Just Ducky

I am by no means a 'designer', although I do make accessories and sell them, I don't see myself as a creative person.

I usually just make things I would like to wear and go from there.

But the other night I was watching some old reels of football games from the 20's and the word 'Varsity' kept popping in my head. Blue and Gold, Purple and Silver, Green and White....helmets, cheerleaders, pom poms, things that are now considered novelty but are also ultra-cute.

So here's the two designs I came up with, please totally disregard the photos of me and their incredibly embarrassing content, my camera is for the birds and it's early in the morning (ok, not all that early, but give a sister a break).

I did a custom order last week, which is mainly what I do. I'm assuming people just don't like what's in my inventory. A get some orders through my blog and people who don't want to use etsy, which confuses me, but alas. Money is money. I wish I could say that phrase in french, it would be much more convincing and cool.

Here's Rose modeling the custom order for me. The custom order was for an adult size, she just has a giant head:

That post ended up much longer than I had originally planned, so I'll save all of my useless banner for tomorrow or next week.

I hope everyone has a ducky weekend. Just ducky.

They're adorable! I might just have to order some things for Christmas soon!

Even if you decide not to be my friend! ;-)

It's great to hear someone say "ducky"!

And I'm not sure I should be the one to tell ya, but you ARE creative! I love the hats. We are in a recession at our house, but as soon as we get some disposable income, I will be ordering one of those hats. They're perfect!

OWO has a good idea bout Christmas... none of the usual rules count, so I'll be in touch in Dec about that.

Cute! I guess I'm one of those people that don't want to go through your etsy shop, huh?


Sorry I yelled. I apologize.

Okay no, I'm not sorry. I really want my hats.

Your gum should be there any day...will that get you to make my hats???

hats hats hats.

Hey, I kind of like those. Too bad they wouldn't look good on my big fat head.
