Oh my, so much to write and soooo little time because I have a million ( okay, not quite that many, but enough to feel overwhelmed right now ) e-mails to answer! Which brings me to my first item that needs to be posted about today before we get to the fun stuff....
Many of you know that I have had some issues with my e-mail, but a lot of you are unaware of it and probably think I am just not paying you any attention - not so! I have been receiving messages just fine ( to best of my knowledge at least ), but am having great difficulty in getting mine to send. The problem has been fixed and I have begun the enormous task of sorting out who has and has not received e-mails I have sent over the last several days because some did go through, as well as replying to all the messages I put on hold until the issue was taken care of. So, just bear with me, please - I'm typing as fast as I can! I have also had trouble with my blog posts, hence the lack of them recently.
Secondly, I wanted to thank Crystal over at Little Bit Funky for the sweet mention today! I just have to put a plug in here for her... Crystal has been a long-time lassie scrap buyer and is just a fabulously encouraging & super-creative fellow Etsy seller. She is one of the people that inspired me to start blogging. I am a faithful follower (though not a frequent commenter) of her's and wish I was half the blogger she is! I am a pretty private person and admire her openness in describing the struggles and joys of her daily life. Plus, she has the advantage of having two adorable boys to write about. I can not boast of the same attraction yet so until then, I'll just have to think of other things to amuse you with! ;)
And while I'm on the subject of my favorite Etsy friends and pointing you to their shops, I also have to mention Kami at Maya Papaya...
Kami is also a long-time LG customer ( one of the first, I think ) and her hair clips are just among the cutest and most well-made out there, which I can personally attest to as I have ordered a few myself for gifts.
Many of you may have seen pictures of some of these in my shop listings ( the one above matches our Monroe and Phishy pinafores ) and that is because Kami has created many, many styles specifically to match LG pinnies. She has a new line out, but is a little ahead of me as these are fabrics being used in our new sundresses, which are not available yet ( more on that in a minute ). But, check them out anyway because the best thing is, these can go with ANYTHING, not just an LG item!!
So, about the sundresses.... I had put them aside while working on the website and recently mailed a few off to Allyson for another try at fitting. If they work out, then she'll get some pictures to me and I'll get 'em up on the website! I will still be offering a special "tester" price for the first orders, so stay tuned.
Okay, that's all I better write about for now... I have so much more to share, but if I don't get back to e-mails, I will be receiving some new ones asking why I have time to blog and not write back... I don't particularly have time, but every now and then I just need to take a break. :)
Have a wonderful start to your week!
Back to the abyss....
