2 handbags, 1 little deadline

4 days before Mother's Day I decided these would be great gifts for two of my dear friends who just spoiled the heck out of me for my birthday.  I don't know how, but somehow I got them done, and even quite happy with the finished products!  Happy Mother's Day Deb and Lynn!

I used a brooch pin to attach the flowers to the fronts of the bags.  I was really not happy with how the red, white and blue flower turned out so I switched it out with a blue rosette to match the linning.

half design studio, half boutique space - l@@king for customers and vendors

I have rented out a little space to use as a design studio for MPP, however the rent is going to be lacking without a little help... so I give you....


I will be hosting 2 vendors each Saturday to sell their goods, win win situation!  Thanks to my sweet friends Loree and Stacey of Stacey Lyn Designs, we finished painting and setting up tonight, and I'm thrilled with the turn out.  If you think you might be interested in being a vendor please email me at marypoppinspresents {at} gmail dot com, let me know what you sell and what Saturday you would be interested in.

April's out of the box bouquet of bracelets

I'm contributing again this month to Out Of the Box Sampler, and literally worked on these little beauties all month long!  At home and work- making fabric flowers, in bed making fabric flowers, in line at the bank - yes flowers, catching a table of one business breakfast/brunch - iPod and making flowers.

so now I have a bouquet of flowers .... what to do with them? (besides, headbands, necklaces and corsage pinbacks? Oh ya and a hat.... )

but I digress, for next months OOTBS I am giving away samples of a few of my necklaces, some headbands, but mostly I have made 21 bracelets that each have a handmade flower attached.

a bracelet alone is fun....thus the "sample" part of the sampler

however bracelets in bulk is an awesome wrist corsage!  I wore some to church on Sunday, and got lots of compliments... now to make some for my Etsy and Funky Finds stores!
 Let me know if you want to order any!
ps. can you tell at which part in the story my real camera died and I had to resort to the cell phone camera... sorry corsage pics are lame!)
