Button stamp

A few months ago, I saw a tutorial on making a button stamp using old thread spools . I thought these would be perfect to decorate my envelopes. My mom volunteered to make a few button cut-outs for me since she owns a button punch. Today I finally had a chance to test them out. Fun stuff!

Speaking of doilies..

I've had this idea about using doilies on a tank top for a while now. Last year, I bought a bunch of doilies and tried dying them myself. The only thing that got dyed was my basement tub and my rubber gloves. Lesson learned!

So when I saw these cuties on Etsy from an Australian seller, I knew I HAD to buy them. She cuts out doilies from old tablecloths and dyes them all different colours.

The only thing that was left was to design a top that would accentuate the corsage but still be fun and unique. As always, it's available in custom made sizes from xs-xl in bamboo jersey.

Simple doily project

During my Christmas vacation, I made a few crafts with my mom. This was one of them. My mom provided the 2 vintage doilies. I provided the double pane frame. Simplest project ever!

Photographed next to my Valentine's gift - a miniature rose bush. I'm not very good with indoor plants, hopefully this one will last more than a few weeks.

New markdowns

It's only March 1st and Spring is already in the air. We had a great weekend with above average temperature and the snow banks are slowly getting smaller.

Since Spring is right around the corner, I decided to markdown my F/W accessories by 20%. Here's a quick glimpse of my favorites that are still in the shop:
