It’s hard being in 2 places at once!  I’m trying to keep all the info matching from Facebook and for the blog :)  Facebook is so easy to keep up with even though this isn’t hard either~  However if you want to see current pricing and current pieces of work visit the Facebook page since I post things there almost daily!


It’s up to date and shows all my most recent works :)  A HUGE gallery of new things!  Thanks to all the Absolutely Handmade supporters!  I’ve been working nonstop since our relocation to AZ and it feels great!  I can definitely feel how much AH’s work is appreciated!  Now to find local shows and it will feel like home again :)  Email me if you need anything or are interested in booking a Home Trunk Show :)  Absolutelyhandmade@gmail.com

 Business is doing better and better all the time!  I really appreciate all my gracious customers who are helping to keep my business open!  My family is very appreciative for the support!  All this wouldn’t be possible without you guys!  I wouldn’t have the flexibility to take care of all 4 of our kids and be readily available for our son who has Asperger’s Syndrome if it wasn’t for the great customers I have that keep coming back to Absolutely Handmade because of our flexibility, creativity and affordability!  Customer service is such a big part of this business as is word of mouth so I thank everyone for all the referrals!

Fall/Christmas Show Schedule

Well lots of people have been asking :)  Where will Absolutely Handmade be over the next few months?  Mostly at the flea market… I will be at The Big One next weekend October 16 and 17, November 20 and 21, December 4 and 5th for the Christmas show and  18 and 19 for the regular show and last minute gifts.  I have the key fobs which make great Christmas gifts as well as the personalized sippy cups, sipsters and coffee cups.  I will have some stockings at some of the shows coming up.  I also have a show November 5 and 6 at Desoto Hills Baptist Church on Getwell Rd in Southaven just past Church Rd.  This is a great show full of tons of local vendors.  I am looking for a few more home shows and starting to book for Spring!  Remember we are always at our booth in Millington at Open Marketplace and we are excited they are going to expand in the Olive Branch/ Southaven area as well as the Collierville area very soon!  I’ll have a booth at both🙂 I’ve been pestering them about a timeline because I know these markets will be awesome! 

Well back to work!  I have posted new pictures of my clothing I’ve been working on to the Facebook Fanpage http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/pages/Olive-Branch-MS/Absolutely-Handmade/48743646809?ref=ts  and we are on our way to hitting 1000 fans and a big giveaway!  Please go and “like” the page to help us meet that goal :)

The Big One and Host a Home Party

Absolutely Handmade will NOT be at The Big One this weekend.  We have encountered a good problem to have… I have so many orders I don’t have time to sneak away to work LOL!  It’s so good to be wrapped up in so much that you don’t HAVE to go to work somewhere else!  I’m hoping you guys keep me busy!  Please remember to email me with anything you need to have done as well as email me to set up your home show.  Host a home show and earn 10% of your party’s total sales to spend for yourself!  It’s a great way to visit with good friends and shop all at one time!  I’m so blessed to have so many wonderful customers near and far that are helping to support my little company that I developed 5 years ago first to stay home with the kids and now it gives me the flexibility I need to be with my Asperger baby whenever he needs me!  Thank you so much for everything!

AH has joined Open Marketplace in Millington, TN!!!!

Well I will have booth 2102 up and running by the end of the week :)  I went today and viewed the space and got some pricing ideas and got some decorating ideas and I am so excited!  I will be taking paint and stock out there this week with the hopes of getting everything up and going!  It may take another few days though but let’s hope not!  It’s a lot of work but God has dropped this in my lap and I cannot wait to see what kind of blessings it brings for my family!  I’m so excited for the kiddos to get into school this week and for me to get to hit the ground running for work!  I know that there is a lot of new things going on with the incentives and booths and home shows and such!  I cannot wait!  It’s still amazing to me to think that all this started with me and my little Singer machine with the intentions of working on stuff for my daughter to realizing the income potential for my family that God had given me with my talent!  It feels so good to have a larger family and know that I can help support it :)  But I have to thank all my loyal customers and fans that support Absolutely Handmade because without you guys I wouldn’t still be around 5 yrs later!  THANK YOU!

Back to School! Hosting a Party?

Well the shop is buzzing this week getting everyone ready for back to school :)  Our house is bustling as a whole this year with 4 kiddos in Elementary school!  They are all so excited!  Mom is busy thinking of how her business will grow this fall.  As you all know I’ve been mentioning now for a few weeks that I am going to start traveling all over to bring my items to you in your homes and let you host a party for friends with incentives.  Well I sat down last night and gave it some thought!  I am going to offer the host of the parties 10% of their total home party sales to spend for themselves!  Another words if you invite all your friends and have a $1000 show you get to spend $100!  Another reward will be having a friend from your party host a show.  You will earn an additional $25 to spend once your friend hosts a show that makes sales!  I’m trying to keep coming up with ideas to help my loyal customers and grow the business!  I feel like this will be a win-win situation for everyone :)  I can’t wait!  Please email me at absolutelyhandmade@gmail.com about your party!  I can’t wait to meet and visit with more and more fans and customers all over🙂
