New line of printables

My friend Ree has been designing some awesome Halloween printables and I am now selling them on my website. Here is a sample of one of the downloads as a finished product:

She used old beer bottles & even the carry case for them - spray painted black. Pretty neat and what a great way to re-use and recycle something!

There are 9 different printables to choose from right now - and only at $2.50 each it's a bargain!
You can do so many different things with her designs, she's been recycling all kinds of things - jars, bottles, books, etc.

Lititz craft show reminder and information

It's that time of year again! In 3 weeks I will be packing up and heading to my huge craft show in Lititz, PA. I wanted to post info on it for anyone who wants to come!

If you are somewhat local (I've had folks from as far away as CA and as near as NJ, PA, MD, CT) to Lititz Pennsylvania, I thought I'd share info on the craft show if you are interested in attending. This is by far one of the best craft shows; there are probably close to 1,000 vendors - everything you can imagine to see. I have a new spot this year, in front of Wilbur Chocolate Factory (YUMMM!). In fact, I have 2 spots this year which is why I keep saying YIKES to myself :)

The show is in the heart of Lititz, Lancaster County on Sat. August 14th from 8am - 4pm.

I've had shoppers as early as 6am; you can just use mapquest to find Lititz and it will take you to the center of town. THat's where we will be - they close the town for the day and you can just shop til you drop! If you do think you will be going, send me an email so I will know to look for you :) I LOVE meeting customers and other crafters so it would be alot of fun!

Some fun links to check out photo's of the crazy show. It's so much FUN!

Just a quick personal note

Whew what a busy summer! I wanted to share a couple of fun personal photo's from our summer. I needed a work-break today :)

My baby girl turned TWO earlier this month, I can hardly believe it?! We had a birthday party for her and she was just so adorable all dressed up! Her dress was a gift from her Aunt Kathy and my friend Melanie of made the hair bows to match. SO cute.

My favorite photo from the day... as all the kids were opening up her presents, she got her bug magnifying glass and was peeking at me saying "HiiiiYO Mommy" haha!

Her and Aunt Kathy eating YUMMY cake:
We went to VA to visit my good friend Megan & her 3 kids. It was a fun couple of days but my daughter kept the other kids up by chattering til 10pm - she's used to sleeping alone I guess!

We visited our cousins in VA too. I went to the biggest Wegman's ever :)

AND we got visits from Gramma and Grampa and Aunt Diana; and our usual huge 4th of July party brought lots of family over for a fun day ending with fireworks. We had friends from VA here too, celebrated Hubby, Gabrielle and RIck's birthdays out at Shula's restaurant.

So we've been enjoying our days quite a bit. And to spend a rainy day inside, with red Tutu and kitty cat is also a great time!

Fall E-pattern special!

Are you getting ready for your fall craft shows and/or just building inventory for your website? Well I sure am :) My biggest craft show (Lititz, PA Aug 14) is fast approaching and all I can think is YIKES I cannot sew/stuff/work fast enough!

I thought it would be a good time to offer a discount special on fall and Halloween Epatterns. My special is buy any 3 for $10 (savings of $6.50) and any 4 for $12 (savings of $10). I've set up a special product for you where you can view the patterns included in the special:

NEW pattern release, "Witch in Training" - such a fun set to create!

I also wanted to let you know I have a really fun new Halloween pattern coming out soon - I hope to have it done next week! I have been looking for 'new' this year and decided to work on something that's been in the ole sketch book for a while now.

HAPPY creating!
