On A ROLL!

 Well LOOK at me GO!   Two posts in a row!  I may be on a roll here, but don't get too excited...my little business is really picked up a lot over the last few months and I have VERY limited amounts of time to do much else.  

This post might get a little long...but it's mostly photos...so I think we can handle that!

I recently expanded my business to include other brand names, that I can add decals to, or sell as is!   It was a very good move for me, as it buys me a little time to get my hand made stuff stocked up and ready to sell.   The biggest issue for me is time.   I am crazy picky about the items that I sew.   I refuse to put my brand on some 1/2 ass crooked seamed thing that will look like a rag after just one wash.   So I make sure my seams are straight, and everything looks great before each thing hits the line.   

I thought that today, since I have a few minutes before I need to go ship the orders that I have completed and it is hotter than Hell outside, (and it's not a healthy thing to be out there)  I would share some of my new line with you.  

First...if you are new to Tootsie Time, you may not know that I have another little business.   

I call it 19 8ighty 9ine Design.   It's my baby.   I have been nurturing and expanding this little shop for about 6 or so years now.   

It started out as me teaching myself to sew and making just boot cuffs and some leg warmers, and then it grew into scarves too.   Then, one day,  I decided to really teach myself some skills and expanded into ladies designer clothing.   I make all my own patterns on wrapping paper and I sew each thing from scratch.   I recently decided to expand into items for the home...such as blankets, curtains, pillows and home accents, and now even more recently I have moved up again to where I am today!  

It's been a fun, frustrating, exhausting process and I am still learning, and loving every minute!   Some days I work for 3 hours, others I work for 20...and others I just do nothing, but every day I end up with a few orders for different things and that is good!   My bills are paid, and I can help my kids when they need a little extra.   I also have my products in several different stores across Alberta and Sask!   Ya...so now you see why I don't really have much time for Gardening, or blogging...

Now ...lets do  a bit of a fashion show for you...


This right here is my MOST popular hand made item.   I have made and shipped HUNDREDS of these wraps, in dozens of colors to 5 different countries around the world!     They are just so perfect for whatever you want to do.   Sporting events, camping, travelling, shopping, hospital visits...(one woman loves hers for dialysis...another loves hers for her chemo treatments.)   OR just hanging out on the deck in the cool summer mornings or evenings.  They are just so simple to wear and care for that they have become a staple in my line.   I recently released a version that has no scarf, so those who don't want a scarf can enjoy a wrap too!  These wraps come in a variety of colors as well!

 


Next up I am sharing one of the blankets I make.   I love the new trend of pom poms on household items.   They just add a bit of whimsy!   I don't like that poms poms aren't really all that washable...and who in their right mind wants to hand wash a blanket?!   No one!   So I made my pom pom blankets with REMOVABLE  pom poms!   They have been a smash hit!


This set is one of my favourites!   Not just because it's got a matching pillow...but because it has beautiful texture, simple colors and it functions indoors and outdoors!   You can also ....complete the look by adding a table runner and place mats to match!

 
Speaking of table runners....
 

 

 

 

easy care...casual style...perfect!



I use these all over my house...


Then there are the towels...They match the runners...and the place mats...and they are perfect in any room!   I have some in the bathroom to dry wet fingers, in the kitchen to dry the dishes, and I even used a set in my kitchen window as curtains!

 

I adore the casual style of these place mats!   I also have some matching cloth napkins, and some coasters to match this style.   






I mentioned that I make some blankets....




I struggle to keep the blankets in stock too.   They are all quite popular.   

I have had so many changes happen in my little business over the last year or two...It is exciting to have expanded so much.   The following are some of my newest additions to my company.

If you know me...you know I can be a tad sarcastic at times...and to my surprise...Sarcasm SELLS! lol


STOP!   TIME FOR A DISCLAIMER BEFORE ANYONE GETS MAD AND THOWS A FIT!
t
This Yellowstone reference tshirt was a request by a store that carries my stuff...it has been popular with Trudeau, Biden, Kenney...and a few other politicians names on it.   The photo does not necessarily reflect my view or affiliations...it's just to show you what I do.   
(yup...I got a bit of flack for that shirt...and the #allracksmatter one too ) ugh




I have been having an absolute blast with making the decals to put on the tshirts and hoodies.   I have done several custom decals now including a curling team logo and  put on hoodies.   It has been extra crazy!   

THIS...has been HUGE!   It's a hoodie with a lined drink holder!   They are not easy to find in these parts, and I had gotten in an order of 50 of them in various sizes.   I made my product shot and shared it and within 3 hours it was sold out!   
I searched far and wide for another supplier, as my original one was not restocking for a while, and I finally found one...so these are set to arrive in a few weeks...and I am waiting impatiently for them to come.   If YOU want one, head to the website and order it up now.   They absolutely won't last long once they arrive. 
They will be here in time for me to get them ready for the fall/winter/christmas rush.   Until then, I will be working on tshirts and hoodies and wraps and blankets and whatever else pops into my head, and gets ordered up by my fabulous customers!


So...as you can see...there is a REASON I have been kinda MIA for the last while.   I have been one busy girl between my business, my children, my grand child, my cowboy (who is SO incredible and supportive... plus kinda cute too lol) and my house...I don't get much for free time anymore!   
I am secretly glad I don't have a greenhouse right now, and I have put a hold on the plan to build a new one this year.   I just can't add anything new to my plate until I either figure out a system to stay WAY ahead of things, or I hire some help.   
One day...I will be digging in the dirt in a greenhouse again...just not right now.

Well...That's it for me for a few days...I hope you all will pop over to my business website and see what else I have available!   To get there click on any photo, or click here


 Until Next Time...Happy Shopping!
