The Sky Fell
…and I fell off the Internet
but things have been happening, and instead of trying to catch up on everything, I’m going to jump in with
The BIG News
I’ve opened an Etsy shop with my Mother-in-Law.
Beginning slowly, because I really don’t want to overcommit. So far we’ve just got a few things up there (on purpose). I have some concerns over my spoon level, and hers, and the general going into business with relatives thing. I’m trying to keep my hopes high and expectations low, but I’m really pleased with the start.
Eventually I may start a separate shop blog, but for now I’ll just try to give updates here. I’m most excited about the recycled stitch markers (made from earbud cording). The two of us have decided to make a lot of different
stuff and see what gets the best response, but we’re both thinking upcycled and recycled* materials will play a big part. I’m going to be playing around with the idea of making string bags with handles of printer spools, because otherwise they tend to cut into my hands, but those will take a while. I plan to make the next shop update next week.
