Dance li’l darlings…

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Had an impromptu photo shoot with my friend Kelly over at Desmond Brown Design. The little girls had a blast…check out how sweet they are…just dancing away without a care in the world : )

We hope you adore these new pieces. In order to keep things new and keep my sanity, I’m going back to the days of creating a few pieces of each style. I’ve tried to mass produce (and still will to a certain extent for wholesale orders) however, I am not a machine and in sticking with unique, creative and being true to myself, this will be the way it shall be. Keeps me happy and my customers happy : )

Happy day! Take a little time to dance…

Gettin’ crafty over holiday break…

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

I’ve loved crafts all my life. I’ve cross-stitched, crocheted, knit, painted, made jewelry, designed stationery, scrapbooked, etc, etc….oh..yea, and I sew. Well, when I found Pinterest (sigh) I kept pinning all these things that “I’d love to do if I had more time” so…here ya go…a car ride to the Dells and a late night on the couch catching up on General Hospital…and Voila!– this is what you get…

Some colorfully crocheted coasters…

and a rag rug that I crocheted out of scrap fabrics…(that my son seems to think is better used as a play mat for his action figures)

Oh…and here’s a pic of the popcorn blanket that I crocheted…

to go with the newly covered sofa cushions….

Hope you like!

New shops…

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

So sorry to have been missing for the past few months…what’s new in the world of HB designs? Well, for starters, we’re working our way into new boutiques. We’ll try to keep you updated on facebook (which is so much easier to update than the blog), but I’ll try to get better at this.

We’re now in M & Em’s in Glen Ellyn, IL and will be coming soon to Ana Bananas in Naperville!

What else is new…working on some new styles for fall. I know…it’s a bit early to mention fall, considering summer has yet to show her beautiful face. Today was my #3′s last day of pre-school and she had to wear a coat!! Insane! Anyway, I’ve got some ideas up my sleeve and just need to find some time to sew everything out.

This summer, we’ll be showcasing HB designs at the 3 French Hens Market in Morris, IL. Stop by if you’re in the area! I’ll keep you posted on dates and times!!

Hmmm…yup, this was totally random. I’ll get the hang of it…someday! For now…visit me on facebook and become a fan!!

Coming Soon…!!

Monday, December 6th, 2010

You’ll be able to find hazel brown designs at two new locations. Heatheresque in Naperville, IL, as soon as this week!–and Red Door Studio in Waldorf, MD. Red Door will open their doors on January 8th. I’m very excited! If you know of a boutique near you where my products would be a good fit, please let me know!!

Here are some of the things I dropped off at Monogram Madness last week.

Ruffle Wristlet…

Ladies’ Skirt…

Grey Velour Ruffle Pants

Livi Leggies…

If you’re local, you can stop into Monogram Madness to check out these items and more — 190 E 5th Ave, Naperville, IL. Otherwise, check out all our goodies at www.hazelbrowndesigns.com

Fall…already??…

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I know…you’re all doing your back to school shopping and wondering when the heck the new HB stuff will be online. Soon, I swear! I’ll have things in the store (monogram madness) by Friday and will be adding things online this weekend. OR maybe you’re a procrastinator like I am (I have 7 days left to find Nikolas a school bag and lunch sack and I’m sure everything is already picked over so I’m praying my poor guy won’t be stuck taking a My Little Pony school bag on his first day!!)…so maybe you haven’t noticed that the site has been lacking in the Fall department. Either way, new stuff coming soon…VERY SOON!!

I’ve already got lots booked for this Fall. Some private trunk shows and a Ladies’ Night out event in September, more trunk shows in October and two craft fairs in November.

You can book your own private trunk show by sending an email to cs@hazelbrowndesigns.com

Anyway, part of the reason I’ve been holding out is that I’m working with Puddle Jumpers Photography for the fall line. I’m soooo excited! Her work is FABULOUS! You should check out her work. But we’ll be shooting next week and I wanted to get stuff online a bit earlier so you’ll have to deal with my amateur shots for a short while ; )

I’ve also got some women items ready to unleash…I really wish I had some pics to go with this post…you’ll love them…partly because you’ve been asking for them, and also because I know how cute they are!!

Okay then…off to take some pics!

Oak Brook, IL Fine Craft Show

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Had a great time at OakBrook, as usual. Got plenty of compliments on the clothing as everyone is used to seeing purses and handbags. I was a bit nervous as it was my first clothing show, but had a great turnout, a great time and a lot of fun!
