And we're open for business!


Yay! Beckybean is now open for business in 2009. It's probably a bit shameless to be plugging the store on my blog but I'm super excited as three of my bags are now up on our site. And it appears one of my bags was picked by Etsy Admin to be featured on the front page, so it's had loads of views. Double yay! I'm so new to all of this that I'm still a bit excited about the whole process and probably don't have a grasp on the proper blogging and Etsy store etiquette yet (so sorry!)... It just feels good to be creating and sewing these lovely little bags.

Each bag will be named by its maker - Bec tends to name her bags after characters or general references from Enid Blyton books (her favourite childhood author), while all of mine will be 'foody' names (my other passion in life!).

This year we're going to try (?) and upload our bags in small 'collections'. This week is market totes and hopefully by the beginning of next week we'll have a little collection of reversibles up. So stay tuned for more bag goodness :P

Congrats on your new esty shop! And getting front page! I am a bit new to blogging too, but I don't think there is a problem in sharing your wares in your blog at all! Hope the good luck continues for you!

Huge congratulations. Those bags are so lovely. They certainly did deserve to be on the front page. I hope this is a good sign that this year will be fantastic for you and Bec.

Since from time to time you have written about children's writer, Enid Blyton, I am glad to inform you that I have written and published a book on her, titled, The Famous Five: A Personal Anecdotage (www.thefamousfiveapersonalanecdotage.blogspot.com).
