I also just finished another store design!

Introducing South Shore Fashions!!!

The owner, Jolanda, was wonderful to work with! Is it odd that once I'm done designing these stores that I miss my clients??? Check it out and let me know what you think! Thank you Jolanda for trusting me with your baby!

For all who have emailed me through my website or at, I am answering all emails today! There are over 700 emails so I will go as quickly as I can!! But I promise that I care that you've taken the time to shoot me an email and will be posting your messages over at the webstore soon! Also, for those of you who qualified for the free bow, I will be contacting you soon to get your shipping information!

That's it for now,..on my way out the door to visit a couple of my very best girlfriends. My brother has so wonderfully offered to watch both kiddo's for me today so I'm going out on the town. I am wearing some ADORABLE boots! I think they deserve a spot on the blog too!

Christmas Wish List

Let's talk presents!!! What is Santa leaving under your tree this year? How about a Red Ryder BB gun?

Little Man is going to be so excited this year. It's his first Christmas where he'll actually get to open presents. I heard through the grapevine that Santa is bringing a drum set. Santa has it in for me but I have to admit, I'm actually excited about it. Little Man LOVES music. Well, I've kind of forced him into it. I always imagined having babies that loved music like their Momma so since birth I've surrounded the kiddo's with it! Forming a musical band is a daily occurrence at our house. I think I have a prodigy on my hands with little man. He's good! You should see him with a harmonica. Santa's on a tight budget this year so I kindly did some research for him and found a toddler drum set for $20 at Wal-Mart. It's the complete set, even with a little stool to sit on. Can you imagine little man walking, make that tumbling, down the stairs Christmas morning to a drum set wrapped in a big bow.

Santa's also considering a train table for little man. Again, I assisted and took to doing my bargain hunting that I'm notorious for. Santa's lost without me I tell you. Found a ton on eBay. Found the most magnificent one of all as a matter of fact. It comes with over a 100 pieces of thrills and chills but the best part,'s all made on an espresso coffee table with pull out storage drawer. I'm getting goose bumps. Problem,'s way too expensive even on eBay. I noticed "this" seller had quite a few and I figured, way could this seller get so many and put up an investment like that. I started researching drop shippers that supply this table which led me to find it was actually a Kidkraft table. My mouth started to drool,...say kidkraft and I'm all in. Did more research and found where "this" seller was getting the goods. COSTCO!!! So I found it for way less and I managed to find a Costco coupon. Go ahead Santa, eat a big Christmas Eve dinner. You can afford it! My only hiccup is that I don't have a Costco membership and it cost $50 to get one. They want me to "join their club." I don't want to have to pay to be in a club. I only did that in high school when the braces, headgear, bionaters and retainers were holding me back. These days you should want me in your club because I am so witty and irresistible to be around. But my good girlfriend has one so,...MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Baby girl wants a computer. What happened to a box of Crayola's??? A computer? Really? It's an obvious observation that Mommy spends way too much time on the computer. Maybe I should play outside with the kids more??? But where am I now,...on the computer. Baby girl is amazing at the computer. She's 4 and can get from one Internet page to the next and play every free online Disney game there is. I left Photoshop open the other day on my computer and I came into the office to find baby girl working it like a pro! She had chosen different brushes to paint with, brushes I didn't even know existed. She figured out how to open a new file and everything. It was quite impressive. So it looks like Santa is going to have to figure out how to get a desktop for baby girl. I told him to try Craig's List so we shall see. That's right, Santa's elves now shop on eBay and Craig's List.

Now where I need your help is a gift for hubby. What in the world do you ladies give your husbands????? Every year I try and every year I fail. Last year was my worst. I actually got him a diaper bag. Go ahead,...laugh away. It is pretty funny now looking back. I thought I could get him a manly diaper bag with all the necessities in it. He got me back by giving me a vacuum. No joke,..I got a vacuum. I already had a vacuum. That was a tough smile to fake!

So give me some ideas!!!!! I need them. I'd like to actually get him something that he would genuinely be excited about!!

What do I want? I want a leg lamp. Call me trashy. I still have a little bit of hillbilly left in me from my Arkansas days and I really want a leg lamp. I want the leg lamp to arrive to my house in a large pine box labeled fragile. I want to put it in my window for all to see in it's glory. Christmas isn't Christmas without a leg lamp.

What's on your wish list?

The day is coming. I can feel it. The day when I can finally take off my arm floaties in the waters of the graphic world!
I completed my first eBay store design!!! As my friend Amo would say,..."YIP SKIP!"

So without further ado, I happily introduce
I couldn't have asked for a better client. Ever so patient and understanding. Thank you Shannon for choosing me to design your store!
Shannon is a Mom of 2 and owns the eBay store Dress My Boys. If you have boys, this is the place to shop. I am very excited because soon she will be offering custom made applique tops that will incorporate the theme of her store. Owls are big this season and I am on the top of the waiting list to get some appliqued Owl shirts for little man!
If you want to support fellow Mommas go check out her store and tell her I sent you!
I had such a fun time designing this store and learned a great deal along the way. Isn't life wonderful when it allows you to do the things you love!
Thanks Shannon and happy eBaying!

Beware, Obligatory Mommy Blog Ahead!

What's the point of a blog if you can't brag about your babies! That's right, sit down on the sofa and watch enthusiastically as I show you the slide show of my precious babies on Halloween!

Say "Cheese" little man!

Every year we visit the same pumpkin patch. My entire self lights up all in a glow during the holiday season and this is the tradition that's starts it all in motion. The Holidays are the closest we come to perfect!

Hayride time. Get a kick out of those red plastic sunglasses I'm wearing. Why is it the only pair you can ever find are the most hideous ones you own and have no idea how you acquired. I think I'm messing with baby girl's hair in this photo,'s a never ending saga.

Trying to avoid a tantrum or even worse Little Man throwing himself out of a moving barrel I opt to fit my adult body into the child size ride. May I also point out I'm the only Mommy on the ride while the others sit comfortably and watch.

Halloween night has finally arrived! Have you ever seen a prettier Tinker Belle? Of course you haven't! That's MY baby!

Have you ever met Donna Reed? We did and even went to her house!

Peter Pan too! Will someone please tell Mommy she has my hat on backwards!

Got to get candy, must have candy, need candy now. I can almost taste it.

Little Man's first time trick or treating. Wouldn't have missed it for the world!

The Perfect Halloween, betcha!
