't get seen.

So I'm super commited to getting something up for Valentine's Day. So here's what I've got going on.

These cute cupcakes are tree ornaments that never got put in the store. They could also be used as a gift tags or scrapbook embellishments. I've re-worked this design for valentine's day and also made it smaller for a cute wearable pin. I'll post photos after I get them in the store.

I'll have a St. Pattie's Day version too based on this one. Mmm mint cupcakes.

This is Old Man Grizwald. He's the oldest owl in the woods. He's a cute little felt pin for you to wear. More owl family pins will be put in the store when I have time to sew them up.

Just a small sample of things I've been working on. I hope you like them and I'll post photos here and on Flickr when I have everything ready.

Happy New Year!

Handmade Presents I'm Giving This Year

For my mom I made this Red Hat Pin. The pin is underneath so you wear it like a hat hanging on a peg. I used red sparkle and purple eco felt. I put 3 red beads on the front of the band for interest. This I know my mom will love. She's such a sassy Red Hatter!

A cute Hello Kitty pin for my son's girlfriend. Really easy to make after I sat down and drew out how I wanted it to look. I think it came out really cute and really hope she likes it. I did another one with a pink bow but I'm not sure if I'll give her both or save one for her birthday.

Etsy Store is Open!

O.k. I finally did it. The etsy store is open. I only have one item in there- this sweet little ginger man but more will come in the following days. 2 people have viewed this listing so far and I'm pretty excited about it!

I also promise to blog more often and hope to share my creative process with you as I transform my stationery designs to other fun items. I'll also share fun finds etc.

Some items coming up are scrabble tile pendants with my designs, more felt ornaments and other felt creations. I'm have a love affair with felt right now. Can ya tell?

Wish me luck!
