Give away

Oh my goodness I had soooo much fun this week doing my first ever give away. It wasn't until after I drew names that I realized I hadn't promoted the give away in my etsy shop or on my blog. Ooops. I was totally surprised at how quickly people responded and were liking my page. Thank you so much to Lanikins, Spooky Pooky Creations, Lu&Ed and Daft Crafts for sending people my way. My little Hannah was a great helper. She enjoyed picking names out of t a hat for me. Here she is ready to start.

Ahhhhhhh! I love this guy. My family rarely goes to the theater. We have four kids and the prices are just way too much for all of us to go, so we were late jumping on the Despicable me bandwagon. Last fall we finally rented it on redbox and instantly fell in love with the minions! Of course being a plush maker my kids quickly insisted that I just had to try making some. So I did. My first attempt went really well and I actually ended up selling some to friends and then later in my etsy shop but I felt that he needed updating he is. So what do you think?

Things are really starting to progress here with my little business. I've had my first craft show, put items up for sale in two brick and mortar stores, got a mention in stuffed magazine, and hit 50 sales in my etsy shop.....all within the first 7 months of starting up. I'm so excited to see what the future holds for Heart Felt Design. For now here is a glimpse at what I have been up to this week.
