Daisies and Lace

Daisies and Lace
A Hobnobbin' Original size 4

Beautiful daisies on sky blue background make this dress so bright and cheery. The skirt is a full circle for lots of twirl. The underskirt is trimmed with 8 inch wide white tulle lace. This lace is soft not scratchy. Daisies trim the front of the waist for an added dainty look. In the back, there is a sash that ties into a big bow. This dress is fully lined in pale blue. Very soft and comfortable.

All seams are surged for a professional finish. Very easy on and off with the long back zipper.

All Hobnobbin' Originals are created with great care. This is a One of a Kind dress.

This dress is absolutely beautiful! Daisies and Lace make this an extra frilly, fancy dress. Great for a special occassion or for that perfect portrait.

Well, here I am blogging when I should be sewing. Just haven't had the time or energy to get in there and design. I have plans to create a couple of fall outfits and several Christmas dresses. I know I wil be back at it soon. The fabric seems to be calling me louder and louder. It is screaming "CHRISTMAS IS COMING." I won't be able to stay away for long. I just love creating the Hobnobbin' Originals. Oh and by the way, after much thought and some consultation, I have decided to keep the name Hobnobbin' Originals. I liked the name when I first thought of it and nothing else seems to fit me. So I will continue to be Hobnobbin' Originals. I am grateful to all of my Etsy Esmarts team who encouraged me keep the name.

Speaking of Christmas, I have a solution for your shopping needs.
The Esmarts team on Etsy is a great group of extremely creative people. You should check out their gorgeous creations. The team has so much to choose from. All of the team members create their items and sell them on Etsy.
You will find fabulous jewelry items, beautiful original art, handbags and totes, and of course Hobnobbin' Original dresses for little girls. Just check out the links below and you could check off a lot of gifts from your Christmas list. And the best part is that you can shop from home and purchase unique items for all those on your gift list.

What's In A Name

HELP! ! ! I have been trying to decide on a name for my shop, my designs, etc. I searched my current name "Hobnobbin'Originals" and have come up with so rather inappropriate sites. So....I thought that I would just choose another name even though I really liked the one I had. I spent hours trying to come up with something "catchy" that would be a good name. Each time that I thought I found a new name, I would search that name to see what would come up. AHHHHH! To my surprise and disappointment, every name that I thought up was already in use. Often times it would also be associated with undesirable links. What is a person to do?!

So I guess until some great, unique idea comes along, I will remain Hobnobbin'Originals by JB Design Boutique. I just wonder how many other people have had this kind of experience. Surely I am not the only one. If you have any good suggestions, please feel free to let me know.
