Etsy Shop Now Open!

I haven't blogged in a few days, nor have I responded to any of your nice comments or emails. I've been sewing! I finally decided to dive in and try my luck at an Etsy shop. It's scary, but I'm gonna try!

I've come to the decision that this needs to be something I'm doing for fun, not to necessarily to make money. Sure, I like money. I need money. I want money. But this really and truly is not about money. It's about enjoying myself...playing with colors and patterns...making something pretty and useful from a flat piece of fabric...improving at sewing...NOT sitting on the couch...being creative. But honestly, what am I going to do with half a gazillion aprons? Put them on Etsy of course!

SO, would you like to visit my Etsy Shop? If so, click here:

Take a good look at the supercute banner...it was created by my favorite artist. I dig it wholeheartedly!


Right now the pickings are slim...cause I'm slow...but my goal is to add two items a week. Hopefully in addition to aprons you'll be seeing some notecards and "Lalka Lawenda" dolls like the ones in this post.

And if you want to tell your friends, family and neighbors to check out my Etsy, I would love that! If you want to link my Etsy to your blog, I would love that too! And a little prayer wouldn't hurt either...a little prayer that if someone does buy something, they'll like it!

Let me know what you think, OK?!


ACK! Update! I SOLD something! Already! WooHoo! Look under sold items! How cool is that! It's the apron I made while listening to Dolly Parton on iTunes! Man, I hope she likes it!

All the aprons in your shop are adorable and if I wasn't an unemployed loser, I'd buy them all.
