What exactly could two best friends of 12 years possibly be doing at 4am in the morning when they both have jobs that start at 7:30 am? We'll sewing of course. Were crazy I'll admit but when my friend needs me I'll always be there. Janie came over at 12:00 noon Sunday with the bright idea that we needed to make her triplets Disney princess dresses for the annual family vacation. Sounds simple right? NOT! Janie who I love to death tells me she needs my help the day before she leaves. Oh My Gosh ! Was my first reaction. Bloody H*** was my next. Thank god I have an assistant at work. Here's the outcome.

Here's my dilemma for the month of January. I have 5 birthday party's 2 of which I have to throw, and 1 anniversary that i totally forgot. My best friend has a birthday, and so do her triplet's, and she is counting on me for help, my 2 kids want something fun, my nephew just wants money. So what exactly should a mom of 4 plus kids, a teacher,and a boutique owner supposed to do if you have a 14 year old boy and it's his birthday? Let's see how can I save money and make it all happen with out a hitch! I can't exactly make tutus or can I? Hubby and son say, "I don't think so." hehehe No I guess that ideas out of the question DARN! I know, I know lets go BOWLING!!!!

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.
