Have You Heard?

BACK UP AND RUNNING! Accepting orders for end of February and Beyond! Get them in! We will be moving across country in May.

The Giveaway went great. So fun to hear of all the new babies that are expected this year. Especially some of them being anounced on the comments as well. Next one we will try to bring in some other AWESOME Mompreneurs and have a basket of goodies! Here is what the winner chose!

I have been doing some private requests along the way. I just can't stop doing what I LOVE completely. My amazingly talented BIL asked me to make a special gift for one of his friends in Portland. But, of course! I love working out custom orders and trying to make someones vision to life. He wanted something edgy for this little dude. Here is what we came up with!

He wanted purple so I did a online search and once I saw this purple flame KNEW we had found it. I instantly had this skull in mind. I have wanted to use it for a while but just didn't know for what. Urban Threads is a great shop with edgy designs. I then went with Purple/Black Minky swirl for the underside and Silver Satin Trim. I just LOVE how it all flows together and is a complete package. The skull did take 75 minutes to stitch but there was not going to be a substitute. It was too perfect. Definitely a project I will remember. Check out my BIL masterpieces as well. He is located in Portland but, don't let that stop you from commisioning him on a piece.

2013 Babies Giveaway!!

Lots of exciting stuff happening around here. Even though I am on "Hiatus" still. I was lucky enough to make an great trade with another crafty lady. She had bought a Brother PR1000 (10 needle Embroidery Machine) but, had not been using it as she had hoped. I needed to upgrade...again. We struck a deal and I now have a 10 Needle Embroidery Machine!! I can embroider and Monogram almost anything! So excited to use this time away to get acquainted with it and when I come back it will be better than ever.

Our move will be here before we know it (off to Northern California this time). Lots to do before that happens which is the reason I am not up and running right now. I have been able to work on a few projects that I hope to have perfected when I come back.
