Happy Easter!

  I hope everyone has a great Easter today!  We don't have much planned today, just work.  Tomorrow, though we are going to my parents for Easter dinner/ my birthday party. Yay! 

So in celebration of both Easter and my birthday I decided to offer 40% off any order today only!  But you'll have to check our my page to find it :) 

 I also was able to re-make our Dainty Dragonfly clip tonight, I really like this one better.

So I'll be around on both Facebook and on Etsy.  If you need me for anything please e-mail at:  fieldsofsunshine (at) live (dot) com

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... 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!!

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!!
