I've been searching, and searching for an owl pattern, and I have finally found one. These owls are so darn cute. I had to stop myself from making a whole bunch! Actually as I'm typing this blog post, I'm thinking I should make some more of these little guys to have a nice stock pile for Christmas. Or make them into Christmas ornaments CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!!!
I have 4 colors right now, and eventually I would like to have more colors. But right now I'm testing them out to see how well they sell. So far I've sold 2.
This summer has been really odd. Last summer it was in the 90's and 100's for weeks on end. Now it's barely making it to the 70's. I'm not complaining though. This cooler weather is putting me in the mood for sweaters, hot cocoa, and cuddling on the couch with a blanket. Oh.... and seasonal coffee creamers. I started drinking coffee again after I was done breastfeeding. I have missed coffee so much. I have drank it in the past, but it made my stomach hurt. I have to limit myself to only 12 ounces a day. That's all my stomach can handle. It's my special treat. I'm looking forward to Coffee-Mate seasonal creamers. * Sugar Cookie * Pumpkin Spice * Pecan Praline Just to name a few.

After about 3 weeks without selling anything, I sold one of my coffee cup cozies last night! Hooray! Can we keep the sales coming? That's way to long to not sell anything. Let's not repeat that. So I'm 79 sales away from 1,000! There are 5 months left in the year. (Wait... It's August already? Crap...) So that means... *doing some calculating.* I have to sell at least 16 items per month to make my goal. Ooooo.... that makes me nervous. I had a really good month last December, I believe I sold 60 items. But I have no idea how this year will go. The goal looks achievable, but I think it's going to be close. Here is a photo of one of my coffee cup cozies:
You can find this one, and the rest of the cozy collection here in my etsy shop.
