So much going on....

There is so much going on & so much new in the shop! I have been busy, busy, busy working on new things for the Craftacular! I am excited.. I have so many inspirations right now! ;)

I have a few new artists at the shop.. one is a young gal name Hannah a highschool Senior in Fond du lac who came into my shop wearing the most adorable reconstructed (sort of) tee! I fell in love with it right away & she made me a few for the shop! Yay! The pic. above is the most dramatic one.. which I love.. but there are more that are not so dramatic! The added stitching on the neckline is my fav.!

I also got in some wonderful handmade natural soap made by a good friend of mine from Appleton. Liz from Namaste'Creations! The shop smells soooo good!

I also have been a busy bee working on new clutches.. I am obsessed w/ bow's!

More on this tomorrow.. but Trick or Treat is Thursday afternoon w/ downtown businesses. I will be open til' 7:00! Come and say Hi and I may have a treat for you!

Have a great day!!!! xo!

Monday inspirations....

Oh my.. I almost fell off of my chair when I found this adorable wall paper. All the items are from Anthropologie. We really want to redo our kitchen/ dining room. I have a strange wall that divides our kitchen/ living room that is going to become the coolest chalkboard paint wall...but it is the dining room nook that bugs me! It is sooo small and I can't really rearrange furniture.. and I can't decide on paint colors so what about wall paper??? We love our dogs! ( Oh and the plaid drawer pulls I just bought to give our desk a makeover..) on my wish list is the owl hook & wall paper! xoxo!

btw.. Did you notice the polkadots??? I just thought I would jazz it up a bit and I found this cool site for free blog templates.

Happy Monday!

Fall leaves...

I was just getting ready to lay down with Max when I looked out our living room window and noticed all the bright beautiful leaves! I love the trees in our yard... it reminds me of back home.. while living in a city!

Take a little time to enjoy the beauty of Fall! :)

My son is still sick.. he seams to be feeling better today! I am closing the shop today and possibly tomorrow! I apologize for any inconvienience but my prioirities are to get him healthy again! I will for sure be open Friday & Saturday. I will let you know about Thursday by this time tomorrow!

Thank you for understanding!

I have decided to close the shop today! My son is still not 100% better & I am lucky enough to be able to stay home with him when needed. I apologize for any inconvienience.. and will let you know if he is better by tomorrow!

Please take note.. Market st. is now only accessible by Algoma st. repairs have started on the Grand Opera house! This will directly effect parking in front of my shop! Please continue to support my business as well as other Market st. businesses. It is going to be challenging for all of us!

On a happier note... I made a cute Owl bag for myself! I have not sewn for just "myself" in a long time! I looove how he turned out.. minus a few mishaps!
...and I love my hat.. hard to see in pics. but it is a cute black knit slouchy hat I bought on Etsy about a year ago! I love it more w/ my new short hair cut!

Have a great day!

A beautiful custom hair clip & a very special Happy Birthday.....

I had to show off this sweet hair clip I put together. Wed. afternoon a young college girl came in looking for a specific hair piece for a homecoming. She was in love with the headbands but wanted a clip with feathers.. well a little collaboration and voila a custom hair clip! I think I will make a few more for the shop! I hope she sends me pics. of her wearing it! It looked adorable in her hair!!!
