Some More Things I've Been Working On

The barrettes I ordered from Etsy turned out to be too small, but I didn't let that deter me.  I went straight to the horse's mouth and called Offray, the company that manufacturers the toothless alligator clips I've been using, to find out if I could buy them direct.  There was a a bit of a rigmarole, what with faxing and emailing and the red tape that comes with proving that I run a small business.  But in the end they said that I could place an order!  I was ridiculously, over-the-moon, Christmas-morning excited.  So, in the coming weeks I'll be gluing and photographing all the barrettes I've been making in the meantime.  Stay tuned for the resulting barrette blowout!

Tracy, I can't wait!!

And I can relate to the whole supply hassle too. Vintage bark cloth is getting more scare and more expensive. I found a supplier who makes great reproduction fabric, but to get the designer discount I practically need an FBI background check. I just want to make bags...
