Whew…it’s been a crazy couple of weeks with my little Etsy shop! I had 4 orders, 3 of which came in within a day or two of each other, and they are all finally done! Woohoo! My husband related completing all my work to finishing up finals in school, and I completely agree! He has been so supportive and gracious as I have let laundry get
really a little behind and have spent most nights in the past weeks wrapping and working on projects. (Have I mentioned what a gift he is to me? He really is!)
I’m so thankful for the busyness I have had in the shop lately, but I’m not going to lie, it’s nice to be able to sit and not have to worry about deadlines and finishing things up! Now I
can may catch up laundry. 🙂
I’m excited to share my completed projects with you here! They were really fun to make! I am always so thankful and count it a privilege to create things for people. One order was for an aunt giving her new baby niece a gift for her nursery and another order was a set of bookends to decorate and bless a momma at her baby shower. These are big and meaningful events in life, and again, I am so thankful that my little creations can be a part of these fun moments!
These are my nautical themed letters, and I LOVE them! They are wrapped with a nylon “rope” like material which is thicker than the normal yarn. Thicker wrapping material equals less time to wrap and make! The white with blue just scream “put me in a beach house somewhere!” I love these, I love making these, I just love these!
This set of bookends turned out so pretty! Though in this picture the pretty brown color gets lost in the bricks and wood it’s sitting on. Just believe me, the dark brown with different shades of turquoise was absolutely stunning! I love the way they turned out!
This is the set for a new baby niece. Precious!! The “R” is a tricky letter to wrap, but overall I am really happy with how it turned out. I love the sweet colors for this order and think it will be so cute in the nursery!
Now, can we talk about this little piggy? Can we talk about how stinkin’ cute it is? I mean, I just can’t get over it! It’s one of the cutest little animals I have ever made, and I love it! 🙂
My final order got finished up quicker than I ever anticipated! This one had me worried, as the “G” and especially the “B” are trickier letters to complete. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to finish them on time, but I did! It helped to sit outside and work while the kids were playing and to take advantage of any down time I had. The picture above was a particularly beautiful day in the “office.”
Sadly, I didn’t get a completely finished picture (they are missing the bookends and not staged as well as I normally like to do), but you can get the idea from this picture. I love these colors together! They are almost exactly the colors for the nursery of a coming little baby girl, so I hope that they are just perfect! I’m so happy with this set!
So there you have it! All the cuteness that has been taking up my extra time lately. I would love to know what you think, so feel free to let me know in the comments. Have a wonderful evening friends!
