Movin' on Up..


Hello friends!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am aiming to create a website that will house all things ConstantlyAlice.  To that end, I am moving my blog to Wordpress (which is the platform I believe I will be using to create my new site.)  You can continue to follow along here.

This page will remain active until I've sorted everything out and moved it all over..I can't wait to share all the new and exciting changes with you all!  Thanks for being loyal ConstantlyAlice followers <3

Create 365 - Faux Fox Stole

This little fella is kind of free form.  I created him without a pattern and just added and subtracted stitches as I went.  My current project it teaching myself to create a website, which may take a bit of time, so you'll notice a temporary slow down in posts ;)  I'll keep you all updated!

Whistle While You Work!

ConstantlyAlice gives me a great sense of joy and accomplishment.  Over the last year or so since I started selling on ConstantlyAlice, I've developed a blog, created projects and giveaways, started making handcrafted jewelry and met some wonderful, WONDERFUL people (that's you!!)

However, I have never really done any of it with a plan in mind.  I just put things out there as I think of them, add stuff to the site when I have a moment away from my full time job and family and occasionally share a thought, passion or two when the spirit moves me.


I've decided to change that a bit and make a more serious commitment to really developing ConstantlyAlice into a thriving business.  I want to provide you, as my customers, community and friends, with not just a good product, but a great one.

What does that mean?

Well, for starters, I am working on creating a ConstantlyAlice website.  It will be a one stop shop for everything ConstantlyAlice.  Blog, merchandise, vintage, tutorials and my soon to be developed YouTube Channel.

I am also expanding what I offer.  As you know, I have recently added the Avon brand to my growing list of products.  Some other things you can expect, in addition to really great vintage finds and handcrafted jewelry, will be knitting and crochet patterns, ConstantlyAlice Designs (a line of vintage inspired clothing and accessories) and a line of handbags and wallets.

Additionally, you can expect a lookbook/magazine.  This project is still in the works, but I hope to make it either a quarterly or seasonal offering.

You'll notice these changes gradually, and everything else will be business as usual (I won't be closing up shop while I go through this process!)  Keep an eye out for the grand unveiling of the site, lots of giveaways and contests, some discount coupons and sales as we grow :)

Thanks so much for being loyal customers and followers of ConstantlyAlice <3

Create 365 - Rose Colored Glasses

I've kind of fallen in love with the recent trend of floral embellished glasses, but rather than spring for a new pair I decided to upcycle a pair I already owned.  A few rose buttons, some swarovski crystals and VOILA!

Create 365 - Butterfly Cuff Bracelet

I created this from scraps of ribbon and lace, a vintage shoe clip and a vintage butterfly brooch.  It closes with two white buttons.

Avon Calling!

One of my goals for ConstantlyAlice this year was to build it into a "lifestyle" that incorporated all of my passions, instead of just being about selling in my etsy shop.  I want to share a way of life, not just a brand.

So, along those lines, in addition to my posts on creating, vintage and literature, I will be adding one of my favorite product lines to my offerings..I'm now an Avon lady ;)

Avon is one of my favorite brands, mostly because of the vintage appeal, but also because they provide excellent quality items at great prices.

My plan is to add posts to the blog that review Avon products, give step by step tutorials on creating different looks (with a focus on vintage style) and eventually to create a youtube channel where I can share videos of how to use different products with you.

I'm so excited to be sharing this new addition to ConstantlyAlice with you!  You can find the ConstantlyAlice Avon shop here.  Stay tuned for my first product giveaway!

Hugs and Smooches,
