Well, I finally did it. It took longer than expected, because of unforeseen family trouble. But, we are back on track now, for the most part. And so, with great pride, I bring you,
My very own Etsy Shop! I don't have many things listed so far, but more goodies are in the works! My sewing machine will be going full tilt, and I will eat, sleep and dream sewing! I have so much more to learn in this enterprise, particularly photo taking. My photo's so far leave alot to be desired. I unfortunately don't have a live model, or even any kind of dress form, to dress up. Therefore, I am left trying to contrive ways to hang or place my little creations artfully, to show them at their best. It is harder than I thought! Oh well, practice makes perfect, as they say! And I need alot of practice! For now, I am just thrilled to have my own 'shop'. It has always been a dream of mine to make and sell infant and children's clothes. I like to make items that are cute, and durable for busy little bodies! Children spend the majority of their time in 'play' clothes and I've found through many years of experience, that they have to be very durable and easy care. Therefore, all of my items will be pretty much wash and wear. Ok, maybe with the occasional party outfit thrown in!
I have to thank my family for supporting me in this endeavor. They have been endlessly patient, listening to me rant on about pattern's, fabric, my frustrations about just about anything! Thanks guys!
And, another HUGE thank you to my very good friend Amanda, from The Modern Brady Bunch Family Blog! She was kind enough to spend a good part of her Saturday designing and making my etsy header! Amanda, you are fantastic! I couldn't have done it without you! Amanda has also just set up a new etsy shop.
Please stop by and check it out! Her little onesie set is to die for! You can find her here, at
6 Little Chickens.
And thank you to all of my wonderful followers and visitors, who left such encouraging comments, urging me to set up shop!
So, please, stop by and let me know what you think! http://www.etsy.com/shop/yoyosandcandy
Have a great day everyone! Anne
