New To The Shop


It's been awhile.  The past six months I've been busy sewing, beading, making, and craft fairing; but definitely not blogging.  In the past six months we also packed up our first home, and moved across the state to a new home,  a new job, and a new neighborhood (that was a given, right?).  We are finally starting to settle in, and feel at home in our new area.


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.



Along with the necklaces,  I have a few of my bib-dana dribble bibs.  One of my most popular tutorials, not only are these absolutely adorable on little babes, but they are practical as well.  So, visit my tutorial and whip some up for your next last minute baby shower gift, or pick one up in the shop.

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.

That's the spirit! Etsy is a great way to get started on the online business these days. It did just land on NASDAQ, which means it will get more coverage and attention than before. So I think this is your moment to shine! All those years of preparation and work just seem to be building up to this point. Cheers, and good luck!
