These were a custom request. A jackalope and a bigfoot with mustaches. Something I never thought I would make. No one ever said the stuffed animal business was predictable!
I added some new wedding cards to the shop this month! I am partial to the strawberries. How cute would a wedding in a strawberry field be? Plus the smell, and all the jam possibilities!
Whenever I get an order for some save the dates, I always get little butterflies because: 1. It means I have to do my best work 50+ times in a row, and 2. It means I get to be a little part in someone’s wedding. Always with great privilege, comes great responsibility.
But when I get little notes from happy customers, it makes all my hard work feel so appreciated. Here are a couple sweet notes I have received in the past couple months:
- Oh my goodness they arrived today and they are absolutely to die for!! I know we are going to get a ton of compliments on these babies!! Thank you so much for all your hard work, I will be recommending you to all my friends in the future.
- We have gotten a TON of compliments and we can´t thank you enough for the wonderful work you did! We kept one for ourselves to frame and keep forever!
- I just got home from work and was so excited to see that my order arrived! I opened the box it to discover the most beautiful save-the date cards I have even seen in my life!!! Each one is a precious work of art. I can’t stop staring at them and am so excited to get them out to our guests.
Hope that makes you remember there are people in the world who appreciate your hard work, and your time means something more to them!
Hope you have a nice weekend! The sun came out here!
Can you believe its almost a week until Christmas? We’ve been in a holiday spirit for several weeks here, with lots of hot chocolate and candy canes, Christmas cartoons, shopping, friend dates, and breakfasts for dinner. I am very excited to do all those things with family soon.
And as much as I love making things, it will be nice to take a little break from sewing too! If you are in the market for a handmade stuffed animal or cute Christmas cards, be sure to get your order in today!
So yesterday was my birthday, and we took a field trip to get some yarn. While we were in the store, we browsed some magazines, and look what we found.
Something I made is in a real life magazine! It is the winter Do It Yourself magazine from Better Homes and Gardens. We only bought 2, so there should be plenty left for you. And you can find my claim to fame here!
I am generally a firm believer that each holiday has its time. This is probably because I have a November birthday. I like to celebrate my birthday, then Thanksgiving, and then it can be Christmas music time. BUT it is time to start thinking about any gifts you need to make. If you start those after Thanksgiving, you may not finish in time. Plus, working on gifts and crafts in these early evenings is sort of what fall is all about, right?
So by that logic, now is the time to begin working on these cards! I am really happy with these classic redwork designs. Those deer cards are selling like gingerbread cookies at Christmas, or hotcakes, whichever you prefer. Find them in the shop now.
