Yummy New Stuff!

Just a few new yummies in the don't drool on the merchandise! ;) You can find them HERE.

A new Fabricaholic Bag...these are so fun to put together and they don't last long in the shoppe, so hurry over if you want one!

A cupcake applique kit...this is the same cupcake I offer in my Yummy Pocket Pillow Kit, but this is just the cupcake. You can put it on a pillow, a t-shirt, or whatever your heart desires! You get the top and bottom of the cupcake (pre-treated to not fray!), a circle of ticking to make the "yo-yo," matching embroidery thread on cute little wooden spools and even a needle. I have COMPLETE instruction (with photos of me doing EACH step) available if you purchase this kit.
Delicious pink pom-pom trim. I love this stuff and use it a lot, so I thought I'd offer it to you, too.

A yummy bundle of aqua goodness...

A Sneak Peek

I've been hinting a bit here and there about some new things I've been doing lately. I'm working on a fabric book for a dear customer (still!) that is nearly done...can't wait to show it to you. But here and there, over the last few months, I've been working on something else...something totally different than I've ever done before. I've been working on some altered clothing pieces and it has been such a joy. I've got a lot more up my sleeve and will give you more info soon, but I couldn't resist showing you a few "sneak peeks" from the photo shoot today. Thank you to my sister, Laura Joy, who is the beautiful blonde model! :) And thank you to my sister, Whitney, who edited/texturized these photos. And last but not least, thank you to my husband, James, who took the photos! :)A Sneak Peek

Bricks and mortar make a house,
but the laughter of children makes a home.
- Irish Proverb

But what is happiness
Except the simple harmony
Between a woman and the life she leads.
-Albert Camus

No one has ever had an idea in a dress suit.
-Sir Frederick G. Banting

Beauty of whatever kind,
In its supreme development,
Invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears. – Edgar Allan Poe

I am beginning to learn
that it is the sweet, simple things of life
which are the real ones after all.
–Laura Ingalls Wilder
