Etsy up and running!

I became a little overwhelmed right before Christmas.  2 weeks before the BIG DAY, I had 10 beanie orders so I was frantically looping and hooking and shipping during every available bit of time I might have away from my responsibilities as an employee, mom, and wife.  Now that the holidays are mostly over, I can breathe a sigh of relief.  I did it and only had one snafu along the way (Sorry Mel!).

Being a state employee we have the wonderful privilege of getting furlough days.  You know, those pesky days off without pay to help the state save money (thank God I have a nice vacation bank!)...  Well, someone came up with the fantabulous idea to give us the week between Christmas and New Year's off and with Emma in daycare, I have been able to spend some time actually working on my Etsy shop.  New Banner, new business cards, new blog look (kind of, still working on the kinks) and advertising!

With that being said, some of the hat patterns I have purchased came with the caveat that I cannot sell the hats on Etsy, so I am posting them here for my dear friends and family and their referrals!  Yes, they can still be ordered, in just a slightly different way.  E mail me for more info!

So, I am going to sign off now since I have successfully spent 12 hours in front of this computer and on my day off, I have no business wasting my day here.

Happy New Year.
