We’re staying warm with our new line of infinity cowls and very excited to update our shop with new colors and yarns. Mmm. Our favorite time of year. Make yourself a cup of tea. All orders until midnight are 15% off.

Love is in the air! So is our North Carolinian Lady Like model, Cali, whose boyfriend is receiving the sweetest, most perfect smooch. You might have seen that we’ve updated our Valentine’s line with newbies! We sell heart headbands year round, but we’re in love with the way Cali wears hers for this photoshoot. Wrecklessgirl is scheduled to post the rest of this session on her blog very soon!
Wowsa, this December has been booming. We are keeping up with the holiday rush and we’re really, really grateful for all the support we’ve been getting from local friends, and friends far away (like you)! First of all, as we posted recently, Gussy Sews has hooked us up with a Giveaway hosted on her blog — last chance to enter here: http://www.gussysews.com/2011/12/sponsor-feature-giveaway-lady-like/!
Nextly, our dear friend (and sponsor — look to the left in our sidebar), amazing photographer Shannon Sewell is hosting a giveaway of our maroon bow tie headband — on her blog!
So, yet another chance to win a Lady Like Headband. We’re so excited! Wreckless designed the blogsite for Dreamer Journal as well! Having so many creative friends is such a blessing that I never want to take for granted!
Good morning! We had such a beautiful Fall day yesterday, it would’ve been the perfect day to take pictures or go on a photo walk! We just launched a section in our Etsy store called “Seasonal” where we’re placing all kinds of cozy pretties like scarves, wraps, and cowls. More to come!
Yea, just got our Bloglovin account and so excited to start following those bloggers out there!
Well I must admit I’ve been lax in posting lately. My garden is in full swing including 13 tomato plants that are going to require lots of picking and canning in September…maybe even August. Since our weather in So. Oregon was horrible in May and June, it took the ground temperature a while to warm the new roots. But enough about my garden.
Time to focus on Wreckless Girl, my daughter and partner who is returning from Oslo, Norway. Yep, she was only 2 miles from the city center blast last month. Scared would not be a word I would use for my immediate reaction to the story on the news about the unfolding tragedy. Frantic from her first tweet that morning better describes it. But she was sweet enough to let me know she was safe. Here is her story if you’d like to view it from Medford, Oregon, Channel 10 News website that interviewed her via Skype. http://www.ktvl.com/articles/norway-1200940-ore-photographer.html
Besides my partner in Lady Like Accessories, she is also photographer of all the beautiful pictures at our Etsy Shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ladyknitster and http://www.lady-like.net . Kristy has been residing in Oslo for almost 6 months and upon her return, our shop will be filled with new items I’ve been saving to be photographed by her. I must admit that six months is a long long time to have your daughter overseas yet it seems like yesterday that she hopped yet another plane on another “vagabond” adventure. Oh yeah, you might want to visit http://www.vagabondbond.com and take a whirlwind tour of 11 of the most talented artists from around the world. This website is the dream, creation and culmination of many hours of Kristy’s hard work to share incredible journeys to places only one can dream about visiting.
Let’s start with Norway from wrecklessgirl herself. http://www.vagabondbond.com/2011/they-all-seem-like-roads/
Don’t forget to visit all the artists adventures.
Hurry home darlin’………
Today is “Create Day” at my house. Actually everyone’s day starts out creating…like breakfast. We always say “Let’s ‘make’ breakfast but really we are creating breakfast from the items we have in our cupboard or refrigerator. Next might come the tedious business of housework. How is this creative you might ask? By keeping a clean, organized and smooth running home, we are ‘creating’ an atmosphere of warmth for our loved ones and visiting friends. How many times have you heard someone say “I love going to her house. It’s so warm and inviting and feels like home”? You want to get invited back, maybe for tea, crumpets (I love that word!) Well, it doesn’t happen by chance. Creating takes time and work whether it’s caring for your home, at your job, or the incredible on line craft businesses. So the next time you think you’ve wasted the day, don’t despair; you truly did create something wonderful. Just look around you.
Yesterday I purchased 3 journal books for organizing Lady Like ideas. I have many journals of old patterns that I’ve worked up and finished over the years but my problem is MEMORY! Throughout the day I have ideas that flit through my brain and I think…Yes, what a great idea. I’ll have to try that later today or tomorrow. I can visualize myself getting all the materials together, emailing @wrecklessgirl and telling her my new ideas and then I get distracted. I was heading to get a notebook to write all my thoughts down and I went to put in a load of laundry instead. POOF! The new ingenious idea that’s going to make millions is now in the washing machine and going down the drain.
No more ladies! My new purple colored journal with green leaves (I love purple, actually eggplant) is my new “Create Bible”. I will be carrying C.B. around with me so when the seed of an idea sprouts up, I can plant it in my C.B. journal immediately. No more brain leaks for this girl. So April 14th, you’ve been given notice that it’s the “Day of Reckoning” for journaling. Don’t forget to check up on me. I might forget I wrote this blog!
So excited to get an email from Brittni @papernstitch.com this morning telling Ladylike that we were featured on their blog today. Thank you so much Brittni. We are so thrilled for the opportunity. Check out the link:

Had a wonderful day at a friend’s home yesterday working on my projects while 3 ladies painted! I was in awe of their artistic talent. Seriously, I didn’t want to work on my items. I wanted to just sit back and enjoy creativity at it’s best. Actually I did peek a lot! I’ll see if they’ll let me post a pic of what they were working on. Thanks Julie for the fun and inspiring afternoon. Hugs to Michelle and Heidi too.
Well, this past weekend was a lot of intense computer work for me. Finished putting LadyLike exhibits on Papernstitch and ArtFire. Seriously, it was a lot more work than I thought it was going to be. This newbie blogger and exhibitor was pretty tired when it was done. So many details and pictures. But each listing was a new adventure and a great learning experience. I definitely have a new appreciation for blog creators and web designers and their hours upon hours of brain power being transferred to the screen. Not to mention back pain, neck strain, red eye! Just a few hazards of the job.
Ladylike at www.papernstitch.com chose our mustard Lily headband as one of their pics of the day. So pleased and honored. They are a wonderful venue to exhibit your precious works of art. Drop by for a quick visit.
Here’s our Mustard Lily Like headband on exhibit:
We are working on new and exciting items and should be posting them soon. Have a wonderful Monday.
Must not forget Kelley and Sam in K.C. having their first baby today….waiting for Sullivan (aka Sully) to enter the world today. Hugs to the three of you!
Well it appears that to be successful in the online market, you have to be out there in many store fronts. Ladylike will be expanding into a few more markets in the future. We have recently applied to ArtFire for an exhibit page and @wrecklessgirl is working on that from Oslo. She’s such a hard working partner in our little business. Without her, our Etsy ad ArtFire pages would be blank with no pictures. She’s an awesome photographer.
You can find us on ArtFire at http://www.artfire.com/users/LadyLike. It will take a bit of time to get the items on their blog. We will not be leaving Etsy anytime soon. Love their online market.
