As this is primarily a personal blog, I realize that a good portion of my readership is not well-acquainted with the jolly goodness that is eBay's custom boutique community. You have no idea what you're missing out on.

Run while you can.

Seriously, though, the short version is that we sew high-end children's clothing. The long version is that we design, sew, advertise, photograph, edit graphics, code html, package&ship, support our customers, plus, you know, all that fun with financial records and taxes and whatnot.

In our spare time, we raise kids. Well, that and form design groups to talk shop and life, to expand our businesses and our friendships.

I'm lucky to have recently joined the rockin' designers at LimeVine. We're celebrating our first anniversary, so hey! Pop on over and check us out.

Here's a sampling of our current listings (click on the image to visit that auction):

hey Nic! congratulations on the new group!! yeah :) and yes LOL... to be an eBay custom boutique designer, you have to have one heck of a resume slap full of photo editing, photographing, sewing, ripping, cursing, compulsive fabric addiction, very little sleep, cooperating model (or model you can bribe easily) that does NOT get anything on the set she is modeling, unlimited knowledge of html, and get this.. probably No formal classes more than likely have NEVER been attended for any of these requirements ;)

big hugs girl, I just love your blog ~ you are so talented in every area of your life!

Loving the set (particularly loving the fabric for the swing top - retro yummies! how fun!) - commiserating on the description of the "custom crafting" ;)

Oh, you're sooo right, Nic! (as I type this it is 1 a.m. and I just finished sewing and updating my website for the night and I have to be up in less than 6 hours to get my oldest dd ready for school and prepare myself for another day of being mommy, designer, seamstress, programmer, photographer, etc., etc., etc...). But hey, I would never do it if I didn't love it! :)

Thanks for the shout out, btw! We are thrilled to have you at LimeVine. :)
