So many new things!! And a discount!!

I've had so much fun creating new things, and going back to old 'best sellers' from last Christmas season.  Here are a few:

I started making ribbon onesies.  They come with a matching hairbow, and the one on the onesie is removeable for taking out during wash, as well as mixing and matching with the hairbow.  You can also put matching flowers, or solid bows you already own on there!  These are $15 including 2 bows!  I have quite a few on my etsy site, and I can make in any size, just email me for information and customization!

I went back to making some oldies but goodies.  Anyone need a color roll?  They are $7 and hold 8-10 crayons.  They roll up and fit in your purse or diaper bag!  Pair it with a color book and it makes a great birthday gift or stocking stuffer. 

How about a ruffly bum onesie??  I love this new product!!  It's *sew* fun to make and I love the end product.  This is a basic ruffly bum onesie with basic cross on the front.  $17!! 

And I went back to making color aprons too.  I've been making them for gifts and lots of Christmas orders.  Almost too many, so if you'd like some, get your orders in QUICK before I shut it down.  They are $20/each. 

Now, I need two things from you!  One, is go 'favorite' my shop on etsy!  Two, go 'like' my Misty's Blessings facebook page.  If I can get to 180 fans by Friday, I'm going to give everyone a 10% off coupon good for the weekend.  The more people you tell, the faster we get there!  Also, I have 11 items going into a Black Friday Auction that will all start at just $.50 with $1.00 shipping!!  It only runs from midnight 11/26 - 12:01 am 11/28!!  Why not shop online an dget some great deals!!

Custom Crowns

So I had my truly first custom crown order 2 weekends ago at the craft fair at FUMC Pasadena.  This mom needed a wonder woman crown to match her little girls halloween costume, and I couldn't wait to get home to make it.  I even sold another to a lady up in NYC for her halloween party!  She was kind enough to send me a picture of her beauty in it, and allowed me to post it.  How cute is this little one??

I've also received quite a few custom orders for birthday crowns, now that I've ventured into the hand sewing of the felt.  I think they're adorable.  Can't wait to see posted pictures of the little ones in them!

What do you like??

So, I'm 'back in the swing of things."  My etsy shop is open to some custom items, but not all.  But I wanted to poll (all my 10) readers....what do you like best that I make?  I really like making pacifier clips, because they are quick and easy, and great little add on gifts to baby showers gifts, etc.  I sold a few this weekend at Tot 2 Tot, but really want to sell more.  It would help if I actually posted pictures on etsy of all the different choices I have!  Anyways, what else do you like?  What have you seen that you think I could make?  I really need to bring in some extra money, so I need to start planning ahead for Christmas gifts.  I sold a lot of color aprons last year.  What else will sell?  What do you want to buy?  Any feedback would be appreciated!! :)  Thanks!
