All sewed out…

I’m 3 for 3 with the first days of my monthly challenge to post a new item every day in January. I spent today (almost all day) sewing. I finished off 5 new items, one was posted today and then I have items ready for the next 4 days! I had to stockpile a little bit today to make sure that I would be able to post because I picked up an extra shift at work this week.

So while I was sewing I had the TV streaming CSI Miami on netflix, I am almost all the way through the series, but when it ends… what should I sew to next? I am thinking to moving on to audio books. What do you listen to/watch while you craft?

Here are the items posted the last two days.

Daily Listing Challenge

I’ve decided to really focus on getting my etsy shop to a more successful part of my life! To jump start it for the new year I have decided to participate in a daily listing challenge on etsy. I will be listing a new item EVERY day in the month of January. I started off on the right foot with a new VW Bus onesie in grey. I love the fabric that I used for colored part of the bus. I also use it in my construction onesie set.

I have big plans for this daily challenge which includes at least 2 new bouquet arrangements and also at least one new baby quilt. Along with posting daily on etsy I also hope to be posting at least twice a week on this blog. I am hoping to create some decent foot traffic on both my etsy and here at my blog. I plan on posting my experiences with the craft business world while balancing a full time restaurant management job.

Getting items ready to post on my days off is going to be a huge part of this challenge, so far I have tomorrow’s item already completed, I just have to take photographs and get it posted up on etsy. On Thursday I should be able to get at least three more items completed. I am really excited to test and challenge myself this month.
