New Etsy Items, New Projects!

Hi everyone! How have you been? I'm happy to report that I have been extremely busy in my freelancing work and adding a few more items to our Etsy store. That's why I have been away for so long! It's hard to believe that my last post was nearly three months ago.

If you get time, drop by Mom and Pop Craft at the following link and see all the new fall and Christmas items we've added: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MomandPopCraft. Use coupon code 15PERCENT to receive 15% off your purchase. If you leave 5 star feedback after your first purchase, we'll upgrade that to a 25% off coupon you can use on ALL future purchases from our Etsy store.

Below are a few craft items I have bought recently and one of the four projects I have been working on as I have an hour or two to spare here and there.

New quilt patterns from the local quilt shop

New fabric from that same quilt shop

More fabric from that quilt shop

Buttons from the JoAnn's store that opened in June!

I painted the barn, surrounding greenery and part of the tractor a couple of years ago. I painted the sky, deer and overhanging branches above the deer over the last month.
Thanks for dropping by today!
Have a nice day!

Project Updates for June 13, 2017

I finished a few more flowers on my Mason/Ball Jar cross stitch project. Only three jars of flowers to go. It took me about a month to finish the two on the far right, so I think I'll put that project away for a while and come back to it in a month or so after I work on something else.

I also bought the Garden Snails quilt pattern below a couple of months ago. It is so cute! So, hopefully, I can start a quilt top or two from that pattern soon.
Over the course of the next month, I really need to work on my quilt with the homespun Christmas trees on the front. I have fallen way behind on that due to working on other craft projects, an increase in Upwork work, cleaning out closets, listing and relisting Etsy items (198 right now and more to add) and having three cold viruses already this year. How are your craft projects coming along?
Thanks for dropping by today.

Have a nice day!

Finished Items Priced Below Cost on Etsy!

I have finally relisted some finished items that did not sale the first time I listed them. You're going to think I'm out of my mind, but I have greatly reduced the prices on these finished items so that they are below the cost of the supplies I used to make them in hopes of giving them a new home as soon as possible.

Again, Etsy doesn't provide a way to combine shipping so let us know when you want to purchase multiple items (via Etsy messaging) so we can combine shipping for you.

Use promotion code 15PERCENT at checkout to save on your first purchase from our Etsy store. We accept Paypal payments as well as credit and debit card payments. After your first purchase, if you will leave 5 star feedback for us and tell us via Etsy messaging that you have done so, we will give you a 25% off code to use on all future purchases!

Below are the pictures of items for sale and the links to those reduced price listings:

Finished log cabin print and flowers Out N About Tote bag was $27. Now, ONLY $9.95!

Finished Pink Paisley and Flowers Out N About Tote bag was $25. Now, ONLY $9.95!

Hurry before I change my mind!

Have a nice day!

Fall Fabric Yo-Yos for Sale on Etsy

I'm so happy you could drop by this morning.

These items are available on Etsy. If you have some yo-yo projects to do but don't have time to make the yo-yos, I will be listing many more yo-yos as time goes by. We will combine shipping on any of our listings. Just contact us through Etsy to let us know which listings you want to combine. Please use the exact titles of the listings so we can combine shipping for the correct listings. Sorry about that but in order to allow Etsy to figure the exact shipping, there is no combined shipping option available. But if you contact us through Etsy, we can figure the shipping for you. If accepted, one of the listings can be edited to reflect the items you want with the combined shipping rate we agreed to. ; )

40 yo-yos on Etsy for $6.95 plus shipping:

60 yo-yos on Etsy for $8.95 plus shipping:

Newest Projects! March 28, 2017

Oh my goodness! I have been having a blast cutting circles for yo-yos with my new circle cutter hubby bought me and cutting squares. I'm trying to downsize some old fabric stash. Here are some quick pics I took. I'll have links to these new items as soon as I get better images and all my detailed instructions to list these on Etsy.

These embroidered pieces in the first four images were wrapped up in a piece of fabric. I decided I didn't like the fabric and was getting ready to toss it when I decided to unwrap it. I had completely forgotten about buying these several years ago off of Ebay - probably about 10 years ago. A few of them in the fourth picture still need to be embroidered. So, I'll do that eventually. But you can see these appear to be very old by the stains on them. I can't tell if the flowers were traced on with a pen or if they were iron-on images.

Below is my new circle cutter! Yay! That really cuts down on the time it takes to cut circles for yo-yos.

Some circles and squares I've been cutting.

A few yo-yos I've made from these circles I've been cutting.

As you may remember my telling you a while back, I'm cleaning out closets too. The closet in the craft room is the last closet left. I hope to start working in there this week. Then, I'll be able to list and relist some other items on Etsy as I find those in that closet. I'm going to list everything as low as possible. So, watch for those coming features!

Thanks for dropping by today.

Have a nice day!
