Another one SOLD!

I sold another turtle! Here are the bracelet and turtle packaged and ready to be mailed.

Sorry for the crappy quality of the pic. I tried to clean it up but actually messed it up. Eh.

I found great thank you cards to use for the packaging. And every item gets a Moo card. I want to be busy this weekend making more turtles. I am all out on my Etsy account. I am rather excited about all the success.

Woo hoo! I sold my first pincushion bracelet off my Etsy account. I only had a few Turtles and these bracelets. I've sold 2 turtles and this bracelet. It is pretty exciting.

I just wish I had more time to add more items to my store. Hopefully over the next couple weeks I will have time to work on my store.

Wish me luck.

Turtle in Green

Turtle in Green. Originally uploaded by SewcialButterfly

I received an email from my Etsy account. A gentleman wanted to know if Turtle was made with a green shell. I have this green quilted fabric like the brown fabric used on the original turtle and had evey intention of making the second version. I even listed turtle with the note to check back for a green turtle but have not had the time or inspiration to do so.

This email was the kick in the pants that I needed. I had so much fun making this lil guy last nite. Friends at work have already placed orders for a few for X-mas gifts. I need to make X-mas ornaments this weekend too. Man will I be busy.

Wish me luck!

Up for trade!

Do I have to say it? BH&G stikes again...funny story about this one.

I saw this book on Dirtnapdesigns' stream one night and got totally jealous. I went right away and bought a copy on ebay for .99 only to find out that Leanne offered to trade. Well she wanted to trade one of my prized possesions and I already purchased a copy. Needless to say, i am not trading, but I'm scanning the mag for Leanne and now this copy is up for trade because 2 days after all this drama, I found a copy at the boutique outlet. LOL

Any one interested in trading for another vintage craft book?

I have started a web design process for a Flickr contact. This got a bug up my butt to do mine too. So stay tuned for a new design in the new year.

Wish me luck!

Favorite Fabric Finds

Favorite Fabric Finds Originally uploaded by SewcialButterfly.

I've been collecting a ton of fabric. And as i've been organizing my ever growing craft area, I've come across all my favorite stashes of fabric. Here are my top favorites. I hope you enjoy them. Rather than them sitting in a box waiting to be used in a project, i wanted to share one of my addictions.

I cannot bring myself to cut into most of these. Others I have projects planned in my head but no time to start, much less finish, said projects.

Maybe having these prints posted here will keep me inspired while bringing a little eye candy to you too.

Click the picture to visit my Flickr photo set. Read the descriptions and view large to appreciate the print.

My Vices

My Vices Originally uploaded by SewcialButterfly
My apologies for being so negectful over the past few weeks. I will post updates soon. I just wanted to share this lil blog since I had a moment to spare.
Over the past few weeks I've been shopping at the Goodwill Outlet because I discovered the large selection of vintage books. It being the outlet, you never know what they are going to have because they bring new stock out every hour.

I've been lucky enough to get a generous size book collection started. I am totally diggin' the vintage books from the early '60's.

I went to Ikea last nite to buy some magazine boxes and bought some storage boxes because I have fabric out the wazoo. I was organizing, sorting and storing the fabrics that have been living on my couch. I cam to realize that I am addicted to fabric, books, buttons and my crafts.

I was organizing my Flickr sets when I realized this. LOL So I created a little mosaic to celebrate my vices.
