Been so busy

I know I’ve promised more pictures, but I’m going to wait until I have all the orders I am working on finished. I’m very proud with how they turned out, and hope the recipients enjoy them as well.

I’ve been mainly sitting around and between crocheting, I’ve been working on a lot of business aspects so that I can make sure I do everything the correct way.

I want to provide a place for everyone to either look at fun and different hats to enjoy, or to order for yourselves (and as always custom orders are always open.

Right now, I’m about a week behind. With a teething baby, and a sick 6 year old, it’s been rough trying to juggle my other stay-at-home work, working on hats, and taking care of the kiddos. I don’t make much, but the great thing is I can spend all day with the kids (well, the oldest goes to school most of the day). To me, that is important. I would rather spend time with my children than have them bounce around from sitter to daycare just so I can bring in lots of money. What’s the point of making a lot of money when you can’t enjoy quality family time?  That’s why I’m hoping this hat business helps a bit, so that I can help out more, and keep my time with the little ones.

I apologize for the rambling, another night, another teething experience.

Ta-ta for now.

If you are interested in any hats, please comment, or send an email to bratshats@gmail.com. I will also be putting hand made items on ebay, so keep your eyes peeled.

No go on the camera

So, it turned out the store didn’t have the camera we wanted, however, we did find on the store’s website for even less (including shipping) that comes with a 2 gig card. It doesn’t ship to the store, but I’m willing to sacrifice a trip out to the store to get it on my door step.

Don’t get me wrong, the camera I have gets the job done, but it’s just not the quality camera I need when I take pictures of my hats to put on brats-hats.com. I want it to look really good and professional. It helps having an awesome photographer help me out, but there’s going to be some I post, whether for ebay auctions or to show off something I made for a friend or family member to put in my “custom” gallery, I want them to look nice.

I’m still half asleep. Tooth number 3 is coming in for the baby. She has not been happy the past few days.

Off to go work on finishing some projects, I need to send out boxes next week!

Another hat I whipped up this morning using an applique.

My oldest is modeling it. It is a little small for her, it would definitely fit on a 4-5 year old head. I used wool, some fun trimming and a princess patch, to continue the pink girlie theme.

Right now, it’s just a coming soon page with a link back to this blog. But, soon, there will be much more. So, keep checking out http://www.brats-hats.com (of course, I will keep updates on here).

Here is a photo of another hat I finished last night. It is an angora blend (very lovely to the touch), and I decided to sew on a girlie skull patch I had bought on a whim just to see how it would turn out. I was rather pleased. Let me know what you think!

Another photo post

I just received a photo from my Secret Santa recipient, and I want to post it here. She says she loves how it looks and how warm it is (it is an alpaca blend). So I am very glad that she is happy with her gift!

I’m not sure if it is noticeable, but the tips of the kitty ears have rhinestones in them. Thank you Inti for letting me post the picture!

Finally, some pictures!

So, I finally got some pictures of two baby hats I made. One for Greg’s friend, and one for our daughter. I’m going to have more pictures tomorrow, as I am finishing up a few. My aunt just gave me a big order on top of the one my mom gave me. I’m going to have to get the site set up soon, because they want to pass out business cards for me.

Well, I’m off to go work on some more stuff. I have a cute angora hat that will definitely be posted later tonight, along with some others.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
