Sew Smart

With a little one, these days our car is less than tidy. So I finally ordered an awesome (and oh-so-stylish!) car litter bag from super-crafty Allyson Hill. It's double lined with a removable garbage bag and adjustable strap (to fit on the back of the headrest or shifter knob). What a clever idea!

I'm back!.. sort of...

Well, I locked my blog awhile back because I was just feeling overwhelmed and it bummed me out to see it just sitting there. I just needed to take a break and try and regroup. THANK YOU to those blog-readers out there who inquired about my absence.

So, here I am again. With Summer coming to an end and back-to-school excitment in the air, I am ready to get back to it... or at least to give it a go anyway. Fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of year (good thing my last name is "Herbst", eh?) and I have lots of plans for the shop and high hopes for Herbst Handmade in the coming months (I couldn't resist the alliteration :P).

So here's one thing I wanted to show you.. check out these new magnets I just made! You can't really tell by the pic, but they are nice and glossy (and supercute!:)). I am going to send them out as a little 'thank you' gift with every order. What do you think?...
