Welcome to my very first blog post ever!

Please feel free to leave a comment - I'd love to hear from you!
I promise to try to keep my blog up to date and interesting. Is there anything worse than an abandoned blog? My lovely website and this blog were designed for me by the very talented and friendly Cathy from Avalon Rose Designs. I highly recommend her services if you are in the market for a new web design or even a little freshening up!

A little about me:

I am a stay at home mom of 2 great little ones ages 6 & 3. Those of you who know me from ebay know that I have sold under their names there for the last 6 years www.stores.ebay.com/sydney-james
I mainly sell fabric and trim on that site. It is mainly excess and remnants from the projects I have been working on. Its great if you are looking for a particular vintage textile, retired favorite or new fabric you just cant seem to find. Stop in- I just may have it!
I have recently decided to reduce my inventory and sell more than ever on ebay so that I can concentrate more on my newest venture, my website:

It is here that I will keep you posted on the latest products, project ideas and some inspiring stories! Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks for taking a minute to stop in!

Darling blog. Found you through Cathy's blog, she designed mine as well. Love your quote the secret to getting ahead is getting started, a motto I'll have to remind myself of once in a while.

I'll have to check you out on eBay.
