Venturing into Etsy

I'm a knitter and I also tend to be kind of crafty in general, but I've always just made stuff and given it away. I don't normally keep the things I make, and when I do give things away everyone tells me I should sell them. I've always thought about it, but it's never something I've seriously considered. But being unemployed again I decided I needed to make some extra money. So over the last few weeks I've been scouring Etsy. I'd think of something I could make and then search Etsy to see if it's already been done. And until yesterday every idea I'd had someone else has already done it. And being a that my associates degree is in business I know that in order to sell something there has to be a need for it, and it has to be somehow different - added value - to what's already for sale. So last night I finally came up with an idea that I didn't see anywhere on Etsy - mosaic bookends! So I sat down and here's what I came up with:

I thought the idea of using a "book" as a bookend was a neat idea. I think it came out pretty awesome too! I just love the way it looks.

So what do you think of it? Let me know I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Ripped coupon :-(

I got a sample of Gud in the mail the other day. I'd never heard of it before, but it's from Burt's Bees and everything I've tried of theirs I LOVE! So when it came in the mail I was kind of excited to try it.

As I was opening the envelope the coupon ripped :-(

And it ripped right along the bar code! I think it was sealed with rubber "super" cement...

But anyway I loved the sample. I got a sample of the body lotion in the Floral Cherrynova. It smells amazing and after I used it my skin was so soft. It really is a great product. I will be picking more of this up, but having the coupon would have helped... Oh well it's only one coupon, life will go on. I'm just kind of bummed about it.

Just wanted to share the awesomeness that is my day sometimes. Also I had to let everyone know how great this stuff is!

You can get more info about Gud on their website or like them on Facebook to get your free sample (just be careful opening it!!!).
