I was gone all day on a field trip to the little farmer with Max. It was freezing and we ended up leaving an hour early! It really was too bad.. today was beautiful! It is amazing how a day can make a difference. Here is a cute pic. I took!
I am working on new skirts and totes for the shop! This weekend is gallery walk!

I am so excited and happy to announce you may find my unique handmade hair accessories & one of a kind tote bags at Anthology on State St. downtown Madison Wi. Thank you so much To Sachi & Laura for carrying my goods in their beautiful store!
Most of you know by now I am having thoughts of closing my end of the retail store by Dec. 31st. I am feeling pretty good about the decision. It will once again allow me to work at home and have a pretty open schedule. I will still be selling at shows, online & the market for sure!
I have so much to do today! It is Jake's b-day and he is *31* today! Happy birthday honey! I also make him chili every year on his birthday it is a tradition we started from his first b-day we celebrated together. He loves it and won't actually eat chili until his birthday. It kind of kicks of the Fall season for us. (which is actually starting to feel a bit more like winter!)
The pictures are of some things I am working on... The totes shown are now at Anthology! The cute ornaments are a start for the shop & the craftacular. I looove them.. there will be lots of special gals in my family receiving these as gifts! ;)
Happy Monday! :)

I love scarves.. and I was looking for a cute fallish one! Well my friends I have found it.. and I looove it! I was in the mall the other day running some errands and stopped by the newly opened gap kids store (I'm sorry it is my weakness, especially if you have a boy!)and it is attached to the adult gap store. Oh my gosh I bought the cutest scarf and I have been wearing it for two days! I really really hate pics of myself so here ya go! I was going to link you to gap.com but they don't have the same scarves!
I have a busy day.. I have to take Buster to the vet and I have an appoinment this morning and I REALLY need to get some sewing done!
Havea great day!

I am thinking christmas already! I know I know.. but I have to get in gear for the Holiday craftacular. Things are a brewing in my mind and I still need to work on Jada's halloween costume! ;) (Luckily Max is going to be a Jedi and we found his costume last year at Target on clearance!)
I am bringing back the deer ornaments that I made last year.. only there is a catch.. cute funky papers.. gold and retro looking sparkly pipe cleaners.. and attached snowflake hair accessories! I started on them today after rearranging the store! Here is a sneak peek. I will show you more later after I actually finish a few!
I had a touch of the flu yesterday after having sick kids all weekend! I am feeling MUCH better today! I hope your week is off to a great start!

I have been working on these sweet headbands for my daintydaisies kids line(great for Mama's too!). I will only have them available here. I love the color combos! I am still trying to figure out my new camera & I know some of the pics are a little dark. Sorry! I am working on it! I also am at home today with a sick little one.. I hope your day is off to a good start! Have a great weekend!

I can hardly believe it but 9 years ago at 3:47am our little girl was born! After a many hours of induced labor and then a emergency c-section it was all worth it! Today she is *9* years old.
I am so proud of you Jada and I love you with all my heart! I hope you have the best day ever! (I don't have a scanner anymore.. but I took a pic of some pics of her when she was 4 and under.. so cute!) Happy Birthday!
I also have a new camera Yay! I am stil learning all the fun things it can do, but I love it so far!
Have a great day!

Lol! This pic really has nothing to do with anything except that I just shipped out a order for some hair clips and two of them were gnomes! :) Gnomes make me happy.. My Mom-mom had a house full of really cool old collectable gnomes. She passed away about 2 years ago and I miss her soo much! So gnomes remind me of her and they make me happy! With that being said not too much else is new! I am off to clean my sewing room & hopefully get reinspired!
I am also planning a give away.. something I have never done before but things have bee sooo negative so I am going to change that and do something positive. I will keep you posted on that!
Have a great day.. I am off to clean! :)

Can you believe it has been 1 year today since Misha and I joined our businesses and opened the doors to our shop at 317 Market st???? What a year it has been... a friendship .. turned partnership... turned one really cool unique shop if I must say so myself!
We got to be on Good day Wisconsin and had a few nice articles written about us by local folks. We had a movie filmed using our store front.. Johnny Depp came and went!! It has been one heck of a year!
It just really all comes down to a huge *THANK YOU*
to all of you who come in and say Hi to us and support our shop in anyway! You all mean the world to us.. really you do!
It started looking like this... and now is this! So cool! Happy Anniversary shop! :)
