Totally New Thursday Week 13

My totally new Thursday item this week, for one of my New Year's resolutions to add a new item to our Etsy shop every Thursday and then blog about it here, is a different color combination of an already listed item in our shop.

Ta da! Here they are! Butterflies! This is only the second set of these that have been made. Hopefully even more color combos are yet to come! Makes me think of spring! How about you?

Totally New Thursday Week 12

Well, my dear blog readers! Tis Thursday again and yay, I've got my totally new Thursday item for one of my New Year's resolutions listed and ready to blog about for you to read on this fine Thursday!

Hopefully this means I've got myself back on track with getting a new item listed every Thursday this year and then a blog written about that item the same day but alas, only time will tell.

This week my totally new Thursday item is once again not actually a new item. It is a hand towel but even though it isn't a new item it is however a new design AND a new way of making our hand towels.

Ta da! Check out our new hand towel! I've taken a plain white hand towel and sewn a strip of adorable froggie flannel fabric across the bottom. I then crocheted a top on with a coordinating spring green color. I have many other fabric designs I hope to make some day. I just LOVE how this one turned out! What do you think?

Totally New Thursday Week 11

Yes, I know. You are thinking, "Today isn't Thursday? It's Friday so why is this post titled Totally New Thursday Week 11?"

Well, I'll tell ya! It's because my Thursday this week just totally got away from me so I didn't get a new item listed yesterday or a new blog post written about that new item.

Alas, I have failed by one day on one of my 2013 New Year's resolutions. You know, the one where I list a new item in our Etsy shop every Thursday this year and then blog about it here for you to read about?

Sooooo.......since I didn't want to completely fail at the resolution, I decided to just do it a day later. Better late than not at all, right?

This week my new item is a new hand towel design. So, not a fully new item but new designs count as new items, wouldn't ya think?

Here's what I've listed. Something that is perfect for Easter which will be here before we know it!

My Twentieth Featured Etsian

Since this past Friday was the first Friday of March, that meant that in order to continue keeping up with one of my 2013 New Year's resolutions, I went shopping on Etsy!

This particular resolution actually has two parts. First to shop on the first Friday of every month this year, and second, to blog about my purchase once I've received it in the mail.

The shop I chose to make a purchase from is a shop that I have purchased from before but I don't think I've ever blogged about it. Clearly I was pleased with my items since I went back and shopped from this same shop again!

I'm three for three when it comes to picking shops this year that have quick shipping! Once again, I made my purchase on a Friday and had my package the following Monday!

The spotlight for this blog post is shining upon the Etsy shop DolphinBlue found here. In this shop you will find handmade fabric tissue holders. They make great gifts and they go anywhere you would need a tissue.

As you can see in the picture, I purchased quite a few of these wonderful tissue holders! There are MANY designs to choose from. They are listed at a very affordable price so that is why at $.99 each and $.50 each for shipping, I couldn't get just one!  I bought six of them!

Go on over to DolphinBlue, my twentieth featured Etsian, and see which tissue holders you might just have to have! They not only would work for yourself but would also make for great Easter basket items and perfect stocking stuffers!

Do come back and share which designs you buy if you decide to shop!

Totally New Thursday Week 10

Alrighty! So this year I made two New Year's resolutions. Yay! 10 weeks into the new year and so far so good on me keeping up with them!

One of my resolutions was to list a new item in our Etsy shop every Thursday and then blog about that item here on my blog for you to read about.

Well, today is Thursday so I'd like to introduce you to our newest item listed! Ta da! Check out our rainbow set of crocheted butterfly face scrubbies! Pretty colorful, huh?

If you like these, then be sure to check in on our shop from time to time as I have another set in the making that is rainbow set as well only it is a bit different. I'll be getting the other set listed as soon as they are finished.

And that my dear blog readers is your totally new Thursday item for this week! What did you think?

What's That Smell?

Tonight I was sitting on the loveseat working online. In the background it was pretty quiet. There was no tv on, no music playing, no sound coming from the hubby's computer, and best of all, no children disagreeing over anything.

The only sound in the background was the sound of our two children playing nicely together in our son's room. Hooray! They were getting along, for the moment anyway.

Then, as I'm listening to them, I hear our son ask our daughter, "What's that smell?" To which she replies, "Me." He then blurts out, "Ewww, gross!"

It was one of those moments that just made hubby and I giggle out loud.
