When I moved back to Milwaukee a couple years ago, I started a Facebook group for local moms, called Broads with Babies. It was originally intended to be a way to get together for play dates. Little by little it grew, and now it's at 700 some moms! Obviously we don't all get together, but there is a good core group that is always on there, and it's nice to have a place to ask a question and get some good answers. Don't know about you, but I usually hate online mom's groups. People get so judgy and bitchy! Luckily these ladies are pretty rad and no one gets too preachy. So far it's been a good experience, and I've met a lot of new friends through there!
Anyway, yesterday I had two baskets full of stuffed bunnies I'd finished. I thought "boy, I sure don't want to have any of these things left like I did last year. God knows we don't need more stuffed animals in our house." So I posted a picture on my Broads with Babies group, seeing if anyone wanted one.
Within a few hours I had sold all of them! And now I have a list of orders to make more! And people had gone to my etsy shop and asked to buy bibs, too. It was completely overwhelming!
I am so thankful that I can sit here in my basement with lovely fabric and sew things people actually want. I am so thankful that Otis will sit here with me and let me do this. I am so thankful I get to buy more fabric when I want, lol! Today is a good day, despite the 5" of snow that is supposed to fall.
