Crafts: Work In Progress Wednesday!

9 Nov

Welcome to Work In Progress Wednesday! Here is where I show off whatever I’m working on for the week and I also give other shops a chance to show off what they are working on. I’ve always been a big fan of getting to know the person behind the shop and I feel like this is a great way to give everyone a chance to see a little bit behind the scenes of the lives of some amazing shops!

This week I’ve been working on a few custom orders, a burp cloth set for my next craft show, and some cup cozies I’m doing for a giveaway! Although it seems like a lot – it’s been a lot less stressful and a lot more fun this week. I’ve decided to take a new attitude to getting things done in a rush! Instead of panicking and pushing myself and being unhappy I decided to go with the, “Don’t worry! It’ll get done in time!” method. Not only did everything get done in time – I’m ahead of schedule! So here’s a picture of cup cozies I’m in the process of making:

Probably sometime next week I’ll have these posted in my etsy store! DaydreamingGifts

Here are some other stores I think you might like:

“This set of 4 “farm animal” blocks is $ 15.00 and it’s for a sweet little girl named Anna.  This customer was one of my very first sales a few months ago.  I made custom sets for her  little ones.  She CAME BACK to purchase gifts!!! It’s very, very exciting and I am so grateful to have such wonderful shoppers. I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love :)” – MiaBoo

“This is a pair of my bow pants in the works.  The legs are done and ready to become a pair of pants and have the bows attached.  Behind those are stacks of Christmas preorders that are in various stages of completion.” – BridgetandCo

“This is a shopping cart cover for your little one that will make you never want to go back to a life without it! There are so many awesome features that stand out from others – it’s super cushy, reversible, made with materials specifically for baby (not hard metal), and has pockets for mom!!” – iBstitchN

“I got a lot of these clear glass coin like stones and decided to do something a little different with them. So I start by drilling a hole in to them, I sort of marble paint them, apply a clear glaze to protect it and then wire wrap it! It takes a little time to do this project, there are a lot of steps to it but I love the result and I think that it would work well with custom pieces.” – sweetnotion

“This a button up diaper cover is crocheted with acrylic yarn and is accented with a wooden button. This is perfect for photo shoots or if you just prefer cute diaper covers with outfits. This is small enough for a newborn and up to 3 months.” – nicolesbreastfriends

I hope you enjoyed the WIP Wednesday! We’ll be doing this every week so come back next week for some more fun!

Love Always,

    Woah, I had no idea something as cool as a diaper cover existed! Very awesome. You have a great variety of crafts here. I’ve been meaning to learn how to crochet, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet and have been so busy with the jewelry. but it’s on my list!
