End of the year already..

Well.. another year has ended.. and another year starting.. been working on doing my end of year paperwork.. and thinking ahead for next year.. I hope to have some new items up for sale.. plus work on more fun projects for me.. smile.. right now I am working on an order of KrissKross dishclothes that I got on Etsy.. I should be finished by the end of the weekend.. and will put up some pictures then..

I already know I need to make some changes both in my stores and in my life.. One change will be Listia.. I am cutting back to once or twice a month only.. simply cos I dont have time plus the postage is getting too high and will be raised next month..

Ebay will stay open with about 50 items per month only..

My main focus will be Etsy and my Facebook page.. hopefully that will leave more time for crocheting.. and less time on the computer.. I also have several ideas I want to work on.. more about that later..

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year.. see you next year..

Crochet Bookmarks

This year I added some crochet bookmarks to my sales.. these can be made with many different colors and style buttons.. as well as for paperbacks and hardbacks.. what is nice about them is you not only keep your place, but prevents you loosing your bookmark.. and they are low price too.. $2 per bookmark.. you can custom order from me.. or go to my Etsy page and order there (I currently only have Teddy ones up there).. They make a nice addition to a gift book for anyone.. and also would be nice to add to a Valentine's Day gift or a Easter basket.. These are a few of the ones I recently made..

What's Up?

I have been busy.. it is getting the start of the holiday season with the visit from our friends from Albany.. we had a nice dinner on Friday night at Outback.. then dinner at my best friend's house where she made prime rib.. talk about special!!

Doesnt feel like Christmas though cold.. no snow here.. which is unusual.. I mean.. it is Buffalo.. I cant count too many Christmases without snow.. they are talking a warmup for this coming week too.. suppose to be 60 degrees on Christmas Day.. weird..

Taking it slow here.. just finishing up a few gifts.. and organizing my patterns.. working on ideas for Valentines Day.. my next holiday.. smile.. some items will go up on Etsy right after December.. so watch here..

Wednesday Sales Special!!

For Today.. on Ebay on Sale..

The Conspiracy Club by Jonathan Kellerman (2003, Hardcover) Normally this would be $.99 + $4 postage.. now you only have to pay the postage and get the book free..

I really enjoyed this book and it is in very good condition.. 

Here is an outline of the story.. 

When his passionate romance with nurse Jocelyn Banks is cut short by her kidnapping and brutal murder, young psychologist Jeremy Carrier is left emotionally devastated, haunted by his lover's grisly demise --- and eyed warily by police still seeking a prime suspect in the slaying. To escape the pain, he buries himself in his work at City Central Hospital --- only to be drawn deeper into a waking nightmare when more women turn up murdered in the same gruesome fashion as Jocelyn. As the suspicion surrounding Jeremy intensifies, the only way for him to prove his innocence and put his torment to rest is to follow the deadly trail of a modern-day Jack the Ripper.

Paperback Bookmarks:  So I came up with this.. sorta "stole" this idea from a friend.. thought it came cute.. now to decide on a price.. what prices would you charge for these??

Violet Moon Embroidery

This shop belongs to my Buffalo Etsy Team group.. and I got to see her towels upclose.. they are really well done.. I wanted to get some of them myself.. but alas.. the vet bills and my printer breaking down stopped that..

I told her we should be a team.. grin.. she can do the embroidery and me, I can top the towels with crochet.. smile.. so if anyone wants that done.. I will give you a discount.. just tell her you want me to do this.. and I will do it for $1.. but you need to tell her this before she mails it..

More Fall and Thanksgiving Hanging Towels

Add some Thanksgiving towels to your kitchen.. this towel is topped with off white yarn and edged with a rust brown matching the color in the towel.  The button is a birdie, also rust in color.
Autumn Beauty
