I'M STEPPING OUT OF MY BOX........


.....and specializing. That's right, I'm about to start a new venture. Before long, I will be adding something new (and pretty!) to my website (shabbycozycottage.com). But for now I think I'll keep it a secret, and the first one to guess what it is or the one who comes closest will receive one absolutely free. Here's a hint for you: they will be handcrafted and one-of-a-kind. So, while I will still have products in several categories, I have decided to step out of my box and create my own little niche. Be sure to check back and see what I've come up with!

If you would like to get in on the give-away just leave your guess in a comment to this post.

Can't wait to see what your surprise is. But - I am not good at guessing. I have no clue!

Sweet Necessi-Teas said...

I'm wondering if it's aprons... But whatever it is, I'm sure it will be fabulous! Can't wait for the big reveal!

Pink hugs, Karen

Roxie said...

Ummmmmmm can I have 2 guesses? I'm going to guess that you are making candles? Or.....are you painting?

Whatever it is Deb, I wish you much success with your new niche, I know it will be great!

Dianne said...

Ok, Debbie, I'm guessing that you are going to create some beautiful, one-of-a-kind, ornate BOXES! I don't know what kind of boxes, maybe jewelry boxes or storage boxes, or trinket boxes, but I'm guessing from your post that it's boxes of some kind! And I know they will be very special so I can't wait to see them!

hmmmmm, this could be tough because I know you do a lot of neat things....let me mull this over a bit.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Debbie, Popping over from reading the forums at MMP. I don't know what your niche will be but I bet it will be something totally fun and unique.

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage said...

Hmmm ~ Is it a wallet ?
Debbie ~ You have to tell us soon~

Debbie said...

Thanks ladies....lots of good guesses, but no one gets the prize yet. Roxie and Dianne did closest b/c my product will involve some painting and it will be used to store something specific. Feel free to post as many guesses as you would like as more hints come along.

Pink hugs!

Cathy said...

O.K. miss cozy, I think it's picture frames.

GEORGIA said...

My Pink Boutique said...

Hi Debbie! :) While a few more clues would be helpful, I'm going to have to say that you're doing aprons. Can't wait to see for sure though!

Debbie said...

Someone who left a comment is getting verrrry close to guessing what my new product will be. :D I'm working like crazy trying to get four of them ready to list on my site before I let the cat out of the bag though. I have #2 almost finished now.

Hugs to all,
Debbie

I'm clueless..kinda..but I'm thinking jewelry box of some sort!!! Valentines...hmmmm I have Jewlery on my mind!! LOL

Le-Chat said...

Ah Deb, it sure is fun letting your readers sweat, isn't it? First I thought your sweet Beau inspired you to make doggie beds, but if it's painted and stores something specific a jewelry box comes in mind, but since that answer has already been given... pencil holders maybe?

Le-Chat said...

Or make-up boxes?

Great song choices for the Valentine season ... stirs many memories as a little girl.

Ellenay Designs said...

Hi Debbie,

I'm guessing painted recipe boxes. Thanks for stopping by and entering my give-away! Hope I win yours too!

ThriftShopRomantic said...

Okay, let's see-- how about altered art luggage (for storage purposes)?

Or vintage look jack-in-the-boxes?...

Ah, well, whatever it will be, it will be marvelous, I'm sure.

Hi Debbie,
I don't have a clue, but here are my uneducated guesses.
Hand painted jars? waste baskets? canisters? cosmetic bags? tote bags?

Love your blog and especially the music. I love Love LOVE Nat Cole and Erroll Garner.
Thanks

HI Debbie,
Well I can't think of a single creative idea for your new product line. I do have to agree my thoughts are leaning toward jewelry box.

Don't keep us guessing too long!

Debbie said...

Okay, one LAST hint....Georgia and Lori (ellenay) are getting verrry close to guessing! I'll leave this on a couple more days to give everyone another chance.

XOXO,
Debbie

Cathy said...

a holder for coupons?

Karen & Eileen said...

Hi Debbie! You are sure having fun keeping all of us guessing! Good Job!
Ok....I think you are working on a line of recipe holders. Not boxes, but the books with pockets to insert all the billions of recipes we all have floating around in our drawers! I know I need one!
