Can someone explain to me how the reserved listings work? I'm seeing a reserved listing on my Etsy page but it's for ppeac078. So will I see other people's reserved listings or did ppeace078's reserved listing get sent to me by mistake and I should let Katie know?

Sorry if this is a totally stupid question... I've never ordered from Obleek or used Etsy before! LOL Thanks for any help!

You'll see all the reserved listings. Yours will say Reserved Listing for (your etsy name).

I think she's going to regret taking such a long break. You can see a sellers previous sales, and so far today, there has been 28.

Hopefully that's just all you crazy people with your orders ready to send at 9:01 this morning and over the next few days it'll go down to a normal number per day.

I got mine in at 11:00 am right on the dot. I got my reserved listing sent to me at 4:30 and did my Commit to Buy a few hours ago. Very shortly thereafter I got my invoice, and paid it via PayPal. So I get into the cue for tomorrow's orders! Yay!

One of the bags is for my sister's birthday at the end of the month, so I really hope I get it!!

Oh man, I got another order too. Last time I got a Zoey in Urban Rhapsody (it's on her sewing projects ) and I lurvvvee the bag. I've already used it so much when I go out in the evenings or when I just want a small bag on the go and have had quite a few compliments. So I got another in Night and Day and also ordered a small lunch bag in Carnival in Bloom (as long as she gets more in)

Yipee!

I don't know if I want to admit to anything...I don't want my time stamp being examined!


ETA: And when am I *not* pot stirring. Hee hee....




Ooh, mysterious. From your first statement, you're obviously buying something. But then if you admit to pot stirring, maybe not?

YAY! I FINALLY placed my order lastnight! I was ready to order while I was at work but I couldn't decide which fabric! It took me sooo long to decide LOL!!

Got the Large Abby, Kirby and change pad.
Now Im wondering if I should have ordered the Simone as well and I was thinking it would be my "smaller" diaper bag when we go out on small trips! Ahhhhh I gotta stop!

DH thinks I'm nuts!!!

I convo'd her, is that the same as placing an order because when i checked this morning there were only 2 custom orders available!

I caved too. I've been watching this thread for months and being the indecisive gal that I am, it took me FOREVER to decide. I placed an order yesterday and now my impatient nature will kick in! Gah! I'm one bad habit after another....

I ordered a Stevie in large black and grey leaves and a Kirby in Taxi Circles.

Can't wait

If Katie is still going by time stamp, her's wouldn't be up yet. I placed mine at 11am, (same as diva) so I don't think she got to the ones placed last night.




Oops Sorry about that.

Just a little FYI - It seems a lot of people were waiting for Katie to reopen. She is busy responding to convos and orders so don't panic if you haven't heard back from her yet....she's getting there. She did sneak some time out last night to enjoy dinner and a movie for her birthday though!!

She has had to take down her bag listings for now but the smaller items are still available. It looks like we have provided her with a month worth of work in just one day!!

If you meant me, I wasn't in a panic - I was just saying that I hadn't gotten a response yet so that other people who ordered later wouldn't get worried.
Mine are for me and Xmas gifts so I've got some time.




Oh no! It wasn't in reference to anyone. Katie sent me an email last night to send a message to you ladies but I didn't get it until this morning!!

Seeing as she was closed for almost 6 weeks, is it really a surprise to get a month's worth of work all at once? Closing again is only going to create another frenzy later.

She's not closed...? She purposely removed the bags from her site but is still taking order requests (via Convo) since she is aware that there were some people waiting a few days to avoid the frenzy. They are going back up (within a few days) she just wanted an opportunity to spread orders out so they aren't all due on the same day.

I don't think she plans on closing again; she's just putting in measures to regulate the number of orders received.

So here are the photos of my Gracie and Kirby in Earth Flowers!:




Even my cat is admiring them!


Interior color (light coffee color):


Me with my Gracie. I bought leather cuffs on etsy. I can wear them on my wrist or ankles (I have one on my wrist in the photo). They are black with brown daisies, so that's just one of the reasons why I REALLY wanted the Earth Flowers fabric! I think they go so well together.

Lands, do you mean that you let her choose the fabric and/or lining?? I'm also anxious to see what she produces for you .

Now to fabulate on any potential future bags... (I'm aloud, no??):

Wouldn't these fabrics look great with jeans?:




I also LOVE this one, but I think it's too much like my Earth Flowers, so I probably wouldn't choose it:

Kinda of - i told her what colors i would like, and she is to pick for Kiara's bag and my bag. I also ordered 10 each of coffee cozy and snack bags, and just told her 5 each girl/boy (or ladies/mens).

True, my wallet is a bit fat and nothing much else fits, but I only needed my keys and cell phone to fit, and they do.

It's like a movable pocket. A pocket you can transfer from purse to purse.

Sure! I posted when I got it (and my Kirby's) but it was way back on page 24 so I'll quote myself and post them again. I was worried about the pictures being too big but now I worry they are a bit too small to do the bag justice. I think there may also be pics of mine in Obleek's Flicker account of completed projects.


Quote:

Okay, here they are!

Large Abby in Antique Damask on Black with bright green interior:


The inside:


I have it stuffed with: 1 spare change of clothes for each boy, 2 cloth diapers for each boy, a wet bag, my nursing cover, a receiving blanket, 3 size 2 & 3 size 5 disposable diapers (as backup dipes), wipes, bum cream, small bottle of Tempra, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, my wallet, my cell phone, and in the outside elastic pockets a bottle of water and ODS's sippy cup. I still have tons of room to put more if I want!

For the inside I had 3 pockets put on one side and 4 on the other...in hindsight I wish I had done 2 one one side and 3 on the other instead. I think I got the measurements mixed up a bit when figuring out how much space I'd have in each pocket. It was a bit of a tight squeeze to put the disposable dipes in the side pockets and I can't fit my wipes case. No biggie though!

Here is me wearing the stuffed bag:


Despite all the stuff I have in there it still "wears" nicely if that makes any sense. It doesn't look overstuffed.

And here are the 2 Kirby's I ordered. The one on the left (in Sophistica with red lining) is for my SIL for Christmas. The one on the right is for me to match my Abby:


(I hope the pictures are sized okay, Photobucket hates me!)

Well, I broke down and did it. Thanks a lot ladies. Thanks a lot.

Although no purses for me, I did just start up a "conversation" (i'm so new to this etsy thing) and hope to buy 6 large lunch bags (as christmas gifts) and a yoga mat holder (because my mother carries her yoga mat under her arm everywhere). Hopefully all goes well. I'm very excited.

For ladies who have a Kirby, how big is your wallet? I didn't think my wallet was that big, but once it is inside Kirby not much else is fitting in there!




I haven't used my Kirby yet, since I'm planning to use mine inside the diaper bag as a way of keeping my own things separate from the baby's. However, I do think that likely all that will fit in it is my wallet, BB, and keys. That said, I had a business card pocket added inside of mine so that I could leave my wallet out and just carry my debit card and license.

I've been stalking this thread for awhile and I can't decide whether to get a Gracie or a Zoey. For those with a Gracie, is the strap long enough that you can wear it across your body messenger-style?
