New Stuff!

If you were at the spring boutique you probably saw a lot of this stuff there so just keep scrolling down to see a few new things.
Curly Ostrich Puffs in new colors
Black and White Mixed
Light Pink
Bubblegum Pink
I've redesigned the chiffon flowers just a tad and added lots of new colors including some nice neutral colors.
Tan Chiffon Flower
 I found a much easier way to cut & heat seal the ends of the korkers so I decided to give them a shot again.
Assorted Korkers
 Going through my craft closet I found a ton of stuff that I didn't know what to do with so I decided to make a few of these woven headbands to clip the bows into.
Moss Green and White Woven Headband with Bow
 Set of 2 Small Bows. They are about two inches across and would be adorable in little pigtails or just use one to sweep aside some little bangs. These are available in LOTS of colors so if you're looking for something in particular let me know because I probably have it! 
Small Set of 2 Bows in Yellow
I had these flowers at the boutique too and I just LOVE them. They're about three inches across. It's also available in a few more colors but they sold out before I took the pictures. (I know there was lavender, purple, and black but there's one more I can't think of off the top of my head). 
These little round flowers are made of the same fabric as the flowers above but are a little smaller.  They're about two and a half inches and come in 32 colors so there's more than likely one that would go with just about everything.

This next flower is the newest addition here at The Spunky Little Monkey.  It took a little experimenting with different fabrics before I tried this one and fell in love.  It's a lot bigger than the rest of my flowers measuring over four inches in diameter.
Large Peony Flower Clip/Pin in Burgundy
This flower is available in the following colors too I just haven't made them yet so if you are interested let me know.
white, ivory, light pink, fuchsia, red

Now What?

I had an excellent time at the Penelope Lane Spring Boutique this weekend and according to my inventory I think things went pretty well...although we'll have to see how good my record keeping skills are once I get my tags back.  I was working on barely any sleep this week so I'm not sure how accurate I was.  I enjoy going to these boutiques so much because it's such a change from sitting in an office by myself. 

My dad built these great displays for me that turned out better than expected.  He always goes above and beyond whenever I ask him to make me something.  I had seen something similar online when searching for a new way to display my clips.  I knew I wanted something that could keep everything somewhat organized. It worked out pretty well except for the fact that I would have needed about four or five of these to display all of the different color flowers.  One of the styles comes in 32 different colors and I only had five hooks to put them on so there were a lot of hidden colors that people probably didn't even see.

My problem now is that I have NO IDEA what to do.  I've been so crazy busy the past month getting ready for the boutique and last night I put everything back in order and boxed up for storage.  Today I'm sitting here while my husband and son are both taking a nap and I'm going stir crazy! I almost feel like something is missing with nothing in my hands.  So here I am finally updating my blog.  I think my next project will be sewing together this box full of korker ribbon in front of me.  When the rain stops I need to take pictures of everything from the boutique to post on my Etsy shop so stay tuned!

Spring Boutique

The Spring Boutique is right around the corner. I've been busy making lots of new clips. So far this week I've cut about 900 pieces of fabric and made about 75 flowers but I still have LOTS to go! I thought I should do a quick post so you people don't think I've gone missing.  Back to work...
