New goodies on the site!

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then you already know that I've been keeping some secrets and I was bursting at the seams in anticipation of the day I could let the cat out of the bag. But yesterday, we finally got the shipment in of my new, totally fabulous Designer Pins and we worked around the clock photographing, editing and uploading them to the site, because I just couldn't wait one more day to share these with you.

Just look at these candy-licious colors!!


I could just eat them up, but then again, I wouldn't want to end up like my friend, Jana. But I digress... the pin heads are molded in the shapes of two of my favorite Grand Bazaar fabric designs... the Spades and the Spears. Here are the Splendid Spears...


I worked alongside Brewer to produce this exciting new product line and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The pins come inside cute little tins like these, 100 pins in each tin...


And the tins are embossed with my logo (squeal!!!)


And as if that wasn't adorable enough, the whole kit & caboodle comes beautifully packaged in a custom-designed clear box, perfect for gift-giving (or to keep for yourself, whatever floats your boat!)



And what do you think of the names, Splendid Spears and Spade Parade? Jon came up with those all on his own.... see, we all chip in on the creative process around here!

Our Designer Pin Tins are available on our website now, so stock up for the Holidays... these are perfect for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts or for your sewing group gift exchange! :)


No, they are not that big... haha... that is a dolly-sized dress up there ^^^ (the Mini-Naomi)!

On other news, a few of you expressed an interest in purchasing the kits my students used in my Creative Connection classes, so we have made a few more and they are now listed on our website in very limited quantities. These kits include EVERYTHING you need to make these two projects, including the printed pattern, the fabric and all the notions needed (even the thread!!)...

Here is the French Window Pillow Cover kit:
