Kinder Stikken

Well, I did it.

I'm finally going to try to sell some of the things I've made (try being the key word here). Last night I scanned photos of past projects and downloaded pictures of recent things and made a new blog for my little "business." This Saturday I'll "debut" at our own little "Berwyn Heights Day" - a kind of welcome spring day our town has, complete with moon bounce, helicopter rides and . . . gulp . . . craft vendors (ME!).

In addition to the new blog, I made a bunch of cards and price tags. In doing so, I realized I really did need a name. So, thanks Anne for the great ideas (I really liked "itchin to stitch" and "built to quilt"), but I decided to go with something kid-oriented and, well, Dutch. I turned to my trusty English-Dutch dictionary and found that "quilt" in Dutch is "stikken" (like I'm stickin my finger when I make them). And "child" is "kind." So I messed it all up and made "Kinder Stikken" - children's quilt. It probably isn't really Dutch, but no one around here will know that.

So the new blog is http://kinderstikken.blogspot.com. Let me know what you think. I'm still working on it and probably eventually I'll have to make a regular website since blogging is a little different format than what I'll need, but it'll work for now.

Hey! I really like it! I like the name, and the format of that blog is great. If you don't sell everything, I'd be happy to buy a few of those burp cloths from you--so many new babies coming! Also, those baby towels/washcloth combos look like they turned out really well! Nice!

Katie - It's wonderful! I love the name and your products look very nice - you've made a great start! I'm so proud of you! I don't know if you can change it, but when I go to view a category, say blankets, I can't see any items until I scroll down a little. It might lead someone to believe that there are no products to see on that page. I hope you do well on Saturday!!

I'm still trying to figure out how to do pictures, but when I do, I'll be adding those as well!

The site looks great. I might be looking to buy some for the next occasion that comes up.

Good Job!
