Today I was looking at my website and decided i wanted to spruce up the welcoming page a bit.
I drafted out several versions of a welcoming paragraph but got one big hole in them all. Here is a draft version:
I’m STEFFI and I’m a WEB DEVELOPER and a SOMETHING??. Thanks for visiting my site, I have an online portfoilo for my web development work and an online store that sells my handmade creations. I hope you REALLY ENJOY looking at MY WORK as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
But really what is my something? What is the title for the work I do in sewing toys and gifts from felt and fabric? I searched the web all morning trying to find a job title for it but nothing. There are lots of people out there who do similar work to me but none of them seem to refer to their work with a title.
I am not a seamstress, I am not a artist, I am not a tailor, I am maybe a toy maker but that doesn’t cover everything, I am maybe a felt artist but I also use fabric, I am a crafter but its too vague again, and then I am just plain out of ideas!
Yesterday I had a very important meeting for a new website project. Because it was such an important meeting I made myself promise not to do any sewing over the weekend so I could get everything ready for the meeting. It was very difficult, especially in the evening when I was relaxing to not just pick up my sewing things but I managed it! And the real bonus is how well my meeting went.
Because I haven’t done much but prep for the meeting for the last few days I have quite a to do list for this week.
- Update the website for boekhandel barth children’s week competition. The winners have been announced so I have to put their drawings onto the site!
- Finish my wholesale Christmas decoration flyer and send it out to local companies.
- List more Christmas decorations on my online shop!
- List some more items on Etsy
- Get some chocolates in ready for halloween!!
And as on every weekly to do list restock my shop!
When I finish my chirstmas decoration flyer I will post pictures here of my them.
After finishing the Buzz Lightyear cushion I was asked to make another one with Thomas the Tank on it. Here is the finished cushion.
It turned out just as lovely as the Buzz one, I hope the little boy receiving it loves it too!! 🙂
Here is the picture of the 3 balls I have made so far. Chick, kitty and piggy!! I am trying to decide what other animals to make and also trying to get my ball making template perfect (I had to redo some seams because they were bumpy).
Today I finished a very special cushion cover. It took me about 5 hours to make the templates, sew it all together and add the detail stitching. I hope the little boy who receives this love it 🙂
I will post over the weekend pictures of the Animal balls, I got side tracked with this cushion!
