Work in progress -- Mind the orange cones!!!!

I've been silent for several weeks, trying to figure out what the heck I'm going to do with BettyBee now that the warm weather is teasing us..... moving in for a day or two then slipping away again like a dream.

I've tossed around the idea of making bags.  I love this idea, but have to learn something about bag construction before I can attempt it.

Screenprinting t-shirts?  No good..... everybody and their brother (and their brother's cat) is buying blanks and printing something cute, clever, or utterly bizarre on it and selling it.

Soft toys?  Maybe.... I'm still mulling this one over.

I'd like to make jewelry or key chains, but that requires some minor investment of $$$$.  Excuse me while I step away to check my wallet and let the moths flutter out :(

In the meantime.....

I'll be trying to post vintage items up in the Etsy store, as I can.  The next few weeks will be busy with the in-laws leaving for Thailand on May 16th.  No, not vacation, but for their retirement!!  I'm excited for them, but sad too.  I care about my in-laws and I know my husband and kids are upset to see them go.  They're leaving the house to us to do with as we like.  There's a lot of work to be done to the house, and a ton of preparation before their departure.

Wish me luck!
