Giant Learning Curve

I'm trying really hard to get traffic to my blog, business to my Etsy site, all the while creating new and neat stuff for store inventory. There are sooo many options. The more I look, the more I realize I have so much to learn about all of this blog and ecommerce business. It is almost overwhelming and eventhough I have been computing for years, there is never a standstill in the learning curve of new technology. I imagine the best way to do it, is one small step at a time, a little everyday. One day I will look back and say, "Hey, I was 5o something, and I taught myself how to do that, and good for me." Hopefully all this struggle will pay off in ways I may not be able to conceive at the moment.

In the Heat of the Arizona Summer

Here are a few of the items I have added to my shop since I have blogged last.

It is hot this time of year in the Phoenix area. Temps are ranging from a mere 89 to about 113 degrees F. and the monsoon season has just begun. The last two nights it has rained and thundered and lightinged (is that really a word? LOL) and in the days, OMGosh, the humidity has been way up in the 35-40 percentile. This is a really good time to stay indoors, in the cool, cool air conditioning, and create! That is exactly what I have been doing: some creating, some brainstorming!
Coming up for the shop is a beautiful rose print and light blue denim tote with super retro trim, some new towels in morning glory blue with art deco roses and retro trim, wreaths for the autum season, plus a new wall hanging with a sewing room theme. I can't wait to finish up and get these super items in the store inventory. It's not too early to think about shopping for the holidays!

Autumn is just around the corner and here is the first of my autumn wreaths. The is a great way to welcome your fall guests. Hang it on your front door as a wonderful greeting or decorate inside doors or walls with this little cutie. Full details by clicking on the link above.

Spirit of the Zebra Wall Hanging

Inspired by the Serengeti Plains of Africa is a new wall hanging from Sew Sassy Creations called Spirit of the Zebra. I did this particular wall hanging because several of my friends have safari themed rooms. Patti has a Zebra themed bedroom, Judy and Ann both have Safari themed rooms in their homes. The next addition to this collecion is Spirit of the Elephant and will be offered soon.

Tropical Birds in Paradise

This is a beautifully detailed wall hanging of real life tropical birds. The first is a Toucan and the second is a Mexican Parrot. The embroidered birds are set on a background of tafeta material embroidered with delicate palms and accented with permanent water color. The inset of the birds is trimed with cording that matches the outer frame which is made of a tropical print in festive colors. Demensions and other information is available on my Etsy and also may be purchased directly from my site.

I was inspired to make this piece by looking at a picture of my hubby and myself all dressed up for a Hawaiian Party...too bad we were attending the party in Arizona and not Hawaii!
