Yes, I feel like I'm dabbling in all sorts of projects right now and it's got me feeling like I need to reign it in a bit...but that'll have to wait 2 more weeks or so until after the Easter Party, Teacher Appreciation and a huge Easter Egg Hunt I'm co-chairing.
So since my mind is flowing with projects, how about some random stuff from the past couple of days?
Sooooo excited when I stumble upon a new designer that is the whole package: Incredibly cute clothes...ORIGINAL designs (SO BIG on this one!)...Fun fabric combinations...Excellent craftsmanship...Great communication...Super fast shipping...
Just a little sneak peek for now...more soon!
2. Finding Balance. I've been working some really late nights lately making sweet, one-of-a-kind birthday hats for some super sweet customers. I love the design process and I love thinking of little ones wearing my creations on their special day. But I've got to fine tune my production calendar or I'll work myself to death. So...if you're thinking you'd like to order a hat, please order EARLY!
3. Lulu & Co.
Speaking of some sweet hats...here's a sampling of some of my latest creations.
For Emily...For Gracie...For Max...For Ronnie... It's what's on the inside that counts, right? :)
4. Embracing Change.
Sometimes you just have to jump in, feet first. Just a few days ago I went to my haircut appointment and came out minus 5" and a lot darker...and I LOVE it! I don't have a good picture, but here's a little snapshot...taken by Grace...with my good camera...the thought of my camera crashing to the floor prevented multiple takes.5. Mellow Yellow
When I was in college and worked at the Gap some 15 yrs. ago (yikes!) they had this one cd with a song that went something like "they call me mellow yellow" that played over and over and over again (Segi~ you know what I'm talking about!!) and even today I find myself humming that tune.
I'm lovin' yellow these days, here's proof: 6. Sushi
A little someone is embracing new things...Yay! I'm so over the always requested spaghetti-noodles-with-butter-and-parmesan-cheese-no-meat-please. And don't worry, no need to call the bad mommy police, it was a California Roll after all.
7. Bring on the Strawberries
With whip cream, of course! Fork completely optional.
Just thankful he's eating fruits again...he's been going through a VERY picky stage lately. 8. Movin' on up
So proud of the little pumpkin for moving up to the next swimming class! Which means she's now in class with one of her "bestest bestest friends" (Grace's words) from school, McKinley, and they're having a blast! I'm excited she gets to keep her same teacher, Ms. Megan. We ♥ Ms. Megan!
9. Berry Pickin'
I can't wait to go to the Blueberry Farm like we did last year! Fun Fun! Mmmmm...those blueberry popsicles are calling my name! For now, how about this sweet vintage tablecloth...Picnic anyone?
10. Old Friends.
My very own "bestest bestest friends" + a playdate = BLISS! So fun to catch up with dear friends while our littles play together. The nap-inducing after effect of the trampoline wasn't bad either *wink*. And what a sweet surprise to walk in to an impromptu birthday celebration with a divine tasting buttercream covered cake - yum!
Thank you, Bridgette and Thank you, Segi!! And thank you Jammie & Xavier for the unexpected date night! (next time, I'm bringing the camera - ha!) Thank you for watching the littles, Mimi & Lexi!
