making tonnes of pouches (have about 24 cut- yeah right ill get them all sewn in one day :P)
fresh! and New! fabrics- soooo amny new cute designs! scottie dogs, monkeys, fruits, bunnies, mushrooms!! eep!
no lables tho, ive run out so they will be cheaper :D
i think i might have gotten carried away with the recent pouch prices ('but theyre my last labels tho' whines the mini bear) and will probably reduce them when i get these new ones sewn :)


i got a german online shop!!
its totally hell! i cant read german and translators suck.. luckily the layout is Etsy's doppleganger and ive already found the forums in english AND a lovely german girl re-translated my shop header (which was previously reading 'New wine accessory equiptment, japanese wovens and the beyond' or something like that)
when it should read: Neue Vintage-Accessoires, japanische Stoffe und Mehr!

right now ive been trying to re-edit the lovely translation that girl gave me but the freaking internet is making me cry. i really dont know why the connection is SO SLOW and im getting those weird proxy time outs forever like seriously 3 hours.

so im going to have to stick with the wine shop in my new german site till the internet starts behaving. its only on the german site tho. ARGH. coz here i am on my blog...

my new german shop:

check it out! its my etsy shops twin.

new stuff! new loves!!

ok so i made the perfect love locket and key cameo necklace and here it is: (edited to add links) click on pics to go to listings:

two new! linen pouches with japanese prints and cute buttons!
edit: im actually going to change this button, its totally been bugging me :D haha i keep thinking it needs to be a wooden one like the other linen pouch... found another lazer cut wood button but its just a weird oblong shape.

then i show you these lovely cameo pins:
EDIT: hey this lovely pin is in Mintage! :D Its $25 Canadian. Go check it out! (see links on the top for mintage :)

and my new favorite holly hobbie necklace with amazing rare vintage chain made from dapped bars with ball points and amythest glass channels:

and hello you cant go wrong with these- price wise or style wise!
