Smaller Palm Size ZIP-IT Around Wallet

Just a smaller palm Size! The zipper went in crooked on the sweet forest one, but the Forest Owl ZIP-IT turned out great! Hopefully I will be able to make a few more of these in the next few days! Getting the hang on installing the zipper is taking me alot more time then I would of hoped but I think I am slowly getting it!

NEW DESIGN---Secure ZIP-IT Around Wallet

OK, so I have been wanting to work on this design forever! Well like I said in a previous post, I am in a design frenzy. This one was especially tricky because of course, THE ZIPPER!! After much time and effort, I am very pleased with the result. The zipper wraps all the way around the wallet for extra security. For me that is a must, I want to be able to just zip and drop into my handbag. The Amy Butler Deco Rose was the first one, and the zipper went in abit crooked but otherwise it is wonderful. The Olive Harmony look great! I just listed both in my shop!
I would welcome any comments or suggestions.

Yet Another new design in my shop!

I think I am on a creative roll right now! This I believe is due to several things happening right now with my shop. One is that regular sales are slow. My custom orders are still coming in but this slow down frees me up to start designing some of the items that I have had in my brain for months now.

So, I wanted to design a camera bag for my daughter that had alittle protection from spills. So here is the result! Water resistant nylon lining!

I have 3 listed in my shop right now. Depending on how well they do I plan on adding more in the coming weeks! These would be great for any gadget you may want to protect!

Another NEW Design??

I have so many ideas and not enough time to make them all!! Here is my latest! Just a smaller version of my purse organizers! I call it DROP-IT-IN!! Because that is what you do! Just fill it up with your personal items and drop it in your handbag, how easy is that :)

I would love to hear your feed back on this idea and how I might be able to improve on the design. It has 4 pockets and a key ring. I know it still does need alittle work but I love the concept!

So far, I am pretty pleased with Project Wonderful!

I started PW over a week ago, and so far I am pleasantly surprized at the response from my ads. I decided to place a ton of ads and see which ones got the most clicks in a weeks time. It was really just a trial and error type method but I was committed to spend a certain amount of money that I had budgeted for this advertising adventure. After a week, I cancelled bids that were costing me money and had no clicks. Now most of you would think that I did not give it enough time and I would agree. But since this was more of an experiment I wanted to spend my $$ wisely.

I plan on twicking my PW ads every week and monitoring the clicks very closely. Here is a pic of my ad. What do you think? Does it grab you? Does it make you to want to click on it?

So I won't discuss my age, but I will mention that life really does go by faster the older you get! Yikes!!! My daughters asked me " how old do you feel?" I said "17" haha!! But seriously, I truly do feel , at least mentally in my 20's. Physically is another story!! Some days I feel just wonderful, others not so good :(

To celebrate, after I finish this post I plan on doing "NOTHING" yes!! It is rare for me to just veg for a day but that is the plan. Well almost! I do need to ship a few packages out but I promised myself-- NO sewing today! I will grab my book and coffee later this morning and head out to the couch so my sewing studio will be out of site.... I will let you know how I do.

I never want to post without at least one picture. So here is my latest Business Click-it Wallet!

Currently listed in my shop . Lovely isn't it?

I have struggled with trying to decide if I should continue to make gadget cases. Etsy is flooded with them and it is very hard to compete with some of the prices other shops offer. So after much thought, I went ahead and lowered the price on my remaining stock.

Currently, I do have several designs that are in the proto-type phase, that I think might sale better and be much more functional but they are at least a few months away to being listing in my shop.

So in the meantime, the current inventory of my now discontinued gadget cases are 40% off- so please take a minute to check out the selection at such great prices. If none of these are your style then I offer many other pouches in my shop too!!

Snow Day for Dogs!

Even though it was just a dusting, my dog Ginger loved it! She turned into a frisky, crazy creature once she got out in the snow to run and play. My youngest daughter called her name and snapped this picture as Ginger took a moment to stop and breath!! Love it!!
