Favorites on Friday

Favorite photo of Daddy and the girls going home after a great Birthday Party with cousins

Been a little bit MIA this week.  Did you miss me as much as I missed you? :)

I couldn't let another Friday go by without showing you a few of my favorites. Let's get started shall we?

Loved how the woman behind Obessively Stitching created all kinds of new shirts out of dollar store shirts.

These "Spread the Love" Jam labels are great!  Now to make some jam!

Speaking of labels. Cathe Holden over at Just Something I Made shares a ton of awesome labels for the kitchen...seriously so great!

Loved these Fisher Boy shorts Katy from No Big Dill shares on Mary Jane's and Galoshes seriously so cute for both boys and girls.

Awesome Lunch Bag Tutorial round up over at one of my favorites Train to Crazy.

Just loved this vintage covered clothes pin tutorial...this blog is a new favorite too.

This bike makeover reminded me of when I was a kid.  My parents made over a bike for me with my initials on and everything....they even added a basket.

Elsie Marie shares a fun noodle craft...I think my girls would love this one.

And I want to learn how to knit just so I can do all of the projects in this book but especially the first hat...ADORABLE!

And last but not least, found through my cousin Thelma's blog...Catalog Living is a new favorite to make me LOL.

Hope this finds you having a great Friday and hope you have an even better weekend!


Favorites on Friday

One of my favorite moments from this week.  The twins going to pick veggies instead of rocks :)

The list is long today my friends!  I'd love it if you would share some of your favorites with me as well.

OK, let's start with this one, you may have seen some of these Finnish mama's photo's around the blogosphere.  I saw them a while back on Design Mom and then my sister alerted me to them again.  You have to scroll down.  Most of my favorites are toward the middle and end.

Speaking of Gabby from Design Mom.  Have you seen her sixth baby's birth announcement.  So original and adorable.

Then there is my creative sister again.  She turned some old shoes new for her daughter.  Totally fabulous.

This costume idea made me laugh out loud.

And our good friend Charity over at Indietutes generously shares a free dress pattern that I'm excited to try!  Thanks Charity!

This post from Katy at No Big Dill was so inspiring to me yesterday and today.  You won't regret taking a minute to read it.

My friend Natalie shared a really fun idea.  A family t-shirt for their reunion.  So fun.

And, oh man am I excited about these free alphabet flashcards from Jill at Homemade by Jill.  She is so generous in sharing them with us!

Speaking of generosity. Tara at EASY is sharing a free pattern for an adorable crocheted doll.

And Ellen at the Long Thread did an awesome Back to School project roundup.  So many GREAT projects listed.

Oh yeah and I love EVERYTHING on this new blog find...just great design and beauty.

OK that's all I've got.  Hope you enjoy and like I said before, I'd love for you to share some of your favorites with us!

Happy Weekend

PHEW...I Have Been BUSY!

I am so happy to be able to say that the boy dolls and outfits are ready to purchase in the shop!  Here's a little preview:

The Fall Line for BOYS (these outfits come with any of the packages):

The Folk/Fairy Tale Line for BOYS:

And of course I couldn't leave the girls out.  Here is the Fall Line for the girls:

I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for Autumn to come! Today I saw mums at Costco and almost squealed with excitement. These outfits make me want to go shopping...oh to be able to just draw what I wanted and not have to hunt for it!  Maybe that's why I love paper dolls so much!

Oh yes and those of you who left comments helping out with the boys hair, please email me to claim your free boy doll and outfits!

The Girl in The Mirror - True Beauty School

I am over at my cousin's new blog today.  

Girl in Mirror by Norman Rockwell

We've all been to "Beauty School" in one way or another haven't we?  For me and most of us, beauty school started as long ago as elementary school, maybe even sooner...read on HERE

This and That

Hello to you all.  Wow, thanks for all of the kind responses to the Potty Training Post!  I must say your kind words of wisdom and encouragement were so helpful (still are....I've read them many times).  To tell you the truth I did feel a little bit of self-imposed pressure to get the girls started.  My mom-in-law was so kind to offer to take two while I focused on one for a couple of days. Since she is a teacher and won't be available during the school year, last week was kind of our last chance for her help...so I just wanted to check potty training off of my to-do list...HA!  I am still learning I guess that toddlers could care less about to-do lists.  Anyway, Maisy is still interested in going potty so I've decided to stop pushing it with Laurel.  It's not worth it.  I'm working with Maisy and she is enjoying it for the most part.  Laurel usually wants to try when Maisy does but I never force it.  I am using M&M's and that seems to be working really well with Maisy.  Thanks again for your kind, non-judgemental words.  I really do appreciate them.

OK, lets change the subject shall we? ;)

Those of you who ordered the August Outfit of the Month, hope you enjoyed it.  For those who didn't, here's a little sneak peak:

I've been having a ball designing two fall lines (both girls and boys) and a line of Fairy/Folk Tale outfits for the boys.  Can't wait to show you!  The boys should be up and ready to purchase by the end of the week.

That's all for now.  Thanks for being so cool and I hope this post finds you having a great day.
