Pulling Ideas from Odd Places



Sometimes coming up with new designs and ideas can be a job in itself. The goal for selling is to have products to sell. For returning customers I try my best to offer something new and even more creative. It's also a chance to try out a new skill and step out of the box.

I went to a fabric/yarn store with my mother after Thanksgiving. She knits & crochets and needed fabric to line a few purses. I crochet and thought I'd try my hand at some stretchy socks. While going through the isles we both stopped and looked at some spools of curtain/lamp shade dangling things ~ I'm most certain these dangles have a proper name. Mom has decorated lamp shades with them and they do add fashion to the decor. One caught my eye.

From curtain dangle thingies to earring and hair accessories.

I know what you mean, I go to the craft store, my grandma's closet, or when frenz give me their hand me downs, because they know I'm a crafty nafty, some how magic happens. Power to creativity, it's what makes this world go round. Plus you never know when that thing you bought, may just come in handy. Just gotta have it.
