Do you ever feel like this-lol!! I went yesterday with Gracie on her field trip to the pumpkin patch and at the very end they had a pig race-it was so cute and the kids loved it(okay I loved it too). When I was looking thru the pics and saw this one it just struck me as funny cuz sometimes this is exactly what I feel like!! But the field trip was great gracie had fun and I enjoyed being with her!
My lil Hope is sooo funny!! She sees me make things and sell them or give them as gifts and so when I made this piggy shirt for her for farm week at preschool she went crazy when I went to make a pics of it!! She was crying and screamin -" that my shirt". She is so emotional and dramatic but hilarious.
Hello all! It's been a while!! To catch up: We had a great Christmas. The girls enjoyed their Christmas and of course got way too much stuff. And I did alot of monogramming: alot of shirts, mugs, and scarfs were all big hits. So maybe now that lifes getting back to normal I'm back to posting every now and again. Hope everyone is off to a Great 2010. So to start off this years blogging I'll leave you with a snow pic of my girls!!
I am getting several Christmas orders coming in and I wanted to go ahead and post some of the Christmas shirts I've been working on!! Also don't forget the mugs-they have been a hit-I've done alot of them for people getting them for: stocking stuffers, teachers gifts, co-workers, and the sports ones for the men in your life(I've got vols and titans;camo). They really do make cute gifts!! Don't forget I've got adult($10.00) and child's($8.00).
I am very excited about Christmas-I always love the holidays!! I know we are going to have such a fun Christmas this year with a 5 year old and 22 month old:) Which is why I am going to try to wind up all my Christmas orders by the first week of December, so I would like to get all orders in by the end of November so that will give me a week to complete all of them. Don't get me wrong I love doing this and who doesn't need a little extra Christmas cash but I have been VERY busy this last two weeks, I can't even count how many turkeys I've done, which has brought to my attention that Christmas could get a little crazy. One of the best things about the holidays is family!! so I don't want to be stuck monogramming and appliqueing all hours of the night. I will try my best not to turn any orders away so e-mail me and I'll see what I can do!!
I could not get a good picture of the pendant or rings-the are blurry. I tried every room in the house lights no lights and just could not get a good picture. These are very cute, so I will keep trying to get better pics.
I have some new pics I need to post and will be doing so soon. I have been extremely busy- this Friday I am doing my first craft fair!! I have been working on items for this along with orders that have continued to come in. Thank you to all of you that have ordered and allowed me to take your items as displays-that helps me out alot! I am extremely excited and nervous about this Friday!! I have been working on some cute winter/christmas shirts, again, I will have pics soon. Also I would like to wish my sweet Gracie a Happy Birthday!!! She turned 5 Sunday and we will be having her party this Saturday-oh what a weekend ahead. So wish me luck and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on items or setting up my booth or anything I would appreciate all you input!!! Hope everyone has a Great weekend!!
My little Hope is such a turkey so this is perfect for her!! I love this little turkey-it can be done with your pick of feather designs and colors which means it can be done for the girls or boys!! I pondered doing one with vols and titans feathers?? This can be done on long or short sleeve!! Let me know what you guys think!!
You can't see alot about the shirt in this picture but I had to post it anyway because she is so CRAZY:)
This is a shirt I did for Gracie!! It was my first applique, I saw the pattern and knew I had to do it for her because she loves candy corn. She is also sporting her Halloween cup with her name on it!! I have found smaller travel mugs(11 oz) which is perfect for the kids. Don't forget with those you can get multiple inserts for every season and occasion!! I took this picture late in the afternoon so the shirt and her hair had been through a day of pre-school and nap, so if ordering a shirt it doesn't come with all the paint, food and whatever else she came in contact with that day:)
This is a cute little shirt for Molly Smith. Molly is a wonderful mix of girlie princess and play in the dirt tomboy-I LOVE her little personality. This is a little something for her girlie girl side!!
This is for Mr. Logan Cantrell. Kristi wanted something for fall but that he could wear even after Halloween, so ya can't go wrong with Sam the Scarecrow. I love this- I've been limited on my boy stuff but I have to say this is CUTE!! I hope Kristi and Logan like it.
I had to put this on here-a friend of mine had some stuff she got for a new baby in her family and wanted her name put on them. I did a few outfits and this blanket, I just thought this blanket was sooo cute with her name on the little lamb.
the yellow has little bees on it (cute with the letter b), black and white polk-a-dot, strawberry shortcake, Christmas penguins, patriotic red, white and blue, holiday gingerbreads, black and white with scene.
black with candy corn, orange and white check, camo-for the hunter in your life-,adorable snowmen, white with little swirls, lime green and pink polk-a-dot
orange, pink with crazy dots (love it), purple with little swirls, halloween, care bears, and little boys sports.
I have had several interest in the mugs and what options there are on the fabric-so here are a few pic of some of the fabric I have on hand. I do have a few that I didn't get in the pics, and I also have some vols and titans fabric on the way, so don't see what tickles your fancy, let me know and I'm sure we can find something!! Here are some of the fabrics I have. It may be hard to tell alot about them but I would've had to take a bunch of pics to get each one individually so they are bunched up-if you see one you would like to see closer up let me know and I can e-mail you a up close pics.

I am 26, I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls. I am working at the Learning House Preschool as the Mother's Morning Out teacher. My husband,Trent, is 29-he works in the boro and we have been married for 6 years.Gracie is 4-she is my little helper and my talker,she talks and questions from sun-up to sun-down. Hope is 17 months-she is my wild child, she is much more daring than Gracie ever was, but she has a personality that lights up the world. I love watching them grow(even though they are growing too fast) it brings out the kid in me-I cherish their innocents, and their views on the world. We as parents think we are teaching them and we are, but so many times they teach/remind us of the importance in life-we get so busy we forget sometimes!!
