bunnies & books

Last week I purchased 3 patterns from Tara Murray's etsy shop, and I have to say I'm already in love with them after making up the first hat.  This is way too adorable, and includes several different sizes for newborn up through toddler age. I can't wait to make up the remaining patterns that I received: the lamb bonnet and the winter booties!

I have had the greatest time reading this book that I got out from the library a few weeks ago.  Kari Chapin put out Handmade Marketplace last year, and i've been filled with so much inspiration and encouragement already as I read my way through each chapter.  There are many things that I've already done to get my creative business off the ground, and so so much more information to absorb for marketing ideas and tax prep. Between the stories of support and tales of crafting blunders, all I can say is read this book and get making!
