A couple of new things in my shop...

I've been spending lots of time online trying to learn about making my own website and setting up my blog. There is so much information out there and I'm thankful I have the time to do this now.
I've also been at the machine and put up two more items. I will upload pictures at the end of this post. More to follow soon because I also spent many hours cutting out totes with coordinating linings. It's so much easier and seems better use of time, to have a cutting day. I've done that before with other bulk items and it just makes sense. It's a good plan for Yo-Yo's too. I'll spend my down time cutting out circles and stitching them up. I store them in a zipper bag and it's easy to grab and go with me. Also, I try to keep a variety of colors available so if I make an unexpected "adjustment" to an item, I can always place a coordinating Yo-Yo over it! This keeps my products unique and OOAK (One Of A Kind).
I wish I could figure out how to put tabs up at the top of my page. I want to put all my photos of handmade things together, instead of spread out here and there at the end of a post. Seems more organized!! So, if anyone has figured that out, drop me a note! I have seen them on other blogs, hosted by different "hosts" but they haven't jumped out at me on blogspot yet.
I've been thinking that I should do something interesting here. Something to make other bloggers dying to come back. I thought of "Tip of the Day" as in Craft Tip but I wondered if all the info stuffed into my brain regarding all things sew/craft, could roll out in the form of Tips? It would tie in nicely with my Health Tip of the Day for both Doggies and Humans-- that I added at the bottom of my page. Pretty cool gadget, I say! Hey, I think my Yo-Yo talk could be considered as today's Tip !!
Now to add pictures and hopefully get to sleep at a decent time.

Here is a tote... complete with tropical drink recipes on it!

This is a diaper cover for a little girl. I love black with pink!

 Until next time.... stay sparkly,

I'm learning how to add pictures... watch out!

So I'm figuring out how to add pictures to my blog.  This could be a dangerous thing for all who know me. Most of the family and friends, know that when I capture that perfect (or even not so perfect) photo moment on my phone, it's just a matter of seconds before it's live on Facebook!  I can't help it.  With just a touch of a button, it's loaded. Amazing!
Here are some favorite pictures of our current day furry children. I don't really need their permission to post pictures.  I think my real children would prefer to approve first.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome to my blog.

I'm so new at this but I think it will be fun to learn and fun to meet others who do the same, or even those who don't ! The main reason I'm doing this is to be able to have another page to display things that I create.And I like to talk, even to myself.

I just recently set up shop on ETSY I have a few items listed and earlier this month, had my first sale (YaY!).  I spend way too many hours looking at the amazing talent on display. One click leads to another and before you know it, time has slipped away. I'm definitely learning a lot though. Feel free to contribute to my posts.  I love chatting about crafts and of course our doggies.  Let me know about cool sites or blogs you follow.
Until next time!
