The snow just keeps on a coming and it is REALLY HARD to get inspired for spring. I had some errands to run today and I decided to get a new frame for my new Black Apple print... Oh how I love little red riding hood ;) (I will share that later) and I also purchased a few new beads to make some spring inspired earrings for the shop. Yesterday during snowstorm Isabella (I hate the fact that these terrible storms have names) we pretty much hybernated that was all we could do, I got caught up on my laundry, experimented with a new recipe and found a bit of sewing time and made up a new skirt! :) I hear from people all the time that I should make my little girl skirts for adults... so here it is my version of an adult daisy kids skirt! It kind of has that ballerina tutu look... I tried it on with leggings, woohoo super cute! I will have more soon! Hope your Monday is a little less snowy then mine! :)

I barely made it to Max's school then to the shop for an hour and 1/2 when we decided to close early! (sorry and thank you to all who came out in the morning)
It looks really pretty this morning though... check out the view of the end of my driveway soon my lil' beetle won't be able to see over those mountains! Lol!
Here is a picture (yet fuzzy picture) of the adorable gift bags I made up for the kids yesterday. Stay warm and enjoy your day!

On monday I had to drive into Appleton to drop our tax paper work to our accountant and I had the urge to go thrifting. Well I did and I am so glad I did it was on of my better thrifting adventures. A newly remodeled thrift store and I spent under $20.00 Yay! I got the coolest vintage fabrics and a sweet birdie candle holder, and the dishes as well as some easter eggs(not shown) n such for displays at the shop. Have a great Wed.!

I have been working on dolls for awhile and brought in two test dolls over the holiday season! It is kind of neat for me to be making dolls because believe it or not that is how daintydaisies started... making primitive dolls. I have had a lot of fun creating these gals and so has my daughter,my first custom order, from hair like hers to eye color, dress and tights :)
I have on more on the way and then they are up for sale at the store $25.00 each and one of a kind! (no glue and hand sewn, each with a fleece scarf)

All I can say is BBRRRRRRR !!! It is sooo cold here! -8 degrees and that is not with the windchill factor!
On a warmer note.. I have been looking for something to do with these cute containers that I have left over from my coffee(hmmhmm I go thru alot of them and it seems so wasteful!)..and I came up with these! I looove them! Each tin comes with a cute set of 6 magnets as well as a lid (that is on the bottom),they would make a great gift. They will be at the store tomorrow!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out for the valentine craftacular as always I had a blast and made a few new friends ;) I will have new goodies to post soon(clothing goodies that is)
I am off to my accountant~ Yay! I am done with my taxes(well so far)Big huge weight off my shoulders! ;) Have a great day and stay warm!
