My First Give Away!

Just sitting here thinking, I said earlier this summer that I was going to do a give-a-way. well, summer was really busy for me. but now seems to be the time!

So.............I am going to give away one of my new little bats!  this little guy sits just 5 1/2" tall.  his bottom is filled with beanies to give him some weight and he will not fall over!  just right for sitting on the table or in a window!

I finially got something done

It has been a long summer baby sitting my grand daughter, but she is now back in school!  Yeah!  I forgot what the feeling was, I remember what it was like now when I could not wait for my kids go go back to school!  oh the peace and quiet!  Now it is time to catch up on things.

I have a few new paper patterns listed on Esty now. including the crow and the turkey that I did. but I also listed this cute little floppy eared bunny rabbit!
He sure does not look cute and cuddly looking does he. maybe because his ears are to long!  He sure was fun to make!  My daughter has the pattern now to merge the directions to the pattern pieces. I cant do it on my computer, I just don't have the software for it. but once she gets these last 3 back to me, then I can offer up epatterns as well. so much easier when you can just add them to an email and send it out. sure saves on postage! and saves on waiting on the postman as well.

I have three more that I am working on, the prototypes are all done, now to just get the patterns written up. that should not take long. it is getting easier the more that I do. but I sure do hate all the proof reading!

Everyone stay safe if you are in the path of Isaac!

Great Weather!

We have had some really beautiful weather up here in Maine this past week! not to hot during the day, the humidity is down, and nice cool nights. great sleeping weather! So I have neglected my computer work for working outside. I have mowed the lawn, cut down some dead flowers that have been dead for awhile. started laying a flagstone path, and did general clean up around the yard. with baby sitting this summer, I just have not had the time to do what I usually do!

and I course, I have been working on some of my patterns. I know that they are simple things. but that is what I was looking for when I first entered the world of prims. As I do more patterns I will probably get more creative. but right now I am happy with what I have. I also have my patterns listed in the "Prim Pattern" there is a button on my side bar, and also the "Pattern Cupboard", and of course on esty!  I have already sold several patterns of which I am ecstatic!  I know it takes time for people to find my things, it took me over 3 months before I got my first sale on esty, of course it still is not where I would like it. but I am still averaging one sale a week. just wish it was more regular!

but for now, I am off to bed, for some reason I just cant seem to catch up on my sleep after this summer!

Have a good night!

another long day

but only one more babysitting!  yeah!

I did manage to get a few things done today though. I got these cute little turkeys all done!  I am working on writing up the pattern for them. but kind of cant do much computer time with the g-daughter here.  but tomorrow is another day.

he is nice and chunky, just right for sitting on your table! hopefully I will have him listed on esty here in a few days.  hopefully others think he is cute to and would like to make one for their table!

I have a few more projects that I am working on. no baby sitting tomorrow so should get some good headway going.  if they turn out I will post pic of them also!

have a good night and enjoy this nice weather while we have it!

Long day on the computer

I have been spending my time getting my patterns listed in different places. and learning new sites is not fun!  but I now have them in stores on esty, lilyshop and bonanza.  those I will have to email out.  and then I have them on Craftsy and Prim patten. those sites are instant download, so all I have to do is to monitor them and hopefully watch the money roll in!

I would really like these patterns to make it.  it would be a good supplement to my income. but will see.

in the meantime, I am having a blast when I actually get to work on a new creation!  its just the computer work that I don't like. but gotta do it!  :0)

Has it been that long already!

I did not realize that it has been so long since I have posted.  I have been pretty busy between my grand daughter and trying to write up some pattens to sell. so far so good!

I only have 2 more days that I am going to baby sit, then school starts, yeah me!  so I can get back to the business of getting my business up and running!  trying to find websites that I can list my patterns on can be a chore. but once I get a few going I will be on a roll. and I am getting there!

In the meantime I am going to post a few pic of what I have designed these past few weeks

I sure hope that some of these guys sell! I would really like to break into the  pattern side of Primitives!

You just gotta see this little guy!

So this is my little beaver! He really came out pretty cute if I do say so myself!  and I didn't even have to remake any of his parts!  Now to just get the directions written up and I will be set to go!
