Just a Quickie

Things have been kind of crazy here lately! We've been working on redoing our guest bathroom in time for Thanksgiving. Did I mention that we're hosting it this year for the first time? There will be about 20 people, ack! Last night we picked out the paint and tile to match our vanity. It's so exciting to have it all come together! We're hoping to have it done soon.. keep an eye out for pictures!

Last night I had a brilliant idea (at least I thought so) for a new headband with interchangeable color flowers. Super simple, cute, and versatile! Can't wait to take pictures this weekend and post it on the store soon! Speaking of the store... It's undergoing quite the makeover thanks to Frenchie & Flea. I've already updated my banner and pictures that they took. Now I'm going through the rest of my items for photo, watermark, title, and description updates. You can see the progress so far here. Aren't the pictures they took cute?

I'm really trying to build up my inventory over the next month. In December my church has an annual women's tea and they asked that I set up a booth to sell my items, and donate a portion of the sales to women's ministries. The theme is "Accessorize Yourself."Any ideas or suggestions for other things I can make?

Here's a quick pic of Brandon's Xmas socks. They're coming along. Slowly, but surely. I can only work on them a little bit at a time. The needles and yarn are both so small that after a while my eyes start to go cross! I'm loving the tweed yarn! Hope I can get them done in time without getting the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome I've read about. =P

I also finished another couple of swap hats:

Have a great weekend!!

PS giveaway winners: Keep an eye on your mailbox =D


  1. Oh, you are brave. Remodeling before a major holiday. :-) I'm doing a little project - tiling the backsplash before Thanksgiving. It's at my house this year too. My hats off to you!

    And I love your hats, can't wait to see more of the sock. Have a great weekend!

  2. If you were remodeling here in Spain your bathroom won't be ready for New Year's, maybe for Easter. :-P Good luck and enjoy Thanksgiving!

    The shop looks nice, I was wondering if some friends of yours were modeling your items but now I see they are part of that makeover you talked about.

    I dont't know what else could you make for selling, I think your hats and headbands (and necklaces!) are great. What about a little purse?

    I got the Second Sock Syndrome, the First one feels so lonely...

  3. I feel the same way when i knit socks. That's why I can only handle one sock at the time. The second one will always have to wait for awhile.

  4. I got the hat in the mail on Friday. I was so excited! Thank you so much! I'll have to take a picture and post it on my blog.

    The shop is looking great!
