Gingerbread Girl

Here is the debut of the Gingerbread Girl Tee.
I love this design and can't wait to do more!
For boys--no bow, of course!

*story behind the Gingerbread girl*
My husband and I were sitting in the living and i was talking to him about my Christmas line. Since this is my first time doing Christmas tees I was asking him what he thought i should do as a Christmas tee. He said what about gingerbread men and gingerbread girls with bows?!? Ohhh, how i love this man! Thanks for being my secret sewing partner babe!! :)

Gary and ishes!

Meet Kolton's new pets...
Gary the snail and ishes (yes "ishes", that what he calls fish)
Ok, you can't really see them in this picture but they are in there, 3 fish and a snail.
This was Kolton's Halloween gift from his Nona. We have had many laughs over this new addition to our home. He has feed them cheerios, threw them the ball (the ish probably thought that was an earthquake as the ball smashed into their tank), tried to get one out with the net, dips his hands in daily, and even dropped a paci in. Oh, he loves Gary and the ishes!

I love the things toddlers do!!!


I hate the way my camera photographs the black and navy shirts, but oh well, i'm not a photographer just a shirt designer..haha!
This little sweatshirt is obviously for "Kien" :)

Brag sweatshirt

School Spirit Tees

these tee are headed to MS

Mrs. McCraw emailed me and said she found my blog while searching for all things "polka dotted!" She told me in her emails that she is a teacher and her classroom is decorated in polka dots, and of course i just LOVE that! I asked her to email me photos because as you all know i graduate in Dec. and will hopefully have my own classroom soon...and what else would i decorate it in than polka dots!! love it!
Thanks so much, enjoy!!

My LOVELY Ladies Group

This is my ladies group at church. I love this group of women! This past weekend we took a trip too Ashville to visit the Biltmore. We had a blast, i haven't laughed that hard in so long! I was so nice to get away with a group of Christian women and fellowship together. Friday we arrived (after many wrong turns, thats a long story though...i'll spare you) and dropped ours bags and went out for alittle shopping and dining. Later that night all 18 of us meet in 1 room and had bible study, which was wonderful, we laughed, cried, gave testimonies, and sang. It was GREAT! Saturday morning we ate breakfast and headed to the Biltmore, it was decorated for Christmas and beautiful. If you haven't been its worth the trip. After that we ate and toured the grounds we made our way back home. Well, i just wanted to share with you what i did this weekend, i feel truly blessed to be a part of these women's lives! Now....its back to sewing!

After alot of thinking i have decided to have a "cut off date" for Christmas orders. I hate making a deadline for christmas orders because i know what its like to be a last minute shopper! But, i have ALOT of things going on in December like....wrapping up my school work because i GRADUATE from college Dec. 11th (finally!), Senior Banquet, Christmas shopping, making my own christmas gifts, Christmas trips, Family dinners, a BIG birthday, and i would love to enjoy lots of quality time with my family. Therefore, i have decided to make December the 5th the deadline for all (CHRISTMAS) orders to be turned in. So get those Christmas orders in quickly!! :) Thanks so much!!

** i will accept all orders after December 5th but can not promise they will done in time for you wrap and give as a gifts....but i will still be taking orders and working!

So, being a mom sometimes makes you alittle bit crazy....agreed!?!? Well, maybe being a mom 40 hours a week with 1st graders, writes lessons plans every other day, stays up till 1am ALMOST every night making Tee's getting up at 6am, and tries to be a positive and "peppy" wife, mommy, family member, friend, teacher, ext. Sometimes i just can't do it all! And sometimes i CAN!! I love those days when i can just do it all and still have a positive (undrained) outlook on my day! But today, i'm just plain tired and frustrated! LIKE TODAY....I woke up late, didn't get a shower, rushed to church (because when your a sunday school teacher and pastors wife, you shouldn't be late..haha! so i hear anyways!) Then i come home and TRY my best to nap while kolton is (doesn't work) then i decide to upload pics of some the recent orders that are completed and i CAN NOT find my camera/computer cord to do so....aghhhh!! Then i sit down to sew an order only to realize i ordered the wrong size shirts...double aghhhh!! Well anyways, it hasn't been THAT bad of day...just FRUSTRATING!! But on a happier note, i spent my weekend in Ashville with my ladies group from church and we had the best time laughing ALOT, fellowshipping, and praising God for the Great he IS!! I will upload pics of the soon as i find my camera cord!! Well now that i "vented" alittle i'm off to tear the house apart and FIND MY CORD!! i hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!!
