Lacie Button Caps

A new hat for the something diane made shop. And just in time for the cooler weather!

These caps are the just the right amount of dainty with the lace design with the added sass of a button. I LOVE them!

They come in sizes from Newborn - 6 months, 6 - 12 months, 12 months - 3 years, 3 - 10 years, and 10 years - Adult. They come custom in any color combo you want.

Want to see them now? Ok!

Aren't they adorable? And you should see them on :)

Added Bonus: If you live in the West Michigan area, Heilman's Nuts & Confections (1804 S. Westnedge Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49008) has 25 of them on hand for instant purchase!

Something for the Boys

Creating items for boys is a bit of challenge for me, and I am not sure why. I LOVE boy items, they are just so darn cute.

So I have come up with a few "additions" that you can add to a beanie, cocoon, etc. if you need something for a little boy (or two).

I am now offering:

Fish (pattern from
Star (not shown below)

And of course the ever popular flower for the girlies too.

And I am up for the challenge if someone is looking for something else too!

Here you can see them on my Basic Beanie (now available in my Etsy shop)

What do you think? Which one is your favorite??

One Year Ago (ish)

One year ago (August 31, 2010) I took a leap of faith opening an Etsy shop. I was scared and nervous. Scared that others wouldn't see my vision. Nervous that my items weren't "cute" enough and whole list of other items. Would I be accepted? Would it flop?

And boy was I wrong to doubt it.

This year I can barely put into words. It was so AMAZING. I met so many awesome bloggers and customers. Got so much great advice about how to run a shop. And most of all learned so much.

Now with something diane made going into its 2 year I have set goals for myself but I am not going to be hard on myself if I don't make them. Because this business is unlike any other, you never know where it is going to take you. It may take you a totally opposite direction than you had hoped but in the end it was the right direction all along.

I can't thank each and everyone of you enough for your support, purchases, kind words, and so much more. It has been a year of so many blessings.
