Brown Swan? What is Brown Swan?
I feel like I have been waiting to do this post forever… If you haven’t figured it out already, I am always getting into something. Some new project, some new class, some new venture… I just can’t sit still!
Greg and I have learned that we
like love to create things. He is great at sewing and I am best left to anything but sew!! I did, however, attempt to make a bow tie for him once. It turned out OK. It wasn’t so bad and was certainly usable. When Greg attempted to make a bow tie – well, it turned out really darn good! He got loads of compliments and comments! Next thing you know, we have an abundance of fabric and we are spending our date nights zipping through bow ties… some for Greg, some for his brother, others as gifts…
While Greg was busy making his bow ties, I started working on other projects. I started making fabric flower pins, hair accessories… and even tutus for for my god daughter! We would sit together at the dining table with a glass of wine and chat while crafting, pausing to inspect each other’s work and pay it a well earned compliment… best date nights ever!
Well, we decided to take things to another level – just to see what we can do. Last night we opened our Etsy shop and listed 6 items. We even launched a website: BrownSwan.com named for our clumsy but lovable, non-graceful weimar, Rain.
Right now we are just getting started. 6 bow ties are up… We plan to add many, many more. We also plan to start adding in our fabric flowers (pins, barrets, shoe clips, bouquets, etc) and tutus!
I am super excited about this, not because we plan on making a ton of money… because we love to create and share!
Please check out the site and shop – let me know what you think! Maybe there is something you are looking for and we can help make it for you? And for any of you shop owners out there… Any advice? Food for thought? Do’s and Don’ts? I am all ears!!
I hope everyone is having an awesome and beautiful Wednesday!!!
