Annoucements & a Winner!



A few exciting changes are coming to the shops & I am SO happy to tell you about them!  If you know me, you know that by nature I am not a business lady.  I don't have a "big picture" type of mind...I am ALL over the details, but often forget what the details are working toward, ect...all I can say is, good thing I have my hubby to keep me in line ;)  Somehow it always works out.  But anyway, not being the greatest "big idea" planner, I really didn't start my businesses out with any foresight or goals in mind besides just getting to do something I enjoy.  While, I think that's a VERY important goal to have in any job, there are some other goals & things to think out, well that I just didn't. haha! Live & Learn.  With that said, for a while now, I have really wanted my shops to come under one umbrella.  I feel that in design & name they have always been really separate, yet in my heart & in their purpose they are so alike.  That said, I enlisted this incredibly talented lady, Savannah of Maie Dae Designs to help me make the brands more unified & cohesive.  


And I think we have done just that!  Soooo are you ready for this?


Ashley Carter Designs & My Little Sunshine Fabric 


are now:  


my little sunshine handmade
 {and}
my little sunshine : a fabric shop




"My Little Sunshine" is now the umbrella for both my shops & I couldn't be more pleased with the idea of coming under the same name, which is a dear one to me, inspired by my creative grandmother, Sunshine AND can you get over the ridiculously cute graphics for the shops?  no? me either!

I'm such a details person in my business, without looking & planning ahead, too! Ugh. Was just talking to a friend last night about this- I love the sewing & designing part, but am pretty terrible at everything else!

Love the new banners!

You're so cute! I love the no losers here coupon code.

On another note, I just met someone who works at Barksdale who went to intelligence training with Ben. Her name is Sarah, but I'm not 100% sure of her last name. She's married to a B-52 pilot (well, he's going to be...he's in class with Tobin). :) Thought that was neat. I guess maybe the world of Air Force officers isn't very big!
