Korkers, korkers and more korkers!

I spent pretty much the entirety of my day yesterday making korker bows! Whew! I think I almost have enough for the booth now. I'm sure I could have more but I didn't want to make so many that I end up with korkers out my ears with no little girls to put them on. (I don't think my boys will really want to wear them!) I'm not exactly sure how much is enough but seeing how this is my first booth I want to have a little bit of everything. As of now here are the korkers I have: school spirit (Belle Vernon, Elizabeth or Charleroi, Monessen), Christmas (2 options), Halloween, Black & Gold (GOOO Steelers!), and various multi colored bows as well.

Next up....more mini clips!

August Fun Fest at Cedar Creek!

I am officially registered to have a table/booth at the August Fun Fest at Cedar Creek on Sunday, August 8! I'm excited and nervous at the same time! This will be my first show and I'm sure it will mostly be a learning experience but I'm hoping it will be profitable as well! I have been offered plenty of help and my friend Amanda has offered to sit with me. It will be nice to have a friend with me thru out the day for help and support!
I have started brainstorming on what to do for my display as well as what to actually take with me to sell. I will definitely have my bows as well as a few pieces of jewelry. I contemplated taking purses but that will depend on if I have time to make some before the show.
If you are local and are free on Sunday, August 8 you should come see me! The Fun Fest is just that....lots of FUN for the whole family. There will be games, rides, yummy food, a car show and of course ME! Hope to see you there!!

Custom Order - Large Tote Bag

Today I completed a custom order tote bag. My customer requested something large to use as their carry-on for a flight they will be taking in August. I created the pattern myself and made the tote pictured below. There are pockets inside on both sides. The inside fabric is the same as the top of the flap. The opposite side of the flap is the bird material. I'm really happy with how this turned out. I loved the fabric and it's great to see it as a finished product!

Hair Bows


Here are a few photos of some of my jewelry pieces. I have a few pieces in stock but most of the items I have made have been custom orders. If you see something you like and would like something similar please let me know! Also, if you are interested in a custom order of your own I would be happy to create something just for you!

Purses, Tote Bags and Such

All of my purses are custom order. I do not currently carry any premade purses or totes. If you are interested in a custom purse or tote please contact me! Prices start at $45.

Here are some photos of purses, tote bags, and diaper bags I have made.
