Well its HERE! This weekend is the Binbrook Country Home and Garden Show. We've been working really hard to come up with some new items while still making sure to have lots of the originals. We've got messenger bags, kid's bags, crocheted kid's mini purses, hats, aprons, animals, pillows, headbands and much much more. I'm really proud of this stuff... I'd like to keep some of it for myself :)There are about 70 other vendors participating in the show plus they have an outdoor swap meet and a car show on Sunday. Admission is $3 (kids are free) and parking is free. Remember that Mother's Day is coming up and this will be a great place to find a one of a kind gift!! Show runs Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm.

Hope to see you there!!

Its official... I have Baseball Brain. I'm not sure why but this year I am addicted to baseball, not just any baseball, Blue Jays Baseball. I've been to 2 games already... I know there's people out there that have been to way more then that this season last year I went to ONE and it was in September, so I should get some credit for that. I'm just really enjoying watching the games (expect for last night cause that was a bit painful), when its an off day it makes me sad, when its an early game and I'm at work I have to keep checking my phone and Twitter for updates to see who's winning! Seriously, how did this happen? There's 151 games left of the regualr season... Let's Go Blue Jays!

Sales and Stuff

We finished our first sale a couple weeks ago (I'm a little slow with my post) and it was a lot of fun. I love coming up with ideas to make our area stand out and look interesting. It was a good sale to start with and gave us all some ideas of how to do things differently and prepare for the next one. Here's a look at our "table"....

We've booked a spot at the Binbrook Home and Craft Sale happening May 5th and 6th. It'll be a much bigger event so that means we need to get cracking so that we have lots of new items ready to go!!!

New Logo!!

It's here!! It's finally here!! So I've been bugging my cousin for a "little" while to make me a logo... He's super talented and creative and probably very sick of me and my pleading. But it's done and I love it and I will brag about it to EVERYONE! So anyway here it is...

It makes me smile just to look at :)

Oh! And don't forget... this weekend (Saturday March 24th) is the Mom 2 Mom show at Flamborough Babtist Church... $2.00 for admission and the sale runs from 9am-1pm. Hope to see you there!

Another Post... Creative, Right?

Well, as I said before, A LOT of sewing has been happening lately. Which is good because that means I am using up the stacks of fabric that I have and am actually doing something with it... really the motivation for using it up is that I get to buy more :) Anyway, I spent the weekend away at the cottage with my cousin and my uncle and they were lucky enough to be outside shoveling off the roof while I did most of the sewing (convenient for me, right?) and they didn't have to listen to the constant chatter of my sewing machine (or me blaring the Blue Jays game on the radio so that I could hear it over the sound of  my machine). I managed to complete another 5 bags for the Mom to Mom sale that's coming up (my first real sale... AHHHH). I've added my inventory to Facebook so you can have a look here. I think I should probably head back to the cottage now... I feel very productive when I'm there. Probably because there's no laptop, no cell phone and very few distractions.

Anyway, that's about all for today. Here's a picture of some of the hats that my sister is making for the sale. It's going to be a fun day!

What's New?

Well lately I've actually been sewing! I felt a little uninspired for a couple of months and while I was still getting stuff done it was really taking a long time. My fabric was taking over the family room and my bedroom was a claustrophobic mess that I just couldn't work in... So I came up with a plan and decided to get organized. I asked my Papa to make me some IKEAish cubbies and bought the boxes to fit inside.

I got home from work and just ripped my room apart. I don't have much space to work with so I wanted to make the most of it. In the end, I moved the bed, dresser and trunk, broke my bookshelf, bought and built (well Corey built) a new bookshelf, stacked my beautiful custom built cubbie cabinets and moved my desk into the family room and believe it or not I now have much more space! I'm actually organized. For those of you that know me you are well aware that organization is not my strong suit. I'm a bit of a disaster and generally function pretty well within the chaos. But anyway, I now have bins full of fabric that is easy to get at and I know what I have to work with. My sewing machine is set up in the family room and I have a much better workspace that doesn't take over the entire room which is a huge bonus for the rest of the family.

What else? Well I just finished my second set of baby bedding which was a lot of fun to make (I can't wait to see pictures of the room all set up!) and I have had a bunch of custom orders in the shop lately. I'm also in the process of building up inventory for my very first sale! I'm going to have a table at the Flamborough Baptist Church Mom to Mom Sale on Saturday March 24th. I'm really excited about this and hope that it will be a start to getting my info out to other people and getting this business going! You should come check it out, tell your friends! I'm sharing a table with my Aunt (selling handmade aprons) and my sister (selling crocheted childrens hats).

I'm heading up to the cottage this weekend so that I can actually feel like I experienced a little bit of winter and my plan is to bring my sewing machine (sorry Uncle), sit in front of the fire place and gets lots and lots of work done! I have so many cute bags cut out right now and I can't wait to get them put together! I'll post pictures when I get back. I really wouldn't mind if it snowed so much that we got snowed in and had to stay a few extra days... wishful thinking? Probably.
