Welcome to my blog which gives a peek at the "behind the scenes" of my shop over on Etsy, Ji Babu. I create a little of this and that, trying to reuse or repurpose items that otherwise might have ended up in the garbage. I love hearing from my fans, so drop me a note to say Hi or if you have any questions - ji.babu.shop [at] gmail [dot] com

So, first post... finally!

Yeepers, it's taken me forever.  I keep getting behind with work due to at home illnesses and what not.  Spring is supposed to be here, yet yesterday Rochester had snow.  Oh well, eventually it shall arrive.

Ji Babu officially debuted its wares at the Hodge Podge Arts + Crafts Show at Roberts Wesleyan College a couple of days ago.  Although I also was showing work from Sarah G. Ortiz Photography, I only sold Ji Babu merchandise, which was neat.

The Etsy shop remains empty at present since I am building inventory for MayDay Underground, a huge Indie Market here in Rochester that's happening in less than 2 weeks.  Once that's over, I can concentrate on listing some items online.  For now, keep in touch here, and check out the Facebook page - link to the right!

As an intro to what's been happening behind the scenes, check out the photos below.

I discovered I had kept many, many bottlecaps over the year.

Solution: Paint them for magnets!

Some random old children's books and paper from my saved supply added some funk.

Found the perfect storage and display at a garage sale.

And ta-da!  Several of these sold the other night, so now onto making more!
