Spring '16 Has Sprung

Hello gorgeous sunshine, blue sky's, chirping birds and sweet smelling breeze. We have missed you and we are so excited for your inspiration of new beginnings. At this point in my life I split my creative life from my working life and I'm obviously torn. Half of my week is spent arriving on time to a job doing work that is necessary for my family to afford our lifestyle. I wish I had more time to dedicate to my business but that isn't possible right now. This fact makes it almost impossible for me to expand my business or make any sort of impression on my customers. I probably make a few good sales a month but compared to last years profits, things are down. I still love it though, even if it's just a hobby.

POST EDIT: Here is an image of one of these items in use. 


Good golly! Where did last year go? I'm kind of glad to see it go and I'm looking forward to what this year has to bring.

Last year we finally started to feel at home living in Michigan. We purchased our first home and created a lot of great memories. I can't wait to get back into the groove of crafting and hopefully create my own space for making my designs. At the moment I have a desk setup in our living room. Along with yarn, fabric and buttons galore strewn across the house. It's maddening. I have a dream of creating my own little oasis. In time it will happen.

Last year was pretty slow for me. I'm working close to full time as a hospital registration clerk and only find time to create on my days off and some weekends. It's hard to keep up with the other photography prop vendors that are out there. I wish I could go back to working full time at home but for now this is necessary.

Here are a few sneaks at the new props I have created in the last few weeks. Thanks again to all my loyal followers. I think you're out there, right?

 This little vest was made for a dear friends of mine who is pregnant with her first baby. I'm in love with it and I hope she cherishes this gift.

 Think Spring! East is coming up soon and these headbands are just darling for sitting babies.

Recap of Last Year

I thought it would be nice to share some professional photos that I received last year. These photographers made my designs come to life. Reviewing these gives me justification for the hours I spend perfecting every creation.
