Front page of Etsy!

My pillow was featured on the front page of Etsy today. I’ve hit a milestone and am drunk on page views and favorites 🙂 Celebrate with me by doing some jazz hands and smiling your biggest smile! And maybe throw in a maniacal laugh or two 🙂

Etsy Shop launched!

On August 31, I officially launched my Etsy shop, January Sun Yarnworks. I initially hoped to start this business in spring 2010, when Benjamin was only a few months old. But I didn’t have the time (or enough sleep at night!) to make it a reality. All of the other details–a name, packaging, etc…–felt overwhelming.

Until this past spring, when my friend Meagan C. expressed interest in selling her hand-sewn items at a craft fair. I thought, Well, I could split the booth with her and see how it goes. She liked the idea and I’ve been knitting and crocheting away ever since! I’m energized by the Etsy shop and excited to see how the logistics of the craft fair work out 🙂
