A Note from SaraLu25 on etsy

I got a wonderful note from one of my etsy customers, SaraLu25, last week. It really made me feel good about my work. SaraLu25 definitely lifted my spirit and renew my enthusiasm to keep creating and selling on etsy. Thank you so very much Sara. You have no idea what your note meant to me. xoxo

Below is the note from SaraLu25 on etsy.

Thought you'd be interested in the following: I wore the lace leaf scarflette today (black)...had it on over a nice pink cashmere turtleneck sweater (lightweight) but with a black jacket (it is cold here!) Well, everywhere I went (I had some errands to do) someone said something about the scarflette (and I did not draw attention to it.) I had to return some pillow shams to Anthropologie and the woman who waited on me said, "I love your scarf--is it crocheted? Where did you get it?" I told her and she said she'd have to check out Etsy. Then I went to Brighton to return some items for my son's girlfriend. There, two saleswomen commented on the scarf and again, asked where I got it. Going back to my car, I went through Saks and stopped at the Bobbi Brown counter to get some concealer. Again, "I love the scarf. Is that crocheted? Where did you find that?"

So, just thought you'd like to know the sensation your scarf caused wherever I went today:)Perfect weight and adds an interesting touch to what I had on.

Again, thanks!

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

I got to the front page on 01-2-09! :-D

I stumbled upon the screen shot from the flickr etsyfrontpage group. This treasury was curated by poshpretties and uploaded to flickr etsy frontpager treasury screenshots (pool) group by theeye formerly LN♥ THANKS, poshpretties and theeye formerly LN♥! It was a very nice surprise. Poshpretties put together a great combination that really works. Ok, so I'm bit partial. But, seriously this really is a good looking treasury.

To make the day even better, this morning I scored a treasury west and was featured in two treasury. Yeah...

More Etsy Treasury featured my item

Here are some Etsy Treasury featured some of my work.

Here are some of the Etsy Treasury I made.

Happy New Year 2009

So much has been going on in my little world. The hectic holidays season is gone and I'm still trying to get back to normal. Thank you to all my customers who helped made my holidays season a busy productive and happy one. All of you have helped me feel more confident and excited and wanting to keep creating fun interesting work. Thank you for giving me a great holidays.

My new shop at is officially up. I also have another store at I'm not very active in the new 2 stores but plan to be.

I've also discovered that joining flickr groups is a lot of fun. I've joined 67 groups so far. It's amazing how there's another sub culture that I'm slowly discovering and loving every minute of it. I made some new friends and looking forward to making more. There're so much creativity out there.

I've also discovered how to make treasury on etsy and became addicted for a few days. It's just so much fun. I've posted the ones I made and some of the ones featured my items on my flickr photostream. I've also upload a lot of photos of my projects on flickr as well. Please check them out when you have a chance. I'd love any comment you can give me.

I've joined a few of Etsy street teams, etsyFAST team, etsyhookers team, teametsytx and teametsyaustin. These are communities of great people that are very kind. I'd like to be active and contribute as much as I can. I don't know if that will be enough. Working my day job and come home to work on my projects have been keeping my schedule pretty full. But, I am going to do my best to be a good team member.

I am now in my designing mode. The gears in my brain are turning furiously.
Hopefully I'll be able to make some of my ideas tangible and post the item on my etsy store and flickr photostream.

Hope you all had a great holidays season and have a great 2009. I know I'm planning on having a great one.

Cheers to all,
