Just say the word! Gosh, there are so many cute "little girl" ideas I'd definitely be a knitting fool if I had a granddaughter.
Thank you all for the compliments - believe me it's not the first time I've heard - "You should be selling these things". It's been satisfying to be making everything as gifts or for myself but I have been tossing the idea around to make something to sell. I've actually been doing A LOT of research to see what's popular and realistic prices I could charge. Not a lot of profit for all the work I put into everything but I haven't given up on the idea yet!
I've got something to show you that has prompted an inquiry ($$$) but probably won't get it posted until tomorrow. Not much time this morning but I did want to show you the last item that went into the second box sent to Emily.
Every year I either make or buy her something for Christmas decorations for her home. I had already picked something up at a craft fair but I wanted to make her something special this year. After experimenting with mosaics for a few months I decided to make her a Christmas vase! I knew I wanted a particular size glass vase but had a hard time finding the right size or not too expensive. I found a perfect one at Michael's, had my 50% off coupon but when I went to check out, they told me those vases were supposed to be removed from the shelf because they were prone to shattering and they wouldn't sell it!!! Not to worry, a chance visit to the Goodwill store proved successful and MUCH cheaper - $3.00!!! This was my first "glass on glass" project and took me a week to complete. I was scared to death to ship it but it arrived safely and Emily loved it!
It's a little difficult to see but if you enlarge the photo "J- O -Y" is on the front with almost transparent glass so it shows up with the candle inside.
