It is time...

....to jump on the Etsy bandwagon!

It all started with the little mermaid doll that I made for a friends birthday, it went down well so I ended up making a couple more for other little girls birthdays, somewhere along the line someone suggested I sold them but to be honest, it takes me so long to make anything (because I never have more than 5 minutes to sit down at one time) that I decided to make a pattern for her instead.

It had taken me much longer to get this organised than I thought it would, computer problems along the way didn't help. I really need to thank Dayna and Clare for all their help they did an amazing job as testers, I really appreciate everything they did to help, thank you again lovely ladies.

I thought the shop looked a bit bare with just one pattern in it so I added some buttons, bobbles and magnets that were left over from Kyms shop plus some bento packs.

I often get asked where I get my cute picks and bento goodies so I thought a pack of bento goodies might be a good seller - here's hoping!

I have only put small things in shop to begin with since the whole postal thing is just too daunting for me, everything in the shop at the moment will fit in the regular post box so I won't have to cart all the way to the post office for every sale. Once the sales start coming in I will have a better idea on the postage situation and maybe add bigger items too.

Now, as you know I live in Japan, so what I want to know is, what would you like to buy from my shop?

And now for the special opening offer....

Anyone who buys something from the shop during September will get a surprise gift from me (doesn't include the PDF download I am afraid!) Just quote "super surprise gift" in the message to the seller box when you check out.

Phew, after all that I need a glass of wine!
