What's Happening in the Studio

one good thing that I accomplished
(that has been on my "to do" list forever)
was to touch up my crown - to lighten it up
keeping the studio organized
as I photograph and list
all the items for my new webshop
I simply cannot wait for you all to check it out
and
as soon as I get the word it is open
I will let everyone know
(it's a domain thing that is holding it up)
***
I won't say it was easy
I refuse to even say it was fun
but in the end
I hope my own webshop is enjoyed by you
I don't know about you
but
I always have one area in my studio
that has to be "clean"
Well my friends, it's going to be a hot summer
but
I am all set up to keep busy in the studio
more fabric & lace books
more mini vignettes
more treasures to get ready to list

Nothing has really changed from selling on Etsy
Same free tracking
Same thank you gift
Same customer service

Let's chat soon!

Welcoming Summer Days

Here comes Summer
May has passed by so quickly
Family visits have come and gone
Thrifting and treasure hunts
were still squeazed in during May
No matter how busy I get
I can find time to find items for my new shop
found some creative time
the "new" Iron Orchid Designs stamps
are too beautiful to believe
My new webshop 
will carry many items
stamped with the pastoral design
(new shop opens in mid June)
 petite inspiration kits
many thanks to my sweet sister
for these petite clear boxes
Happy Friday Everyone!
I wanted to share what is going on
here
at
Chez A Little Bit French

If you requested a petite shop booklet,
they are being mailed out tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping in!

A Little Bit French Shop - New Beginnings

I'm no stranger to changes,
that is for sure 
but...
after selling on
Etsy
for over 8 years
I needed a change
If you follow me on Instagram
then you already know
that
I am working on my own website 
 It feels right
It feels good
I'm steering this ship!
My new online shop
will open in mid June 
ONLY because 
I purchased my domain name
on one website
but
I want my online shop on another website 
Always be careful when moving around
in unknown territory,
was my lesson 
It's all good, though.
That gives me time to photograph
all the treasures heading into 
A Little Bit French Shop

Look for my Petite Booklet in your mailbox.
Should you want to request one,
please shoot me an email.

I will announce my new shop's opening
when we are live!

Thanks for stopping by!

March Plans

Here's to hoping it all is accomplished....
spring cleaning
organizing
downsizing
purging
fresh & clean
and this room...
it's a constant mess
calling for clean ups after creating
***
what you see here is just one side 
of my studio
on days when I feel like creating...
I find myself creating kits for others
and that's okay
it's a process
going through your collections and stashes
*letting go feels good*
and
hopefully you
can grab a treasure or two!

Vintage Creations

 Isn't it wonderful
to
create with vintage?
tarnished pieces
with a new purpose
I have many inspiration kits
left in my Etsy shop
 most pieces are vintage

Let's get those creative juices flowing....


(a recently painted and sold piece)

I know, sometimes it's just hard
to get started....
Take that first step and it will happen!

Happy Creating Everyone!

Preview of New Studio Design

New Years Day found me organizing
my studio once again
New ideas
and
plans for the studio
all swimming around in my head
I've been collecting
on my treasure hunts
a lot and I mean a lot
of
home decor
mostly vintage and some not vintage
Feeling so happy that I find some many good pieces
and
most of it does get displayed in our home
and
some of it makes it's way to my Etsy shop
BUT
organizing it all
is maddening!

My studio is where I want to find calm
not messy crazy piles of decor!

I have finally organized my studio
to where I can find what I am looking for
and it is
a space to relax in
have coffee in
talk on the phone in
create in
this is just one corner
more reveal coming soon!
