I've been working on a secret project

For the last few days I've been working in secret on a special project. After I made the little felt ornaments I just listed in my etsy shop I thought "wouldn't these be cute as graphics for stationery"?After all that's what I do (I'm a sassy stationery gal!). Although I kind of did this backward since I usually draw something out first then make a little felt thingy.


So off to the computer I dashed and I'm really very pleased by how they came out. But now I'm thinking I should make bigger plush Santa & friends with more details than my simple ornaments. See how my mind jumps from thing to thing! ADD at it's worst here. No wonder I have such a hard time getting things done for my etsy shop! I must restrain myself and save that idea for next year since I running so late on this idea! But hey when the creative juices flow you gotta go with it even if the timing isn't always right.


By now you're probably saying "shut up already and show us the secret project!" So here it is.

I made 5.5" x 4.25" flat cards from the graphics. I have the snowman, reindeer, Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Christmas tree. I'll be offering these on etsy as soon as I figure out the details.

Check back tomorrow for a giveaway! You'll love it I promise!

Also please leave comments letting me know what you think of the cards and the graphics. I really want to know what you think.

Re-opened my etsy shop today

I've been really lax about working on my etsy shop. First I was ill then my ebay store needed attention and I also was discouraged by no sales during last year's holiday season. But lately I've had lovely blog readers and twitter friends telling me to go for it so I did. And I'm pretty happy I did it. Even if I don't sell anything I'm happy to have my little felt creations out in the world being seen instead of packed away in a box.

Ho, ho, holidays are coming!



I've been spending the morning working on some holiday promo stickers for the business. They are photos of little felt ornaments that I designed and made myself. I intend to use these on my shipping packages and may possibly include some tags of a similar design inside the package.

My original goal was to make these little ornaments to sell on etsy. But time has gotten away from me again this year and I'm not feeling very confident that they would sell. So I thought they would be perfect for promos and possibly to sell to other sellers with their business info. If anyone is interested please just let me know.

I'm also thinking about having a giveaway of one of the actual ornaments just after Thanksgiving, to spread a little holiday cheer.
