Fabric Friday, III

ok guys! we're almost done. next week will be the last installment of my #fabricfriday posts because honestly, I'm terrible at keeping up with blogging and I know those of you who have actually commented on all the posts this past month (thank you very much!) are probably ready to be done as well. AMIRIGHT??? :)
thanks for hanging in with me! hope you enjoy the selection this week. I've found a few new fabrics that incorporate gold and when we launch some of our new line in april I'm going to add them to the shop. navy & gold and pink & gold are the two most paired colors, so I included two fabrics I loved that incorporate both. let me know what your favorite is in the comments below.

have a wonderful easter weekend everyone!

vendor tool kits!

 As I've mentioned before, Jacin (who was my very first internet-turned-real-life friend) has had some killer ideas/talents that she has graciously shared with me. see (above) and below:

1: vendor aprons (the very first version is pictured below along with a few other random things I've monogrammed for her).
2: white girl rapping. she knows what I'm talking about...and I won't be posting a picture.

3: vendor tool kits! they perfectly complement the aprons and/or can serve the purpose of having branded gear while keeping all your important things close at hand when you are on site at a meeting/wedding/workshop/photoshoot/insert your thing here.
4: she can capture me looking like this in a photo. TALENT I tell you.
(you're welcome for this picture, you guys)

I hope you all love the tool kits as much as we do. I'll be offering 20 during the preorder tomorrow at a discounted price ($100 + embroidery costs). We are working hard to add all the little extras that you might want/need to these bags, so bear with us over the next month as we finalize the offerings. The initial set will come with 20 exterior pockets of various sizes and has a large interior space with key fob to hold your bulkier gear. Tool kit dimensions are : 15" x 8.5" x 7". They will be up on my etsy site tomorrow morning at 10:00 am CST.

Can't wait to share them with you!

Fabric Friday, II

Anyone realize I didn't post last week? anyone...anyone...? ok, good. I'll make this short and sweet- I love lace! Let me know which is your favorite in the comments below and like I mentioned two weeks ago, if you comment every Friday you'll be entered to win a clutch in the fabric of your choice after my last post on April 1.  Good incentive, right? You can even go back and leave a comment now on the first post if you didn't do that before. :):)
Annnnd, for good measure, a picture of my baby and her cute little head covered in lace (hint- this one is my favorite!)

Fabric Friday!

I was supposed to start this two weeks ago but, you know, life! Let's just say I'm ready for spring to come to + winter = constant state of sickness. 

I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway relating to this new Fabric Friday idea. I'll be posting a set of 4 new fabrics each Friday through April 1. Here's how to enter: 

Each week I'll ask you guys to leave a comment letting me know which of the four fabrics featured (say that three times fast!) that day is your favorite. 

If you leave a comment every Friday you'll be entered to win a clutch in the fabric of your choice. 

I'll announce the winner Monday, April 4. Hope you guys enjoy the selection and look forward to hearing what you like the best.  

Today's showcase are the dainty florals below. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

simple (non candy) valentines.

here comes the target $1 spot for the win again.  walking by on my twice weekly trip there I spotted these cute little heart shaped glasses. adorable, right??

came home with my prize, opened up pinterest and typed in 'sunglasses valentine printable' and found exactly what I was looking for. you can download the printable I used from the Julep site HERE

:supplies needed:

heart glasses, or any kid size glasses you like (found some that are similar on amazon HERE)
paper (your choice)
stapler (or double sided tape)
cellphone bags (4" x 9.5" size from Joanns on sale, $0.99 for 25).

ps- I used plain printer paper for these, not cardstock - I haven't yet met a 4 year old who cares about paper weight...happy crafting!

simple baby hair bows!

{photo: Caroline Wasko}
I'm not a big fan of oversized bows on my little one, but these guys are small, adorable and so simple to make I had to share with you all. I found the original tutorial through pinterest and you can see the steps outlined on how to tie the bows here:

I love that there is no sewing involved and you can use easy to source materials. I purchased my bias tape and elastic from Joann's since I just needed basic colors, but Liz links to an etsy shop where you can source pattered bias tape that would make really fun bows. If your baby has hair, the bobby pin trick will work really well, as would a small clip. 

Alas, I make babies that don't start growing hair until after their first birthday so the only modification I made on these was to attach a length of elastic so that they can fit around their bald little heads.  To determine the length of elastic I measured Emme's head and cut the elastic 1/4" smaller. I don't like the elastic to be too tight and cause a crease, so I'd rather have to pull the bow out of her eyes every once in awhile. 
Glue the elastic onto the backside of the bow and voila, you're done! Can't wait to see these two little cousins in their matching Christmas outfits and bows next week. Happy Holidays to you all!

ordering for the holidays!

since time is of the essence in regards to getting our holiday wish lists together (HOW IS IT ALREADY MID NOVEMBER?!?!?) I decided what the heck and reused my shipping deadline outline from last year. less headache for me + quicker information to you all, my dear reader(s) = everyone stays happy. 

I did update the order/ship dates since we have been working hard (read: my digitizer is amazing!) to get our turnaround times under a month so that pretty wrapped oatmeal lace gifts can be found under the tree...  :):):) 
these dates are all based on PRIORITY MAIL shipping, so if you are willing to pay for express you have a couple days leeway on ordering. just a thought to keep in mind! you can click HERE to start shopping. happy holidays everyone! 

ps- any questions for me or if you have a logo you'd like to get quoted, email me at
