Newsletter- Exciting News for 2017 & Head Wrap tutorials!

Greetings! I have been working hard to prepare some exciting new things for Dawning Day Creations in 2017. First I want to say thank you for your patience. Some of you have been waiting for my newsletter since December 2015 when we meet at the Kwanzaa events in Chicago! Life sent me on a different path where blogging/ writing was not included! However, I'm glad to say now is the time & I hope all of you are still interested in hearing updates on our growing business!

Thank You Card

 Hey Everyone! It's officially Summer and I feel it! I've been busy, busy, busy this month with Mother's Day, Outdoor Vending Events, and preparing my Summer Clothing Line!

Peace and Much Appreciation, Lecretia

Baby Shower Purse Card

  Hey Ladies! I wanted to share with you a few pictures of a Mini Purse Card. I call it "Mini" because it's about 1 inch tinier than my original Purse Cards.   I decided to use the Purse as my gift box for a friends baby shower.  At first I was going to make a pair of baby booties and place them in the center. Then I though it would be even better to make a custom pair after babies arrival. So I put a note card inside with details on how to design shoes. (Not shown)   I loved how it turned out! I used bright, soft colors to represent her femininity and giving birth to a spring/summer...
