Busy as a Bee

Well, I have just been a little busy bee around here trying to get custom Etsy onesie orders completed and perfected! Four orders, all handpainted, wrapped in a beautiful package with individual tags for each little onesie has taken me atleast a week and a half. I also decided to try my hand at collage and made a little something special for my girlfriend's baby Ava to hang in her room. I like how it turned out.

My cupcake swap date is approaching and I cannot wait to post that cute thing!!! I will wait until my parnter recieves all her goodies.

My husband and I decided to take a drive down a beautiful scenic road here in our town and of course we stumbled upon an antique store/mall. Wow, were the prices perfect! I must share the goodies I found. Then, when we got the car, my hubby told me he needed a tissue and he told me to get one for him in the glove compartment and voila! there was this little something special waiting on me. A picture of a maiden and her love embracing one another. He saw that I had picked it up in the shop and then that little stinker went and bought it for me while I was shopping. Found a beautiful Mary statue that looks sort of like one I bought in Italy on our honeymooon. Love my kitties and put them in the kitchen. I cannot wait to go back to this place!!!

Oh, one more thing, I submitted a little article for a popular blog, 5minutesformom and they accepted it! I was published this week! I'm so super excited!

The onesies are sugar sweet! Do you hand paint those, Jaime? So talented and i adore the little ballerina card for Ava. That Little Ballerina book was my complete favorite as a child. I mean, I wanted to be her! Later,it was Marsha Brady :) But that's a whole 'nother subject!

Lucky you! Your husband was very thoughtful to do that for you!
Thanks for coming by our blog at the Mommy Lounge.
Your site is so beautiful and I love your designs. I have begun to crochet and wanted to make some things to sell in boutiques around town or on etsy. Would you stop by my personal blog page ( and take a look at my newest creation? I need advice on how much it would be worth. Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks!
