Why, yes, it is April! And no, I haven’t posted on the blog yet this year.
Why not, you ask?
Well, as per usual, I’ve been a little busy. A little busy with the kids, painting, homeschooling, painting, growing sweet whimsy designs, painting, traveling for sweet whimsy designs, painting…do you see a theme here?
I wanted to share the latest with you all so you can see for yourselves.
In March, I attended The Maker’s Summit in Greenville, SC. Not only was it an entirely magical experience, I learned a lot, too! I even shared some time with one of my oldest & dearest friends who we lodged with in a nearby town. I was fortunate to meet some of my newly-instated shop owner BFFs like Jen from Swanky Shank, Jennifer from Little Faces Apparel, Markie from MarleeRo, Elizabeth from The Magpie Co., Jessica from Opposite Of Far, Nikki from Southern Adoornments, Cristin from Cristin Rae, and Stacey from Bannor Toys and hang out with my in-person friends like Bethany from Busy B Boutique and Hayna from On Hand Lotions.
Why did I just list everyone & tag there shops, you ask?
I would like you to peruse their shops & see what wonderful handmade items they offer. There’s something for everyone!
The Maker’s Summit is really the perfect place for makers to meet, to listen and share, to bond and grow. There were some truly genius speakers and panels of creatives and as you can imagine the energy was pungent being all in one space. We thoroughly enjoyed and will be attending again next year for sure!
At the Summit, I also met & fell in love with Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte. Rachel is the guru of handmade awesomeness. She has raised the bar for makers across the universe. I am still elated that Rachel featured a post I created for Handmade Charlotte sharing our Peggheads family pegg dolls in a fun DIY post!

Thanks to Rachel & her team of super fun creative people, the post was in turn featured on PopSugar soon after it went live. We couldn’t be more thrilled!
Tune in tomorrow for another spectacular announcement as we celebrate the launch of our Monochrome Collection in the shop!
