I’ve been busy as usual! Something I’ve been trying to do is create more listings for my Etsy shop. I’ve been having fun with balls lately! (why, OH WHY does that always have to sound awkward).
Fun Fact: Did you know that my Solar System is one of the most popular listings in my shop?! It’s a set of 9. I carefully designed each piece to loosely replicate it’s true planet. I then firmly felt each set, and try to do each planet to scale in relation to the sun, which of course, is the biggest. Such a neat learning tool, toy set… classroom aide. I think these would look so cool made into a mobile as well. I’ve never attempted it…but I wish somebody would! The Solar System sets are a made-to-order listing in my Etsy shop. If you are seeing this and want to order one…I’ve decided to offer a coupon code for you to use, just for reading my blog here! Use CODE: SOLARSYSTEM10 at check out! You will get 10% off. click here to find the Solar System in my Etsy shop
One of the new listings is a Flower Jingle Ball. Perfect for spring! This is a toy and has also been wet felted for more durability. The flower has 6 petals, all being different bright colours. The flower also has a stem and leaf. The sizing is about the same as a tennis ball. I’ve created this with all wool and put jingle bells inside. If you would like to order one, use coupon CODE: FLOWERBALL10 and you will receive 10% off when you buy the listing! click here to find the Flower Ball Listing in my Etsy shop (it’s a made-to-order)
Another brand new listing is the Jewel Gnome! He’s fun… I think that’s because I create him using art yarn. If you know me, you know that I have an unreasonable addiction to art yarn. I can’t quit it. I’ve tried. So instead of fighting my demons…I have embraced it by creating things USING said art yarns 😉 SO meet Jewel Gnome. Another made-to-order listing. This gnome is a rainbow gnome(troll person), and the colours are jewel tones. I also wet felt this character and that includes his beard! This makes him quite suitable as a toy. He’s a detailed piece of work as I sculpt him entirely and then wet felt to perfection. I want to create a listing for other gnomes too… such as a primary rainbow colour gnome, maybe some solid options too. These guys are neat story props, pretend toys, nature table display. You know…they ARE neat for decor too! The beards are made using a luxurious ivory teeswater lock. Certain gnomes that I have met along my journey do prefer to be called ‘troll people’… so you might see me refer to them as that now and then. These are each one of a kind, but look similar each time. They are a made-to-order listing in my Etsy shop. If you would like to order one, use coupon CODE: JEWELGNOME10 and you will receive 10% off. click here to find the Jewel Gnome listing in my Etsy shop
If you happen to click my shop and see that a listing is missing…don’t panic! Leave that to MEEEE!!! Just kidding … it just means that I’m currently working on that listing for someone else and I renew each sold listing as soon as I’m done and able to start a new order! This is how I properly keep track of my work schedule and keep myself from getting overwhelmed. It helps keep me in check… keep my brain sorted… keep my list in shape… leave my brain unscrambled…well you get the point. I’m just a one woman show working hard in my corner of dining room zoned into netflix and a glass of ice tea 😀
If you happen to have any neat ideas that you would love to see me try for the shop, please by all means share! leave me a comment… email… visit me on FB… whatever you prefer … I’m game to try! Bye for now… I need to grocery shop dang it.
