Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all of those that do some fathering out there, including the Mom's who have to do both jobs, the Step-Dad's who don't get enough credit, and the neighbors and mentors who just look out for each other. This day is about the men who take the time to be in a child's life, and as anyone who knows me in the real world knows, I consider that a pretty important thing.

Now let me gush.

I am lucky enough to be with a terrific man who has been in the lives of me and my children for almost two full years now, and who has stepped up to taking on the two best kiddos with great gusto. So there wasn't a dry eye in the room when we woke up this morning to Baby bringing in the Father's Day gift he'd made for Travelous, thus marking Trav's first official Father's Day.I am so lucky to have such a great FAMILY!

On to other things...

Heather (my sister) asked me to make a Teenie for a birthday gift for a friend of hers, which I did and then immediately listed on Etsy at 7am yesterday. I looked at something else and then went back to look and the Teenie was GONE! Apparently Heather is an early morning surfer like myself and had already snatched it up. Can I tell you how glad I was that she liked it, so I didn't have to spend last night making another one? The links are to the Teenie, so in the off chance that any of Heather's friends happen upon my blog DON'T CLICK! I mean... you never really know, right?

So not having to make another Teenie freed up some time to start something I've been thinking about, which is making small wall art quilts that are designed to be hung together on a wall. I'm still working it out, but I saw another blogger decorate her baby's room in these wonderful small quilts she made, and I thought it was gorgeous. So I can't figure out how to market them on Etsy (sell together as a set, or individually), but any advice would be welcome. Here's the beginning of the first ONE. Now I just have to figure out the rest...

here's what i think..you make them to go together, but sell them seperately, but in one picture you show them all together, so your buyer goes "oh my gosh, i simple must have the set"...and voila you have made a multiple sale...

sneaky peaky...

Yeah, the decision is made! Now to figure out how to make them so people will think that...

you just have to make it clear in the description...for example "you are looking a #1 from the "blah blah" quilt series...for #2, #3 and #4 see my other listings..

and then you do a big blabby bit about the design etc and how they will look great as a set or indivdiual (can't spell that word!)

hope that makes sense...and i'm not saying your quilts are blah blah, that is just instead of your title!!
