It pains me, but...

With the way business has been going lately & all of my wonderful customers who have been keeping me b.u.s.y, I am not going to be able to get out any of my specialty Christmas items.

*insert wracking sobs here _________*
*mixed with some self-loathing & shame*
*not a pretty sight, I might add*

I had grand plans of getting out some new beanies & Christmas stockings & mittens & scarves & new embellishment items... alas, it's just not meant to be - YET!

I say "yet" because I will get all of these things up and running, but in order to fulfill my obligations to the orders already received, the "NEW" items will have to wait for a little bit.

I *am* going to post some pictures of items that are available for ordering... I just don't have time to do all the normal "marketing" processes they deserve! (i.e. making different colors, designs, taking pictures, editing said pictures, creating listings... etc.)

So, if you see something below that you'd like to order, just shoot me an email at OR contact me on Facebook & I'll get you on the list.

First is an adorable little capelet... or "shawl" or "shrug".
I got this pattern from Leila & Ben on Etsy.

It became a very perfect accessory to Brenna's Christmas dress last year.

I fell in love with her dress and as you can see it was fine if she were inside Sears, standing in front of a fake fireplace & Christmas tree...

... but she needed a little more warmth...
so we did this...

It finished off her look very nicely!
This year I'll be making 2 more for my other girls. I guess I wouldn't have to, but I tend to pick the dresses for "cuteness"... not warmth & practicality!

Next on my list was going to be the "Santa Set"
This pattern is from Lion Brand.
Beanies, mittens & scarves can be sold as a set or seperately.

There are so many other "Christmas-related" things I wanted to get up and ready, but I'm just going to show you one more beanie that I really want to "launch". It's not necessarily a Christmas item, but it could be paired with a Christmas ensemble & go quite nicely!

The Butterfly Beanie
I recently made one for Brooklyn (9) and she LOVES IT!

These are some Butterfly Mitts than can be made to match the beanie!
