Gift sets

I spend quite alot of time trying to figure out just what people type in when they are shopping on Etsy .

I notice some people have cute names for their items , while others are very simple and straight forward. I myself stop and think if I was looking for something what words would I use. With this in mind over the next week or so I will be revamping my shop. I am adding a section for gift sets.  Now that can be a sweater , hat and booties ( which by the way makes a great sgower gift) or maybe a Boston Terrier hat with matching lovey blanket. Maybe a spa set with cotton slippers, washcloth and face scrubbies. I am getting all this worked out. There will also be some new items added to the fox and a new dalmation. I am hoping the dalmation gets as much attention as the Boston Terrier has.

I will also begin gearing up for Halloween ( yes, I know it is only June) Think sensible costume alternatives. Match an animal hat with a pair of sweats and think of all the wear they can get out of both. The hat can be worn all winter and the sweats will keep them snug on those chilly days. 

watch for the new additions and changes to Grammas Gifts on Etsy and facebook

Changing things up

Recently we have had some "things" come up with the #1 great grandson. Etsy shop so that I can raise some money to get him some of the things that will make his life easier and make more sense. He has a preliminary diagnosis of Aspergers and we where all really thrown. I have been reading all I can get my hands on while crocheting to get orders out. I love my customers, they are not seasonal shoppers but have seen all the ways my hats and such can be used throughout the year. Thank you to all of you! I am going to be adding some new items that can be added to other items to make great baby shower gift sets. Blankets that match, booties, lovies and all with the option of color choices. There will also be a sale page , there I will discount items that I no longer will be making . I would also love to hear what kinds of hats you would like to see, designing the animals is so much fun for me and it combines two of my favorite things...drawing and crochet. I am hoping to add a page with sensory items such as weighted blankets or lap mats, and even at my grandsons request a weighted boa to wrap around when life seems overwhelming.  Keep watching.
Because of this I have decided to change things up a bit in my
I am off to organize my thoughts and get busy.
