I Sold A Bear!!!


I sold a bear, I sold a bear! Right out of my very own etsy shop! I'm so excited. How fun is this?! To be able to craft something I love just for kicks and giggles and do it for free, because somebody just paid for my supplies?! WHA-HOO!!

I took my $9.00 in hand that I received for little bear and hit the only garage sale in town last weekend. These are my treasures ~ a wonderful wooden embroidery stand. Yeah! No more death grip on that old embroidery hoop, I can actually stitch hands free now if I so desire. It will definately help with those hand cramps I get after stitching for an hour or so. I got two great little antique doll clothes patterns that are very fun, one redwork iron-on transfer pattern, about 4 yards of some great blue fabric and one Louis La'Mour book for Riff. Nine dollars well spent, huh?


I received this great Pink and Brown swap package from Kari at ArtsyMama . Look at that fun Valentine Day banner. The vintage card attached to it has an incredibly small envelope that folds out about six inches with a note written on it. Very cool! The heart box is bursting with all kinds of crafting supplies, ribbon, buttons, tickets, and yarn to name a few. Thank you, Kari. Great stuff!

Happy Valentines Day to one and all...

It's the greatest feeling to sell something that you've made... and then getting to splurge on a little something for yourself afterwards! :)

I hope you had a lovely Valentine's day!

Good for you! I feel the same way when someone buys my scarves and scrunchies.

What a nice gift you received. New craft supplies just can't be beat!

Bravo on the Etsy shop. You'll have to tell me how it was setting up a shop! I'm getting ready to do the same and I'm curious. :D

Your bears are really darling. :D

Congrats on your sale, your little bear is soooo cute. I sure have had the garage sale bug here, but that won't happen for a few more months. Looks like you recieved some really nice items in your swap. I think the swaps are so much fun!!

Congrats on the Esty sale!!!! That is too cool Paula!

I guess this means you're buyin' the wine, eh! I guess you'll have to help Wende and me with Etsy so we can buy wine too!
