Hello, all! I haven’t been around lately because I’ve been seriously considering a name change/rebrand. I’m not as happy with Tiny Sewing Empire as I thought I would be, so I’ve decided to merge TSE with my tolmema blog at the end of the summer. I’ll be opening a new shop on Etsy. I will still be making cosmetic bags, and adding quite a bit of product to my inventory. Expect a more professional, Etsy/Pinterest-esque feel from my products!
If you would like to receive news about opening dates, new products, and sales, please join my mailing list. I promise not to spam your inbox or give/sell your information to anyone.
As for the rest of the summer, I will be selling at the Farmers Market at the fairgrounds until the end of the summer. My Etsy store is still open for now, but there’s not much there. You’ll have better luck emailing me for photos of what I currently have in stock.
In the meantime, I am on the search for a local Bozeman photographer who can take photos of my products for my Etsy store. I’m not requiring a professional photographer, just someone who has a better camera than me and a light box. If you know someone or you are interested, please contact me so we can figure something out.
If you are interested in checking out my tolmema brand, I have a Facebook page, a twitter, and a blog. As I mentioned, I will be adding my shop in the fall, plus more new content.
I truly, madly, deeply (hehe), hope to see you guys over at tolmema; I’m really excited about the direction I’m taking. You should stop by and show me some love! 🙂
I’ve been sewing like nobody’s business, and have no pictures to show the fruits of my labor. Not that I haven’t tried – I’ve taken tons of photos, but the lighting is always weird, the colors aren’t right, blurry, etc. I’m thinking I might have to either 1) invest in a non-crappy camera, or 2) invest in someone to take some photos for me. I just took a look at my Etsy store and nearly burst into tears, because not only are the photos super lame, I don’t have ANY of my new stuff in there!!
So my goal for this week is to get some better photos to show what I’ve been doing!
It’s time for a gift giveaway!
Since Mothers Day is around the corner, I’ve decided to offer a baby blankie to one lucky winner!
The blankie will be about 40″ x 40″, made from two layers of soft, snuggly flannel that will only get softer as you wash it. It’s the perfect size for swaddling, covering a car seat, nursing, and tossing into your diaper bag.
These blankies are handmade by me with love. It’s the perfect gift for mommies in any stage of parenting, whether they have a little one (or two, or three…), or are expecting one soon.
AND: Because I’m so cool, I’ll even let you pick from a few different choices:
There are multiple ways to enter the drawing:
1. follow me on twitter (@tinysewinempire) AND comment on this blog post letting me know;
2. like me on facebook (Tiny Sewing Empire) AND comment on this blog post letting me know;
3. join my mailing list and let me know in the comments below.
4. or just be lazy and comment on this blog post AND tell me who you would give this blankie to if you were to win it!
I’ll give you an additional entry if you do one or more of these things…or if you tell me that my hair is extra shiny today.
It really is that easy to enter!
No purchases, no signups – just show me a little love. 🙂
The drawing ends on May 1st!! The winner gets 5 days to claim their prize before someone else is chosen.
So I’ve added some stuff to the site, a new tab called “tutorials”. They are all free tutorials of random stuff and things. Note: none of them are mine! I don’t claim any of them!
I hope you find at least one of them useful…I know that I’ve used a couple of them for my own creations. 🙂
