A Long Time Coming!

So it feels like longer, but yesterday I realized it had been almost 2 months since I've sewn anything for my shop. It was so lovely to cut into fabric, and be able to iron and sew and take some photos all in one day! It's hard with 3 little ones always grappling for my attention, but of course they come first. I was able to get into a groove because my youngest son was away visiting my parents, and my oldest helped entertain the baby. I can't tell you just how gratifying it was to finish a project in one day! I know it's a small project, but right now it feels like a million bucks!

I just listed this baby this morning! Check it out and tell me what you think!

Happy Inaugural Tuesday! Amy

New Ideas

Well, I've been thinking over the last month or so of ways I can make this blog more fun and interesting. I definitely want to do more writing about my peers and Etsy, but I also want to share more of my SewArtsy product with you. That said I thought a giveaway now and then would be appropriate, so today's going to start the very first one!

Here are the details on the first SewArtsy Giveaway:

Up for grabs this week is this SewArtsy Charming Tote. Made with Asian-inspired prints in browns, blues and oranges, this fully lined tote with single shoulder strap is sure to make an impression. It's roomy enough for everyday essentials, and closes with a leather lace and toggle at the front. Measures approximately 12"wx13"H. All fabrics are interfaced for durability.

*All you need to do to be entered in the giveaway is leave me a comment below - about the item, my shop, my blog, etc.! US addresses only, thanks!

**If you'd like to be entered a second time, blog about this giveaway and leave a second comment with the link to your blog post!

***If you'd like to be entered a third time, add yourself as a follower of this blog (first time followers only, please), and leave a third comment that you did so!

The commenting on this giveaway will be open until 11:59pm Sunday, January 11, 2009, at which time I will choose a winner at random. Winner will be announced Monday morning, January 12, 2009.

Also today's SewArtsy Deal of the Day is a coordinated set of zip top bags, 50% off today only! Click here for details.

All the best in 2009!

Happy new year my friends! Hope you all had a blessed holiday season! I'm sure glad to get back into the swing of things here.

For my first post of the year I thought I'd share a few of the wonderful items I gave and received over the last month or so!

First up, thanks to my incredible circle of friends here at home for throwing us an incredible Welcome Home party for Charis. It was a sweet time, and your generosity was overwhelming! I have some amazingly talented friends who knew I was hoping for handmade items :o) And afterward I was in the buy-for-new-baby mode, and I snatched up a few of the Etsy items from my baby wishlist.

And with Christmas fast approaching at the time I also shopped some fab Etsy shops to find gifts to give. Some places I shopped:
**Fun Button Hip Clips for 11 year old neighbor from Button Boutique
**Awesome emery Pin Cushions for sewing friends from Dottyral
**Sweet Bows for baby girls from Tara Marie
**Soft and squishy cloth balls for babies from Muse
**Adorable Pony Tail Holders and Hair Clips from Mary Marsh at Meeting Street Designs
**Super-fun jewelry for friends of assorted ages from fellow Amy in the Arts teammate AlwaysAmy
**And everyone on our Christmas card list received a darling photo card of the boys with their brand new sister along with holiday greetings handmade by another Amy teammate, Amyzo

Some extra-special gifts I received for Christmas:
**An incredibly special personalized necklace with the kids names and birthdates from ChristinaPDesigns

**A gorgeous pair of earrings and a Signature Chain bracelet from Mary Ellen Doran for our CREST team exchange

**Actually a gift for our 10th anniversary - an amazing Ametrine solitaire ring (ametrine is special to me because it is the natural blending of two quartzes: amethyst - my birthstone - and citrine - Josh's birthstone - he gave me a necklace with this stone for our first anniversary)

Overall, spending time with family and friends this Christmas and New Years, and having a little downtime, was the best gift I could have asked for! I look forward to a wonderful year ahead, hope to share more with you, and get to know you all better.

Happy new year! Amy
