Custom orders

One great option that I offer is custom orders. Custom ordering is great for many reasons; it allows you to be part of the creative process, you end up with an one-of-a-kind piece that no one else has, and you can even create something out of the norm such as this headband created with pink and brown with feathers. Perfect for a princess, thanks Mary for the great vision I hope she likes it :)

Miss Maddie Apparel

It took me a while to figure out if I wanted to start adding custom clothing to Miss Maddie, and I saw a little newborn at a craft fair in a navy blue tye dyed onesie and he looked so adorable I had to try worked perfectly!! I love that each tye dye comes out different, and especially in this fuscia dye; I love it. Of course I needed to add a little bling, and I love it even more!!

New Bows...

I am constantly looking for new ideas and ways to enhance what I am already creating! I did have a request to post a picture of some larger width ribbon - this hot pink one isn't too big, it's about 1" and simple tied, but I love the white stitching and this ribbon comes in a TON of colors. I also found these great character buttons (shown with the butterfly version) and I think they are so cute. I can order them in any color or style - I am making some with a ladybug at the moment, but also come in sports (soccer ball, softball, football, etc.) cheer megaphones, Holiday themes (candy canes, reindeer, etc.), flowers - just about anything you can think of! I think it adds a little something extra...

Flower Power

I attached a couple pictures of the flower accessories I created. Please remember I make accessories - I am not a photographer!! But I will be having some professional shots taken ASAP for this blog and future website. These can be made in pretty much any color and size and headbands are one size fits all. Next to come...Hydrangea caps :)

New Products on the way!!

Here are a couple new bows I did this weekend, the green and gold bows are to match a school uniform, and the pink ones were designed for a young girl whose mother's request was "big and shades of pink"! I have been working on some new designs including those with silk flowers. I will be putting up some pictures ASAP of flowering headbands, flowering caps and a couple other surprises as well...stay tuned...

Busy, busy, busy.....

Busy is good! I have some more orders coming in which makes me happy! I am also working on many new accessories and designs (thanks Kristie for the great ideas). I try to take in as much criticism and as many suggestions as possible, and take everything into consideration when deciding on what to create and offer my clients. I look forward to a busy Holiday season this year. Here is a new one I created last night with this fun zebra ribbon!

I have completed a few new designs in the last couple days. One is navy and forest green attached to french clips to match an elementary school uniform for a beautiful little girl I know. The triple pink bow attached to an alligator clip is for another little beauty who has gorgeous dark brown hair - the contrast will look great! And the hot pink with feathers is for a little one who is on her way, which I love, love, love - I can't wait to see her in it. I am also working on a crochet headband in dark red with a large maroon and dark red hydrangea (silk) on it for my daughter to try out, if I like it it will be her accessory for our Christmas photos this year. I hope it turns out as I would like to add headbands to Miss Maddie :)

Although I am just getting the ball rolling with this new "project", I think it's going to work out great. I am eager to design new styles and get more Miss Maddie accessories out there. I have been working ona few for the season, Halloween, harvest, Thanksgiving and even starting on Christmas themes. I am hoping to outreach to my area here before Christmas shopping takes a turn as these are great stocking stuffers. I know my sweetie pie will be wearing them :) Here are a few I just finished in the last week or so.
