Too cute

Isn't this adorable...makes me wish I had one of the new Nano's because that is what it was made to fit. I had a creative urge last night after dinner and made this. It is lined with cotton knit and has a snap closure. This little case had a former life as an orange Old Navy wool sweater. I have lots of the sweater left so plan to make a few ohte items with it.

I spent most of the day today working on my Etsy shop bookkeeping. I've been putting this off for some time so I had a considerable amout of work to do...taking all my receipts and translating them onto my Etsy spreasheet. when I'm fiished, I'll have a better picture of how I did in the first year of my business. (6 months actually). I do know that I sold 63 items. I probably need one more day to get it all done before I figure my taxes for 2007. And in 2008, I've promised myself I'll keep up on this more regularly.

I almost forgot, I tested out the "not a plastic grocery bag" that I made yesterday at the store today. I thought it worked extremely well. I plan to make more but with a couple of adjustments. Keep posted and I'll elaborate as I work on version 2.

PS I hate not having spell check!

Thanks, I think I'm going to make some "matching" accessories because I love the orange felted wool and I also have plenty left from the sweater.
