So by now you have heard of Hickity Pickity and I know for some of you it can be confusing because we are always talking about them on Facebook. they are the leaders in their genre. They use quilting fabrics for all of their products and we couldn’t be happier that they are smitten with both Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza. Judy Buchannan has been the visionary of Hickity Pickity and now along with her daughter they have artistically styled a very branded look. They bow to Lily Pulitzer but have a certain signature that moves beyond that and distinguishes them from the pack. They are also the ones that got the Aussies all their Jenny Eliza and we are so grateful for their generosity. Hickity Pickity you make us thirst for more of the incredible style that is you!!! Follow them, They will make you anything, you will enjoy working with them. They are in Florida and ship internationally!!! Organic Moments thanks for all the beautiful photos.
So imagine my surprise when I saw lovely images of this beautiful woman in a dress she created using our Border print from Beauty Queen (Valerie) in her dress design. I almost fell off my chair when I got to see her vision in real time. Exquisite. border prints can go a long way but you have to be inspired, you have to know what they can be used for and we think Paisley Farm did an incredible job!! You will be so stuck on her blog!! She does it all so well!!!! Sofia lives in Las Vegas , Nevada and her blog is so inspirational. She loves Floral fabric so I would say she really gets me. I am so excited for you to meet her and see her beautiful dress that I know will make you swoon. I took the same border print and used it on my antique bed as a covering and I just love the results so whatever the use just know you can’t go wrong with a border print..heavenly ideas await you! So be sure to follow Sofia Moore on her blog and Facebook page, we are hoping she does it in other colorways. This is very much like our Angie so I expect to see some of those being created. Thanks Sofia!!! Please show us how you use your border prints!!!

Would love to hear what you think of Dandelion and Boo’s collaboration with Daisy and Poppy and Roses of Blue. We have joined together to raise money for Clown Doctors who bring some humour and smiles to children in hospital. I love the idea of of collaborating for a cause. Making children laugh who are experiencing difficulty is probably the best cause there is. Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your happy moments in helping the cause. Best, Jennifer
Get ready for a photo tutorial of the Valentines Bouquet you all loved. Get some valentine scrapbook paper, maybe some sheet music, some stripes if you want and you will need 18-20 gauge wire so you can glue both ends with hearts. Cut out 40 hearts and 40 backs to those hearts. Place hearts on either end of 12″ wire stem put scrapbook paper and sheet music back to back and sandwich in the wire. Use a 2″ punch for best results! See supplies below, very easy project.
Picking up where we left off..
Okay so you have your hearts on wires now so fold the bunch in half, close hand around gently..bend back the hearts and flip the music sheet to the back or whatever you like the sheet music can be on top( they are on wire so whatever you choose will be on the top…press them outward (that’s why we use wire 20 gauge) then when they are all out hold with a rather firm grip and spread them to make a bouquet, so they progressively go out. , wrap ribbon around the wire once you have determined your bouquet is where you like it..use hot glue and wrap ribbon around the stem to the top..seal with hot glue..then in the middle of the bouquet put hot glue and add a button or some other vintage castoff or an old jewel..and voila Give it to the one you love!!!! Please let me know how you did.
Thank you all for making Thanksgiving so special, you remind me everyday to be grateful even if you are just scared to put a zipper in. I get it and my new motto is “step into it” . I don’t want to be scared because most of my fears always come out with the same outcome….”that wasn’t so bad” . You all teach me to go for it!! I’m amazed at some of the hard stuff you walk through..’yikes’ but together we can do the unthinkable. I just love you all for trying. So here’s to you!! Love through the season. I’ll be thinking of you. xo Jennifer
