Sales! Yay!!

25 Apr

I have been excited this weekend because I got some good sales! Yay!! That is always exciting. Someone bought a bunch of my gift bags on etsy.com and I sold some hairnets on www.ebay.com! I hope they keep rolling in, but you never know!

Happy Thanksgiving and a Sale

23 Nov

I hope you have  a very Happy Thanksgiving! Not only for all the food and fun family get-togethers, but may we also truly remember what all we have to be thankful for! God is so good to me and I want to be especially grateful for His work in my life.

I am running a sale in my Etsy store this week:

**Thanksgiving Sale** Use coupon code ThxSale11 to take 20% off your order! Nov 24-28, 2011**

Some of the items that I recently listed are:

Light Pink Bun Cover / Hair Net

Set of Three Hair Nets / Bun Covers

Apple Hand Towel 

I also have lots of Hairnets and some towels available on eBay. I don’t know how to do sales on eBay 🙂 so I just left my regular prices as they are a pretty good deal anyway!

As an added bonus from either store you will get a wallet size calendar.

Happy Shopping!

Denim Blankets

6 Oct

I have four small denim blankets ready to go now. The other day, I got two of them listed on eBay. Next week I plan to list the other two on Etsy.

The first one is a regular blanket. They are made from ‘recycled’ jeans. All the pieces were cut by hand from used jeans. I have avoided any major stains, however there are some pieces with the washed-out look and there may be some very small, unnoticeable stains.

The back is a blue and white check soft flannel. The knots are done with red yarn.

The blanket is about 48” long by 34.5” wide so it is a crib size or a throw blanket/lap robe.

The second blanket is a frayed denim top. The back is finished just like the other one.  This one is about 45.5” long by 32” wide and the knots are blue.

Head on over to my shop, grab a blanket and get cozy! It’s been cold here the last couple days so that sounds great to me! Let me know what you think of the blankets! Next I would like to start working on some bigger ones.

Handmade Girl’s 5T Pink Jumper Dress Amish Mennonite

 Handmade Girl’s 5T Pink Jumper Dress Amish Mennonite

I renewed the auction for this jumper on eBay today. I have actually had it on eBay for quite a while. That’s why I don’t make dresses to sell anymore; it takes them ‘forever’ if ever to sell. The occasional one that I do try to sell, I make a size that someone in my family can wear if it doesn’t sell. There’s always someone else I can give it to, also.

This particular Jumper is made of 100% cotton and a very simple, cute  pattern. It would look great with a white blouse. 

HERE ARE THE FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:

Top of shoulder to waist: 11″

Shoulder to bottom of hem: 33 1/4″

waist: 26″

back opening: invisible zipper

sleeve: sleeveless

Holiday & New eBay listings

4 Jul

Hello! I hope had a great weekend and are enjoying a relaxing day! I had a nice weekend. Yesterday was a blessing to be in church and to fellowship with Christian friends. Last night we were also blessed with a wonderful rain shower!! We here in AZ love rain showers as they don’t come very often. When we saw it was probably going to rain, my brother and I took our hammocks out to the front porch (it has a roof over it). It was so much fun to lay there and enjoy the rain and the lightening. It did get really windy though and we came running in when we started getting soaked! I realize though that many parts of the US won’t call a rain shower a blessing as they have ‘too much’ water.  

I didn’t do anything to celebrate the holiday today, but I did have fun working on different projects around the house in a relaxed frame of mind. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my projects done, so I can’t really say I did much! I cut out a bag I’ve been wanting to make. Actually, I cut out a practice, because I don’t want to use the material I have picked out until I know if my idea is going to work.

I have really been into bags lately. I made one for my sister-in-law for her baby shower. I planned to do a game involving a diaper bag, however I had no diaper bag to use!! So I quickly threw together a simple bag here about the day before the party. Then I made her little girl a matching one for her 5th birthday. Sorry I don’t have pictures to show you. I will take pictures of this one I am making now, if it turns out ok. 🙂

When I was done with that, I sat down at my sewing machine for about 2 minutes and decided I didn’t feel like sewing. Does that ever happen to you??! Hmmm. Now to come up with another project….

Someone told me recently I should crochet baby blankets. I don’t know about that as I haven’t done too well with afghans. But that is what I started this afternoon. I have 3 or so rows done and it is going very well. The pattern I decided on though has quite a few ‘holes’ in it for the poor baby to get his fingers caught in so it might just turn into a wrap or lap robe of some kind. I am using small yarn: baby weight or sport weight whatever it’s called. And a large hook: size I. So hopefully it won’t take too long to get it done!

Tomorrow I will probably go back to normal projects again. It has been fun though to spend a day doing out of the ordinary things.

One of the ordinary things I did do was get more listings on eBay. You can see them here.
