I had something so neat happen last week...
I was at 999 sales in my Etsy store!!!
Well, I declared it on Facebook as I couldn't
believe I had almost reached 1000 sales
after all these years of having my Etsy shop.
My sweet friend Cindy Craine of Lilly's Lace
messaged me and said,
"Create a listing for a baby shoe pincushion for me,
I want to be your 1000th sale!!"
How wonderful is THAT???
I haven't made one in a while but of course,
it all comes back to you when you get started.
I sell the tutorial in my Etsy shop
if you're interested in seeing how I put one together :)
Since I was making Cindy's special order, I decided to go ahead
and make another for the shop as well.
I painted the soft leather of the vintage baby
shoes before I put it all together!!
I painted them a beautiful champagne color using
regular old craft paint. I think what I used was from
Folk Art and I love this shade because it reminds me
of beautiful old pearls.
So here is the sweet pair....
one will be heading to Cindy and the other
has been listed in the Etsy store!
I also made a lavender sachet for a friend and
made just a few extra to put in the shop too!!
I hope you are doing so good this summer!
I'm so sorry if I've not been to visit your blog lately,
I plan on visiting everyone really soon ~
Thank you always, always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!
I hope you have a great Thursday dear friends,
hugs and love,
