Blog Changes & New Door Hanger Pillows

Hi Everyone! Well, as you can see, I've done some changes with my blog, and am using Bloggers new Template Disigner. I've been wanted to change over to a 3 column blog for quite a while, and today I have finally taken the plunge, so to speak. I'm pretty much happy with it.

I've been VERY busy in my sewing room these past few days, as you can see below the photos of what I have been working on. These are some pretty Door hanger Sachet Pillows, and I used different Images of pretty Victorian ladies on each one, with pretty rose prints, and lots of lovely embellishments.

This first one I just finished a few minutes ago, and haven't yet put it on Ebay, but keep an eye out for it as I will be listing sometime today with a BUY-IT-NOW price.



This one is now currently available, and you can click on the picture to the right on my sidebar to take you to that listing.



This lovely lady just sold earlier today, and will be going to a lovely lady in the United Kingdom. Gosh, my pillows get to travel all over the world, but not me :(

I love the new three-column blog. I thought about do ing that myself...but I'm not sure what I would use the extra sidebar for...May I ask what made you decide to change to a three-column blog and what are the advantages? I'm genuinely interested. The place where I got my free blog background from will be changing to a different site, so I have to change my blog background soon...maybe...like to morrow..I'm going to try and keep the same one, but I may change it..so I'm not sure what I'll do!!!
Oh, I was also curious about your experience selling items on Etsy. I knit...and I'd like to look into the possibilities of using that as a venue. What has been your experience working with etsy. You can leave a comment or my blog or send me a private email...whichever you prefer :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :) :)

p.s. Your blog still has a nice beautiful feel to it!!!! I love all the pinks :) :) :)

Hi Brenda,
I just love your pretty little door hangers, they are so sweet.

You put so much detail into your work and they are hard to resist.

Love your blog look too.

hugs

They are really beautiful!
Your blog looks better in 3 columns, I'm trying to do the same with mine.

I like the new look, and, as always, I LOVE your creations. Do you know Jill, Say It with Roses? I'm thinking the bottom gal is the image she uses for her button. SO lovely.

By the way, I know what you mean about your products traveling the globe, but not you. My husband and son have a small woodworking business with an Etsy store. Did you know people make their own yarn?!! Well, LOTS of people do that according to our drop spindle sales. We've sold to many European countries, Australia, and even Asia (Israel and, I think, Thailand). I guess we're not world-wide, in that we've missed the continents of Africa and South America. It really is fun, though, to see where your products are going.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs,
Patti

Hi Brenda! Love these pillows today!! Absolutely beautiful!.. and all the fancy trims (gasp!).. I've always been well stocked on beads, buttons, and all the fancy trims, but the years have finally caught up with me, and I found I had to go shopping for just a few the other day. I have to admit, I was fairly shocked to see the prices on some of them!!! I don't know if I'll find better deals on the internet or not, but it seems as though it may be worth the bother of looking into!.. It's wonderful to hear the success you're having in selling your pillows!! Little surprise.. You do beautiful work!.. Enjoy your evening! ~tina

Hi Brenda, I like the three column look. I changed mine over sometime ago. I had to get a new blog banner, because the ones I had were for a two column. I like your new look and the pillows are so pretty. Take care.
