The Big Launch!

Hi all,

Do you see my big news!!! Over to the left….

It all started with these – covered notebooks.

December 2011 014

I was making TP’s end of year presents for his teachers. And I really love the process of starting with scraps or small pieces and seeing were I end up.

I loved quilting them and adding the embellishments – ric rac, buttons, flowers.

And I thought “I wonder if I could sell these?” and I asked a couple of people and got some good feedback. So I am launching my very own (holy cow!) etsy shop!

Jump on over and have a look! If you know anyone who is looking for quality gifts or even for some self-spoiling (is that a word?) send them to visit me! I will be adding more items regularly….I have a million ideas racing around in my head!

I might even have a giveaway to celebrate! Keep an eye out for that soon!

I feel like I have done the NASA countdown for my own shop….so exciting….I think I need a glass of wine now to calm my nerves!

Good for you Jess. You have the talent. Get it out there and let everyone share....oh! and make yourself an income to spend on lovely fabrics :-). Going now to look at your shop.

Congratulations, what a great idea for you, given you dont live in a city, but you can still have a shop...and not pay rent, or have to open at 9am! Hmmm,I look forward to hearing how it goes because you have really got me thinking...and I do live in the city! Follow your dreams. Happy quilting, Sue SA.
