Hooray for the Holidays!


Hooray for the Holidays!!! 
Thank you all so much for your continued support as my third year in business comes to a close. Although I was only officially open for Q1 of this year, 

I can't thank you enough for your 142 orders! 
I look forward to re-opening in early 2013 and wish everyone a 
happy + safe holiday season.

It's a Boy!

Monroe Micah Dexheimer entered our lives on October 19th, 2012 at 12:43am... 
tipping the scales at 8 lb 6 oz, measuring in at 21 inches! 

We could not be more blessed! 

I will be enjoying the time with my little family and re-opening The Avocado Seed in early January 2013. Stay tuned !

Viva NashVegas!

Dex and I just got back from a weekend trip to Nashville, TN and we had such a blast! 
We had never been there before 
but had only heard great things 
so we thought we would take a road trip!

I thought I would post a new bag I made for our trip. 

I had made a messenger bag for a custom order recently 
and I love how it turned out so I wanted one similar for myself!

I'm a couple weeks late but 
Happy New Year! 

I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to 2012! 
My two week break was very much needed and very much enjoyed.
I spent my time off, cleaning, watching TV,
shopping, going to Wisconsin for the Christmas holiday 
and having great friends come to Chicago to ring in the New Year!

I have since been back in The Avocado Seed
and have been busy filing orders again! 
Receiving one order a day is much more peaceful than 10 a day 
since I am a one person show, 
so I am very much enjoying receiving and filling orders this January ;)
(Although I am very, very thankful for all of your Holiday orders, 
scrambling to complete or not, 
I am blessed to have you to support me
and overall it was very fun, just a bit stressful at times =))


Yesterday, while Dex was watching football all day, 
I created a couple new items with this fabric I just love... 
check them out below! 


I love this new little card holder....
I thought it would be nice to use as a debit/ID holder
for Clutch/Wristlet purses since they don't allow room for large wallets...
also great for Business Cards, Gift Cards, Credit Cards, etc!

$10 + free s/h


 
I was so excited to have figured out a new way
to make make-up bags much larger! 
The new boxy style allows many more travel items
and all bags are canvas or patterned lined.

Off to make some more!

Year End - ThAnK YoU!

If you were one of my 279 orders (and still counting!) this year, 

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! 
 
It was a great year and I can't wait to create more next year!

Lights will be off in The Avocado Seed, Dec 21 - Jan 4! 
 
Feel free to send in orders (anna@theavocadoseed.com) 
just don't expect them to be complete until after my vaycay 
(who am I kidding, I will probably still mosey my way in to the Seed 
but I am really going to try to relax on the couch these next couple weeks!)

Thank you again for orders + support.... 
have a fabulous + safe holiday season!

{Sincere Seed Apology}



I just want to apologize for my blog being so BORING! 
I have been busy focusing on orders 
and have not written a blog post 
in almost a MONTH! 

I will try to do better at posting more often. 
Sorry.  
Facebook is however always updating 
and changing with new items
 (when I have time to make new things) 
=)

Corky Corks!

Today is my best girlfriend's birthday! 
I wish I was closer (and/or in the same state at least) to celebrate with her =( 
Unfortunately, that will have to wait until I head home next or she comes to ChiTown! 

Remember the recent wedding where I had thrown the 
"Wiggin' Out Before The Wedding" Party?  Post found here! he, he) well... 
that's her! She had an amazing Las Vegas wedding
and a group of her friends (in her wine group) 
gave her an awesome wedding gift... a wine rack (what could be more fitting right?)!
A very modern, amazing dark cherry rack from Crate & Barrel.... 
I just adore it and dream of having space in a home where 
I can have one myself one day! 

I thought she would enjoy looking at (and taking bottles off of, ha!) her beautiful wine rack 
decorated with this cute new birthday gift! 
She would have gotten a bottle of my favorite kind of wine from Trader Joe's
however, I learned from her that you cannot ship wine with the Post Office 
(as she tried to send me her favorite kind at my birthday!)


Happy Birthday + Cheers, Emily Bauer!

{Scarfs}

We all know how much I love the color mustard.... 
remember that scarf I attempted to knit last winter (eek!)?! 
(Post Found Here!)

Well considering that took me about 3 months to complete... 
I thought I would attempt a different route. 
That route being via my sewing machine! 
My sewing machine is much better to me than knitting needles to say the least. 


I guess it's only fitting that my first loop scarf should be the color... 
mustard! 

{Any color available and more images coming on my FB page}

The Bag Lady!

I have had serious bag fetish ever since I was little.
I remember sewing little zippered cases in Middle School
to hold my pencils and little trinkets (which I still love)
and moving on to larger bags,
including a patch work purse,
that I really wish I had a picture of today!

I have been making some cute pouches lately
that I thought I'd share if you haven't seen them on my
Facebook Page!
