A few of my favorite things...

All over the house I have little scraps of paper with words to live by. A cute saying I've heard on tv, or a quote Ive read in a magazine. Last year I met a sweet woman neamed Heather who can make these quotes come to life with her Vinyl Wall Art.
You've seen it everywhere; children's room decor, Home is where the heart is sayings... I LOVE IT! I found Heather again this last winter showcasing her vinyl and she was personalizing Christmas ornaments. They were absolutely fantastic! My 8 year old son Damian had one done with his name in a flaming font.
In the last year I've bought about 4 designs from Heather. I finally put one up in my family room and the room finally seemed more personal. It went on so easy and STRAIGHT! HA! Now when I fianlly decide on a paint color for the front room and my sewing studio, then I will put up the rest. IF you are interested in ordering from Heather, here is a link to her site. Another thing, her turn around time is SO FAST!

Happy Birthday Dear Joey...

Today my younger brother Joey turns 23. i may be his oldest sibling, but he truly inspires me. He is FREE.
When I think of what he does, the way he lives and what he has to offer the world, I am in awe. It makes me think of my life as a little bubble and him a big bouncy ball, capable of taking on any obstacle. He has a quick wit, is charming and handsome. Nothing at all like the annoying little brother I grew up with (SORRY ABOTU DRESSING YOU UP AS A PRINCESS!). Today, he spent most of his day at college, studying, going to Starbucks and feeling uncelebrated.

for a pic of joey and his big sis LORA, scroll to the bottom of the screen. I think this may be the only pic that I have of us as adults. I just pulled it out of a drawer and took a picture of a picture! LOVE IT! :)


Just when I thought it was almost spring we get another snowfall. Now I don't usually mind the snow, exceptfor when Ruben has to drive over the pass to Seattle, and when I have to try and convince my customers that my newest sets are for spring when there is snow in the yard!
So here are a few pics, I really love the comfort of the cherry knit set. The knit is absolutely LUXE! This is available in a size 2T to an 8. Kyla is a finicky little girl and half of the stuff I make for her she has some knit picky thing to say. Wrong color, she doesn't like flowers, where is the pink.... but my spring collection she is really into.

Another thing... When I am trying to click on the blog thingy add pciture, it won't let just goes to saving. Anyone wanna give me a tip, it's flipping annoying me!!
