 It’s hard to believe it’s been over a month since our last blog post. The absence of posting is not for a lack of caring, or due to a low priority … there’s actually a very good reason: We are swamped!!

In early September we hosted our first trunk show which was a resounding success. We truly appreciate the support of all of our family and friends and are most grateful for the large number of sales!  Since the trunk show we have been focused on giving some thought to the business in terms of where we want to take it. Oh, and we’ve been sewing. And sewing. And sewing!

The “business” side of the business is finally falling in to place as well. Licenses, permits and bears (oh my!) have all been acquired and all systems are go from that stand point. And today, those darling clothing labels you see pictured here arrived!

In addition to all of the legal mumbo-jumbo, we’ve given a lot of thought to what we want Upsy Daisy to be. And although we absolutely love working with gorgeous fabrics and creating amazing pieces of clothing, we have learned that our true passion is elsewhere.

Where, you may be asking?

With creating upcycled – or repurposed – clothing. From the hunt for the perfect tshirt and figuring out which pieces work well together, to creating each individual piece of art, we can barely contain our excitement!  Don’t be surprised to find hoodies made from our husband’s old concert tshirts, dresses made from our grandfather’s old dress shirts, or old sweaters that have found new life in a completely different form. We love that what we are doing has a green component, we love that each piece is 100% unique, and we love that there is often a sentimental attachment to our creations.  

Yes, we will still create new pieces from the room full of fabric we have which will eventually be available in our etsy store. And although we won’t get going crazy on the upcycled items until after all of our trunk show orders have been completed and delivered, here is a sneak peak at what our future will hold:
