New Year, New Rules

I know it's a little late, but happy new year everyone! In honor of the new year, I'm going to make an effort to be better about blogging.

I had a pretty good January... a couple custom orders and such. Let's hope things only get better from here on out.

Anyway, here are my two latest custom orders. Enjoy!

Wow. It's been a while since I've blogged. Time flies, but I'm back now and I've got lots of new items. So, while Etsy is down and I can't do anything there, here are some of my newest items. Let me know what you think!

And, in honor of getting back into the swing of things, I'm doing a giveaway for a free pair of earrings once I hit 200 fans on facebook, so head over there, like me, and recommend me to your friends! Also, if you want to follow me on Twitter it's easy too! Just click the link. :) And, as always, if you would like a custom item, just let me know! It's good to be back and there's lots more in the works, so make sure you check out my shop!

New Car, New Items

I bought a new car two weeks ago. My old one needed a completely new brake system. So, I got a brand new 2010 Toyota Corolla. It's blue. I mean, it's really blue, as you can see in the pics. But it's mine and I love it.

In other news, I finally finished a custom sweater. It took 2 1/2 weeks, but it's done.

I also made a few of these headbands in various colors.

And this slouch hat in black and cream.

And these leg warmers, which are perfect for the cold weather.

This scarf was a custom order that I made on Saturday.

And lastly, another scarf. Every time I wear this scarf people stop me to tell me they love it.

Want any of these items? Head over to my Etsy store and you can get them. They're all made to order, so just tell me what color you want!

Know what I can't stand? When people way underbid things. You want me to spend $3.50 on a skein of yarn and spend hours making you something, but you only want to pay $10? Are you kidding me? Is my time worth nothing? I understand that some people don't realize how much time goes into knitting or crocheting. But the people who bid on these items do! You're hurting all of us when you bid on items for such low sums. Now, I'm not saying to overbid either, but there is a happy medium. But when you bid for such low amounts, you're hurting us all. I can't afford to spend hours making something to make less than $7 in profit on it after all the fees that I get charged via Etsy and PayPal. I'm sorry. Do us all a favor, when they're that ridiculously low, ignore them. Maybe people will get the clue. If you want something that cheap, go to Walmart. If you want quality, handmade items, you need to be willing to pay a little more. No one wins when you sell your handmade items at store prices. The stores sell so many that they can get supplies cheaper and offer them lower. We can't. So please, think about what you're really doing before you bid on those insanely low ads.

Weekend Work

I had a relatively productive weekend. I finished another pair of arm warmers

and this Halloween wreath.I really like how the wreath turned out. I saw the crow and just knew exactly what I wanted to do... but my favorite part has to be the spiders crawling up it.

The arm warmers and the wreath are for sale at
