The Baking Has Commenced…

December 7, 2011 07:24 by ehouston

…and the first Christmas package just hit the mailbox.

CinnamonRaisinBread-2011

The house is a wreck and will be left alone until just before the big day, so get used to it! 

The kitchen will not be useable, so dig up the take out menus and let your fingers do the walking. 

Don’t bother mom, she’s in the Christmas spirit.

Or, maybe that’s just from imbibing some spirits!?!

If I make it out alive I will probably be 10 pounds heavier.

The postal lady will never even know what hit her.  Sorry dear!

Good luck to all you other fellow handmade Christmas fools!

Local Nashville, TN Etsy Crafter - Penny Bennett

February 25, 2009 09:17 by ehouston

Back in the fall I met Penny Bennett at a craft fair, surrounded by some of the cutest handmade bags I have ever seen.  She told me that she was getting ready to open an online shop, so I added my name to her email list and just a couple of weeks ago she let me know that it's official!  Penny Bennett Totes has arrived!

Spring Inspired Tote with Olive Accents.

It looks like Penny is concentrating on basic totes now, which by the way are the perfect size!  At the craft fair she had many different sizes and styles of bags, made from both new and vintage fabrics.  I cannot wait to see all the great things she comes up with. 

Stop by her shop and pick up something nice for spring!

Artfire - I'm Giving It a Shot

January 17, 2009 11:22 by ehouston

I decided to try opening up a storefront on Artfire a couple of weeks ago.  It's the latest edition to the online handmade stores out there and it appears to have a pretty good fee system.  I figured that after about 7 months of selling on Etsy with very low overall sales, it was worth checking out a new venue.  My hope is that my items will be more visible due to the smaller number of current shops on Artfire.  Now, I just have to work on getting the word out.

Come check out my shop and all the others on Artfire!  It's kind of nice because when you run a search you do not end up with a completely overwhelming list of things to go through.  Plus, sellers can list up to 10 photos, which is great!
Happy Handmade Shopping!

Fun With Etsy Treasuries

November 20, 2008 05:35 by ehouston

I am a member of the Retro Handmade Etsy Street Team and we have been working on putting together a holiday theme Treasury on Etsy.  I have never even tried to get a Treasury or put one together, but today I just happened to notice the total number was getting low.  I just watched the number come down for a few minutes and was able to score a spot for us- I could not believe it!  Now, I would have loved to fill each and every spot with my own products and shamelessly plug my wares, but I was good and I put together something that I think represents our team pretty well.  Check it out and if you feel so inclined, buy some nice handmade retro inspired treasures for your holiday gifts this year!
