New! Feature Friday...

I've decided to start something new here on the ol' blog: Feature Friday! Every Friday (hopefully) I'll choose 4 products/sellers from Etsy and feature something from their shop. Fun, isn't it? I haven't decided if I'm going to have a theme every week or not, so we'll see. This week I just picked items from my Favorite Sellers' shops. Check them out!

New! Zippered Tissue Cases

If anyone has been keeping up, you'll know that I love "in-the-hoop" embroidery projects. "In-the-Hoop" projects, for those unfamiliar with machine embroidery, means that the design is sewn completely (or almost) by the machine. I love this. Anything that I can do quicker and easier I totally go for. So, when I saw this design by GG Designs Embroidery, I got it immediately. I finally had a chance to stitch it out this morning, and voila! Love!

I can see making tons of these things, they're so useful. Not only are they great for tissues, but you can put in makeup, cell phones (it's a bit snug for an iPhone), iPods, personal items....anything!
Guess what my kids' daycare teachers are getting for Christmas?
I only have one made up so far, but plan on doing many more and having them available in the shop. If you just can't wait and need one immediately, just let me know.

Things are a-changin'...

Look a little different around here? With the re-opening of the Sugar Plum Delights Etsy shop, I decided to do a little updating. I added a new background to the blog, changed a few things on the sidebar, added some things...just general mid-summer cleaning, I guess. I was going to add a widget for Twitter, but I can't seem to get anything to work for it. Suggestions?

I also made the decision today to close down my website. I haven't had time to work on it, and it wasn't getting much traffic anyway. So, I decided to stick with free(ish) things like Etsy, Blogger, Flickr, Twitter, and Facebook. My next project is to update my Flickr page, possibly by the end of the week.

Other than that, there hasn't been too much happening in Sugar Plum Land. I work on new crafty things to add to the shop when I have a chance, which doesn't happen often with an almost-three-year-old and a three-month old! But be sure to check back though, and see what might be new!

And, don't forget that I'm offering FREE SHIPPING on everything in the shop until July 31st! Don't wait!

Mini Market Totes!

Get them while they're hot! I'm taking orders for the mini version of the hugely popular Market Totes! They do not have lids so it's incredibly handy to just toss stuff in there. My daughter used one as an Easter basket this year, and she loved it. She still carries it around with toys and who knows what else in there. I'm sure there are goldfish crackers stuffed in the inside zipper pocket.

For Halloween this year, I'm going to personalize a black one for her to use while trick-or-treating. How cute would that be? I'll have to play with designs, but I'm thinking of adding a pumpkin or a witch along with her name.

This is a slightly different style than what's pictured above, but still basically the same. They collapse flat for easy storage when not in use.

Colors available are: Black, brown, light pink, hot pink, royal blue, red, yellow, Kelly green, purple, royal purple (think LSU purple), orange, turquoise, lime, and navy

Please let me know as soon as possible if you're interested! They're going fast!
The price on the mini's is $15. Personalization included! Larger totes are also available; just email me for more info!

Coming Soon!

We'll be back soon, I promise! The last 6 months have flown by and lots has happened, but we're gearing up to get the shop open again ASAP! There will be new crayon rolls, new totes, keychains, bibs and burps, and lots of other fun stuff! Something new that's a personal favorite is...Monster Pillows!

These are the cutest things, and kids just love them. They can even be personalized, if you wish! I'm also working on Crayon Roll Party Packs, Birthday Party Packs, and Craft Kits of various sorts.

So, stay tuned, and be on the lookout for our Grand Re-Opening, happening soon! There may even be a never know!

Here's what I have been working on while the shop has been closed:
