Lots of New Fun Stuff!

Lately I have been spending lots of time in my autumnleah shop and I am so excited about all of the new stickers I have added. Christmas this year is especially fun for me and I have so many ideas that my brain might explode before I can create them all!

I have also entered the world of product tags. I had so many people asking me if I could make them tags that I figured it was worth a try! They are fairly simple to make but I completely understand why people would rather pay someone else to make them... it is a little monotonous. BUT, it is still not a huge part of what I do so I am enjoying it:)

Anyway, stop in and see what "new fun stuff" autumnleah has to offer...

Some New Favs

Ok I know I have been slacking and not posting enough but I have been busy moving and settling and decorating that I just forgot! But don't worry, while I have been "away" I have still found plenty of time (maybe too much) making fun purchases on Etsy. Here are a few of the sweet things I couldn't resist!

First, I bought a whole bunch of neat vinyl decals for my new home and Kristen over at Magically Made was AMAZING and extremely helpful! I am also very impressed with her lower than average prices and I will definitely be back for more:)

Next, I found this adorable little soft jingle ball for my friend who is having a baby and I just HAD to have it!

Then I bought this necklace completely on impulse because it is so darn unique! I can't wait to get some sweet pics of my little girl in it:)

For my crafty side I ordered a whole ton of these colorful "Yo-Yo" fabric flowers that I intend to add buttons to and make into clippies (So watch for them on my etsy site:)

And last I bought this totally fun little invention called the "Dine-n-Doodle Chalk Place Mat" for my little girl! This is sure to keep her entertained at restaurants from now on!

Oh and I almost forgot to include the adorable fabric I bought to go with the others for my daughters room! I love Matryoshka Dolls!

I know you are thinking I went a little nuts, but hey, I have my own shop and a little thing called "paypal" and spending that money is completely painless!! YAY!
Anyway, have fun visiting each of these shops and enjoy!!

Moving Means REDECORATING!!!!

YAY!! We are finally getting ready to move into our new house and after all of this waiting I have decided that nothing old is worthy of being in my nice, clean, new home (obviously not EVERYTHING, but enough:). So I have decided to start fresh with my decorations! First up will be my daughters room and I am dying to get started! Like I have said before, I am a little obsessed with deer, and birds, and other woodland creatures and thought this would be such a fun theme for her room (only because my husband doesn't want frolicking deer on our bedroom wall... wonder why?). Anyway, my daughter gets the fun room and here are a few samples of fabric and other items that have inspired me.

Check back to see the design themes I have planned for other rooms... all of which (like my daughters room) will be helped by some amazing etsy artists!

This is one of the fabrics I will use for her bedding and maybe curtains:

These little softie deer are too cute! She doesn't have one yet but will soon:)

More deer fabric:)

And the perfect little prancing deer wall decals!

And these adorable little pieces of art made by my sister! Visit to see some of her other adorable crafty ideas!

Have something that you think would be sweet in this design? Let me know... I am always looking!

This almost makes me want to be organized...

Thist little address File Box is sooo sweet!! I think everyone needs one sitting on theire desk so they can look like they are all important and "officey". I am always losing my address book anyway, what a great idea! Anyway, be sure and check out all the fun paper stuff at custompaperdesigns!

Ok so I am a slacker!!! My shops haven't even been that busy and I haven't posted one thing on an eternity! I promise to do better in the future (if I feel like it and the sun is shining and the wind is blowing in the right direction;).

Anyway, leg warmer season has passed us by (for the most part) and therefore I am left without anything to do! So, I decided to revamp my fist etsy shop with some funky children's prints and other digital art (by me:).

Autumnleah used to be lots of unique jewelry and a few prints and now I am sick of jewelry and LOVE working on my computer... so thats what I am doing! If you take a look at the shop you may recognize that I have a slight obsession with deer, and birds, and owls, and russian nesting dolls... pretty much anything that doesn't look american crafty. I am completely re-decorating my daughters room in this theme and thought others might enjoy it as well!

Anyway, I hope to start blogging about my etsy friends as well very soon since I have completely fallen off the horse on that one. Hope you take a look at my new items and let me know what you think of the new

Sometimes I come across something that I love so much that it makes me want to gag... anyone know what that feels like??? Anyway, this week I came across these socks and they were soooooooo cute that I pretty much lost my lunch, lol! So then, I thought to myself: "self, wouldn't it be great if you made these adorable socks into leg warmers and THEN had a matching robot onesie made to match??". Well I thought I was pretty darn smart and did just that! I contacted Jen at and showed her a pic of the socks and asked her if she could make it happen... and she did!!!!!! She is amazing isn't she???:)
So stop by and check out our super cute robot baby girl items (probably best to not do it after eating) and enjoy!

Wow! I have had Felicity's Boutique open for only a week and have already filled over 15 orders! YAY! It has been so crazy trying to build up stock, decide what to buy extras of, have at least one of every kind made at all times, AND get everyones purchases ready to ship! I am at a point where I am feeling like I can relax a little and see what happens though.

I still love making jewelry, but with soooo many jewelry sellers on etsy, I needed another outlet for my creativity:) Wangly Legs has definitely been that for me and I am excited to see where it goes! Today "", tomorrow Parents Magazine! Haha... hey you never know;)

Candyland Beads

I actually found this seller because she "hearted" my shop and I was super excited to "heart" her in return! She sells the sweetest little polymer clay beads. Her beads include characters of all the sesame street gang (including my daughters absolute favorite, elmo), mickey mouse, and lots of other sweet characters and things:) The one item in her shop that really got me excited was the cupcake beads that match perfectly with the line of clothes at Gymboree! Now I am going to have to make Belle (my daughter) a necklace to match her new outfit. Anyway, Candyland Beads is new to etsy so stop by and say hi and welcome!

Valentines Day stuff!

I am super excited about my latest addition to my jewelry collection made just for that wonderful holliday... Valentines Day! I created these sweethearts by hand and it took much longer than I expected. First I had to glue two hearts together (they werent as thick as I wanted), then I waited... then I cut out paper hearts, glued them on and waited... then I printed words, tore them out, glued them on and waited... then I had Blake (my husband) drill holes in them while I waited... then I decopodged them all and waited... and then I made the ribbon necklaces (many steps there as well) and put the hearts on the ribbon! It was a lot of fun but a lot of time too:) I am very happy with how they turned out and I hope you are too!


Okay, these are adorable! KnottyBabyWear's shop is full of cute and unique items like the crocheted baby boots below. There are also a TON of baby leg warmers that look very well made and soft for baby:) I had some of these for my daughter when she was smaller and I paid a lot more than what this shop is charging. I am definitely going to be getting some for her very soon (maybe two for this price!) So stop by and take a look at the huge selection of leg warmers and sweet little boots and say hi:)

Belle's Bows now for Sale!!

I am so excited to finally have gotten my bows posted and for sale on etsy! I have been making bows for my daughter (Belle) since she was born and I always get so many compliments on them. I have had a lot sitting around waiting to be listed and I was just too lazy until today! So stop by and take a look at all my sweet fuzzy bows for your little cutie:)

Shameless bragging

Okay so I am going to have to promote myself today! I made this necklace last night and it is definitely my favorite necklace so far! It was one of those that I had to put away immediately so I wouldnt be tempted to keep it! It took lots of time and LOTS of wire but it was worth it:)
