What I've Been Doing.....





Some of you may know that I like to make things. Lots of different things. And I have a bad habit of starting things and not finishing things, but that isn't the point :)
But anyway.....
I have been making things here and there and I have decided to open an Etsy shop. Cause ya'll know how much I love Etsy! Getting this started is slow going for me. I am trying to get things made in advance and I am selling stuff as fast as I am making them! Which is good, I know, but it has taken me a little longer to get this thing started. Here are a few pictures of things I am making and selling. I have some ideas for some other items, too. I will keep you posted when the shop os up and running and when there are new items listed! Please remember my photography skills when you are looking at this. I am trying people! ha ha!

Tissue Holders

Tissue holders with tissues in the front one! That's how I will sell them. Unless people want to buy their own tissues....
Some more prints that I have made...

These are the same as the ones above, I just turned some over so you could see that some of the backs have different fabrics.



Zebra print tissue holder and matching bookmarks! Aren't these cute?


and for you die hard Auburn and Alabama fans......I thought I had an Alabama tissue holder, but I already sold it. Don't worry! I have more Alabama fabric! And the hounds tooth bookmarks.

Alabama Roll Tide thumb tacks. I haven't made any Auburn ones like this yet. I can't find any fabric that the print is small enough.....unless I just use solid blue and orange.

And here is what you do when your washing machine breaks and you can't wash clothes...you make a lot of bookmarks.

A close up of some bookmarks....

And the crayon rolls! These are great. And these 2 are already sold. But I have a lot of fabric to make more. I even found Dr. Suess fabric last week on his birthday :)

This is what the inside looks like. They each hold 16 crayons. Crayola, I might add. I am a total art supply snob, if I must admit. No cheap crayons for me. They are not the same!



Thanks for looking! I know it was a long post. Tell me what you think.....just be nice :)

All very cute! I love your bookmarks, especially the houndstooth ones. :) You also make me want to get a corkboard.

I'm also loving those bookmarks! I was looking for a bookmark this morning in fact. How much are they? Can you bring a few to church on Sunday? I love Etsy also! I buy stuff there all the time! I also love those crayon rolls you made. I liked those when you first made them for your kids at church. I might want one of those too! Thanks for letting us know about your upcoming store! I need you to teach me how to use my sewing machine!!
