Lizzie, Izzie + James.

My new website, Lizzie, Izzie + James is now live! A few months ago, I mentioned that I was working on re-branding Skylar's Candy Clips into a new venture. Here it is, all set and ready to go! I've kept some of my designs from Skylar's Candy Clips but I've also added a lot of new styles and products.

Some of the changes include an upgrade in materials. Lizzie, Izzie + James only uses premium quality, 70-100% wool felt. This results in products that are not only brighter and look better, but are also more durable and longer lasting. There is also just FREE SHIPPING on orders over $75 or a FLAT SHIPPING RATE of $3 regardless of the number of items in your purchase. Turnaround time is much faster too - orders will now generally ship within 24 hours.

I've also expanded my line of felt crowns, headbands, and hair clips.

One thing that you will also notice is that the website has it's own blog section. After this post, I will no longer be using blogger for my blog posts. So this will be my last entry here:( If you want to subscribe to the new blog, please go on the website and subscribe to the blog feed. Doing so will let me keep you updated on new products, special offers, and limited time events.

There are big plans in store for Lizzie, Izzie + James. Look for more new products coming up in Spring 2011 and also a product line extension towards the end of the summer.

I am giving out a special introductory discount of 15% off your purchase - just for my blog readers. Just use the coupon code ETSY15 (valid until Feb 14 2011).

I hope that you continue to follow me in my new venture. Sign up for my new blog and our new page on facebook. I would love to hear your feedback on the website!

Where have I been?

I'm still here! Just been busy these last few months. Very, very busy. I've been working on something big. BIG.

I've decided to expand Skylar's Candy Clips. New products. New website (my VERY OWN website!). New packaging. Eeeek!!! I am so excited, I'm jumping out of my pants!

There you go. That is the real reason I've been MIA and my Etsy shop is on vacation mode. Let me fill you in on some very exciting details. First off, Skylar's Candy Clips will now be under the new company, Lizzie, Izzie, & James, LLC. The name was picked out from three wonderful little people who are the darndest, sweetest, things to me - my kids. "Lizzie" (Elizabeth), "Izzie" (Isabelle) and "James" are their middle names. Here's the new logo:

The second thing that we did was to upgrade my supply stash. We switched to the highest quality felt - wool felt. Between 70% to 100% wool felt to be exact. Yummy enough for you?

This picture shows some colors that I'm using in 30% wool because they are not available in either 70 or 100% but believe me, the quality is to die for!

We hired a web designer, photographer, and a branding company to work together in forming my new website, and packaging. We are hoping to be up and running before Christmas. Hopefully! In the meantime, I am busy working on the new designs, samples for the models and photographer, and putting together a small inventory for the holiday rush.

So please be patient as I go through this new journey. More updates on our progress soon!

Canada bound {and some cuteness}.

Just wanted to share some cuteness with you.
This is Knuckles. My brother Kevin's puppy.
Isn't he just the most adorable bundle of fur you've ever seen?
He is so cute - I wanted to sneak him into my carry on and bring him home.
He is part chihuahua and part cocker spaniel.
My kids went crazy over him when we were on vacation.
And so did I.

Going away again this weekend to take the kids to see Peter Pan at the
Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Canada.
I am just as excited as the kids - I LOVE plays.

Then we are off to Chicago next week for my cousin's wedding.
Whew. It's been one heck of a busy summer.
I promise lots of pictures when we get back.

And another giveaway for back to school.

Meet Nelly.


Do you remember my first sewing project? I am proud to say that I bravely tackled the sewing machine (finally!) and produced this sweet doll.

Her face and hair are made out of felt and her body from fabric. I got the tutorial from here - but changed it up just a bit.

I made her a cute little pillowcase dress without a pattern so it is far from perfect. I'll do better next time now that I know the proper way to do it.

Nelly's little maryjane shoes are made from felt too but again, you can see the imperfections. Sigh.

But one little girl thinks Nelly is PERFECT. And that's my sweet girl Skylar. She brought her to bed and here they are in the morning. Nelly will be loved - I am sure of that.

On vacation!

Which Happy Place does this attraction belong to?

Hooray for summer! The kids and I are on vacation visiting my family for the next two weeks!
Lots of pictures coming soon! In the meantime, let's have a little contest.
Take a look at the picture above and guess which attraction it is and what theme park it belongs to.

Hint: Don't be too scared to take a guess.

The first person who guesses right wins something new from the Fall collection of Skylar's Candy Clips!
