Wishing you a Happy New Year!

This is it. 2009 is about to go away and very soon we'll be entering a brand new year.

I am very, very excited to welcome 2010 for several reasons. One, because our first baby is due next week. Two, I get to stay home with my baby for 3 months. Three, I am going to sew a lot more when I am home.

I have many goals for 2010 that I would like to achieve and one of them is to be able to craft more handmade lovelies for my shops.

As of right now, I am working on several clutches and bags for my Downtown Girl Designs shop. And as for my baby shop, Max and Olivia, I am working on finishing up several super cool travel changing pads. I haven't found many vintage items for Downtown Girl Vintage shop yet so I haven't been able to list any in a while.

Happy New Year!!!!


Happy Holidays from Our Family to Yours

Just want to wish you a Happy Holiday.
May the season bring you joy and happiness.

so many things to do so little time...

I am 37 weeks pregnant by now. I am excited to welcome our first baby. Up to now, I am still sewing things for my shop. I do get tired faster though so I work in a slower pace now than I used to.

My husband is trying to get my craft room done before Christmas. So far it looks really good already. I am hoping I can start moving all my stuff in there by tomorrow or Christmas morning. Will post pics of the new craft room for sure.
I am very excited about decorating it. I do have most furnitures to go in it ready already--using what I already have mostly. I am sewing the curtains for the windows myself. I am also planning on making my own small floor mat to go under my big sewing table.

Also, since I will be delivering the baby soon, I am planning on taking my maternity leave from my shops to start January 7 or 8 until the baby is born (due date is January 10).

In the meantime, feel free to browse around my Etsy shops. As of right now, I can squeeze in 2 - 3 custom orders in case you'd like to have some custom made baby items or any other handmade goodies.



Updates...giveaways... and more....

Wow. I haven't been blogging in such a long time. I have been busy with my 2 Etsy shops---www.downtowngirldesigns.etsy.com and www.maxandolivia.etsy.com (the baby shop).

Things are going great for my shops. The holidays are a busy time for sure. I am busy juggling my time between my 2 etsy shops and my full-time job. And now that I am 36 weeks pregnant...things do get a bit hectic sometimes. But I always enjoy crafting and sewing, so no complains there!

I've got so many ideas for my shop and soon as I am done with custom orders, I will start crafting them to sell at my shops.

Also, I want to let you know that I'm going to start bi-weekly giveaways at my blog to start January 2009 to celebrate the birth of my soon-to-be-born baby.

Ok. Back to work now....
