I usually don’t write 2 posts in one day but this is exciting — I finally set up my very own Etsy shop!!! :D :D :D
I have been wanting to set up a shop since I first saw it in 2006! My friends have also been urging me whenever they request Christmas orders of crocheted magnets and pins (and by “they,” I mean Kitty. Wouldn’t have been able to do this without your long‐time support and encouragement, friend!).
And so that’s why I changed the header! Just wanted it to reflect more of what I do and so it would match the shop banner. I really do like watercolour but I think I like crocheting plushes more :P
Setting up the shop actually took much longer than I thought — lots to think about in terms of policies and shipping and stuff. I’m kind of nervous about it… will test it out to see how it goes!
So! I put up some Monstermallow pins. The one above is one of them. I was so tempted to keep one for myself… but I guess I’ll just make another one later, so the shop is well‐stocked!
And here are the other plushes in the shop! They’re ideas that I’ve been waiting to test out, like the All‐Day Dim Sum.
I thought I must make the most popular item from my previous designs (and by most popular I mean my friend Kitty’s ordered it two years in a row) — the bok choy! For the shop I’ve made it into a set with another leafy Chinese vegetable, the choy sum.
Mike is again a great help in setting up the shop. He set up the photo‐shoot and took all the awesome‐looking photos with his super camera!
I hope you’ll pay the shop a visit! :D
