The timing of this weather couldn't of been any better. I've had to spend a lot of time preparing for two sales this coming weekend, and there's nothing I enjoy more than making things in my craft room on sunny days.
I've got lots of new things in the works which I would like to share with you, and I'll start with what's exciting me most right now.
In December, I did a rather large order for a lovely bride who was getting married on New Year's Eve. The order was for 150 head pieces for her female guests - some tiny hats, some headbands, some flowers. After the order was complete, I was itching to make more hats. Thankfully, another order for tiny hats came in from her event planner. And after that order was complete, once again, I was itching to make more hats.
So, that's what I've been doing. Making tiny hats.
They'e made mostly of paper, so they're very lightweight, and easy to wear. They were designed with brides and maids in mind, but they're also perfect for a fancy evening out.
I'm enjoying the process so much soI think I'm just going to keep rolling with it for awhile and see what develops. Here's a peek at the new pieces.
I've also been making TONS of these cute gingham flowers in springy colors. They have clips on the back, so you can wear them in your hair.
Besides the hats and hair flowers, there have been lots of valentines in the works.
Like these tiny little guys... They measure just 1.5 inches by 2.75 inches.
Also, some valentine badges with squirrels in love, hearts and birds...
These were a big hit last year, so I made another batch of chains around your heart...
I'll be bringing all of this new inventory to the Second Saturdayz Market, Saturday February 11th.
It's a wonderful show - vintage goods sprinkled with vintage-inspired crafts - and it's organized by my crafty friend Linda (of LULUZ) and her craftin/junkin' pal, Debra.

With Valentine's Day so approaching so soon, there won't be time to post any of these items on Etsy, but if you see anything that strikes your fancy, please send me an EMAIL, and we can work something out.
If you're free and in the neighborhood, please swing by the sales this weekend!
