Want to search designs and don't know where to start?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is:
"What designs do you have?" or "Where can I see all of your designs?"
Well, the answer is not just "click here" because I don't have every design on my computer nor do I make all of them.  You'll have to do a bit of searching but it's SO easy!  I'm going to tell you exactly how I find all my designs and you can start there!

Always remember, you can send me a THEME and I can come up with something to go with it.  You're not required to choose a design, that's just the way some prefer to do it :)

A couple step-by-step instructions when wanting to view designs: 
1. Go to any of the following websites; these are all my favorite websites I search most frequently and get the best quality designs from: 
2. Find their search bar and type in a keyword or follow their menu buttons.  If you're wanting a Christmas design, type "Christmas," etc.
3. If you find a design or two you like, copy the links and send to me in an email or copy on to your order form.
4. I will then be able to give some insight on which design will work best to help you decide (if you've chosen more than one), or I will be able to give you a proper quote off the design you choose.
5. The order process is almost finalized at this point and we may email a bit more to iron out a few details, but that's about it!

If you ever have any questions, just email me.  That's what I'm here for.  100 emails is better than 0 emails as long as you get the item you want and it's perfect for your occasion.

What is an Applique?

And what's the different between an applique and embroidery?  I am asked this question all the time, so I thought I'd try to work up a picture to help answer these questions....never hesitate to ask me questions and make your item as perfect and custom as you like!

Fonts - Embroidery

These are the fonts that stitch the best.  Sometimes we will run into a situation where a font will not stitch well because of the fabric it is going on, etc.  There are a few more I still need to add, but these are great choices and look good on all fabrics...

**Always feel free to email me with a request to see your order in any font**

Designs - There are THOUSANDS!

I have hundreds of designs and I don't have the time to make samples of all of them.  PLUS, there are thousands out there, if not millions, and I can get it if I don't have it already!  Feel free to visit sites and refer me to them by copying and pasting links into your inquiry emails.  If you're interested in one of the design categories I have, just email and ask me to send you a page of design examples.  As I make more items, I will always post pictures and build my online "library" but I have no idea where I would even start posting the design examples on the site because there are so many!!

Some of my favorite design sites:

*Thanks to Kim Wittry for introducing me to all of these wonderful sites!!!

Again, here are SOME "categories" to consider when thinking about your design:

4th of July
Aggies, Longhorns (I can more than likely get your school)
Boy STUFF, like "Big Bro, Lil Bro" and many other types of boy designs, like robots, trucks, tractors
Characters, like Superman, Batman, Pooh, Tiger, Strawberry Shortcake, Dora, etc
Girl STUFF, like "Big Sis, Lil Sis" and many other types of girlie things, like cupcakes and bows, etc
Rock On!
St. Patty's Day
Valentine's Day

Navigating My Blog

I can't tell you how many people have told me how confusing it is to navigate a blog...not just mine, but all of them.  I never really understood them myself until I created my own blog and figured it out from the inside-out. 

Here's Blog Navigation 101:
Basically, every "post" I make, I add a quick link, or a label, that connects that post to all the links or buttons down the left side of my page.  Note that EVERY post I make gets put on the HOME page in order by the most recent post, no matter what.  But let's say I posted Applique Fonts last Wednesday...if you click the "Fonts" button down the left side of the page, it will take you to all the posts that I've labeled "Fonts" and that will lead you to Applique Fonts.  I also can label the same post multiple things...not only can I label it "Fonts" but I could get super specific and label it "Applique Fonts" and you could then click on the quick link directly to Applique Fonts.

Another important note:  Once you click a button or quick link, only the latest 3-5 posts are visible on that page.  After scrolling to the bottom of the page, be sure you click "Older Posts" to see the rest of the posts (if any) that share the same label.  Sometimes there may not be more, but a lot of times there are multiple posts under the same button or quick link.  For example, "Boys" and "Girls" will eventually have multiple posts that you'll have to click through because I will have MANY Boys and Girls posts :)

I hope this helps.  If it doesn't, leave me a comment here and tell me what you're not understanding.  I want it to be SO EASY to navigate my site, so any advice is welcome.  Happy creating!!!
