Since the move I decided it was time to revisit the idea of having an etsy shop. I opened my etsy shop long before I ever started my blog. I actually started my blog as a way to promote my shop. After not much time I realized that my blog had become it's own thing. I enjoyed writing up tutorials, and being able to create a variety of items without having to have a cohesive collection of items. I love to work with different materials, and sew for different people. Made By Me & Shared With You, became a way for me to explore and share all of my creative projects, be they: knit, knotted, stitched, serged, or glued together.
Shortly after starting my blog I then began selling many of my items in brick and mortar boutiques and craft fairs. I love this, but I have done well enough that the demand for my items soon took away from the time I had available for blogging and creating my own items. How sad, and how happy all at the same time. So, when craft fair season rolled around last year I told myself I didn't need to feel obligated to blog, and I didn't. Somehow six months passed.
Now with the move, I feel that I have come full circle. I'm still a part of a couple of boutiques on the East side of Idaho, but now that I'm in Boise, I feel a need to regain my online presence. So, I've stocked my etsy shop with some of my biggest sellers, and have plans to add additional items and stock.
Currently you'll find many of my chunky bubble gum beaded necklaces. They are so fun for girls! Great statement pieces, perfect photo props for cake smashes, accessories for flower girls, and great for everyday wear.
I hope that along with my return to Etsy, I can revisit the blog. I don't anticipate daily posts, but we'll start with semi-regular posting and see what happens.
