It's going to be so Sweet!!

I'm so excited about IvyLane's upcoming debut launch! I have to say, I'm so happy with my new group as I got the best of both worlds. I've met some of the nicest, sweetest girls who are my new friends yet I'm still with lots of my old friend whom I've known for a while, including my "bestie" Debbie!! LOL!! I learned that cute word from one of my new friends....she learned it from her teenage daughter! I'm determined to keep up on the hip words so I can be a "cool" mom for Emerson!!

Our big launch is Monday, February 23rd so be sure to keep your eyes open that day for some really sweet new listings!!

Because my baby said to.....

We had a busy day around here! I dropped Emerson off at school and came home to finish up a custom. Got that out in the mail just in time to scoot out the door to pick her up. Then Emerson had her first dentist appointment, which didn't go so well, another story for another day. Then I had to have some blood work done and then I had a doctor's appointment right after that. So we've had a busy day of not-so-fun things to do!!

My somewhat cranky and in desperate need of a nap daughter and I arrived home and she promptly took off for her playroom as she was "really missing" Baby Cinderella, her best friend since Santa brought her at Christmas. I sorted through the mail and picked up a few things around the house and decided I should check on her. I walked into her playroom to see this:

I couldn't help but laugh, Emerson has recently taken to curling up in tight spaces....she loves sitting inside my small storage baskets, burrowing under the clean clothes in laundry baskets, and this weekend she even tried to squeeze inside the oven of her play kitchen!! I tried to kindly explain that the bunk beds were for her baby doll's only and she was way too big to be inside there and then I asked her what in the world had possessed her to climb in there. She looked up at me so sweetly and said as serious as can be "But Mommy, Baby Cinderella told me to do it!"

I just love this age!!

My Bear Friends

This might be one of my very favorite fabrics ever! I purchased this fabric almost 2years ago and, until now, I didn't dare touch it, I never felt I could do it justice....until now!!! I decided one set just wasn't enough, I wanted a whole collection with this gorgeous fabric! Then I realized that wasn't enough, I wanted to share it with my best friend because I knew how much she loved this fabric too! Then, since no custom set is complete without a fabulous set of bows, Debbie and I had to share with our dear friend Melissa! So, basically, you end up with an absolutely fabulous collaboration with some of the cutest fabric I've ever seen!!

I've created a gorgeous twirl dress with matching applique jeans and a Vida dress, you can view them by clicking on the title of this post:

To view all of our listings search IvyLane Bears on eBay! I hope you'll enjoy my latest creation, I've got so many fun things in the works right now, but this one will always hold a special place in my heart!!

Ooops, I almost forgot! Happy Belated Valentine's Day!! I hope yours was as special as mine!!!

Do you ever have....

One of those days where absolutely nothing goes right! Today was one of those days....I won't bore you with the details, but it wasn't pretty! As I sit here, finally alone in peace and quiet, I'm trying to remember that it could be much worse, but of course, that is all relative. And to me, right at this moment, it doesn't feel like it could be. So, I'm forcing myself to go to bed and try to have happy thoughts and happy dreams and pray that I wake up tomorrow with a smile on my face, ready to face what I hope will be a much better day!

Just listed a sweet set on eBay, click here to see it :)

I just listed one of my all time favorite sets on eBay this evening :) Sorry it is so late, but it was a long day! I'm so glad to be home in my PJ's!! I hope you'll take a moment to peek at my first listing with my fabulous new group, IvyLane.

This set is ready to ship and would be best sized for little one's 2T or 3T. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Sneak Peek :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend :) Ours was pretty low key....poor Emerson is sick, yet again. Being a native Floridian, I just love a good cold front, it is such a nice change from our normally sweltering heat. Of course, with the good comes the bad....whenever the cold weather rolls in, so do all the germs! Emerson had a yucky cold/cough/wheezing thing about 2 weeks and no sooner did she take her last day of antibiotics and she was stuffy again. At first we thought it was just her allergies, she is highly allergic to oak and pine which are extremely high right now, but it was pretty obvious after a couple days that it was not just, we're back on our breathing treatments and will probably be paying another visit to her doctor soon.

So I wanted to give you just a teeny tiny little sneak peek of what I've been working on! I've spent hours and hours on this sweet set, it is chock full of lots of little details! I've been holding on to this fabric for quite sometimes, just waiting until I could finally decide exactly what I wanted to do with it. Watch for it later this week :) I've also collaborated on this one with my dear friend Debbie, polkadotsandpigtails, so you'll have to check out the matching pieces she'll be offering.

I also wanted to share with you some fabrics that I've been staring at for a few days now. I absolutely love all three of these fabrics and can't decide which one I should use first! Those gorgeous butterflies remind me of a warm spring day! How can I possibly resist those darling little birdies!?! Everyone knows how much I adore strawberries and cherries!! Yikes!!!! How will I ever decide?? So, if you like one of these fabrics more than the other, let me know! I'd love to hear from you, leave me a comment or send me an email and share with me which one you'd love to see me use first!!

Some wonderfully exciting news :)

I am so thrilled to announce that I have joined the talented ladies of IvyLane on eBay! I'll post my first listing with the group here early next week :) Also, look for our first launch together on February 26th, you're sure to find something sweet!

A Long Time Coming.....

Okay, okay, so it took me forever to jump on the bandwagon and get this blog going! I've been wanting to! I've thought about it at least a hundred times, I've even sat down at the computer and TRIED to get it going and just couldn't!

So, I figured no time like the present, so here it is! I've spent hours muddling through and trying to figure out this whole "blogging" world. Bear with me as I still have tons more to learn, but I'm trying!

I've gotten so addicted to reading other's blogs....friends, designers I admire, groups, my buyers, etc. and enjoy so much reading their updates and what is going on in their lives so I'm hoping you'll enjoy reading mine!

I'm going to try to post as frequently as possible! You'll be able to hear all about what is going on in our daily new eBay or Etsy listings, group launches, something Emerson says that just makes me laugh out loud or perhaps something she's done that makes me want to cry! That is what I have figured out is fabulous about blogging, you can just talk about anything you want and someone may actually read it and maybe, just maybe enjoy it!!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog :)
