New at Sweet Twee Lab and a Holiday Pledge

Hello everyone!

I am getting back into the swing of things and am nice and motivated to bring fresh new goodies to the shop!

I've been out of commission for a while now. I knew raising a little one
would be hard work, but I guess I didn't know what hard work was until Ady
came along!

I have been working on this latest addition to the Sweet Twee Lab kits for
ages and am SO excited to share it with you all!

This is not a papercrafting kit, it's a handmade doll kit to make your own
cuddly snail (minus the slime).

Here is Sylvester the Snail. His favorite things are toadstools and
sunshine. Sometimes he looks up into the sky, grins, and imagines he can

You will receive all of the materials and instructions to bring Sylvester to
life. Some beginner sewing experience is assumed, but if you have any
questions I will be more than happy to help.

Sylvester measures 9.5-inches long and 9-inches tall. Much larger than your
regular garden snail.

Visit the store ( to order your snail today.

I've also been making wedding guest books like mad! They are SUPER cute! The brides just are so imaginative and really inspire me to create the most wonderful books! Here is my latest favorite:

Remember, there's no extra shipping after you purchase one item, so fill up
your box!

Ady is almost a year now, and is cruising around getting into EVERYTHING!
I've included a picture of her too. :)

Finally, I want to share my pledge to have a fun and successful holiday this year. Etsy is having a holiday boot camp, and one of the first things I vow to do is to take the pledge. So, without further ado...

I, Elke, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!

I hope you all are doing awesome!
