Pajama Pants and Ulterior Motives

So, PJ pants are something we've had on the to-do list for a while, but I think what finally moved it up the priority chain was realizing that EVERYONE gets to wear their Pjs to dance competitions except us when we're selling. So the only legit way for us to wear our PJs while we're vending is to sell them! AHA! Then we're not just being lazy, we're showcasing the product.

I know, I know, pure genius. Yes, we're very proud of ourselves :) Anyway, the finished product is shown above, modelled by the lovely Kirsten who was nice enough to make dance-y looking poses in the parking lot outside our Highland studio in between classes. These are WAY too big for her (I made them for me) so they aren't this baggy. Just big enough to be comfy :)

The other thing that prompted the PJ venture was this awesome flannelette -- lightweight, warm, super soft and hello, ARGYLE! This stuff comes in a bunch of matching patterns and colours -- you can see in the picture below that the back of these pants are actually a dots print which matches the argyle on the front.

And it wouldn't be an IHTD product without some applique -- I went with a trinity knot heart here in Dress Royal McKellar tartan and white cotton eyelet, but I could do it in just about any colour and pattern (initials? stars? flowers? shamrocks?) Limited only by your desire to keep them machine washable (which these are on cold and tumble dry low)!

I've got this flannelette in pink, lavender, sky blue and kelly green and the pants will be $25 plus shipping (and tax, if you're in Ontario). Stay tuned to the website, and thanks for looking! :)

Some More Ready-Made Products Available!

Well, we've been working hard coming up with new products, and have a bunch of great things to showcase over the next few days. For today I'd just like to show off some of the ready made products we've got in stock right now and ready to be shipped!

Pillows! Of course these can be personalized with your own initial in either our signature heart font (hearts can be replaced with shamrocks, flowers, stars, whatever you like!) or the block script. We've got some super soft minky fleece in stock to make the bases in a bunch of colours so just let us know what you're looking for.

Two more messenger bags -- that means we've got four in stock in total!

iPod/cell phone/camera cozies! Lots of great colours available.

For the latest in ready-made products you can always keep an eye on our Etsy shop as they usually get listed there first!

Happy shopping :)

Many Caffeinated Beverages Were Harmed In The Making Of This Feis Table

People's exhibit #1: Taken at Newmarket Feis, far too early in the day for that much Diet Pepsi to have been consumed.

But it turned out all purty! The lovely organizers gave us all the table space we desired, which was awesome because we had so many new products to premier.

Yes, the rumours are true -- the girls at IHTD are selling MAKEUP! Mineral makeup to be exact, handmade for us by a lovely seller in Wisconsin with a great track record for her fabulous concoctions. Can you say 140+ shades of eyeshadow?!? For you IDers who've been trying in vain to match your solo we've got your back :) We'll be adding the full price list and colour charts to our catalog and website shortly, but for now if you want to try it out we are offering 3 deluxe samples for $10 or $3.50 each -- a very inexpensive way to try out the latest and greatest trend in the world of makeup.

Also brand new for Newmarket were some gorgeous handmade cards made especially for us by a former Irish dancer -- everything from Thank You cards for your favourite teacher or dance parent, I'm Reel-y Proud of You cards to tell your number one dancer just how you feel and yes, Christmas cards! We still have a few left -- $3.50 each or 4 for $12, and if you want a bunch we can do even better on the price.

All of this should be appearing on the website soon but in the meantime if you want it right away just send us an email!
