Hello Kitty Anyone?

What little girl doesn't love and adore Hello Kitty? Let's face it, she's been around for a while and is just as popular today as she was in the past. Just think of how cute this apron would look all rolled up in an Easter basket next to hair clips

Don't forget the chocolate's this Easter!!!
check out these shops for some alluring delights :)

So Many Ideas....Giveaway!!!

Being a person who loves to craft, I constantly have tons of ideas rolling around in this brain of mine just exploding and trying to get out. Only problem is...I don't always have the time to create the ideas that I have, so I'm wondering - what is it that people like most in my shop? What's your favorite part of my shop? Do you enjoy the variety, or perhaps you stop by just to check out one thing?

The more feedback the better as this will help me to move forward with my shop. I will randomly choose a winner from the thoughts and suggestions listed. The winner will get an item (FREE :) ) based on what they like best out of my shop!

Night Before School

Tomorrow my "Little" Man starts his first day of Pre-K, which means today we are off to a Picnic at Amma & Papa's (my mom & dad) house. This means 8 of my parents grandkids will be in school this year, ranging from Pre-K to 7th grade!! Wow, time sure does fly by! Next year my daughter will be the only one not in school!

With tomorrow being the first day of school, I need to add the finishing touches to my son's art smock, and then list a picture for the Etsy shop! I have to admit, I wasn't really sure about the Lizard fabric that he picked out, but I got some really bright green fabric for the back an some blue ribbon for the straps and voila! It looks so darn cute and Jake loves it!!! Now I just have to figure out how I want to put his name on it and we'll be good to go!

Sunday Night Craze

It's Sunday night and I'm at the computer and sewing machine trying to finish the last of my orders from the last week. Making everything handmade with a sewing machine is fun, takes time but gives me something to look back at and say - "I made that" with a little pride.

We went to our family reunion today and we took prizes for the kids Chinese Auction. I took handmade items - a Wow wow wubbzy bag and a cute kids apron. Hearing all of the great compliments from family when they realized I'd actually made them was nice and made me want to get right back into my sewing nook and get back to work.

I'm hoping that this week I can get several more kids aprons sewn, and am actually thinking about trying my skills at a pillowcase dress or two. Who knows we'll see :)
