I know I haven’t been that great at updating lately – too many things to do, not enough time. I will try to be better. This post is just a short update to let you know that I finished 2 more states, Idaho & Montana, and that I think for the time being, I will get the files ready to be stitched, and do a product preview of what the stitching will look like with my selected colors, but I don’t have time to stitch them all out right now, and wrap them all with that much black ribbon – and store them! I am running out of storage space.
I think I will be having a Sample Sale soon of products that have been in storage for awhile. There will only be one of each for the most part. The items can still be made to order – also some that were made awhile ago I may not have the same fabric or supplies available to me, so it could be a Limited Edition! More on that to come.
Below are previews of completed Idaho and Montana, and a preview of Nevada. Still working my way East. You can find these completed and ready to ship designs at my new Shop, Rainy Day Designs Studio, or on Etsy. Nevada will be up soon. As soon as I get the finished piece stitched and hooped, I will update with a finished photo. But looking at the previous 7 states completed will give you a good idea of what your selected state will look like. I hope to have all 50 States available soon.
Thanks for stopping by – I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
P.S. There is a SALE over at Etsy. Put $20 or more in your cart and see your total drop 20%!
I got a lot done this week – I love batch creating! Many new Snap Tray options, bookmarks, bag tags/key fobs and a Fractions learning set. Trying to figure out what to make next – so much on my To Do list!
Hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend. We had a stormy weekend and they just keep coming. No hail this time though, happy about that. We are trying to keep the “Spring Cleaning” momentum going and finish some projects around the house. And I am still making new things – starting to do some back to school items because that is coming sooner than you think, and I know everyone wants to be ready!
This week I have some fun new hoop art, and some new key fobs and bookmarks, and some Hall Passes or large bookmarks for teachers, and some fun play crayons in a bag. For the Unicorn – I ALMOST made it purple. I have always been a “vote for the best person for the position” no matter what party they align with. Be a Unicorn – go have a Cocktail Party!
I am excited about what I am making now – and seeing what I can get done for next weekend!
Have a good first week of summer everyone! See all the new releases, and everything else, here on Etsy. If you are looking for something you don’t see let me know.
Oh it has been a busy week – busy for you too?! There are some other posts I want to make too so I will try to get those up this week. So this week I finished 2 new hoop arts and have ideas for more, some new coasters and some new finger puppets. I personally love all of them and I hope you will too!
I don’t know how you are doing but my brain is about to explode. 2020 is clearly a year to remember – or rather forget as soon as possible. The pandemic. The senseless killings and riots. The call to action for a movement long overdue. Working full time, trying to learn new things and come up with and create new products. Trying to learn digitizing so I can create my own designs. The “feels like 107″… Impending storms on the coasts… where does it end?
I have also started a new Facebook Group for My Rainy Day Designs for Exclusive Designs previews. And when I start digitizing I will post some designs there, sneak peeks, etc. until I am ready to start selling designs! See more here and join me today!

Happy Friday! Are you surviving whatever level of quarantine you are in? Honestly it’s not killing me – except I can’t just run to the store if I need something. A little more conscious about what and how much I use of everything. But if I run out of coffee or coffee creamer…
So I switched gears. I know I said I wanted to make all the coaster designs I have – and I still do – but there are a LOT more to make. I really wanted to make some bookmarks too. I had to switch things up, and I am so glad that I did – these bookmarks turned out great! And there are more bookmarks to come. I have such a long list of things to make, the hard part right now is figuring out what to make next – and what supplies I have for it in my stash, or do I need to wait until I get the correct supplies. So I make what I can make and hope for a perfect overcast day the next day to get a good shot. It doesn’t always happen.
Here is my latest set of Bookmarks, and some new Key Fobs – aren’t Cutie Cthulhu and little Gus Gus so adorable? And Jaq is coming soon!
Find the Key Fobs in the Key Fobs & Bag Tags section and find all the Bookmarks in the Bookmarks & Book Weights section. Perfect for an Easter Basket – at least one of each ready to ship. And watch for more to come soon!
