My little shop ( is doing pretty well! I have had just about 240 sales in the last year! I'm so happy i can make some money doing something i enjoy so much! Thank you to all my wonderful customers :)

And here are a few fabrics just sitting in the sewing room waiting to be made into some cute shoes! And i have some secret ultra cute Valentines fabric in the mail right now for an Team EtsyBaby January Challenge, where i will be making a pair of Valentines shoes...

And now lastly some very exciting news!.....


We are pregnant and expecting our second child July 2010 :) Logan will be 2 years and a few months when the new baby comes and this time we are hoping for a girl!! I'm feeling good so far!

Review - TinyWiggles - Wash Mitts :)

We recieved our Tiny Wiggles ( ) ( wash mitts in the mail a few weeks ago and have been trying them out! And let me say they are amazing! Super soft and cozy and make bath time a breeze!

Logan is always moving so i pop the mitt on and scrub him down, get under his arm pits and behind his ears! When he's a little older he can even wear the mitt and help me clean himself!

When we are all done, i hang it up next to Mommy and Daddys towels and throw it in the wash with the laundry on Mondays :) They wash super easy as well, which is a must for any mom, just throw them in with the other towels and then in the drier! They come out super fuffy :)

Wash mitts by Tiny Wiggles are such a great and usefull item to have! A very practical baby gift for any new mom!

Please check back for my Tiny Wiggles giveaway and you could win your own pair of wash mitts!

New shoes!! Mary Janes for ladies :)

These are my new shoes :)
I have been wanting to make ladies shoes to go along with my baby shoes, maybe like a mom and baby set for the hospital bag? So i have been testing out this pair today, and i have come to see that the bottom is a little short and always feels like it's going to fall off...even though it hasn't, and the snaps on the side are a BAD idea...maybe i sit weird, but hurt like heck when sitting cross legged! So i will tweak the pattern and some up with something even more pefect :)

I've been tagged! :)

I was TAGGED by GemmaJoy!
So here are the rules...The tag is ALWAYS & NEVERS • list "5 fashion always-es"• {things you always like or cannot do without}• for you personally• conversely, list "5 fashion nevers"• {things you would not be caught dead in}• for you personally• then tag 3 bloggers
1. I always need to make sure my butt looks good in my pants!...i would never want to have a droopy bum!
2. I love jeans! and unless i'm at work, i always wear jeans!
3. Cute earings are a must! I don't wear much jewlery...well nothing but my wedding rings and earings, so i like to have cute ones!
4. Keep it simple! i like classics, i'm not much for all the trends...i could never pull off tights!
5. Less is more with the make-up...always natural!

1. Have a pany line showing! ahhhh!
2. I'm a mom, yes i know, but i vow to never wear the "mom" jeans!...yes i think we all know what they are!
3. Go braless...i just couldn't do it, seems very uncomfortable to me!
4. Wear clothes that are too tight or a size too small!
5. Have matching outfits with your significant other.

New styles! Hazel May!


I have added a new type of shoes to my shop! Cute little MARY JANES! And i am in the works of making ladies sizes as well! (actually right now, i'm am wearing the pair for me i made last night, just to check them out and see what changes need to be made...already found the backs need to be higher!)

I wanted to give HazelMay on etsy a plug, because well i love her shop so much! she has amazing fabric choices, and what feels better than supporting a mom! please go and check her out! she is super friendly and makes amazing things. I bought a scarf for my son, and a cute little apple burp cloth for our next baby :)

I love bumJoy's!

I bought my son Logan 4 bumJoy's - red, blue, orange and grey and they are just amazing! The colors are so vibrant and the diapers fit great. The snaps are easy to get done up, even with a wiggly 11 month old. I would highly recommend these diapers, they are priced nicely! and what feels better than supporting a stay at home mom so she can stay home with her little one! I haven't used one overnight yet, but i have through a 2 hour nap, and everything went well, she gives you 2 inserts so you can double up!

My new cloth diapers!

(check out for more awesome cloth diapers just like this!)
Okay, so i have two cloth diapers now, and two more in the mail! Logan is almos 11 1/2 months old and i've just got the urge to start collecting cloth diapers for whenever we have our next baby and to use on him right now! So with every pair of shoes i sell on my little etsy shop ( i will buy a cloth diaper! Monday morning we had two disposable diapers left in our house...we didn't have any dissastors until i could run out and get another bag, but i was just thinking if we had cloth diapers there would never be that situation if you keep the washing up. So i'm going to start my journey into cloth diapering and hopefully by our next baby i will be a pro and highly knowledgable :)
