Amigurumi books

So I went to the library yesterday, and guess what I found? Those two books above!! I'm super psyched :D I was going to buy Creepy Crochet a looong time ago, but I guess I got lucky. Well, I'm off to go read them now :)
Don't forget about our giveaway! Look at our previous posts and you'll find it :)

I bought all new stuff for adorable packaging (my old packaging was not cute enough). I bought pink lunch bags, tissue paper, stickers, etc. Now, I'm just waiting for someone to buy so I can package!!!! ^.^

I found this great website with so many amazing packaging ideas that may be useful for all you Etsy sellers: Nice Package. They havent updated in a few weeks, but just browse through the old posts and it's very inspiring :)

Do you know any other websites with great packaging tips and ideas? Just comment with the link and it'll surely be posted on a 2nd ONL blog post :D

Also, don't forget about our first GIVEAWAY! You won't want to miss that!

Post Christmas Slump & Sketches

Is anyone else experiencing a post Christmas slump? Not one sale after the holidays, and I have alot of Valentine's amigurumi I need to sell. I've been thining that maybe if I put up a promotion, like Free gift with purchase, but ooohh weeellppp xD
On another note, this is a question directed toward amigurumi makers: do you sketch your amigurumi before crocheting it? I've seen alot of Etsy shops with their amigurumi sketch, and on blogs, too! I'm just curious about it. Is it really helpful, or just to help shape your amigurumi? I want to try it, but Im horrible at sketching :P
