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?

What’s Up with this Auction stuff?

Hey-YO!

It’s my Birthday Month….and now it’s my birthday WEEK!  HOLLA!!!!!

I wanted to take a moment and explain all the good things I’ve got planned for you with the beginning of this new season in our lives.  The school year is always crazy busy and stressful and new and exciting…and this year, for the 1st time in 12 years, I am child-free during all of the school hours.  (well, unless one of our 4 cherubs gets sick or I am volunteering or field tripping)  So, on the days that I am not resting up from working night shift in da lab….I. AM. SSSSSEEEEEWWWWWIIIIINNNGGGG!!!!!!!!

It’s glorious.

What this means is more goodies for you!  YAY!  Everybody wins!

You may recall I was pondering ways to grow my business, but also streamline the process more.  This might be a surprise that I added another venue to my sales platform, but I promise it means lots of good things for us all.

What I am referring to is: Red Rose Auction House

It’s a multi-vendor auction page hosted on Facebook that I joined the beginning of September.  Basically, it is the place I will post all my sales, auctions, deals, and steals….and as a few of you have already been blessed with  (there are STEALS over there!)  Everything I post will be well under retail price….so get over there if you want some LadyBeez Designs at killer prices.  Once the sale or auction is over, those items will return to regular price and be listed in my Etsy shop.  Make sense?

Added bonus:  all the other vendors have ADORABLE items too!  And GREAT quality!  I have been bidding and winning items as a customer for almost a year and have scored the most amazing bows, necklaces, earrings, cups, decor items, and more!

Quick Recap:

LadyBeez Designs FB Page to stay in the Loop with all the things

Red Rose Auction House for Flash Sales and Auctions

VIP Group for preorders and exclusive buys (like today I posted a couple Packer items at 1/2 time of the game)

LadyBeez Etsy Shop for Ready to Ship and Made to Order Listings

AND, as always, message me for custom orders.  You know I love those! 😉

Sewing My Stash Off, Week 3: Letter M

It’s only week 3, and I’m already breaking my own rules.

I’m not going to lie, this gave me great anxiety all week, and I almost printed a letter C pattern Thursday morning because I thought I was letting myself down….failing at my goals….letting my people down…..and then I realized

I made up this weird challenge…and I’m the only one participating….so who would know the difference? Me. Obviously (insert eye roll emoji)

I am, however, powering through. I keep telling myself it’s fine. I figure if I say that enough, by next week, I’ll believe it. (harder eye roll emoji)

Anywhoodle, the reason M follows B in the little alphabetical challenge I’m playing is I joined a Sew-A-Long this week….and I think you’ll enjoy the results.

The Pattern is named Mattia. (From CKC Patterns who also hosts these fun SAL on Facebook)

This pattern is available in Girls….Babies….Tweens…Women….and wait for it…..

Dolls!!!!

Oh my goodness! Look at the cuteness of these Dolly and Me sets I made.

I didn’t break any other rule…these were all out of my Stash fabrics….hence the creative color coordinates

And I will be listing them for sale as sets in my Winter Love Sale on Facebook….

Because it’s Wisconsin here….and it’s FREEZING…..I couldn’t think of a better use of some FLEECE!

The pattern features a cross body wrap look on front and back with an asymmetrical skirt (hi-lo)

And in case you were wondering….the twirl game is strong with this one!

And, I can’t forget to mention….the doll pattern is sized for 14″, 15″, and 18″ dolls!  Just so they are all included 😉

Do you know a little girl that needs a set? ❤️❤️
