I have been putting off officially carving out my little--very little--niche in blogland for two years now. It's not that I didn't want to. I thought about it all the time. I longed to be known for something--anything really. I had a moment when I thought that I might be almost famous when I gave The Nester one of my birds at Blissdom two years ago, and like a zillion people visited my blog when she featured my staircase. Okay, so it wasn't a zillion.
Well, it was obviously more of a moment for me than it was for her since she thought that my interesting friend Edie had made it for her.
Even before the little slip up by the darling Nester--who way overdid the apology--I had decided that, by golly, I was going to get that Etsy shop opened before the second anniversary of Blissdom.
And when all those Nester followers started contacting me for the bird pattern, I was ready. Well almost. Daughter Kelly and I have taken a crash course over there at Etsy and have been sending out patterns all day over at Will this fly?
You might be wondering about the name. I believe it was given to me by divine inspiration. Really. I come up with a lot of creative ideas, but have never been successful in marketing anything. So when I started making birds, and everyone kept saying that I could sell them, I wondered, Will this fly?
And I don't know yet.
We have the famous bird pattern for sale, and will be adding some completed birds within the next day or so.
And we are taking orders for our custom Bible or book covers. Thank you Nester for featuring me once again. I feel almost famous when you do that.
