New completed projects and shop items

I made something for me! A couple of weeks ago I bought some of the supplies to make it. I was inspired by wreaths I have seen on Etsy and Flickr, but what pushed me to finally make one was a post by Angela here. And it's going up on my wall soon!

My sewing themed/bird wreath

I rarely make things just for me anymore, so I found it rewarding. But I thought wrapping the yarn around the wreath was a huge pain in the butt, and since I didn't use any directions I just winged it. I am sure there must be a tip for how to wrap the yarn easier. I happened to have all the accent pieces except the birdies in the nest, which I bought at Michael's.

Here are new items I either added or relisted recently in my jewelry shop:

New items soon to be added to my pillow shop:

Another post will be coming later with Etsy shops that need their first sale! And I think tomorrow I want to share some pictures from my backyard.
