Mamie Originals has closed.

Hi there! In case you didn't hear, I've closed Mamie Originals so that I can focus on my two new businesses, Cherry Momma (rock n' roll goodies for children and the adults that love them) and Lightning Bug Designs (e-commerce for the crafty set). I'm still selling off a bunch of fabric at Mamie Originals with a TON more to add, so be sure to head over there to check it out!

Today's not my day:

  • I posted an update on here earlier, which my web browser ate.
  • I made a new dress style for my daughter's birthday party, which is Saturday, and I messed it up. So now I have to rip out all of the stitching connecting the skirt to the bodice and see if I can fix it. =(
  • I have several orders to make tomorrow, which wouldn't be so bad, but....
  • I have four craft shows this week and don't have enough inventory and hardly any time to make more.
  • Oh. And the whole family's sick.

The good news is that Mamie Originals was accepted to BUST Magazine's Holiday Craftacular! So we'll be headed up to New York City for the December 17th show. How exciting!

Now if I could just get my sewing machine to make everything for me while I sleep......

Sneak peak of new product!

Hey there! I was hoping to be able to get these booties on the website tonight, but hopefully soon. Maybe even tomorrow night. They'll be the one thing I carry that I don't actually make. I bought a pair of these booties for my daughter and thought they were so cool that Mamie Originals just HAD to have them. So I contacted the maker of these wonders, Jen Fishback of Ravens Song Maille, and we worked it out! You can choose from the classic black with red accent OR you can custom design your own by choosing the main color as well as the accent! We have 19 colors to choose from, so your possibilities are pretty much endless.

Anyway, enough chat! Here they are:

Aren't they the cutest?! You know you can see your little punker in them! I'll have them up on the website soon, I promise!
