Adding a personal touch

In case you were to timid to ask {or just never thought to}, YES!  I can add personal touches to your order.  With some limitations of course.  But please, don't hesitate to ask me through Convo on Etsy.

I've received a few requests to add names to my Bridal Party Thank You Cards - Sassabelle - Style No. 1, so to make it eay for you, I listed an "Add On" for names in my Etsy store.  It only costs a couple dollars extra gives your cards an even more personal appeal.

The process is simple.  Just add the Add Names listing to your cart with the rest of your purchase, and in the "notes" section, tell me the names of your party and their roles.  Easy-Peasy!

Get a glimpse of these beauties going out the door today!!

Have a whimsical day :)

In Bloem - Spring Hair Blooms

I was really excited to get a little time last week to craft.  I also got a chance to purge some unnecessary scrapbooking supplies {I really haven't scrapbooked in years}, and even had extra time to painted my!

Going through my supplies, I got reinspired to make some flower hair combs.  It also helped that I recently sold another pair on Etsy!

Happy Saturday!!

Tax Time

I'm new at this craft business thing, and haven't really had that much time to invest into it.  So I was really proud of myself last year, when I took a leap and got my business license, hoping it would be one of many more steps in the right direction towards my goal.

To be honest, I never did ANYTHING with it! {Aside from ordering some envelopes, which I still have to see if I saved the receipt for}.

Fast forward to a week after my baby boy, Rowan, was born, when I got a call at 7am, from somenone at the County Clerk's Office, letting me know that they needed to audit my home business.  I managed to give a sleep deprived response of, "I haven't even done anything with my business."  The man replied, "So, you're not renewing your license?"  And all I could muster up was, "Not now". 

So now, with tax time just around the corner, I have to figure out how to file a business that didn't really produce OR expense any money.

Also, I'm not sure whether I should renew my license.  I guess I should have allowed them to audit...*not thinking clearly at the time*

I planned to really get going on it during my maternity leave {in my dreams!}. Rowan had a different plan, mostly revolving around himself.

We moved into a fixer upper house and had a baby last year.  I get anxious enough over taxes as it is. I'm really not looking forward to filing this year, even though we should get a lot back.  I think it's time to kick TurboTax to the curb and go to a professional, who can sort through it all.

If anyone out there has some tax advice for someone just getting their feet wet, I'd love to hear it!

Happy Tax Filing!

Featuring a Reversible Hooter Hider Tutorial by Made by Lisa G

I don't have much time for my own arts & crafts right now, but my friend, Lisa G has been sewing all kinds of great gifts for me and other new moms, so I asked her to do a guest blog tutorial for one of her creations. 

She one-uped my request, and started a whole new blog, Made by Lisa G, to share her crafting "How To's".  Lisa is also a great photographer, so you can bet all of her tutorials are going to have great pics, which makes it SOOO much easier, don't ya think?

Here's a peek at the Reversible Hooter Hider Tutorial by Made by Lisa G

A Hooter Hider is a must have for modest moms who breastfeed. 

I use mine all the time!

Thanks Lisa!
