I have been trying to come up with a name for my blog so that I don’t have to come up with a creative name every time I post something as writing is not something I excel at. I wanted it to be related to our business name, Mountain Street Arts and yet be something catchy. So my new blog will be called “On the Street” as in Mountain Street.
My Irises are finally blooming. They are a little late this year but just as beautiful as always,
I started making a crocheted art piece which I am going to frame. I might develop this into a pattern to sell. It will work for either crochet or knitting. Pictures and pillows with writing on them have become quite popular in home decor. I personalized it with our last name and year we were married. I hope to finish it this week as our anniversary is at the end of the week.
I got this awesome dog collar from another Etsy seller in the mail this week. It’s too cute for words. The shop is Scruffytown Mutts. I love the name and if the name isn’t cute enough you need to check out the dog collars and leashes she makes. Jennifer is very accommodating and she makes the collars and matching leashes out of very bright whimsical fabrics some of which are dog themed like the fire hydrants, sheep dogs and my favorite, the dogs which remind me of her logo.
My dog is now the envy of the neighborhood dogs as he sports his new collar on our walks. Seriously if you are a dog lover or know someone who is you need to purchase one of these fun collars. The hardware is sturdy and they are very well made. Visit her Etsy store at scruffytownmutts.etsy.com
One of our customers shared a picture with us of how she uses the personalized labels she buys from us. I love the way she uses colorful coordinating threads that match her afghans. The name of her Etsy shop is GeoffreyAndFlop and it’s named after her 2 favorite childhood toys. She also makes toys and her story is heartwarming. Check out all of her wonderful handmade toys and afghans at GeoffreyAndFlop.etsy.com or visit her facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/GeoffreyandFlop. There are lots of tutorials to get you on your way to crocheting.
