I am pleased to announce that my knitting and crochet themed graphic designs are now available on Amazon! I’m stoked! I don’t know how hard their initial vetting process is, but, hey – I’m trying not to overthink that. I want to believe this is an achievement. LOL!
There are only two designs available right now, and I can upload only 10 designs a day. They do review the individual items carefully, because the first design I uploaded, I used the the phrase “guaranteed to bring a smile” in the description, and it was immediately denied. I fixed it up, and re-sent it, where it took about 12 hours for them to review and pass it.
If you feel you don’t have enough t-shirts that proclaim your crafting obsession, check out my store. The picture above is a link. If you’re not personally interested, but think someone else would be, please pass this info along!

If you read my blog with regularity, you know that I am caught in the machinations of trying to open a local yarn business. My biggest hurdle? Lack of confidence – and for once, it’s not a lack in myself. I did an exercise in Google maps a few weeks ago to help me get a grasp on where my customers would be, literally, in relation to the brick and mortar location. I was not impressed. I used zip code information and got the population from there. All in all, it was a dismal showing. Maybe that’s why there isn’t one in town already. I don’t know. With approximately 70% of the store fronts in town empty, it can be hard to justify opening a niche shop and making it work.
So…I’m juggling a little. Make that a lot. My internet savvy cousin, Nancy, told me to build an online presence first, then open the lys after you can make ends meet that way. Such pragmatism and great genes in one package! I feel like Veruca Salt from Roald Dahl’s creation “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and the subsequent movie “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” when she’s singing I want it now! https://youtu.be/2zcVnNwAHys
