The Cutest Flower backpack

I found some more cuteness while browsing thru etsy this morning. I am working on getting ready for a craft fair tomorrow, but I needed a little break. And how cute is this backpack??!!!
It's always so hard to find cute backpacks but I think this is a winner.
It's from Busy Little Hands Etsy shop.

New Project

For a while now I've been working on this special little project which I have come to really love. It's finally complete and I am SO excited of the result!

I had the idea for some time now and once I saw what I wanted in my mind it was time to do some research. I was able to find a local screen printer who did a great job. It was really important to me to work with someone local and not a big company.

Here is my little project, it's a chic pink tank top with a lovely chandelier. They will be coming soon to my etsy shop. Sizes are from 12 months to 5T. Price is $14.00

Lovely Pettiromper by Chic Baby Rose, I'm in love with the cuteness and I had to share.

I came across this absolutely cutie patutie pettiromper yesterday in the etsy shop Chic Baby Rose
The ruffles, the pink! Oh my goodness it just gets no cuter. I talked to the lovely gal behind this shop and she is truly a gem, so nice. I saw that she was in the same area I'm in and I told her I would make it a must to stop by her little store. She actually does have a "store" outside of her home where she makes her lovely creations. I can't wait to stop by. I'll be getting one of these for my little Mia, as soon as I can figure out what color I want.
Check them out and all the other goodies at her shop too!!

I like surprises and I don't like surprises.
Do: When my husband surprises me with dinner! (Love that!)
Don't: When my 3 year says surpri-ise!!!......usually means mess Mommy has to clean up.

I have tons of ideas right now for my shop and I'm working with several people to make things happen. I'm hoping within the next few weeks, have my shop filled with lots of cute fun and wearable (that's your clue) fun stuff!

So keep checking, I'll be sure to share some fun stuff with you soon

Better than I thought

I finished some projects early this afternoon before it was time to pick up Isabella from kindergarten. So I thought, pretty day let's take some pictures. Here they are, I think they turned out much better than I thought. I bought the chair in the photo at Michael's Craft store yesterday as they were having a great sale. And my intention was to use it as a photo prop. I love the way they little shoes look on this adorable chair.
What do you all think??

What's New?

So for the past two days my laptop does not like google and this also means it doesn't like blogger....blah! I have no idea why I can't get to these sites? I can get to every other site including etsy (thank goodness)

But luckily, hubby's laptop is perfectly fine and I can sneak over and use it to update my blog (like right now) so I thought I would update you all on what I've been up to.

Here are a few pictures of the newest listings to Curly Birdie

Choices, choices and more choices.

This listing is for those that like to have choices, I thought it would be fun if YOU got to select what color crochet Mary Janes you would like.........and Tah Dah!!!!

My other listing is a yellow (love yellow) crochet baby shoe, I called them Julia. I have a friend named Julia and she is such a beautiful person. These shoes remind me of her :)

And finally, my precious Mia

Mia is my youngest joy. She is the baby, 9 months old and the sweetest!! She has a smile on her face from the moment she wakes up, till I put her down to sleep.

She is just so joyful to be around, she makes me smile.

On this day I dressed her in aqua and of course she had to have the matching shoes. Although the aqua and brown made a couple of people think she was a boy that day as we were out and about running errands (Grrr)

Of course I don't see it, but I guess the colors and lack of long hair would suffice. She makes my trio complete. My three girls, all with their own personalities and unique in their own ways. I really couldn't ask for anything more. They cause me inmense joy and drive me crazy all the same :)

My Havana Banana

My middle child is about to turn 3 at the end of this month......"sigh". She is completely filled with energy (seriously). I was thinking the terrible two's were the challenge but with my girls it seems to be the three's. Apparently that is the age when they think they rule the house and "No, I don't want to!" becomes their favorite phrase. Havana is currently using this phrase in full force.

She is in preschool in the mornings 4 days a week. Because she is a January baby she will be in preschool for 3 years! But she does seem to like it, and it's a bit of a Mommy break.

We started calling her Havana Banana for no particular reason, just because it rhymes. And then it stuck. My husband asked me to stop because more and more people starting calling her Banana and not Havana and so we've phased it out a bit.

Here are some pictures of her modeling for me. Let me tell you, that was one work out for me. I must have took oh.... 40 shots,  just in hope of 3 good ones. I couldn't get her to look at the camera, she was busy building with rocks and cooking her plastic chicken in the kitchen. What a work out, I suppose this is also my bodies way of telling me I need to get back into the gym:)

It's time you meet my girls........

I guess the time has come that I present my lovely girls, so one by one (there are three) I'll be showing some random pictures and sharing some cute stories of our everyday.

This is......... ISABELLA

She is my oldest. 5 years old. I took this picture after I picked her up from kindergarten today. She is always so excited with lots and lots to say when I pick her up. She will talk the whole ride home about recess and what the letter of the week was. This week it was the letter "P".
Then she always asks what we did at home. I guess she figures we had some adventure while she was at school.
