Testing the waters…

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

So I mentioned the other day that I’ve been busy working on a little project that I was excited to show you.  And I AM excited.  But I’m a little nervous too…

Because I decided to start an Etsy shop!  I’ve been toying with it for awhile, but I decided to stick my little baby toe in the water and narrow my merchandise down to Christmas-y things.

I love making things, but you know…my house can only hold so much stuff.  {Somewhere, that just made Tyler sing.}  And every time I walk in to those cute little gift shops, I drool over everything…and then gawk at the price tag.

So I wanted to provide a little place in the world for cute Christmas/hostess/stocking stuffer gifts for the upcoming season!  I made one of everything as a display item and everything ordered will be custom made—at least until I get an idea of what people want or if they even want.

I’m a little terrified that no one will buy anything.  But then again, I’m a little terrified they will!  So here it is…my little venture into the etsy world.  Be kind.

There are picture frames…

And more!  Go check it out!

I’m still working on a few more items and a friend of mine from the graphic design world is potentially joining in the fun—see keep checking back for fun new items.

If it doesn’t go anywhere, no harm, no foul, right??

HOWEVER.  It would be more fun if it at least took a few steps…
