My First Blog!

Well it was my New Years resolution to start Blogging, so here I am! My name is Melissa, I am the designer and creator behind Gumdrop*Shop, a boutique custom clothing company for little girls. Inspired to begin designing after the birth of my twin girls I dove head into the ebay boutique world. I am a proud member of Poppyst boutique.

A little about me

I have been married for 8 years this March, to my best friend. WE have four beautiful children two boys 7 and 5, and twin girls 2 1/2(my models).

I began sewing in 4-H when I was 10. My mom was a wonderful seamstress and a great teacher. In Highschool I designed my own formal gowns, and my mom made them for me- since I was to busy, lol.

My Favorite Items of the week

I just love this little bracelet and the matching wallet. It is simple sweet and slightly tough! Its made by the same company that makes all of the wonderful girly shoes----Bear Feet!

I am anxiously awaiting my newest fabric- Ginger Blossom. Ginger Blossom fabric is designed by a fellow ebayer- Sandi Henderson of PortabelloPixie. The fabric is due to arrive this Spring. The colors and designs of each fabric in the line are delicious, I will feel slightly sad cutting into them.

Poppyst and Guest will be launching for Spring this Thursday on ebay,come and take a look at the beautiful creations!
