Welcome Spring!

To say we are excited about the arrival of Spring may be a bit of an understatement!  We are definitely looking forward to sunshine and warmer days!  With the onset of the new season, we have decided to do a little "spring cleaning" on our facebook page, so I thought I would take the opportunity to update our much neglected blog as well.  I have deleted our photo albums from our facebook page as many of the items included in those photos are no longer available.  Also, we have had to make some changes in our pricing.  For any orders that have already been placed, the original prices will remain for those customers.  The new prices will be reflected in orders placed hereafter.  Our monogramming rates will now start at $6 for basic size monograms with larger monograms at a slightly higher price.  Appliques will now begin at $10 each, with some larger appliques being a bit higher as well.  Many people do not understand the amount of time and supply costs that go into even a "simple monogram"....much less what can be very tedious and time consuming work of an appliqued design.  We feel our prices are still VERY reasonable!  Many of our baby items also have new prices and you are welcome to call the shop for pricing questions prior to placing orders.

We have also started carrying some Zuccini brand children's clothing.  I am posting pictures and prices of some of the adorable items we have in stock.

 Baby boy light blue gingham bubble
Sizes available: 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months and 24 months

New Items!

My good intentions of keeping this blog up-to-date were apparently just that...good intentions.  I haven't even done well keeping our facebook page caught up.  We have made or now carry so many new items that haven't been posted anywhere, but word of mouth advertising and simply drop-in customers have kept us very busy!  But...just in time for the up-coming holidays, I thought I would show a few of our new items!  We now have Christmas tree skirts and stockings!  I love the bright and festive colors and they will add that perfect touch to your holiday d├ęcor.  The chevron tree skirt is in the photo, but we also have the stripe and the polka dot ordered and should be arriving today or early next week.  (The patterns will be the same as the stockings in the photo.)
Both the tree skirts and stockings can be monogrammed to add a personalized touch for the holidays!
We are also carrying jewelry and scarves in our shop!  This is an older picture of the jewelry, so not all pictured may be available, but we have several NEW pieces that haven't been posted to facebook yet including CHEVRON bubble necklaces!

 This was our first shipment of infinity scarves.  (again, not all pictured are available)  We have added to the mix and now have SOME chevron infinity scarves.  Imagine the gift-giving possibilities!
 One of our new policies that hasn't been posted here, is that we are no longer taking custom SEWING orders.  We will still take custom appliqued shirt and monogram orders, but the children's clothing that we make in-shop will be limited to our pattern and fabric choices.  We are trying to keep inventory available, but it is hard to keep items on the shelves!  Since this is a new policy, we are working out the kinks and will hopefully continue to improve in this area.
A few of our other new items (that I will try to post pictures of soon!) include monogrammed pocket tees, monogrammed caps, and shirts simply with monograms or monogrammed patches.  These have been VERY popular items for us over the past few months!  Please place any personalized orders that you would like before the end of year very SOON...our cut-off deadline is fast approaching and we don't want you to be left out of ordering!  Stop by and see us soon!!

Happy New Year!

We are back at the shop and are already tackling orders for 2013!!  We have returned to our regular business hours: Mon-Fri 8:00-5:00 and Saturdays from 9:00-4:00.  We are already working on Valentine's Day orders, so go ahead and get those orders in!  We are also taking orders for birthdays, baby gifts, general occasion outfits, etc., and we also have a nice selection of bags, casserole totes and scarves.  Feel free to stop in and see us soon!!
I am not one to make resolutions, but I do have all intentions of doing a better job of keeping our blog up-to-date!  ;)  I am starting off with a picture of a new applique for our teaching friends!  We fixed this sweatshirt for my niece, who is an elementary ed major..LOVE IT!  Fabric colors could be changed to match school colors, or you could choose something new and fresh! 

As always, feel free to stop by the shop to place your order or send us an email!  We are so excited to see what fun changes 2013 has in store for Creekside!!

Order Deadline and Info

Hello to all of our friends! We will no longer be accepting orders for the remainder of 2012! We are truly appreciative of all of you who have made this another wonderful year for Creekside Creations! Our shop will remain open with regular hours, with the exception of our holiday closings, and customers may come in and purchase items without monogramming. Also keep in mind that we do have gift certificates available which would make wonderful stocking stuffers! For those of you who have remaining orders, we are working diligently to fill those for you and you should be hearing from us soon. As a way to show our appreciation to all of you, we will also be having a couple of fun giveaways sometime between now and the end of the year! This will not be a contest to generate more "likes" for our facebook page, but will simply be a way for us to show our gratitude to all of our wonderful friends!  I plan to host the giveaway here on our blog so that everyone has a chance to enter...including those who do not have a facebook account.  Lastly, we will be closed today, November 21st, and will re-open with regular business hours on Monday, November 26th. Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!

Good morning!  Due to a large number of orders that we have already taken, we are going to have to go ahead and set a new deadline for orders.  If you wish to place an order for an appliqued Christmas shirt, please do so by 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24th.  This also applies to baby gifts, birthday shirts, etc.  If you know you will need a baby gift or a birthday shirt appliqued before the end of the year, PLEASE place your order now!  Also note, we are accepting NO sewing orders at this time!  I have a REALLY hard time telling people "no", but when it comes down to sacrificing time spent with my boys in order to fill extra requests, I will muster up the guts to do so.  I would never hurt anyone's feelings intentionally, but when I look around and see how fast time is slipping by, I don't want to regret not taking a little more of it to spend with my family.  Thank you for understanding.  If slots open up, we will try to take a few more sewing orders, and I will post here if that is the case.  We will continue to take orders for personalized casserole totes, purses, tote bags, diaper bags, backpacks, duffles, scarves, etc., for a few more weeks, so be sure to stop by for some really GREAT gift ideas!  Have a wonderful weekend!
