Let it be Christmas Everywhere!!

Let heavenly music fill the air...The theme of our school program last night and "performer" of course was angel and sang a solo her very first program. And mom of course was sitting in the front row with her camera wiping tears as she sang, "Angels watching over him, oh my lord!"

Another Break

My posts are very few and far between during this busy fall. Right now I have nothing listed in my Etsy shop as I take a breather and work on some crafts for our church craft sale. I found that I was unable to do both at once, so I am just crafting for a week or so then I will relist everything along with my Christmas line.

Photo Shoot

Ava Colletion Knot Tunic

I recently had the opportunity to work with a portraiture artist with in photographing my latest designs. I had a wonderful working experience with Suymey. She was very professional and friendly and her work is awesome, something I dream to do with my clothes. She knows just how to set the stage for a beautiful shoot. I love the results and would be happy to work with her again!

20% off Dress Sale

Choose a dress, any dress from my shop and take 20% off. WOW!! Here's another deal: See a shirt you would like as dress length. Today through Sunday evening (the 20th....also G2's birthday!!), you can get it dress length for shirt price. DOUBLE WOW!!!
Got a new shirt listed today. I love this one! The fabric is so bright and fun and fall! I told G3 she could have it, since G1 and G2 already got new shirts made by mom. But order fast on this one, the fabric supply is limited!!

She is going to use these for her 5 year/kindergarten pictures as well.

It goes great with my pink/brown corduroy ruffles.

Also looks great under my corduroy jumper!

I'm doing it again...

...I am hosting another garage sale. I just did one this spring. Well here is how the story goes. I always clean out the kids clothes every spring and every fall. But also there is some land that we bought last winter. Some gorgeous wooded acres:



The house is going to go (do you wonder why?) and another is eventually going to take its place.
Also on this land (we bought as is, everything goes with) is a barn FULL of junk {treasures}, that I am trying to lure people into buying, rather than throwing it all in a whole in the ground! One man's junk is another man's treasure, is it not??

How Many People Did This Today?

It is back to the schedule, back to the grind, back to a little more peace and quiet. I love this time of year when you get up in the cool crisp morning, send the kids (half of them anyway) off on the big yellow bus and then relax with a cup of "Joe", as my brothers would say.

I have three I am sending off this year. Three big girls.
And now mom is at home with her three boys, one who considers himself big and thinks he should be joining the girls (not for 2 more years buddy). Another who is a complete delight and at such a fun age learning new words every day. And the last, but certainly not least, (who is also at a fun age figuring out what is going on in this world), waking, watching, giggling, eating, (pooping), sleeping.
For the latest on Etsy updates. I am sitting right now at about a 2 week wait after I get my next 2 orders out the door (which are very close to completed....tomorrow!).

Been racing around like a mad woman....

trying to get some more items posted this week. I succeeded in a few only because I have my sister here this week helping me again. She might be going home for good now after this week. :( Ah well after I get some new items up I can relax a little. But I have more cute cute fabric waiting for me to start shaping into something pretty and well wearable! I am pretty pleased with the results. First we had to weed out a few obstacles:
Number one: Rascal there in the bottom corner! (Annoying!! thinks big sister.) As soon as the camera comes out he is there saying "cheese!!" (I will have to do some sewing and model it on him.)
Number two: The glasses had to go they were causing too much reflection.

Shirt number one made in pretty pink and brown which seems to be a favorite color combination of mine for now. I added some shirring on the sleeves and waist to give it a little different look, I like the end result. Got that one photographed and went in to punch down the bread dough and form it into loaves. At the same time throwing some sandwiches together for the rest of the troop and giving instructions to sister how to make a headband since we decided we needed to add to the next photo shoot.
Shirt number two and we forgot to shoot some of this shirt with a layered look. She tried it on with a pink shirt underneath and it looked darling....might have to squeeze that in that possible? So we added a bandana to this one. You may request it for an additional $5.00 in the fabric of your choice! I really like this shirt too (so does the girl in the photo...hmmm...does she deserve it, probably I guess for all her hard work :)).
I had an order for a size 8 shirt in this style so we decided to update the pictures for this shirt as it is still available but the sparrow pants in the old photos are not. YAY I got rid of pretty much every last inch of that stuff! It was a favorite for sure.

Then I got out the performer to model the new corduroy dress that I was working on earlier. Very cute with AND without the sash, take your pick. I wish I had a pair of little brown boots to model this with. Sigh.....maybe I will find some one of these days. Oh....and the ruffles will also be available too. I would like to make shirt to model them with as well....!

That's all for today folks, as she gives the final bow! Clap clap clap...she likes to be on stage!

Take advantage of the blog sale that ends on Friday. I plan to get a couple more items listed by tomorrow. (Do I need to pull an all nighter? I have Mt. Everest piling in the laundry room.)

Extention of Sale!!

I am not getting done quite what I had wanted to before my "blog sale" ended. The warm weather is calling me. We haven't really had summer as of yet in our area and now it is finally warming up to 90 degrees for a couple days so I have to get out and enjoy it and relax in the sun. For next week it is supposed to cool off again. :( Well that means I will have more time to get the rest of my stuff listed that I want to. So on account of the warm weather, the buy one get one equal or lesser value 50% off sale is officially extended till the end of next week, August 21st. That way you have more to choose from when you go to make your order. On the other hand if you already know what you want, feel free and let me know. Any listings also that are complete outfits are 20% off the list price.

I am working on some ruffles and a darling corduroy dress right now. I want to also add another shirt and a skirt to mix and match as well. Is there a certain style people are looking for? Let me know!!
