Springy Sort of Purses

I  made this purse pattern up last Spring, and I am just now getting around to listing them in my shop.  They are just little hip pouches, kind of like an extra pocket.  But what makes them so delightful  is the fabric.  Ahh.... the wonderful Japanese fabric!  Stop by my Etsy shop and check them out.

3 years selling on Etsy...

And where am I now?  I am still trying to sell handmade items on Etsy but my new business tends to eat up all my time.  Around November I thought a good goal for Zemphira would be to have 1,000 sales by my third Etsy-versary.   I did not meet that goal.  Another goal I had was to list a commemorative Polkie the Owl Pot holder.  This I did.  If only I could sell 39 of  them to complete both goals.

The Original - My Favorite

2 year anniversary
1 year anniversary

3rd year commemorative Polkie the Owl Potholder.
Now I see I made the eyes different.
Polkies are fun to make, and they really got me going into the owl-world of Etsy.  I just wish there were more hours in the day to create.  Happy Etsy-versarary to me!  Bellissimo!

Screen Printing with my Sisters

So, I guess I wasn't feeling very "bloggy" during the month of February.  I have been pretty busy working on all the stamp-shop stuff.  My sisters and I took a stamp-making break to screen print some 100 Proof Press hoodies.
The screen came with the biz, so we put it to use.

Mary's inkin' the screen.
Time to squeegee.
Voila! 100 Proof Press uniforms.
Right now we are really busy getting ready for our first stamp show.  Lots of stuff to do.  One day I might get back to my sewing machine.
