I know I started this blog back in January because I wasn't feeling the wordpress format. Then I thought about for a few days, and then made the switch back to wordpress. But now, ten months later, I am finding myself crawling back to this one. I got tired of some of my posts on wordpress being eaten up, never to be seen again, never posted, or whatever else can go wrong in blog posting land.
So here I am. Again. Crawling back and begging my sorry and pitiful looking blog for forgiveness.
So in an effort to make a fresh start, I will leave you with this:
I am working on a ton of new bags, in addition to the others that I already had done. I am waiting to list them, that way I can do them all at once. I gladly ship to APO and FPO addresses.
I have one super cute diaper bag that is about halfway done. A bunch of Lauren's will be making their way to the shop, and a handful of embellished prefolds will be listed too. I haven't decided if I want to do any more "DUOS", or a bag and prefold combo.
I don't even know if I want to keep doing the prefolds since I can't sell them online. I have noticed that people are more willing to pay more money for the Gerber birdseye prefolds that pill like crazy and look horrible after they are washed. People seem to not even bat an eye at my non-Gerber Chinese bleached prefolds that I have already prepped for them. Prepping takes a lot of time: at least 4-6 washes to get the twill to shrink up. Can you imagine what a prefold would look like if I had embellished it with the fabric, sent it off to someone to use, and then they washed it to use, only to find that the prefold shrunk several INCHES?
But if people prefer to buy the more expensive Gerber prefolds, then they can do that. All I will say is that the quality is not there like there is Chinese or Indian diaper service quality(DSQ) prefolds.
I am working on a style and size similar to the Lauren for the Holidays. Fun and funky Christmas fabrics will be used. I am going to be using some for gift and goody bags for family members.
And a word of note:
I still am using my "old" labels with just the "Cherry Blossoms by melanie" on them. I am almost out of them, and then I can reorder some new labels with the '29' in them. YAY!
Hopefully that is all for tonight. I will probably list a few things later this week, just so I can get some form of better organization going on. I don't want to get flooded with things to list, only to miss something.
Ooh! I almost forgot! I have some wool dryer balls that I am going to list too! They will be in sets of 3 or more. A set or two will have five or six.
Look at http://29cherryblossoms.etsy.com this Friday the 13th!
