What a rainy day today is, hopefully these storms will blow out the humidity. Ick!

Since I was up early today with a certain little baby of mine I was able to finish up some work from last night and squeeze in a little picture uploading and blogging. So here we go...

Lots going on for SoChick in the next few months, i've been working on custom orders, preparing items for my first craft fair and mostly because it's Holiday Time!

REMINDER: Custom Holiday Orders need to be received by NOV 18th! This includes All custom bags, blankets, and large orders requiring personalization. This will ensure that your items are ready for delivery and/or shipping in time for Christmas! Individual Personalized Orders and Buy It Now items can be ordered through Dec 12th. for shipping in time for Christmas.

Moving on...

I recently had an order for custom children's blankets which got me thinking that maybe I should offer these on my site... what do you think?

These no-pill fleece blankets are trimmed with novelty cotton print and embroidered with child's name. They measure 36 x 36 inches, a perfect size for young children, but also just right for snuggling as they grow.

These two custom blankets were done in a Nautical theme with boat stripe fleece trimmed in SailBoat print cotton and OceanWaves cotton. These would make a wonderful gift, especially for the person who "has it all", as each blanket is completely unique.

Next up...

SoChick! is going to be at Scroogefest 2010 in Havelock, NC on Nov. 20th...

This will be the perfect place to do some holiday shopping for some really great gifts! SoChick will have a variety of Holiday Themed Tumblers, Hand-Towels, Totes AND Wristlets. So, plan on stopping by to check it out!!
I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween, we will be Trick-or-Treating Sunday, but watching the Georgia vs. Florida game on Saturday... GO DAWGS!


P.S.- My New HP Photosmart Printer JUST arrived via FedEx... Woot! Woot!
Have a great day!

I just finished up some new items for the site! A few simple yet chic totes and coordinating wristlets. I used up the rest of my Regent Skulls fabric by Alexander Henry for one tote and wristlet... I love, love, love it! I adore the colors and really this fabric takes you everywhere from feeling like royalty to living it up in Vegas, with crowns and suits of cards, and pretty places in between, with flowers and butterflies. Plus, the skulls are totally fitting for Halloween, right?

Don't worry, there is something for everyone... the second tote and wristlet feature a beautiful Gerbera Daisy print fabric in shades of red on a white background paired with black it makes for an eye catching combo!

Both totes have pretty pleats which give them a dress-like shape and are sized just right. So pretty, so perfect for everyday, so chic... SoChick!

They will be listed for sale tomorrow, be sure to check it out!

What a quick week this has been, probably because I was stuck in Jury Duty on Monday! I did, however, manage to deliver some custom orders, get a few new totes made for the site (which I will be putting up mid-week) and to round it off I was able to sell a few Team Pink Awareness items!

Pink items will be available through the end of October with a percentage of the sales going to Susan G. Komen for a CURE. :-)

On another note, I can't believe Halloween is around the corner and i've yet to figure out costumes for my kids, eeek! Once Halloween is over its like the official whirlwind of the Holiday Season, starting to think about Holiday Items I will be carrying on the site... I will have a Holiday Line launched early November, so get your Christmas List ready!!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

The pocket for the clutch was the biggest challenge for this bag, but came out very nicely, allowing easy access to her supplies while blending seamlessly into the back of the purse.
I am very pleased with how this bag turned out, and hope my client loves it as much as I loved making it!
