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…

Morning everyone! Busy busy today working on the final stretch of Very Jan today but I wanted to post real quick about real friends.

I’m sure you have friends, friends of different levels. The friend that makes you laugh, the one who gives the best advice or the one who is your go to party planner. My circle of friends is tight knit. We have a baker, a giver, a gossip, a comedian, and a mother hen…we are all completely different but yet each day we keep each other company and make each other laugh and care for each other.

One of the friends in my circle has really become my closest friend period. She is the giver. She is a true good soul. She constantly worries about others – people she doesn’t even know and blesses their lives with her happiness and generosity. She doesn’t ever ask for anything in return even though she deserves it. She loves freely and openly and is a truly positive person. She is the kind of person who uses what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger as her daily motto.

I love this woman. Being friends with her has really brightened my life. We are from such different places in life. Yet being friends with her comes so naturally.

Just this week she saved the day twice for me and this morning called me at 9am to ask me Daisy’s shirt size cause she was out at a yard sale LOL. A while back I bought her this necklace, a gorgeous birds nest with a single egg(she has one child), thinking back on it now I wish I had gotten her one with a pile of eggs as she treats all of us as her family and cares for all of our kids like they are her own. My children love her so much and they can’t go a day without asking if we are going to see her.

Today I am grateful. Grateful to have a friend like her in my life. Her positivity keeps me going through the most stressful of days. I hope everyone is blessed to have a friend like her in their lives. If you do have a friend like this, make sure you tell them how much you appreciate everything they bring to your life! Friends like this are far and few in between and should be cherished!

Ok peeps that’s my peace on good friends!

My shop is pretty small right now but here are a few more pics of items I have had at daily deal sites and here on my blog

Do you all have a favorite accessory? A ring you love to sport, a pair of earrings that make you feel diva-ish? A necklace that makes you think you can conquer the world?

I do! I just bought it a few weeks ago and it is my new favorite take on the world accessory.

I bought this cute little number a few weeks ago from Groopdealz(by Love Stitched) and I can’t stop wearing it. When I started up Daisy & June it was just a hobby but now its my passion. This necklace is the perfect tribute to my new passion and makes me feel really fun and happy when I wear it.

So whats your favorite accessory? Why does it light up your face when you put it on? Why do you think a small accessory can have that effect on us?

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!

daisyandjuneshoppe@gmail.com

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 have been completely swamped with orders this month from my two last deals but I just had to take a break and make something pretty for myself the other night.

So here is my new spring bag!

The fabric is from Joel dewberry – the Modern Meadow Collection

I used the Nikki Tote pattern which you can get your hands on here.

I change it a bit in size, pocket design and I dropped the buttons adding the two removable rosettes.

Do you love this bag? Would you want one for yourself? Then enter my contest this weekend and you could win the 50$ bucks to my shop good for a custom order!

 

See you peeps

 

xoxo
