A Big Hearty Hello for 2015

It's been a super long time since I've made an effort to post to my blog...and I can make a load of excuses.  But the reality of it has been, that I had been focused on selling the house that I had been remodeling for over 8 years and moved from the Midwest back to California to be closer to my elderly mom.

2013 was the year of a new job making new friends and learning about lots of data.  You see by day, I am an IT Geek and by night I usually fill my soul with sewing machine vibrations and create lots of wonderful goodies! <3  And again, I was MIA from the blog, for the year ... probably just being a geek.

I did make these wonderful pillow covers that fit 18" x 18" pillow forms!  Won't you share some love for this gorgeous beauty?


2014 was a tough transition, but now starting afresh in 2015 with Joy and Peace and Determination to make this one of the best years yet!

The Etsy shop (http://themillershouse.etsy.com) is back up and I've relisted some of the items in inventory and creating amazing new products!  This year, we will be focusing on essential oils, tote cases and organizers.  We have a large community of oilers that we will be making products for.  Also, the hooping community will be excited to see a special category in my shop for their hooping covers, bags, and supplies!

I'm very much excited to start up again and welcome your support!  Please share us once again with your friends and family.  We will be promoting our products with referral coupons starting in February!  For each custom referral coupon that is redeemed, you may be eligible to receive free gifts from TheMillersHouse!  How cool is that!?

Thank you so much for your patience, and look forward to a fantastic 2015 and making great new friends this year!

New Creations

I have been soo busy these past few months and have neglected getting anything new up on the blog.  Forgiveness is in order!  And yes, you will Love the new items that I have been working on.  

Here is a newly designed plastic bag holder for every kitchen needs one.  These were crafted with a Victorian / Steampunk style lace ribbon and red buttons.  What do you think?

Now the next item recently sold, but it was one of my favorite vendor aprons with the look and feel of Paris.  You could look at this and escape to the Eiffel Tower or walk the streets of Paris and see the wonderful artists portraying this favorite city.  Ooh La La!

Customers are always asking for new gift tags that they could include with their orders.  I just got done creating these lovely gel pen tags with brilliant glitter red hearts!  These are just too adorable to pass up!  Who's going to be the lucky shopper?  Could it be you?

Meet Stephanie of OldSoulStyle ~

I am Stephanie and I make a variety of paper creations and jewelry. I started making and creating at a very young age because as a child I refused to just sit around and play with toys. I asked for craft kits for every special occasion. At age thirteen, I received a scrapbook kit and fell in love! I have been making paper crafts ever since and I really enjoy making cards and tags.

I started making jewelry with my Mom a couple of years ago
and that became a component of my shop.

Inspired by so many things and my inspirations
are constantly changing.

I love anything that is or appears to be vintage or old.

I also am drawn to birds, flowers, and unique patterns.

Most recently, I began making miniature envelopes as a way to recycle my scrap paper and they became a surprise success in my shop. As a result, I am now selling sets of envelopes in various themes and colors.

Hymn Heart Box

Let's take some home decor high gloss paint and transform these lovely textured heart boxes into magnificent beauty! Top glossed over with 1918 Hymn music sheet. Words of blessing from the "Lord, I Hear Showers Of Blessing" by Elizabeth Codner. If only it were a music box, the tune would be so lovely and full of blessings for those who open the heart box.

Inside the box is lined with red felt and many little small keepsakes can be stored safely away.

Item can be found at TheMillersHouse on Etsy.
