When I first wanted a logo, I knew what I had in mind. But things fell through (several times) and then it hit me.... I crochet dolls in the likeness of people so why not make my own?!
That's just what I did. It was quite interesting to make a doll that looks like "me". I named her Meecy because that's what my 3 year old grandson calls me.
|See her nose ring and glasses?|
|An actual pair of earrings.|
|When I do events I wear an apron|
|Rubber bands helps her to hold onto the box of yarn|
|The apron has pockets|
|The apron is removable|
|Close up of the apron. |
|I found this mini hat box and painted the dots so it matches the hatbox that I transport yarn in.|
Yes, those are real balls of yarn.
Oh, and I am officially a business owner! I am a real EIN (employer identification number), TIN (tax identification number), LOC (location number) having business. I also have a business bank account.
I've opened shops on Etsy and Scott's Marketplace. I'll be working on those slowly. Notice the link to my Etsy shop to the right->
I'm feeling excited about everything. I'll still take things slowly and am happy that I was able to take time off from filling orders to work on these things. It's let me re-focus and re-energize.
I have some other things in the works. It seems like I get a new idea everyday. The best part... not having to ask for permission to do the things that I want to do. I'm the boss :)
I've also been doing some major de-cluttering. I'm sure that the things that I'm donating will bring joy to others. I'm loving all the space that I now have, again.
UPDATE: I know that the doll that I donated to the Avon Outdoor Learning Center online auction was bought but I'm not sure about the birdhouse that I donated to Partners in Housing Indy. Silent auctions are sooo very different nowadays. It's all done on a mobile device and I didn't get set up to follow the bids. I'm hoping that "Not For Birds" went to a good home.
I'm looking forward to taking orders again. I have some flowers to crochet to deliver on Saturday, one of my daughters has asked for some special crocheted dolls, I'm going to knit 2 surprise gifts for my mother and I will probably participate in an upcoming art show.
And the de-cluttering will continue. I have no idea why I was holding onto some of these things. But they are moving to new places and people so that new things can come into my life.
