New for 2009 — Mimi Doggie T Shirts!

dog Shirt

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. My time off went by way to fast and I am already back to work making a bunch of new items for 2009.

This is a silly shot of Cessie in the new Mimi Green Doggie T. They are 100% cotton, made in Costa Rica, and hand embroidered right here in the Mimi studio.

I'd love some feedback on the T. I am thinking of dying them but am not sure of what color!

I am stuck on you… 2009 magnetic calendar

So glad that I got all my Christmas orders out in time! I felt like I was winding down from it all on Sunday. I promised myself that I wouldn't do an ounce of work, but I couldn't help it. I had to at least design some new Mimi stuff.

I don't want to spoil the surprise of the new stationary or magnets, but I will show one thing. The first 10 orders of 2009 will be receiving this awesome Mimi Green fridge calendar.

Isn't my Cessie a super beautiful calendar girl??

2009 — geez can you believe it?

Last Week for Holiday Delivery! & One New Collar

I know some of you are waiting very patiently for your order and I promise I am almost all caught up! By Friday I hope to have all the orders in the mail on the way to being under your tree for X-Mas.

And speaking of things that are brown and green, I'd like to introduce you to the new member of the Mimi Green family, "The Hunter":

(he's a little shy, you can go see more of him on my website )

This collar is made of Swiss Velvet and of course is hand embroidered. I am pretty nuts about this collar, but sadly I think I only have about a week left to promise a Christmas Delivery. After that, I think it would have to be a New Years Gift!

Good news about Rajah / Harpo the black pug — NM Pug Rescue is going to adopt him and get him the surgery he needs. After that if all goes well he will still be looking for a family of his own.  I would keep him for myself except that Etta is feeling really sad that her best friend Cessie has found a new best friend in Harpo. Her jealousy is making her loose her marbles and since we love her so much and she was here first we just can't keep the black pug ;(

Okay, back to sewing! Don't forget to get your last minute gift orders in — I promise to get it to you on time! 

Fell off the Radar…

I don't know how it happened, but I haven't written a post in a month!

So much has happened since then, so I will give you a quick photo essay to explain my absence.

First, the super awesome Paws on the Run placed a HUGE order with us! I was sewing sewing sewing and then suddenly it was Nov. 12 — time to go to Mexico!

Here we are riding horses on the beach in Cabo San Lucas.  I would have had a better time if I hadn't missed my boys so much.

We came home after a week and I had to sew like a crazy woman once again! Got the order out in the nick of time since my order board was starting to overflow!IMG_8575

Then Auggie put jelly all over his belly.  (No this isn't Dan, it is Auggie. I know it looks EXACTLY like Dan but I know my own child and this is him. It is a good thing my husband is the most handsome man in the world, eh? I am tempted to have another baby just to see if it comes out looking like a clone of myself. It would only be fair.)

Sometimes the things this guy thinks are a good idea scare me. You've seen him eat coffee grinds, eat the dirt from plants, now jelly on the belly. I have my hands full, oh boy.

In my downtime I was surfing the net and read about this poor old, fat, black pug who had been dumped on the side of the highway and had no home. He was sleeping in the shelter, which although very nice, is still a shelter and kind of scary for dogs.  Dan owed me one for a stupid thing he did (no, I don't have pictures of that;)  ) so I was able to convince him to let us bring this little guy home just until he gets adopted.

Isn't he sweet? The name the rescue gave him is Rajah, which I love, but he won't answer to it. He does, however, answer to Harpo and Pug. And trust me, I must have called him a thousand names before he descided which he liked.

He has been such an awesome guy. I am just dying to find him a new owner. 

And then there has been Christmas orders for Mimi Green. More on that tomorrow!

Lastly, I got the best Pottery Barn knock off desk I have ever seen for my studio. I was gifted some money for my birthday and I figured I owed it to myself to make my work space nicer since I practlcally live in there!

I am so loving the shelves below it. And the room! I can actually put more than just my computer on my desk now. Plus, you might have noticed that I have shelves under my table now.  We moved the sawhorses out, which were genius but served no purpose, and replaced them with shelving to hold all my webbing supplies. Another idea I stole from Pottery Barn, only their table like this costs $1000.

And Cessie loves were her bed sits now — Right in the sun!

Where did I get this desk awesomeness? You might of heard of it, it is a very exclusive little shop called Targ'et Boutique. And last week they had free shipping and 15% off.  What a very happy early birthday present to me huh!?!?
