This has been the moment we've been waiting for! =) PTL, we have nearly everything up on our new website: http://www.ajoyfulhandmaiden.com/! We didn't think it would take this long, but since we've never done anything like it before, it has been a total learning experience! Not everything is up yet (our Nearly New section, Resource Shop, Photo Gallery and such) but we are working on it, and if there is anything that you want to see from those sections, please feel free head back over to the Geocities site. We will keep up a few of those pages until everything gets transferred. For now, just continue sending e-mails to this address until we get our other e-mail addresses set up.
We also have out 2006 catalog finished, and will be sending that out once we get our catalog made up (we have the masters done, just need to get them copied). If you have ordered from us this past year, you will receive a catalog. Any extras will cost $1 per catalog. We will continue to include a free one with each order you purchase unless you specify more on your order form.

Spring Special! We are coming closer to the final stages of our website and our catalog is all finished except for our photo insert page! We haven't had the time make extra apparel for taking pictures, so if any of you have pictures of you/your daughters wearing apparel ordered from us, we'd love to see them and add them in our catalog so we can get them sent out! We couldn't wait any longer though to let you know of a couple new Tropical Breeze fabrics that we are offering. We will offer them though April 10th and then will offer them again when we get our website up, but hopefully we can get everything up by then! =) See the new TB fabrics here: http://www.geocities.com/ajoyfulhandmaiden/Specials and order like you normally would.

The other day, I received this comment, "I like how your homemade clothes are not frumpy. Seems that it can be easy to make a homemade dress look frumpy...if you know what I mean."That is one thing that we have desired not to wear is frumpy, wrinkled, faded clothing. Not only does it have an appearance of disorderliness, but it can also turn people away when it looks like you just "came from the barn." Don't get me wrong, there is a time and place to wear dirty, faded demin, as I have a denim jumper that I wear a lot for working, cleaning, etc and as far as the statement, "came from the barn" -- I love animals and old barns! But the Bible does say that all things should be done decently and in order (see 1 Cor. 14:40) and though it isn't talking about clothing, I do believe that we could definately apply this verse to what our appearance looks like!
