Happy handmade holidays!

Christmas is only 13 days away!
I just picked up a bunch of supplies to
make gifts for our kids Grandparents!
Here are a few things I found on Pinterest
that gave me a few ideas...

I didn't pick up any bells or pipe cleaner but I
am definitely running back to the craft store today!
These are adorable!

We picked up plenty of jars, trees &
fake snow to make snow globes.
I also just listed a few of my limited edition
holiday headbands in my etsy shop!

We're going to the chapel & we're gonna get married...

I have been dying to share these photo's!
I have not talked a lot about my personal life
on my blog lately, mostly because the last
10 months have been a whirlwind!
I met the love of my life this past
January.. online after a few months of almost giving
up trying to meet someone that way!
We started emailing each other morning
& night. We then met & knew it was
love at first sight! We have not been apart since!
I moved to be with him
near Milwaukee.. & we are
the happiest we both have been
ever! He is my soul mate!
So... he surprised me at my show Handmade for
the holidays with a booth full of customers! He grabbed one
of my very best friends who was photographing the event, she had know idea why.
He got down on one knee & asked me to marry him!
I was so surprised! We had talked about getting married..
but I had no idea!

It all happened so fast! I remember him
shaking & I couldn't stop hugging him!

We both have been married before so
this time will be small & intimate with
our closest family & friends!
He gave me a white gold emerald ring (my birthstone)
which is so me & I absolutely love it!!

I seriously could not stop hugging him!!!
I am the luckiest girl in the world!

Moments before the engagement happened we
had this adorable photo taken with Santa at HFTH!
All photo's belong to one of my
very best friends Laurie of Laurie Marie Photography!

She blogged about it too.. check it out!
I am sure I will be posting lots of wedding inspired
post soon! ;) We are planning a small
outdoor wedding this summer!
Stay tuned!

Just for fun!

The other day I mentioned
to my boyfriend that we should put
a teepee in our living room!
His response... "sure"!
There are so many reasons why I love him
but that is one of them! ;)
Our conversation quickly
turned into lets make our own,
for our kids.. for Christmas!
Here are a few that I found on pinterest!
I definitely love the lace & the lights!

I am pretty sure we will have to add
feathers to our teepee! 

I love this one too & it has a tutorial!
I am excited!!!
Happy Monday!! xo!
p.s. I have been busy stocking stores &
getting ready for my holiday shows! Yikes!!

Arrow LOVE & thermos Rosies ♥

I recently purchased some new fabric!
I have a small obsession with arrow prints
& then THE thermos print!
Goodness I don't even know what to say..
I am in love!  ♥
I made some new Rosies & bowties out of these
prints (bowties/hair bows not shown)
Of course in dainty daisies true fashion
I must use up every piece of scrap
so I made the CUTEST
arrow button earrings!

I am working on stocking
shops then stock for the holiday
show that I have coming up!
I will not be at the market the next two Saturdays,
actually I may be done unless the last few Saturdays
in October are super warm!
Stay tuned! I will be filling up
my etsy shop & shops with
goodies for you to buy! :)
Happy Friday!! xo!

I didn't get a booth this year.

Have a great weekend!!! xo!

Fall flannel Rosie headbands!

I am in LOVE with my
new flannel Rosies! Perfect for Fall &

I have them available in 3 colors for now.
They are so soft & cozy! I
am pretty sure I will be wearing these all
the time!

Photo shoot LOVE!

I did a little photo shoot today with hopes
of getting my etsy shop restocked soon
so that you guys can buy from me online! Yay!
I am also VERY excited about my new coffee
cozies made of wool felt &
handmade wood buttons!
I just have bow cozies available for now but stay
tuned.. I need another design! ;)
My love of wool felt started with
these pretty headbands.. they are my own design
hand cut, sewn & attached to an elastic headband.
I can make them on hard bands as well!
They will be available in my etsy shop soon!

I also took some pictures of Rosies
that I will be listing!

I hope to have more products in there..
but for now it will start out with just a few!
Stay tuned! I am hoping to have them in there by
the end of the week. You can

Fall is on it's way!

I know it doesn't seem like it with
the 90+ degree weather we are
having here in Wisconsin but
Fall will be here before we know it!
I have been working on redesigning a lot of my
older designs. The new Fall Rosies are wider which I
love & are made with cute vintage inspired fabrics
not too mention fun colors perfect for Fall!

I also made a little change to my felt fascinators!
I love working with high quality felt
in such beautiful rich colors!
I will have both of these available
at the downtown Appleton Farmer's market this Saturday!
Back to work for me! xo!

I LOVE bows!

I guess it's really no secret that I love bows!
I was recently asked to restock
bow headbands that I sell at I like you
in Minneapolis (the cutest handmade shop btw).
I decided to redesign them a bit.. they
are a tad bigger & have a finished center!
I am so happy with the
way they turned out!
I am working on restocking all the shops
that carry my handmade wares this week.. then
I am hoping to get my etsy shop fully stocked!

I had a great time at the Craft-Apple-Ar yesterday!
Thank you all that came out & purchased something from me!
Happy Monday! xo!

Friday, August 23, 2013

Fall inspiration...

I am smitten over Lauren Moffatt's
  new Fall collection!
She is quickly becoming
one of my very favorites designers!
The weather has been on the cooler side
here in Wisconsin.. which is making me somewhat
excited for Fall..
not that I am ready for Summer to end!

I love the girly, yet woodsy & vintage looks of
her new designs. One of each please! (Ha!)
Have a great day! xo!
