I’ve been working on lots of custom orders these past weeks. It’s such a neat feeling of making these sales, packaging them up and shipping them out. I’m learning a lot about the small business. I’m learning a lot about how to finish my art, printing art and packaging art. And I’m hoping that people out there are happy with my creations. I struggle with that aspect of it. It’s one thing to give a handmade gift but another to sell a handmade gift. I put my heart and soul into these little creative things I make and I’m hoping people will love them.
A little glimpse of my craft room. Finished projects being wrapped up and other projects just being started.
I’m working on some blogger swap gifts as well. I enjoyed this one so much, I had to do it again!
I got inspired one morning after finding this perfect little shelf for Ellie’s table and while Ellie napped, I went to work on watercolor summer time banner. Each letter of SUMMER represented by something Ellie has been interested in this summer (S-sunshine, U-ukulele, M-mushroom, M-moon, E-ear of corn, R-rainbow). I’ve caught her pointing out each letter and talking about what she sees numerous times in the past couple days. I think she likes it.
And getting ready for Ellie’s party with little wooden creatures for center pieces of course and some inspiration from a beautiful notecard Ellie picked out at our local art gallery.
Lots of crafting around here… what are you up to?
Looks like you are having fun with all that crafting. Currently working on a knitting project, but did sew up some pencil wraps last week, and hoping this weekend to sew up some market bags. And writing, there is always writing 🙂
Oh market bags! Swoon! You can never have too many market bags!
Wow, such a dreamy inspirational home you have!
Mine is full of dirt and harvests right now, full swing preserving season 😉
Oh thank you! I hope one day to be preserving too! Your home is plenty inspirational to so many people, I can tell you that!! 🙂
This is all so great! Don’t tell me your carving wood animals now!
No, I would like to learn though. I bought these pre cut on etsy and then I sand and finish them. 🙂
No one’s going to be disappointed. Everything is so cute and well done. So, well done, kiddo. xoxo
