soft neon

 soft neon people...neon is going to be big for spring and summer and fall next year- I'm teaming up with a couple different companies one of which is my favorite shop on etsy for little girls clothes..i just cant tell you yet... for photoshoots this year, and all of the lines you guessed it have soft neon... so if you had to wear neon whats your fav color of neon? I think mine would have to be the vibrant mint and peach/coral combo.... your thoughts....

I'm usually not a pastel kinda girl , but this custom necklace may have changed my mind what do you think- maybe I should try a mint and coral?

whats new!!!

I feel like the past month has been a blur. I've been helping with a big celebration in my community,working on therapy with my sweet son, And I've been working so hard in the shop to make everything relevant and change all my tags. Lots of techy stuff :)
 For those of you who have an etsy shop.. you'll know what I'm talking about...etsy decided to change the way you search for items..which has made it an absolute nightmare trying to edit everything in  my shop. But it also gave me the time to edit my shop clean it up..put everything in color order...yes I'm that weird....but overall I'm feeling like the shop is looking clean, the holiday pieces have been sent to photographers- and I'm working on clip holders for the shop- I'm excited to have something different to offer in the shop. and I think they are going to be adorable! Just not sure what colors to offer them in...what colors are your daughters rooms my peeps? do me a favor and answer the poll on my side bar for what colors you'd like to see these amazing holders in.

I'm in a magazine!

ok well at least my thumb Anyways I was contacted last year by an editor form interweave press to do a tutorial on making a rosette necklace they wanted something trendy so I went for tangerine ombre necklace, I went about writing my article and taking pictures..sent it in along with all the paperwork..holy cow theres a lot of paperwork involved with making a magazine and getting permission for things!
 And much to my surprise last week they told me
 I'd made the cover and were mailing me a check for my article.

I finally feel like my teeny homemade shop is making some waves and I'm excited for where it can go.
you can buy the magazine online here or in stores at local craft stores barnes and noble

vintage market in the east village

I love when the coolest people find my shop on etsy through the tool shop local.. Miss Erin the event coordinator for the east village found my shop and invited me to attend the vintage market...I knew lots of people would be there so I really had to amp up my booth, figure out what I wanted to do
 I found these plain old barrel displays and decided i wanted to color coordinate my product with my display for easy shopping, and who dosn't love when things are in rainbow order?.. ok maybe im psycho. My couch was also for sale and I sold it yay,, from junkyard crap to treasure.
 i made 200 cowboy fascinators for the stampede( as it was alos this week and we had 1,000's of tourists here looking for cowboy gear!), needless to say I was exhausted after this market.
 all set up and meeting my neighbors, this market was unlike any other Ive been in, they hand selected the shops so the feeling of the place would be cohesive, so everyone there had the same taste!, I met a lot of my teammates on the alberta street team, and could finally put a face to their etsy avatar, where we talk in our etsy forums. So that was a blast.
colored barrels and coordinating pieces by color- along with a cute tag on each barrel showing how you wear it. and mirrors attatched with ribbon so people could see what they looked like on.

all in all a fun market and I almost sold everything!
