I just had a convo message in my Etsy shop email that I’ve been featured again on another blog.  It’s very flattering when this happens out of the blue.  It was a feature of Valentine Finds on Etsy.  Take a look here at the Bags and Buds blog – thanks Wendy!!

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming in my Etsy shop.  The inventory right now is a bit low because I had a decent summer/early fall in sales.  Somedays I wish I had more time to sew/work, but then I would be missing out on precious time with my kids.  The time will come…

I just couldn’t resist adding a song for the day… Here is Foals with Balloons.  I really love this song… it reminds me of the alternative 80’s music I used to listen to back in the day.

Well folks, my Chinese Take-Outs are officially in a store!  You can see them if you visit this adorable and fun gift shop in downtown Minneapolis – CorAzoN.  The owner has a little area dedicated to local MN craftspeople and artisans.

As far as news on the Etsy front… I need to get in gear and get some more inventory going for that little online shop too.  I have some fun new fabrics that I’m hoping to work with real soon!

 

I’m working with a boutique/gift shop shop in downtown Minneapolis to get my Chinese take-outs into their store.  They have two stores, so I will supply both on consignment.  It took me awhile to get up the nerve to approach a store, but I may be hooked now.  I meet with them again next week!

Well, yesterday I shipped off my very first custom order.  It was for a bride that wanted a Chinese Take-Out box for her flower girl.  She’s going to carry it down the aisle and throw rose petals from it.  How sweet is that?  I’m hoping to get a photo of the flower girl with the take-out box.

 

I am still working on a few new Take-Outs for my Etsy shop with some amazingly fun new prints!  

 

In other news, I have a new favorite song.  I guess I’m not your ‘average’ stay-at-home Mom.  I’ve never lost my desire to rock out to a new song.  My kids love to dance and jam with me too.  Life is too short to act grown-up!   This is the band Kings of Leon and the song is Sex On Fire, enjoy.  

*** side note:  I don’t play this song for my kids.  I’m not quite ready to field questions about what sex is from my 6.5 year old. 🙂  And thankfully she’s never asked.

Not a whole lot of sewing going on here as my kids like to stay up later now that it’s summer!  It’s hard to get motivated to go downstairs in the darkly paneled basement to sew when we have beautiful weather.  Also, sales in the Etsy shop have been slow this month.  Who wants to sit at a computer in the summer to shop anyway????   It’s understandable.

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!  We spent our long weekend in Wisconsin fishing, napping and hanging out with family.  It was great.  My husband and I actually got to go out on a mini-date after we put the kids to bed on the 4th – we needed it.  It’s been too long.  We came home to MN with one sick kid.  She always seems to get sick on our last day visiting family.  Her body just gets worn out from her regular schedule of sleep and healthier eating.  She gets so excited and happily worked up about seeing her Nana & Papa and cousins that it takes everything out of her and by the time we’re ready to say goodbye she usually has a fever and she’s spent!  Thankfully our little guy didn’t catch it. 🙂

yeah, i’ve been bad about keeping up with this blog, taking a little hiatus from sewing/blogging and dealing with a few other things in life right now

 

BUT-  Yesterday, one of my new MN Etsy Street team friends included me in her Treasury West on Etsy!  It was so sweet of her – she said my polka dot Chinese Take-Out box inspired her!  Thanks, Chureen! 

 

on another note here’s a new song for today – I’m going to start including music selections in my blog because it’s always been the one thing that can really turn around a sour mood for me 🙂

This is the Doves and the song is “Snowden”

 

Happy Wednesday!

 

 


 

Despite my lack of craftiness lately – I have managed to get a few more items done for my Etsy shop.

Here is the newest item:

I also have a new Tote, but I was not happy with how the photos turned out – please standby, more to come soon!

 

My son has given up his afternoon nap, so I am desperately trying to keep him busy in the afternoons because nowadays he will fall asleep by 4pm and then he won’t go to bed until 10pm!  My afternoon crafting time is mostly diminishing because of this reason.  It’s a hard transition when kids give up their naps.  I think it’s hardest on the moms!
