Learning to Make A Fairy Garden

I want to make fairy gardens. I just love them. I want to make accessories to sell for them, as well. It is a long process learning how to make accessories. The other day, my daughter and I were in the craft store and saw these tiny birdhouses. We bought one, put it together, the glue is still wet in the image, and left off the perch part. I will now paint it, and decorate it, and voila my first fairy house. I wish I had bought a few more, lol. Hopefully they will have more when I go back.

Make it Monday White and Lime Green Crochet Baby Blanket

Today, for Make it Monday, I completed one of the baby blankets I have been working on. I have a second one that isn't even halfway done yet. This one is a large white Granny Square, with lime green trim. Great as a baby blanket, lap blanket for Grandma or Grandpa, small bed, or couch accessory. Crochet blankets are super warm, even if they have holes in them. If you are interested in purchasing check out my Etsy shop, Missy69. Can be made in other colors, see listing for details.


 On a different topic, sort of, I will be listing auction style items on Ebay, and a limited amount of items from my Etsy shop. This will open my marketing up to two different large venues. Click here, to see one of my Ebay auctions.

Father's Day Gifts

I am feeling a little bit blah about Etsy of late. I don't know what happened there, but I suspect since they went public profits is what is on their mind. There are a lot of low priced, manufactured, rather than hand made items now, and I think that has cut into the handmade market. I try to keep my prices as low as I can, and offer great sales, but mass produced items can be priced so much lower. It might be time to consider other options soon. I realize you have to spend money to make money, but for how long. I had fair sales the last two years, and since November, well, bleh. If you have never heard of Etsy, check it out.


This is a Polyvore set. To see each item there, click the links under the image. That will take you to Polyvore, and then if you are still interested you can click the image again and it will take you to the original shop to purchase.
