Face lift

No, not me. But since having kids almost 4 years ago, the lines are starting to show! I came up with a little saying:
Having kids doesn't age me, I'm just more responsible looking!
Never the less, I do love my 2 kids, they are my inspiration! So, onto the face lift! As you may or may not have noticed, the blog as a new title design! And with that came a new face lift for my facebook business page and my etsy shop. I had the an awesome business page on facebook design it all for me. You can find her on facebook: Grace Creative

A few months back, I tried my hand at making a miniature doll. I called her Ruby and gave her to a special little 2 year old girl for her birthday.

Then the other night, I decided to try a fairy. She went to my daughter's friend for her 5th birthday.

 Since making these two, I have discovered a few tricks to making them, so hopefully will be able to try my hand at making a few more sometime and they will look even better!

If you would like to try your hand at one, patterns can be found at Ginger melon's shop on etsy.

Lullaby Mobiles turns One!

So today, 1 year ago, I took the leap of faith and started making mobiles! I look over the past year, my work, the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into my business and I would never thought I would be this far, so quickly!

It started out slowly, with the first few months wondering what would be ahead. I did so much research, tried to learn as much as I could and made as much as I could.

On the 3rd June I opened up my first online store on Etsy. I excitedly made my first sale on the 12 June 2011 to the United States which was the following mobile:

I remember when the sale came through, I was so excited that I ran around the house squealing with delight! I still get excited with every sales I make! From October, my sales picked up tremendously! It was rather overwhelming but exciting still the same! Christmas came and went and my thinking was that it was pretty just going to all die down.... boy was I wrong! Lets just say people thought about Valentines Day pretty much as soon as January started!

I am really excited about the future. My husband has been a wonderful support during this first year. It's a plus having a husband that is a life and business coach! He keeps me sane, on my toes and totally keeps me real! Love you babe!

So with all that,,I am excited to now announce the winner of the $40 voucher! Thank you to the 46 of you who entered to the comp.

Winner through is number 32!
And here is number 32:

Congratulations Melissa! Please email to claim your voucher!

Here's to the next year!
