Snow Means Snowmen!!!......Christmas! :)

We had Snow!
So I made a Snowman!

Meet Ray!
He is a Needle Felted Snowman who's body is made of Falkland wool and Bamboo combined. He is soooo soft!

He stands 4.5 inches tall. He would be a great table decoration!

He is featured in todays Etsy Showcase in the Holidays section.

I Will Be Featured In The Etsy Showcase Frontpage!

I am very excited!
It has taken me a little while to figure it all out....but I think I have finally figured out how to manage my Etsy shop to its best potential.

I like the set up for Etsy much better.
It is a much more over 40 women friendly. Hee hee!
I find its instructions and tutorials don't make me feel like I am an idiot!
I actually can understand what they want and need without much tears or hassle.

I am really proud to announce that My Etsy Shop- Motivated Motion will be featured on the Etsy frontpage showcase the following dates, in the following showcases. I will post the new showcase dates and lists as I get them running:

Jewelry In Progress

I have started my first mixed media jewelry piece which is combining my Jewelry skills with my Needle-felting skills.

The first piece is close to complete. It is a glass with metalic feature pendant on a leather necklace with magnetic clasps.

There is a needle felted tree frog that will be permanently affixed to the pendant.

Here is the item in progress so far:

Doilies are Back!

We have doilies from Nanny Tucker in the gallery again.
They are currently in the Etsy Shop and Carl will have them posted in the Gallery in a couple of days.

Nanny Tucker is my Mother-in-law.

Nanny Tucker Turned 95 in January 2008. She makes crocheted doilies to keep her hands busy. She makes them without a pattern! Her doilies are lovely, and each has its one special personality, as they are no two alike. I have done my best to join up groups of these lovely hand crocheted doilies she has made to keep her hands moving. Nanny Tucker is from Newfoundland and lives in Ontario now. She bakes bread every day, and still lives in her own home. I will give Nanny more yarn and all of the profits from these doilies for making these lovely pieces for my shop.

Making A Business Move

Well after looking at the stats from Ebay and the stats from Etsy, I have decided to make Etsy my primary gallery selling place.

The costs for posting and advertising are much more effective for crafters at Etsy. I will keep the odd piece on Ebay to satisfy the Ebay customers, and to keep advertising the gallery.

Please come by the Etsy shop and see all your favorites hangin out on the pages there.
