Sunday Snapshot--Ruffled Feathers Company

Last Saturday our church hosted a Country Craft and Bake Sale to help raise funds to cover the costs for flooding repair to their basement. I am pleased to have offered what I had to the fundraising efforts--some skirts that I made during the past few months.

I really do enjoy immensely making skirts (much to the dismay of my husband and three boys ... which hilariously gave me the name for my small little business, "Ruffled Feathers."--The skirts have definitely ruffled their feathers on an ongoing basis.)

And can you believe I sold 6 skirts, 3 orders and 2 tutus! Which I thought was pretty good considering I'm not a large operation at all ... (my entire pre-made inventory at the time was 16 skirts and 2 tutus.)

Here's a peek at my setup (click on any photo to see it larger):

I LOVE this photo ... do you see why?

Here he is again ... my little helper ... his BIG brothers went to a hockey game and he ... was stuck with mom selling skirts. Probably not his first choice ... but he made due. I just heart him SO much!

If you like any of these skirts please let me know, I still have a few of the pre-made ones ready to go. AND I have leftover fabric that I can make to order. Check them out here at
IN FACT, remember to check out Nihaoyall as Ruffled Feathers will be one of the featured give-away items THIS WEEK in Stefanie's 30 days of Giveaways!
