Nana's Designs

While on my short blogging hiatus, I have been spending some time helping my mom out. My mom, as I have mentioned before, is quite crafty. She does the basics: sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting. But she also does a lot of other things like painting, making pottery, weaving, glass melting (whatever you call that!), etc. You can imagine she has a lot of equipment!
For quite a while, there has been talk about her selling some of her creations...especially her quilts which are quite spectacular (she would insert something negative here)! Perhaps you can relate, but selling your own things can sometimes be quite a hurdle to get over. Someone can always do it better, and why would anyone buy your crafts (this is a bad attitute we are working on. :) )?? However, again and again people want to buy her things. She has sold quilts, woven scarves and recently some dolls and baby headbands.
So I've been helping her put together a site that will help her show her work. We used a blog since there are so many tools already in place with blogs and I know the ins and outs of blogger pretty well. Right now she just has dolls and baby headbands listed, but soon she will have quilts and probably other things too!
I think it's pretty cool. Check it out!
Introducing NanasDesigns.

There you go, Mom! Now it's public. :)
