My brain is melting!

January 15, 2012

Eric and I had to take a break today. Between the knots in our necks and all the paint fumes we huffed yesterday, we couldn’t make ourselves paint today. Tiny shop+ poor ventilation+ oil paint= unproductive Sunday. Seriously- I killed more than a few brain cells yesterday!!

For your viewing pleasure, the latest group of random shop pictures….

Whoa! Am I glad I quit smoking. These shelves used to be WHITE! The previous shop owner smoked.What the heck do my lungs look like?!

I really do know how to paint, I promise.

Sooooooo…… This is my basement door. It’s the ONLY ACCESS to the basement. What exactly was someone locking IN the basement. I am worried!

So many shelves!

Really. These shelves are going to rock when they are painted. WHEN THEY ARE PAINTED!

But wait! Why am I painting? I could have just kept this lovely sponge paint job!

Stay tuned for more thrilling updates from She’s So Pretty!

It Puts the Lotion in the Basket

January 11, 2012

Whoooo hooo! I’ve got the keys to my new studio and retail space! I’M SO EXCITED!!! Be sure to check back. I will be posting oodles of pictures over the next few weeks.

For now…… here is a glimpse of my super scary basement. It puts the lotion in the basket……


Wristlets for us Winos

December 20, 2011

I started making these wine bags when BYOB restaurants started popping up  near my girlfriends house in Baltimore. I mean, if you are going to get all gussied up to go out, you might as well look classy while your drinking. Nothing says style like walking into eat with a crumbled paper bag shoved under your arm.

Oh… and don’t get me started on those crappy string straps on the store bought wine bags. Nothing like sliding your bottle into a bag and having it crash all over the floor. What a mess!

Customers have also clued me into other uses. Wine, booze, olive oil, smanshy tonic and other juices all fit in these bags. Most recently, a customer told me she put roll up cutting mats, spatulas, and other kitchen utensils. Ingenious!

Completely lined, they slip right on your wrist for easy carrying! At $10, what a great way to dress up that bottle!

Monster Mania!

December 19, 2011

Seriously…. who doesn’t want one of these ridiculously cuddly monsters?! They are great for infants, toddlers, tweens, dogs…. the list goes on and on!

specs:

  • Made (by me) from polyester fleece and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. Machine wash- tumble dry low.
  • All eyes, flowers, neck ties etc are appliqued down. Nothing for a little one to chew off and swallow. Totally safe for the crib!
  • Bright colors, super soft. Completely huggable!
  • Dolls are 15″ish by 7″ish inches. Each doll and style vary slightly.

I have all these monsters in stock, with me. They are on sale right now for only $10! What a great gift for only 10 smackers! If youa re instersted in any of them, comment or shoot me a message. mindy@shessopretty.com

Brrrrr… it’s cold outside!

December 18, 2011

It’s cold outside baby! Keep all you warm and cozy heat in your house with one of my draft snakes. I live in a fantastic turn of the century house. I love so many things about it, but my doors are pretty drafty! These babies stay in place and make my giggle at the same time.  If none of these strike you fancy, I am happy to make custom snakes. Or maybe a snake that has already eaten, with a lump?

 

 

 

 

 


Pillow talk, baby!

December 18, 2011

Ahhhhh! It’s more pillows! I have stepped away from my sewing machine, I have had my last show of the season, and I now finally have time to list goodies on my Etsy shop and fill people in on what is going on!

These pillows are all available on my website and  I am happy to ship immediately! Or….. if you happen to be local, I will be in the Baltimore-HoCo ish area the beginning of this week and in NoVa at the end of the week. Shoot me a message, I will gladly try to work out a local pickup.
