Baby blue

I think I have decided to use my blog to amass a listing of the cutest stuff I find on Etsy - compendium, if you will. The first theme is: light blue, my favorite color!

Candy corn treasury!

I've been featured in a treasury - a first for me! It's super cute and fun, centered around candy corn. Please check it out and be sure to comment:


We're moving this week so I haven't been adding a lot to my store. I will also be aggressively looking for a job so I won't be able to commit as much time to crafting and Etsy. I will probably use this time to also come up with more idea for products for the shop. I would love your input on what you'd like to see me stock. I am hoping to branch out into more adult-oriented stuff....eventually changing my Etsy banner and avatar to suit a more mature look. Instead of focusing on just little girls, I hope to soon offer hair goodies for all ages. I would love to feature some rhinestone and glitzy bobby pins. Something elegant enough for a wedding maybe. The little kid stuff is just so fun to make but I want to reach a broader customer audience. My speciality is still my bow holders..I love how creative I can get with them. I'm working on a custom order right now that I hope to put up pictures of next week and offer the same design to others. Well, that's all for now. I need to stock up on some supplies so I'm off. Have a wonderful Monday! :)

Starting now!

Okay, I have definitely neglected this blog. I could have been posting for months now but haven't. It takes time and effort to craft, take pictures, and post everything to Etsy. That leaves little energy for blogging. But here I am! I promise to try and blog a few times a week - especially when I have new products up! Yesterday, I posted two pairs of cupcake clippies. I had to make some clippies to go along with my cupcake obsession of course. Here they are:

They are still available in my shop. I also have two lots of appliques/rhinestones/buttons/cabochons to destash. I'm offering them at far lower prices than others' destashes. Usually a destash lot of padded appliques costs 10 cents for each applique. But I am offering a lot of 75 for $6.50 and a lot of 50 at $4.00. It's a mix of this and that and I need it gone. I also need to restock on supplies here soon so that I can continue to create. Any suggestions for things you'd like to see in my shop? Don't hesitate to let me know!!
