I've been planning on opening my own Etsy shop for ages, as some of you might know. I finally started figure out what I want to sell. I love potholders, 'cause they make a great gift, don't take to much time to make and they really brighten up a place (usually the kitchen...).
Well, tadaaaahhh. This is my first new design. Actually, I'd already started with some different colors, but I finished these first. Nice and square. Front and back have the same design. And they are very functional. One could even place a pan on top of it on the dinner table.
I've also been going through the stuff I took with me from Thailand. I bought lots of rainbow buttons to sell, but didn't come to it yet. Last week 2 friends of mine wanted to buy some and I noticed how happy rainbow buttons can make a person. Aren't they cheerful?!
Last but not least, my oldest daughter (who was very sick the last couple of days, hence my absence) came to me with a stuffed animal I made years ago. She was about 2 or 3 and slept with it for many, many nights. Piña , she called it, which means pineapple in Spanish. I forgot all about it and was happily surprised by how much I still like it. Nice and soft too. Maybe something for the shop..??
So that's what's on my mind at the moment. There still is a lot to be done before I'm ready (So don't hold your breath yet). Need to make a lot of stuff, am also restyling my blog and want to start a Color 'n Cream facebook page. Busy, busy... As always I suppose.
Hope you have a cozy weekend!
