Spring is in the Air!

Oh, I am SO excited that Old Man Winter is on the way out!  We've been spending time outside riding bikes and watching our poor Snowman fade away!  I act sad for the kids, but secretly I'm thinking "Go Away Big White Snowman and Don't Come Back Until I Say SO!!"    
Well, with Spring in the air, you know Easter is FAST approaching!  I'm very excited to share the Spring Tie Fabric with you.  These ties are now available for purchase through my Etsy Shop

 No little man in your family, NO problem!  I have plenty of Flower Headbands available for you Leading Lady!  Most flowers can also be put on a clip if your daughter has a hard time keeping a headband in her hair! 

Any questions please email me at

HAPPY (almost) SPRING!!

New Years Resolutions and Business Endeavors

Happy New Year to Everyone!  I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday:)  My husband and I celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary on New Years Eve!  We had a quiet evening at home with a wonderful steak dinner prepared by my hubby, wine and a movie.  A great big THANKS to my Mom and Dad for taking the kids so we could spend some time together!

As we begin 2010, I'm sure many of us have started the list of resolutions for the year.  I know I have!  My main goal this year is to expand my business.  I plan to add more products (some "girly" products!) and begin selling on  I am excited about about the expansion and look forward to providing my handmade accessories to more customers.
