I'd like to take a few minutes to brag about my sister right now. Her name is Kelly, & she could sew circles around even the fastest knitting little old lady in the West! I remember when we were little, she was about 5 years old & creating clothes for our dollies & family dog using safety pins & fabric scraps. In Home Ec., she practically taught the class, & when I got married back in 2001, there was no one else I trusted as much to make the gown of my dreams!

You're looking at a crocheted apple tree cuff, tree ring, owl cuff, deer girl necklace, another tree ring, embroidered deer & girl scarf, crocheted tree necklace & a cupcake cuff all made by my sister as though it was no harder than blinking!

She sold pants, skirts, scarves, purses & tops on ebay for ten long years, but like so many others, is now totally fed up with ebay's irrational new policies. It's beyond ridiculous though for someone to possess this talent & not make use of it, so currently my sister is now trying to make a name for herself in the etsyverse. I know etsy is already overflowing with people who can sew... but there has to be room for a person like my sister who was practically sewing in the womb!

Her shop is open now & the items you see up top there will all be available today. I've already had her custom-make me too many pieces to mention but have promised her I won't pounce on those owl & cupcake cuffs I want soooooo bad. Please take a mosey on over to her shop when you get a moment. I know your hearts would mean the world to her!

Looks like your sis makes some really cute stuff. I'm sure she'll do great on Etsy. I also just found this contest by Fred Flare that she might do really well in. It's open to crafters of all kinds and the winner gets a $1000 and their item sold on Fred Flare and which would get her some great exposure.
