Thanks Cookie!

Yes, this was November and I'm only spotting it now. : )

Oh December

You've come and gone so quickly and I'm ok with that. December is always such a full month isn't it?
There was a craft show..which is where I left off oh so long ago...

A wonderful visit to NYC for my niece Gabriella's Cast Screening of Doubt.
So much fun!!!

The writer 'John Patrick Shanley' was there.
I have a picture somewhere. And we had to stroll by the wonderfully decorated Macy's windows

Making Marzipan snowmen to bring to while visiting for the Holidays.
Attending Holiday dinners.

And kids Bday parties, cheerleading dinners....

shopping for Christmas and Hannukah gifts......... here's mine : ) J.Crew Guava metallic tote.... yum

And there were about 4 other Birthdays, and we could go on and on. But I'm glad it's coming to an end and so looking forward to a NEWYEAR!!!!! Of course, my ONE BIG wish is for a new job!!!! So let's hope 2009 brings it!!!!

Hi there...
Yes, I should know better by now to commit full fledge to a date? Right. Well, amongst other happenings I have a sick little girl today. But I will get a listing in the shop, so that the tee's can atleast be 'made to order'. So I will get that in today.
Be back soon!

EDIT: OK, there is a listing in the shop!!! Thank you : )

New Re-designed kids T's!

OK, so how about something new and fun to share!!!!
Angel LOVE Tee's
Here's my scrumptious recipe:
1. I start off with a plain crisp new KIDS T-shirt (doesn't have to be crisp : )
2. I then cut out the Angelic wings from a great selection of vintage or new fabric designs
3. Cut out letters to spell L. O. V. E. and hand stitch them on
4. Sew on a super cute lace doily, on the front of the Tee
there you have your Re-designed ANGEL LOVE Tee.......made with lots of love for you!!!!

I'm working on these T's right now and they will be in the shop FRIDAY, NOV. 14th.
how about a little peek!

My little tester is trying hers out!!!

(photos: by PinkyBrownInc.) these are sepia toned photos...will share the colors in shop.


If you think you'd be interested in one for your littlest or biggest, you can leave a comment or email me on what sizes...otherwise I'm going to make a variety of sizes 3T- 12 to start off with.



It's a beautiful day!

I am so proud of our country! So very proud!!!
Here is the collection of newspapers I picked up this morning! Uh oh..I just noticed that I'm missing the NY Times! Gotta go get it!!

I was so freaking excited about voting today? You too? Did anyone else sneak a cell pic like I did. I was afraid to get in trouble. I really wanted to take a bunch of pics, for example when signing in, when they give you the ticket, etc. But I was too chicken and didn't want to hold up the line. But THIS DAY could be historic!!! I'm sooo hoping it is!

And my daughter came with me, which was wonderful! There she is standing by the sign.

New cards by Design her gals

New calling/ Biz cards from Design-her-gals! I really could of spent hours upon hours on their site creating different girls with great outfits, so I did this one rather quickly and just stuck with it! Otherwise, indecision would have gotten the best of me!

B-Day presents.....yum

Here are a couple, well actually a few of my B-day presents, I knew you would want to see!

This 1st photo is a 'Dottie Angel' slip. This is her photo by the way. The half slip one on top is mine. And let me tell you it is even more beautiful in person!!! So lovely.

This photo is all Anthro goods except for the obvious iPod! I was thrilled to pick up a copy of Tricia Guild's Pattern book, that I wanted forever, only now on sale. And these 2 great cropped jackets one in a Pale pink and one in brown. And that colorful number on the left is a really comfy and cute robe!!!

Hello Friday!!!

This is the cover of the Neiman Marcus Home Book, I love the colors and symmetry of it!
We have a little Halloween event to attend this evening, it's a kids thing. We have Cheerleading tomorrow. This is also a Birthday weekend for me, so I'm looking forward to that. Even though rain is predicted. I'll have to squeeze in some Bday shopping too!

love PUMPKIN picking!!!

Last weekend we made it out to pick some Pumpkins! Even though it was so late in Oct, there were soooo many great pumpkins!

New pillow

Here's my latest crafty endeavor, notice how I haven't even finished the giraffe but I somehow move on to something totally different. Hate that. But I love the pillow!
May have to make some for the shop!

Target LOVE

I really do love this store. You can find the cutest things, such as this Welcome Hook!!!

I've been wanting a hook or hooks to hang behind my living room door since forever but they were always 'boring' or 'plain' when I saw this one, I loved it instantly. For #16.99.. you can't beat it!

In the works....

This is something I was making today. A little giraffe drawing and then a matching stuffy.
I loved the idea, but the execution of making this stuffed giraffe is taking way more time than I expected... and as you can see is still not finished. His head still needs it's spots and a face would be nice. But not tonight, I'm beat.
Off to watch some tele and catch some ZZZZZZ.

to tall boots, long scarves, knee socks and really cute fall outfits!

Books make a perfect canvas!

A new piece, painted on an old book cover! It's obvious of my obsession with books.
This one might be mine... not sure yet : )
