I had so much fun this year making all these gifts! I am debating if I should start an etsy shop in 2011. What do you think? Those of you with etsy shops, has it been worth it? It seems like I've heard they charge per post, per sale, and a portion goes to pay pal as well. How does one make money then? I finally got pay pal set up, so if there is anything you see on this blog that you like, I can send you a pay pal invoice. I just bought these mustard and brown flowers in California and just love them. I have more! I also just stocked up on Amy Butler fabric today at a local fabric store :) It was all on sale for $5 a yard plus 10% off my ENTIRE order! I can't wait to use it. Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the whole etsy thing! Thanks :)
I'm Katie! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was inspired to create MiaMoo Designs in honor of my daughter, Mia. This has been such a fun journey! I started MiaMoo Designs 7 years ago and was mostly selling flower clips and burp cloths. I slowly began incorporating dresses, skirts and other hair accessories and turned this blog into more of a craft blog where I could post all my projects, tutorials, etc. I've been making chunky beaded necklaces for about 6 years and I think I finally found my niche! They have really taken off :) I LOVE beads and designing new necklaces to go with various clothing lines and special outfits for my clients. I really enjoy custom orders because they continue to help me think outside the box. Both my daughters 9yrs. and 6yrs. wear my necklaces and feel so glamorous especially with all the compliments they get from people when we're out! MiaMoo Designs necklaces are so unique and will make any little girl feel special. To order, leave me a comment at the bottom of the blog post you are interested in, or go to my big cartel shop to see what is already pre-made (link is at the top right of my blog). You can also find me on Facebook! Thanks! Can't wait to work with you :)
Just a Side Note:
I use swarovski crystals on my accessories--Please keep in mind they do not always photograph well due to the way they pick up light. In person they are VERY sparkly :) If you have any questions regarding the color of the rhinestones used please feel free to leave me a comment!
