“Pinspirations”

If any of you are like me, then you have been sucked into the world of Pinterest over the past year or so, pinning more than you will ever have the time to actually attempt. I’m not on there much anymore, but occasionally I will get on to be inspired.
One day earlier this winter, I saw a pin by a person who had seen a hat in Anthropology (a store that I love the style of, but can’t bring myself to justify the price tags). I too loved the hat and liked her take on it, but thought, “I think I’ll try my own version of this.” And I did…and LOVED it. I have made this hat for myself and a couple of friends and have even sold a couple.
Anyway, thought I would share 🙂

Preparing for the Holidays

I love Christmas. It doesn’t hurt that my birthday is on Christmas either 😉 Truthfully though, there is something to be said for the whole process of picking out a present for someone that you love. Unfortunately, the whole idea of list making kind of takes the joy out of that…at least for me. I don’t enjoy when someone hands me a list and says, this is exactly what I want. I like freedom!!! I guess that’s why creating these hats is so much fun for me. I love when an order comes in with a general, “she/he likes these colors.” and I have the freedom to mix and match and create. Here are a few of the Christmas orders that I have done over the last few weeks.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!

I was just updating my Zahoomi Shop page with some of my winter inventory and thought, why not do a Christmas in July Sale?!? I am making a shift this year. Normally I do 3-4 craft shows during the winter months and I stock up on inventory for those and inevitably people see a hat that they love but need it in a different size, so I end up doing custom orders and still having a bunch of my inventory left after the fair! Here’s my chance to clear out the inventory bin and your chance to save! I have marked down all my winter items and while I currently only ship in the US, foryouI will open that up to worldwide. Just tell me (via the contact seller button) which item(s) you are interested in and I will run over to the post office and figure out shipping for your zone 🙂

Thanks for looking!
