Shop Talk

I am making some major changes in my etsy shop, FourDogDay! I am really excited about it too. Part of the reason is that I am going to be selling my clocks and cake stands in the consignment shop in Chicago. I don't want to be selling the same thing in my shop.

As things in my shop have expired I have not been renewing them, unless it is something I plan to keep making. That means my shop is getting smaller, and smaller and smaller. The neat thing is that now my shop is going to have a "look". It's going to be mostly fabric items and you know how much I love fabric!

I'll be taking some things to Chicago on the 24th when we go downtown for our next family get together. Tresa only lives about 20 minutes from the consignment shop. I thought that would be a great time to meet the owners and drop off what I hope are the first of many, many items.

So, as FourDogDay gets smaller in preparation for growth, I am throwing around ideas of what else I will be adding to the shop and I have some awesome ideas. As soon as I have some of them completed, I will show you. I also have some neat ideas for the consignment shop, but I am still hunting for some of the materials I need.

Spring is just such a wonderful time of renewal and growth, not only outside, but in my shop and in my heart as well. I just love spring.

Topic change: Our grandchild to be....according to yesterday's e-mail update is now 4.5 inches from head to butt....about the size of an avocado. He/she is growing toenails and his/her little heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood a day. Is that not amazing? Tresa can feel the little guy/girl moving every day now. That was the most awesome part of being pregnant for me. Next month we might just know if it is a boy or a girl and that's pretty exciting too.

Be sure to do something really nice for yourself today....like take a walk! Chat with you soon!

I can attest to the quality workmanship you do. I received the baseball camera case and it's top notch and a perfect fit. To anyone reading this comment....don't hesitate to order from Kathy.

Very nice! I agree - there may be some diaper bags in your future. I hope to find out today if my grandchild-to-be is a boy or girl.

How exciting that you're going to be a grandparent! A new life is the best gift of all....

Exciting about the baby!!

It is fun to get your shop all how you want it. I feel like my Cut N Glue shop is a little messy but right now I am so focused on my new shop that I am really kind of ignoring C&G anyway.

I can not wait to see all of the cute things you are dreaming up!
