I sold another turtle! Here are the bracelet and turtle packaged and ready to be mailed.

Sorry for the crappy quality of the pic. I tried to clean it up but actually messed it up. Eh.

I found great thank you cards to use for the packaging. And every item gets a Moo card. I want to be busy this weekend making more turtles. I am all out on my Etsy account. I am rather excited about all the success.

Woo hoo! I sold my first pincushion bracelet off my Etsy account. I only had a few Turtles and these bracelets. I’ve sold 2 turtles and this bracelet. It is pretty exciting.

I just wish I had more time to add more items to my store. Hopefully over the next couple weeks I will have time to work on my store.

Wish me luck.

Turtle in Green

Turtle in Green. Originally uploaded by SewcialButterfly

I received an email from my Etsy account. A gentleman wanted to know if Turtle was made with a green shell. I have this green quilted fabric like the brown fabric used on the original turtle and had evey intention of making the second version. I even listed turtle with the note to check back for a green turtle but have not had the time or inspiration to do so.

This email was the kick in the pants that I needed. I had so much fun making this lil guy last nite. Friends at work have already placed orders for a few for X-mas gifts. I need to make X-mas ornaments this weekend too. Man will I be busy.

Wish me luck!

Up for trade!

Do I have to say it? BH&G stikes again…funny story about this one.

I saw this book on Dirtnapdesigns’ stream one night and got totally jealous. I went right away and bought a copy on ebay for .99 only to find out that Leanne offered to trade. Well she wanted to trade one of my prized possesions and I already purchased a copy. Needless to say, i am not trading, but I’m scanning the mag for Leanne and now this copy is up for trade because 2 days after all this drama, I found a copy at the boutique outlet. LOL

Any one interested in trading for another vintage craft book?

Favorite Fabric Finds

Favorite Fabric Finds Originally uploaded by SewcialButterfly.

I’ve been collecting a ton of fabric. And as i’ve been organizing my ever growing craft area, I’ve come across all my favorite stashes of fabric. Here are my top favorites. I hope you enjoy them. Rather than them sitting in a box waiting to be used in a project, i wanted to share one of my addictions.

I cannot bring myself to cut into most of these. Others I have projects planned in my head but no time to start, much less finish, said projects.

Maybe having these prints posted here will keep me inspired while bringing a little eye candy to you too.
