A Sweet Holiday Treat from the Heart

When my girls came to me asking for ideas to create some handmade goodies for their friends I turned to my fellow DIYers and awesome blogs I've found. We happened across this sweet tutorial to make heart shaped candy cane treats here... so simple and easy!

The only change we made was that we popped our candy cane heart forms into the oven at 200 degrees for about 2 minutes and pinched the edges together once they became soft to reinforce the heart shape. This was the first step we took and prior to pouring the melted chocolate.
As you can see, this is also a great idea to create Valentine treats from your leftover mini candy canes!

When finished they were wrapped in clear cellophane bags with a simple organza bow! So pretty!

We hope you are enjoying this beautiful holiday season! See you soon!

Just outside my studio window

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. I've been busy juggling the kids home and playing fairy godmother in the great in-between time. July continues to be a busy month of filling customers orders, which is a huge blessing. I love my job and working with so many of you!

The above snapshot is what you might say is just outside my studio window ... a glimpse of my life and what I treasure most, my family.
Happy Summer everyone!

Silly Sally Special! :) It's no nightmare;)

... Okay, I know it's a silly title, but it just sounded so fun!!! :)

For the past several years, I have had numerous requests for a Sally dress rendition.
So for a limited time, I have decided to run a pre-order offer for a limited time at a special introductory price of $125.00 for a fabulous Patchwork Princess Sally rendition in either an short-sleeved A-line style or a Simply a Princess Sundress style .... ( YOUR CHOICE!!!) Once we close this offer, the dress will reflect the regular pricing.... so this is a nice discount considering the work that will go into this dress! And for those of you who know my work, know that I love DETAILS ... and ric rac ;)

Since we don't have pictures or exact details, it will be a surprise to some extent, but much similar to the blocking and style of the photo above. I am detailed oriented and so you will not be dissapointed! :)
Broad plans for this dress will be beautiful fabrics and possible applique in a fabulous patchwork of art! Dresses will be fully lined for comfort and quality.
Dresses will ship mid-October to mid-November based on your time need.

Fall's hidden treasure awaits one lucky pirate lass!

Summertime is just about upon us! I'm so excited for barefoot walks, warm balmy breezes and the scent of the salty ocean. The upcoming season always brings about so many opportunities to spend with family and have fun. The kids will be out of school and life's daily routines tend to become a little more laid back.

With the rest that is before us, I can't help but have a need to stay ahead of the game a bit. Fall season is always such a busy time for customs as everyone seems to need things around the same time for their fall festivities and celebrations.
I thought we'd have a little fun here and perhaps encourage some pre-orders for that busy season ahead of us. To add to the fun, we will be running a contest up until June 30th.

DETAILS- It's really simple! Buy a custom dress and receive one entry toward a grand prize drawing that will be held mid August.

* Each custom dress ordered (accessories, pettiskirts and tops not included in this promotion) will count as one entry.
* All orders MUST BE PAID IN FULL by June 30th to qualify... NO EXCEPTIONS.
* There will be ONE WINNER and prize is non negotiable for cash or substitution.
* Residents outside the US will be responsible for shipping costs.

One grand prize will be awarded to ONE WINNER who will be drawn from all orders placed mid August. The Grand Prize is one dress (not previously ordered) from the Simply a Princess Collection OR $100 towards any dress creation not in the Simply a Princess Collection, which will be delivered to the lucky winner mid to late November.

Order as many dresses as you like up until June 30th. As long as your balance is paid in full and you are in agreement with our delivery time, your entries will be valid! :)
It's my pleasure to work with you! I look forward to serving as many little princesses as possible! Please feel free to contact me with orders at

Cruising upon the summer!

With so many new ideas swarming my head, I decided to take the opportunity of a couple of our models who are heading off on a Disney Cruise. We have decided to incorporate a "Minnie Cruise Collection" which will feature a few must haves for your next cruise!
And so,inspired by this little mouse, some ideas sprang to life into comfortable yet costume-y renditions that are ideal for special pirate events and day to day dress up fun! Behold a "Minnie Cruise Collection" :)

And so we dreamed up some magical new designs... here are a couple of "sneak peeks"

A Minnie Pirate Princess in Minnie dots

A Minnie Pirate Princess in red zig zag

And what would a Plundering Pirate Princess be without without all her piratey treasure?

Then there is a nautical element that must not be overlooked! Ahoy! A fun new rendition of Minnie's sailor dress and a sweet salt water dyed appliqued boat tee! These fun additions will have your little princess singing "On the Good Ship Minnie!"

Of course there are some existing designs that are ideal for cruising and keeping with the fun theme shows and dining events.
Ariel, is one of my favorite Disney princesses. This sweet mermaid rendition has been a proven favorite for the parks as well as cruise vacations.

Simply a Princess, Mermaid

Of course, it's always fun to add a little "character" to your ensemble. This under the sea embroidery is a fun addition can be added for a nominal fee to your existing custom order. Most princess names are available for other Ollie Girl designs too!

Nautical, with a vintage like feel skirt and top

And don't forget this Polynesian Princess sundress! Accessories are sold separately!

We look forward to showcasing the new designs toward the end of the month, so stay tuned! As always, it's my pleasure to be your little princess's fairy godmother!
I do appreciate your business!

Something NEW for the NEW Year :)

My poor neglected blog! I suppose using facebook has consumed any energies I have had for writing in light of keeping myself balanced with the Ollie Girl business.

I find it quite funny that the last entry was for the Christmas in July Sale... and I am now finishing up most of those orders! :)

This year has been a very busy one thanks to all of my super wonderful customers!!! Business almost doubled from 2009 and the load I have taken on this year was the biggest yet. I want to express my gratitude for all of your friendship and business. I have met some remarkable people in my ventures with Ollie Girl and wouldn't be in this place without YOU!

As I ponder the coming year, I will be approaching the business a little differently.
There is a need for a faster turnaround time... for your sake and mine too :)!!!

Many have asked how soon to order customs for future trips and vacations.
Since making predictions isn't my best talent, I have decided to offer bookings on a limited basis. They will be available in 5's with a 1-3 week turnaround time. As they are moved, I will offer more bookings depending on my time availability.


Bookings for custom creations will be announced when available on facebook and here.
They will be on a first come, first serve basis. I will make them available for purchase with a deposit of $25.00 per custom. Upon purchase of the deposit, the buyer will let me know which custom they would like and will be invoiced for the price of the custom minus the deposit price. The deposit price of $25 is applied toward the price of the custom. The remaining payment toward the custom will be due within 24 hours of purchase of the deposit. For buyers who are wanting to book more than one custom, I am happy to combine shipping :).

I will keep an "album" of available designs and current prices for you to view and make your selections.
This "quantity control" will insure that customs are moved much quicker and you will have them in your hands in a very timely manner :)


We are also planning on having a "READY TO SHIP" items from time to time. We will be concentrating on the most popular designs and sizes here. They will be available as we have the time to create them.

I look forward to this coming year and serving you! May your holiday season be blessed with beautiful memories! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
