Princess Crown: Queenie
Queenie was named because I thought this design was beautiful and I wanted to re-appropriate my most hated childhood nickname. I did not mind when my brothers called me 'bossy'. I KNEW I was bossy. But when they started calling me Queenie, that was trouble because it bugged me. But in reality, it would be nice to go back to those carefree days when that was my only issue in life.
Queenie is a super popular Petal Drops design. She is made with our exclusive hand cut 'Caramel Ombre' rainbow cake. That's right, nobody else has this recipe. She is ridiculously cute. Thank you Westport model!!!
Princess Crown: Snowie
This one was because Queenie needed a friend and the two actually got designed together in the late summer early fall of 2022 but it took a while to figure out how they were going to be implemented. This one is fun because it requires extra help to get the blue glow in the blacklight spots on. Usually I will have the mom help if that is an option. Thank you my model friend from our former school, it was so great to catch up with you again after all these years!
Unicorn Princess: Brierly
This one was created because Brindle our unicorn was so popular that I was kind of getting sick of always doing it and not having any other unicorn choices. I thought it would be fun to put it on a crown backing and see what happened. Brierly seems now to be the new favorite unicorn outpacing Brindle by a lot! She is so fun to do, and it is nice to have choices now. (And BOY do we have choices! So many new ones coming out for the summer of 2024 I do NOT know all their names yet, though I have named them all! (There are 9 now????))
Princess Crown: Rosie
Princess crown rose queen was the first princess crown I ever actually did. We had Queenie and Snowie on our boards ready to go but I knew I had extra crowns so I upgraded this rose design on the fly. It was so very enjoyable to do and it turned out pretty well. Weirdly I never did a card for it so it did not ever get offered again. We will try to remedy that because it's pretty cute.
Princess Crown: Dana
This was an early adoption to the princess crown family. Dana was a fun butterfly and super cute with the gold crown and kids really enjoyed it a lot.
We have adjusted our crowns higher up the bridge of the nose because if it is down too low the kids experience irritation when they talk or eat. For a while we used to bend up the tips but eventually applied pearls or diamonds to the point as well as moving them higher up the forehead.
