So, I am finally caught up on my 365 postings and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I absolutely hate falling behind on things and I am so happy to be caught up on at least one thing in my life. My apologies to anyone whose RSS feeds were overrun with my photo posts. Heh.
Monster Hat Madness continues around here and, while I am secretly longing to return to my paints, I have to admit that I’m having fun designing hats. I just finished my first Owl Hat and I’m pretty happy with it. It looks like I’ll have the opportunity to make a few more soon and hopefully, it won’t be long before they show up in the Etsy shop (famous last words!).
I still feel like a stranger in a strange land there. I’m really trying to familiarize myself with the way things work and how other people manage their shops, but I’d really much rather spend my time designing and creating. If anyone out there has any words of wisdom or encouragement with regards to the confusing quagmire that is Etsy, please don’t hesitate to share!
Speaking of sharing, I mentioned previously that I have been working on some things to share with parents (or grandparents, or babysitters, or anyone else who dedicates time to entertaining/educating kiddos). Right now, two of Sir’s favorite things are ABCs and coloring. So, I’ve been making alphabet coloring pages for him. I am hoping that eventually I will find the time to tweak some of the designs and make my own little coloring books. For now, I’m willing to share some of them here on my blog. They will be in .pdf format making them easy to download and print. I am hoping to post the first one this week (on Thursday maybe – just in time for the weekend when it is easy to run out of fun kid activities).
And so it goes…
