Submissions and pimping

Hey all!! So, whilst I work on my next two patterns, I’m going to contemplate some submission ideas for this cool calendar coming 2012:

An amigurumi calendar!!! AHHH!! ❤ squee. I lurv me some amigurumi, so you bet your buns I’ll be entering!! My mind is reeling with ideas by now too… o.O

I think I’ll probably start doing more amigurumi patterns and toys too, and possibly sell both online and at local crafty shows. Which leads me to say…

PLEASE CHECK OUT MY ETSY PAGE!!

this is a cute lil fuzzy bunny…that could be yours!

This is the pimping part of my post. haha. But, my blog devoted to my store has, sadly, not gotten much attention.

Totally check it out! I..er..don’t seem to update as often. But that will change. I’m going to be adding patterns there and more gift type items as we roll into pre-holiday season (urgh) so stay tuned!

I think I may submit patterns to mags and ezines as well. Maybe it’s pattern fever, but I’m finding it pretty darn fun.

Etsy/Hyena Cart account?

I’ve been seriously considering opening up an lil online store for my crafts..more so to support the habit but also to spread some green love ❤

I’ve done some digging around and Etsy and Hyena Cart have some big merits to themselves….and are the best sites I’ve found so far for fees, advertising and traffic. (Hyena Cart is specifically geared towards eco friendly family/handmade)

I may put up storefronts at both sites at first, to see where I garner the most traffic. I know I will also be doing the local farmer’s market this year as well!

As far as what I’ll be selling, well…I think green cleaning items like swiffer shrugs and reusable cleaning cloths will be big, as well as green baby/kids items! And yes there will be toys 😀 See my flick account to get an idea of the toys I create. I”ll try to post some pics of green things I’ve created as well 🙂

Input is always appreciated!
