Quite A Day

I did a bit of a shop update today. In addition to some staples like felted wool acorns and stones, I also added a new project that I have been working on, coasters. I have a few designs in mind but started with a leaf shape, in a variety of fall colors. I've been using one for the past week and like it well enough that I decided to add them to my shop.

I had to photograph all of my new pieces this morning. This meant I had to crop them, save them, list the items on Etsy, and chase children all at the same time. Needless to say, the process took me h.o.u.r.s...... By the time it was over, I was exhausted. I hadn't eaten lunch and the beautiful fall-ish weather was taunting me through the window of my office.

When I finished the last listing, I bid my computer adieu and trucked the kiddies outside for a walk. I believe at that very same moment, my bark brown acorns hit the front page of Etsy (drats! missed it!) and I came back from my walk to find a handful of sales. Woo hoo!! I'm so grateful...and tired. But mostly grateful.

I'd say you'd had more than a handful of sales ^_~ You totally beat me to the punch with the leaf coasters lol.

You're look much nicer than mine though. I was wondering if you would ever consider posting a how to get nice evenly felted pieces of wool.

My felt that does felt tends to be overly thick sometimes. Any suggestions? I will hunt Youtube today, but your felting technique is always perfect :)

Oh forgive me for the bad Engrish there.

I meant to say YOURS, not YOU'RE (dear lord).

That's what happens with working 30 hrs of OT lol.

Love the toad. I have one that made a toad house in my petunia stack of pots. He is there every morning to greet me. The leaves mean fall is in the air for you also.

Hooray for all the sales! I love your fall leaves, but I don't know if I'm quite ready for them :) As always, your stuff is impeccable!
