Ok, here it is!! Her FIRST recital!! yay!!! Look at how precious these girls are...... :-) She has been going to gymnastics and dance for 9 weeks now and they had a small Holiday Program last night. My goodness was she excited, I can't wait to see how she will be for the production in June when she wears a full blown costume and performs. I was so proud of her, from a shy little girl to performing in a room full of at least 200, wow, she surely shines.

I know, I know, I have barely been on here...sorry about that. :-) I have been getting ready for the holidays and doing minimal sewing lately. However, I did just get the newest line of fabric...

and OMG, can you say GORGEOUS!! This fabric is by Patty Young and she calls this Andalucia. I have known Patty for a few years and it has been amazing watching her go from clothing design to fabric design with her own line of greeting cards!! My sneak peek of the fabric was a single charm pack and some ribbon. Here's what I did with it ;-)

and then at the door was this box, at the sight of it I was already drooling. I KNEW what was in this box..hehe So I made a little cover to match the bag. I got away from the clothing for a little bit, I guess I needed a break. I enjoyed making something different that took alot less time but to tell you the truth? I now miss the clothes, the ruffles, the yep, I will be going back to what I love best. :-) Here are a few bags I made on my little side step...

I really loved the costume put together for Raina this year... :-) and it looks like she was pretty happy with it too!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Well it was a big day in the life of Raina yesterday. GYMNASTICS AND DANCE!! Oh my gosh was she excited. I didn't think we would make the entire 7 days from the point I "told" her she was going until the actual day...
Now most of my experience comes from being a sofball mom and a baseball mom, so this aspect is totally new for me as well. It almost seemed like I was the one going? haha
However, the dance and gym studio was VERY clear about parent spectating. The picture that you see here? I had to sneak up to the door and peek around the corner with my camera...yes it was SOOO obvious to the other moms it was our first time..but how could I not get a photo? It just was unthinkable not to have something? right? A friend of mine was concerned by this "rule" however, their explanation was that if moms and dads were to be watching, the kids would be distracted by thoughts of being seen for each and every attempt. Not like we havent heard the "mom WATCH" yes, I totally understood and was relieved that there are two weeks during the nine week sessions that allow us to "spectate" hehe AND a gymnastics program along with the dance recital in June!! yay!! so i will be posting some much clearer photos in just a few weeks. :-)
(now because I am not familiar with the moms and dads, i have spotted out the other kiddies sharing without permission!! :-)

Today I finally got a bunch of listing up... I have noticed that the economy is really hitting us all and thought I would give my customers and possibly new customers a treat. I made 8 Christmas sets, I started ALL of them at .99 and there are no reserves. :-) Take a peek if you get a chance!! Dont miss this deal!

Here is the link to all the auctions:

Well, we went on vacation and I have been back now for a couple weeks. So far here are some of the sets I have listed....

HERE is my baby....she LOVES softball and has played since she could lift a bat. :-) I could'nt be more proud than I am of this young lady. She is on this travel team(if you click the team pic) that is amazing! My summers have been full of running across the country watching her and let me tell you, I would have it NO other way. Kalynn is now 16(yep, just got her driver license..ugh!) and has been the starting catcher for her high school Varsity softball team both freshman and sophmore years. Not only has she excelled in sports, but her grades always keep her on the honor roll. She works a part-time job AND helps with her siblings...She is my inspiration

She is the in the second row, furthest to the left of your screen.. :-) Isnt she gorgeous!!! :-)
I have a new set that is listed but it is ending tonight...take a peek if you get a chance...

I also have a sample listed and will probably be taking a break here pretty soon, our annual vacation is coming up and try to pack 2 kids(the oldest is going to a softball tourney) 2 adults for camping for 10 days AND sew? nahh, I dont think I can even pull that off! :-)

I just HAD to share these new photos....this is a set that didnt begin as a "set".... The winner of my last contest won a custom spring top with matching clippies, and after receiving her top, asked for a pair of capris. Well, this is the final outfit. How stinkin cute did this turn out to be!!! Thanks so much to customer that sent these photos, your little one is absolutely adorable! :-)

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Well we are leaving for our first trip of the spring/summer soon. I have been working on a new project that has kept me from any new designs. I have been making pillows...yep, you heard that right...pillows. These arent just "any" pillows, these are Native American Star Pillows. Let me say now, these are so much more difficult than they look!! I am supposed to make 10 of these is my progress so far.......

Saturday, May 17, 2008

One more before I head upstairs to bed.... a sneak peek at a set to come. however, I have already taken the pants apart and I think I am going to make a skirt for it...AND I think I am going to offer to attach some cute shorts made with that Ginger Blossom fabric.. :-)

Well, a while back we won an auction for an entire collection from Giggle Girls now known as Lucky*K and let me tell you, this is the cutest set!! here is a little peek at one of the sets. There were 9 pieces total!! loooooovvveee this!! Can you tell she just loves messing with me when we take photos? this is the best one of 10 photos!! haha
I received some customer photos!! yay!! check out these cutie pies!!

The last time I went out for a quick photo shoot with Raina, I made my son tag along. Little did he know I was going to make him pose for the camera too! ;-) I realized that I had NO recent photos of my young man, so here is the result of mom begggiinnnggg him to take pics. To top it off? he had to friends show up, that ended our "humoring mom session" :-)

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

I have been working on some interesting designs is a little peek at one that I will be listing soon. I think I might try some new photos, I would really like to see this set more full and longer.

I have also been working on this princess has six petal panels with an embroidered design on each panel. So far it is wayyy cute, not my normal style but I have been wanting to try a few new things.
