New Etsy Treasury!!!!

Here is a new LOVELY treasury full of bright and beautiful things. There are so many wonderful etsy sellers it was hard to choose just a few. I love the felt food and the bright felt clock. Both would be adorable for any child's play room. I also really love the stuffies. I'm seriously considering purchasing one for a friend of mine and her new baby. What a wonderful way to fall asleep at night, with a handmade, minky giraffe in bold colors.

There is so much going on here today. Not only am I trying to finish school so I can graduate this fall but we are prepairing for a new market in October. The market sounds like it's going to be a blast with handmade vendors from all over Iowa. We can hardly wait. This does mean that I need to step up the sewing game just a bit. I have one costume done and one in the works. Tonight it looks like I'll be watching re runs of Greys Anatomy and cutting out fabric.

The Leaves are changing...fall is coming

Fall is by far my favorite time of year. I love the way the leaves change color and the weather gets cooler. I always find the neatest sweaters to wear and I love all the various styles of boots you can find in stores. It's an obsession but what can you do.

Sewing dresses and little boy overalls was fun but I am very much looking forward to sewing costumes, sweaters, jackets and leggings. The colors being seen this year are pale pinks, soft grays, blacks, camo and shades of brown. We here at Lil Bow Peep Creations are looking forward to mixing in our own burst of flavor with colors like plum, burnt red and vintage blue.

Glitter covers our floor as we busily sew costumes like ladybugs, doctor outfits and fairy dresses with wings. This could perhaps be another reason I love fall; the costumes. Katie and I were just thinking the other day about the many costumes my mom made for us when we were younger. There is something we still miss about being able to dress up all the time perhaps that's why we have gone into the business of designing little fanciful things for babies and children to wear.

But I should go. There is so much to do before our market in October and so very little time. We have posted a discussion on our facebook page (lil bow peep creations). Check out our page and leave your comment!!
