LadyBeez Designs response to COVID-19

Yes, you’ve heard from every business that you’ve ever been to…

AND every business you’ve ever mentioned in day-to-day conversation….

But, this is the time we live in.  As far as businesses go, we must keep our customers informed as to what is happening.  Are we staying open?  Are we closing down?

Ugh!  It’s all so hard!

Short and sweet:  I’m a home-based business, and I’m still in business!  I’ve actually designed some amazing pieces already in the last 2 days with some amazing ladies!  All virtually…from designing to fabric ordering.

All of my online fabric suppliers are still in business, and I’ve gotten shipments in record time…which even surprised me!  So, please, don’t hesitate to connect with me or take this time to shop from home!

I will be homeschooling our 4 children when the time comes.  Well, at least, I’ll be trying my best.  If this becomes too much for me along side my business, you will be the first to know!

Until then, I’ll be posting new designs as I make them…and as always, taking custom orders.

Now that that’s out of the way…..here’s what I made today:

This month’s March Meet the Maker on Instagram inspired me to Sew a Little Something for myself this morning…..and I’ve been holding on to this T-shirt for months.

While the kid’s got a “History” Lesson in the Great 1990’s of Cartoon Television known as “The Adventures of the Gummy Bears”  ,  I upcycled that beast into this:

Fitting, no?

And by Y’all….I mean Me…..

and Us.

God Bless You All!  Stay Safe Out There!

Easter in the Shop

The novelty about working from your home…when you are advised to stay home, you continue with “business as usual”

Of course, I am not sure what tomorrow will bring, but, honestly, when do we ever?

Sooooo, I’m just going to jump into it.  I tried a new thing in lieu of my auction group on hold for the moment.  I posted NEW items in the VIP groupat a discounted price.  Those items that weren’t purchased, I added to the SHOP this morning!

This Size 7/8 Upcycled Dress is guaranteed to help you have a HOPPY Day!  (see what I did there?)

And HOW CUTE are these Little Bunny and Chick Friends all ready to Celebrate in a SIZE 6 Upcycled Dress

With Spring comes….GARDENING!!!  I just Love this Size 5T How does your Garden Grow Upcycled Dress!

I’ve been WASHING LOTS of laundry….and it has reminded me just how useful these WASHABLE, REUSABLE Snack bags really are!  Here is my Easter Set…but I’d love your input on other themes you’d like to see!  I’ll make them ALL WEEK LONG!

ThisSize 6 Upcycled Mixed Fiber Dress is ONE of a KINDand available now…How cute are those Bunnies and Rainbows?

For a Size 3T Friends…these Modern Bunny Silhouettes are part of my all time Favorite Spring fabrics!

St Patrick’s Day in the Shop

Happy SPRING Forward Day! 
I hope you are all surviving on one less hour of sleep!  Not going to apologize for it, though, because I got to shave off ONE HOUR of work…so just remember, it’s allll about perspective 😉

Anywhoodle, it’s Sunday in the Shop here, and that means, I’m taking the time to highlight some of the items I have up for sale.  St. Patrick’s Day is the Holiday ‘O the Month of March….and here is what I have in stock yet:

 

Set of 3 Reusable Snack Bags in St. Patty’s Day prints! 

They are fully lined with PUL fabric (which is what you would find lining washable/reusable cloth diapers).  The closure is Velcro, and to clean, I recommend either hand wash and dry OR flip them inside out and throw them in the wash machine!  

Next up, I have this adorable Size 2T, Upcycled Tshirt Dress

Who can resist that Rainbow and CandyLand Fabric!?!?!

The ever SO popular TRIPLE RUFFLE SKIRT

I have this one ready to ship in a Size 4T, but when I say 4T, it will really fit much longer, since this pattern runs large.  Think size 4-6 girls 🙂

Which little girl is going to get to wearthis Size 4/5 Upcycled Tshirt Dressthis St. Patty’s Day? ……Uuuuummmmm, THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!

And, who’s got a Little Irish Sweetie that wears a Size 7/8?  Because I’m pretty sure she NEEDS this Upcycled Knit dress!

Last, but most certainly NOT least, I have one moreSt. Patrick’s Day Mixed Fiber Dress in a Size 10/12.  All ready to ship!

 

That’s all I have left for ye Irish folk!  But there are LOTS more listings available if you want to browse the shop at any time!  Scroll UP….click that SHOP button in the menu and have at ‘er!  (I already have a few Easter Goodies listed…)

Next up I’ll be getting New Inventory ready for Easter….Baseball Season….and Spring in general!  

Let me know what you’re looking forward to….

What would you like to see me make?

Studio Spotlight: First steps of Organization

IMMA try my best to make this a weekly check-in to let you behind the scenes into my sewing studio…  it’s purpose is two-fold, really.

  1. I LOVE to see the behind the scenes of people’s creative spaces!  SO, I’m “giving back” by letting you into mine.  We can learn so much from each other as far as organization (of which I NEED a ton of help) and inspiration!
  2. This will keep my studio space moving forward.  I often only take time to create, and then my studio turns into a terrible mess.  I want to hold myself accountable by sharing my process/progress with you!

 

First things first….I HAVE to tackle all the clutter….but, as I said it. is. very. messy.  So, in order to stop myself from getting overwhelmed and giving up, I am giving myself time to go through and do it right.

This shelf was my first eye sore that I posted on IG for all the world to see.  You can’t even imagine the disaster that lies behind me in this shot.  (I’ll get to that….eventually)

God Bless the Dollar Tree and their plastic bins!

I also tackled my scrap cotton, fleece, and flannel fabric that was EVERYWHERE!  Here are the bins that had to go……

I was able to get rid of about 60% of this by donating to local schools, our church, and friends…next stop, individual teachers that need arts & craft supplies!

 

And while I love all this new order in my life…..I have to tell you, Organization & Purging is NOT my strength.  So, I was pretty proud of myself.  I thought I desired a reward (or three 😉 )

My two chairs got face lifts thanks to Amazon!  (Bonus: now that I have an example of what I need to cover them….when I get sick of these covers, I can sew some of my own!)

Office Chair Cover you can find here 

And, hold on to your 70’s loving heart…cuz I covered this bad boy up too with a s;ipcover like this one

Now, probably the simplest thing….but something that has seriously changed my sewing LIFE: this ruler tape  I put it right in front of me on my sewing table.  MIND BLOWN!  Do you know how many times I have to get up to measure something????  Me either.  I lose track, and this little tape has brought me more joy in the last 3 days that I can even describe.

And, that’s it for this week!  I’d love to hear your organizational tips! I could use all the encouragement I can get!
