Today marks a very special day in our family! Max turns 4! Wow~ where does the time go! We had a great weekend! The weather was so beautiful! We had Max's birthday party Saturday with lots of our family and friends! Sunday we ran several errands and the kids went fishing with Jake while I gardened! I am so excited! I even bought a lil' garden gnome that is holding a lil' basket of daisies! So cute! We have a day filled with lots of running around and fun activities! I hope your week is off to a good start! I will try to update the shop either Thursday or Friday. Happy Birthday Max! (The picture of Max and I is an old one~ I couldn't find the one I was looking for!)

I am so excited! My clothing will be in a local fashion show! It may be low key and local but what a cool thing! I am kind of bummed a bit though because it is my sons B-day party and we have had it planned for quite some time, so I won't be able to attend! Thanks so much to Misha (from Sweet Usoapia) for coordinating it all for me~ she gathered the models and is delivering the clothing! THANK YOU!!!! :) Like I said I am soo excited, I just wish I could be there to see my clothing on the runway! I took some quick shots of the clothing, before it left my house! Gosh I have butterflies over this! (goods one though) Max turns 4 monday(where does the time go?)So we are having a wonderful weekend of celebration! I will adding a few new things to my shop and then the next update will not be til' next week!

Wow the weather has been amazing! I am still working on my spring and summer inventory! I just finished up the last of my A lines skirts and now onto the wraps skirts ect. I am stocking up this year instead of waiting until the week before a show! Lol! I tend to put things off a bit! I love spring so much! It is warm enough to wear skirts (I have one of my own on right now) and flip flops!Yay! I also love the signs of spring Tulips popping up here and there.... I purchased some hardy spring flowers the first of many! I have also been working on some new rings (the white daisy one is mine, of course! ;) . Max turns 4 on Monday the 30th and we will be celebrating this weekend, so off to plan a party! I hope you get to enjoy the sunshine too!

I am sure many of you noticed a lack of listing on Esty and my website has been on the back burner! So... you ask what have I been up to? well I decided while my hubby was on vacation and the weather was TERRIBLE... snow, rain, ect. I painted alll 3 bedrooms and not too mention switched the kids rooms~ Max now has Jada's room and so on. They love it though! They each picked out the colors and helped me redecorate :) New curtains for both ~ handmade by moi... Thomas the tank Engine for Max and a really cute floral with pom poms for Jada! Love it! I also had my hubby build me the most incredible headboard for our bed.... and the fabric was only .75 cents a yrd. on clearance can you beleive it. It is a sort of polyester type men suit print type fabric~ hard to see that in the pics! I promise shop update soon... new skirts, hair accessories, bags and rings :) Have a great day!

This happens every year, My husband takes his vacation during our childrens spring break and we have the worst weather ever! It is snowing!!!! I guess south of us it is almost a blizzard!! yuck! My tulips are sooo confused, one day we have warm weather in the 50's and he next it is 30 and snowing! It is Wisconsin! Uuggh! I am taking a vacation as well~ not much sewing or crafting going on! I just painted Our bedroom, My husband and I made a really cool headboard for our bed for under $50.00 and it looks like something you would find at Urban I love it! I am also spring cleaning ect. lots to do and it looks like I won't be going anywhere at least for today :(

I have been working on some things for my upcoming vending season. Only two months until the farmers market begins... I can not wait to get back out there, selling my goods face to face, there is nothing more rewarding! Exactly why I love what I do! I made this cute set of barrettes today and now they are here, go check them out! I will be adding more soon~ and rings too! I just downgraded my website package to save some money, so for now all of my goods are either in my Etsy shop or on consighnment. I gotta get back to crafting ;)
