New Adventures in Etsy-land!

So if your on my Facebook page, you will know that I’ve started another Etsy shop.  We have decided to call this one Great Lakes Craft.  We also have a Facebook page to follow along too!  This one my husband helps with.  He bought a machine for his business and I was like, I know I can use this and I know that we can make good money with what I want to make, so we tried it, and so far after just a few weeks, sales have been constantly coming in!

11717389_1552930794927726_3102322577126741279_oI know can offer wood monograms and engraved cutting boards(will be adding in the next day or so) in my shop!  I’ll be making more custom items later once I learn the software to design more, but these are turning out so cute and beginning to be a BIG seller for us!  I can’t wait to see what the holiday season brings for us!

11701088_1553559734864832_4277372170599294786_nWe are already super busy with kids sports (hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball) so adding in this and a full time job, CRAZY!!!  But being able to be an entrepreneur and do something at home is amazing!  I love having that creative outlet to make things and also the extra money we get while doing it!

If your interested in purchasing a wood monogram, I can do other fonts too! Just message me and ask!  Go ahead and check out my pages for more information!

Baby Shower Gifts

With a few new babies coming from friends and family, it’s the perfect opportunity for me to use my new multi-needle embroidery machine and make those cute gifts I’d been dying to make for awhile.  With my single needle, it’s not as easy to make these so I had shyed away from making bigger named projects just because it’s so complex.  But no longer will I do that!! I LOVE my new Brother Entrepreneur PE-650e!


I made this matching set for my old co-worker/friend who is due with a little girl around Thanksgiving.  We are throwing her a little shower today with some co-workers and it will be fun to see all my old friends!DSC_0217-1

The gown was ordered and I appliqued her name onto it.  I found this fabulous fabric at Hobby Lobby, so bright and cheerful!!  I made her a matching bib with the pattern that my aunt mailed me when I was pregnant with my son 9 years ago!  It’s a great pattern and perfect size for babies!!  And homemade is WAY better then store bought!  I also purchased the little knit hat and put her name on it too!  Perfect for hospital pictures!DSC_0221-1

Making this tag blanket was super easy.  Just use a 12″ x 12″ piece of fabric and minky backing, along with various ribbons and stitch it together.  Babies love these things!DSC_0222-1 DSC_0224-1

made her this beautiful gown out of a onsie and fabric.  I saw a few patterns on Pinterest and kinda made up my own.  I didn’t take pictures, but maybe next time.  It has elastic on the bottom just like the regular gowns.  Matching bib with minky on the back and a personalize burp cloth for Miss Sophia!DSC_0226-1 I can’t wait to see her open it today, which is why I set the blog to publish later on so she won’t see it til she opens it at the shower!!!  Congrats Matt & Amanda!

Where you right, Mr. Groundhog?

So if Spring is on it’s way earlier this year, where is it?  Most of us northern folks are getting anxious to step outside and enjoy the warmer weather, and as spring approaches, we all wish we could be on the beach somewhere, or enjoying a great baseball game with family and friends!  Detroit Tiger’s are a favorite baseball team in our family and we enjoy going to the games and just baseball in general.  There is nothing quite like a night game when the weather is amazing and your favorite team is winning!  Maybe a couple cold beers in your hand to help with the heat will do also! 🙂 

I made these cute keychains that go perfect for the Detroit Tiger’s lover in your life!! Check them out on my Etsy Site.

And if your just wanting a cute little gift for yourself or maybe even your bridal party?  How about monogrammed keychains? Message me for discounts on large orders.  

Now here in our area of Michigan, it’s supposed to be 50’s this weekend.  That’s like a hot spell for us! I hope the snow melts and we can semi-enjoy the outdoors this weekend!  Enjoy your week!
