So I've finally done it. I have found my craft. And you get to help me with it and get a something in return.
I've spent years doing little crafts here and there. I've painted canvasses. I've made diaper cakes. I've made tutus and button letters, ribbon wreaths, fabric circles. I've thought about starting an etsy shop or maybe going to craft shows with these things but have never done it.
This week, I found the craft that inspires me the most (and what I think is the most marketable should I decide to sell it.)
It started with this:
I found it on Pinterest a couple months ago and thought "I could totally do that." I pinned it and promptly forgot about it.
Then my sister said something about making shirts for our girls for Thanksgiving. I remembered the Christmas tree shirt and thought, "I bet there is something like that for Thanksgiving." A quick trip around Pinterest and I found it. I modified it a bit and made this over the weekend:
I put a picture up on Facebook and within 24 hours, people were asking me to make shirts for their kids and offering to pay me for them. It wasn't my intention but I was inspired. This is my craft. I can do this. In my mind, I've already designed a shirt with a sun, one with a flower, one with a birthday cake, and one with fireworks.
All of this has inspired my 2012 goal. Start my own etsy shop. Go to at least one craft show.
Here is where you come in. Leave a comment below. You can tell me your favorite whimsical word (I'm trying to come up with a name for all of this) or maybe something that you think would be cute for a t-shirt. I'm working mainly with ribbons and buttons with some fabric pieces.
I will randomly pick a winner. The winner will get two shirts. You can pick from any of the designs I have mentioned. Comments will be accepted until noon on Saturday, Nov. 12. If you win, all I ask in return is that you let me know how the shirt holds up and any suggestions that you have.
