  1. I am working on chair pads and chair back pads for our church where we will be using metal chairs.

    I love to paint.

    I have a large custom order waiting for my attention at the sewing machine.


    I have been a blog follower for a long time.

  2. Hi, I just became a follower today.
    I'm a DIY, artist, small business owner and blogger.
    I just added 8 new items at the Cafe' http://www.goodmemoriescafe.etsy.com

    Thanks for letting me share this information! http://www.goodmemoriescafe.com

  3. I've been following for a while, and I love this blog! Here are my 3 things:

    I am embarking on a new project just for me - skirts! http://toteallyreal.blogspot.com/2011/02/ready-for-springand-skirts.html

    I am reading "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mireille Guiliano, for the third time. I love this book.

    I desperately need to add some new items to my shop! http://ToteallyBags.etsy.com

  4. I'm reading UnMarketing by Scott Stratten.

    Blog Post - Spring is happening

    I reached my goal of 200 sales and am now looking to reach 250.

  5. Christie, thanks so much for being a long time follower! Good luck on your large custom order.

    Elizabeth, thanks for joining the community, I look forward to getting to know you and your business. I love the vintage hats in your Etsy shop.

    Donna, thanks for being a follower! I checked out your blog post about skirts and I think I am going to have to get one of those books. I would like to know more about "French Women don't get Fat" Why is it your favorite book?

    Linda, congrats on making your sales goal of 200! I am sure you will have no problem making your new goal of 250. Love all your cute earrings for spring.

  6. I have a couple of things to share today too:

    I am now have low cost ad space available on my blog. Click the advertising link at the top of the page for more information.

    I finally took pictures of all the new items I have made recently and will be adding them to my Etsy shop over the next couple of days.

    I am a member of the Chicago Style Crafters Etsy Team and I am attending my first meeting this weekend. I am looking forward to meeting fellow Etsy shop owners, and working with the team!

  7. I am trying to figure out what my "shop inspiration" is for my upcoming blog feature here (which is really more difficult that one might think)

    I decided last night to write an ebook on product photography with some listing tips thrown in

    I'm going to leave work early today so I can play outside in the nice weather. I'm hoping my boyfriend is feeling up to playing with me (he's been sick)

  8. Kziegler, I look forward to finding out what your "shop inspiration" is for your upcoming blog feature, let me know when it's posted! Your ebook sounds like a good idea, keep us posted on you progress. Enjoy your weather.

  9. I'm working on my local Etsy team (can't wait for our meeting Sunday!) which is a great opportunity to learn from the expertise of my team members, and to create exposure for each other's shops. I'm really excited about the things to come!

    Because of reading so many craft/DIY blogs lately, I've caught the bug, and hope to stop by my local thrift store soon. Right now, I'm going to be looking for furniture & home decor that has promise . . . repainted, decoupaged, something like that. I'll do these projects with my kids because we need a bit more "family-time" - I've been really busy with work lately & kind of MIA.

    My goals for this year (for my Etsy shop) are to come up with new products and streamline my branding. I've already got test products out to my friends for feedback and have wrangled a co-worker/friend who does graphic design to help me with the branding stuff.

    I'm excited to come back to this post, probably this weekend, and check out what everyone else is up to!

  10. Ashley, I look forward to meeting you on Sunday! I think it's very cool that you are going to be doing more projects with your family, and that you are test marketing your new products. I look forward to seeing your new stuff.

  11. Hey,
    Thanks for the opportunity. I am a jewelry designer and have an Etsy shop as well as being a blogger.

    I hope your readers will take a look at my shop and blog!



  12. Melike (A Cup of Sparkle), your jewelry is very lovely. Thanks for joining us and sharing your links.

  13. Hi there, I am a fairly new follower.
    Today I made a dress for a three year old from old sweaters, buttons, and an organza flower.
    My Etsy shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/dressedtothe9s where I never seem to have enough time to get more things listed.
    Here is my newest posting on my blog , I hope you enjoy.


  14. Connieb, your flowers in your Etsy shop are beautiful! I look forward to seeing more of your work soon. Thanks for sharing your links.
