Etsy Shop Update

I made another shop update today. I've been adding a few pairs a day for the last few days but now I've run out of new earrings. Here are a few of the most recent earrings to go in the shop.

I have so many new projects that I want to work on this weekend, I can't decide which to do and I just can't do them all! I'd like to make more things to put in the shop so I can keep it up-to-date. It is so difficult keeping visitors coming to your Etsy site when you make jewelry unless you post every few days to keep your site fresh. But I also have a long list of sewing projects that I would like to work on... we'll see which craft wins out!

So I realized that if I waited any longer it would no longer be appropriate to post a happy new year as it is almost February! How does that happen?! So - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I haven't been doing too much in the way of jewelry making lately. I did a big new batch of earring just before Christmas and sold them all at a jewelry party in Maine. I love my customers up there!

In other craft news, I have been going to town on my sewing machine! I made a few things for myself and some Christmas presents while I was at home on my mother's sewing machine as well. No machine is safe! I thought since I haven't been making a whole lot of earrings lately, I would post some pics of my two new favorite sewing projects. I recreated a shirt from my favorite shirt that I've been wearing too frequently. So the blue shirt is from my own pattern and the black dress, which has polka-dots on it, is just the shirt but longer. I like the simplicity of the forms (even if my grandmother thinks they make me look prego!).

I've also recently joined Ravelry, a online knitting community and hope to get back on that bandwagon as well. It is just so hard to knit when it is warm out!
