It's been a while

Actually it's been a long while since I posted. I have had a serious case of the wintertime blues. I sometimes wonder why I live in Utah but then Spring comes around and I get over it! I am loving watching my lillies start to come out of the ground and this past weekend we went to a nursery and bought peas to plant in the garden this weekend! Yeah! My kids are so excited. I love working in our garden. Last year we sooo overplanted and had squash, tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins coming out our ears but we loved it and wasted hardly anything. We have cases of salsa in our pantry, I think I did 3 batches. Okay enough of that and back to Spring...I was worried that the ruffles and flowers were going to be out of style this year but they are bigger than they were last year. Everywhere I go that's what is in and I love it! They are so feminine and pretty. My booth at Quilted Bear is stocked full of flowers and starting tomorrow it will be full of headbands also. I can't seem to keep those in stock but the last few days I made over 100 so I am heading down there in the morning. Remember if you ever need a custom flower or headband I would be happy to do it. I have had a few orders that I really enjoyed making. The first one was flowers for a lampshade. It turned out so cute and now I want to make one for myself. The second one was for a girls prom dress, I felt a little pressure with that one but she loved them and said she would send me a picture. I made some little flowers for my neice's baptism dress and am really excited to see them on her dress. It's amazing what a little embellishment can do for an outfit. My friend wants me to make her some small flowers to clip on her flats. She said she has tons of plain flats and wants to jazz them up. I am going to be working on that today for her. That's the thing I love about these flowers, they are so versatile. You can pin them on sweaters, t-shirts, scarves, belts, shoes and more. You can clip them on a headband for girls and women and babies. You can also use them in home decor, I had never thought about that one until I got the custom order, then I started thinking of a million projects you could do. Well I am off to tie price tags on headbands-please don't hesitate to email me with any questions or comments. My email is spdandilicious@gmail.com
