Just added this sweet skirt to my etsy shop! This skirt is being discounted because it is slightly imperfect. Yup.. I even make mistakes! :)
The skirt started it's life as a longer version of my wraps and then whoops got caught in my serger.. I did manage to salvage it. It is soooo beautiful! The measurements are slightly bigger than the average short skirt because I had to recut the waist. Other than that it is still a beautiful unique skirt & you probalbly wouldn't of noticed if I didn't say anything. (but I am honest like that!)

Happy Thursday! :)

Something crafty for ya...

I have been trying to dream up some new things for the *New* shop! I have a new skirt style I will be working on and a few other things that I have yet to attempt. I did however create these cute headbands with some wonderful colors of felt I had. I think they are really sweet and so cute in your hair. :) I am gonna be sewing up a storm today while jammin' out to some good music! (The kids are finally back in school!) I love my kids.. but I don't get much done when they are home! Back to work for me!
Have a great day!

Exciting news.....

I have some exciting news for you all( well anyone that reads this anyway)! I am re-opening my store front. I just rented a cute space on the other side of town. I will be able to get in there in about two weeks.. but then I need to paint and address the carpet and get it all just perfect. I am hoping to open by mid March.

The new shop will be very different from my shop downtown. I am sooo excited and have sooo many ideas and not to mention fabulous local and not so local artists joining me. The new shop will be my version of urban meets vintage and mostly handmade. ;) I will keep you posted on the progress and as soon as I actually get the keys I will start posting some pics.

Stay tuned!
Have a great weekend!

Color week: Stripes & plaids

Today is the final day of Color week started by Leya over at Curious bird. I had fun it was the first time I have participated in any of these bloggy things out there. I really enjoyed the colors especially this time of year! We have seen so much snow this winter color is more than welcome!

Today is freezing cold the kids are off of school again. It is fun having them home & I really miss that! Jada made us all french toast this morning. She is quite the cook!

Todays colors was not hard at all. I looooove plaid. Some newly thrifted vintage fabrics & my purse handmade by moi, that I just love.

I am hoping to get a few skirts in my etsy shop today so check back a little later! The one I finished last night is soooo cute! ;)

Stay Warm!

♥ Valentine hair clips! ♥

Valentine hair clips are showing up in the shop. I have more I will be posting so keep checkin' back. My sewing machine broke yesterday as I was finishing up a few things.... so needless to say there will not be any new skirts or totes until next week. Sorry! I do have quite a few things I am mailing off today to Madison, new purses & accessories for Anthology. :)

On a sad note Jake's Grandpa passed away yesterday. We are really sad & will miss him terribly. He was a very neat and caring man, especially to our kids.. They love Grandpa Ray! We will be heading out of town at the end of the week for his funeral. I will probalbly be a bit quiet here until next week.

I'll be in touch!

I am sooo excited for this new year! I feel like I am off to a fresh start. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We did and I am enjoying every bit of just hanging out with my kids and my husband before they are all back to school & work on Monday! We have been quite busy.. sledding, iceskating & hanging with family in Eau Claire!

I really have one new years goal this year and that is to slow down and enjoy what I have, meaning my family, business all of it.. just life in general! oh and to stay organized (meaning my sewing room)!LoL! 2008 was such a crazy year for me.

I am ready for 2009!I have totally reorganized my sewing room & I just ordered some amazing new fabrics so that I can get some of the ideas out of my head.hehe! I also will be changing my shipping in my etsy shop to international shipping as well.

I hope you all are getting off to a good start in 2009.. I will have lots of new things to post soon!
