Exciting News

I am a crafter. A crafter who likes to try variety of projects. Mostly I enjoy projects that repurpose, or reuse something.

Mittens made from old wool sweaters?

Oh yeah! I'll give that a try!

Mod Podge transfer onto an old crock?

Let me at it!

Reclaimed barn wood headboard?

Yes please!!

Okay, so the husband helped me with that project. He's the best!!

A pillow made from old t-shirts?

Right up my ally!

Yep, I'm a crafter. 

So what's the point you may be asking. Well, the point is that for years I have talked about the possibility of selling some of the items I craft. I may have even mentioned it here on the blog before. I've talked to the husband about it quite a bit, and for quite awhile. But I have done nothing to pursue this idea.

Until now that is.

With a great deal of encouragement from the husband -which I needed, because, frankly, selling what I've made makes me nervous, which is why I've talked about it for so long but haven't done anything about it - I recently began to sell some of the items I craft in a really great little shop called Eye Candy REfind-SQUEAL

Here's what I've been working on for Eye Candy.

Barn wood picture frames. How cute are these?? I'm sorry! Is it okay to say that I think what I've made is so cute??

I've also done some that will be fun for Father's Day.

I've been busy turning old feed sacks into comfy pillows.

They didn't all make it to the store though. I may have kept one for myself!

I've been working on these cute little driftwood boats and wire baskets.

And one of my favorite projects has been making fabric flowers. I love these!

I've just been crafting like crazy to add things to the store.

I'm having such a good time. But I want to go bigger!

I told you in a previous blog post that I was working on something exciting, well here it is...

I'm going to be opening my own online store! -DOUBLE SQUEAL!!!

I'm working fast and furious to get the online store open.

I've installed a "SHOP" button in the navigation bar so the store can easily be accessed from the blog.

I will be selling handcrafted, repurposed items, and maybe even some unique things I've found while on the hunt for reusable goods. -WHOOP WHOOP!!

I really hope you will like what you find in the store!

So, hang in there! It won't be long until I announce the date of the grand opening!

This just has me giddy!!!
