a few projects

though filling spicy orders is extremely fun and fulfilling :), it is also fun to "let our hair down" creatively. steph and i thrive on "creating new." it's our sanity outlet.

i personally have been working on a few of those "hair down" projects the past two weeks during my son's naps - and oh, what a rush! i LOVE spending some quality time with my simple sewing machine and iron. :)

hello, friends!

seems like i'm always mentioning that we're still here despite the obvious lack of communication. and since communication is my "department," i apologize for the serious slackishness {which isn't a word though it should be}.

here's the deal - steph and i have been extremely preoccupied with our families this past year.
and one of our stipulations in starting spicy designs was that we would never let the business take priority over our families. so we haven't. we've worked on various projects here and there, but the original gusto in which we started spicy has faded...just a bit. so we have decided to rework a few things - one of which is our website. we are letting go of our website since it has proven to do little for us by way of interest and sales.

OUR BLOG AND ETSY SHOP, HOWEVER, WILL REMAIN ACTIVE. everything else about us - love for custom orders, new designs, and bright colors - will remain the same. we will have a slue of scripture bags ready soon - just in time for the holiday season! so feel free to visit those two sites often {we promise to try harder and communicate more frequently :) }.

and as always, thanks so much for your support!

loves, al

my little "time consumer" stryker. :)

making babies and bags

well friends, it's been a L-O-N-G time. the only defense i have going for me is this: i have been making a baby. :) i am now 36 weeks along and totally exhausted. a lot of "life" has been put on hold during this amazing process, including almost all things spicy. in some ways that makes me feel sad inside, but we were not created to do it all. and so spicy has been set on the back burner...which is set to "warm" not "off." :)

as always, we have lots of completely fabulous products available in our etsy shop, so please feel free to stop by there to fulfill the need for your sister's birthday present, niece's graduation, or mother's day gift.

we are here. we still make awesome bags and such. we are just juggling a few other life happenings as well.

love always, al
