Morning peeps,

When I started Daisy & June a while ago I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I just knew I wanted to make stuff. I wanted to be crafty and share my crafts with others. I would send my packages out just wrapped in tissue in a boring yellow envelope. Packaging never really came to mind until one day I ordered fabric from an Etsy shop. It was just a few yards of fabric but the way it was packaged was so impressive and it really changed my entire outlook on the whole concept of packaging.

I tried for the longest time thinking of what would be my perfect packaging. Maybe I over thought it who knows but I have finally picked out and ordered everything needed to make the perfect impression on my customers.

So from now on when an item is ordered from my shop they will be come in a pretty brown envelope(recycled) and wrapped in white tissue. Each item is wrapped with these gorgeous twine strings…

And each package has this adorable thank you note attached to it….

Cute right? I found some other cute things for packaging,  I thought I would share some of my favorites…

I am not a fan of Spring forward or Fall back for that matter. Losing an hour , gaining one, it’s all the same to me. My kids have these super human internal clocks and wake up the same time no matter what.  Fall of Spring the time change never seems to bother them. They are up a sunny 6am – 6am. Not 6am the new time either. I can’t remember the last time I was like wahoooo I am getting an extra hour of sleep tomorrow…nope not in my house. My lovely munchkins compensate the hour but waking up extra extra early.


Any who that’s my gripe for the day LOL. This morning while injecting my first cup of coffee I spied this “pinteresting” little app on Facebook.

Pinpuff Its basically a popularity test for Pinterest. Its pretty interesting to see how you rate as far as repins and followers.

So how did I stack up?

My overall score:

Perfect! Your Pinfluence Score is 48.23.

They then break it down a bit further for you…

Value of Pins & Referral Traffic

Pin Worth(Ecom) Pin Worth(Gen) Cost per click
$1.03 $0.52 $0.15

Reach Score

You have above average following on Pinterest and can easily be improved further.

Activity Score

Great!! You are very active on Pinterest – perfect choice for Brands on Pinterest.

Virality Score

Virality score is very low. How about trying better Board names or Pin titles?

Hmmm guess I need to work on the board names and I do have this horrible habit of not putting anything in my comment box which does cut down on my pins showing up in searches.


So whats your Pinpuff score?

Hey everyone!

I have been getting emails lately from my customers asking about Daisy & June, how many people work with me, who are Daisy and & June, how long does it take to make an item. I love getting these emails because I love connecting with all of you! So keep writing me! I am going to try to do little posts every few weeks answering questions and posting pics on Daisy & June – Behind the Seams! So send me your questions or comments, I would love to feature you!


As for who are Daisy & June….you can find all my company info under the Daisy & June tab of my blog. My name is actually Kathy but ModernJune has really become a huge piece of me. My husband even calls me ModernJune sometimes LOL.

My company is well just me and my small inner circle. My husband handles all shipping and my best girlfriend Tena has recently been hired to help me with the prep work. My kids even get in on the fun sometimes by helping me wrap items or pin fabric. I have been debating getting my daughter a small sewing machine and teaching her at a young age. She is really into all of this and she loves seeing her name in print – as she is named after my great grandmother – Daisy.

It takes me about 30 mins start to finish to make one camera strap BUT I usually work in assembly line style so it goes a bit quicker that way.

Here are a few shots from my weekend of busy work!

Don’t forget today is your last day to enter to win 50$ to my shop – Daisy & June! Head here and play along!

Stop by and take a look at my Spring Bag I made this week too, it has been all over Pinterest which is really amazing!

Back to sewing!

I really wanted to do something fun this year! Of course Pinterest gave me the idea and then I expanded on it a bit…

each photo will have a mustache or lips attached to them. I did mustaches for boys and lips for girls.




and then their valentines together for teachers and family

I loved how they came out and I can’t wait to post the finished product with the props attached!

See you later peeps!

I have been wanting to make a new wreath for a while so of course I went to my go to craft site…Pinterest!

I found this cute tut for a burlap wreath

I love it but it was a little too clean for what I was going for. I took my burlap and let it fray to its liking, then wrapped it in folds around my hanger.I put a few dots of hot glue through to make sure it doesn’t slide down the hanger over time.

Then using a simple rolled flower technique I made a few out of the fabric I have been using for Valentines day.

And viola! Done…

I am very happy with how it came out!

I hope you are having a great day before Thanksgiving! We had a great day today!

Today were the Thanksgiving feasts at my kids school. It’s a strange thing – to have your house smell like stuffing at 6am but that’s how my day started! I had a lot of work to do for my sons feast as classroom parent so I was so glad my husband was able to join us today and spend a good portion of the morning hanging with Daisy in her class. I was also really thankful that classrooms weren’t that far from each other with all the tag teaming we did back and forth between the two wings.

I mentioned on my Facebook that I was making pie pops and now i have a photo to share 🙂

Lindsey(my besty) I’m sure will have something to say about me snapping a photo pre-clean up but hey this is real life here – I’m not trying to viral on Pinterest just show off a little project LOL…

These ended up being a huge hit and they are slap your face easy so I was sharing the recipe left and right with the other moms.

-Pre made Pie crusts

-Canned Pie Filling

-Lollipop sticks

-Cookie cutters

Unroll your pie crust, cut with cutter of choice, place lollipop stick in bottom layer, spoon a little filling in, cover with another cut shape, fork edges, bake(according to pie crust directions) DONE LOL!

Can you believe how easy???

The kids loved them – I made two turkeys, one for each class. My kids were bragging about me all day – what mom wouldn’t love that?

Here are my boys, stuffing their faces and being silly.

Daisy was so excited to have Daddy sit with her for the feast and her friends were ooing and ahhing over how tall he is…they even dared him to touch the ceiling – which of course he could and did.  Anything to make kids laugh.

A few last things before I leave you today…Don’t forget about my contest this week. You could win the Add On to my latest kit for free – winner to be announced Friday(Check Mondays post to enter).

My RAKs for yesterday and today – I did two today –

– At the Walmart there was this woman who couldn’t get the carts to come undone – I mean really must they always be stuck together??? so we pulled out kids out of ours, grabbed our stuff and offered up our cart to her instead of walking it to the car.

– At the food Lion tonight(can you tell I have been forgetting some last min things for tomorrow?) the woman behind me who had a neck brace on could not lift her basket onto the belt so i offered to do it for her, loaded her stuff on there and offered to carry her groceries to her car 🙂 She was so appreciative and I got a huge smile out of her.  Made my day!

Well have a great day and a fabulous Thanksgiving!

xoxo ModernJune
