I feel an exciting change in the wind....

I always loved the song by Ella Fitzgerald -"A Little Yellow basket" (although not one of her most famous but was always dear to my heart) and knew that whenever I came around to starting up whatever creative "thing/store/company" that I would call it Little Yellow Basket. I has been in my head for a while now, always thinking up new idea's of what I could make, being a stay-at home Momma....
I will tell you a cute story that made me push to take a leap of faith and how this little hobby of craftiness became "Little Yellow Basket Designs"......
I was walking around downtown looking for supplies for different craft's, feather's, button's, needle felting supplies, wool and such. Feeling rather discouraged at leaving every shop that I tried and not find the perfect stuff, I started to walk towards were I parked my car to go home and sulk and give up on my thought of actually making and selling clips and such...... I cross the street on a whim, thinking about maybe one more shop and what should be playing outside on a store's speaker's.... Ella's sweet voice calling me to carry on "A tisket, a tasket... A Little Yellow Basket" Goose bumps and all my dear friends. This was a sign! So on I went with a happy heart and I swear ever thing has just been falling into my lap with ease. This was meant to be and it is so wonderful. I just LOVE making my little clips, as each one is so unique and everyone I actually just want to keep for myself. You know it's a good sign and that other's will like them when it is hard to part with them!
So I am happy to say that I have been invited to go to a Christmas craft fair in Victoria by a local super trendy shop. If you live in Victoria, come on by Dec.1-3

And today while just visiting a local craft fair, a lovely lady at a booth loved my new feather hair bands I made and commented on them and asked were I bought them, I told her my story and now this lovely local shop with beautiful stuff is wanting to have Little Yellow Basket product's!
