New Goodies in the Shop (finally...)

I must admit that lately I've had a hard time working.
I'm just enjoying the summer too much with my girls.
Which isn't a bad thing... we've been having lots of fun.
Playdates, day trips, ice cream, chillin' by the kiddie pool...
Trying to squeeze out every possible bit of fun of these fabulous summer days.
My Little One will be heading to kindergarten in September, so these are our last days before she enters school and has a lot less free-time.
But, I've also been promising a shop update since early June.
These boxes and piles of goodies that I've been collecting are starting to make me dizzy... heehee.
Even though we are still in the middle of summer, I know that many of us are starting to think about projects for the Fall. I've added some fabulous new things to the shop that would be perfect for these creations.

Vintage 1940's fabric scraps. Delicious colors and pretty floral prints.

Lots of vintage ephemera.

New colors of German Scrap, including this yummy chocolate border. Also, two styles of a matte orange border, perfect for Halloween! (Plus many re-stocks.)

Lots of the velvet flowers and leaves have been re-stocked, plus new colors of the flat blossoms and these shimmery velvet leaves.

You can see all of the newbies here!

I'm also happy to share that Kari has asked me to be a guest designer on her Sweet and Sinister Halloween Blog! I'm so excited and have a million ideas brewing for fun Halloween projects! You can read all about it here. The swap part is full, but you can still sign up to be a part of the blog fun... full of ideas and inspiration!

And finally, Speckled Egg will be celebrating its 4th birthday in a few weeks! I'm working on some fun giveaways, free gifts, crafty tutorials, and a new swap. I can't wait!!!!

Pretty Pretties! I can't believe how much patience people had to write so beautifully in the old days. Although I think the pace of life was slower back then and people had more patience :)

Aww, how sweet your little one is going to kindergarden! How exciting, it's best to enjoy all that free time now.
