This little cutie Avelyn is wearing the first dress that I ever sold to anyone. So exciting to see something I made on someone elses site! This photo is a part of a photo shoot by a very talented aspiring photographer.  Aren’t they a cute little family?

 And speaking of cute….this is Julia sporting another Bellababy dress by moi. Everyone together now.. . ahhhh.                      


Other than that, I am afraid I don’t have much to show or tell. I am however expecting a very exciting parcel in the mail this week that will most likely result in lots of photos on this site and lots more for me to post about. The shop is open this week as usual from 1-6pm. I will be there on Tuesday so stop by for a coffee if you like! I am always up for some company!

Photos and such…

I have some pics from the Shopping and Sangria Garden party that I have been wanting to post, but we were away on holidays and it was a bit crazy. Those of you who joined us know all about the fantastic cheesecake (thanks Jen!) and the sangria but the rest of you are out of luck. Maybe next time….

So…some photos of the digs

I know it looks like no one came to my party, but that is because everyone was so busy shopping and eating and drinking that I didn’t have time to take photos and be the hostess too!

So…that was our summer party. The next party is our fall collection launch on September 22, which is coming up incredibly soon. Yikes. I need to get busy. So…I’ll be sewing for the next few weeks but I will send more details your way about our fall launch.

See you soon!

calling all craftsters…

I am working on getting some “craft-along” type groups/classes going in Quesnel and just wanted to put the word out there and see if there is any interest. I mostly work with textiles so probably any class things would involve fabrics somehow, but my mom Cindy may offer some crocheting or knitting classes if you want to learn that kind of thing. Anyways….any thoughts, comments, ideas, input etc. would be great!
