Goodness on Etsy

One of my New Years Resolutions is to spiff up my Etsy site, drive more traffic and get inspired to come up with some new items.  I got a dose of both, as I subbed as an intervention specialist and had a light schedule.  I found lots of interesting things to try, and one tip in particular gave a link to re-create your treasury on your blog. (If you don't know what a treasury is, go to etsy, and towards the bottom left, there will be the option to view recent ones or "hot" ones.  If you get alot of folks to view yours, it could become hot, or on the front page!)  I so enjoyed picking mine out, and then, I discovered someone else had chosen the same title just a month ago.  Oh well, I was inspired by Goodness and Light.  My pinterest boards start with the theme of goodness, so I just translated it with my etsy choices.  I hope you will visit each one, and maybe find something you'd like to start the New Year out with!

Settling into January, just had our first big snowstorm, and I hibernated yesterday, working on data entry for hubby, and settling into less retail hours. I will be subbing tomorrow and all week for a home ec teacher friend, so I will make up the loss of hours.  My sewing has been on hiatus after the flurry of gift making just before the holidays.  I have cleaned out my surplus items having gifted them to friends and family, with the hopes of creating some new items.  I have a stash of embroidered placemats, that I am thinking of repurposing into casserole caddies, or knitting/crochet rolls.  I hope to post a tut on my next post.  Please feel free to post your ideas, or links.  I hope to share what you find.
Till then, stay warm and keep those hands busy!
