Here are a few pictures from my boutique show I set up for tonight. This is the biggest show I have done, and there is some tough competition. Great stuff there! The house that the show is being held in is gorgeous!

if you're in the area...

I'm going to be a vendor at this show, it is in Herriman, UT. If you are in the area, stop on by and do some holiday shopping! I hear there will be some great things there!

New Item!

My amazingly talented mom designed these luggage tags, and was kind enough to show me how to make them. So on a quick weekend trip to WY to visit my parents, I whipped up a bunch of them.
They are so cute and so useful! They make a great gift, especially for that hard to get person, or someone you know who travels a lot.

They are stiff and hold their shape and have a plastic waterproof plastic to protect the id window. A standard size business card fits into the slot, and it very easy to change your info if you move.

Double snap closure making it extra secure!
Also, it makes locating your suitcase very easy!
Travel in style! Lots more fabrics to come, so check my shop soon to see more!

I was on the front page of Etsy today with this fun purse! Yay!

And, I broke 2,000 hearts! That means that over 2,000 people have 'hearted' me (marked me as a favorite). Happy day for me, especially since things have been a little slow lately.

Tip Junkie

If you've never heard of Tip Junkie you should check it out. A very fun place of hints and ideas on darling stuff. A friend of mine suggested that I be a part of their "Mom-preneur" Shop-a-thon they have going on for the next few months. So I payed and signed up in the "Purse" category.

I'm just putting in a plug to help support other mom's out there. I've looked around at lots of the sites already on the list and they are full of amazing items! So keep the Tip Junkie list close at hand as you do your holiday shopping!

custom cutie

Here are a couple pictures of a custom order I did. This little darling's mom and I were friends in high school, and have recently gotten back in touch. So fun!

I made her a skirt with a matching headband and clippie...and every little girl needs a purse too! I made a matching zipper tote for the mom as well, and now they can be stylin' together.

Thanks again, it was so fun to co-design this set!

2 year anniversary

Today, October 2, marks the two year anniversary of my first sale on Etsy. It was a black and white linen bag, and I sold it within ten minutes of posting. I am so thankful for Etsy, that it has given me a chance to develop and evolve as an artist.
Enjoy 15% off your total purchase in my shop!

boutique date

For all my local friends out there, the boutique show is October 24-25th. It is in Herriman, UT, and I'll get the exact times and address for you as it gets closer. I've been sewing my little guts out, but hope this stinking economy doesn't effect people's buying decision.

on a side note: I decided to pull my items from Indie Peddler. Things were moving very slowly and I just wasn't selling. It is hard for me to keep all the fabric and items in stock.

Chalk up a bad business move for me. You never know huh?
