March Madness

Well, it's pretty obvious that blogging hasn't really been a major priority for me in 2014!  While the idea of it is perpetually floating around my mind, all I can really say that it's just been a really busy year and I'm sorry that I haven't made time to do it because I quite enjoy it. 

Spring time is a new time.  It's time for new beginnings and fresh starts, starting with updating this cobweb ridden blog. 

Anyway, I haven't stopped crafting.  The winter is the finest time for crocheting and a few months ago, I received a pretty awesome custom request from an etsy customer.  Some of my readers may be familiar with my cOWL's nest 45 RPM record boxes but this was a request for a LP/12" storage box in custom colors.  I decided to crochet various gradient pin stripes and I had some eye popping results.

In other news, after a pretty slow start this past holiday season was the most successful season I've had since I opened my etsy shop.  My sales totally eclipsed all previous years.  I received a multitude of positive feedback, new customers, returning customers and encouragement to keep on doing what I'm doing. 

So what does that mean for the future?  Big, better and prettier plans of course!  Over the next few wks I plan to update my inventory with mountains of new philately.  I also have a ton of other fantastic vintage ephemera to list and then if I can manage to get around to it, there's no shortage of half finished handmade projects that need to get done.  An owl's job is never done.
