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!!!!

Starting to overhaul!

  So like I mentioned I am starting to overhaul my Etsy shop.  After thinking about it I decided that I would just start a whole new store.  It would take a bit more time, but that's ok.  So my goal now is to have everything up on the new store by Wed. March 16.  I will have a new theme and color scheme too, hopefully it'll look tons better :)  

So here is the link to the new store though i'm still staying with the same name.

Earring Holder

So I just started wearing earrings again for work.  Makes me feel a bit more put together.  Only problem I keep forgetting I have them, they usually sit around my supply area.  So I finally made my own earring holder.  Yea it's rough but it does the job :)

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!
