Daddy Daughter Ball

 Sometimes getting ready is the best part.  Bubble bath, sparkles all over and getting your hair done.  She is growing up so fast.  She picked her own dress.  It had to twirl.  She is wearing dangly earrings for the first time and felt so special.  She looks forward to this dance all year.  This is her fourth year going with her daddy.  On the way into the dance Madolyn was watching other daddies arriving with two or three daughters.  She …

One Year And Counting

A year ago today I was putting my first items on my site.  I was so nervous and sick to my stomach.  I am not a timid person or usually afraid to put myself out there….but this felt different.  I didn't know what the response would be to my items.  The things I had designed and made would either sell or not.  A year later I have retailers from coast to coast of the United States and I have shipped …

It Never Ends

When we were building our home almost six years ago I was really excited about three things.  1. The laundry room was on the upstairs with the bedrooms.  Obviously I didn't want to exercise. 2. We would have a fireplace in our bedroom. Which I wish I could tell you we use all the time for our romantic evenings alone.  3. I would have a library for all my books.  So, back to this laundry room of mine.  If I was going …

More frames, letters and journals will be coming within the next week …

Friends + Anthropologie + Dinner = Perfection

  Sometimes you just need a little time with the girls.   Add shopping and dinner in the mix and it doesn't get much better.   Doesn't time go by too fast when you are with good friends? A TRUE friend….one that will try to steal your favorite chair for you!   I am waiting for my call from Anthro…it is coming any day now.    I know you all will love to know that the woman in the dressing …
