The New Collection and a Big Ol’ Giveaway!!!

Drum roll….it is HERE!! Well…almost here. At midnight my shop will have my new collection (ok..I put it up a little early because this girl is tired). I am so excited to show you all that I have been working on. If you have followed my shop for awhile you know that I just have two new collections a year and many of the things that are offered are ONE OF A KIND. I am a little surprised I am …

Artful Blogging

One of my favorite things to do when a new Artful Blogging comes out is to literally lock myself in our bedroom and read the whole thing cover to cover. I think it is such a stunning magazine and I love to read the articles by my friends and meet new bloggers. I was so excited when Artful Blogging contacted me letting me know they wanted to feature my blog. I loved writing this article because I shared a little …

Eye Candy

Hello girlies! I am back from my speaking engagement in Louisiana (and I can't wait to tell you all about it). I am busy, busy, busy trying to finish up the spring/summer collection and I can't wait to reveal it all to you on Saturday, May 1 . Mark your calendars. Set your alarm clocks. You will not be disappointed:-) I thought I would give you a little eye candy to hold you over. I hope you are having a …

And So It Begins

I have known for years that I have been very lucky that Madolyn has always worn whatever I have bought for her. She didn't complain. She oohed and aahed over everything. It seems that things are changing a bit around here. Maddy needed a few dresses for piano events recently so we went to Target…because that is about how much I like to spend on children's clothes (heck..who am I kidding..that is how much I like to spend on my …

Flea Market Countdown

I live in Colorado. This means that all my wonderful flea market shopping stops for the winter. No garage sales. No flea markets. We don’t even have a great Goodwill. So….I have been EXTREMELY anxious for one of my favorite flea markets..A Paris Street Market… to start back up on May 1. 15 more days. Yes…I counted! I love waking up early, grabbing a coffee, eating the most wonderful breakfast burrito and shopping with my friends. I am also looking …

Easter

I understand that Easter was over a week ago….I just like to be fashionably late! Kelly took our photo when we got home from church. Sure..the first one was nice…it quickly turned into THIS….. Once we regained our composure we set the table and got ready for my sister and her family to come over for lunch. After lunch we too the kids outside for an egg hunt in our brown grass.   (at some point Benjamin changed his clothes …

My Little Entrepreneur

I have a little girl that is constantly coming up with different projects and telling me that she is going to sell them in her own shop. The name of her shop (to be) will be Bluebird. She wants to sell bracelets, necklaces, headbands, eye shades and pretty much anything else she can come up with. Our poor neighbors have been sold many things over the years (without my knowledge). I was wondering where she was getting all her cash. …

Not Just Yet

(I realize that this photo is blurry…it just makes me smile so I put it in anyways) Your last child will always be your baby. You let them get away with more. You laugh at more and punish less. You let them come into bed with you at any time. You are also really sad when you see the baby part of them disappearing. My Benjamin is looking less little everyday and truth be told…I am a little heartbroken. I …

This Will Make Your Ovaries Ache

I know I am a little bias…but my nephew is the cutest little baby! This sweet little boy had blown out of two outfits while he was at our house on Easter:-) My sister had just finished nursing him and had been trying to keep him warm with a blanket. He looked so cute and content…I had to go and get my camera real quick to capture his sweetness. I hope you don't call your husband to come home early …

Dream Girls Weekend II

The wonderful weekend continued the next day with creating. Terri Brush and her assistant Donna (the sweetest) set up the most gorgeous table with extra special gifts for all of us. There were also gifts from Tiffany and Maija on the table. I had the best time learning to solder and have since ordered tons of new supplies so I can play at home:-) This is one of the things I worked on. Tiffany so generously opened up her whole …

Dream Girls Weekend

Have you ever met someone and immediately adored them and wished you lived closer to them? That is how I felt when I met Tiffany last year at Farm Chicks. We were both at an amazing party hosted by Joe, Jermonne and Cindy. Tiffany caught my eye because she was wearing white, ruffled leggings…how cute is that?? Even though we had only just met…we talked about creating, dreams, friendships that GET you! I saw Tiffany again a little bit at …
