What Is Your Resolution?

I can't believe that 2010 is just around the corner and so are those pesky New Year's resolutions. Why not, come up with a creative resolution this year to learn a new skill. One that can be passed down through generations. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Take a Molly O class. If you are like me, it may just be the first resolution that you have seen all the way through. What a great way to kick off the new year! And you will have something to show for it.

Creative Ladies!

I taught the Molly O Stamped Jewelry class last night to one of the nicest group of ladies. We had a great time and everyone walked away proudly with their new designs.

One of my favorite things about our classes is seeing all the amazing creativity that comes out of everyone. Most start our classes a little hesitant. We hear over and over, I'm just not that creative, or I have never done something like this before. And by the end, they are all giggling over their designs and showing them off.

But what I love even more then seeing the designs at the end of the class, is getting photos of what everyone is making. It just makes my heart sing. Kind of like a proud mama. So I just had to show you the adorable photo that came in last night even before I got home.

Laureen was the hostess for the evening and came up with this amazing design to give her mom for Christmas. She decided to combine sterling silver with copper and then use our texturizing effect on both. I think the result is chic and super sweet! What Grandma wouldn't get a little teary -eyed on Christmas morning opening this Creatively Made gift?!

Keep up the creative spirit and keep sending those pictures! I can't wait to see what everyone is working on for the gift giving season!

October Giveaway!

I haven't posted in a little while because it is the busy time of year at Molly O Designs. I don't know about anyone else, but this tends to be a stressful time of year for me. So I decided someone out in blogland needs a little pick-me-up.

We are giving away the adorable coffee cup holder and key chain shown in our previous post (actual fabric may vary) along with a $10 Starbucks gift card. We get emails all the time asking when we will have a Molly O Stylists in their area to teach Molly O classes. We are working on it, I promise! We just launched teachers in Virginia last week. So, we are working our way across the country.

But, until you have a chance to make these items yourself in a Molly O class, we thought we would give a few samples away to make sure everyone feels included.

All you have to do to register to win is leave a comment below about which Molly O class you would love to attend or your favorite class that you have already attended. If you need some ideas, just pop over to our site and click on Creatively Made. To the right you will see a list of our class categories. Look around and find something you like!

We will announce the winner next week and announce our next giveaway! And don't forget to join our newsletter for the latest Molly O news. There is a sign up box at the bottom of the blog.

Happy Fall everyone!

12 weeks until Christmas

Did I scare you? Because I am scaring myself! But with everyone on a tight holiday budget this year, I thought that we should start planning ahead!

The first thing to think about is whether you are going to buy or make most of your Christmas gifts this year. My plan is to make as much as I can for friends, neighbors, teachers and relatives. There are so many quick and easy gifts that you can make for very little money. My plan is to make a list, set aside a Saturday and just mass produce all my Creatively Made gifts.

Here is one of my favorite friend and teacher gifts! Our Coffee Holder and matching Key Chain. Just add on a coffee gift card and you have a fabulous, easy and affordable gift!

Over the next couple of weeks I will start posting photos of all my Christmas gift giving ideas. If you have been sitting on the fence about hosting a Molly O party, this is the time to schedule it. It is the perfect time to invite your friends over to start on your Christmas list! Plus, if you host the class then you get lots of freebies including your class fee, materials and discounts on anything else you buy that night.

We are also in the process of planning an all day Style session in Vegas. You will have the opportunity to take 3-4 classes plus create and design during an open session. Which means you could get your entire Christmas list taken care of in one day! If you are interested in attending, drop us a note so we can determine the level of interest.

What is Molly O Designs

Some of our customers who followed Molly O Designs as a upscale children's boutique line are a little confused about what Molly O Designs (MOD) is all about today. We have indeed changed our vision but feel that it is the most amazing change we have ever made.

Those of you that have been attending our in home classes, know all about MOD. Many of you have attended almost every class we offer and are waiting for more. But since not everyone has a MOD stylist in their area to tell them the wonders of the new Molly O, we thought we would give you a little recap.

Our mission at Molly O Designs is to offer women a trendy and social outlet for creating the hottest boutique designs in their home, with their friends, while staying on budget.

Our home based parties offer creative classes that go hand in hand with our philosophy of Creating Your Own Style. By teaching women to create jewelry, unique fashion, accessories and gifts, we are empowering women with a creative skill and sense of accomplishment.

So what kind of classes do we offer? Let me give you a little peek into all the fabulous designs you can learn to make.

You saw our adorable flower brooch in our last post. We LOVE this class because you can create so many different designs from one technique. Besides a urban chic brooch to wear on your clothing, you can also make a flower for your hair or for your little princess.

Or a trendy cocktail ring that just screams Rachel Zoe!

The possibilities are endless!

Let's move on to our Stamped Jewelry class. This is a favorite and just screams Holiday Gift!!

Another adorable class for fall is our applique class. Again, there is something for everyone! We have applique designs for women, infants, girls and boys. Even the hard to please tween/teen! The best part about this class is that there is no sewing machine required!

There are so many more amazing classes! But I don't want to overwhelm you. Click over to to view our full list of classes and to read the details on how to book your own class!

If you are in Las Vegas, our calendar is filling up quickly for fall. So make sure to contact us this week if you would like to book one of our Stylists to teach a class with your friends.

In a few weeks we will be opening a new location in Virginia! More on specific territory information coming soon.

If you are interested in starting one of our beta locations and would like to become a Molly O Stylist, contact us at

Yes, I'm on a Rachel Zoe kick. Love that show. And I secretly dream of having her dress me and give me that look before she says.................."ba-na-nas!" For those of you that don't watch RZ, that means that you look amazing.

So when this little design came together, the first words out of my mouth were bananas! LOVE, love, love this top. Love the flower brooch and the sprinkle of swarovski crystals.

The absolutel best part about this top is that it was created as one of our Molly O classes! We are on a flower kick for fall. These fabulous little accessories are being worn in the hair, on shirts, as shoe embellishments and even as jewelry. And they are so much fun to make!!

I promise that you will have a flower addiction by the end of the class too! There are a thousand different ways to design these flowers. Women and girls of all ages are sporting our flowers. We will have more pictures over the next couple of days that will give you a sneak peek into our Fabulous Flowers class.

If you can't wait, then drop us a line and book your party so you can learn to make them too!

It's all about the shoes ladies..............

If you have been to one of our Molly O Designs classes, then you know that our stylists are big on empowering women to bust out of "mommy mode" when it comes to your appreance.

In the coming weeks, we will start a serious of quick tips of how to break out of your mommy style and create a fabulous new look on a budget. You don't have to break the bank or spend hours getting ready. It's the little things that add up.

One of my favorite "go to" items when I need a little boost is a funky and fabulous pair of shoes! Now, here is the Molly O Style rule....... DO NOT pair funky/colorful/crazy/zany shoes with other prints, accessories and all over stuff going on in your outfit.

Take a simple white button down shirt, a great pair of jeans and throw on a pair of shoes like this.

The shoes will pop and I promise that you will have other mommies checking out your new style. I know, I know a few of you are looking at these shoes and thinking, NO WAY! But I promise under a long pair of dark denim jeans they are fabulous. And the best part? They were only $10!!! They just got a lot cuter, didn't they?

If this is too much of stretch for you, then just start off with a great pair of red flats for fall. Pair them with a pair of black pants, a great flitted tshirt and a denim jacket. Add on one of our new Molly O flower brooches to the jacket or your hair and you are ready for anything.

Again, keep it simple on top and let your shoes do the walking.

Molly O Customers Are the Best!

Can I just brag for a minute? Seriously, I love it when a customer comes back to show me what they are up to after taking one of our classes. I feel like a proud momma!

Ellen came up with this stunning wedding shower gift. Can you imagine opening this at your wedding shower? I don't think I would ever take it off. She included the bride and groom's name, their wedding date and even included charms that matched their wedding colors. Ahhhhh.

And if that wasn't enough, then she made necklaces for all the little boys that were coming to her son's birthday party! Who said our classes were just for girls! The little boys wearing these necklaces are probably the "big man" on the playground even as I type. So cute and hip!

Thanks for sharing Ellen. I'm glowing with pride! Keep sending pictures of your Creatively Made projects. I would love to share them here!

A Little Something for Mom and Baby

So often when you go to a baby shower, all the gifts revolve around the baby. But what about the mom? Sometimes she needs to be spoiled too. After all, she is doing all the work.

What better way to celebrate a new baby then to celebrate the mommy as well. We put together a grouping of classes that create the cutest baby gift ever! You can take one class or take them all.

So here is a list of classes that were featured in this sweet gift.

Boutique Baby Burp Cloths
I think moms should get to carry fashion forward burp cloths if they are going to be slung on their shoulder for the first 6 months.

Baby Pouch
Throw in a few diapers and a pack of wipes and you are ready to run. I have to admit that I still use mine with my older kids. Sometimes it is an extra pair of pants/undies for my 3 y.o. or a few little snacks for the older kids. It is more of an everything pouch.

Coffee Cup Cozy
You know every mother is sleep deprieved. So we made her coffee cup fashion fabulous with our reusable coffee sleeves. Of course it has to match all the baby accessories so everyone knows she is a Sassy Mom!

Couture Key Chain
If you don't have one of these key chains, they are a must for any mom carrying a baby, diaper bag, grocery bags and anything else she can hold onto. They are adorable because you can make them to match anything. But they also slip on your wrist so you don't have to dig for your keys! For our mom to be, we added a Starbucks keychain gift card to the link. That way she can grab her coffee on us!

So a little something for Mom and Baby. Can you think of a better gift?! Oh and did I mention that you can do it on a budget? That is the best part of our classes. You create fabulous boutique gifts without breaking the bank. And if you don't have anyone to give them to, then just make them for yourself! Afterall, you deserve it.

The neighborhood cutie

I was trying to hold off on posting pictures of our new fall classes until everything was ready to be released. But seriously, I saw this face on my screen and just couldn't wait to show everyone.

He is the neighborhood cutie patootie and his poor mom had to drag him over to the photoshoot as soon as he woke up from his nap. And all of us moms know what 2 1/2 year olds are like when they get up from a nap.

But this little guy just stuck his little hand in his pocket, gave me a grin and approximately 3 minutes later the photoshoot was over.

I guess I should also point out his cute shirt which is one of our new Molly O Fall classes (more to come in the next week!). But seriously, look at that face! I would adopt him but I don't think his mom would appreciate that very much. In fact, we have already married him off to my youngest so I guess that would be a little weird if he came to live with us now. But just think how cute my grandkids will be one day!

Last Call for the Molly O Clothing Line

I'm on a mission to clear out the clutter. I feel the need for peace, tranquility and organization.

One of my major sources of irritation is the mountain of boxes with the remainder of my Molly O children's clothing line. If you remember, I made the decision to discontinue our clothing line due to the CPSIA 2008 that went into effect. Long story short, I need to sell what is left to get it out of my studio! If I don't sell it, then I will feel stressed and anxious at the lack of organization and feng shui. So help a momma out and take a peek at what I have left.

Just for Mom!

Running Molly O Designs leaves me very little time to do things for myself. While my customers are sporting the hottest/latest/greatest designs, it is difficult to find time to make something for myself.

So I decided to take a few minutes this morning to make myself a present. Afterall, don't all of us moms deserve to give ourselves a present every once in awhile? I say, absolutely!

One of my favorite classes right now is our Molly O Stamped Jewelry class. I love it because once you get the hang of stamping, you can stamp out one of these beauties in a few minutes. And let me tell you that this skill comes in very handy when you are about to run out the door for a friend's birthday party :)

So here is what I came up with for myself. I wanted something a little different from the basic circle charms. Using a rounded square sterling silver charm, I stamped all three of my monkie's nicknames. Then on the skinny sterling rectangle I added on their birthstones with swarovski crystals.

I love how it turned out and I feel very chic with it on. Who knew just a necklace could make you feel sassy and chic! As I like to say, Sassy Made Simple!

My Peeps

Let me start this post by professing that I have zero ability or talent when it comes to art. I mean it, I can't draw, paint, sculpt, make playdough figures, none of it. My son often breaks down in tears when he asks me to draw something and it looks like a 2 y.o. did it.

So, when I started out on this little project I was pretty sure the end result was going to be something from night of the living dead. But, if I do say so myself (patting myself on the back in surprise) they are pretty darn cute. Or at least my kids want to play with them and aren't having nightmares from looking at them.

First, is a little necklace for my 3 y.o. She is a tomboy one minute and pretty princess they next. But she loves this necklace!

I know it isn't perfect, but hey it was my first attempt and if you squint your eyes and stand back 20 feet you'll never notice.

So then I decided that we needed an entire posse. And what is a posse of peeps without a little diversity. Since our family knows a little something about that, I started to mix a variety of tones for skin and hair.

Notice the necklace doll has a loop to string a satin necklace or ribbon through. The rest I left as little dolls because my kids couldn't wait to play with them.

And of course, we had to throw in a few boys. And if one just happens to look a little like my sweet husband it is probably just a coincidence.

Or maybe not.................hehe

Next up is making a little house for them all to live in. And don't worry, I will be posting all the instructions on how to make these sweet little peeps as soon as I can figure out how to paint and take pictures at the same time.

I love mom photographers!

Nothing makes me smile more (besides my kids and hubby) then pictures of kids wearing a Molly O creation! Those emails just make my day, especially when the photographer is the mom of said cutie patootie.

Check out these fun pictures that were sent my way.

Don't you just want to squeeze her?! She is too cute for words.

And then she goes and does this. I LOVE it when my kids pick dandelions for me. They are still at the age where they think they are really flowers.

I bet Mom April loved her flowers as much as I loved getting the photos!

Keep your eyes open for our Molly O class on making this sweet peasant top. We will be offering short and long sleeve versions. This is a GREAT beginner sewing class. Even if you have never touched a sewing machine, I promise you can make this top.

Stay tuned.......

Back in the Blogging Saddle

I feel like I fell off the blogging horse. Business is booming at Molly O Designs and it is taking me a little while to get into my marketing groove. So much to do, so little time. But I have a plan, and I swear I am going to stick to it.

I promise not to leave you hanging again. My "goal" is to write my blog posts at the beginning of the week and have them ready to roll each morning. Sounds easy enough. So, I start to brainstorm topics so that I could stay ontop of this task. Hmmmm.....{birds chirping}. Yeah, I got nothing.

Then I remembered all the cool stuff that has been arriving at our studio! Fun. Anyone want to run their fingers through 10,000 crystals?! I'm telling you, it is fabulous. I was a little tempted to scatter them and pretend to be a Victoria Secret Angel on their famous runway, but quickly realized that they fact that I don't weigh 98 lbs. would probably cause all the crystals to crush into tiny pieces of dust.

See how quicly I get off topic?! O-kay, look at some of our new crystal colors. Perfect for your Bling Flip Flops!

This is called Silk. I love this color. Believe it or not it looks fabulous on brown and black flip flops.

And this is Black Diamond. It has a steel grey tone when you put them on black flip flops. It is gorgeous and unique.

It is not too late to book a Bling Flip Flop party! The warm weather is here to stay for a while. Get a pedicure and make a pair of these sassy shoes for summer.

Don't forget the card!

So, if yesterday's post inspired you to take a class and make a special Mother's Day gift for someone, then we have the cutest card to go along with it!

Brandi Cameron of designed a fabulous gift enclosure card using our Creatively Made slogan. I seriously love Brandi. She totally gets my vision for Molly O Designs. And trust me, my visions are often about as clear as mud to other people. But they make perfect sense to me! LOL.

This little card let's everyone know, that their item is Creatively Made, not homemade. And, that it was made by you! Trust me, when you tell people that you made a gift for mom this year, they will hide their store bought gifts in shame. Especially when the gift is from a Molly O class.

If you need a Molly O gift card to put with a gift you have already made, let me know and I will be happy to get some to you asap! You can email me at

Creatively Made Mother's Day

Now I'm not naming names, or pointing fingers, but there was a Mother's Day not too long ago where a certain husband worked all day and did not get a gift for the mother of his children. Did I mention those 3 children were all born in 4 years time and that she had been changing diapers for 7 years straight? All I have to say is that it is a good thing he is such a nice guy and a good dad, not that I know him or anything like that.

But I've decided that there is nothing wrong with celebrating yourself as a mother. If that means buying yourself a gift in appreciation of all you do for your family, then go for it! Is there anyone more deserving of a gift then a mother? I think mother's should be able to buy themselves a gift on a daily basis.

So in that spirit I thought I would post a few gift ideas that you can either make for yourself or for another mother in your life.

I just made this necklace for a new mom to be who is having a baby girl. She is due in a week and I can't wait to give this to her! Hopefully she isn't reading this, but if she is, SURPRISE! Hope you like your gift! LOL. I'm really bad at keeping secrets.

This necklace is from our Stamped Jewelry Class. You can create necklaces, bracelets, key chains, etc. The options are endless. You can either add the names of your children or words of inspiration. Use your imagination to create something special. Add on a charm or birthstone dangle and you have the perfect gift!

If you want to make yourself or another mom feel fabulous, then you can always give her a little bling. These crystal flip flops are the hit of the season. This party is so much fun. And who doesn't love to wear a little bling?! Add a little or a lot. It is up to you.

The best part of both of these classes is how good you feel when you are finished. You can let your creativity flow while burning off some stress. In the end you will have a gift for yourself or for someone special.

I love!

Seriously, this is by far my new favorite invitation web site. It is so chic and easy to use. The perfect tool for all our creative ladies.

What I love is that although they have hundreds of trendy invitation designs that are ready to be emailed to your friends with just a few clicks, you can also design your own. And I'm not talking about cheesy clip art photos and unattractive colors. I mean, design something that is personal and all about your event. Check out the invite I just created for one of our classes.

CLICK HERE to see the invite and web page.

And that isn't all, there are so many fun little add-ons. Like publishing your invite to twitter or facebook, sending it over to your blog (uhh hum) and it even creates a personal event website. You can send your invitation via email or even as a text to all your friend's phone.

Now, I'm not going to say anything bad about that "other" online invitation website. Because honestly, I'm impressed with their branding. Everyone knows "that" site. Job well done marketing department. But I guarantee once you use you will NEVER go back.

Go ahead and create an invitation, you know you want to. And feel free to invite me. Or better yet, throw a Molly O party and then I will be sure to show up!

Just the Girls

I love a girls night out! Especially when it involves friends, wine, chatting and of course a creative energy.

We held a focus group class this week to get feedback on the new Molly O look, classes, concepts and vision. I can't tell you how much I adore and appreciate the ladies that attended. I limited the attendance to 6 so we could focus on what needed to be accomplished. You wouldn't believe the great advice and suggestions that I got from these women! I've been frantically working every since trying to implement the improvements that resulted from our class. Often times, I get so caught up in the my ideas that I forget that not everyone thinks the same way that I do. I got the perfect combination of positive feedback and constructive criticism.

It was so great to watch as everyone started to have those "that's how you do that!" moments. What fun to teach my friends the secrets and tips that I have learned along the way. My friend Julie even went home at 10 p.m. and made more bows! She has 4 girls at home, so she needed to get started. LOL. I love it, and can't wait to see her girls in all their bow glory.

Our next focus group will be in 2 weeks! This week we focused on our basic bow class. Next up is our flip flop class. Perfect timing for this beautiful weather we are having in Vegas. I will be limiting the class to 6 people again. So drop me a note if you want to attend.

It's all about the bling........

I know, I know, I need to rein it in when it comes to bling. But how can you not love things adorned in Swarovski crystals?! I love to sprinkle them on everything from my girl's bows to the throw pillows in my newly decorated living room (pictures to come!).

So, when I saw some cute crystal converse shoes in my local children's boutique, I just couldn't resist blinging out my new Ed Hardy sneaks. O-kay, they look a little over the top. But I swear that if you put them on with some cute jeans and a solid black or white top, you have a really cute outfit! That is the key to bling. Keep it to one item and one item only. Don't wear a bling tshirt, with bling jeans with bling shoes. Then you just look like you have been living in Vegas too long.

Of course I had to make a pair for my girls. This time I added in some black polka dots using jet black crystals and made the matching shoe laces. We get stopped every where we go when they are sporting their bling high tops. I think these would be adorable for pageants as well.

The best part about these shoes is the price! They retail for $110 at my local boutique. You can make them for half the price at a Molly O class. Our Molly O Stylists can teach you all the tricks and techniques for making these fabulous shoes. Book your class today!

National Autism Day

Today is National Autism Day. It is amazing to me that autism was almost unheard of just 10 years ago except for people's narrow perception from the movie Rain Man. And now, we have a day and month dedicated to awareness.

But I still think that many people don't truly understand what autism is. Or for that matter what the children look like that are diagnosed with this disease. Could you pick out a child in the grocery store that has autism? How many times have you looked a mother because her child was screaming or throwing a tantrum in the store? I have been on both ends. From thinking that a mother needs to get her child under control, to later being glared at and even asked to leave church because my child could not keep it together. Trust me, you feel the need to run away and punch that person in the face all at once. And then head straight to confession. LOL.

Let me show you what Autism looks like. Meet my sweet son Clay (right) and his friend JC (left). Are they the cutest little 5 y.o. boys you have ever seen?! Both were diagnosed with Autism around the age of 3. They have been in school together since that time and have both grown by leaps and bounds. When they are together, they make you laugh until you cry.

They both have an obsession with legos and Star Wars. Put a new lego catalog in front of them that features star wars sets, and they are in heaven. Where speech use to elude them just a few short years ago, and eye contact was non-existant now comes excited chatter and sparkling eyes describing each star wars character and whether they are on the good side or dark side.

In the fall they will both be transitioning into a mainstream kindergarten class. But this new achievement did not come easily. You may remember that I shared my story of Clay's diagnosis last year during Autism Awareness Month. It feels like a million years ago that he was diagnosed and yet it has flown by. I wish now I had kept track of the countless hours spent doing therapy with him at him, taking him to speech therapy, occupational therapy, etc. But I guess the journey isn't as important as the destination.

Our destination often changes and new goals are set. But we are getting there! My neighbor said to me recently, "are you sure the doctor gave him the right diagnosis?" Yes, I'm sure. But to see him today he is a completely different kid. We still have some hiccups. And will probably continue to face new challenges. But thanks to following my mother's instinct and screaming my head off at our peditrician (it went a little something like this, "Something is not right with my baby, I just know it! He is 2 and he can't talk! I scream his name and he doesn't hear me" Her response, "my brother didn't talk until he was 4, let's wait a year." Mommy instinct kicks into high gear, "NO, YOU WILL GET ON THE PHONE RIGHT NOW AND FIND SOMEONE THAT CAN TEST HIM AND FIND OUT WHAT IS WRONG.") We never went back to that pediatrician. Though my husband gets to see her at work. Oops. Sorry honey. But sometimes the momma lion just has to take care of business.

Point being, mommy instinct and early intervention are key to this epidemic. The earlier you find out (even if you don't want to know) the sooner you can start helping and pull these kids out of their secret world and into ours. And I'm so happy we were able to do that for Clay. I just can't imagine my world without him.

Time to Flip for Summer!

I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in Vegas it is starting to feel like spring/summer. If the winds would just die down a little we would have a few gorgeous days. I even have my first sunburn of the season to prove it. Time to break out the sunscreen!

Along with warm weather comes fun summer shoes. But in this economy, who has the money to spend big money on everyday shoes. We have the perfect solution! Our adorable boutique flips flops are perfect for anyone that can walk with flip flops on their feet. I say that because my 3 year old is still trying to master that task.

We have designs and ribbon combinations for little girls, tweens and even trendy moms. And I can't say enough about how comfy these flip flops are. I searched high and low to find a manufacturer that didn't cause blisters or sore toes. Isn't that the worst?!

These shoes are so fun to make. Get the girls together and we will teach you how. I would also suggest a pedicure, but considering I don't really like feet you are on your own for that one!

If you are in the Las Vegas area and are interested in hosting a party, email us at

If you are outside of Las Vegas you can contact us to find out when a Molly O Designs franchise will be opening near you!

Announcing our first Molly O class!

We are so excited to finally kick off our first class for 2009. There will be many more coming in the next couple of weeks. But we thought we would start off with our most popular request.

Over the years, we have sold thousands of boutique bows. And often our customers would say "I wish I knew how to make bows." So what better way to start off our new party adventure then to offer our "Basics of Bows" class.

You will learn everything you need to know to make 6 different styles of boutique bows and hair accessories. We have tried many different methods, materials, glues, etc. over the years and have come up with our favorite finds in all areas of bowmaking. And now we are passing it onto all of you! The class will include all the materials you need to make each bow. You will also have the opportunity to purchase all our favorite tools, ribbon, hair clips, glue, etc. to take home with you. We also have adorable boutique headbands and beanie hats available to display your new creations!

If you live in the Las Vegas area and are interested in hosting a Molly O class at your house, drop us an email at We will help you choose a class and date so you can host a fun and creative girls night out!
