My favorite things..

One of my favorite features on other blogs are the "Favorite Things" posts. I love finding new ideas and products through them. I saw that 320* Sycamore was having a link party So I decided to join in!

1. Leg warmers for my little baby toddler! 
These ones are from my sister's tutu shop, Tootsie Tutu Shop
Leg warmers + a tutu for $28? Don't mind if I do!

2. Biosilk by Farouk. Like liquid gold, only better. 
This stuff takes the frizz out and helps straighten and silken hair. 
I've been using it for years and I love it!

Simple yet stylish monthly planner. 
And the illustrations by Jenny Bowers are to die for! 
I love anything Kate Spade.

4. My 20 month old loves to wear my shoes so when I saw this book I knew we had to have it. 
Fun & short story. 
Super adorable illustrations.

5. The Blob Brush Tool in Illustrator. My new BFF. 
If you are an Adobe Illustrator user, especially using a tablet, you have got to get acquainted with this tool. And pronto. You won't be sorry you did.

Join the party over at *320 Sycamore!

Sew much fun!

For Christmas, I asked for this:

 And Santa delivered early! And he didn't wrap it either.. in fact it was setup just like that right on the table. Yep, that's the story that I'm sticking to. So I got right to work and sewed this!

Ahh! I'm so proud! I only had to unstitch it once. I really considered leaving the ears off. But I'm glad I fixed it. The only part I'm not sure about (besides the crooked sewing and doing the ears wrong even after my messup) is the embroidered eyes/nose. The pattern didn't really explain how to do it so I just winged it. I think it works for this little fox but I'm definitely going to need to practice that one.

If anyone is curious, I got the pattern from Bit of Whimsy Dolls. I got a couple of others too so I'll be fabric shopping this week!

Anyone know about any good sewing tutorials/blogs out there?

Ahh! I'm such a slacker! I haven't updated my blog in forever! And.. as far as my goal goes.. I fell way short but that's ok! I'm working on quite a few new designs, got quite a few listed in the shop, did several large custom designs & got some things completed around the house that needed it. Here is what we have been up to..

Christmas is coming up really quick so I'll be adding some new designs to the shop in the next week or two. I'm excited about those!

Here is a sneak peek on a new design that I've been working on over the last couple of days..

I finally completed part of the decals for my daughter's room & got them put up yesterday.. we love the way they turned out!
Other shots from her bedroom..

Her room is not quite finished but we love how it has turned out so far!
