Well hello there old friend! I cannot believe we are already into month two of the new year!
I know people typically say that January has about 2,349 days in it, but for me personally, January somehow flew right by! I did some sewing (catching up on blocks of the month). I got some more gnomes made and I just did some good ol’ relaxing!
I have some fun things in store for my business this year! I’m so happy to have you following along, so here are few things in store for you!
I have an Etsy Store – TheLucyBirdCo
Did you know I have an Etsy store? You didn’t? Really?
Well, I do!
You can find me on Etsy under TheLucyBirdCo and it’s where you’ll find a variety of goodies for sale! At the end of January I opened shop with a few gnomes.
They are now all in new homes and I LOVE to see how everyone is styling them!
I’ve also added in some new clutches and zippered pouches that have a punch of color!
Some items will be finished (such as the gnomes) and some will be DIY kits (I am waiting on a couple of items and soon I will offer a pattern and a foundation kit for how I make my gnomes). I also plan to have quilt patterns, digital downloads and quilting kits for sale on there.
OOOH, I’m excited already! Are you excited?
New Newsletter – The Lucy Bird Connection
Writing, if you haven’t noticed, is really my passion. Telling stories that I embellish? REALLY REALLY a passion. My newsletter, called The Lucy Bird Connection, will tell mostly true and semi-embellished stories and it will be where you get shop updates, freebies, and well, super fun stuff.
I hope you join!
Did you know that The Lucy Bird originally started as a furniture painting business?
I used to refinish and refurbish old furniture, but that’s tough to do when you don’t have storage for big pieces and you want to park cars in the garage when the midwest winter temps dip below negative 20.
My next idea was to teach in-person sewing classes, and well, a pandemic really threw a wrench in things! I’d love to get back to my idea of in-person classes (because in-person with actual people is the literal best) but I am also exploring ways to take The Lucy Bird Stitching School online as this whole pandemic churns on.
