I am a member of Etsy and I have two stores: and AnnieKDesigns sells home fashions such as placemats, tablerunners and pillows. My busiest time of year is Fall and Christmas. I also happen to make tree skirts. Sometimes I get tired of sewing around and around but I think they are beautiful and very unique!

CodysCloset features items for your dog such as collars in all sizes and dog bone placemats. I will be adding some dog coats and coordinating scarves, hats and mittens for dogs owners or really anyone starting in September.

On Etsy we have street teams. I belong to CCCOE, California Crafters Club of Etsy. It is a large group of about 200 members and if it can be made, these outstanding artisans make it. Some of the jewelry artisans are to die for! Their work is original and has been purchased by stars and worn on TV. There are fabric artists such as myself, knitters, bag makers, hand dyed silk scarves, origami peace cranes and everyone else in between from A to Z. This is a very talented team!

Every month we have a monthly challenge and for July, we have chosen Christmas in July. We have about 30-40 entries every month. If would like to see the entries, go to We also encourage everyone to vote and if you vote and have a shop on Etsy, you get a slot in a treasury – just for voting!

If you are interested in seeing more outstanding CCCOE entries, search under tags, descriptions and type “cccoe” or “cccoe Christmas in July.”
