So I got my act together

and created a newsletter with the help of the good peeps at Mad Mimi. For the longest time I read about the importance of newsletters and keeping your audience connected. For almost a year now "create newsletter" has been on my to-do list. Had I known how easy it was, I would have crossed it off ages ago.
Mad Mimi makes it easy with customizable templates and makes it easy to share via emails or twitter. Not to mention rocking customer service if any questions should arise. If your interested in creating your own check them out, there's really no need to put it off like I did. Or if your interested in signing up for mine, please do! You'll find the handy dandy sign up button on the left hand colum.
Anyhoo, I'm pleased as punch with the outcome and am already diligently planning future issues. Which may or may not include these new Derby Girl Christmas Ornaments I've been working on for the holidays. Be on the look out for Gnomes, Sewing Machines and Camera ornaments as well or sign up for my newsletter (shameless plug I know) if you'd like to know when they'll hit the Shop. Happy Wednesday all! X.O. -M.M.

I haven't owned a cape since I was 8

And at 32 I'm having a bit of a issue with that. This cooler weather means one of my favorite things, baking? Sure. What I really mean is the understated charm that is dressing in layers. Esspecially when a unexpected pop of color is thrown in.

These four are my top contenders. If anyone knows of any other cutesy capes please feel free to share. I'm off to press a few of these guys on some tops I just finished for the Shop.

Pictures coming soon. Cheers my lovlies, X.O. -M.M.
