Just an end of the week catch-up on what I have going on these days…..
» It’s still snowing. And I’m still complaining about it. Still dreaming of spring, too.
» I finally got my hair cut. Nothing drastic. I just haven’t gotten it done since october, and it needed it. Badly.
» I continue to update and add new items to my collection at Crompton Collective every few weeks. So If you live in the Worcester/Boston area, you should go check it out! I’m also updating the Etsy shop as items sell/ I make new ones.
» Speaking of Etsy, I’ve become kind of treasury crazy lately. If you don’t know - a treasury is a curated collection of really cool items on Etsy. For me, it’s like creating mood boards. And I love it. You can see my treasuries here.
» Lastly, I’m super excited to announce that I am now a part of the Megan Nielsen Design Diary team! I’ll be over there a few times a week, sharing tips, tricks, techniques, and tutorials. As well as some other pretty cool things. You can see my first post, tips on selecting the best seam finish, here.
This is really exciting for me, because it helps me get back to my love of sewing and creating clothing. As you may know, I’ve been sewing since I was little, and sewing and designing is what I committed 4 years of my life to doing in college. But lately, it has gotten away from me. I kind of lost the desire, for reasons unknown to even me. Maybe it was the lack of motivation. I don’t know. But I do know that when Megan contacted me, asking if I would like to help her out, I was beyond happy. Happy to help her. Happy to have the motivation again, to get behind my sewing machine. Happy to brush up on all those skills I learned in school. Happy to be back at it again.
I had mentioned before that I had some new items to add to the shop, and I’m really excited about these! Tassel necklaces! They come in all of my spring/summer colors. But if you’re looking for a different color, just convo me and we can see what we can work out! I can also make them into keychains instead of necklaces.
Hop on over and see! Hope you enjoy :)
As promised, my next group of new items is up and ready in the shop! I have small bow hair clips, and a couple of larger hair combs. I can only do the hair combs in the two colors at the moment, but hopefully down the road I can do it in more!
In other news, I now accept direct checkout, as well as Etsy gift cards. Woohoo!
Stay tuned in a few weeks for brand new items. P.S - I’m super excited about these ones!
Keeping with my 2013 goal, I’m chugging right along and working hard on updating shopHollyDolly. Up first - bow and collar necklaces. I’ve re-photographed all of the old colors, as well as added a few new colors.
Stayed tuned in a couple of weeks. Up next will be hair bows (both large and small), and after that - new items and a bridal line! I’m pretty excited, and I hope you are too :) So please, check it out!
Happy Monday, everyone! How was your Easter weekend?
Lets start this week off with an Etsy shop update! I’ve added a few new items to shopHollyDolly over the weekend. I have a couple of detachable collars restocked, including a new black and white mini dot one. Also, check out my newest item - leather bow hair clips. I have 4 sets in stock right now, but I’m kind of obsessed with these little guys, so expect more soon.
I also have a lithe update for this here blog as well. I finally got a custom domain! You can now find me at:
hollykeenan.tumblr.com will still get you here, so no worries. But for those of you who would like to update your blogroll, etc. - do it now!
Hope you all have a fantastic day :)
