A new venture

Well the doll venture didn't get off the ground so I have my mom knitting doll stuff for the Alexander dools. They can be found at: http://www.pinmeup.com/

I am so tired af making mesh bags every day from sun up to sundown. I have decided to take a day or two a week to do something different. I bought one of those madame Alexander dolls and I am making doll clothes. I make my own patterns so that there is something a bit different to what everyone else is making. Here is my first one made from dark green tafetta with a gold waist belt, sewn onto the waist and there are tiny multi colored rhinestones in each square.

March 2010...still lots of snow

The weather is nice, we can actually see the sun after it hid behind the clouds for 3 months. I just wish the snow would get warm enough to melt this snow faster! The front of my house has 5 steps up to the front door, you can't even see the top step yet.

My newest venture

This is my first set of flowers that I have made for my second shop on etsy. In the next few weeks I will be loading all different colors and designs to my shop......

I have decided that it isn't good to have all your eggs in one basket. Having a success full Internet business means you need to be on top of the current trends at all times.

Having one shop with one line or design is a good thing as it attracts that specific buyer and keeps them interested in your shop but it doesn't help you sell when they aren't buying.

I have decided to open up my other 2 shops and have a specific product for each of them as well...

The second shop I opened up was pinmeup.etsy.com and that is where I originally started to list my sewing creations. I am re-opening it and it will become my handmade supply shop. I will mainly be focusing this shop on handmade organza, satin flowers.

These flowers can be used on knit and crochet hats, trim around tops and dresses, hair clips and bobby pins...there are actually a multitude of uses for these flowers.

If you would like to get a feel for what my house looked like before and after, go to my blog archive down the right side. Click on the date 08(19) entries. You will be surprised at what we started with.
Keep in mind this looks like a small house but there are 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens. 2 bedrooms are upstairs, 2 on the main floor, one of which we have turned into a small dining room as I like space in my kitchen, and 2 in the basement. The basement is fairly light and bright and also has a small 2 piece, ancient bathroom and a really sad kitchen. We eventually want to take the little bathroom out and the small kitchen and turn them into a very large Bathroom with a very large bath tub or jacuzzi......but thats another day.......

If you have the time and the money and want to retire, SMOOTH ROCK FALLS, Ontario Canada is the place to come...We bought this house for 25,000.00 in 2007 and there are lots of nice houses here, that don't require the work ours does for under 40,000.00. You can even buy houses here for under 10,000.00! Seriously!

These are my own design...featuring 100% cotton mesh and 100% cotton toppers. These toppers add a lot of stability to the mesh portion of the bag along with pretty designs. These bags are meant for large items that are bought at the market by item and not by weight as the bags themselves do add weight. So when you are at the market and they want to dump those potaotes from the basket into a plastic bag, give them your pretty cotton mesh bag. Great for ears of corn, brocolli, celery, lettuce....tons of stuff!!!

It's been months!!

I can't believe it's been months since I have blogged! I was busy getting ready to travel round trip, over 1,600 miles to a big earth day Celebration at a school in ST. Catherines...
My computer has crashed and I am waiting for it to be fu\ixed, as soon as that happens I will post some pictures!

I found a great quote today and I just had to use it in my Etsy shop:
