Happy Mail, Re-Ment, and Custom Orders

I would like to thank everyone that purchased and inquired about purchasing the items in my Etsy shop. I am so pleased that the things I create are met with such enthusiasm! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I have been busy with so much outgoing mail that it was nice to get some incoming mail for a change. I finally got to purchase some Louos Loves creations! I have been waiting forever to snag some of his stuff, but whenever I come up on one of his sales posts at TIB, everything has been sold out. Aren't these Louos Loves tees adorable? I love the prints and all the pink!

In more happy mail news, I finally received my Arte du Blythe fat book! Yippee! It definitely lived up to its name -- it is a very FAT book chock full of artfully adorned pages. Thank you to everyone who participated in this project and especially to Gina of Blythe-O-Mania Untamed for all her hard work to make it happen. It was so much fun!

My new obsession du jour are Re-Ment miniatures. I was so thrilled to discover that they sell them here in Hawaii. It is a blessing and a curse because now that I know they are in the vicinity I have the constant urge to pick up another box. And another. And another. 24 boxes so far and counting. Scary.

As for my Etsy shop, I am still working on the cupcakes, owls, and some new Blythe outfits, but my focus on them has taken a little detour as I accepted a few custom orders on my apron dress sets and my sundae hats. I've been a bit wary about taking custom orders in the past because of my willy-nilly nature. I've always been afraid that I would never finish them in a timely manner or that I would rush them out, and they would not be done as well as if I took my time. Thankfully, I finished the following apron dress set and sundae hats in relatively short order (for me, at least).

Thank you, Megumi!

Thank you, Alisa!

Thank you, Evelyn!

And thank you all for dropping by once again!

Loovee is extremely lucky to have such groovy shirts! They are very pink and well made.

That Fat book looks pretty neat. I like how it's filled with so many creative surprises.

24 boxes of Re-ment! That's a whole lot of love. Make sure you pace yourself with that obsession and don't go too crazy with it...save some for the rest of Hawaii. ;)

Omigosh... they sell rement here? I tried looking on their website but I don't know any of those places! If you don't mind, I'd love to know where to get some rement goodness; I really like the mushroom and strawberry sets!

Re-ment is definitely addictive. i can't stop buying them. Anyhoo, I'm loving the fat book and the dresses...OMG! These are too cute! If you're still taking custom orders, I would love to order a few because I can't compete with everyone on your etsy update. Slow poke lil' me.

What a great collaboration on the Fat Book! It looks very fun, textural, and interesting.

You are so so lucky to be able to buy Re-ment locally! WOW! Imagine, you will have so many little things to put in Loovee's kitchen now! Fun!

I was so crazy about Re-Ment, I spend over $1000 dollars on trying to collect them all.... even I couldn't believe it myself.
