Friday's Fabulous Finds @ Craft Jr

I know this isn't sewing related, but I do partake in a TON of crafts.  The weather here in St. Louis has been amazing and all the tulips are out and trees are full.  I have been planting all my fresh herbs that I've been growing inside for a few weeks.  I really wanted to put some nice plant markers in them, but just couldn't find the ones I wanted to use.  So I finally found this tutorial and Free Printable from Craft Jr.

This is what hers looks like...

I've had mine sitting this morning, and will update with pictures when they finally dry. 

Have fun...this weekend is all about planting for me!  The sewing machine is just going to have to be patient. :)

Happy Birthday Baby Girl

So March has been an amazingly busy month.  The first weekend was my little girls 3rd birthday, followed by Spring Break and a visit from 6 of our family members, and ending with a boutique fashion show that I was helping sew things for.  So now that I can breathe, I thought I'd share with you some of the photos from the birthday party. 

We took my little one and 2 of her friends to the Salon for manicures and pedicures and princess updo's.  They were so happy to be the center of attention!

Then we came home to the princess party!   There was A LOT of Tulle. 

The Cupcakes were purple with Hot Pink icing.  Of course there had to be a tutu cupcake stand as well.  I ran out of time to do the cupcake wrappers, so I ordered them from this ETSY store.

 These were the gift bags I made for the girls as well.  They were filled with lip gloss, nail polish, rings, bracelets, candy ring pops, and stickers.
I also had each girl Petal Filled Tutus and matching boas, a princess wand, and tiara to wear.

So all in all, they had a blast and felt like princesses.  The girls are still talking about it.  Its so much easier to plan a party when there are only 3 kids.

July 4th is just around the corner!

Fourth of July Bubble Dress-Lola Lou  Flower Power

Last year I fell in LOVE with this fabric I found for July 4th.  I only bought a few yards.  When I listed it on ETSY I sold the only 2 dresses I could make and couldn't find the fabric ANYWHERE after that.  My daughter was devistated to say the least!  I saw it in the store today, and bought the ENTIRE bolt.  Limited quantities available, so hurry and get your order in.

Don't forget to check out the matching FLOWER power patriotic bow that matches.

Being a military wife, July 4th is one of my favorite holidays, so I am hopefully going to launch a few more dresses to the holiday line.  Keep you posted!
