Cutting the strings and having some fun.
Halloween was quite fun this year with no more door to door knocking or pounding the pavement looking for the house with the light on wondering will they or wont they open the door?That was not my idea of fun, however my teenagers thought so. I decided they were finally old enough to split up from mom and dad and boy oh boy were they ever so happy. I have such a hard time as they say cutting the strings, and halloween made it alot easier for me this year. Having combed through a few select neighbors we finally loaded up our precious 3 year old daughter and headed to our local church for a halloween spacktacular event. I was so thoroughly impressed by the way the local church put on a fall carnival i decided this is the way to go from now on. My lil butter cup was undecided from day to day to either be a ballerina, bumble bee, or a lady bug..... Finally we had our answer.
Blah Blah Blah Blog
It's been quite a while as I haven't had the time nor the desire to blog. Who knew blogging would be such a hard task at hand. Creativity flows from my mind and transforms in to precious work of art when I am creating girly things so how come it's so hard for me to sit down and put my thoughts on the computer? Is blogging jibberish ramblings of a woman going crazy at 12:39 am? I think so...... Who in their right mind would be willing to do this at this hour? Ummmmmmmmm Me of Course. So here it goes the update.
was the perfect spot for our photo shoot location! My daughter Keeley looked amazing as usual and was eager to please. My husband Bobby & my helper Alissa were both on top of all the equipment and wardrobe changes that were neede to take the perfect shot. I was thankful for all the help that I recieved from the two of them. Bobby found this beautiful boat right on the marina and I just knew this was going to be the one. How perfect is this outfit and sucha abeautiful background setting. I was so proud of my little girl as she looked absolutely stunning modeling her mommy's creations.
A Day at the Beach
Wow ! Absolutely Breathtaking ....This was such an amazing day at the beach as we were fitting in tutu portraits on a vacation weekend. My boys were back at the hotel gearing up for a day of fun and shopping. We drove down to the beach once again to take pictures of Keeley modeling my newest of creations the Strawberries and Champagne Petal Filled Tutu Skirt. What a perfectly lovely tutu for the scenery . It was so much fun watching the waves go in and out. These tutus are truly amazing for portrait work. Keeley had such fun at the beach. I loved seeing her dance, and twirl in the sand. She eventually found a stick and was dragging it behind her. I thank god for this perfect little girl he has brought in to our family's life. She is the reason for my inspiration I just love her too too much.

Artisans Guild Relay for life.
Alissa & I worked hours on end to make just the right amount of boutique goodies for the hundreds of people that came through on Saturday & Sunday. With only 3 hours of sleep between the both of us we were up and ready to preform our duties of showing off our wonderful creations. We decided on a raffle of two beautiful dresses.
What fun it is to have a contest! So we decided to raffle off a couple of tutu dresses in the days that followed our arrival at the artisans guild. In order to win the raffled off Tutu Dresses patrons would need to contribute $2.00 towards the raffle. Tickets with the winners information were called on late Sunday afternoon, to come pick up their items. Our beautiful tutu dresses were specially made with layers upon layers of soft american made tulle that would be fit for a princess. Everyone was equally impressed with the quality of new items we had on hand,and several new custom orders were placed.
Bibs & Burpies
With Designers in mind like Amy Butler, Michael Miller, & Robert Kauffman your sure to make incredible artwork out of their fabric. We handmade, and designed our newest addition of bibs and burpcloths adding the extra finishing touches of chenille & terrycloth to the back for a complete moisture barrier.Baby products are always fun to design and sew and we have had a tremendous amount of buyers asking for new products so we decided to try our hand on a few new creations. Consumers were eager to mix and match our bib and burp sets they especially enjoyed our new baby pails that are great for gift giving on birthdays, baby showers, or even stocking stuffers.
Just a Few Creations
Trying our hand at a few ,new ideas besides our signature series of Tutus & Tutu dresses we decided to break the mold and make embellished onesies, pillowcase dresses, baby blankets and doggie tutus in which by the way we sold out of instantly. Go figure! Alissa had been on my case for the past year trying to break down my guard so that I would cave in to her demands of apparel for little pooches. I just resisted with all my might. I absolutely could not, would not make tutus for animals! Or so I thought. Who would of thought that a little tulle attatched to some elastic would make the world go round for dog lovers. People all over town were asking us constantly to make these precious commodities for their little ones. With much hesitation I gave in to their demands and they were such a big hit. Here are a few pics of our sweet and lovely new creations.
