I’m Baaaaack!

It’s been 2 years since Sandy (to the day!!), and after rebuilding our house, my business, and so much in between, I’m finally at a point where I’m officially reopened for business! It’s been long and I’m super pumped to get back into the swing of things! I’m (almost) settled in – stay tuned for more pictures of my new studio. I absolutely love it:) Though I’m taking my time to find the perfect finishing touches, it’s a dream!

Check out my Mbellishd blog to see what’s new, and to hear about sales and more!

Rebuilding Post Sandy

As many of you know, my home was ruined during the infamous Hurricane Sandy. Although we made it out ok our house had to be rebuilt. (Luckily my hubby is an architect!) Along with the home that drowned, a lot of the stock I had from my accessories company Mbellishd went with it. Anything that so much as looked at the water, I tossed. That, in conjunction with moving twice in the interim (once from the old house to my mother-in-law right after, then somewhere else until we moved back home) and being my own decorator for the new house, maintaining constant watch on the sub-contractors etc., took nearly all the time I had. Though I kept up Mbellishd, I couldn’t give it my full focus.

Well, we are back at home, getting more settled with each passing day, and I am in the midst of putting together my new studio!! Here is a picture of the shelving that was just installed. I love love love my grey-stained floors against the pink walls!

Now that the shelving is in, I will decide on desk shape and room decor. Stay tuned for pics of my developing studio and finally of my new stock 🙂 I can’t wait to share it all!

The fascinating world of Pinterest

A few months ago I joined Pinterest.

I had originally read an article about this up and coming pin-board style site where users can create themed albums by allowing it’s users to browse other people’s albums. If a user finds photos in someone else’s album that they would like to incorporate into their own, they “re-pin” it to their own album. These albums can be titled anything but some popular ones are Hair, Makeup, My style, DIY, Beautiful, Dream home etc.

It’s interesting to note that in North America about 83% of users are women!

I especially love the inspirations I get by seeing other people’s My style pins. It is also a phenomenal advertising tool. If you have something you create and either sell or want to show the world, this is a great place to do it and reach a world full of people who may have never stumbled (a great web tip as well!) upon your website or work.

If you are on Pinterest definitely follow me and I will do the same to you!

My latest craft!

As you probably know (and for those who don’t) I sell hair accessories on my site headturnerboutique.com.

For the little girl hats I’ve been using a porcelain doll:

I think she is so pretty. My problem is that her head is tiny. The cap above is for infants yet it looks huge. And her head does not fill out the hat. I think the disproportion can confuse customers looking into buying a particular product. Especially those who are not very visual in regards to imagining how it would look on a larger head.

After looking around for other size dolls, I could not find a pretty face with a larger head.

So, I came up with another idea. To me, size was more important to display things correctly and I decided to forget the face.

I went to Micheal’s last week to see what I could come up with. I purchased: a wooden candlestick, a wooden base, styrofoam balls and primer/spray paint. I then found some material to cover the white balls (I wanted to go cream) and tulle to cover it. I then spray painted the wooden pieces and had my hubby put them together. And voilà!

With a hat:

Check out new baby/girl bands!

I just posted new pix of baby/girl soft bands on my site! You can check them out here.
