Mad Hatter Knittery

I'm doing it.
I'll be opening my Etsy shop this month.

Hurrah!! =)

I'm so excited and quite a bit scared!  I've spent most of the last few weeks going like crazy to make up enough things to put in the store, take pictures, obsess and such.  I'm not there all the way yet, but hopefully by the end of the month, I'll be in business!  My shop name is, if you haven't guessed already, the Mad Hatter Knittery.  I almost named THIS blog that, but am kinda glad I didn't now.  Here's the story of the Etsy Journey.

Sister Ro recently became a jeweler for Premier Designs Jewelry, an AWESOME company with fabulous jewelry that, were I not on a budget, I would be addicted to.  For their hostesses (and for games at the jewelry parties) it is typical for the jeweler to give a gift.  Ro wanted to really customize hers and talked to me about commissioning some of my coasters.  I of course agreed!  She mentioned it to some of the other jewelers in her area and they all really loved the idea, which got me thinking hey!  I could be a Premier Designs Hostess Gift designer, how fun!  Well, from there, I mentioned that I'd been thinking about opening an Etsy store for my handmade items and Ro was super supportive, giving me all kinds of ideas and how much giving things away as gifts would help "get my name out".  So, I started to amass marketable items.  I am really, really looking forward to seeing how everything goes.  And a little nervous. =P 
So, that's the news right now, and why I've been a little absent. Hopefully, I am forgiven.
Love you, my supportive readers,
(and remember, Mad Hatter Knittery items make GREAT gifts! =P)
