Trying to think ahead

Ok I know its summer time... How can I forget it?! I'm sittin here and it 90 degrees outside!
But this year I promised myself I would think ahead! Often times I don't start making seasonal items until the season is HERE and I find myself racing to get a few things out there. Because crocheting can be very time consuming I decided that this year I would start early with the fall and winter items. But I really want to keep things fresh and not do the same exact thing this year that I did last year. I'm trying to get my creative juices flowing. With that being said, does anyone have any ideas of that they think would be a hit for the fall and winter months? If so definitely post below! Right now I'm working on some funky scarves... But then what? Lol I need to come harder this time around :-)

A little photo session



So as always I've been busy creating, creating, and more creating lol. A couple weeks ago I finally got around to getting some things on a model for some pics. A couple of the things were already in the shop but sometimes putting something on a model and something on a mannequin just ain't the same lol. Thanks to miss Sade for being my model for the day. This won't be the last time you all will see her face so make sure you go on over and follow her on twitter
I have been making more of an effort to get some dresses done so that will probably reflected in the shop in the following weeks, now that I have a little more time on my hands and a little more space (i've moved).
Oh yea and one more thing I officially launched my monthly newsletter to keep you all up to date on what's going on. So make sure ya sign up to receive it. It's only sent out once a month so there's no spamming going on over here so no worries lol. I will likely use it to promote other indie artist on occasion as well as send out coupons from time to time. Here is a peek at the last one I sent out: http://us1.campaign-archive.com/?u=94ec7e84cfde4541e8ee6b110&id=56fcc80ab5
Well that's all the updates for now.... I suck at keeping up with this blog lol I've just learned to come to terms with that. So no more promises about being more consistent with it because I always fail miserably at that .... so until next time ya'll!

Back on the grind.

So now that the semester is fiiiiiinally over, I am really excited to get back to doing what I love doing.... CREATING!
I have so many new ideas that have been just itching to get out of my head and into concreteness lol. This summer I am going to try to push the envelope a little bit and do somethings that are fun, crazy and fashionable but I have to be careful to make sure they are still wearable otherwise they will just sit with me and collect dust and I definitely don't want that! So I plan on taking this week to start doing some concepting and coming with things that I think will be fun while remaining true to myself. I will also still be adding things to the chain reaction collection because as you can see, I still have a few ideas for that. But if you have any suggestions on what you would like to see int he shop, by all means hit me up or post a comment :-). I hope all is well with you and yours !

What's next?!

I am soooo ready for the semester to wrap up! I have big plans for this season! For starters, I plan on participating in a few markets to get my products to the public! I love selling online primarily because it is what is most convenient for me at the moment... BUT I also realize that it's necessary to step outside my box sometimes . As a shopper I like to be able to feel, see, and try things on in person and no matter how good your photos and descriptions are there's nothing like the physical! So this summer I plan to branch out a little. I FINALLY got a new car so transportation won't be an issue for me anymore.... I must say that that has been one of the biggest things holding me back in the past so I am fortunate to be over the hurdle! Now it's time to step my game up. I have some new items I've been gradually introducing... one being the crocheted dookie chain necklaces ...
I will be offering these necklaces in a variety of colors and sizes. The small being 4 links. The medium being 8 links and I haven't decided how many links the large will have but it will have the chain pattern all the way around :-). I also got some extra chunky yarn today that I am going to try this out on... I have a feeling they are gonna be huge though lol... but I think I'll still like it... so we will see!

If you like vintage :-)


Ok so as I told you all before, I have launched a new website vintagevixenboutique.com . At first I was going to combine the vintage with the handmade but I began to see that it was over taking my handmade website, so I split the two up in order to maintain some sort of uniformity and consistancy. I have also decided to take the same step with my blog. So with that being said, if you would like to stay up to date on what happening with vintage vixen (including the addition of new pieces, occassional coupon codes etc) then be sure to follow http://vintagevixenboutique.blogspot.com/ . I plan on puttin together a lookbook for that blog so that should definitely be fun!!!! If you are Richmond VA and would like to participate in that then definitely hit me up!

A quick update!


Hey ya'll! I hope all is well with everyone! I just wanted to come let you all know what's been going on! First off I wanted to let you all know that I have been working on some new spring items for Wild Child Dzigns but as you probably already realize, when it starts getting warm out I hace to do a complete 360 on what I offer because clearly, what's appropriate for fall and winter is not what's appropriate for winter. So I will be focusing on bags, halter, crochet necklacess, and earrings (among other things) for the spring and summer. Of course there will be a few skirts and halters as well :-) . So stay tuned!

I'm going Vintage!!!!

Sooooo I have thought long and hard about including vintage pieces on the site , and I have decided to go on and give it a try :-) .
I have really been wanting to offer more of a variety of things. I hate when things seem to get stagnant. So doing this way is just my little way of branching out a little. Depending on how well it is received, I will be adding funky vintage finds from the 70-80's and sometimes somethings a bit older. I just wanted to give you all a heads up on what's to come. Check out the video below to get a sneak peak! You will be the first to know when the vintage items are up for grabs! I hope ya'll like!

Going in a new direction....

Model: Sade
So as always, it has taken me some time to get around to making a new blog post. School is definitely kicking my butt! Unfortunately, I have not had much time to do anything outside of school, and going to work :-( . But I only have about 2 more months to focus hard core , then I can finally relax for a bit (summer vacation) :-)!!!! And then I will only have one more class to take in order to graduate!!!!
But in the mean time, I have been sneaking in a little time here and there whenever possible to work on new pieces for the spring.
I have managed to finish about 5 new pieces so far... but I haven't gotten them up yet for two reasons.

1) Lack of time to even take decent photographs.... which definitely take time and patience!

2) I kind of want to wait until I have a decent sized collection of items to present them all at once! I think it's more exciting that way lol.


Over the winter, I mostly focused on accessories... scarves, earrings, bags etc. (just as I said I would do).

But Now I have so many fresh ideas for larger pieces (dresses, tops, shorts etc) so that is what I have been focusing my little bit of free time on. I will continue to add accessories as well because those seem to be the best sellers. But I will also remain true to myself by adding clothing as well.

Last but not least, I have started a monthly newsletter that will keep you up to date on what to expect next, occasional coupon codes, upcoming events and much more!
If you would like to be added to the mailing list, simple CLICK HERE

As always, I hope everyone is having a great week!

New items and photos!

Hey ya'll!
So lately iv'e been working on improving my product photos and I am getting better with time. The other day I had the opportunity to work with a local model (Sade). She really did my items some justice. She has such a warm spirit, and as you can see, home girl can work the camera lol. Here are some of the pictures we took!

SO I'M BACK!

lol. I always take a crazy long hiatus from this blog for some reason. But I always come back lol. Lately I have just been brain storming on things I would like to offer for spring and summer... I know I will definitely have a few dresses available but aside from that, it will have to be a surprise lol.
I have been keeping myself busy making tons of Youtube videos these past few weeks.
I used to have a youtube channel not to long ago but I closed it, and recently I decided to start a new one.
My most recent video is about consignment...so check them out below:



All the things your grandma won't make and more!
One of a Kind Crocheted fashions from Wild Child Dzigns, plus random rants that have absolutely nothing to do with anything lol!
