Can I get a woo hoo for Darbalou?!

After much procrastination (followed by a  little diligence) I finally got all of the Darbalou products up on Etsy! EVERYTHING is now online, (although there are still a few additional photos to add to the most of the capes)

One of the best parts about editing the photos from our "photo-shoot" was looking at all of the expressions my niece had from photo to photo.

She really hammed it up for us that day. I wish Etsy had a place for captions under their photos. She really had some good ones. She is just so dang cute!

"Now am I smiling big enough?"

"This is my impression of a Hobbit climbing the steps into Mordor."

 "Don't f* with me Aunt Darby!"

"Hey-hey man, its all good!"
I can't wait to have a little photo-shoot with her again. She was such a trooper. We took over 400 photos on Lou's iPhone, (great quality right?) I wish I had as much energy. After we had gone through all of the costumes, she asked to start all over again after dinner. Ha!

It feels great to be able to say that I have my stuff online now, and it will feel even better when I get my first non-friend-non-family member sale, (although I am definetly not complaining about the support). There are a few private orders in the works now, but I am going to start working on new products soon! I was thinking a wrap-around princess dress with bell sleeves and faux lacing? Do you think there will be any takers out there?


  1. WOO HOO!! Congratulations on your new venture. Just remember that it can take a while to get your name out there and get people to notice, so don't give up. You've got a great idea and such fun items that children will love. Wishing you great success!!

    1. Thanks so much RhondaBuss! I really appreciate your positive feedback. I showed your comment to my husband (Darbalou is also his endeavor) and he was so excited to hear see your WOO HOO!
      PS I love your Rhonda's Creative Life blog...I must have spent an hour just looking at the vintage fashion images you uploaded today. Thank you for sharing!
