Hazelmoonfly at Tucson Arts & Crafts Shows | Tucson Womens and Childrens Accessories

Just a note to let you know what's coming up for
Hazelmoonfly in November
I love this time of year.  More shows means I get to:

a) meet my customers face to face ( I SO enjoy this!)
b) have a little "me time", complete with adult conversation and Starbucks most days!
c) ask my husband, "could you please take the kids outside to play? I have work to do" so that I can furiously sew/ruffle/stitch/stencil all items for the shows (tee-hee!)
d) do all this and not melt into a puddle in the Tucson heat.  blechhhkk

What does this time of year look like for you? 
What crafts and DIY-ing will YOU be up to? 
Feel free to share your shenanigans here.

While I Make Headbands, My Little Fella Makes a Mess | Hazelmoonfly

So, I was just trying to get a few things done the other day....
Both my sweet cherubs were playing so quietly and nicely, or so I thought.
Why, oh WHY did I leave baby powder in his changing table drawer???!?!?
Good thing he is so cute.
On that note, how cute would he look in one of these? 

They come in the colors listed and are a very reasonable $5.95 each at Hazelmoonfly
****please note, a faux-hawk looks fantabulous with a tie, just sayin'****

I would LOVE to hear your ideas below!
UPDATE:  Here are a few pics of Jack in his ties.

gettin' ready to throw rocks

The Women in My Life: Part TWO

My mom will actually be opening her Mother's Day gift ON Mother's Day this year!  She will be so surprised.  I've had it since just after Christmas.  It is a little COACH purse that required me to follow a little lady around for 30-45 minutes, waiting-for-her-to-change-her-mind-and-sit-it-down-so-that-I-could-snatch-it-up Coach purse...*shameless* 

But enough about my horrible shenanigans...on to MY MOM.

How does one describe the way they feel about the person who gave them life?  My mom, who has shown me un-ending love, patience, pride, support and understanding.  "Gratitude" doesn't give the feelings I have for my mama justice.  I think "heart-bursting-love-and-joy" is closer...

My mom was raised on a farm in rural Oregon.   She and her younger sister (I love you, Aunty Debby!) got to play and explore all day long in big, open fields.  Simpler times.  My grandma Jackie taught Mom how to sew, paint, wood-work, and landscape.

Mom designed and planted both the front and back yards when I was ONE.  She has painted our house *herself* every 4-5 years since she and Dad moved in since 1977.  Mom has put in hardwood floor, tile, cabinets, fans, lights, sinks, etc.

Mom made her own clothes from an early age.  She made all my dresses when I was little.   She was a well-known seamstress of extremely detailed, perfectly executed little girls' dresses for boutiques throughout the Willamette Valley when my brother and I were little.  She had to make one of my high school musical costumes from a bed sheet, and I had THE BEST looking costume on that stage.

...She can do ANYTHING, and well. It all looks so perfect. It's not that she is OCD that things look perfect when she does them. It is that she researches the project first, practices, then takes her time to do things correctly. (A lost art....) 

So Mom, I admire you more than I can explain.  Your skill, patience, elegance, love for your family, humor...all of it.  I love spending time with you.  You are my best friend.  Thank you, Mom.

The Women in My Life: Part ONE

Mother's day is coming.  I have been thinking about how I would like to tell you all about the wonderful women in my life.  The women who have passed down the gifts of their knowledge, compassion, humor and diligence.  Without these women....well, without them, I cannot even begin to picture how my life would have turned out.  I am SO PROUD to tell you about them.  FIRST, my mother's mother, Jacqueline.

My grandma Jackie was raised by her mother, Goldie.  Single-handedly.  In the 1930's.  Not a typical story of that era, but great grandma knew when to kick her let-down of a husband to the curb.  (We gals don't take any *ahem* poo-poo.) I'm not sure, but it seems that perhaps this is where the independent, hard-working, do-it-yourself attitude may have originated...

As a result, my grandma Jackie could do ANYTHING.  Raise two fantastic daughters, teach home economics, paint a house, landscape and maintain a successful 1/4 acre yard from scratch, paint dramatic and gorgeous scenes, carve a life-like character from a scrap of would, or re-furbish ANY piece of furniture.  She was fun.  And funny. 

Grandma often had this funny little habit of garbling up what she was saying.  "Honey, could you pass me the peajutlubterwixles?"  (the peanut butter Twix...have I mentioned that she had a love of all things peanut butter?)  Best of all, she handed this down to me (peanut butter AND garbling your words).  One time we had an entire give and take in "garble talk."  We understood everything the other was saying and then ended up laughing until we cried because we were both so tongue-tied!  

There are so SO many things I have from her that make me, "ME."  Every time I attempt a DIY of daunting magnitude, she is with  me and I know I can succeed.  Every time I garble my speech, it rolls off my back and I have a chuckle.  AND, every time I eat ANTYHING peanut butter, I enjoy it just that little bit more.

I love you and miss you EVERY DAY, Grandma.  I hope you are proud of me.  I am so proud to be your granddaughter.

***Grandma Jackie is the pretty gal with the bright white hair in this old picture from around 2001***

Modge Podge LOVE...

So, I have had an appreciation for Modge Podge since I was just a little gal. My mom introduced me to it in grade school. I had a 365 page Victorian calendar with gorgeous pictures that I just couldn't throw away, so mom showed me a pretty cool trick. She bought me some cardboard boxes with lids from Michaels and we Modge Podged the dickens out of those things with the pretty papers. 25 or so years later, I still use a few.
My daughter (4 years old) is getting to the age now where we can do these sorts of things together, so I found THIS!

Tutorial Tuesday...RUFFLE APRON!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it might be nice to have a shabby chic ruffle apron pattern to get excited about.
I say "excited about", because I probably won't have time to make one; but will think about it, plan it and make it over and over in my head while I am busy with
other tasks that have to get done first....FAMILIAR?????
So, I found this very sweet tutorial from Krista Maurer to share. Enjoy!

Tutorial Tuesday! (is finally back....)

I have tons and TONS of burlap left over from our son's first birthday, which was farm-themed. (It was so fun!) I can hardly stand to throw it away, so here we go. First installment of "WHAT TO DO WITH TOO DARN MUCH BURLAP." lol
Pocket Full of Pink has a very informative blog with lots of fun ideas. I found her blog through a random google search. LUCKY DAY! First project (well, actually second with burlap, but the first was hideous and I WILL NOT SHOW YOU) is the burlap table runner tutorial.
Have a great day! (sorry for being M.I.A. for Tutorial Tuesday.)

back in the game!

EEGADS! Has it been long enough? Having a baby and a 3-year-old is HARD work, but I'm baaaaaack. As always, I still only make things in small quantities (because I get bored), and I try to offer the most competitive pricing available.
I have made a few changes to my policies, however. I currently cannot take any custom orders and now only ship on Fridays.
(keeping it simple!) I would like to thank Jessica at Chirpy D Photography for all of the beautiful pictures of my new products that are currently in the shop. She did such a wonderful job...and aren't those little girls just the CUTEST??? Just a reminder, Facebook fans and blog followers get a special code for additional saving! Currently, you may enter the coupon code SPRING10 at etsy checkout to save an additional 10%! You must be a FB fan or blog follower to receive this discount.
Thank you!

New Goodies!

One-of-a-kind headbands on sale NOW at

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Time to List NEW Goodies on Etsy!

Well, the Farmer's Market just kept getting hotter and HOTTER (102 with no A/C in Tucson was a bit much for a pregnant chick), so I am taking a week off and over the course of the next few days, listing new things on Damask & Dots and Hazelmoonfly to let people all over have a chance to snatch these mostly ONE-OF-A-KIND pretties up! We are talking o-3 month dresses starting at just $10.00, to 5T dresses at just $20. Big, blinging headbands for babies through teens and sweet, vintage-inspired headbands for teens and adults starting at only $4.00!

I am now almost 31 weeks pregnant and my sweet little baby boy is thinking about making his entrance a little early. I must rest, so everything I list will be ready-to-ship, meaning no custom sizing-just the size that is listed.
I have help, so orders will go out quickly.
Thank you so much to all of my sweet customers! ...and to all of my friends and family who are constantly offering me their help and support. You are the BESTEST!
