Etsy Shop: Whimsies and Rugs!

After months of debating, I have finally opened an EtsyShop!

 I am still learning about Etsy - how to use it, navigate through all the options, and  use what they have to offer to help sell some of our items and to find other great shops, too. There are pros and cons to using Etsy, but I decided that I will never know more unless I try it myself. I hope to share more information about my experience with them soon.

Meanwhile, Check it out, and thanks for looking!

Planting and Organizing!

I have been so busy organizing rug fabric, playing around with plants and spending time with my fairy garden, I haven't had time to make anything new. Here's what I have been up to:

I organized all my fabric into "Made to Order" rug kits! Pick a color scheme, size and shape, before you order your toothbrush rugs. Each kit has been bundled together with a note (for me) to remember all of the details. It took a lot of work to get it all done, but all the fabric will be so much easier to find now!

Here are some of my favorites:
Autumn Bouquet


Silver Leaves

Soft Dreams

Sweet Sally
I'm not sure what I love more about making rugs, naming them or the adventure of never really knowing what the finished rug will look like until I am half-way into it. Fun Stuff!

And speaking of fun....Here's an arrangement I made from a few succulents, an old Christmas tree stand and an awesome pitcher type container with holes (I have no idea what it is for). I picked it up in a shop while on an artwalk.


If you want more information on the rug kits pictured here, or other rug kits I have available, You can find my facebook album here: Made to Order Rug Kits
