My First Plushie Sold!!
I'm so excited! I had tons of pink fur scraps left over from my puppets, and I just couldn't throw them away... so I made a little plushie out of them. I have only listed the two so far, an orange armless Hammie, and my pretty pink Cecily.
Cecily has been adopted into a new home! I am definately going to have to make more of these plushies because they are so fun to create. I will have to say goodbye to her now! She is shown pictured here with her little pig friend from Bubbletime.
Also, my mom and I packed up the kiddos and went to a high school craft fair. We were planning on doing this one, but decided against it due to hectic schedules. Oh my goodness, there were only about 12 venders there! Twelve! I wonder if it was because of Spring (as usually Fall ones are pretty decent around here), or if this particular school just doesn't get much publicity.
I felt really bad about it (I'm the type that can pity buy just to make a slow booth's day), but I told everyone who sold handmade goods about Etsy, and gave them my card so that they could check it out. I came out of there with a lovely handmade apple cinnamon scented candle from Cattle Ranch Candles (click on pic for contact email). I set it up with my great-grandmother's lovely lamb figurine and some sweet Texas tulips.
