creJJtion is on Etsy !

some of you opened an Etsy shop in one evening

but for me it is a big deal

I doubted about it for months : to sell online or not?

but with all encouragement from you, family and friends, I decided to go for it

writing out my baby blanket patterns and offering custom made blankets to you


the shop will grow over time

as I add more patterns and products

you can find it all in the creJJtion shop on Etsy

but today and I am sharing pictures of 2 items that I saved to reveal as the shop opened

a new coaster set and Miami Beach Girl ~ a new pattern and blanket !

personally I love the colors in Miami Beach Girl

classic, timeless, girly but with a blue twist

I am happy, proud, tired, excited, curious all at the same time now that the shop is open


and last but not least : we have a winner !

the random number generator picked number 13: 


who happens to be one of the biggest supporters of my Etsy shop

sweet Carole, you can choose the breakfast set or a free pattern of your choice !


wishing you all a very happy and sunny Easter
