a sale…a sale… A SALE!!!

the day after Christmas is often known as a time to go to the mall and get some pretty good deals. Well I had never thought about making a sale on ETSY the day after Christmas but guess what it happened!!! So excited, I ran upstairs to the studio and found that the order was ready to package up and ship, this was so so very relieving, the fact that I did not have to create the order… this got me thinking…I want to be a ready to ship shop. This means my inventory will be ready to ship when I get sales, instead of prepping orders as they come(this is a lot of work). My goal to get this accomplished is by second quarter 2019!

Keep on coming over to the shop to see new releases, old listings, and sales!!!

Have a creative day!

 

It is a Handmade Christmas

Well I hope each one of you are having a very Merry Christmas!!!!

I have always had a goal to make everyone on my gift list a gift instead of buying a gift from a store.

Well I still bought gifts dont get me wrong but we were super busy in the studio this season.

Me and my mom live to craft together and we make such a great team, I man the cutting machine and mom uses the heat press, glues, paints, creates bows and accessories and basically is my right hand❤

I had a very busy schedule leading up to Christmas that verged on stressful

I had scheduled (back in the summer, not realizing it would be stressful😂) 2 medical board exams(risk adjustment and clinical documentation expert outpatient). Wow all I have done since August is study every evening… now it being December I should be relaxing enjoying the season but all I am doing is stressing…lol!!! See previous post about the exams

So besides a trip to the outlet mall and a day of shopping locally everything else was handmade😊

Loving this wood sign I made for my cousin, he grows his own hops and brews his own beer! I felt it was perfect… I designed the entire sign from Scratch(which I am super proud of too)

This sign I also created from a raw piece of wood and a design I customized with my uncles name… although I didnt create the design from scratch I still love how it turned out!

Santa sacks so cute… these were made for my 2 “neices”

Embroidery hoop art has become a favorite new way to make signs. This one is for my aunt… what is neat is that we ear at her house every Tuesday… so, I think it is very appropriate❤

This one was a treat yo’self project it is for me❤

This embroidery hoop art is a nice welcome sign for my mimi

This is us signs for my best friend and sister in law

Home is where the cat is embroidery hoop sign which I designed from scratch, for our special cat lady❤

The famous red truck Christmas sign as a reverse canvas for my cousin

These two projects I am so very proud of… homemade clocks for my 2 cousins

The last handmade gift I made was a metal sign, I painted using chalk paint, loving the slight garage look of this sign😉

Hope your Holiday was handmade with love too

Check out our ETSY shop to find items like the ones shown here ❤

Time for a cami refresh

Do you LOVE Ruby Ribbon Cami’s?

Have you never tried one but always wanted to?

Do you need a new cami?

If you answered yes to any of those questions keep reading this post is for you!!!

Ruby Ribbon has never done this before so let’s all jump on board and shop!!!

Buy a cami and get the 2nd and 3rd cami at a reduced price😍

What is the deal with 3 camis, why is it important that you have 3? Is 3 a magic number?

Well the way our camis are designed to bounce back to it’s original shape after worn, we came up with the formula

Wear one rest one and wash one

Three camis are perfect(although most have way more than 3)three camis are a great starter set!!!

You don’t want to wear the same cami multiple days in a row. it needs time to rest and get to its original shape, so when you put it back on it offers the same hug it did the first time you wore it😊

Now for those who have yet to experience the freedom Ruby Ribbon Cami provides let me talk to you for a second😉

1. Do you hate your bra?

2. Is it one of the first things you shed at the end of the day?

3. Do you long to be able to go bra free?

4. Do you like hugs? No seriously this is a serious question?

5. Do you wish your tummy was flatter?

Well I have the perfect solution and you can only find it through an independent stylist like me🙋‍♀️

There are others out there claiming to offer similar things like Ruby Ribbon but believe me(I am speaking as a customer bc yes I also buy RR and wear RR)

The cami provides lift for the girls without an underwire and you can loose up to one inch with the tummy support(cheapest tummy and boob job in town😁🎁)

So much on sale

Perfect Christmas and NYE outfits and gifts for every woman on your list

Hugs
