small steps

ok...i've taken a small step in the right direction. i've opened an etsy site! visit Quirky Kid to see it. i only have one item up there so far, but will add some more over the next week or so. thank you for your feedback. the first item posted on Quirky Kid is my diaper caddy.

i have two new project ideas that i'm working on now....i hope to have some fresh material for you next week.

have a great week!

i have a project of a different kind to share this morning. i've been playing around with the idea of starting a little business for a while now. i knew one of these days i was going to have to stop talking about it and actually get off my comfy couch and do it. so, here i go.

i'm planning on opening an etsy shop. quirky kid designs. i hope to be up and running in the next week or so. i'm trying to decide which items to sell. i've narrowed it down to a few items. let me know what you think! (i could really use the help!)

choice #1 - customized alphabet shelf

choice #2 - joyeau* towel holder

choice #3 - diaper caddy

choice #4 - enia boxes

tell me what you think about these choices. also, i need a little help on the price point...let me know how much you'd buy them for! thank you!

a 4 year old's birthday present

my niece turned 4 this past week. and to honour her love of all things fairy and all things fairy princess (she insists there is a difference between the two!) i made her a fairy door.

a few months ago, i came across a story about a man by the name of Jonathan B. Wright who started a whole 'urban fairy' phenomena in Ann Arbor. very cute story.

these doors are sold all over the internet, but my niece's door was directly inspired by steph's work over at etsy. i love the spin she puts on her door description. steph points out that the fun begins when discovering what kind of fairy has moved in...a travel fairy, a cleaning fairy, etc. very clever idea to use on kids!

i found steph's work through leslie's write-up on her blog, a room somewhere.
