I decided to hold off on sewing Monday (which is my sheduled sewing day) and do a little thrifting! I hit up a thrift store I have not been to in awhile and scored BIG TIME! :) I found sooo many cute vintage little owl things including the Dad mug.. oh my that will be a hard one to part w/ but it is for sale at my store!
I also bought the cutest sweater (it is from an online store that I love) that has owls knitted on it & it was $3.99! Adorable! (I will have to take pics of that soon!)

I have been updating my etsy shop with new headbands.. I will be adding purses and shirt skirts & possibly camp skirts soon! I am thinking about holding off on the wraps we'll see! I have sooo many new ideas... I am bursting!

Happy Wednesday!
The store is open today 10-3 come and say Hi!

Copy Cats SUCK!!!

I was reading a blog I read of a seller that I have worked with. I sell her "LA LA LOVE YOU" posters in my shop! I am feeling the need to stress to you & not you non-copy catters but people who meet me at the market or at a craft show or simply come into my store! IT IS NOT OK to copy my work.. yes get inspirations to come up with your own brilliant idea but not COPY! I sometimes don't sleep at night dreaming up new things to work on and create.. and yes in a designers world things are copied... but I do keep my items even my one of a kind wrap skirts very affordable!(I guarantee you, you would be saving NO money by trying to copy me!)This really just sinks my heart.. especially when I hear people ALL THE TIME say I can make that or you should totally make that for me! This is my LIFE my JOB and my DREAM and how I help contribute to my familys welfare! So if you still feel the need to copy me or someone elses work read this and see it is just not me that feels this way!

On a happy note.. I am on my way to the shop with lots of new stuff including three new corduroy wrap skirts.. some headbands and some sweet vintage finds! Fall hours kick in next week so I will let you know as soon as I post them! Also Gallery walk is this Saturday 6-9 pm! Stay tuned!

Have a great day!!! :)
