It may seem a bit late that I'm wishing you this, but I the year IS still new, so I can still wish it. I've had a busy year so far. Some of it great and some of downright sad.
The great part of it is that I've finally got a pretty good vision for
Miss Niss Craftworks. This is my new year's resolution. To better the business and get it on the right track. I have already changed the logo to be a bit more fitting for the business. Text is be a stitched looking font, which I found appropriate. The butterfly will still be part of the logo, since I'm quite attached to it and it will go with the product concept I'm working on.
You see I want to offer products that are more 'me.' Not necessarily in style (but will be on some level), but in spirit. I've been trying way too hard (in my mind at least) to be something I'm not. I tried things that were popular, but they don't really sell and they weren't entirely me either. There are too many of them as there is! How can I compete with that? Plus, I didn't completely enjoy making things so similar to others.
Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE gardening and all things related to nature. So, I am planning to create products that have the spirit of the beautiful outdoors in mind. I already have my cute little birds and flower headbands other ideas won't be too hard.
One of the items I'm considering making for sale are the hedgehog mittens you see in the photos. These cute little critters I've notice are a bit popular. People want to buy the actual animal as a pet or occasionally I'll see one as ornaments or whatever. Actually, I got the idea from my brother.
My brother, who these gloves belong to, loves them as well! I thought the pattern turned out pretty nice as well. I love the look, though will try maybe a brown and cream for future mittens. I also need to figure out the thumb hole a bit better.
All in all, I do believe hedgehog mittens would be a great addition to my knew product concept!
