Blythe headbands ...

I lowered the price & shipping costs on my Blythe headbands found here in my Etsy shop. I have a few more designs I need to get out of my head. I am struggling with free time to keep up on my merchandise. I may need to adjust shop hours to give me an extra day to sew. We'll see! My kids have a two hour delay with school today.. so I may be a little late to the shop considering they start right when I open!

Have a great day! Drive safe in all this crazy fog!

Pretty storage...

I took these pics awhile ago & have been meaning to share them! I hardly ever buy new things for storage solutions.. I kind of have always been that way. I recently cleaned and organized my sewing room & I realized how many vintage (empty) sewing baskets I had. I displayed them all together and they are filled with all sorts of thngs.. tags, business cards, vintage pins ect. They are very handy for storage and cute too! I love repurposing old things!

Thank you to everyone who came out for gallery walk & if you didn't make it no worries, Jaime's gubs are still available at the shop. There are a few cute bunnies & chicks for easter!

I am off to the Dr. to get tested for Strep! :( I have had a very sickly household and I woke up with a bad sore throat today.. which really bums me out! It is supposed to be sooo nice out & I wanted to get lots of sewing done! Uuugh!

Happy Monday to you all! Enjoy the sunshine (in Wisconsin anyhow!)
