Friday Find: Vintage Christmas

I know I usually do a Friday Find that is one crafter, site, or organization, but I wanted to spice things up a bit.

I love vintage Christmas stuff! I mean love. I have some vintage push pin ornaments, and they are a close second to all the ones that my kids have made that go on our tree. I am sure that throughout the years I will be adding more to my collection.

My First Custom Order

I can't even describe how excited I am. I just finished my first custom order, that isn't a family member or friend! Yay!

Remember this hat? Well, I guess someone loved how it looked and asked me to make one. Mind you, the hat itself that I had I actually bought at a store, but making a pattern for it was way fun!! I love it so much, and had so much fun making it, that I do believe I will be making more and selling them in my shop! I have even considered selling the pattern, but that means I have to make it make sense to other people :)

Thanks soooo much Nancy for being my very first internet custom order-er, I think I will just have to name the hat after you, or your daughter if you would prefer :)
