Happy Fall................

everyone! This is my favorite time of year. Cool weather, windows open, pumpkin cookies making, homemade soups and all the other things I associate with Fall.



I have finally have finished some bears and bought a new camera to take pictures. So far it is taking pretty good pictures for the amateur that I am. I use to sell my bears on eBay but just recently joined esty.com (well actually last year but haven't done anything with my account). Well there is this group of artist that I joined in blog land and they sell their bears there. I am just wondering what the traffic is like there. Do you think it is like eBay? I love the idea of selling my handmade items on etsy. There are some wonderful artist there. You really need to check it out. I think with the way the economy is going that we all should start supporting these wonderful people who make handmade things. I think that is what we all should do this holiday season is buy homemade items and give to family and friends. Or sell your handmade items on etsy. I know I appreciate nothing more than the time and effort someone puts into their homemade gift. Everything has been getting so commercial these days. I think we need to get back to basics. Give me a handmade washcloth, or afghan or scarf and I am happy. I think that everytime you use these wonderful items from someone you think that person, which is a great thing. But that is just my opinion. What do you all think?

You can check out my etsy here: http://www.petschminibear.etsy.com/ Here's one of the pincushions I am making. The acorn is filled with emery powder to sharpen your pins and needles and is a real acorn cap from North Carolina. I just love these things. Let me know what you think of them.
Happy Fall!!!!!!

I think that selling on Etsy is a wonderful idea. I love buying fabric from them, and I search all the time for that perfect purse to buy. The one that I wanted is by a lady who's shop is Quiltville. Her stuff is amazing.

Oh and I'm advertising on my blog for your store!! ha.
