If they look a little stiff, it's because it's about 30 degrees. And their crazy mom has them modeling spring and summer clothing outside! What they'll do for a newly discovered McDonald's oatmeal cookie. (They're SO good!!) Not that they'll pose complaint free, mind you... Or readily loose the pained, "I'm cold" expression and hunched shoulders. ...I needed the cookie more than they did by the time we were done. Why would crazy Mom put them through such "torture?" Why, to show off our new Posh Toppings - made-to-match Matilda Jane Clothing's House of Clouds Spring/Summer line, of course! And don't worry... no children were harmed or hypothermic during this photoshoot. The warm and cozy dining room was right on the other side of the door, and each child took refuge there every two minutes or so, lol! But do you understand why I haven't been in any hurry to complete our made to match House of Clouds accessory line? 'Round these parts, we won't be wearing that beautiful clothing for a very long time! Well, except for that little cruise coming up in April. Woohoooo!!!...
But I digress. This is our first blog entry that features our M2M MJ items, which we began creating last Fall. And if you have no idea what my acronyms are, never fear! These adorable accessories are cute enough to carry themselves off with a t-shirt and jeans! No MJ necessary. :) However, should you be a true MJC addict (or a recovering one, like myself), you will LOVE all of the options we are about to unveil to go with your gorgeous HOC goodies. And if you are not an addict yet... check this page out: MJ Addicts But I warn you! Though you may scoff at the cost initially, you will likely find a way to get you some MJ, and then... you will become ADDICTED! Bwaaaa-haa-haaaaa!
Monday is the big day. We will be releasing our pretties via Facebook album again sometime during the afternoon(early eve for you East coasters). Yeah, we still haven't gotten our rears in gear on Etsy. Someday.
By the way... I tried to edit out all the snow. If you spy some, just imagine it's... um, white sand? ENJOY!
Maybe it's the success of the special edition Valentine's Day items, or maybe it's the requests we've had for St. Patty's day themed goodies, or maybe it's just our love of green! ...Whatever the reason, we've decided to offer a few special edition Posh Toppings for St. Patrick's Day! Some will be for those that love to go all out for the big day, but most will be versatile enough to:
a) be part of your head to toe leprechaun fashion statement
b) assure that you will NOT be pinched on March 17th, and
c) be worn year round whenever you should choose to sport one of my favorite colors - GREEN!
Watch for some green goodness to be posted beginning tomorrow, on our Facebook page! You know the drill... comment under the pic with your Paypal address if you'd like the item pictured, or email us to order! We will post some new pics again on Friday, and then start invoicing and shipping early next week so you will have plenty of time to show your Luck O' The Irish spirit!
I LOVE Valentine's Day! Or "Balentimes day" as my two girls call it. It's one of those things you just don't want to correct when they say it 'cuz it's so stinkin' cute. Know what I mean? My oldest is NINE and she still hasn't been corrected - even at school, apparently. One year she pointed at the printed word, and said something like, "Mom, look they spelled Balentime's Day wrong." And I said something like, "Huh. Weird." I'm a terrible mother.
I had a birthday recently. It fell during a week that we were preparing for a Posh Toppings event. So, no "free day" for me that week! Just lots of crankin' out the Posh. So I gave myself a play day the following week. And guess what I ended up doing? Yep! Making Posh Toppings! But not just any Posh Toppings. Balentime's Day Posh Toppings! I was in the mood to play with my supplies, and that's just what I did. No duplicates, just fun, one of a kind pieces that exude love, fun, fluff, and girliness.
We're going to try something new. Beginning this coming week, we're going to put pictures of these Balentimes pieces in an album on our Facebook page. If you want the item in that picture, you just put your Paypal address in a comment under it. We'll send you an invoice and send you the Posh Topping! It's that simple. Most of the items will be either one of a kind or in very limited supply. So if you want it, I suggest you be the first to comment! If there is already a comment, go ahead and leave yours anyway, and we will consider our materials (and time) and let you know if we can make another one or not. Sound fun? I think so! This might be a new thing that we do regularly. I just like to play sometimes... and I don't always feel like copying an item again and again. That's not nearly as fun!
Oh, and if you are wondering where our Etsy page and big announcement is? ...Ahem...We're still working on it. Christmas came and kept us very busy - both business-wise and personally. But our Etsy store should be unveiled in the very near future! Promise! We want to broaden our fan base, so we will be doing some fabulous giveaways to help accomplish that. Exciting times for Posh Toppings and all of our customers. Hope you'll keep an eye on our Facebook page and join in the fun!
