Two Items of Business

1. The first item: I am now selling my stuff at a darling store in Pleasant Grove, UT, called Patina! It is located at 212 South Main St. Pleasant Grove, UT and could not be easier to find! The hours are Wed- Sat 11am -7pm. You can check out their site HERE for a sneek peak at the other artist's items. It is a very eclectic, funky, fun, beautiful, mix of a store. I loved going there and hope you'll stop by if you are in the area!

2. This Saturday from 9am-11am I am going to be selling my things in the Tanner Building on BYU Campus, in room 410 (new part of the building). There will be a few others selling their goods as well! My prices will be reduced for a "student" special...but of course it will apply to everyone!

I received this little photo from a past customer. This picture was taken in London and you can see the snap pouch I made sitting on the night stand. It made my day! I love seeing and hearing about what my items have been up to!

I just placed a couple HUGE orders of brand new fabrics! Lots of home decor weight fabrics, as well as my usual funky cotton fabrics.

I am also going to start offering baby minky blankets in my kid shop again. I ordered chocolate brown, retro pink, lime green, and lavender minky and have lots of really fun cottons to pair with them!

So make sure and check out my shops in the next couple weeks for lots of new items to be added!

vacation anyone?

I've been sewing and selling a lot of luggage tags lately. I've had a couple big custom orders that have been so fun! I love seeing all of the fabrics together in a cute little luggage tag. 

Going on a trip?  These luggage tags are  available in my shop...lots more to come!

While there is always a lot of THIS kind of craftiness that goes on in my house....

...I did decide to paint an older toy chest I had for my kids. My husband and I purchased it years ago from an unfinished wood store and it had many spots and dings and stains. 
So...I decided it cover it with one of my very favorite colors! 

And now I am so happy to look at it, and not so embarassed by it!  

Friday, May 1, 2009 stuff...

This spring season is also blooming some new ideas in my head. Here are a few new items I've added to my shops. What do you think?
This is a pillow cover that snaps closed and has ruffles along both sides.  

And here are some fabric birthday countdown chains! They are so cute!

And finally, a new type of pouch for's a pull through wristlet/clutch.  Perfect for a water bottle on a day trip or your daily essentials!

candy argyle kids - NEW ETSY SHOP!

That's right...I've decided to open ANOTHER Etsy shop!  I thought my old shop was too crammed. I felt like I offered too big of a variety of items. So in hopes that this will make it easier for customers to shop, I've transferred all my kid and baby items to my new shop!

It is called candy argyle kids and it is only getting going.  There will be lots more good stuff, coming soon! Come check it out!Publish Post

sweet tweets boutique

Here I am standing next to my display at a boutique I did this weekend. I didn't have the greatest of luck, but I figure it is good to get my name out there.  People can touch and feel and look at my stuff.  

I am doing another boutique in two weeks, and this one is supposed to be pretty good.  Good location, and lots of traffic.

One of my items is being shown on Your Heart Out! What a great website with amazing Utah finds! A big thank you goes out to my good friend's sister who recommended me! Thank you!

Pillow covers! I've made a few simple ones in the past, as custom orders. But I decided to get a little crazy and try out this new design. What do you think? They are listed in my shop now...more to come!

and the stockings were hung... the display window in Georgia! Here are a couple pictures of the stockings I made as a custom order back in November. The lady who purchased them owns a clothing boutique named Boogaloos, and she hung my stockings in the front window.

Yahoo! What a fun project it was, and it made my day to get these pictures!

baking time baby

Here is a pic of some mouth watering cinnamon rolls I made a couple days ago. What a perfect thing to go with the 15+ inches of snow we have outside!
