A foot in the door...

My hard work last week has paid off! I *did* successfully manage to send an email to the folks at Hobbyra Hobbyre and we have begun a dialog re: carrying some of their pattern books and materials. I was also pleasantly surprised yesterday by a package from another Japanese fabric company - they sent huge swatches of some ADORABLE fabrics (cotton/linen). Check these out! (the elephants, sheep and ladybugs are my favorites:)

















And in case you didn't notice, there are 2 more places now that you can buy/see Monkey Foot Goodies! I met Tish from OFF THE HANGER on Monday (it's a local shop that sells some cool accessories and great used clothes!) and dropped off 19 belts to consign. I'm also working with Erin from the DIAPER DAISY to start carrying some cloth diaper accessories in her store. This is all so fun!!

In the process of making all of those belts I decided to try and come up with a better belt layout for my pictures. I'm working with Lisa of Bella Fiore Couture to revamp my website so I'd like some snazzier pictures to put up when the new site launches. Which style do you prefer (I love feedback!)?

STYLE A:



Style B:



I'm off to shovel some snow (we are getting TWO FEET of snow today..... YIKES!), and package up a bag for a lovely EBAY customer, Samantha. I love making these bags - they take a long time, but are worth it!

Congrats on all of your great deals going on! We too were hammered by snow, sleet, rain and then snow. No fun to shovel, but a great workout! Fun sledding as well. And of course I love, love, love those fabrics!!!!
