Still working on orders and gifts.. which is my usual.. smile.. I got the sweater done.. just need to get some pictures.. hope to get those done after Christmas! Back to working on the wreath hotpads.. have 3 more left to make.. then a few gifts to finish.. need them by the middle of the month..
I got an order for wreath hotpads.. and am working on these too.. These would also make nice potholders.. I took a pattern for a coaster and made changes and just made it larger.. double layer.. made of Antique green/gold glitter yarn with red glitter thread for the bow.. picture isnt the best.. I need to add another one later..
I am working on two projects right now.. a baby sweater and some hot pads.. this is the pattern I am using for the baby sweater.. Just about 1/3 done.. pattern is more detailed than I thought at first..but it really looks pretty..
I will put up one item per week on sale.. now thru Christmas.. for a really low price of $2.. if this goes well.. I may do more than once per week.. Plus if you buy $8 worth.. you get a Christmas Star.. $15 worth you get your choice of a Sachet.. you can see them on an earlier page.. https://cattalkbycatsmeow.blogspot.com/2016/11/cyber-monday-sale.html
Plus an additional treat.. spend $10 or more and get a handcrocheted Star for your tree. Your choice of several colors - green/red, red/white, green/white, blue glitter/white glitter, red glitter/white glitter.
Spend $20 or more.. and get your choice of a heart shaped cat nip toy or a heart shaped sachet.. both make nice gifts.. the sachet can be filled with dried lavender or dried peppermint. This is an additional savings of up to $3. This can be your choice of colors and hangers.
Hope you are all having a nice Thanksgiving.. for your shopping pleasure.. you can shop at my store on Etsy for 25% off all the merchandise.. including the clearance items.. This sale will also go through Small Business Saturday also..
Christmas is my busy time.. starts in Early November.. then continues almost to Christmas.. this year I am also making some of my Christmas Gifts, so I got to schedule those in too.. I did manage to get a number of my items up on Facebook and Etsy.. so do check those out..
On Thanksgiving Day I will be sending a blog entry at 9 pm with the code for my Black Friday Sale on Etsy.. all items will need to be ordered thru Etsy for this sale.. so check on my Facebook page and my blog for the sale code.. it will be good from Friday to Saturday Evening..
I got rather busy.. so havent gotten all the towels up that I have for sale.. for today I want to show you two items I just finished for orders.. these are not all the items I made.. just the ones I took pictures of..
This towel set is for an order I got on Facebook.. I do have another towel and can make it in time for Thanksgiving..
This is a lavender sachet I made for a Listia order... I also sell these for $2.75 (right now)..
I love the glitter on this one.. you cant see it.. but the white edging is also glitter with 3 different color glitters (one is red)..
I meant to get this done earlier today, but had a rather busy day with dropping my cat off at the vet, car inspection, and shopping.. so here I am late.. but did get three more towel designs up on Etsy.. so here they are..
Velvet Poinsettia Hanging Towel, one available, $3
I decided it would be best to add three towels to Etsy per day.. these three went up yesterday.. to see the towels as they come up.. it is best to join my Facebook page.
** updated 11/5 to add pictures
Western Style "Peace On Earth”
Hanging Towel, one available, $3.00
Currently, my items on Etsy will not be available as I am attending a craft show this weekend. After it is over, I will put the unsold items back up.. and also be adding alot of holiday items.. so check back after the weekend..
I previously showed you some of my sachets.. and I just finished
another one for an auction on Listia.. just wanted to show you..
For a introductory sale.. I will be selling these for $2.75 for the rest of this month.. as a pre-order special..
These are made special order.. and you can order them in two scents.. lavender or peppermint.. I have most colors both in glitter and plain.. and I probably have any kind of button you want to put on the front.. so do check it out. .
I normally don't do full book reports on books I have read.. but since this is a book written by my cousin's son and my cousin was nice enough to gift me this book and the most important part.. the book was good.. I thought I would do a blog entry and also list this on Amazon, Good Reads and Barnes and Noble..
This book is gonna be part of a series, which is a plus in my mind as I prefer them.. The book started off with 2 prologues, which confused me at first, but after reading a few chapters in, I realized that it was the back draft for the main characters... Greg Loran and Soriya Graystone..
The book is full of dark atmosphere with hidden under currents, which is appropriate to the storyline.. He has alot of descriptions, which helps you visualize both the scenery.. and which is going on in the minds of the characters. I also liked how it ended.. which definitely lets you know there will be another book.. (hopefully soon!!).. I cant wait to read the next one..
I make these sachets and they do really well on Listia.. so now am also putting them up on Etsy.. these are filled with either organic lavender flowers or organic peppermint leaves.. I get them both at the co-op and try to always have a fresh supply.. you can also order these filled with cotton batting for your own choice of scents.
These make a nice gift for a teacher, babysitter, pet sitter, a friend.. also good for shower gifts, put in baskets, for weddings.. etc.. I have two designs.. one a heart and one a Christmas ornament. You can get them in almost any color..
I also sell on Ebay.. all my books are books I have read.. some aren't.. as people give them to me..and I am not interested.. you can see what books I have available on Ebay by clicking the link below.. I am more than willing to sell these off of Ebay/Paypal.. just send me a msg at firstname.lastname@example.org
I havent been feeling well for a while.. I just need to step back and regroup.. and will only be taking small orders between now and Christmas.. once an item that I dont have available is gone.. I wont be renewing it for awhile.. I of course will stop by here at least a couple times a month to drop a line.. and show you what I have been working on.. I just need to not feel like I am on a merry-go-round and just relax cos I am burning both ends of the candlestick.. (gees.. sorry for the metaphors).. Thanks for understanding..
Don't think I will get alot of these done this year.. so if you want them.. order them now. I am stepping back from focusing on my crocheting for sale..and just moving in the direction of making items as I do them.. More on this later..
I finished the potholders for an order.. and added buttons to the towels I topped.. I only got the picture of the potholders.. took it quick on my scanner.. didn't come too good.. what is suppose to be bright red is light.. and what is suppose to be bright orange.. is pink.. sigh.. will have to take better pictures later..
This potholder is a double layer one.. solid crochet on the bottom and a GS topper with a sc edge and a large loop.. I made them 9 1/2 inches square.. big enough for even to use as a hotpad for the table..
Now I will be starting a white baby sweater set.. hopefully tonight..
