Daddy and the Girls

This weekend was the annual Daddy/Daughter dance so I couldn't resist showing the family! The girls had so much fun, even kept their dresses secret from Daddy until they walked down that night. It was absolutely priceless to see them drive away for their special night. Tyler kept asking me why Moms and brothers weren't invited and really wasn't satisfied with my response that it was only for girl scouts and their fathers. One day he'll get it! For now, he gets to stay home with me, fold towels & mountains of laundry, play monopoly and read books. Stellar evening for all right!

Soire'e Bouquet Twirly Skirts....just in time for Summer!

Both of my girls have very strong preferences towards color. I do my best when I carve out time to make things for them to create pieces that reflect their own personal tastes. Over Spring Break, we head out to visit Grandma & Grandpa at the lake for some lazy time in the sun and I actually packed my sewing machine and some fabric! Some people like to bring a book when they get a little break, I bring a sewing machine :) I had been wanting to do something coordinated for my girls and gave them the chance to pick their own color palette. I'll be offering just a few of these in my Etsy shop soon. I love how they turned out, very bright, Summery and girly. You can find them in my store now.

East meets West....a little Asian American Fusion

I sound like a new show on the Food Network don't I? Well, it really is just implying the love of Asian culture that I'm feeling right now. I love their bold use of color and I'm working on creating some pieces that take on a whole new feeling with a whole lot of personality and color! I've just finished my first piece and with any luck, will get some photos soon. I have been having a lovely time diving into some new fabrics that all start with an Asian flare. Keep watching and I'll be posting more soon! a photo of this one just doesn't do it justice as the main skirt really feels like it needs to be on a canvas, showcased as a piece of art. I consider it a walking piece of art, perfect for a little girl :-) Heading to Etsy soon!

Went to Disney!!

Well, I didn't go to Disney but these 2 little ones did! Molly and Maddie, you are just too cute for words. Their mom requested these matching outfits and then she had some outside help put the monogrammed names over the initials that I had appliqued on. Very cool, love what you did! I'm sure your trip to the magical Kingdom was fantastic. As always, click on any photo if you'd like to enlarge.

Customer cutie....Birthday Girl Grace

Thank you so much for sharing your photos. I love seeing your little ones on their birthdays, trips to Disney, special photos that they've had done, or just a fun family day where you happened to have a camera in hand! It's a wonderful feeling to see the photos and all the places you all have traveled with your kiddos wearing some of the clothing I've made. Thank you for allowing LTDK to come along and thank you for taking the time to share your photos! Here's some new ones I received. Grace just turned 2 on Valentines Day. Isn't she ADORABLE all the way down to her little braids? I can tell from the photo's, she's stolen her daddy's heart. Grace's mom decided to tweak a Valentine's set I'd done and do it in this fabric combo, I love how it turned out and seeing it on her little one makes it all that much cuter. You know I love those apple red converse shoes. You are never too young to sport a pair of those. Happy Birthday Grace!
