I have been working on some new ideas for my shop.....I want to try and make some different things along the lines of my I Spy Bag. I notice some of the other sellers are making some great shapes, i.e. birds, hearts, stars. They use fleece as a fabric which makes this a little easier. I am using cotton ( which I like because I have an unlimited amount of fabric choices) but am not sure what I can do to change it up a little bit.
And I am really wanting to start some clothing. All along I had planned for clothing and then the I Spy Bag became the focus. I would like to find another my lunch bags or clothing to add to my site and make a main focus. It has been difficult for me to find the "one" thing that works the best and then put most of my focus there. This year my plan is to get to that point.

Starting Up

Today is the day of beginnings. After having this blog for several months I am finally at a place where I think I can regularly commit to posting.
Today I worked on my shop finally getting up the new avatar and banner I had created especially for me. I think that it is so appropriate for my shop.
My shop is named after my daughter Ainsley and my French Bulldog puppy Oswald and the banner is a great representation of the both of them.
I also updated some of my photos....photographing my work is one of the most frustrating parts of having a shop....(that and marketing) I love the creation but can never really bring that across in my I guess I will have to keep on working on that.
I am hoping to get the rest of my new listings up for lunch bags and maybe work on some new designs for I spy and also some clothing for the shop. We will see what happens.
