A Week Full of New Ideas :)

Good Morning!!

What an eventful week here in Fairytale land :)  I am so excited to be creating children's clothing again.  It if refreshing, whimsical and full of girliness.

Today I am planning on introducing a new "over the top" set.  I had a wonderful customer ask me to do a custom Princess and the Frog set.  How could a girl not be excited about something Disney?  Our house is full of Princesses and we are always watching Disney movies around here, so when I heard the words Princess and the Frog I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do :)  The fabrics and so amazing and all the painted details just brought it all together.  I will be listing her this evening, but here is a sneak peek of what is to come:

Tomorrow is Hodge Podge I think I am going to offer a super sale on Upcycle dresses.

Next week is full new stuff as well....feather apron dress, 'over the top" Christmas set and a coat.

There is tons of new and exciting things going on.  Make sure you check back every week to see the new creations as well as get the chance to win something awesome every Weds!  Have a great rest of the week :)
Hugs, Amber

Ready or Not....Here I Come!!

As a child, one of my favorite games was hide'n'seek.  For the past 6 months I have been playing the game in my adult life.  I can say that it doesn't have the same effect now that I am grown...but I can say I am excited to be found! 

After being away from the Custom Boutique world for a while I can finally say I will be back in full force in October.  There is just something about creating children's clothing that gives me those butterflies in my tummy....takes me back to the carefree, barefoot days of childhood.  Who would think doing something so minor could make someone feel so free. 

I have been planning my grand enterance for quite a few months now...debating on how to go about making the best of my journey.  Well, I have to say I think I can offer something unique to every price range out there.  From my "over the top" crazy appliqued sets to a more shabby vintage style I am planning on offering a wide variety of price ranges, styles and items. 

What's new you ask?  Let's start with ebay....ebay and I have a love hate relationship.  I used to LOVE I have to say I am growing away from it.  The fees are outrageous, it is boring and groups just aren't the "in thing" anymore.  So, I will be placing my focus on Etsy, Facebook, my blog and my website.  Each week I will be offering different specials, One of a kinds and freebies on facebook.  I will be updating my blog weekly and updating my site regularly! 

Here is the weekly schedule for Facebook:
Monday Madness: Special Skirt or Set at an Awesome Price!
Give it away Tuesday: Something free for my Amazing customers!
One of a Kind Wednesday: A One of a Kind Ready to ship set!
Blog it Thursday: What's going on in Fairytale land!
Fabo Friday: Hodge Podge kinda day...something different!

This schedule will be the same every week so it will be easy to keep track of what is going on around here :)

Another fun thing I will be adding to the designs is a custom doll.  The name of the doll line is LillyLayne.  They will be soft dolls with vintage features and matching clothing.  Dolls have been something I have always wanted to make so after much experimenting I have finally created the perfect one :)

All the fun starts on October 10th....

So, as I begin the next chapter in my life and with Bullfrogs'N'Fireflies I finally ready to yell at the top of my lungs....

Hugs, Amber :)

Gnomeo...where for art thou Gnomeo!

It seems like forever since I have done a blog post...probably because it has been!  Like everyone else life has kept me busy not only with the custom children's clothing, but now with my custom bridalwear

Blogging is something I really enjoy, so I have decided that I will be doing a weekly blog here to show you my new creations, trends and fun little things going on in my life.

I have been working on several new projects Gnomeo and Juliet, Pinnochio, Cinderella and Harajuku.  This past week I listed Gnomeo and Juliet on ebay.  It is ending today :
Here are some pictures of the set.  Hope you enjoy them.  I will be sharing a sneak peek of Pinnochio on Monday...hope you stop back by and check him out!  Have a wonderful weekend...Hugs, Amber :)
