My First Etsy Sell

It has been one week since I told everyone about my Etsy shop opening and today I’m sharing my first sell with you!  My mother-in-law sold a handful of my other goodies at a craft fair last fall, but this is “my” first honest-to-goodness sell.  It feels really good to finally send off one of my felted toys to a new home.  So this morning, after the routine shower and robe,  I retrieved my clear bucket of felt toys from the closet, located the long neck blue dinosaur and unwrapped him from his protective covering.  It was time to rewrap him in a more decorative way and send him a fond farewell.  Today he will begin his trip to Caroline’s.   Here he is all wrapped up!

Thank you, Caroline, for ordering one of my felt toys.  This felted dinosaur was inspired by my eldest daughter.  When she was a little girl, she just loved the movie “Land Before Time” and that animated film made her fall in love with everything dinosaur!  At eleven, she is currently constructing her own encyclopedia book of her favorite dinosaurs.  It includes drawings of each beloved dinosaur with humans next to it for size comparison as well as neat facts.  Because every one of my felted toys is a unique original creation by, well me, almost all of them have some kind of sentiment or emotion fueling their design.  As a result, each send off will be somewhat bitter sweet, but mostly sweet.  I hope you enjoy your new long neck, Caroline!

I Finally Did It! . . . I opened an Etsy Shop.

I have had a few requests to purchase my felted creations. Until today, I had no “real way” to offer this. Because I am not super internet savvy, I have decided to throw my hat into the “Etsy” ring. So, I will be adding a few felted goodies onto the shop each week. Today I have added four such goodies; my super sweet monkey, my soft white baby beluga, my super colorful rainbow-billed toucan, and my earth ball. Look up and you will see a new page has been added, SHOP; click this link and you can see the items currently for sale on Etsy.

I have no idea how this Etsy Shop will play out; but honestly it does me no good to have these adorable felt toys just sitting around in clear buckets in my closet. Hopefully, I can bring some joy to someone with my creations. If any has any suggestions, please let me know. And I would like to thank the handful of people who expressed interest in my work; you inspired me to put myself out there and give it a try!
