Design Your Own (in full detail!)

Okay, so I promised I would write more about the "Design Your Own" portion of the store so here goes...

As most of you know I started doing shows this past fall. In order to keep the ordering process as simple as possible, I came up with a process involving patterns, icons & fonts that could be applied to any product that we were offering. These three elements were used & reused, designed & redesigned for HOURS of fun at the shows. My customers had a ball as did my sales girls who were pushing (ever so gently) the products all day long for 4 days straight (thanks reeme, beck, aim, & tut!... oh & jeff, mom, dad & meg, too :)

The products that were selected for the shows all fit inside our antique pie safe display & boy were people drawn to it! We created the ultimate "cluster" effect where we were swamped with onlookers in front of our booth CONTSTANTLY! Needless to say, it was a huge success incorporating a unique, fun shopping environment.

Hence the new look, new navigation and general approach to the way we sell on There are new, innovative ways to shop in the works & I promise you're gonna love it! For now you can view the "patterns" "fonts" & "icons" links in the left navigation of the site to view your current choices to be applied to the following products:

We have many new products to be introduced to this line of "Design Your Own" so stay tuned for more FABULOUSNESS coming soon :)

Have a great rest of the week & I promise more fun & excitement heading your way!


Another newbie :)

This precious new gift is good for those on your list ages 5-65 (or older, hehe)! These clear acrylic 9 1/2 x 13 boards are decorated to perfection with a coordinating bow. You choose your pattern, font, icon (to be placed in the center in lieu of a monogram), monogram or name! I know you are just going to love these!

I cannot resist adding new goodies! Who said you have to gradually add new stuff?! I am sure you are gonna love this lagniappe newbie.

The site has kept me so busy this week & last. I am going to have Mardi Gras & Valentine's stuff posted very soon... keep checking back for updates!

We've got new icons... click here to view the precious art we've had drawn just for us! I love the work these gals have done... very excited to have them available. Remember, all of our art is transferrable from one product to another!
