I haven’t posted any of my apron projects for a couple of months..I took a bit of time off from sewing, sometimes I just need to get away from whatever I am working on briefly.

I’ve been thinking for a few months about opening a shop on ETSY.   Part of the reason I have hesitated is open one as of yet is due to my insecurity.  Are my products good enough?  Will anyone even want to purchase any of my items?  Well..if I don’t try I will never know..So plan to open a shop this weekend when I have time to sit down and just DO IT.  As always, if you see an item here that you MUST  have, just let me know.  My email is  Zip me a note and I will get it sent off to you!

Here are a few of my newest creations!  Hostess aprons for summer!  Each is handcrafted with love..





Hostess apron prices are $24.95 plus $5.00 priority mail shipping..these are not mass produced, are made with love, and hopefully each one will find a loving home!








How about a coffee cozy?  Replace those flimsy cardboard cozies that you get at your fave coffee shop with one of these..they are recyclable and hand washable if you spill on them..


These sell for $4.95 each, shipping is $1.00…For each apron purchase, I will giveaway a coffee cozy as as a thank you..


Thanks for looking!


  1. Love your blog design.....Finally a few hours to blog hop and catch up on some of my favorite blogs. Have a great weekend

  2. Hi! Your aprons are FABULOUS! If I wasn't currently unemployed, I would be grabbing up the Parisian hostess apron!! It is so cute!! I would say open an ETSY account now...I have noticed it seems like sales really go up as the holiday nears. I have also noticed a lot of bloggers advertise their ETSY shops on their blogs, which keep it in the "fore front"!!

  3. Hi Barb,
    I understand a break from creating at times. It does help to refresh our outlook.
    I love your aprons and the variety you have designed.
    Yes, I encourage you to open an etsy boutique. Now is a good time to have a few months ahead of you before the Christmas selling season hits. This gives you some space to get noticed. Your designs are beautiful and etsy makes it so easy to list, sell and have a fabulous shop. You will love it!

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Always so great to see you.
    Let us know if you open your shoppe. It only takes a few minutes and you'll be on your way!
