New Banner

Special thanks to all the Handmade Omaha Planning Committee ladies who helped with this banner project. I maaaaay have a little bit of an addiction to fusible interfacing. Seriously, that stuff is magic.
Anyway, I got in a little over my head so I asked the ladies over to help cut out all these letters. Don't they look great? 
This banner will be hanging proudly in the window at 10th and Bancroft NEXT WEEKEND! I'm so excited. More info about our show here.

Snowflakes, Fabric Button Hairpins
Even in a blizzard, these snow themed hairpins will stand out as great accessories.

Rachel O's is proud to offer the ultimate in couture fabric covered button jewelry.

Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O herself. The sweet softness of fabric buttons accents any hairstyle. I like to think of my jewelry as being tiny canvases, wear my art with pride!

Each button measures approx .5 inch wide, and is firmly attached to a quality hair pin. You will receive one pair of hairpins as seen in the first photo. The other photos are for hair and size reference as well as to show what the back of the hairpin looks like.

Due to the handmade nature of your hairpins, yours will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome.

New Tag Design

I loved the look of the embossed tags. Unfortunately it got to the point where neither I nor the embosser could emboss even one more tag.
I decided to design some custom stamps to fill in until I came up with something better. For some reason, I thought this would be SO MUCH easier than embossing.
 It isn't that much easier. While the stamps dry quickly, they definitely don't dry instantly. I like the look, and I think I'll try this for a while. Now I better get back to packing up orders!

So... Cold.....

When the temp in the house dipped under 70 degrees, the cat began to panic that she may possibly freeze to death. She has been very dramatic. All thwarted attempts to huddle together to stay alive are paired with total indignation. Here she is giving me the stink eye because the computer is on my lap instead of her.
