Yum, yum dessert

Here is my latest collection of pendants being sold at my etsy shop. They were inspired by tasty desserts. I was up late one night, not being able to sleep (again) due to ideas flowing throught my head. I almost wanted to get out of bed and start sketching these. On the top row, we have: Rainbow Sherbet, Strawberry Cheesecake and Spumoni. Bottom row, we have: Watermelon Sherbet Pie, Mississippi Mud Pie and Key Lime Pie. Ok, are you drooling yet??? Bon appetit!

The Wonderful World of Huggaboos

I'm so pleased and excited about this new venture with my daughter. My 9 year old has been bugging me for awhile to help her sew some stuffed animals that she could sell on etsy. So, I sat down with her and we figured that she was capable of making the cute little plushie "things" that are popular now.

She eagerly set to designing some. With sketchpad in hand, she showed me three designs. I brought out all the fabric that I've been holding onto and all the other accoutrements that we would need. I let her pick the fabrics, embroidery thread colors and anything extra she wanted to add. She went even further and added personalities and a little secret message sewn into each one.

We set to making her first one, Goonie, and the world of Huggaboos was born. I have to say that because she is homeschooled, we get to spend hours of our day working on her little Huggaboos. I couldn't be more pleased. This is what makes my day :)

Find her Huggaboos in my etsy shop here.

Sending my goodies out into the world...

I'm trying to get more interest in my etsy shop and I know one way to do that is to send out freebies to be included in swag bags and giveaways. I don't mind doing this as I think it is a wonderful way to get your items out there in the world so everyone can see how amazing my stuff is :)

I recently sent two necklaces to Modish for their monthly goodie box giveaway. They are my favorite designs, very simple and bold and I LOVE the color combos.

I'm also sending out 25 little cupcake charms to The Sampler to be included in the March sampler. I've always wanted to do this but never did. Now, I am very excited to be involved in this awesome concept. I love my little cupcake charms so much. I'm wondering if I should offer them for sale at my etsy shop or have them be a sampler only special. What do ya' think??

And then, of course, I recently sent off my Valentine hearts to Haute Market.

If anyone knows of more ways for me to get out there, please let me know.
