Ode to 2009

Well I'm back online after a bit of a hiatus... And one filled with big life changes. That's 2009 for me! The best of times and the not so best of times. No whining on my part - 2010 is going to be full of FAB things I'm sure! I have a great appreciation and a deep gratitude for my family, friends and all the wonderful creative and work related milestones I've hit this year. I'm sure 2010 holds some kewl adventures for me!

Now that 2009 is done, I can learn from the bad stuff and grab all the good stuff that happened and continue on my craft journey. My big decision for 2010 is to set up an Etsy account. I'd like to test out my chops and see if I can sell some crafts online. First I need to think about items to sell - small, low end pieces that I can ship easily. Secondly I need to do some research on Etsy and all the details around it - shipping, pricing, etc.

If there's anyone out there who wants to share their Etsy experiences with me, feel free to send me an email at thriftybydesign@gmail.com.

Not sure if anyone's read this article but there's definitely a lot of press about Etsy these days...
That Hobby Looks Like a Lot of Work

Project Update

I'm back to sewing. I made 3 iTouch covers - they're more like sleeves that you slip your iTouch into. I also tried a gift card holder - maybe something fun I could sell. Not sure. I started the below this weekend using up wool and felt remnants.



Recent Finds

The thrift stores have been super lame these days. I'm hoping to track down something interesting soon!

Onwards & upwards! :-)
