A little bit about Doodlebug

We met Cynthea a little over 8 months ago and fell in love with the look and feel of her company. She is a hands on owner that is as sweet as her designs. Here is how Cynthea got started in paper... It all started when owner, Cynthea needed just the right paper for her sisters baby shower invitations, and just couldn't find what she was looking for ... ...read more

Laminate News

12 Jan 2011

Laminate is coming sooner than later.   Our first line of laminate was scheduled to arrive in May, with Lila Tueller's line Lola's posies. However, our sales reps were getting restless because they wanted samples of laminate to show at their sales appointments now not in May. Sugar and Spice just happened to be in production at the factory when we called... so we had yardage made for our sales reps plus a little more for us to sell.  We received the samples today and they are gorgeous.  The colors are fantastic (Thanks Amanda) and the laminate is so ... ...read more

Happy New Year! We are excited about 2011 and wish everyone a year with health and happiness. We have much to be grateful for. I really love this time of year.  A time of giving, a time of reflection. I think we all meet people on occasion that open our eyes, inspire and motivate us to do good. I meet such a person a couple of years back named "Liz". She is a beautiful person inside and out and taught me what it means to help others. Liz visits refugee families that have recently relocated to our area.  Many of ... ...read more

The fashionable Lila Tueller always brings great color and design to fabric. Lila is our featured artist of the month.  Her latest line Isabella, is her first line with Riley Blake Designs.  I wanted everyone to get to know Lila a little better so I asked her a few questions about her beginnings, inspirations and late night treats and this is what she had to say.... I started painting young because I had two older siblings who were accomplished artists by the time I was maybe 3 or 4, so I was always getting into their art supplies. But mostly ... ...read more

Sweet Divinity Quilt

15 Nov 2010

We have so much to share with so little time. Market was fantastic... seeing our customers face to face is always a treat (and winning an award for our booth was not bad either).  We ate too many truffles and too much mexican food, if you can really eat too much mexican food and too many truffles. We will be posting pictures of market over the next few days. Anyhoo, I am way behind on tutorials so I wanted to post our latest tutorial today. It is called "Pocket full of Pinwheels" by KarrieLyne of FreckledWhimsy.com. and it uses ... ...read more
