The creation of custom hang tags...
It took a few tries but I think I am finally happy with the way my logos and hang tags came out for my Etsy products. I have been trying to keep my costs down so I decided that I would print my own tags rather than having them printed by some other company. So some fancy paper from the office supply store and a colored ink cartridge for my printer and voila!

And of course, the inspiration for the shop name and logo... the fur face himself, Boots!
To sell or not to sell...
Since I am often harassed about selling my crafts, I have finally broken down and decided to open an Etsy shop. Which is more daunting than I ever imagined, especially since I find it hard to focus on one type of craft at a time because I like creating so many different things. And as always, so much to do so little time!
I wanted my shop to be special and offer something unique that I could express my personality through. (of course I think this is what everyone sets out to do when opening an etsy shop)
I have been toying with the idea of creating "art for the home" that is not just for hanging on the wall. Something unique that stands out. And so it begins... the creation of my hand screened pillows and other items for my Etsy shop Bootsilly.
Here's a little sneak peak!!
Shown above... "Little Bird" plush and "Big Flower" accent pillow.
