The kids and I were off to register them for school yesterday! Max starts kindergarten! :( Where does the time go??? Jada will be in 3rd grade! They were very excited to get pictures taken & find out who their teachers are! Max got to meet his yesterday and she assured him school will be lots of fun! He keeps telling me he thinks school is *boring*! ;) I think he would prefer to go to the shop with me everyday.. he is a Mama's boy for sure!

I just bought some great fallish fabric... new wrap skirts coming soon in curdoroy! I am so excited... I finally found the right weight and prints! I have a bit of a cold! Uuggh & my camera is not working well.. so it may be a bit before I post again!

Have a great weekend!

Some important information for you......

I feel it is time to let you all in on some changes that I will be making. A lot of people thought I was closing up shop!(No. not yet! J/K) However I have come to the realization that I can't do everything for everyone! I am a one gal show.. I am a designer,buyer,seamstress & shop owner(plus worker) and Mother of two! I have two dogs a house and a husband! That is ALOT! So with that being said.. there is a reason why my has nothing posted on it.. I just can't keep up with it!

So here it goes! I will only be selling my things locally at my shop & markets and on ETSY! I really just can't be emialing people pics and holding things.I will try to post about every two weeks new skirts & bags, and of course hair accessories every now and then! I do my best to keep everyone happy and what a honor it is to be selling to the world, but my priority is keeping my store front stocked and full!

If you have any questions please email me. I am sorry for this but it just will make my life easier! Etsy is a free site you just need an email address to sign up for it.

I hope you have a beautiful day! I am off to clean, the pool & afternoon sewing! In that order! ;)

A day at Bay Beach!

I love Bay Beach.. We moved to NorthEast Wisconsin about 7 years ago and Bay Beach has become a annual summer destination! I just can't say enough... it is perfect for kids, families and soooo affordable. We spent $15.00 on rides, sno cones & icecream! How can you go wrong! Most of the rides are only .25 cents! We were able to go on two of each! The kids always love it! In the beginning of the summer I had made a list of all the things I wanted to do with the kids this summer & I think we accomplished it accept The Milwaukee zoo.. but we may have to settle for The Vilas zoo in Madison which is free, and has a super new kids play area!

I have to Thank everyone who came out to the market yesterday! Another great day.. I met some nice customers from New York & Seattle.. not too mention local folks are always so nice, it makes me feel very lucky to be able to do what I do! Thank you again! See you in two weeks!(I have a wedding in Madison next Saturday)

Here are some pics from today! I am off to help Jake with dinner & I have to get some sewing done this week! :)

Back to school ....

Totes that is! I just made up some great new heavy duty totes for fall! Great for school or like me the Mom who needs a bag to put just about anything in! These are at the shop & I am hoping to have a few for the Saturday market.

I also just finished up a few more of my pleated purses! I love this new design and this batch has two cute mismatched vintage buttons sewn on (as well as vintage fabric)! One of a kind purses for sure!

BACK TO WORK for me .. I am feeling rested and inspired! I have soo many things for fall to get ready! We are quickly approaching our 1 year anniversary at the shop too!

Have a great day!

All Natural.....

Just thought I would check in and say *Hi*! I am off from the shop & general creative work until Thursday. I needed a break... read about 3 posts ago!

I am enjoying some much needed just catching up on life and relaxation as well as getting some great inspirations for new goodies.

On a different note.. I have been working on in the last year or so trying to change the way we live eat ect. I just finished baking some amazing all natural cookies from a local bread co. (chocolate chip cookie mix) Great Harvest Bread co. to be exact. They have the best bread, cookies, cookie mix ect. It is all natural and they sell locally at the markets & at a few retail locations. I purchased the mix at the Neenah store. We have also been enjoying a new (to us) dish soap by seventh generation natural dish liquid in lavender floral & mint! It is awesome. The kids are loving their new shampoo by J/A/S/O/N pure natural organic KIDS ONLY extra gentle shamppo with chamomile & marigold!

I hope you are enjoying your day! Be back to crafting soon! :)
