I've just recently designed these adorable Birthday & Name Banners to match with my Teddy Bear's Picnic Invitations, Cupcake Toppers, Gift Tags...... Each letter has got a little character on it, such fun to create! All the Party items in my Etsy Shop can be personalised.

Hi Catherine - Congrats on your great sales - I am not surprised - you have such wonderfully creative talent! I love all the embroidered patterns - they are each just adorable - but my favorite might be the little cupcakes collectio - I just love that little tiered tray full of goodies and that sweet embroidered carrot!

I am so very happy for your success - you certainly deserve it!

Vicki

ps - love the birthday banner!

Oh, I am loving that sweet mouse. I may just have to buy the set because they are too adorable.

I would love to know a bit of etsy secrets from you. I attempted for a bit but didn't try too hard as I got unexpectedly pregnant. My main question...how often do you list and relist?? A lot?

Megan Chamberlain said...

Bunny and her teacups. Thank you for the chance to win, I love your designs and beautiful illustrations.

Tracy said...

I love all of them, but Sweet Stories wins by a hare(err...mouse, you know.lol)
