I got it!

Yeah! I am so excited! I was finally able to get some paper I have been drooling over for months. "Mind's Eye" is one of my favorite brands and I was able to pick up three of their new lines.
Which ones, you ask? Well, "Alphabet Soup" was one, of course. I also took home the boy set and girl set to make some adorable new blocks with. I think these are going to become my new favorites!
I also brought home "Haunted" to make some Halloween blocks for the holiday. Keep checking back, because they will be up soon!

Upcycled Crayons!

I will be listing some second chance/upcycled crayons later this afternoon. I made a few too many for my son's first birthday party. And by a few, I mean like...Forty! Oops. But, fortunately, he loved them and so did his friends. These crayons are all made from "Crayola" and are perfect for little fingers to hold. They don't break easily, and they seem to last forever. Enjoy!

Something New

I am working on some new blocks that I am very excited about! I hope to be listing some upcycled/recycled blocks in the near future. I have been working hard to get my hands on some untreated, used wood to use when making blocks. I have some paper picked out so I should have them finished over the next few weeks. I love the idea using something old to make something new. Before I list them, I will let my son try them out and make sure they are kid-approved!

100+ Hearts!

Today I noticed that I have over 100 people that "heart" my shop. So, I wanted to to take the time to send out a big "Thank You!" to everyone! I truly enjoy creating blocks for your children to learn from, play with and love! Having an Etsy shop has been a wonderful adventure so far, and I will continue to work hard and create new design for you to enjoy.
What Etsy achievement do you think I should work towards next? How about 100+ sales? Sounds like a good goal to me!
