I’ve been making a lot of changes around here. You may have noticed, but I’m ready to announce my big changes!
First off, I’m changing my blog name. I will no longer be ThisMomBlog.com; I am now ThisMomMade.com. You have until July to switch your RSS feed. thismomblog.com will expire in July; but for now it automatically reroutes you to ThisMomMade.com Change your bookmarks, change your RSS feeds to thismommade.com and stay tuned with me and my crafty adventures.
Second, I’ve opened an Etsy shop! There isn’t much in it now, but I’m working hard to make my inventory. If you’ve seen it on the blog, then chances are it’s going in the shop. If you’ve seen anything on the blog that you’d like me to make for you, just let me know and I can do a custom order for you. The shop is called ThisMomMade: Custom Sewing for Home and Family You can find it at thismommade.etsy.com. I’m excited to be opening a shop and hopefully by this summer I can have enough inventory to do my first booth at a festival/fair. Check it out, tell your friends, buy stuff from the shop.
Third (and lastly) I’m getting myself some business cards. I went through a company called UPrinting.com and have enjoyed the process. I was even able to view a sample of my card (Acrobat) before I paid for the whole batch. I designed them to look like the blog. I should be getting them in the mail in about a week. I’ll have to let you know how I like them.
Starting this as a business is also the reason for the change in the blog name. In the back of my head I thought about opening up a shop, or doing a booth, but thought it would happen toward the end of the year. Well I started telling people that I make and sell things and had to dive in and get things off the ground. So here we are, business started, with cards to hand out at fairs and to other people I know or meet.
Wish me luck in this endeavor and buy something from me. Let me know what you want and I’ll get right on making it. I’ve had 2 orders from friends already, and was able to get their items back in less than a week.
