…is officially Open for business!!!! https://www.etsy.com/shop/SpinnerMomMadeThat And I have already had my first request!!! A fellow Coloradian and facebook buddy has asked if I could make fingerless mitts in orange, and was wondering if I could make headbands and flowers! I forgot to add my flowery hair clips to the shop! Gah!!! But I guess it’ll give me some time to work up some more, and then add a boodle of them next week. So, I am super excited!!! I told dh I have already made enough money in the past three weeks off of knitting to cover the cats litter and food for the month of January, so I don’t wanna hear any more grief about the cats costing too much! 😛
My next goal is to make enough to buy a sofa for my living room. Yes, we left some stuff in FL that has yet to be replaced. 😦 And then maybe a dresser for our bedroom. Right now dh has one box, and I have another, that we have been keeping socks, and pants, and things in since we’ve moved. I’ve been scanning all the Craigslist and local resale shops, but thing like that are still in the $50-$60ish dollar range, and it ~kills~ me because there were re-sale shops in FL that I could get things like that for $10-$20 easily!!!! Guess I’m just not getting the lay of the land to good here yet, and don’t know where things like that are. One of the hazards of moving cross country I guess.
So go on by my shop and maybe even just hit the like button on things or help me spread the word that it’s open if you know people who would like mittens or hats or things like that! I hope my prices are reasonable. I try and gauge how long it took me to work on and how much the materials cost and some folks are saying I’m pricing a bit too low, but then you are talking to someone who enjoys the crap out of making things ~and~ I am so use to just giving things away anyway that I am too happy to just make a little jingle!!! If the shop goes over super big dh said we would all be spending all our free time watching movies and knitting and crocheting! Bwhahahaha! Yeah, dh ~can~ crochet he just prefers playing video games better. BUT if I could get them all making squares that I could put into blankets…. well that would make me giggle! 😛
Anyway, why am I sitting here still chatting when I have orders to fulfill!!!!
