The Hamptons

Remember the Hampton's Beanie?

Ok, maybe you don't... and that's OK.

Because I never really sold or advertised it...

I just made it on a whim one day and was pretty pleased with it!
Well, just the other day, another one of you noticed it... and requested a spin-off!

In a Punky Brewster-ish, Pink & Yellow's type style.

This would require me to create an original beanie.
Never been done before.
:blink: :stare: :blink: :gulp: :blink:

Side note: If you remember back when when I wrote this post...
I break out in hives, shut down for a solid 3 hours, and curl into the fetal position
anytime a customer request me to "use my own judgment", "do whatever I think looks best", "decide for them" or to "just surprise me!"

Side-Side note - You probably won't remember that post, because I had all of zero comments on it and probably zero views.

And that's OK.

So after I uncurled and had a cleansing shower, I sat down and just "went with it".

One row at a time....

Using my "best judgement"...


Until the last row was done
:sigh: :phew:

I'm not sure how Punky Brewster-ish it turned out, but it *is* an original.
Never to be reproduced - at least not exactly the same.

You can see more Deluxe Newsgirl style beanies here.

Or here.

Photographer Shoutout - Kat's Photography

Happy Thursday, All!
I just wanted to share some adorable new pictures from a very talented photographer I have had the pleasure of working with!

I met Carina Olsen via a March '08 due date buddy this past year.
Kat's Photography is located in League City, Texas. I am very envious of anyone in her area that has access to her fresh, modern, clean & sassy talent!

I had admired her work for a long time before being brave enough to ask her if she'd like to do a service swap!

Fortunately, for me, she said yes so I sent her a couple of items and this is the gorgeousness I got back!

I get giddy just looking at them!

Grab My Butt-on

I totally didn't mean that to sound ... "weird".

Ok, I lied... yes I did.

But I was referring to my new button that I created in just under 43 hours! You'd never guess that I could get it done so quickly, huh? I mean, with all of it's insanely detailed craziness!

Anyway, I'm happy with it... and if you have a blog and would like to grab my butt-on *smirk*, then... well, it'd really make the world a better place!

Grab on, people! Grab on.
