The reason this has been on my mind lately is that my youngest just graduated from speech therapy and the Special Needs program through the school system. Thank goodness he did it right in time, since the IDEA program that provides for special needs services has disappeared from the new administration's web site and is not mentioned in the education bill which was just drafted. But anyway, this is the first time in almost 13 years we have not had a child in any kind of therapy or special school or anything. You might not suppose it takes up all that much time if it's being provided at school, but consider this: in the time since my son graduated, a little over a month, I made the Top 10% of eBay sellers. The Top 10! And I work from a hundred square foot attic and my kitchen table and do absolutely everything myself! In that time I have also started my own custom printed kids' clothing line, listed two huge boxes of baby girls' clothes, created my own exclusive line of handpainted doll eyes, invented and created a line of "magic potion" steampunk perfume roll-on necklaces using essential oils, shipped all my sold items, worked in my spring garden... and oh, just cooked, cleaned, and cared for my family of five humans and six pets! So obviously, therapy was taking up more time than even I realized!
To celebrate these several victories I am offering an extra 10% off already-discounted items in my eBay store, as well as listing several auctions at low starting bids. This sale lasts only through Sunday/Monday at midnight, March 6/7. I hope you will celebrate with me!

|This design comes in a few different colors and styles.|
|My Lake Girl design|
Today I also got my first multiple order for my new "Lake Girl" design. I just returned from getting shirts in the requested colors and sizes! Around here I make these to say "Lake Norman Girl" but any lake name or no lake could be used.
|This design can be personalized.|
I listed several new pairs of handpainted doll eyes today too. This group features deep aqua blue 20mm size eyes and viridian green 15mm eyes. Each pair is handmade and unique, so they are terrific to give your doll a one-of-a-kind appearance.
Our oldest just turned 18 (how is that possible?) and for his birthday I created this custom monogrammed shirt inspired by old school rap music. He wants to be a neurologist so I added a tiny brain to the design.

I have more shirts for moms and dads using this design but I haven't made the shirts yet. The M.O.M. design features a wine glass instead of the brain and the D.A.D. design has a beer bottle. I have small versions for cups and tumblers as well. I have so many ideas whirling around in my brain there just aren't enough hours in the day to even begin to make them all!
You can buy some of these ready-made on eBay and Poshmark or order custom designs from Etsy or Facebook. I hope you will!
