Busily Preparing

Okay, I've never been great at keeping a secret if it's something fun and exciting. Every Christmas, my husband receives his presents in November because I just can't wait to let him see what I found for him this year.

I've been busily preparing ideas and getting ready to open a brand new etsy shop called, Pocketful of Pinwheels. The logo is set, thanks to my awesome graphic designer friend, Mandy Freshour. Here is what she created for me:

Don't get too excited just yet ;) The shop is still empty as I prepare my first batch of items to list. You're welcome to visit the shop and see the logo! :)

I plan to be ready for business next week. You'll find "heirlooms for the modern family"... pieces to decorate your nursery or home...and yes, the sewing machine drawings will be there too! Thank you all for your sweet sweet comments about the swap piece.

In the meantime, here is a glimpse of something I've been working on this week...
