How can a week have gone by since our last post? I really don’t know. I could say that my birthday got in the way, but hey – that was only one day, so I guess that excuse sucks.
One announcement before I get started: we have decided to move our shop over to Art Fire. For now, both our Etsy shop and our Art Fire shop are running, but we will likely drop Etsy eventually. Why? Art Fire is much, MUCH more friendly to both the seller and the customer.
We are excited about this move, and Art Fire improves even more every day. How refreshing – a handmade artisan site that actually listens to feedback! Our most recent kits are listed on Art Fire as of NOW, and we will be moving the rest over as soon as we get a chance.
Anyway, at last we have our April/May kit for you to salivate over. We got a little behind, what with our work on Acme and Color Kits (see below for the ones we currently have up for sale), but you still have some time to make some Mother’s Day projects… or scrapbook the event… or hell, use it for something else altogether.
This kit is titled “Happy Housewives” and takes us back to those whimsical and gender-biased days of the 1950’s woman. Children, husbands and fashion are primary interests… and although we enjoy so much more these days as liberated women in 2009, you must admit these topics are not exactly passe.
Of course, there’s plenty here for any project you might be inspired to create… gorgeous fabric, floral paper, blossoms, brads… well, have a look-see for yourself.
