Introducing *The Daisy Shop*

When you click over, I don't have my banner yet. It should be up by next week. But if I wait until everything is perfectly in place it feels like it will never happen.

I've been sewing up a storm, figuring out how to make things, tweaking them, getting all googly eyed late at night. I'm now ready with a small little stock of inventory items to officially open up

The Daisy Shop.

You'll find items handmade by me...reversible tote bags, zippered pouches, pencil cases, covered notebooks (I've been carrying mine for a little bit while I've been making some up for the shop), magnets, fabric notecards...I'll be adding tissue pouches and ponytail holders in the next week or so, and I have a few ideas for other items.

I'm going to be giving away several items in celebration of the opening The Daisy Shop. Here's how to enter (read all the way to the end please):

  1. Go check out my store and tell me your favorite item for one entry in the giveaway.
  2. If you are a follower of my blog either on my sidebar or in your google reader, leave me a separate comment as an entry. This way you'll be first to know when I put new items in the shop, too.
  3. I'd love to get the word out about my shop, and I'd love for you to help me. If you do a blog post telling people about my new shop and linking to it, leave me a separate comment as an entry.
  4. If you purchase something at The Daisy Shop, you get another entry (just leave a separate comment). It's the least I can do to say, "Thanks."

Comments will be open until Saturday, July 24th, at midnight.

Please, please read the following directions carefully. I don't want anyone mad at me.

***The first person to leave three separate comments (checked out my shop/favorite item, follower, and blogged about my new shop...as outlined 1 through 3 above) and a fourth comment saying they have done all these things will get these three items. You don't even have to wait for the giveaway to be over on the 24th. Please do not leave your comment until you have completed your post and can leave the link to it in your comment.***

A reversible tote bag (you just can't see the *bling* when you reverse it) approximately 13" wide x 15" tall, without the straps:


A covered notebook, complete with button closure, coordinating interior fabric, a pocket for up to 3 pens/pencils, and a bonus pocket on the back inside flap for business cards, small receipts, etc.



A box bottom zippered pouch, approximately 4 1/2" x 6". This one is not interfaced so it's a little more relaxed. It has an interior coordinating fabric. The box bottom measures approximately 1".


***If you aren't first, don't worry! I'm giving away more items after comments close on the 24th.***

A zippered pencil/pen pouch (or really for anything!)...measures approximately 3 3/4" x 8 1/2" without the side tab:

A covered notebook:


A reversible tote:


A set of 4 fabric notecards:


I'm even going to give away a couple of zippered pouches! You'll have lots of chances to win.

I appreciate it if you can get the word out about my shop. I hope to be doing business with you soon!

Kayren! I love your things! I'm so excited for you. The magnets are so cute, and so are the notebooks. I think my favorite is the box bottom pouch. Your fabrics are the best!

All the things are so cute. Where did you source your fabric? Do you know how much it would cost to send to Sydney, Australia?

Hi, found you from Mari! I love No. 4 notebook! It's so beautiful!

The Fabric Notecard is a regular fold-over card with decorative fabric sewn on the front. I guess the way the pieces overlap make it look like the pockets.

Julie-
The best option I could find was on the USPS site. I could probably fit one of everything (except a notebook and a tote both together) in one of the $13.45 flat rate boxes or envelope. It didn't give me options online for my own packaging, so I'd have to check at the post office. If you're interested in something or a combination of things in particular, let me know by email and I'll get an accurate quote for you.

I used a combination of fabrics and then matched them together. Some came from one of my local quilt shops, some from Hobby Lobby, and some from JoAnn's.

Cute picture that you added!

I love the reversible tote #006 and the blue magnets. I can't decide which are cuter! :-) Thanks for the chance.

Betsy said...

How very fun! I'll go take a look around your shop! You're gonna think I'm crazy, but I don't know what the fabric notecards are. Do you slide index cards in the flaps? Help...I'm ignorant! haha.
I think I've been a follower forever..I'll have to go check! ha.

Betsy said...

I found my little pic! Yes, I'm a follower! I thought so! :)

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

The fabric notecards are causing a great deal of confusion! ;) I did update the description over at The Daisy Shop with one additional line. They are basically your typical foldover notecard, just with fabric sewn on the front to decorate. It's a lot like you'd decorate the front with cardstock and/or stamping, it's just coordinating fabric sewn on the front to "bling" it up. You open up the card and have the bottom half to write on, and then they come with envelopes to mail or include with a gift, or just whatever.

1. The zippered flat #008 is my fav.

"D" said...

2. I follow on GR and your sidebar :)

3. I got the word out on my weightloss blog, here: http://losingthebodysuit.blogspot.com/2010/07/daisy-shop.html which goes to Twitter and via Twitter, to Facebook!!

"D" said...

I've done all three things!

"D" said...

I'm not sure if pouch #008 comes ONLY flexible, so I thought I should specify that when I said, "The zippered flat #008" was my favourite, I was referring to it being Flexible...not flat only. Does that make sense?
