Bible Cover w Zipper & Spine Handle

Newly completed custom order: Bible Cover w Zipper & Spine Handle in Joel Dewberry's Napsack in Lake (exterior), & Dogwood Bloom in Lake (interior).

My customer was not able to find a fabric she likes from amongst my fabric selection, & thus decided to send her own.

She chose Joel Dewberry's Napsack in Lake for the exterior fabric, & Dogwood Bloom in Lake for the interior.

Initially, I was a bit unsure of this "arrangement", & wondered if there's a mistake somewhere? As, most people would prefer the prettier floral design to be on the outside, whilst saving the "tile-like" fabric for the interior.

However, that was her decision alright... as she meant it to be a gift for her mother (or mother in law), & thought that the older woman may prefer something that's more "sedate". :D

And, very thoughtful of her was, to choose these pretty flowers for the interior, which was meant as a nice little surprise when opening up this Bible Cover.

I'm impressed! Indeed, it's the thought that count! 

And, when it was completed, once again... I found myself in love ^^

This little gesture from my customer has inspired me to treat my mom, & mother in law better. They deserve the best! :D

Triple JOY!

I came across this picture on ETSY, & finds it such a joy simply looking at the triplets. It makes me wish that I can have 3 at the same time too! lol...

Well, actually I'd be really happy with having twins, especially now that my 2 kids are 8 & 5yrs...  :)

Definitely, the pregnancy, labour, & pain will be tripled... but so will the JOY! ^^

It's really such a blessing (which we may not feel, whilst going through those "suffering" simultaneously) to go through them (3) at one shot... & see them grow up together.

Go Dotty with Tiny Dots!

I love polka dots, & simply couldn't resist a good dose of these Tiny Dots in assorted colours.

Personally, I feel they'll make a good co-ordinating fabric & will make the interior of a purse/bag & bible cover so much sweeter with these dots peeking out at you.

Feel free to contact me @ The Laughing House if you'd like your Organizer Purses or Bible Covers paired with these sweet dots :D

And for those of you itching to get your hands on these, they are available in my fabric shop, Laughing House Fabric, at Fat Quarter Bundle including all 7 of the assortment you see here :D

Peppermint & Candy Canes

I saw this lovely treasury on the ETSY front page minutes ago, & was attracted by its bright RED theme.

Now, what does looking at this treasury reminds you of?

For me, it (not very) subtly reminds me, that the Holiday Season & Christmas is coming up soon! :D

Yes! And, I'd like to take this opportunity to let all my customers know of my upcoming travel/vacation plans ^^

Pls note that I'll be away from 17-22 Nov, & 1-13 Dec.

So, if you're planning to get a custom order, pls place your orders early, as our estimated turnaround time is easily at 2-3 weeks during "normal" days/months. And, year ends are notorious for retail peak-period :D

Enjoy your busy period, as you prepare to enter into the year end festivities ^^

JUST IN: NEW Fabrics from Amy Butler & Patricia Bravo

I'm excited to receive these NEW fabrics from Amy Butler's latest LARK collection together with Patricia Bravo's MODERNOLOGY collection. This time round, I'm trying to do things a little bit differently, & ordered some of their co-ordinating fabrics as well.

Below are some "pairings" that I've done with Pat Bravo's fabrics. This will help my customers decide which of the co-ordinating fabrics to choose from for their custom orders.

The possibilities are endless really... :)

Coming up in the next post will be Amy Butler's LARK collection's "pairings". Check back again in 2 days time! ^^

Sick Day

My Bedroom/Home Slippers are featured in this lovely treasury titled "Sick Day" by Karen from HollowGlen.

Keep the flu bugs away! hehe...

I'm not sure if it's age that's creeping slowly upon me, but I realized that each time I fell ill, each episode seems more painful & torturous compared to when I was much younger. So, having lots of love around (accompanied by pretty items) will definitely be more comforting to tide us over the "down" period.

Thank you Karen for the ♥ here's wishing you & everyone good health for the upcoming holiday season ^^
