Happy Halloween...well, almost anyway : )

I'm pretty excited about Halloween and the girls are too since I told them I would put a little blush on their cheeks! I'll post pics over the weekend of them all done up. Now that they are almost 4, I'm hoping the big kids' scarey costumes don't scare them as bad this year. We try to get our being out done pretty early and it's usually little princesses or super heros at the time we are out.

My sewing machine officially is not working. I told her (yes, she is my baby) I would take her to the doctor first thing next week, but it might have to wait until January, after Christmas. If we do get any custom orders, it will be trips to my mom's which no one will mind a bit.

The girls' birthday party is about a week away and I haven't even begun to really plan for it. We are going to Disney the day of their birthday and staying 2 nights!!!! We are WAY overdue for a family vaca and we haven't told the kids we are going!! I love huge surprises! We are going to wake everyone up early, pack them in the car, and head to Orlando, all the while still keeping it a secret!!! I'll be sure to post tons of pics of the looks on their faces when they figure it out!

I hope everyone has a very fun, very safe Halloween and I can't wait to see others' post pics of their little ones all dressed up! So much fun!

We're back

Well, we will just say that the craft show was a huge learning experience! I believe we were with the wrong crowd and didn't sell much due to folks not having little ones. But we learned a lot and if we go back to that one next year, we will take much different items!!

Things are getting back to norm somewhat. Halloween is this weekend and then I'm down to one week before the girls' birthday party and still have so much to do for it! Then we are off to Disney for 3 days, 2 nights!! I can't wait for the girls to see the princesses for the first time! They're little expressions will be priceless!!

My oldest niece turns 14 today. Boy time flies. It really was just yesterday that she was the same age as my girls. She is gorgeous and I'm so proud of the young lady she is.

Here is a pic of the craft show...

We also went to the pumpkin patch. Here are a few pics from that! We had a blast. I can't hardly remember the last time I carved pumpkins! I forgot how much fun it is!!

***Sigh of relief***

Well, I got my last piece done with time to spare. All ready for the show Saturday : ) ***great big grin***

The girls are going on their first big camping trip with my parents for the weekend. No mommy or daddy for 2 nights! They are such big girls and I'm still in shock that they are growing as fast as they are. Can't wait to start planning for their birthday party in a few weeks!!! Just got to get through this craft show. One huge thing at a time is all I can handle.

Here is the last dress...

The picture does not do the colors in this dress justice. They are so rich and GORGEOUS!!!

Deep Breaths

So I'm trying to finish up my last pieces for the show Saturday and last week my serger knife went dull. I ordered a new one that didn't fit, had to send it back, then had to order and wait another week for the correct one to arrive. Then Sunday my sewing machine started making really loud noises. I oiled it and yesterday it seemed good to go. Well, the noises are back. I only have 4 pieces to finish up. Please say a little prayer that my machine holds out through the week. I'm taking her into the doc next week but just need her to last through these last few items! PLEASE!! I'M BEGGING!!! Breath, breath, ahhhhh.

Craft Show this Friday!!

I've been pretty busy trying to get ready for our very first craft show but thought I would take a minute to post some things that we will have available. You can also find them at!! Check us out anytime! You can also find us on Facebook! Become a fan to get discounts and specials!!

Click on the pics below to see an up close shot. You are able to really see alot of the detail in most of the items below.

I made the purple/ivory outfit with pants for the show instead of capris.

This is a sample set, so will look just like this.

Here are some other items that will be there but you can also find in our store!!

In looking at these, I can see how much I really, really want a new camera. I can honestly say the pictures do not do these bright, rich colors and detail justice. On our etsy site, there are much better pictures! Check us out and wish us luck for our first show!!! I'll take lots of pics and post them this weekend!

It's Fall!!!

I am so excited about the next few months! This month we will be attending our very first craft show! I am looking forward to the experience as a whole and hoping to learn a ton to be that much more prepared for our next one! We don't have a ton of stuff and it doesn't sound like it is going to be a huge show making it perfect for our first show!!

Next month we are taking a family trip to Disney for my girls' 4th birthday! I can't believe 4 years have gone by in a blink of an eye. My hubby and I are looking forward to the little family get away! Can't wait to go camping Thanksgiving! Right after dinner we are leaving to go camping for 3 days with my parents. Should be perfect weather. Taking the kyaks, marshmallows, chocolate bars, mmmm....

Then to December, the live Nativity and Christmas...I love Christmas and the whole month of December : )

To Blog or Not To Blog...

You wouldn't think it would be such a hard decision....but....who wants to read what I have to say?? And do I have enough to say??? Well, when it comes to my kids and sewing I can't stop talking. So here we go. This will be our blog and we hope you enjoy it : )

I thought I would share a picture that always makes me smile. This is my very good friend, Beth, our girls and her son in the oven, Brennen. He is here and much older now!!!
