It's been far too long since I've blogged and I have missed it. My life has been changing a lot...in good ways.
But I'm coming back to the blogging world, looking forward to catching up with you and all my other blog buddies. I am jumping in with both feet, not just selling fabric, but re-launching my vintage-inspired children's clothing line, "Sew Sweet."
I first started embroidering on children's clothes when my eldest daughter was a baby and she is already eight! I can't believe it's been that long! I had so much fun dressing her in beautiful boutique clothing, but my budget couldn't acomodate more than the occasional boutique purchase. So, as they say, necessity became the mother of invention and I began making my own little pieces for my daughter to wear.
After a number of people asking where I got whatever it was my daughter was wearing, therefore finding out it wasn't just me that thought the pieces I made were pretty :), I decided to go out on a limb and try selling some of what I was making. I started on eBay and then gradually moved to etsy. It was after I started selling on etsy that I found blogs and decided to try making one of my own. I was shocked when people started visiting me and leaving comments!
Over the last couple years, I have made and sold hundreds of items, but perhaps more importantly, I have many dear friends, some of which I know will be life-long friends. I have been going through a divorce, making a home for my children and I and pretty much SURVIVING.
But it's time to emerge from my "cave" and get connected again. I've missed it. I think I need it.
So I'm starting by writing this post and re-opening my Sew Sweet etsy shoppe in time for Spring shopping. The pictures below are of some of the clothes I'll be custom-creating for Spring. I'm still running my website, Confections Fabric, as well as my etsy shoppe by the same name. So if you see something you like, let me know! I'm excited to fire up my sewing machine and get out my needle and embroidery thread.
But most of all, I'm excited to get re-acquainted with YOU.
