Make it Monday USA Tshirt and Fairy House

I am late, again, even later than last week. I did do these on Monday, just couldn't get time to post about it. The fairy house, is an upcycled plastic popcorn container. I bought that container on purpose because the plastic was so hard, and I knew I would make it into a fairy house, or a garden solar light. See my store for all the details.

 Second is a hand painted USA/patriotic God Bless the USA tshirt, youth size large. Great for back to school. Also see in my Etsy store for all the details.

 I am unsure what I will be doing for this next Monday, but it will probably be Art, lol.

You Can Now Find Me On Ebay, Redbubble and Etsy of Course

A couple of years ago I tried to sell on Society6, so I could list on Etsy like tons of other sellers do.  But the outside manufacturer application was a pain, and I didn't do it right.  Etsy will not let you apply a second time.  Anyway, I had to figure out how to tell my image size, and since my regular camera broke I had to take images with my cell phone.  I finally figured how to do HD pictures that would be the right size.  But, then I couldn't get Society6 to work, so I went to Redbubble instead.  Redbubble is easier, anyway, in my opinion.  Plus, you can set how much profit you want to make for each item.  I have not messed with that yet, but I think I will charge a little bit more for original paintings, than photography just because there is way more work involved.  You can shop for my designs, or millions of other artists, placed on cool items like mugs, tees, pillows, and so much more. You can find me on Redbubble by doing a search for Missy69.  Right now if you use code Thirtyoff you will get 30% off  Men's apparel items.  They are always offering sales, so be sure to check it often.  

I also decided to take advantage of Ebay's 50 free listings each month, to try and move some inventory a little bit faster.  I was doing auctions, but now have changed to fixed price, with make an offer option.  I am slowly adding items there, some have sold already.  Here is one item, but you can click see other items, to see the rest.  I am deciding on an Ebay store, vs PatternbyEtsy with my own domain.  They both have pros and cons, and I am weighing them both.  Pattern recently made some great changes, so I need to evaluate carefully.

Etsy has decided to take away the Etsy mini, so the widget on the side of my blog will no longer be there.  You can always find me on Etsy, by searching Missy69.

I have been in the mood to paint, again, so I will be painting for a while, but still want to get more Fairy Garden, and painted canvas sneakers for Fall done, so soon, I hope.  I just finished another Tshirt for 4th of July, and that will be in my Etsy shop later today.  I am hoping I can add the image to Redbubble too.

Make it Monday: Gentle Waves Crochet Baby Boy Crochet Blanket

For Make it Monday, this week, I finally finished my next baby blanket. This one is for a boy, but could be unisex if you wanted it to be. It is white with variegated blue border. The border is shell stitch and it just looks like gentle ocean waves to me. I love the border yarn, it is my first time using that brand. I am currently working on an owl backpack in that exact yarn. So, be sure to watch for that!

 To purchase the baby blanket, or see other items I am selling, go here. I am also now listing my art work, and photography on Redbubble. If you have never heard of Redbubble it is cool! I will share more about that when I get to the social media part of Redbubble. Just loading stuff now. You can search Missy69 on Redbubble, and you will find all my items.

The History of Crochet

Have you ever wondered about the History of Crochet? I have, and I finally had an extra moment to really think about learning about it. The short video below is a good place to start. It seems to me there is more to it, but I will have to research it more, when I have another free moment to think about it. Do you know about the History of Crochet? Share in the comments.

Make It Monday: Painted Patriotic Toddler Tshirt

I guess my Make it Monday item will be done on Monday, and posted on Tuesday. I just can't seem to get enough time to get the blog post done on Monday. Anyway, this week I painted one tshirt, and started a second. I love painting on Tshirts and sneakers, my new favorite. My pink canvas sneakers, with roses and shamrocks, just sold last week.

 This tshirt is lime green, or neon yellow is what my daughter said. It is a size 2T and has USA flag, and home of the brave painted onto the tshirt. The second has an Eagle on it, but it is not finished yet. Go to my Etsy store to purchase, or make a custom request.

 I have had several Ebay sales. Don't forget to check out my auctions. I will be opening a shop there, not sure when that will happen, yet. I need the time to do it. This is our last full week of homeschooling, so maybe soon. For now just auctions, of old Etsy listings, and non Etsy items like unused video games.

Make It Monday: Swan Hand Towels

I actually did make this yesterday, which was Monday.  I just forgot to do a post.  They are listed in my Etsy shop.  This is a pair of off white flour sack towels, with hanging loop.  I added the image to the towels, then using acrylics and paint pens, painted the image.  There are two in the set, and if you want names and dates, contact me for pricing before ordering.

My fairy house, from Make it Monday, last week, sold already.  I made some strawberry furniture, but I will do a separate post on them.  I am hoping to tomorrow get some other fairy garden accessories done.


Don't forget I am now auctioning off older inventory on Ebay, plus kids toys, games, and books I might come across in my never ending decluttering adventures.  Check my items often, I am always adding new items.  I will probably open an Ebay store pretty soon.
