Featured Etsy Seller #5 + Muffins

Hello and how are you today?

Here DownUnder is very windy, sun has come out and it is not so cold, fresh and a bit warm.

Good excuse to put out my resin molds that I did yesterday, so that they cure quicker. I also discovered that I could dip my finished resin objects into resin again to give them that shine and luster, not bad. Quick and easy and must let hang and drip from string for excess to flow away. Much better result then just polishing with paste and cloth, hmmm.

Oh yes I have just switched off the oven, I have made fresh chocolate chip muffins, the whole house wiffs of chocolate, they are cooling at the moment, I cannot wait to get stuck into them for morning tea.


Ok, ladies and gentle it is time to introduce my fifth featured Etsy seller.

Here work is just stunning and she sells professionally to photographers, without further adieu I present

After the Bump
After the bump specializes in the cute photography accessories you need for your bundle after the bump is gone.

My shop features crocheted items for newborn and child photographers, mainly baby cocoons and bowls, hanging pods, beanies and caps, and headbands. The majority of my items are my own unique designs and are very original in nature. I love using earthy tones as well as bright and vibrant colors in my products. I use all different types of textures of yarn as well, from 100% cotton yarn to chunky thick and thin yarn. I’m a yarnaholic, always looking for a fun new fix where ever I go.

I learned how to crochet at a very young age, but I really started doing something with it when my baby boy was born in October. I quit my full-time job a few weeks before he came, not thinking I would need to find work again. My delivery was a bit unconventional and my little man had to spend some time in the NICU, so he and I racked up quite the medical bill. In order to put a dent in things, I thought it time, once again, to go back to work. My main priority will always be to stay home with my baby, so creating my shop, After the Bump, made perfect sense. Of course, my few sales haven’t done much to curb the bill, but it’s a start.
