Zizi Rho Designs

Zizi Rho Designs is my Etsy shop. (It's also the business I do the farmers markets as.)

At the moment, the shop looks pretty pitiful. I'm low on stock. I've been making a lot of jellyfish to order... 

I just finished this one. The colors were picked by the customer.
...while planning some new designs. I'll have some new patterns coming soon...

While I have you here, I could use your opinion: 

What do you think of this donut? Should I make some for my shop? 


Do you think anyone would want these water bottle sleeves? 


In case you were wondering, the letters at the bottom of each of the A to Z posts are gift card holders. Some are still available. (The ones that have homes can be reproduced, though.)

Okay, and I'm done. Whew. Another A to Z complete.

How'd you do? Were you doing the challenge? Did you make it through?

There will be no new post on Monday. I need a break. I'll be back on Tuesday with a new "what if?"

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  2. Nice! The donuts are cute and the water bottle cozies very pretty. I'm also tickled to know that the letters are gift card holders. Silly me, I just thought they were done for the challenge. I'm glad to have met this challenge as well as a novel writing challenge for April. Whew! It will be nice to just write and blog at a less frantic pace without having to keep track of word counts.

    1. The gift card holders' journey to existence have been thoroughly explained on this blog, but a while ago. It started here: https://lawsofgravity.blogspot.com/2014/10/some-little-things.html

  3. I like your doughnut. I've got a pattern book (knitting) which has knit doughnuts and they use them as sweet holders as well as having little pop up toys in them. I've also seen something similar used as a pincushion as well.

    Well done on completing the challenge again. :-)

  4. I had never noticed the zipper on top before! All this time I thought you were just being clever making a square for each letter! Lol The jellyfish turned out adorable. Love the pattern in the ladies beanie. The donut is precious! The sleeves look like soemthing that'd be nice, especially places were is gets real cold, so your hand isn't cold holding your bottle outdoors. Down here where we live, I get hot just thinking about yarn!

    I'm so tired of reading, thinking, posting. I really enjoyed the A to Z this year but am glad it is over.😌

  6. I know it would be work, but I wonder if baby crocheted giraffes (soft and huggable) would sell, while our April the Giraffe is still in the news. The people who are her fans are buying giraffe "stuff" of all types. I also like the donuts, perhaps, as another commenter suggested, as a pincushion. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I bet they would sell, but for me I'd have to find a pattern. By the time I figure out how to do an amigurumi giraffe on my own, the "baby" will be three years old.

  7. The donut is cute. I can see people buying it as a dog toy (although, I shudder at that because it's handmade people! That took love and care.)

    Congrats on finishing the challenge.

    1. That would be great if I could figure out a way to stuff it that won't get eaten by the dog...

  8. Hi Liz - well done on fitting the A-Z into your school schedule and the Etsy shop. Love the donut, and the card holders ... I hadn't realised their use - thought there must be a specific use idea. How about sunglasses case/s ... I don't know your market ... and in fact I couldn't answer here either! You're certainly in the creativity field ... cheers Hilary

  11. Your jellyfish are always so cute.
    Enjoy your day of rest!

  12. YAY! Congrats on making it from A-Z! You are a survivor!

    Also, like the new designs for the shop. The donut is adorable and who doesn't want a pretty "cozy" for their water bottle? Wonder if you could knit (or would want to knit) emoji pillows; those seem to be really popular among kids these days. Or at least on the east coast they are; sometimes I feel like California is a whole different world…

    1. Emoji pillows are big here, too. I've thought about it. Not sure how to make it work. (And the length of time it takes me to design anything makes me wonder if they'll still be in style by the time I figure it out.)
