Oh yeah, I spent a few frantic hours both Friday and Saturday night, making candy! Somehow, I got it all done, though.
I feel like I neglected both my online shop (Splashin) and this blog for the last week or so. I got busy with orders, birthday presents to be made and candy making. Something had to give. (I'd already given up sleep!!) I resolved to get back on track and list something new in the shop each day of April. Well, I messed up on that goal already!!
I did get the cupcake apron and potholder set listed tonight. That actually counts as three listings as you can buy them as a set of apron and potholders or just the apron or just potholders. They're just the start of all those food oriented items I was making. Look for more later this week. (You can check it out here.)
So, what was keeping me busy all week?
I made a beautiful skirt for a custom order. It's ankle length, made of lightweight cotton/polyester suiting fabric and features fish all around it. I was really pleased with the finished product. I haven't decided whether to add it to my regular merchandise line yet. (I often get new product ideas from custom orders.)
I needed presents for those 2-year-olds, too. For the boy, I came up with an underwater baseball themed outfit:I'll definitely be adding this one to the shop! (The family tots are often the inspiration for new
products for my shop.)
For the female half of the pair, I did something a little more artsy - a painting octopus! I haven't decided if this will make its way into the shop or not.
There are other items I was working on, too. It was a very busy 10 days or so. I'll be adding some of those things to the shop and some were simply for custom orders.
Hope y'all are having a great start to Spring, too.
