Pretty Smelly

That is the perfect description for my new sachet--"Pretty Smelly" LOL, don't mind me, I'm just cracking myself up over here! ;oD It's made with some beautiful vintage lace, vintage velvet leaves, silk flowers, and that lovely vintage rhinestone button. It's filled with some really nice french lavender buds--(the "smelly" part!) It's listed in my Etsy shop.

I found this cute retro fabric with the dragonflies and daisies and just had to have it--isn't it fabulous? I've paired it with this aqua polka dot and made another 2008 planner cover with it. I really like these planners, but have yet to sell one--I wonder why? Even at the craft fair this weekend, soooo many people picked them up and oohed and aaahed over them, then they put them back down and went on. Weird. Is there something wrong with them that I don't see? Or maybe it's just too early for people to seriously think about 2008?? It's a mystery to me, LOL! (but what isn't? lol)

The fair was a BLAST! I had so much fun! I sometimes forget that I don't spend much time with actual flesh and bones people (besides my immediate family)--and it is so fun to actually get out and be with them once in a while! MY people--crafters, artists, seamstresses, and people who love all that stuff. I just enjoyed it so much. Yeah!
I've made up a few more of my little bird ornaments to list in my shop too--these look so cute hanging on the tree--and you don't have to put them away after Christmas either :-).

Well, I am going to go and read up some of my favorite blogs and see what you have all been up to!! HUGS!

I LOVE the retro dragonflies and all the rest of your new creations, am going to have to drop by your etsy store again to have a look!

Beautiful creations, as usual! I'd be in the market for the planner except that I already bought a leather bound one at TJMax a few weeks ago. Perhaps market them as stocking stuffers (maybe you have, I didn't look at the listing). Great little gift for teachers!!

Thanks for your kind words in Etsy and on my blog. I've been a little down lately regarding Etsy and my health and your words were like a big hug from a friend. :-)

Nicole said...

so it's good timing that i saw your little birdie last night, because otherwise, i wouldn't have noticed that it's on the etsy homepage this morning. hope you sell a million! ;-)

My speculation on the planner:

They love it--but already have a palm pilot or use MS outlook or something similar and don't need/want a paper planner.

They love the cover, but the inside style (the way the planner is arranged) doesn't suit the way they would use it.

Those are things I can be pretty picky about.

If the planners don't sell, would it be possible to take the covers off and put them on something else? Perhaps those thin photo albums or small journals?

I know what you mean. I get a lot of people picking up my monkeys at the market, and rarely sell them. Who knows? I'm glad you had a good time anyway, I too enjoy mingling with the real world.

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I noticed that cute little bird on the homepage this morning, and hearted you then. Then I found your blog in the forums later today ~ what a coincidence!!
I'll be adding you to my list of favourite blogs ~ and I might just be treating myself to a cute little bird ornament soon (not that I can afford it right now! :S)!

Mrs. Kwitty, I keep running into you in other's blog comments... I'm so embarrassed that it's taken me this long to find your blog. I love it! :)

Such sweet combinations and creations.
Idea: would the planner covers fit a checkbook? Just a thought.
