So sorry...

Sorry for the break in posting. I've been working on a new item for the shop, creating it from scratch. That means I had to make a pattern and of course work out any kinks I come across. I should finish it today and hopefully have pics tomorrow. I'm still going to be doing some tweaking to it to try and cut down on the time it takes to make it. I'm probably going to have to break out the sewing machine and wrestle with it. UGH!

Well good news though. I made 3 sales today (two pincushions and my scotty dog pin). This is turning out to be my best month so far. I've been spending alot of time on the computer getting my name out there. which is good, but takes time away from my creating.

I've also decided to take the plunge and open a new shop for my collage work. I named it Createitcottageart. I wanted the name to be as close as possible so people can easily find either shop. There are only 3 items in it right now, but I'm slowly working on moving everything over. I put it off for a long time because I can't imagine promoting 2 shops, but I felt like my collage was getting lost amongst the felt and my shop was getting too full.

That's all for now!

Thanks so much. I'm glad I'm not alone. I even bought a new sewing machine thinking it would be easier to use. Wrong!

congrats on the sales! it really is a lot of hard work trying to promote your shop and still make time to craft! Plus I have a "real world" job so it just makes it all that much more difficult! I hope sales pick up by Christmas!
