Etsy Shop Product Sneak Peek!!

It's finally here!!!! I get to show some of the hard work I've been doing the past few months. Here are some of the items I'll be selling in my Etsy Shop. I'll be sharing more on Wednesday, so keep checking back!!!

I have to be honest, I'm glad I've been doing my homework. It's been a lot of work, from ordering all the supplies, to getting the patterns just right, to getting all the small details perfect. From the colorful packing tape, to the business cards and buttons, to every single stitch, I put all my heart into it. I hope you guys enjoy the sneak peek :)

Of course my famous Happy Mail plushie envelopes will be sold, I made a TON!!! All are unique and have their own special colors, no 2 are alike! All made with lots of love in every stitch!

Copper the Fox will be making an appearance as well :) Isn't he a cutie?

One of the things I've been hush hush on is the journals I've been designing. It's a moleskine of course, my new favorite. I stitched Copper to the front. It took me a lot longer than I expected (5 hours) it was quite painful for the fingers so I'm only selling one of these. I have other journals planned but they are a little different but just as cute!!!!

Here is the inside cover of the journal, it has woodland patterned paper to match the forest theme.

Bubble teas will be sold in Original, Grapefruit and Avocado flavors.

Be sure to keep checking back for more sneak peeks!! I still have lots to share! I am sooo excited but so nervous at the same time, Wish me luck!


Happy Father's day to all the Daddy's out there. Special mention to my Dad, who every Father should strive to be. I love him so much, he has always been there for me and been the best Dad in the world. He is a very special part of my life and I am so grateful he's MY Dad :) Oh and he taught me the RIGHT way to clean, and for that I'm thankful :) lol

[Can you tell he likes Jimmy Johnson??]

I also wanted to say Happy Father's Day to my hubby Joseph. It's sad he can't be here to celebrate with us since he's deployed. We have been thinking about him all day. We love you so much Joseph. Thank you for being the most amazing Husband, Daddy, Best Friend in the whole world. I am so lucky to have found the most perfect person for me, we are like Wall-E and Eva, your the cream in my twinkie Baby!!! :) We love you and miss you. Can't wait to run into your arms again!!

    I think all you need is a good metal thumb tip (for sewing) to make the journals.

  16. Everything is turning out great and I am glad to see that. Your plushies look amazing. It shows all the hard work you put into them. I am sad that I could not be home for Fathers Day too. Its not really a Fathers Day if I cant spend it with the family. I miss you and the kids more and more everyday. I cant wait to be able to hold you again too. Love you babe.

    -Your Hubby
