It's Done!

Well it's finally done! I'm doing my happy dance right now!

I've completed my newsletter! I've been talking about doing this for years and after a few failed attempts, I think that I have a format and program that I like. I can't wait to see how this evolves over the next few issues. I'm unsure if I'll do this monthly or quarterly, we'll see how I'm able to manage my time.

If you'd like a peak at my very first issue, you can join my mailing list by signing up on the right side of my blog, and I'll send you off a copy, then you can come back here and let me know what you think.

Zodiac - Cancer

I've finally created and posted something new in my shop! Yeah Me!!!!!

I'm super thrilled about this card and I'm sure that I'm going to roll this out into being a new line of cards for my shop.

They are Zodiac cards! They will all be personalied with the characteristics of each Sign and I will try to match the embellishments with the birth stone of that month!
I started with Cancer and I love the way it turned out. I was able to incorporate so many features that make being born under the Moon special.
You may or may not know that the symbol for Cancer is the Crab, the ruling planet is the Moon, the color is silver and the starstone is the pearl, there are also some fantastic charactersistics that go along with being a Cancer as well as some not so great ones, but I've only included the good stuff!

You can find this card now in my shop with more to follow soon!

The Big 5!

Well my daughter celebrated her 5th birthday party last weekend, and it was all about Hannah!
For those of you not in the know that's Hannah Montana!
I was able to convince her to have a pizza party and that turned out really well.

Everyone had a great time and it was really stress free which was nice!
I was quite pleased at the turn out of the favor boxes! They looked really striking on the table and I did get quite a bit of compliments on them which is always nice! A few of my items that I ordered from etsy did not arrive in time, but I blame myself for not thinking about the shipping time.......oh well I still think that they were pretty great!

Back and Better Than Ever!

Like the title says, well you know how it goes....
I'm not sure how or why I've neglected my blog for so long, but I'm back and hopefully I'll be able to keep posting more regularly! Life, Family and Whatnot keeps me pretty busy these days. My girls are growing up so fast, I don't want to miss one moment of it!

I have been in a creative slump for some time, but I've found my mojo and have designed quite a few new items. Not too many have made it to my shop yet, but I hope to change that very soon.

This is one item that I'm really proud of, Gerber Daisy Hair Accessories! These were originally made to hand out for my daughters 5th birthday loot bags, but after creating an endless amount of them, I ended up with quite a bit of excess stock so I decided to sell some in my shop! For now these are a limited item, so if I were you, I'd get one while I can.

They are a beautiful 4" silk gerber daisy attached to a no slip fabric covered hair clippie. These are so cute for your little girl and the perfect accessory for spring/summer.
My daughter and her friends drooled over these when they got them in their loot bags! It was a huge hit!
I have a few other colors in my shop and will be adding more soon!

Enjoy and as always
