My Life (In as Many posts as it takes) #9

Boy ya'll are awesome. You know that right? Even though we're not face to face its still great to hang with ya'll. =D So, I've got some exciting news (Well, at least I think its exciting) the girls of my family, Sarah, Rose, Grace, Rebekkah and I are starting an Etsy store!!!! =D Its going to be an assortment of jewelry, flower hair clips, fun paper styles and some other random stuff! =D The store is mainly to earn spending money for our next vacation so I'm hoping it gets off to a good start! =) Do any of ya'll have Etsy stores? If so message me the link, I'd love to check it out! =) 
So, today I'm here to share about my part of the store, Paper Styles which is essentially, small dress's made out of paper meant for decoration. You may have seen them in some of my earlyer post  but I thought I'd show you a bit more of my stuff for making them and my files of ones I've made. =D


My embellishment. Ribbon, beads, mini hangers and stick on jewels.

My paper, Sarah bought me a thick set so I could do this. =) 

The books I take inspiration from and work off of.



Now that I have Paper Fashions Of Yesterday I have all four books. If you've ever been to my house you've most likely had to endure me showing you my whole set because I LOVE making these. =D

My eleventh, and most recent, folder of desins. 

I don't have very many yet in this folder...


My preivias desins












A dress I made to sell.

What do you think?

Have you heard of Paper Fashions? What do you think of them? Would you be interested in buying these? 
I plan on posting latter this week so see ya then! =D 
Thanks for reading, or just looking! =D

  4. That is so cool! I do not have an etsy shop, but I've thought about starting one someday! Those dresses are beautiful! I love how you paired them with words and a theme. I loved themed things. I think it would be really pretty if you did different dresses for the Fruits of the Spirit, like a red dress for love, maybe purple for self control, and light blue for peace. I think that would be cool, and then have that Fruit in words above it. Anywho, just thought I'd tell you my idea. I love them, they are so pretty! =)
