Little Lamb!

I have been holding onto this darling import fabric since fall...waiting for just the right time to create something fabulous with it! It's been very cold and snowy around here lately...and while I'm so careful to cherish every day and not rush these days with my darlings, I have started to look fondly toward warmer days coming. "Little Lamb" is a great transition set from warm spring days to hot summer months. Please click HERE to view this sweet set!

Asian Garden...Near to my heart!

As some of you know, I was able to spend some time living in Japan. The memories of this are near to my heart and I am often inspired by things Japanese. We love to eat out at Japanese restaurants (our FAVORITE!!!)...and I'm proud to say my little blondie is quite a pro at eating with chopsticks. This sweet set was inspired by the Alexander Henry Yui Kokeshi doll print. Thanks for checking it out HERE!!

Garden Bunny!

As part of the AnthologyInc.'s "Breath of Fresh Air Launch" today, I've listed this dainty spring set! Please find it HERE!
I feel in love with this Full Moon Forest Line with artistically hidden bunnies, owls and bees. Purple just happens to be my all time favorite color too, and I don't think I've ever designed a set around the color! The ruffle pants are actually my favorite part of the set because the purple Damask print with the sweet hidden bunnies is something I could look at all day long!!! Hope you enjoy this "springy" set!

Also a big hug and THANK YOU to my sweet friend Christine who worked some fun magic on this picture you see right here!! Didn't she do a lovely job! She has started her photography business in the Long Island area!! How exciting!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

We just finished a party for my baby Wynter!
1 year old already. It is so cliche about "how time flies," but so true. I've been very dedicated to enjoying these fleeting moments with my babies...they are such blessings.

We had a "cupcake" themed party for Wynter and not being much of a "baker," was impressed with my darling little cupcakes. The kids who RARELY get sweets, were pretty excited about the cupcakes. It was painful putting a sugar-laden cupcake in front of my little baby....she got into it a bit and then I switched it out for some organic bananas and cheese....Hey, she didn't seem to even notice! She was more excited about the pom poms on her little cupcake birthday skirt to notice. I finished this skirt the night before her party and the cupcakes about 20 minutes before the guests arrived! Whew!

I started a tradition when I had baby #1, compiling video footage from the year and putting it to music for a tribute video. I have now done that for each birthday for every child. With three now, that task has become quite a challenge. But as the family gathers around to watch some of these fleeting moments and memories each birthday, I get inspired to maintain my tradition. Wynter's song was "Better Together" by Jack may be listening to it now here on my blog. One of my favorite lines is "love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my why are we here, where do we go, and how come we're so hard?"....

It is hard to believe my sweet cupcake has reached the first birthday milestone. She is so laid back and it is amazing how laid back we've become as parents to a third baby. If half the stuff that is done to her had been done to our first born (being dragged about the house by older siblings, eating dropped morsels of food off the floor, knocked over with "love" by her 2 year old brother, etc. etc), we may have had a heart attack. Happy Birthday Wynter Soleil! You truly are our "winter sun!" and you've make our hearts larger every day!!
