The Big Move

After a week without internet I am back online. I don't think we realized how much stuff we had until we had to pack it all up for a move across the state. Thank God for help from my family, especially my dad, or else I don't know how we would have done it. We worked 16 hours straight with a short break for lunch and a short break for supper. Then after the day was done my dad returned our U Haul truck 20 minutes away in the middle of the night, with another 2 hours drive home after that. I don't know how he got to work at 8 the next morning because I could hardly get out of bed at 10. 

Soon after moving we drove another 3 hours up north to a park in the middle of nowhere to attend my youngest sister's wedding. (And by the middle of nowhere I mean a 10 mile drive down an all gravel Rustic Road.) The park was beautiful and well worth the drive. Doesn't she make a beautiful bride? 

Now that we are back home we can get back to work getting our house in order. I will be shipping orders as soon as I can get my sewing room set up. I've got most of the house in order so now I can focus on my sewing room. If you ordered from me in the past week or two please be patient for just a few more days. 

As for the looms I've got a few made. I just need to get them set up and packaged into their boxes.

Buy Local

In preparations for my big move I stopped at WhimsiKidz today to check on how well my headbands were selling and to drop some more things off. WhimsiKidz is a kid's only hair salon in Wauwatosa, WI that often make baby's first hair cut extra special. They get to sit and watch cartoons while the stylist cuts their hair. The little ones get to sit in their mom's lap which makes the experience much more comforting for them. While they wait the siblings get to play in the waiting area with the multitude of toys available. Besides being a hair salon they are also a store where locals often shop for baby or Christmas gifts. They carry many local handmade items including my own. Earlier this year I dropped off some of my headbands and have been pleased with the way they handle the sales so I decided to drop a few more things off. Since I am moving I decided to unload a few pillows and baby bibs. So on top of the headbands you can now view in person the star shaped pillows, heart shaped pillows and appliqued baby bibs.
