Wow, what a great Christmas Season! Not only was I super busy in my Etsy Shop but over this past weekend I had a wonderful surprise. I sold a hat to a fellow Etsian who then used the hat on her daughter in one of her Shop's listings. What an Honor!!!!

I am in awe at the wonderful individuals I met through my Etsy Shop this Holiday Season. I had the honor of making some great hats for a lot of GREAT customers!!!

We're all watching our holiday budgets this year so I thought I'd help out a little by offering FREE SHIPPING on all purchases in my Etsy Shop until December 25.

Little Boys and Foam Heads...........

I sometimes feel as though I only make hats for little girls so I've been trying to make more hats for little boys lately. This steel blue and white hat could probably be worn by a little girl or little boy but in my mind it's for a little boy.

Now on to the foam head issue. I purchased a couple foam heads to use as models for my hats rather then using a styrofoam ball to model my hats. I'm just not sure about these heads though. They certainly showcase the hat better but I'd much rather have a real model. Olivia just isn't in to wearing hats or modeling them so I suppose I'm stuck with a foam head.

Subdued Colors

I absolutely adore bright, vibrant colors but I realize not everyone loves those same colors. I've been trying my best to use more subdued colors for my creations lately. Here's one of my newest creations. This beautiful Earflap Hat is brown, light yellow and Robin's egg blue. A little boy or girl would look adorable in this cute little hat.

I'm a strong believer in fate and today proved that I'm right to believe in fate. I left the house early today all by myself to mail an order at the post office and head off to a store in Jacksonville to purchase yarn for more creations. Once I got to the store I discovered it was CLOSED. It was just open a couple weeks ago!!! I thought I was losing my mind so I called my husband, he checked online and nope, that store is no longer listed. What's funny is I checked the site online a few days ago and they listed that store on their website. Off I went to another store that I haven't been to in a few months and low and behold they had exactly what I was looking for plus it was on sale! Now, that's fate.........I had my heart set on the first store and that was a bust but the store I hadn't thought of for yarn had it. Needless to say my morning turned out just perfect!

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in a short week and a half and right behind Thanksgiving is Christmas. Where did the year go? I think this hat would make a great winter hat for a little girl or a wonderful addition to her Christmas Day wardrobe.

My Monday and My Model

Olivia and I started our day out with a brisk walk and I can't emphasize brisk enough. Neither one of us had a jacket on, the wind was blowing and it was a cold N.E. Florida morning. We shortened our walk and skipped the playground; tomorrow we'll wear jackets.

Olivia decided to "model" some socks on her arms. She loves socks for some reason. I think her love of socks may be genetic, her mother seems to love them too. She's a wonderful sock model isn't she? I figured if she's going to model socks maybe she could model a couple of my hats. Hat modeling didn't go as well as sock modeling but I'm not giving up.

Look at those baby blues!
I love this picture!

Visor Beanies

I've added a couple visor beanies to my Etsy Shop for little boys. I'll be adding a few for little girls over the next couple days. I can make these hats in any color combination you'd like.

Custom Orders

This week I had a few custom orders and I loved it! The earflap hats are a hit and they're so much fun to customize. The Burnt Orange and White hat is a Texas Longhorn hat for a little girl to wear with her cheerleading outfit. She'll really be showing some team spirit!

Cloud 9

I've been in a much better mood than ever since yesterday and the reason being is that a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer months ago and yesterday she was told there is no sign of cancer. For reasons I'd rather skip over right now I lost faith in prayer but as of yesterday that faith was restored. I'm now in the process of doing a little research in order to begin donating hats from my Etsy Shop to cancer patients both young and old.

What's wrong with all these pictures?

The first picture is of my darling granddaughter. Now, please notice that she has a rather large pair of black socks on which belong to her Poppy. She wanted her Poppy to put these socks on her and she proceeded to walk around the house with them on. The problem with the following pictures is that my darling granddaughter is not in any of them. I have tried and tried to get her to model some of my creations and she absolutely refuses but she'll wear a pair of her Poppy's socks. The girl can fling a hat a good 6 feet and she can run and hide from me like a champ when she sees me coming at her with a hat. I'm not giving up on trying to get her to model for me.

Team Fortress 2 Hat

I was asked to make this "Team Fortress 2" hat as a birthday gift. In case you're like me, I didn't have a clue what Team Fortress 2 was, it's a video game. After a little research I discovered that Team Fortress 2 looks like an interesting game but not for me.

Preemie/Newborn Hat

Here's a tiny little newborn/preemie hat that I just finished. I fell in love with this hat as soon as I finished it. I usually don't make newborn/preemie hats but once I started this hat I realized I need to make more.

Winter Hats

I've been working on winter hats for boys and girls. I thought I'd post a quick sampling of a couple.

Monday, Monday

I completed my custom order and listed it in my Etsy Shop. My custom order was for a Black Bowler Hat for a little boy that's going to be Charlie Chaplin for Halloween. He is going to be absolutely adorable!

I'm still perplexed by my little model and her refusal to help me out and model a few of my hats. I have the most beautiful model in the world (My granddaughter is my model, I'm not biased am I?) and she refuses to keep a hat on her head for more than 2 seconds. Believe me, we've tried everything and nothing works. I've even made a couple hats just for her so she could play with them and get used to wearing them but that's a no go, those hats get pulled off her head and fly across the room. I'm not going to give up on her though, I'm going to keep on trying and maybe one day she'll cooperate.
