I have to admit, thinking up a title every post is a bit of a chore. I know, I know, how hard can it be? One of my problems is that I can never be sure exactly what I'm going to post about when I start. I usually have a general idea, but, as usual I tend to veer off in a dozen directions. So I can start off talking about my sewing project, and end up talking about the life cycle of the polar bear or something. I can't help it! It's just the way my mind works! (when it's working!) Which reminds me. Yesterday I bought a bag full of retro patterns, really cheap. I was thrilled, and couldn't wait to get home and sort through my treasure. I gleefully dumped the bag out on my bed, and instantly started making a list in my mind about what I would make and when. Then I noticed the sizes. They range from size 8 -14. Now if this was a few years ago, that would have been great! I could have made everyone of them. But, there's no way I can squeeze my size 18 body into any of those patterns. I could have cried in frustration. Obviously when I asked the size 0 girl who sold them to me if they were large or extra large sizes, I shouldn't have believed her. And obviously looked for myself! But I was in a hurry to get home to meet my son. Of course she thought they were extra large patterns! What self-respecting size 0 wouldn't? Sooo I ended up with 32 vintage patterns that don't fit. Lucky me.
I have been debating about setting up an etsy shop. I'm kind of leary about it though. I'm not all that sure how to go about it. I have read most of the instructions on the site, and the one thing I'm not really clear about is the shipping costs. How am I supposed to figure out shipping costs before I even sell anything? Maybe I'm missing something, or just not processing the info correctly, but I can't figure that out. Is there anybody out there that can help me? (and not laugh while they are doing so?) I would greatly appreciate it!
Well, everyone is arriving home from work, and I can hear vague pitiful cry's of hunger. I guess I had better go whip up one of those creative meals I mentioned in my last post. Apparently it's feeding time at the zoo!
