I saw a post on Craftzine about an Amy Butler Inspired Bag contest and thought I might as well throw in an entry. I've always been a last minute kind of girl, so of course, mine was entered in the final hours.
I entered one of my Sash-a Totes. This one has a "Spring" and "Fall" personality, thanks to two of my favorite Amy Butler prints. A pink Lotus on one side and the Morroccan earth tones of Belle on the other.
After seeing all of the fabulous bags on Flickr
, I'm afraid I don't have even the slightest chance of winning, but at least it got me moving to finish this bag. LOL
Which brings me to my next bit of news...A GRAND OPENING! Yes, I have finally opened an Etsy store
It only has a couple of bags in there right now, but I'm working on getting the others photographed and listed. I'm also going to have some craft packs of vintage fabric available, as well as misc. vintage goodies. Something for everyone, I hope.
You'll also notice that the website
has gotten a bit of a face-lift.
Some new graphics, a little flash, and a couple of new features. A "Newly Listed Items" page is so convenient for frequent browsers and a new "Search" function should also come in handy if you're looking for a particular color or specific item.
There's still some tweeking that needs to be done, mainly implimenting a shopping cart. Hubby and I are novices at this, so it takes us awhile. LOL
If you have any other suggestions for improvements, please let me know.
