Half Year Celebration!

So since everyone knows about Christmas in July I decided to change it up a bit and do a Half Year Celebration on Facebook!!  It will be a giveaway/ auction and will start on 7-25 and run through 8-1.  If you would like more info or would like to donate an item please leave a comment here or e-mail me at: fieldsofsunshine (at) live (dot) com

On a different note I will be starting a new blog in the near future to document mine and my husbands journey to becoming parents. :)  Once I have it up and running I will edit this with a link to it!

Electronics.... oh boy

Ok so as you probably can tell I am having a bit of trouble with my cell phone sending messages to my blog.  So just a quick update on what's been going on!

So our family emergency is still going on but not in the emergency state.  So while we're still on edge about it we're a ton calmer than what we had been.

Clips!  So I'm starting to get more clip orders through my co-workers than online, but that doesn't mean I won't be doing them.  I still have my Etsy store and plan to keep it for a while.  I also have started listing clips on Listia.com.  The winner of the auction will get a special gift from me as well, which is free shipping on their order as long as they both go out together. :)  So keep an eye peeled over there too. :)

Facebook!!  Of course I'm always on Lol.  I have taken a bit of a break from doing giveaways and such since it was starting to cost me more than I was making.  So while I will do some giveaways in the future they will be a bit less.  :)

So I think that is pretty much it at this point, again sorry things are messing up hopefully I'll get the problem solved asap.

Bright Blessings!

Been busy!

I am so sorry I have neglected my blog :(  Forgives me!!!

I have been really busy working on new clips and improving the ones I had.


This is one of my new favorites!!!!  Our lovely little ladybug!  She's only $1.00 too.  She is so cute I wear one to work all the time but...


I usually wear a tiny boutique bow with it!  I'll be making more boutique bows too.  Also we have another new buggie clip in out shop.


Our buzzing bumble bee.  How cute is he!  This is the only bee I will ever let near my hair... he doesn't have a stinger.  hehe

Here comes Peter Cotton Tail....with a giveaway....

Oh yea it's that time of year again!  Lots of chocolate, food, and fun!  Surprisingly my birthday is only a couple of days away from Easter this year so I'm thinking that I might have to do some type of giveaway or game...depends on what my day job hours looks like.  Someone forgot to request off for her birthday this year. Oops.  Oh well I work mornings anyway.

So I need some ideas on what game/ giveaway I should do.  I have done them on Facebook before, but what about for my blog followers... what would you guys like to see?



I did have the idea of doing a couple comment and win giveaways for a couple of my items and maybe some store credit.  Or we could just stick to Facebook, what do you guys think?  I needs some imput!!!

New One Of A Kind flowers

  I know I had told myself that I wouldn't do one of a kind items but when I started working on these I knew I couldn't do another like it.  

They are now up on Etsy, I'll be using the fabrics again, but these are not going to be done again with these same color combinations. 


Do you like buying OOAK items or no?

New Ideas~

  So everyone has seen certain clip, ladybugs, butterflies, and bees being the most common in my opinion.  So I started thinking about new ideas... other bugs, animals, or flowers that you haven't seen or haven't seen much of.  I had a few in mind that I want to work on, one of them being a skunk... ya I know weird but how many skunk ribbon clips have you seen? Lol.


Yea everyone one know Pepe :)

So what other animals would you like to see or haven't seen many of?  I love a new challenge!!

I'm a barbie girl

  I don't know about you but when I was little I loved to play with barbie dolls!  Finding new outfits, mixing and matching, cutting their hair (lol).  So I guess I was sort of destined to learn how to make my own doll clothes.  And that's what I did though it took me some years to really get it.

  So it's been a few... ok more than a few, but any way.  I just wondered are barbies still popular?  or have they been pushed to the back burner by Bratz or Moxie girls? 

  I've been wanting some imput because I found my old dolls and have gotten back into making clothing but don't know if they would sell at all.  What do you think?

Would you buy a wetbag if...

  Would you buy a wetbag that you could not throw in the laundry?  One that would have to be washed by hand?

  As a women using my wetbag for my mama cloths only, it isn't to big of a deal... but what about mom's?  Would you wipe and clean a small wetbag with maybe one diaper in it?  Of maybe one that had makeup in it? What about beach toys, swimsuits, or shoes?

  Are you torn?  Would you clean somethings but not others?  Or none at all?

  Let me hear your comments, this is something I really would love to offer but if it is to much of a hassle to clean I may just pass it up...

Why I have so much stuff...

  Ok so I need to stop getting ideas LOL.  It started off in the new year where I made the resolution to myself to try new things.  I looked around my craft area and saw that I had a ton of fabric and ribbon (left over from my doll clothing days).  So I started doing research on ribbon... oh...my... there were so many beautiful clips out there!  I had found what I wanted to try... *insert a shaking hubby head here*

  So just to keep a long story short... I started making clips and opened my Etsy shop!


~One of my first clips~
   So after starting my clips I then looked at my stash again... and saw so much fabric!  And of course I love love love fabric shopping so it was time to find something to do with it... *insert another shaking hubby head*  And thus our Sweet Slumber Eye Masks were born!


~My personal eye mask~
  So you may ask... why post about this?  We know what you make and sell.  Well I had another idea last month that I have been personally trying out... and I have to say I am in love with it.

  They are up-cycled and are great for all women!  They are super fun to make and I use mine all the time... any ideas???  Hm.... how about a clue....

 it's waterproof....

nothing yet?.....

it fits in your bag....

getting warmer?...

It also can hold diapers, wipes, makeup, beach towel, swim suits....


It's a WETBAG!!  I will hopefully be getting some on Etsy early next week!!

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Some new flower clips

So I found this tutorial on a forum I'm on, and I must say I love love love how these look with these fabrics!


I have three different sizes too, this orange one is the largest with a length of 2.5''.


This is the middle with 2''.


and my favorite and smalles with a length of 1.5''  It's so cute!!!

And then there are these carnations, found some new ribbon and it looks so pretty and fluffy!!



Be sure to check Etsy soon for these :)

Home again in Indiana....

  I am finally home! Yay!  As much as I love my family and want to be with them in this hard time... I really missed home.  I am still getting back in to the swing of things, but thankfully my schedual isn't to hectic.

  I am however working on a few new bows as well as expanding out Sweet Slumber line.

  Here is a preview of what is coming though....
Design re-vamp!

More animals.....

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The viewing was hard, but i know tomorrow will be harder. I will be back sat. :)

Out of Town

  So I don't think I mentioned this very much but I will be gone until Friday 4/1, possibly Saturday depending.  I am heading up North to my cousins funeral.  I will still keep taking orders but note that they will not be processed until I get back.  On a more personal note, please keep my family in your thoughts tomorrow, this is going to be a very sad and stressful time for us, as this is the first suicide our family has experienced.

  Thank you all in advance and bright blessings.

Ouchie Boo Boo Packs?

  So I have seen a lot of these popping up, mostly saying that kids tend to like them more than an ice pack since it doesn't give any "cold burns" as I used to call them.  My question is do they really work?  I made a mini eye mask the other day just for this.

  I left it in the freezer (in a ziplock bag) all day today.  I just tried it on my arm, since the door decided to hit me on the way out of work.  Anyway it doesn't feel as cold as ice... but it still feels cold.  It's doing what I figured it would.  So would you guys be interested in these?  Obviously they would be a bit nicer than the one pictured since this was my tester.  Let me know in the comments!

Giveaway, Day Jobs, and Food

  So we are getting a few new sponsors!!  Yay!  More to be added soon!  I'm so excited, we even have a few large name sponsors! :-O  Hopefully our new fans will like what they see!

  Also just an FYI I'll be a bit busier than usual at my day job.  Didn't realize it till it was to late, but we have multiple people on vacation at the same time (eek) so I got a lot more hours.  So I will still be answering e-mails and trying to post some updates, just be warned it'll take me a bit.  

  Also since I'm working more this week, I'm trying to plan out dinners a bit more so that I can eat leftovers the next day.  I am in need of some new recipes!  I don't have access to lots of meat, but I have veggies out the wazoo (wow that's a fun word).  If you can post me some or leave me a link I would be so grateful!  

  Have a great week!

New Setup on Etsy

  So after thinking about it more, I have changed the way the eye masks are set up on Etsy.  Instead of ordering the scent you want and choosing the fabric I'm putting it the other way around. 



Hopefully this is easier to navigate and more people will want them.  I also have added a waterproof sticker with our shop name to the outside of the pillow, as well as stitching in a color coding system on the inner pillow so it's easier to tell which is which scent.




And~  yes I've been busy...  we have decided to lower the price of the item as well as shipping!  So because of all these updates please be sure to check out the shop, we're always welcome to feedback and custom orders!



We hit 100!!

  We just hit 100 fans on Facebook! YAY!  Looks like a giveaway is in order!  I have an album now open on our page!  BUT!  We are still in need of sponsors, we only have 3 :(  If you would like to donate please let me know!  We will stop taking sponsors on 3/28 and close the album on 4/4!

Thank you all again!

Bright Blessings!

Would you be interested in...

 A discounted eye mask?  I have a couple of my prototypes that ended up needing a minor adjustment but they are fully functional besides that.  I actually use one for my personal mask.  I am thinking of offering them at $10 (shipping included) with one cover.  If there is some interest I'll post them up on Facebook next week.

Our New Line~ and Contest!!

  I am so excited to finally tell everyone about our new line!!!  As I mentioned before I am going to hold a Naming Contest for this product, so please be sure to read to the end!



  This product is something I have been making for friends and family for years.  I have finally decided that others may like them too.  So I am very excited to announce that our new line is....


~Aromatherapy Eye Pillows~

These cute little pillows come with a removable pillow for easy washing.  They are 7in X 3in and filled with dry lentils and home dried scents, such as lavender, orange, lemon, and apple.  I am so excited to finally be selling these as they are so relaxing and work wonders for tired eyes, sinuses, and helping one get to sleep.  I have lots of covers to choose from as well!  From the fleece you see here, to cotton and now brocade!  I also hope to expand the aromatherapy to more exotic and wonderful smells.



Now for the naming contest!!

Everyone has heard of Eye Pillows, so we need to come up with something new!

I will leave the contest open until midnight tonight and will choose the winner on St. Patrick's Day!  

The winner will get one eye pillow of their own with their choice of scent and fabric pillow!


Thank you all so much and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

Possible addition

So I don't think I've talked much about how I learned to sew.
  I promise this will go somewhere so just hang in there :)

I first learned how to sew in school making pin cushions, draw string bags, and such.  I did like it but never did much with it until I was in my senior year in high school.  I was very into anime and Japan and after a bit of saving I was able to go to an Anime Convention.  I was with a few friends of mine and some friends of friends.  One of these girls had brought with her an Asian Ball Jointed doll named Blaize.  I was instantly hooked!  These dolls were unlike any I had seen before, so detailed and they were so customizable.  When I got home I instantly went to google finding doll after doll that I would love to own.  But after searching I found one I had to have.

She was a Dollzone Shoyo and I knew I had to have her.  So after saving up for what seemed like ages she was mine!  I named her Maiya and it was the start of my collection. 

When she finally got home I realized she had no clothes and when I looked online a shirt alone was $10 and that was cheap.  So I dug out my old sewing skills and started hand sewing basic dresses.  I started to see that I really liked sewing and I started to try my hand at patterns that were free off the internet.  After a while I was getting pretty good and I decided to sell some of my items.


Surprising I started getting more and more orders and for Christmas of that year I got my sewing machine!  I tell you what I was never so happy!  I started right away sewing as much as I could!  Dresses, pants, anime costumes, slippers, I wanted to try it all!

Eventually though I started a new job that took up a lot of my time and my dolls and sewing have taken the back burner.  I only recently started to get back into again.

So now that you have read all that here is what I am getting at.  Would you or someone you know be interested in doll clothing?  Not just for the ABJD, but for barbies, American Girls, etc?  If there is some intrest I will probably start adding some doll clothing to my Etsy shop as well.

As always comments are appreciated!

Bright Blessings~

I'm also always looking for feedback and ideas!  If you have something you would like to see please leave me a comment!  Thanks guys!!!

So Houghton Happenings is having a giveaway for a $25.00 gift certificate to MILK.  Milk has lots of different styles of nursing wear and though I am not nursing I am going to bookmark this site for future use.  I love love love the fact they have a plus sized section and it doesn't look like hospital wear. Lol.  My favorite item is the Geo Print top which is on sale for $9.99!! 

Thanks again to Houghton Happenings for having this giveaway!

Ideas for Etsy

So I have started to think of things I would like to put up on Etsy.  I want my store to be a bit of everything, but focusing on comfort and relaxation.  The next few days I'll be drafting a few more patterns and getting some more examples up.

Until then I'm still in limbo, but getting closer.  I am thinking about having a "Grand Opening Giveaway" soon after to see about getting some fans as well as maybe sending out some items to review.

So what kind of things would you like to see with comfort and relaxation?

Shoes! Need Critique!

So I used to make these slippers for my dolls, and they were a huge hit.  I took a break from sewing for a bit since my job started to get busier and my hours went from 10 a week to 30.

But I finally dug out my old pattern and re-sized it for a baby.  And this is what I came up with tonight!

They still need a bit of work, but for a first attempt I'm pretty happy.  I am only worried about the sizing.  Since I don't have any children/ shoes, I don't have much to go off of.   I have a couple friends who have babies, but I'm not sure if that would work as far as sizing because every kid is different... maybe I should just go by measurements?  What do you guys think?

Also I'm always up for critique!  Let me know what you would like to see, buttons, bows, ribbons, etc.

Bright Blessings!

OK so we still are in frigid temps, but the sun is out!! It is shining in our window as we speak.  I am loving it!  I am in such a good mood from just the sun being out.  I baked a dozen muffins, did dishes (my least favorite chore), and am now listening to one of my favorite singers PINK.  She has a new song out, well new for me, and I have no way to say how much I love love love love it!  It's called F*cking Perfect.  Oh course it's not child friendly, but it really does hit home with me.  If you get the chance look it up.

Have a great day and I hope the sun is shining for you!!!

So I know that hubs and I are still trying for children, but I see no problem in being prepared.  Thus said I have been entering all the giveaways I can!  Today I got something I have been looking forward to!  It's a BabyBond!  If you haven't heard of them here is a  link to their website

I do have my heart set on breastfeeding, or at least giveing it a try.  When I saw this as a giveaway I instantly in love.  I think I entered a total of 3 giveaways for one before I actually won.  So it came in the mail today and I have to say I can't wait! 


I love the fact it comes with it's own holder!  I got the black since I wear it the most and the fact I love black. Lol. 

(Sorry for the bad picture) This is how it looks totally rolled out, it comes with a burp cloth and it also has a place to hold it in place. 

So all in all it really is nice, wonderfully made.  It fits really nice to, though no picture of that, I was getting ready for work and was able to snap a few pictures before running off. 

Also totally random I am so glad I finally figured out how to post pictures!!!
