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
