Huge Savings! 40% Off everything in my PurplePlatypus shop on Etsy.

Looking for some great gifts ... start your Christmas shopping ... purchase something for yourself?   Hurry on over to my PurplePlatypus shop on Etsy.  I just put everything up for sale at 40% OFF!!

Here is the link:

I will be closing down my PurplePlatypus store in the near future so therefore the Moving Sale!  Working full time, doing the farmers market and running two Etsy shops is a bit much. I'm helping my daughter run her Etsy shop she just opened MauveMoose so time is real precious these days.  I figured with having just one Etsy shop of my own I can put more effort all in one spot so I won't feel so stressed out running out of time to do it all, or at least trying to do it all.

So hop on over and do some shopping.  Christmas is only 147 days away so get busy!!!

Itty bitty pink and grays

I love the color pink and gray together for a baby.  So here are a whole bunch of them I found and put into a treasury on Etsy.  Have fun clicking away finding more favorites for purchasing some lovely baby items .... not just in gray and pink but all kinds of other beautiful combinations.

red green and yellow

These are the colors of my latest treasury!   Made me think of a traffic light.  I couldn't come up with a creative title for this one so that's why it ended up very simple!   

An annoying thing keeps happening with some of the photos I put in my treasuries.  I contacted craftcult who I use to put up the photos of my treasuries and they told me it's a problem they are having with items that are still pretty new.  They are working on trying to figure out how to fix it.  I hope any day SOON as this is very annoying looking at my treasury with a photo missing!  I know there are other apps out there to do this kind of stuff so I might have to go dig and see what I can come up with.  But for now you will have to make do with a couple of missing photos on my treasury!  Bummer!

Pretend play felt strawberries in a wood bucket

My kid has been busy making more items for her shop.  We decided to put this set of felt strawberries in a cute little wood bucket in my BitsOfFiber shop since they are so cute for pretend play.  She is making more of these which she will be selling in her MauveMoose shop as cat toys.  The cat toy ones will be filled with catnip versus the pretend play are only filled with fiberfill.  These would be really cute for a kitchen display or a playhouse, doll house etc.  I just love these!  I'm gonna have to ask her to make some to put in my kitchen.  

Here is the link to purchase them in the BitsOfFiber shop:

Lavender dreams treasury

Made a treasury based on the catnip mouse made by my daughter who has her own shop now (with mom's supervision).  She's been doing pretty good selling her catnip mice via my shop as well as at the Farmers Market.  She also started making the embellished horseshoes and will be carrying those in her shop MauveMoose as well.  She's making more felt cat toys right now so as soon as they are finished she will be listing them as well.

The MauveMoose Etsy shop

My daughter just opened her own Etsy shop today.  She named it MauveMoose and is selling catnip mice.  She will be adding more items as time moves on.  But for now here is the link to her shop and pictures of the mice.  Aren't they cute!  Every kitty needs one of these, or a couple!

What a great way to wake up and finding out that I'm one of the winners for the Homespunsociety treasury team challenge on Etsy.  I've been sharing with you all the treasuries I made during the last 4 days which I entered into the challenge and this is the one that won:

I want to thank the team (Homespunsociety) for promoting both of my shops all day today for being one of the winners.  Every bit of promoting helps and I'm very thankful for that. 

Now I must share with you that I wasn't the only winner.  Kornelia who also owns two shops on Etsy won as well.  She makes some gorgeous jewelry so do check them out.  Here are the links to both of her shops.

4th of July Treasury challenge

Made a couple of treasuries as part of the 4th of July Treasury Challenge for the Homespunsociety Team on Etsy.  So click to your hearts content and visit all the stores presented in both these treasuries, I bet ya you will find some new favorites amongst them.

Vanilla cupcake hat with a strawberry on top

I love cupcakes!  The real ones and the knitted or crocheted ones.  I love them all.  My daughter bakes the best cupcakes from scratch.  Her dream is to open a cupcakery sometime down the road.  For me, I'm much better at knitting or crocheting cupcakes.  I do ask her advise on how to top them off, a strawberry or a cherry ... or something else.  So, per her suggestion here is my latest one ... a vanilla with vanilla frosting and a strawberry on top.  It's for sale in my Bitsoffiber etsy shop.  If you click on the link below the picture it will take you right to it.  Next will be a red velvet, with vanilla frosting and I'm not sure yet what the topping will be.  

So so cute! Newborn summer outfit set.

I didn't make it to the market today due to the power outages things got kinda crazy around the house so I decided to put together this set which includes the dress, the booties and the hairband on my little model doll!  Thought it was so so cute.  The entire set is up for grabs in my shop if you click the link below the picture it will take you to it.  You will save $18 if you purchase the entire set instead of purchasing all three items separate.  I will be making up more sets in the future but if you are only interested in one or two of the items then send me a message and I will see what I can do.
