Merry Christmas and an AWESOME New Year!

So...another few months have passed and I have continued to be blessed!

Our Family Christmas Card!  Can you tell that I have Chevron on the Brain?!?!?!  Love it!

So Glad to have the Hubby home and so are the kiddos!  Micah's picture below captures his was taken at the Airport the day Tyson came home.  Makes me tear up just looking at it, that little boy could not stop laughing with that ear to ear grin on his face!


So what have I been up to?  I have done 12 shows since I blogged last...what?!?!  I know right?!?! Having the Hubby home has made all of this possible...he is awesome at helping behind the scenes. So good to have him home and not in a WAR ZONE!

Our shows have been tremendous and we have been really blessed!  The most exciting and humbling part of my shows is hearing how excited people get about things that I create.  Seriously humbling!  At one of our shows in Spokane, I called my husband who was out running errands and I told him how well the show was going...and then I stared crying!  I am a cry baby (normally), but I was feeling super has been such a blessing to do this. It has been such an added blessing to have people fall in love with things that I have a blast creating!  I love it!  Did I say that already?!?!?! 

A special thanks to everyone that has been a part of this process, customers, blog readers, friends, family...I love you all!

Hoping you had a Great Christmas and here is to an AWESOME NEW YEAR!

Horrible Blogger and an Explanation

My poor neglected blog! Have I attempted to explain any of the changes going on in my shop? No? Such a horrible blogger, but really when have I ever been regular and on top of things... oh yup, never! So don't feel bad if you are a little confused, I am too!

For those that know me personally, you already know this, so excuse the redundancy of this post.  For those that don't, hopefully this will help solve all of life's biggest questions. ;) The hubster just returned from a deployment to Afghanistan.  Bleh!  So glad he is back, but with his return we've had some life adjustments. So without going into too many details and to make a long story short, we've decided I will pursue Sweet Daisy Designs "full-time." Yay!

So here's the run down.  For now you'll find mainly digital prints on my etsy shop. Right now all are available for a small cost with a "Print your own" option.  I am slowly adding listings for the actual print to be printed and shipped to you.  All of the print colors are customizable, and you can find a color chart included on each listing.  Here's a few of my favorite prints! 

And Sweet Daisy Designs doesn't stop there, I will also be participating in various craft shows around the Pacific Northwest.  Our love of travel and the Pacific Northwest is one of the main reasons we've decided I will pursue Sweet Daisy Designs full time.  This is where the fun and variety comes in! On top of the digital prints, you will find Bags (where this all began!), notebook covers, kindle covers, iPad covers, headbands, and so much more.  To stop the rambling before it really begins, you can see the picture overload here.

Are you still reading? I'm SO impressed! We hope you will enjoy this journey with us to see where it takes us!

New bags!

Starting small here and have added one bag to the shop.  Baby steps people baby steps. :) I will attempt to list some more here in the next couple weeks. We shall see! 

I cannot get over this fabric, I'm buying bolts at a time! Love it!

Sweet Daisy Designs Show Booth

We had an awesome time this year at the Squatters Show by Art in the Park in Richland this year!  It was so fun to meet so many fun new people and to see so many returning customers.  So glad so many of you braved the heat and came back! We added a ton of new items this year and our booth was packed full of goodies.  All in all it was a great weekend!
We joined the electronic craze and added iPod, iPad, and Kindle cases to the covered notebook mix.

New wall art, digital prints, and headbands galore!


 Cozies were back...

Fun necklaces by Lis, the Mustache was my fav!

Rolled flowers for your hair, bags, scarves, and more! 

Headbands galore!

Sippy leashes were back...

New flower cabochon rings, loving these!

Magnets made a comeback

Flower cabochon bobby pins were a hit!

Bags, bags, bags! Lot's of fun new fabrics! 

Thanks again for a great weekend! We had a splendid time and look forward to next year!

Ruffled Headband

This project has been sitting in my picture folder for ages, mainly because this is the only decent picture I could get of it.  I have a serious goofball for a child. Serious. I loved this headband and need to change up the elastic so she can wear it again!

Home Sweet Home

Nothing like being 5 months in on your husband's deployment, living in your in-laws home to feel the importance of home and family.  We are extremely grateful to be so close to extended family while the hubby is gone, but we are ready to have our little family back together again. 

I decided to put all of my reflection to use and came up with some art prints all focused on families and home.  Enjoy a preview and to order visit Sweet Daisy Designs.
