Sorry We’re Closed! and a Giveaway

Yep, I’ve Closed  the Shop, Shut the Doors and have moved on.

If you’ve followed along for a while, you might have noticed that I used to have a link to an etsy shop. Yes, right over there on the right. (under the picture of that adorable baby…) But wait, it’s gone! Where did it go???  It has mysteriously disappeared…..

You caught me. As my son says, ‘You were jus jokin’.’ It didn’t actually just disappear. I hit the delete button! I had an etsy shop a LONG time ago, but never really did anything with it. But what I did do was sew and sell things locally in about 7 or 8 shops. Then with the economy headed in the wrong direction a few of the shops closed. I had a baby…. Blah blah…. And man, sewing for wholesale and consignment is a lot of work!! But then I thought I’d go with it again….So last year I re-opened my etsy shop thinking, I can do the etsy shop, blog, work full-time, be an awesome  Momma, sew for the kiddo, make fun random stuff and do my photography business. i know what you’re thinking…. She’s insane… Yep, I kinda am! My husband just rolls his eyes, smiles and tries to come up with ideas on how to make things easier for me!

Wondering what is it that I make???

Well, I talked about how I started here with my I’m scared of really big cushions story when I re-opened my shop. Although I make all sorts of things, I sell a few particular pieces…




Baby Blankets and Ghostie Dolls.

When I started I also did pillows, but rarely do those anymore.

All my pieces are made from post-industrial recycled materials (scraps from an upholsterer that I reuse rather than sending them to the junkyard). So therefore each piece is different. And on top of that I freehand stitch images of birds and flowers and rocket ships and all sorts of things onto the pieces!

Why am I closing the doors on da-a tis, you ask?

First off it was getting a bit stressful trying to keep up. Secondly, I fell in love with blogging and making a wider assortment of things. Thirdly, I discovered quilting! And lastly and probably most importantly, I love seeing my son’s face light up when I make him something. I know that isn’t going to last forever, so I decided I wanted to spend my sewing and crafting time making him things while he enjoys it!

Are you still reading to figure out what the giveaway is?

  1. I do the same thing. I am thinking I will reinvest myself in my Etsy shop, but I love sewing for my girls and blogging. It’s hard to do everything!
    So, now I make a few hats, and I think I will just start posting anything I make for my girls. It’s awfully hard to make all that stock, only to have it chill on the shelf waiting on a buyer!
