I have been selling handmade childrens clothing online for just about 3 years now. I got my start on ebay in a small group that had come together to help newcomers - or "newbies" such as myself, learn the rope of selling on ebay.

I learned SO much that first year, how to write HTML code to create "pretty" templates, what styles/elements sold well on ebay, how to capture a great photo of my designs and more....I also made my first online designer friends - or "imaginary" friends as we sometimes call each other!

Patty Young of Modkid fame was one of my first friends online. I have watched her grow from a wonderful clothing designer to an incredible fabric designer. The designers on ebay have come together to celebrate her successes and are featuring her new fabric line Andalucia for Michael Miller in our designs!

Hey Kristen!

I saw your darling skirt listed for $15,000 on Etsy and thought to myself, I haven't been to Kristen's blog in a while. Look at you go, girl! Even got the local news to come down and watch you stitch 'n bitch ;-) (At first glance, I thought the station was "WAHM"...) Nice stash, by the way.

Those wedding photos are beautiful. What a cool wedding. Must make your heart feel all warm.

And congratulations to your little ski team!

XO -N.

Yeah, remember the old "newbies" days! LMAO!!! Things were so simple back then! ;)
