A little intro -- I'm married to a wonderful man, and we have 4 boys together. The boys are 12, 10, 7, and almost-2. I've been lucky enough to stay home and raise my boys. On the side, I run The Lavender Lizard my Etsy shop where I sell crocheted accessories and headbands, apparel, cozies, scrubbies, handmade supplies and occassionally, something my boys have made.
I'm also a yarn freak, ummm, collector, and I rarely travel anywhere without my latest project.
I've just realized that yesterday (June 6) is my one year Etsyversary, although I didn't list anything until July 11. In that time, I have sold over 200 items, which amazes me. I've shipped orders to Canada on several occasions, one just this week! And I've shipped two orders to the UK -- very exciting! Last month I created a special order of tape measure cozies, shown below, for a sweet woman in California, who is taking them as gifts to 6 women in Vietnam and Bangladesh, who sew to support their families. How awesome is that!
I belong to Etsy Texas Crafters , a superior Street Team numbering over 300 members that focuses on supporting Texans and Etsy. My team job is creating Spotlight Treasuries every week to showcase other ETCers. I really enjoy checking out the new shops!
I also belong to the Military Brats at Etsy Street Team. (I really should do more to support the Brats!) They are a great group of folks, and it's fun to discover what places (and bases) we have in common.
I'll surely post more later -- new projects and features and what goes on in general when you have a house full of boys and yarn. Thanks for visiting!
