I love crafting of all types, but one of my favourite is cardmaking and scrapbooking. Unfortunately I don't get as much time to do it as I would like...I usually do more scrapbooks for gifts than for myself and actually, the last time I scrapbooked for myself was for my oldest son's first Hallowe'en - 5.5 YEARS ago! Anyway, that being said, I also love to shop for scrapbooking and papercrafting supplies! A great online site that posts a deal a day is http://www.scrapbooksteals.com/ - this is a sister site to the baby steals site that I also love to check daily (among many others). What are your favourite crafting sites?

First Post!

Hello and welcome to the Sweetie Bug Creations blog! I've been stewing over selling my creations for years now but it has finally come to fruition! Every time I give one of my handmade cards or gifts someone says to me "you should sell these!" and, well, now I am! So, I am starting this blog as an addition to my facebook page and also as another creative outlet! I am a mother of 3 children ages 6 and under and am currently off work after the birth of the daughter, ages 3 months, who is the inspiration behind Sweetie Bug. That is my little name for her. She has a cute little tuft of hair at the back that sticks straight up and was the inspiration for my newest craft of hair clippies. They are super fun to make and I am crafting them to also match tutus (another new crafting passion!). I made several for Christmas gifts and I got "the bug" so to speak! It's hard to find time to craft and to build up any inventory to sell when I have a busy household to manage, but I hope to add more variety to my offerings over time. Over the past several years I have enjoyed making handmade greeting cards for those close to me, and for my children have made party invitations, birthday banners, and other fun paper-crafty things. I would like to offer some up for sale in the near future.
I am just in the midst of getting everything up and running on my "Sweetie Bug Creations" facebook page and figuring out how to get a start at all this selling business. I hope to be able to attend a craft fair or two and to sell online. In the meantime I have set up an e-mail sweetiebugcreations@gmail.com to field any custom order requests or ordering inquiries. I really look forward to getting going!!!
