With that in mind, we've decided to relaunch RicRacSally on Etsy. We've gotten a new banner made, we're having our avatar tweaked, and we're busy like little bees making happy pretty shabbilicious new things for the shop! We plan on closing down sometime the week of March 10 and then reopening March 14, just in time for TulipMania with the CSST! We're going to do the same thing here on the blog and make everything new and shiny.
I can't wait.
And I hope you're all just as excited by the new look when it happens as we are!

I can't wait until the ones in the yard start blooming. Well, on second thought I can because flowers mean weeds! But for now, the idea of it being warm and colorful out is enough to make me feel better :) And when I feel good, I feel like CRAFTING!

We've been on Etsy for 6 months or so and listing since October, so it's exciting to be able to join a group and be a part of something bigger than just our little shop! We hope that it gives us an opportunity to get to know other Etsians as well as bring more people to RicRacSally. Things have really slowed down at the shop, what with the holidays and deep, dark winter settling in. So it'll be nice to greet the spring with some new inspirations, new listings, new friends, and--hopefully--new customers!
Now if only the sun would come out so we could take some nice photos!

I also have favorite fabrics whose fate I have not yet decided. My sister gave me a big chunk of this gorgeous striped silk with embroidered flowers (Sweet peas? Poppies?). It may eventually be a purse...
I go gaga over anything with a Japanese aesthetic; I bought this stretchy faux silk last year, and still haven't made anything out of it yet. It will probably become a summer top. (sorry so dark!)
Sister also got me this fabric, many many moons ago...it is sheer black with black sequins in horizontal bands along elasticized gathers. I absolutely heart it, and have made the underskirt in a pale pink, I just need to finish it! She also found a remnant of it much later, so that I can make a matching top!! Such a shopper!
Last is my favorite drawer at my craft table--not fabrics, but certainly necessary to RicRacSally!! Hope you share your faves with us!!
