making their debut…

by @according2kelly on November 30, 2007

there is something (or rather “things”) new in the shop. but before i get to that, i just want to say a heart felt thank you! never, never, never in a zillion years, would i have thought that i would have some much success, so quickly! i toyed with the idea of opening the shop for practically ages. but i was too scared. finally i bit the bullet & heavens! the support & encouragement i have received has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. i’ve actually sold things in the shop, people actually like my things! but even more incredible, has been the onslaught of custom orders via my email… i hung up my “open for business” sign & suddenly i was receiving so many emails requesting custom made pieces. i love it! & i love all of you for making this happen! thank you! thank you! thank you!

now (drum roll please), may i introduce…
the all of my love necklace & wear your heart on your wrist bracelet

i could say it a million times in a million ways…

by @according2kelly on October 24, 2007

but thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough. this past weekend, the big boutique, was a huge success (if i do say so myself)… in large part to you! i was truly amazed, flattered & inspired by how many of you out there in the blog-o-sphere made the trip to visit with us. i enjoyed meeting & chatting with you, i only wish the afternoon could have lasted longer, in order to have spent more time with each of you… it was such fun! i hope you enjoyed yourselves as well! for those of you who couldn’t make it, here are some quick shots of the goodies i had up for sale (click on the image to enlarge)… aprons (everything from ‘lil girlie aprons to ones with lots & lots of ruffles), paci clips, hair bands, onesies, baby blankets & hand-stamped necklaces. (be sure to check out marta’s blog for lots more pictures of the big event!) again… thank you! thank you for coming, thank you for inspiring me & thank you for believing in me. i think felix frankfurter said it best…

gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep. thank you.


sneak peak.

by @according2kelly on October 19, 2007

as you may or may not have known, i have been busy getting ready for THIS. (don’t forget, it’s tomorrow, saturday, october 20th!)anyway… a long long time ago, in what seems like practically another life, i was going to school here, to get this. while my professors were teaching me the finer points of accounting & organizational behavior, they probably imagined that i would be putting my newly polished business skills to work in some large company. possibly heading up the marketing department or maybe overseeing product manufacturing in china. i truly doubted that the idea of me being a one-gal sweat shop ever entered their mind. but, that’s what i’ve become. crafts & projects have taken over my house. (i’m sure my hubby & boys will be thrilled when all this is over… they’ll have their wife & mommy back. they’ve been a wee bit neglected.)

so without further ado, here’s a sneak peak at the goods i’ll be offering up tomorrow. (click on the image to see it bigger, in all it’s glory.) i have to admit, i feel a bit like the wizard in wizard of oz, revealing what’s behind the curtain…

interested in seeing some of the other handcrafted items the other girls have been working day & night on? check them out over HERE.
ta ta for now… hope to see you there tomorrow.


good mail by kelly

this little beauty is off to the post office today, ready to be shipped to a special, unsuspecting friend. i hope wearing the words ’round her neck will give her a bit of strength, help her through some tough times & remind her that she is constantly in my thoughts & prayers. hope she enjoys it!


you saw what i got, now see what i gave…

by @according2kelly on September 7, 2007

here are the goodies isent off to sweet sarah. i’m most excited about the little craft utility apron i made. i have to admit i had a hard time giving it away. i saw one somewhere (i don’t remember where, otherwise i’d definitely give credit), & knew i could make one. i’m not the brightest when it comes to sewing, so it took me a couple tries & lots of ripped seams, but i eventually figured it out. hopefully sarah enjoyed the package!


feeling lucky?

by @according2kelly on August 30, 2007

i don’t know about you but i never seem to win anything. so if i can’t get my hands on some free goodies, the least i can do is hook YOU up. if you’re lucky, maybe i’ll be sending my latest apron creation your way!
so here are the rules of the game:
* you have until midnight PST on sunday, september 2nd to enter.
* simply make a comment on THIS post to enter.
* anonymous comments will be ignored unless accompanied by an email address.
* please, just one entry per person.
* the winner will be randomly picked & announced monday.


still not a winner.

by @according2kelly on June 13, 2007

The blog world is full of give aways. Everywhere you look, it seems you can win a prize… design mom, mod mom, tangled & true, just to name a few of the wonderful blogs that love to give! So when Nan, over at Life is Like a Lunchbox, announced she would be hosting Apronpalooza & that there would be contests involved, I knew this would be my chance to win big. So I checked her blog daily & she didn’t disappoint. I think the final count was 18 giveaways… 18 chances to win… 18 opportunities to win the apron of my dreams! And yet, I didn’t win. I had my heart set on a pretty, new apron… so I made it myself, using the pattern I found HERE. Oh well… someday I’ll win.
