Summer Feeling!

I've got that summer feeling!
Today it is a sunny 80 degrees in Indiana. It feels like summer. Has me thinking of summer.
I bought some bright orange and peach at the fabric store. Im planning on going back for some purple and reds.
What colors are you guys wanting to see more of?

Soon I will put up pictures of what comes from my trip to the store yesterday... until then, new items!!

Front Page Here I Come!

Are you ready for this?
It is a great day in the world of an Etsy seller when they are featured on the front page! My day was this past saturday. I received 1 sell, 15 shop hearts and tons of item hearts. Hopefully more people have discovered Renegades items.

Other news, I have listed a few new items. One has already sold. The cutest little bobbies. I call them Earth Day because they make me want to go out and save the world.

Hopefully I can figure out how to add this widget that shows me on the front page. Off to try it.

I know... 2 posts in a day. I am just showing off now.
but really... I have done a lot of soul searching lately. I realized I have been on auto pilot. I have been going about life as if I were just trying to get through the day. does anyone know what I am saying?
let's start with dreams and goals. I didn't have any for a long time. I think I was too scared to fail. well you don't know if you don't try. I also had tried to put everyone else in front of my own needs. so as a result of realizing this I have an action plan now. I am writing a business plan and taking actions toward meeting that plan. what have you done to get yourself jump started?
I am allowing myself to listen to music to decide what I like. I am redecorating my room in colors only I could love. I am setting my own routine. its scary. if I keep with it I think I will learn a lot about myself. only good things from here on out. it is bound to affect my creativity as well. who knows what I will be making next!

did you miss me?

I am sorry for being gone for so long. if I were to try to explain why I have been without internet it would take a while. I will just say I am back and connected.
I am blogging right now from my new palm treo. which means anywhere I get a spare moment I will be on the web blogging or tweeting or hanging out in etsy forums.
so the family left for colorado springs this morning. when they get back I promise to have pictures of the beautiful store where some renegades origionals now live.
on another note... has anyone noticed that etsy seems to be everywhere now? on page 118 of the april elle mag there are 3 pendants from and I was reading home companion and saw an article in there too. that can only be good news. I guess I need to start getting some new stuff up. keep on the look out!
