M2M GAP Mediterranean "Years Gone By" Ruffle Capris

I just loved the green the Gap used in their Mediterranean line and think these two look smashing together. Adding a cute kid is certainly like the icing on a cake! Spent a little more time with Scott the other day grabbing a few more photos of new pieces. To some folks they see a fence in need of a new paint job, he drives by and sees a great backdrop of color. love these! Grabbed the little lovely one here and she did her typical magic. I think I read a description of this fabric stirring up memories of the days when folks had all their clothes pinned to a clothesline. It definitely makes me think of the "Years Gone By" I'll be adding them to my Etsy store soon. Here's one of my favorite ones. These don't show the pants the best, you'll have to go find them in my store to see a broad range of her shots but I just love her face in this particular one so wanted to share. Thank you Nancy for borrowing her to me!

Customer Photos make my day!

Check out these 2 beauties! Yep, some la*tee*da*kids apron skirts made it to Egypt in front of a pyramid and even with a Sphynx. Okay, so the cutest part of the picture might be that lil belly you just want to reach through your screen to grab, I totally agree. They are both so stinkin' cute and it made my day to see this. Gotta love those rainboots too!!! Hhhmmm, what do you think she is thinking??? I'd just love to know. Something about that stance with that head tilt, something good is going through her toddler brain, don't ya think? Oh how I hope to put some more stamps on my passport and get out to see more of the world. For now, stuff like this is pretty cool from folks who live around the globe. Thanks for sharing Jan, your babies are beautiful!!! Photo day tomorrow, can't wait to share a few more things!

Sneak Peek of some new ruffles "Years Gone By"

I know I've said it a few times, but I'll say it just one more, I love this Darla line of fabric from Tanya Whelan. I also loved the Mediterranean line when it came out from the Gap. Gap's color scheme was a bold combination of navy, white and green. I thought it'd be fun to pull out the kelly green swing top they remade this year, and create some la*tee*da*kids custom, old fashioned floral ruffles to pair with the top. This print just reminds me of the years gone by so that's what they'll be called. Just add a cute kid and I think it's a winning combination! We're trying to get some photos and will be adding them to my Etsy store soon. Keep checking back to my blog, I've got a giveaway I'm planning for mailing list subscribers. stay tuned!

Back home, now back to reality!

Hubby and I had a nice little getaway to Mexico where the sun always seems to shine and the water is crystal blue. We're both refreshed and getting back into gear this week. I dove straight into what any Mom would start with, the mountain of laundry that I had waiting here from the kids and then the stuff I brought home. Man, 5 people sure can generate some dirty clothes! I may never get to leave my laundry room this week! Now onto fun stuff. My machines were both at the mechanic getting their annual tune-up. They think I'm so disciplined since I bring them in yearly at the same time just like I'm told. Truth be known, we go out of town same time every year so it's the one time I feel like I can be without them and they deserve a little R&R too right! The sewing machines are home, I'm home, lots of new orders came in and I'm ready to get cracking. Thank you to those that share your photos, it sure does make my day to get those in my inbox. I can't wait to make some new things for some new moms that have found me along the way who have chosen to dress their girls in a few of my pieces. I'm getting back to it this week so hopefully will have things heading out on their way soon! I've also got my eye on some new fabric prints, ooohhh are they pretty! Sure do want some time to play around with that stuff too!

A fun little video courtesy of Scott!

How much fun is this? My creative juices are certainly fed when someone combines their talent with my own craft. This sort of feels like a mini commercial for La*tee*da*kids. Scott made this short video for me and I just love it. YOU HAVE TO CLICK on the picture shown below of Olivia looking cute in her cowgirl boots and the Olivia dress and you'll be directed to the short music video. The music is the perfect compliment as well. Check it out, what do you think? New designs coming soon!
