Updates, Irons, and Additions
Last night I went to the store. To buy a new iron. The one I have now, is a pain in the you know what. Squirts water everywhere. Has a serious leaking problem. I get to the Target. There are 20 irons to choose from. OH THE CHOICES! I wish I had been able to do some research and comparisons while I was there. That would have been helpful. But instead I just picked each one up, played with all the buttons, felt the weightiness of each, about 57 times. I walked away with this one. I quite like the pink. It's non-drip, and the water tank is visible so I can see how much water is in it, and it's got cool squirt and steam buttons on the top! But that's not the coolest part. It has a retractable cord that gets stored INSIDE the iron!! no more wrapping the cord around the iron just have it fall off by the time I get it stored away! PERFECT! I needed to buy the iron because yesterday a large box arrived on my doorstep. It had to weigh 20 lbs. I opened it to find 9 new totes, and 15 new aprons from my Momma. A bit wrinkly, hence the need for the iron.
I have to say, my Mom has really outdone herself. I can tell she's really enjoying herself because the pieces have little unique bits of whimsy that she's included in each one. She's playing around with buttons, styles, fabrics, pocket shape, pocket placement, stitching, snaps. Also, she created her own little tags that has her shop name and web address on them, they attach to each piece with coordinating fabric ties. GENIUS!
So I've got my work cut out for me. This is why I'm taking a bit of a break with jewelry this week. I have to photograph all of Mom's stuff and list each one on Etsy. But I do have to get into the studio at some point to create the 3 pair of giveaway earrings before Friday. If you have any preferences to earring styles, leave a comment on this post please!! Update: New items added to my shop last night. Okay, not really new. You may have seen them before. But not they are in the shop and they have all been discounted for my sale. :)
