Etsy Store and More

Hello again everyone

I have been really trying hard to get my Etsy Store "out" there and make some more sales I have listed to podcasts from The Quilted Cupcake she has some great ideas and I have taken notes and plan on following some of her ideas, thanks for that Jean.

I have come up with some new ideas for stock for both my Etsy store Neca's Nic Nac's as well as my stall at the Burnie Farmers and Craft Market which is on the 1st and 3rd (and 5th is applicable) Saturday of each month in Burnie, Tasmania.

So firstly I designed and made my Owl Clippie Holder ( for hanging all those gorgeous hair clips on) which you can see an example below then

came up with, in my opinion, the fantastic Fun Owl Tote pictured above. THEN I made the decision to not only sell the finished product in shop and stall, but to also sell the pattern so more people out there could indulge in their love of owls. Tote bag pattern is available in store and Clippie Hanger is in the process of refining the pattern ready for sale.

Thats it for this week, and I promise I will try to blog more often, Love Carol xx

ETSY DUST SWAP September October

looks like its taken me a long time to get back into this blogging thing again. Lots have happened here at home. You can see that today is Nev and Is 2nd wedding anniversary, HE of course forgot but I think I may forgive him because hes feeling sick and had the day off work today.

We had a but of a breast cancer scare recently, but thankfully all turned out ok. I nearly felt guilty leaving some other women at the recall with not so good as my news. It was nice to have a night away with Nev but neither of us were feeling very relaxed and happy at the time.

I received my DUST TEAM swap from Kirsten Baily at
