The last post.
April 27, 2009

This will be my last post in this blog.  I’m going to be moving everything from the site back to my Etsy shop. As much as I love having my own site, I do so much better on Etsy! The site will still be up until next month when my hosting expires, then will take you to my Etsy shop.

Thank you for all of your support! xo


Oh man.
April 20, 2009

As in, “Oh man, am I behind with my blogging!”

There won’t be any new items added to the shop today…hopefully a few tomorrow or later on in the week. I have some new bags in the works! I’m going to start introducing things to Lemonade Accessories that are similar to the things that I’ll be carrying in Olive and Jude so that everyone can get a feel for the new shop.

Three new eyeglass cases were added last week…perfectly Spring!

aviaryAviary Eyeglass Case – $8

Elizabeth Eyeglass Case – $8

Jelly Bean Eyeglass Case – $7

Newsy news
March 16, 2009

I totally just made that phrase up.

Anyway, some changes coming to the shop. Good changes. Changes that will make things easier for me and (hopefully) easier for you. It’s actually only one change: new items will be added on Mondays. That’s typically my day off at the coffee shop so that leaves my day wide open to add new lovelies for everyone. Another reason I decided on this is the fact that I can make things during the weekend and have them up in the shop (sunlight permitting, photographing the items, you know) on Monday. To preview what will be added, I’m going to blog them (or most of them) on Sunday.

And I know I’ve totally been slacking on the Inspire me Wednesday posts but I don’t have my laptop. I mean, I have it but it’s dead, therefore, I cannot access my cute graphic that I made. Also, I can’t pinpoint what’s been inspiring me lately. I honestly think it’s the fact that I feel our house is too cluttered and if I make things out of my supplies, they will sell and then the house will be less cluttered and we’ll have some extra money. How do I put that into a picture for you? I could take pics of my house but then I would realize that it’s actually not cluttered at all. Anyway. I’ll be back with them this Wedneday for real.

So this week only two things will be added to the shop because I just came up with this idea yesterday. I can sew fast but not that fast.

Elizabeth Make-Up Bag – $10

Jordy Pleated Pouch – $9


I hope you’ll stop by the shop tomorrow!

Gifts and Swaps and Snow, oh my!
February 17, 2009

I haven’t been updating the shop with new things lately…not because I haven’t been making things. Oh no. Remember that thing called the Superbowl? Remember how I don’t like football that much? Yea? Well, while Kyle and friends were downstairs watching the game, I was upstairs cutting like a crazy lady. I seriously cut out about 5 or 6 pleated pouches and 3 or 4 wristlets. Over the next week, I sewed up two of those wristlets and 3 of the pouches. The other ones have yet to be sewn because I don’t have the right zippers for them. Note to sef: order more zippers.

So anyway, I have yet to put the things I did sew in the shop because the weather lately has been so gloomy. It’s snowed some days and just been cloudy others. Of course, when I have to work at the coffee shop, the sun comes out and it’s a beautiful day. I can’t wait until this summer when it’s daylight all the time!

So since I can’t sew up those other items and I can’t photograph the things I did finish, I decided to get started on the baby gifts I planned to make. My boss, Heidi, is due March 31st and my cousin, Kristen, is due June 22nd. I’m not going to post Kristen’s gifts here until after she’s opened them. 😉


These are Heidi’s. I made her two burp cloths, two wash cloths, and a blanket. I’m really pleased with how the blanket (the one with yellow trim) turned out! She’s having a girl and I was afraid this wasn’t girly enough but then I remembered that Heidi herself isn’t very girly.

Another thing keeping me away are a few swaps. I’m doing a grocery tote swap over on Craftster and a few ATC swaps on SISTV. I’ve finished my cards for the first ATC swap but I’m gonna wait a bit to do the cards for the second because they’re not due until late March. My next focus will be the grocery tote!

Valentine Giveaway #3
February 3, 2009

It just seems like Tuesdays work better for me. 😉

This week’s giveaway is a “How to Keep Your Husband” make-up bag! Deliciously retro and great for more than just make-up…


All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me something you love (doesn’t have to be a person!) For instance, I love my cat when he’s not waking me up at 6AM. On Saturday, I’ll use the random number generator to pick a winner!

All coin pouches are $5 through Feb. 10! Pick one (or a few) up for yourself or your valentine!

The grey wristlet from my last post will be added to the shop today!

Sicky McSick
January 29, 2009

I apologize for the lack of giveaway this week. Sunday, I was horribly sick with what I thought was food poisoning. Turns out, it was, more than likely, stomach flu because Monday? Kyle was just as sick. Tuesday morning was spent at the doctor with Kyle, hoping they had an appointment open for him. They didn’t so Wednesday morning was also spent at the dr. After we got done there, I went to the university to take the CLEP (I passed, yay!) All this while having to work in the afternoons. I’m exhausted.

The point of this post wasn’t just to tell you all not to come to my house because you’ll surely get sick, I also wanted to show off some things that will be coming to the shop soon!



The pouch is a new coin pouch design. I love it! What do you think?

Also, I now own the domain So you can take or leave the dash, you’ll get to me eiher way!

Valentine Winner #2
January 24, 2009

You guys had some good picks! My favorite love song has to be “In My Life” by the Beatles. I wanted that to be our wedding song but Kyle didn’t like it so we went with “Open Arms” by Journey. Still a good one, though. Anyway, on to the winner!


Congrats, Reeva! I’ll email you in a bit  to get your address!

My funny Valentine, sweet comic Valentine…

Monday Giveaway
December 8, 2008

I was going to wait until Thursday to do this because that’s when I typically do giveaways but that might be too late. So this giveaway will end on Thursday.

This week I have one more set of ornaments!


Just leave me a comment telling me your favorite part of the holiday season. On Thursday morning, I’ll use the random number generator to pick a winner.

Happy Holidays all!
