Wonderful Etsy Shop

Todays great etsian featured shop is
She has the most adorable little crochet hats. If your looking for something to keep your little ones head warm this fall than check out her pumpkin hats. They are just the cutest. But that's not all you can get from her shop. She also sells beautiful scarves and crochet blankets as well. So when the temperature drops outside and your looking for ways to stay warm swing on by and stock up for the winter.

I have asked to send me a small bio about her and this is what she had to say. "I am a stay at home mom of two young boys. Have been crocheting most of my life. Love to make hats, scarves and blankets. Currently making lots of pumpkin hats for Halloween."

An Adorable Etsy Shop!

This great etsy artist has such an adorable shop. I love her cute hair accessories and to know that she was inspired by having a daughter makes it even sweeter. Her hair pins match with everything and add a flair to whatever you ware. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.

I have asked to send me a small bio about her and this is what she had to say. "I'm a 27 year old stay at home mom to my 7 month old daughter. I started making accessories for her when I couldn't seem to find exactly what I was looking for in stores. And I started my etsy store to share my designs with others who may be in the same boat.

My etsy store consists of accessories for any age. My hair clip designs can be worn by both toddlers and adults alike! I love to combine vibrant colors with some sparkle for that extra *pop*."

Please make sure to visit her shop for more great items being sold in her shop. :0)

An Amazing Etsy Artist

This fellow etsian does something that I have always dreamed of doing but I personally have never been able to achieve this kind of talent. In the last few days I have had the opportunity to chat with her some on the daily thread that I manage I she is a very sweet person. I wish her lots of luck in her adventure on the internet high-speed highway. I know her shop will do well.

I have asked to send me a small bio about her and this is what she had to say. “My name is Adi and painting plays an important part in my life. It has been that way for many years. I paint abstract acrylic paintings on canvas, and I also sell their prints.”

You can also find on face book just follow this link.
I hope that you have enjoyed this etsy shop as much as I have.

Please feel free to leave comments and feedback to let know how well she is doing.

A must see Etsy Shop thecrochetloft

I found this cute etsy shop while running my forum thread on etsy.
 She sales one of my favorite items in her shop. (Wristlets) I just love arm warmers and her fantastic shop is stocked full of them.
If your like me and hate being cold stop on over at thecrochetloft and stock up for the winter.

I have asked thecrochetloft to send me a small bio about her and this is what she had to say. "I came up with the name thecrochetloft when my hubby and I were talking of the title he said how about crochet corner. That did not fit, but with much thought I came up with The Crochet Loft would be broader.

I have been crocheting since I was about 8 years old and loved it ever since. Nowadays there are so many types of yarn I like to experiment.

If you have any more questions contact me"

I have posted some photos of these awesome items please take a look

I hope everyone has enjoyed this feature. As a fellow crochet’er I am happy to have had the chance to get to meet thecrochetloft and find out a little about what goes on behind the scenes in her shop.

I just started this new etsy thread!

I've started a new thread in the etsy community under promotions.

Here is what it's about.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ SALES SO FAR ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Here are the rules of this thread. Every morning I will start a new thread. It is simple to be added to the list. All you have to do is ask to be added and type the name of your store with a description of what is in it.

Then I will spend my day promoting one item on twitter from each shop on this list. I will continue to promote until midnight etsy time each night.

Here is my twitter account in case anyone would like to follow me and retweet to help promote the list.

Let’s see how many people get sales.


Anyone who purchases an item from the shops on the list will be added to the top of the list with a heart and date next to their shop name. Then for the next two weeks, I will promote on twitter daily five items and any promotions that you have in your shop. For shops that have made more than on purchase I will add an additional heart next to your name so I can keep track of when your (two week/ or more)twitter promo time is up.

Once your (two week/ or more) twitter promo time is up you will again have to stop by the thread daily and ask to be added back to the list


PLEASE help keep the sales count accurate. If you buy something from someone on this thread PLEASE post the transaction. ANY and ALL sales that are a result of this thread should be posted!!! Here is an example:



Transaction link. (Found in your purchases.)


Please keep in mind that it is just me at the moment running this thread and I sometimes have other things to do (like hopefully not forget to pick up the kids from school lol.) So I ask that you please have patients with me and if I miss your post please post again until I can get you added onto the list.

I made my first treasury.


Daily List

♥ (list manager) – crochet and sewn items for yourself and your home.

So if anyone would like to join this thread and get some help promoting their etsy shop. Just follow this link and sign up let me know. I would love to help out as many fellow etsians ans I can

How to roll with the punches!!!

Well hello again.

It's been forever since I have had the chance to sit down and write out my thoughts and new ideas on my blog.

My life has been super crazy for the last six months. In March my husbands grandfather passed away. Thats when my path in life took on a sharp 90 degree turn. We had to pack up and move into his grandmothers house to take care of her. All other things in my life came to a stop.

So now six months, a lot of late nights and some massive headaches later here I am. I'm trying very hard to get back on track and stock up my etsy store with lots of goodies for the up coming holidays.

Here is a look at what I have made recently. I hope you all like.

These are upcycled crochet rugs made from cut up strips of material 

this is my oval sunshine rug

this is my kick ass skull and crossbones rug

 This is my round sunshine rug.

I hope I can continue to bring about new items and stay on a straight path for a while.

I leave you all with a link to ma favorite free crochet pattern web site. I hope you all enjoy!
