We picked up a few $5 DVDs from Wal-Mart the other day and had movie night. One of the movies was Miss Congeniality. I had not seen that movie before but heard great reviews. My review of the movie is that we were rolling on the floor in laughter. Sandra Bullock is a real hotty, for sure.
I've been working on the Etsy store this week. The three pink handkerchiefs have been listed. I need to list something tomorrow but not sure what it will be at this time. Going through a bunch of project ideas, I came across the luggage tags. I made a couple. They were cute and easy to make. I posted pictures on Facebook and people actually commented that they like them. Well, what kind of price tag should I put on them? I initially put $5, personalized $10. George said that was way too high. So, we did some research. OMG, luggage tags are expensive, especially embroidered ones. I sticking with the $5, personalized $10. They really are a good idea because so many people travel, especially by plane, and luggage gets lost. That's not the only use, though. You could wear them on a lanyard if you needed your name shown, or on your purse, or at school on your backpack, or brief case. Ever think about putting a name tag on your bicycle, baby stroller, or dog crate? We could even make smaller ones for your dog's collar. I may put some on Etsy.
We had an order for a set of pillowcases with LU in script in the middle and a large fleur de lis on either side. These turned out beautifully. When I posted the photos on Facebook, I was asked how much they are. They are $35 for a set. I cannot do NFL team logos or any other licensed logo. Fleur de lis are not a logo. I was asked to do a set with the Denver Broncos -- I cannot do that. What I can do is embroider horse designs. Get the picture:>)
I was going through some of my patterns and came across my pattern for ladies gloves. I used to love to make gloves. So, I've started making a pair. Glove making takes awhile and has a lot of hand stitching involed and little, teeny tiny pieces. When I'm finished, I post a photograph -- if they look good.
Saturday is the big Splash party and we have been gearing up all week. Meeting tomorrow.
