Ahead Of The Times

Well, here in Michigan we are still waiting on some real spring weather to visit us. It has been pretty cold and gloomy here despite the calendar telling us we are already well into April. Despite the weather, I have been busy gettingĀ some summer and Americana prims done. As many crafters know, you always have to stay a season ahead. That way people can buy and decorate with the items for the upcoming holidays. I always have to laugh that I paint Easter bunnies while I’ll humming jingle bells and am making Christmas ornaments on Labor day…

Thought I’d share a couple of things I’ve been working on with you. Haven’t had a chance to list them on Etsy or my website yet.

I just love how these stacked stars turned out! They were a pattern by Thymeless Treasures. The preserved Sweet Annie smells so good!

And this is a new Americana door hanger that I designed…It can be hung or propped up in a display.

Thank You

Well, today officially marks 6 months for Monday’s Child on Etsy….Happy Anniversary! Woot Woot! And a huge thank you to all of my beloved family, friends, customers, followers, and supporters! Without you, there would be no Monday’s Child Prims!

I can still remember how nervous I was to open the Etsy shop. I had some things already in the shop up north and I had done some craft shows with my mom. Didn’t know the slightest thing about selling online nor did I have anything at all to do with Facebook or any other social media site. I resisted the invites from family and friends for years it seems! I read and re-read all the selling on Etsy info and tried to take photos. My hands were shaking as I began setting up my shop and listing my first item…

It seems so much has changed and I have come so far in the last 6 months. No, I did not become rich overnight. Didn’t really expect that anyways! I now use Facebook and other media sites all day long without a second thought. I have been so blessed to have had over 70 sales. It may not seem like a lot compared to some shops, but it is more than I could have dreamed I would have by 6 months. And I cannot believe how much Debbie and her Boot Camp has helped me progress as well. So I’m sending a big thank you to you too, Debbie!

So here’s to looking forward to another 6 months! I have been slowly but steadily working on my goals that I previously posted about. I have listed a first of several recipes in my shop. It was a great deal of fun doing that and I am looking forward to offering more recipes for from-scratch but simple and old-fashioned dishes. I am also still thinking of listing some vintage prim items that keep with my shop theme. I have actually found some things already to get listed. And I have been starting work on my fall items, one of my favorite times of year. I just love harvest and Halloween decorations so be sure to stop by the shop often. I plan on having a large selection of great items. And not forgetting about 4th of July, I just listed this adorable Uncle Sam…

Thank you again everyone! Hope everyone is having a great week!
