Got a New Item in the Works

I’m half way finished with a new item, one of which, will be included in my handmade product offerings at my ArtFire studio.

I can’t say just yet how my inspiration for making this item came about because it will spoil a surprise for someone.  At this point, the person for whom this item was originally destined, hasn’t seen the item and doesn’t have a clue.  I think it will be very much admired because the design is so that person.  Until one is given as a gift, I have to keep the inspiration story under wraps!

I will post it when it’s completed but I’m in a quandry as to what this item should be called.  Is it a tote, a laundry bag, Grammies Toy Bag, a duffle, a carryall, a beach bag?  Just not sure which will best describe it for the best search engine results.  I wish it were finished so I could post a picture, but it’s not.  As you can tell I’m a little anxious to reveal the item.  When finished and posted, I would appreciate any thoughts about the best name for this item.

Here is a sneak peek at the emerald green polka dotted fabric:

Blue Floral Floor Length Curtains

CurtainBlue3My newest window treatment design is a bright blue floral and shows off a pretty feminine style.  This handmade floor length set is 54″ x 85″ and is two panels with a 2″ pocket for a larger sized rod.  The three inch hem gives a professional look.  This is new cotton fabric from the 1998 Summer Hill Ltd home décor line.   Check out all the details about this new item at my studio on ArtFire .

Handmade Greeting Cards

Today my sister Lisa has joined me on my ArtFire Studio by posting her handmade card, one of many more to come. This teacup card is sooo adorable. She’s titled her section on my studio, Lisa’s Handmade Greetings. Her card is navy blue and white. It looks black in the pic. Please, please bear with us as we learn how to photograph effectively.

Wish I could post the pic here but this website is having issues and won’t let me put it up or add links back to my ArtFire Studio where you could view it. I have posted this issue in the support forum but received no response as of yet. I am not out of space as I checked that already.

Visit my ArtFire Studio at http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/Uniquelyhandmade to see Lisa’s Handmade Greetings and my UniquelyHandmade Linens. A GREAT BIG WELCOME TO LISA !!
