Etsy Shop is Live!

After getting over some nervousness about opening my Etsy shop, I hovered over the publish button, closed my eyes, and clicked it. My shop is finally open! It was definitely a long process - taking photos, writing out descriptions, and figuring out how much to charge. Phew, exhausting! I'm starting out small with just 22 items. More items are in the making :)

I'm actually really excited I have my very own Etsy shop! What was I so nervous about? The hard part is over, and now I can't wait to get orders. I love making custom items so I'm hoping for lots of those.

My top two favorite items in my shop --

Do you have an Etsy shop? Were you nervous/excited?

I Grew a Beard!

Tonight is the start of playoff hockey. My team the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. my home team the Philadelphia Flyers. Since I don't have man-mones to grow a beard, I decided to knit one to wear to the games. Such a simple pattern. I used bulky weight yarn, size 10 needles, and used seed stitch throughout. I'll post the pattern here soon.

If you know a guy who grows a beard, definitely direct him to the Beard-a-thon website to raise money for charity:

Let's go Pens!
~Philly always close to my heart~
