shirt skirts are back....

Remember those comfy & cute shirt skirts I made last fall out of men's button up shirts.... I decided to bring them back again..

I made up my first batch and they are cuter than ever.

Cute online shop alert!

I found this little shop a few years ago.. but had yet to purchase anything. That is until recently. My daughter is obsessed with pugs. (No we don't have one... yet!) I went online to purchase the cute tote shown below and just fell in love. I purchased the first dress & I am drooling over the second! (It is out in my size) Their clothing line is dainty june! So fun and vintage inspired!

They also have a cute line of boston terrior tee's ect.

I bought Jada this fun tote and a cute lil' pocket mirror to match! (It is a surprise though... her birthday is not until Oct.)

Go and check out this sweet little indie site...

4 simple goals....

I have decided to participate in a blog challenge by Elsie from A Beautiful Mess. The challenged is to post 4 simple personal goals that you would like to meet before 2011 & then blog about each one as it is accomplished!

1. Make a little more "me" time, between owning & running the shop(not too mention making much of my shop inventory) as well as being married with two kids and a dog I very rarely get time to unwind by myself. Phew that was exhausting just typing that Lol!

2. Host an AWESOME Urban Craft fair! This is in the works. I hope to make it an annual event and it has been a dream/goal of mine for sooo long! It is actually going to happen Nov. 20th so stay tuned!

3. Keeping my life, shop & kids organized! I may look like I have it all together.. but I always feel so unorganized!

4. More date nights with my hubby! I miss just "us" dates & we don't get a lot of time with just the two of us!

p.s. I have soo many more.. but these are the top on my list! ;)

Have a great day!

Ingrid & the 6th summer Craftacular!

Sorry I have been a bit quiet here! I took the day off and went to see Ingrid Michaelson in Milwaukee.. it ended up she was not the headliner so many Ingrid fans including myself were quite dissapointed! However I am on her mailing list and just got a notice that she is coming to Madison.. woohoo!!! I already bought tickets! Yay!

I also purchased this adorable tee at the Milwaukee show!

I will be here on Sunday with about 80 other talented crafters! Come on by and say Hi! It is the largest craftacular yet & there are goody bags that will not dissapoint for the first 50 shoppers! See you there!!!

Have a great rest of the week and if it is not raining Saturday I will be at the Appleton farmer's market 8-12:30.

Tote bag pillow Tutorial...

My daughter recently found this cute tutorial and decided to make one for her room. It is eco friendly & so cute!

It is pretty simple if you have a blank canvas tote or you could use any tote for that matter!

Fold in the straps of the tote fill with plastic shopping bags or stuffing.. we used both & decorate. I did sew the top together & I recommend a needle used for denim ect.

So cute! Happy Monday! :)
