Exciting News

Drum roll please ............. my items are now being sold at the Farmer's Country Store in my town!!!!  I am so excited :)  One major accomplishment down!  I snapped this picture as I was getting my items prepared to show to the shop owner.  How cute is my cosmetic bag with my new tag?! 

Studio-in-Progress Update

Today I got the corner stand painted :)  As you can see, I am going for all white furniture in my studio.  I am so impatient that I almost tried painting the floor...but then I decided that I should wait until I get the walls painted.  It is really hard being patient!!

I also made some calls to some local shops about selling my items so now I need to make sure I get them ready.  I made these tags for my items today.  I am all about trying to be as professional and presentable as possible.  I purchase an awesome PDF file from WhiskerGraphics that I can edit to say what I want.  Hopefully the owner will love my items...and then I will definetly need to get my studio finished so I can start making larger quantities :)

This is a picture of the very begining of the making of my studio in my basement.  A little scary, isn't it :) 

This is my accomplishment so far...I painted the desk white :)  I did get these cool polka dot storage bins that I love and I am going to create my studio around those colors.  My current desk chair already matches by coincidence. 

It is going to be awesome when it is finally finished.  Right now I do all my sewing in my dining room and keep all my supplies in the tiny closet.  I hate having to take all my stuff in and out, and it always seems so crowded because the room is so small.  I will be able to get so much more done when I have my studio finished and it is all ready to go at any given moment.

Building My Dream

This week I finally opened my business banking account and filed my business taxes. I'm feeling so professional now and am supper gung-ho about my blooming business...which means my head is overflowing with ideas and dreams!

I am most excited about finally building my own studio in my basement.  With my sister's help, I got the area I plan on using cleaned up and things sorted out.  I hope to have it finished by the end of the month and I will be sure to share pictures :) 

Meanwhile, these are some pictures of studio's I love:

Spoiled there really such a thing?

Miss Lucy is modeling her new bed Grandpa made her.  Some say she is spoiled rotten...but I wonder if there is really such a thing :)    

I had to get another big bone because they both wanted the one I got for Harvey... they both want the new one :)

I Love this Travel Mug from sewZinski on Etsy.  Isn't Sarah talented?  She hand paints tons of these awesome colorful coffee mugs to share with the rest of us.  I doubt you could have a "bad day" using one of these!!

MS Support

My family will be walking in local MS Walk to support one of my High School Class Mates, Julie.  Julies was diagnosed with MS in 2008.

This week, all the proceeds from my shop will go to help fight MS.  If you would like to help support Julie and all the others suffering with MS, you can donate to her team.
