my 200th post and the Big Announcement!

200 posts in 2 years! Not bad huh? I never thought I'd do this many & here I am still enjoying it. & here you are still reading.... it's been so much fun to get to know other bloggers! That's the best part of this I think, community.

But you're not here to celebrate with me, are you? You're here for the big announcement! Ok, ok... here goes....

I finally opened my etsy shop! I know, I've been talking about doing it for ages. I finally got my act together & did it! So now if you want to purchase one of my original patterns, or another handcrafted project, you know where to go! Here are some pictures of things you will find there for the grand opening.....

zipper pouches for all the kids treasures...



 Fabric storage baskets for all your projects (they make great Easter baskets too!)...

 And your very own copy of both of my original patterns...

And of course, every celebration should come with a giveaway, don't you think? Leave a comment here by next Wednesday, August 25. Tell me what your favorite item is in my shop. Or suggest something you'd like to see there, or something I could do to improve it! I will draw a random winner from those who comment. Your prize will be your choice, one of my patterns (whichever you like) or this lovely basket....

Good luck to you! & thanks for stopping by to visit. Next week I will be celebrating the beginning of the schoolyear for my kiddos.... lots of crafty time ahead!

I love the little zippered pouch with the mouse fabric. Everything is great, but that little touch of whimsy just drew me in :-) (not hardly surprising since I just sewed myself a pillowcase with Little Red Riding Hood Fabric)
