No time to photograph

I have been working on a number of items that have gone out without me taking pictures! This included 12 hats that I dropped off at a local store a few weeks ago.

I did manage to snap a some quick picts of these cute hats. Similar but just the colour of the inside of the flower is different.
This is the ever popular flapper beanie in Ivory with a rose pink double flower. One flower has a celery centre the other has a soft teal centre. I can make you a hat of any colour combination too either through my Etsy store or my iCraft shop

And I managed to take better pictures of this hat. The previous pictures didn't show it off very well.
What I really need to do is make some hats to send off to my photographers again. Oh and make some hats for the upcoming November shows! I feel so behind already. Note to self - contact the retailers soon to get their fall orders. Ack!

I've also been working on lip balm cozies that I will be selling again with the proceeds going to The Weekend To End Breast Cancer. My team, The Groovy Boobie Girls has a goal to raise $20,000! Not bad for a bunch of chicks:) I have a few cozies ready, just waiting for the amazing buttons from Gillian of Brillian Beads. She's once again making me some amazing handmade lampwork pink ribbon buttons for these cozies. And Krysta from Carvel Country Soaps is going to make some yummy lip balm for me to go with the cozies this year! They'll have a special Groovy Boobie Girl label and will come in Strawberry, Raspberry and Cherry flavours! Stay tuned!

28 Hats Down, 54 To Go!

I finished the first 3rd of an order. Here's the first 26 hats I completed and shipped off to Denver. Woo Hoo. And his is what they look like:)

I also made these 2 lip balm cozies which I listed in my Etsy shop. I'm still donating 80% of all items with pink (and all lip balm cozies- pink or not) to Breast Cancer until July 15! Shop for a cause:) The lady bug one has already sold - Thanks for your support!

Newborn Hat in Action

hehe - a couple of weeks ago I had a local photographer ask if I could make her a hat for a photo session that coming weekend. Of course I could! Check out her too blog posts for a picture of the sweet baby boy sporting a newborn Loopy 4 Ewe hat. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE seeing little ones (and big ones) wearing on of my hats! Meep:)

Here's Kim's blog post 1 - scroll to the last picture for the hat pict: Introducting Baby "C"

And the 2nd post (top photo!) - The Rest of Baby "C"

I showed this hat a few posts ago - here, but seeing them flat just doesn't do them justice.
