We finally got a call from the school I wanted Lauren in. She gets to go to preschool this year. She is so excited to go. If you don't know us very well Lauren is a only child and there are no kids in our neighborhood. So she is pretty excited to go play with other children. I will be probably bawling my eyes out and not know what to do with myself as Lauren stayed home with me all and loved to be in my sewing room while I sewed. But she needs to go to school and be around other children her age:) So I will probably be MIA as I will be power sewing for her:) Tonight is meet the teacher so hope it goes well as Lauren is shy around adults she doesn't know but that is a good thing.:)

Lauren says where is that big bad wolf

Lauren got the chance to work with by Sandy of i_mbornagain. I wanted to share Lauren as Little Red Riding Hood. If you have not seen Sandy's work it is Fab not a stitch out of place I was in ahhh when I seen it. I have to say I think Lauren makes the best Little Red Riding Hood there has ever been:)

So I have been on the hunt for hot pink shoes. I always have a hard time with Lauren as it seems every year her size is always sold out. But I wanted to share some places I found that I love so maybe you can find some cool shoes like I have found. The first place I was shocked to find cool shoes at a great price.


Then there is this place that has tons of shoes and they ship overnight for FREE


I have ordered from both of these places and they are fast! Plus they have shoes for mom also;) So if you have any fantastic places that are a good source let me know:)

What does the say to make to you?

So I have had this fabric for a little over a year and I really like it. I pick it up and goingto make something but then I don't know what to make. So I ask you what jumps in your mind to make with it?


Sorry I have not posted in a couple days I have been sewing this great OOAK outfit(had just enough material for it) it was going to be a 5 piece set. Well say was as yesterday morning I am in my sewing room getting some things together. I turn around and Lauren is hacking my outfit with scissors. I had a model all lined up and everything. I yell Lauren NO and she starts crying as I scared her then I look and I almost cry. But I think I might be able to make Lauren a 2 piece set out of it. I usually keep the scissors up so she doesn't cut her hair but I was to tired and forgot to put them up.Boy there is always something going on here at my house LOL

You know I think I am loving being groupless right now. There is no pressure and no drama and nobody getting on my nerves. I can make what I want if I want to do a launch I can always guest right. Yep thinking I am really like it LOL. So I have been sewing I am using a pale lavendar with a vintage feel to it something I have made before but each piece went with something else. It will be a OOAK as I have been cleaning out my fabric stash and I only had enough of the fabric to make one set. So is there any groupless designers out there that is loving it as much as me?

Locked Out

So yesterday I go outside and try some new things on my camera filters etc. I left the back door open incase Lauren wanted to come out. Well I forgot to unlock the knob Lauren comes out and yes closed the door. I was hot decided to go in and yep couldn't open the door. So I go around front get the key that is hidden and thinking I can get in the front door. Wrong hubby locked the dead bolt. I call hubby didn't answer cell. Call his shop and Mrs Debra answered I tell her I am locked out of the house. She said Hubby was at the accountant's office. Finally I was dying in the heat and Lauren was to. I walk barefoot down the street to our neighbors and thank goodness their son was home so we got to cool off. Hubby called yes he was not happy as he has his shop 40 min from or house. Well finally he made it home and let us in. Lauren then told me she did it so Daddy will come home early. I would not dare tell hubby that!

Lauren Won

Well Lauren won we did the sprinkler. Well I should say she did I just took pictures. She had a blast.


All you designers that are tring to get noticed might can relate with me. You creat this fab design and think o.k. this will be the one that makes me and everyone will love? But then you get nothing no bids no favorites nothing! You get so frustrated and about to through you hands up and give it up. Well I am at that spot and I told hubby last night if that suit doesn't get a bid that is it I give up. He said nooooooo I will not let you give up you are to good at what you do to give up. Hold your head up keep plugging away a group you want to be in will come. Gotta love hubby he encourages me sometimes. Also gotta love one of my best friends Cree of bowznstuff_boutique. I feel down I always IM or e-mail her and she always makes me feel better. I think I will start calling her my momma bird as she tucks me under her wing and helps me along the way. One day I will make it to her Country and see her and Hettie

Taking it Easy Today

Today will be a relaxing day for us. Lauren wants to play in the sprinkler I want to relax in the pool. We shall see who gets to do what we want which she will probably win as she will say Pleaseeee Mommy and I am such a sucker when she does that LOL. It has just been so hot here that it looks foggy and has been around 105 degrees all week. So I will have pictures of what we do today later

The Model

So my Lauren models for designers on ebay and websites. So we attempt to do some modeling yesterday for a designer on ebay. Well it didn't go so good. Anything and everything went wrong. We were doing o.k. for awhile untill there was a huge dog came in our yard and had it's hair up on it's back and barking at us. Lauren is scared to death of dogs and I have to admit I am scared of big dogs. Lauren climbed up my leg and I am trying to hold the camera and Lauren and scare this dog out of our way to get to the door. Well I scared the dog away. Then after that well the picture explains what kind of pictures I got.She just wanted to jump LOL. Today is a reshoot.
