Getting Through The Week...

Getting through the week rather quickly!  All because of my new dry erase board!  Seriously, I was so out of focus and scattered for a bit here, my husband suggested that I get a dry erase board to hang on the wall.  This way I can 'see' what is priority and what has to be done.  Sounds simple I know but Ta Da!!!  Lol.  This gorgeous burnt orange daisy bag is for my mom.  A late Mothers Day gift, combined with an early birthday gift.  Hope that redeems me ;)  Any way, this is the second from the bottom item on my list!  My list that is to be completed for this week.  I will be done with this bag today!  Will start and finish the last item on my list by tomorrow....erase.....erase.....  So I am planning on making a shirt for my awesome man with all that extra time I will have on Saturday =)

Excited But Unsure....

Stopped by the shop to see how my bags were doing.  The first thing you see when you walk in the door is my pink daisy cross body & my leather flower clip pouch.  They look cute enough, but kinda lost I think?  But this the nature of the store.  A little more country.  There is some really cool stuff in here if you take time the time to look.
My PInk Daisy Cross Body and Cream Flower Leather Clip Pouch

My husband found the matching bags and my studded green guitar clutch hanging on a post with some others further back in the shop here.
I moved the white one to make it visible.  The others are kind of hard to see.  The green one is completely lost just dangling at the bottom.

As we were looking around I couldn't find my cool zebra guitar clutch and cross body.  Then I looked up and saw them hanging on the wall as decorations behind the counter.  I felt honored because they look so cool.  And, I guess this way every one will see them as they are checking out with their purchases.  On the other hand, I was wondering if that really was to my advantage.  I know that I like to 'examine' bags that I'm going to buy.  I love to touch them, try them on, see how the inside looks, how heavy they are etc.  As I am new to basically consigning my things to a shop, I was wondering if it would be ok to suggest how my bags are displayed?  Any advice?  This is exciting as well as a trial and error process.  I specifically made these bags for this store to see how everything goes.  But me being me, I love my creations and want others to love (and purchase) them too.  Any advice from anyone who sells wholesale to shops or does consignment?  
Hey, if you are anywhere near the Franklin, TN area, stop in Heart and Hands on 342 Main Street and check it out.  Let me know what you think.   While you're at it, pick up on of those cool Shelly Jack Handmade Custom Bags for yourself :)  Thanks for stopping by!
