NEW! Covers for Moses Baskets

Monday, January 31, 2011

We had a Jolly Jumper Moses Basket for my son, which we never used, because the padding on the original cover made me nervous. The covers that now come with the basket are un-padded (great move, JJ!) but are hard to find separate from the basket itself!

Here's a way to incorporate the colors of your nursery into your baby's first bed. With elastic around each end for a snug, secure fit, and ties to attach to the handles, your custom basket cover is sure to draw in the compliments!

Choose any cotton fabric you like, options are available in our Fabrics section, or through any fabric seller online.

Listing includes the cover and one (1) fitted sheet to fit the JJ mattress, with elastic all around for a secure and snug fit!

We will also be updating to include a small minky backed blanket to go with the set, for an additional $15.

New Shipping Rates and Times

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Today is starting off great! I spent the morning sewing, and decided that today I was going to print off some shipping labels to use USPS south of the border. I have a bit of a guilty conscience when it comes to lying to border guards, perhaps that comes from being married to someone in law enforcement, so I did a little Googling.

Turns out, there's a company local to SusieCues, who has a business of taking shipments south of the border for us, which is very exciting. I've sent an inquiry in to the owners, and if everything goes according to the FAQ's on their website, SusieCues could very soon be shipping just like our American competitors. This means a decrease in both shipping fees AND shipping times.

Very exciting!! Stay tuned for details.

Baby Girl

Monday, January 24, 2011

Just in time for spring, and using the fabric I got on Spoonflower! Will post more pictures when the room is done, there's a twin sheet and comforter cover, pillows and a valance to go, not to mention painting. But, this girl does NOT paint!

Hit the Ground Running

Friday, January 14, 2011

We're back and well into the swing of things. I can't believe how quickly a week goes by, or how quickly it feels like I was never on vacation!

I am so looking forward to 2011, and can't wait to get started on your own custom baby bedding set!

Vacation Starting January 6th!

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

SusieCues will be temporarily closed, from January 6-13th, while our family is away on holiday. I'm not sure what the internet situation will be like while we're there, but if it's feasible, I will check in a couple times over the week to answer any messages, and questions.

Our vacation will not affect shipping times, just communication over the week we're away.

We'll be back in full force on January 14th, and look forward to serving you then!

Hello, Spoonflower!!

Monday, January 3, 2011

In the search for the perfect fabric for a project of my own, I discovered

OMG. I don't think I've EVER been so excited about a company before. I've already placed my order! We're doing yellow, aqua and white crib bedding, and I could NOT find the fabric I wanted. I have the perfect aqua, a pattern I adore by Paula Prass (Aqua Garden Trellis), and it's available in an array of colours, but not yellow and white.

Enter, Spoonflower! In less than 5 minutes, I was able to alter the colours of the orange print, turning it to yellow, and I ordered the yardage I needed. $3 shipping! Yes, the fabric is PRICEY (read $18+/yard!) but it's totally worth it.

You can upload any pattern, picture, drawing, print, you name it! When we're back from holidays, I plan on setting up some listings incorporating completely unique fabrics. Imagine, bedding for your toddler, in a print SHE drew! Blankets with those special drawings, handprints, scribbles... so many options! Have a favourite picture, or print you want the theme of your nursery based on? We can have fabric printed with that EXACT print! In the right colours! It's AMAZING.

Love it! Check it OUT:

Swap Meet on January 22 - Local Fundraiser

Looking through our stash of Ready-to-Ship items, I realised we have WAY too much on hand at the moment, for our tiny studio, so we'll be participating at a local Swap Meet on January 22nd, with a kid-friendly business table!

We'll be selling our legwarmers (with new packaging!) changing pad covers, fitted crib and toddler sized sheets, as well as minky blankets! Custom orders for all of the above can be placed at the meet, and if you see something you like, and would like to buy it ahead of time, we will have pick-up packages ready to go too :)

Wasn't sure that craft fairs/swap meets, etc... were the direction we wanted to go with the business, but I'm always willing to support community fundraisers, especially when the proceeds go towards a great elementary school.

Here's the flier, complete with details!

Saturday, January 1, 2011

So, it's been a busy couple days over at Etsy for me :) I think it's a fantastic, amazing way to start off the new year!

I've had a number of people approach me about a range of design ideas, and here are just some of the ones I've been having a blast creating!
