Here come the Holidays! Part 2

It's been a hectic weekend, perfect follow up to last week and probably indicative of the weeks to come. Busy is good, right? I am the kids of person who fails at boredom, I can't handle it, if it gets quiet I start building to do lists and planning projects. That said, you'd think my house was decorated and my laundry didn't pile up but that's where it all breaks down for me, because I like doing fun stuff, things I want to do, not necessarily all those things that need to be done. As I was preparing for a craft show last month slowly working through the list of projects I had planned to bring with me a friend suggested baby doll carriers. Since I had a lot of things on my list already it seemed like a perfect opportunity to find a pattern and knock out a couple of doll carriers to take with me to the show. Well I was torn between some of the patterns I found on Pinterest, I liked the Oliver & S version but I didn't have time to order it so lo and behold I drew my own version based on the Oliver & S style, with a few modifications based on how my kids favourite creatures fit.

They weren't a fast seller at the craft show, in part I think because they were and unexpected challenge to display but since then they have started to move on Etsy and I'm thinking for any gifts you need to send oversea's they can't be beat because they are lightweight and pack flat.

Here are a few of the style's available, of course I have a few more fabrics in the works...maybe in time for my next craft show. :)

Now I just have to decide on which fabrics to use for my own kids Christmas presents this year!

Here come the Holidays! Part 1

Wow! There is nothing like one of those weeks where you are flat out busy, laid up with the flu and swimming in projects to remind you that the holiday's are just around the corner. This has been that week for me. Somehow I've managed to recover from the flu and still produce some great new items in time for the holidays. If you're looking for some fun stocking stuffers or some teachers gifts check out the new tea wallets on the site, there are new ones coming (as in I have them made just need to catch up on my photography!)

Tomorrow I will be featuring some of the kids products I have available and be sure to stop by Wednesday for details on our holiday weekend promotions!
