This Christmas

This Christmas I decided to do something most people would think is crazy on top of everything else that goes on during the holiday season.  I decided to finally open an Etsy shop!

My supportive friends have been urging me to do so for quite some time, but I know the Etsy biz can be tough so I hesitated.  But the past few weeks something got in me and I started creating a ton of things that I love to sew/knit/crochet.  Mainly simple skirts, hair clips, and infinity scarfs.  Since the girls do not need a skirt for every day of December, I opened up shop to get rid of it all (and have a reason to make more of course).

Right now the inventory is mostly holiday items, though that will change eventually.  The link to the shop is in the side bar.  This is expected to be my only post about it since this blog is not about the shop, it's about sharing ideas or experiences with creating/sewing.

Btw, what has everyone else been up to lately?  Lots of crafting?!?  

Lately we've just been enjoying the season - talking about the true meaning of Christmas, reading about the Elf on the Shelf, seeing Santa, and also seeing our first movie in a theater!  We splurged and took the girls to see the new movie Frozen on Black Friday.  I LOVED it!  The girls on the other hand loved the big screen and the popcorn, but were a little concerned with the seats trying to fold them in half and the loud music.  They keep talking about the snowman movie though.  Olaf and the reindeer totally outshine the princesses - a rare thing!  I made them some cute snowflake hair clips to celebrate the new experience, which I'm glad they love.  I have a lot of patterns printed and gifts to make that I hope to get going on and sharing about soon!
