This past weekend my crafty 8 year old niece had a sleepover at my house and we spent a little time sewing. From an old fleece, some fabric scraps and a handful of batting we got an adorable little owl. She ran the pedal of the sewing machine and hand stitched on the eyes and nose. For her first sewing project I think it came out pretty cute. (Now we just need to get it back to her from the bottom of Grandma’s car.)
Every year by this time I am all set for the holidays — with new designs photographed and added to my website and my studio decorated with a Christmas tree and stocked full of holiday gift tags, stickers and cute easy gifts.
This year I am not so ready. New designs are made and slowly making it online. So recently I am trying to get in the spirit by listening to a Christmas station on Pandora and straightening up my workroom to get ready for the holiday rush.
Here’s a little something new in my etsy shop – postcards. I think postcards are a simple and sweet way to send someone a quick little note. For someone like me who doesn’t like to write too much, these are perfect.
