A Little Update.

Ack! I've been MIA the last few days.  As always, life between GGG and my little ones (and all their activities) is crazy.  We're juggling soccer out the wazoo right now (5 practices and 3 games per week) as well as lots of other odds and ends that comes with 4 little ones.  Time gets away from me and posting on here seems to be the first thing that sorry....I'll work on it.  This week has been epically big in the sewing and shipping departments yay to that!. :)

However, I am feeling just a tad overwhelmed at the moment (okay, to be a little more honest, my head is spinning) as we are also trying to pack things up around here to move...changes and transitions abound!  Mr. GGG and I have exciting plans to build a home in the not to distant future (with a super amazing studio to boot--my vision for GGG is big ), but before we build our dream house, we have to find a good interim home for at least a bit as we continue to pay some bills and figure out what the dream casa looks like.  For the moment, I need to let you all know that customs will be closed until we do get moved and settled in some sort of temporary transitional home.  I'm unsure of how long that will be, but I promise (cross my heart with a cherry on top) that I'll be sure to keep you updated as we go.  If you already have a custom or have spoken to me recently about one and I've committed, you're good, and they should be done soon!  In the next few weeks, my plan is to have more frequent RTS listings as well as a few fun, new "sales" and limited edition MTO dresses that should keep everyone at bay until I am able to reopen custom spots again.  I hope everyone understands my need to take a step back, or maybe just a step in a different direction at this time.  Exciting new things are coming in the future,  I can promise you that! :)

Merry Christmas!

Hey friends!  I know I promised a new blog post a long time ago, but I've had trouble finding the time to actually sit down and write it!  So, since I'm kicked back here today cuddling my sweet little sickie, I figured I'd take the opportunity to fill you in on what's been going on around here lately!  Most all of my 2011 customs were completed as of last week.  I actually think I have one custom order left, and it will be on its way shortly.  And if you think that means I might have a bit of free time on my hands, you'd be wrong. ;)  In addition to being mommy and spending time with my sweet littles (and holiday shopping and planning school parties, etc.), this week I'll be working on getting RTS items available to get to you in time for Christmas as well as working on some very special pieces to ship to some past giveaway winners.  And speaking of Giveaways, I wanted to do one last GGG Giveaway of 2011!!!   The Christmas GGG Giveaway will consist of THREE winners....why three?  I think three is a special number at Christmas...Jesus received three gifts at his birth (from the wise men), therefore my kiddos get three gifts from my husband and I under the tree, and so, I want to give away three GGG gifts this year also.  Here's how it will work, leave a comment telling me what you'd want me to make for you if can only be one piece...feel free to be as specific or as general as you'd like.  Don't forget to include size!  Also leave an email address in the comment where you can be contacted.  It's as simple as that.  For an extra entry, as always, share on your own Facebook wall about GGG or the Christmas Giveaway and leave a second comment.  The giveaway will close at 11pm on Thursday, December 15th, and I will use to randomly select three winners...and I will make those three winners whatever they have wished for in their comment.  Winners' items will be shipped via Priority mail by Monday, December 19th, so that they can be under your tree or on your little in time for Christmas.  Good luck and I want to wish ALL of you a very Merry Christmas from myself, Mr. GGG, and all of the GGG littles!!!

I didn't forget....

So things around GGG have been kind of quiet lately....a lot of it is due to me not feeling good, but also partly due to me feeling the need to step back just a little and spend some time with my family.  I'm sure things will pick back up again soon...heck, I've got Christmas dresses a-coming, but for now, we've got a winner for our GIVEAWAY!  There were 157 entries and I plugged those numbers into and it gave me #12....which means Jane Perillo, you are the WINNER! :)   I'll email you soon to get the details of your custom underway!  Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned....there will be more giveaways coming up (like prior to Christmas)!! :)

Customs through Christmas...

Hey friends!  Okay, so let's talk customs!  In an effort to maximize efficiency, custom spots this time around will be done a little bit differently than in the past.  I will open up the next few available spots this Thursday, the 27th.  Notice I said, FEW.  I will list the spots available on Big Cartel.  Each spot will be good for one custom.  There will be a 5.00 deposit for each one.  If at any time you change your mind and decide you don't want your spot or if you decide you don't like the finished product and don't take it, the 5.00 will not be refunded.  However, if you do love and approve your custom (which I hope you will), the 5.00 will be taken off the finished product.  The rest of your invoice will be sent at the time of approval.  From now through December, my hope is that customs will be other words I hope that they will move very quickly and spots will be revolving (as soon as a few are done a few more will be put up on Big Cartel).  In addition, RTS items will also be rotating in and out of the shop! 

On Thursday, the first few spots will be available at 10am central time.  There will also be second batch available Thursday evening at 9pm central time.  I hope that one of those times works for everyone!  These spots will only be for customs using the shirts that I have available here and will have a turnaround time of 2 weeks or less. 

If you are wanting to send me a shirt to make into a OOAK GGG piece, there will be a separate listing for those at 2pm central time on Thursday.  Those pieces I hope will also be continuous and revolving, but the turnaround on those will vary greatly depending on how quickly customers can get me their shirts. 

I hope with all my might that doing things this way at least through the holidays will make things a bit less overwhelming on us all!  Please feel free to email me at if you have any questions!
