new cowls

Since I retired the Barrow cowls, I knew I wanted to get something in the shop that resembled them (using the same type of yarn). So I came up with this design, I hope you like it!
See the 5 new colors here.

inspiration

6 years ago I heard the quote, "a dream deferred will hurt you over time" and is what ultimately drove me to push the 'open shop' on etsy. I had this crazy idea to turn my passion and the story of my grandmother and I into a cohesive thing. A way to honor her and keep her close to my heart. My dreams still scare me, but they certainly are not being put aside. Also, I truly do not believe that the measure of success lies in the number of sales, its what you accomplish along the way and how you impact others. Believe in what you make.

yarn storage

Over the weekend we built this new unit for all of my yarn. It was such a great project to work on and I love the way it turned out. I still have more yarn on the shelf directly in front of this and in all of the deep drawers. But this works great for the large amounts of yarn I have to order at one time. It beats having to line it up along the wall where it easily gets knocked down by the littles ;)

etsy podcast interview

My Etsy podcast interview is up! To be honest, I was so scared to do this but after (I say after because I was still so nervous) I really enjoyed it! (And as for the question I could not think of an answer for on the spot...the greatest lesson I have learned is to believe in myself). ;)  

The interview can be found on convome.com or iTunes.

short post sunday


If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.

iced

I am almost done photographing new shots...
its always nice to be done with this step so I can concentrate on other things for the shop. I am about to dive into an overwhelming task that I have never attempted before, that will take about 3 months to complete. I hope it pays off in the end :D
is it only Tuesday?

ignited

Sometimes I forget what got me to this point. I forget the pieces that make up this whole. The errors, negativity, even the positive. But today, I chose to remember purposefully and reflect. It's been a six year journey (almost). I am where I am today because of my amazing customers. Because of you. The support, love, and friendships have pushed me to become greater. Even better that I could ever imagine myself to be. When I first started my shop, I never dreamed it would become what it is today. Prayers have been answered, goals have been achieved, and bigger dreams have been ignited. I try to stay focused and trust in God and my talent to propel me forward. So today I humbly remember who I was. What I am. The amazing things I can do, all from two small hands. No dream is too big. You can truly do anything.

Here is the new piece for little ones, the Arapaho poncho. And if you haven't noticed the trend-all of the little pieces are exactly like the adult accessories. Finley was such a great model today with daddy's help! :D

vancouver

The color cranberry is always so hard to photograph. 4th time to take these and I think I finally got it right. The lighting has to be perfect to capture this color :) I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!

keep your hands warm

new photos of the oxfords in grey marble. last year, I lost count how many sweet customers asked if these had a thumb hole. I felt so bad that the photos didn't translate this. So I made sure to show this in the new photos (3rd image) and in the listing details. :)
Find them here, ozetta shop.

Also, I went out and purchased around 40 skeins of yarn today to make pieces and shoot them for the shop (not new items, just new photos). Can't wait to get started and edit them. If you look at all of the details that goes into making a shop, you would easily lose count. And the best part is, I love every step. There is not one thing that I dread. I am so blessed and overwhelmed with gratitude that I can call this my job.
xx to all of you!
