Newbie Monday - Forum Finds

A little over a week ago, I came across a forum thread in which newbies were helping and encouraging each other. It helped me find some great sellers, so I thought I would share a few of them with you all.


PicksAndPosies is the OP of the forum thread, and she gets a feature for being the one who started it all. Seriously, from what I can see, quite a few of the newbies has gotten a sale from this thread (and I think I might be able to count myself in), so a heartfelt “Thanks” to you!

She has some lovely wreaths and bird houses in her store, many of them perfect for the upcoming fall season. I love this vibrant Color Me Glad wreath made out of Crayola crayons! It’s just the thing for back-to-school, but I can also see it hanging year-round in a playroom for a little one.

I also like The Lavender Lovenest, an adorable little birdhouse to make your home feel all cozy and romantic.


TheQuiltedHouse has some truly unique items in her store! I really love this Tic Tac Toe Anyone, which folds up and has pockets for you to store the Xs and Os, so that you can take it anywhere. A perfect item to bring along on long car trips with kids, and as she points out, an eco-friendly option to paper!

I also have never seen a quilted greeting card, whether it says, Thank You, I love you, or Happy Birthday! If you want to make a statement, then these cards are definitely going to stand out from the rest.


My final newbie for this week has the cutest T-shirts for little boys and girls! Being a mother of a little boy, I very much appreciate the great selection of boy's shirts, which tend to get completely outnumbered by girl's in most cases!

I had a hard time deciding which item to feature, but finally settled on the Mr Roboto Tee. It has a bit of a retro feel, like many of her other products. Some of the T-shirts even come with a matching toy, like the Retro Rocket Set.

Her softies, which she calls Lovies and Friends, are also very cute and can't be missed. The Rotkappchen is my favorite out of the 5 currently for sale.

If you are a newbie, be sure to check out the critique thread. It's a great way to get some constructive criticisms as well as a fantastic place to connect with other newbies!
