After not really having any sales from my shop for months, I am happy that things seem to be picking up a little. It is unfortunate that one of the items that I sold this month was reported MIA by the buyer, and I ended up having to refund her money. That was the autumn magnet board, too, so I am pretty broken-hearted about it, seeing that I almost didn't put the thing up for sale at all, because I liked it so much. Plus, I don't understand how something in a 24" x 24" x 3" box goes missing. But that's how life is, I guess.

Anyway, I had a breakthrough in making tiny pom poms for my mini Jayne hats this morning. In case you don't remember, the previous incarnations looked like this:

Though cute, in a Ma Cobb kind of way, I really wanted them to be more pom pom like. And finally, after constructing my own 3/4" pom pom maker (and yes, I know they sell pom pom makers in that size, but they are like $6, and I have only seen them online), they now look like this:

Pretty cunning, don't ya think?

Instructions are right here.
