Long Time, No See

Recently people have been asking me, "Are you still making tutus?".  I am always surprised when someone asks this, because, YES!  I make LOADS of tutus!  Then I realize, they are probably asking because I haven't posted anything on this blog in ages.

Since the last time I posted anything, I have rejoiced over new life, mourned the death of loved ones, embarked on many journeys (some literal and some figurative), celebrated several holidays, and much, much more.  You too? But life continues to move forward, and I am thankful for all of my blessings.

I have been working with some boutiques again, but that is going to stop this week.  I have spent the last several months really trying to figure out what I want to do/where I want my business to go.  And here's what I want to do: make custom tutus.  Plain and simple, that's what I want.  While the idea of having "my" tutus in stores across the nation is flattering, the fact is, that could never happen.  It could never happen because "my" tutus are made by me.  Upon your request.  For your little princess.  Exactly the way you want it.  So, for now, I am going to continue making custom tutus, and I hope you continue to enjoy them!

Now, you know I haven't posted anything for quite some time.  The truth is, I haven't even checked on my blog since before Christmas.  So, imagine my surprise today when I logged in to my account and saw that I am averaging over 1,000 unique hits a day!  That is crazy!  In November that number was much, much lower. Like, double digit lower. Thank you all for checking out this blog!  Many of you have enjoyed the tutu tutorial, and I hope you keep coming back.  Also, I have some new tips that I will have to share with you!

I cannot remember if I told you about the tutus that I was making for a group of junior high girls for Halloween.  Anyhow, they all wanted to be a "color", so I made them some tutus.  They are all so adorable--I love it!  How about you?!

 

Also, I can't resist showing off my beautiful dinosaur and kitty:

And finally, here are some pictures of my doll tutus.  These tutus were very popular at Christmas and at the craft shows I participated in.  I will get these added to the order page soon, but for now, the doll tutus come in any SINGLE color.  They fit dolls 16"-18", and they are $12 each.

I took a picture of the doll tutu next to a standard 18" tutu.  The doll tutu is sooooooooo tiny!

If you haven't "liked" Heart Break Kids on Facebook, please do so!  I need to get my FB link on the website, but I'll need to enlist my husband's help for that!  Check out FB though, because there is going to be a St. Patrick's Day tutu giveaway next week, but it will only be on FB!

Well, that's all for now.  See you in a few months.  Just kidding!  Be well, my friends.  I'll see you soon! ;)
