It's Saturday

Hello friends! It's early Saturday morning. By early I mean around 7:20 am. I don't normally post on Saturday's but since I was up I thought I would give it a whirl! I have a confession and I don't think you're going to like it. I get the award for worst blogger this week. Not because of my lack of posts but because I arrived last night at the Fourth of July Celebration at church with a DEAD CAMERA BATTERY! *Gasp* What good blogger does that? I'm so ashamed. I don't have one single picture. I took a lot of pictures for the church with their camera but none to call my very own. I will say that we had a lot of fun. The fireworks were great, the weather was nice, and we had a lot of non-church members show up. This is the second year our church has done this as an outreach ministry. I think it is certainly something I can get used to.


I feel like today is going to be wonderful and busy and I'm praying the Lord multiplies my time. This morning, as always, Josh and I will go get breakfast, groceries, and then we are going to look at fabric. I think he's really excited about the fabric part. You see, I'm going to spend a good part of my day today sewing. You know why? Because several of you are so kind as to love the dresses, ruffle shirts (I posted it on twitter), jewelry envelopes, etc I've made and want one for someone you love. I'm so honored and flattered that some of you would let me make things for you! Seriously. Here's a picture of some fabric I'm using to make a few things.

I L.O.V.E. this fabric. Picture it in a jumper dress (the zebra print), a ruffle dress, a ruffle shirt, and ruffle pants. SO CUTE! I like it because it's bright but it's also not seasonal. These fabrics can be worn year round. I can't wait to share pictures with you! Hopefully the ladies who are buying from me will share the pictures of their cuties wearing them.

Also, I wanted to let you mothers of boys know something. I'm going to be making jon-jon's/rompers in the next couple of weeks. I can't just make girl's clothes now can I? I will post pictures when I get them finished.

As always, feel free to e-mail me with any questions or if you'd like me to make something for you as well.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'm off to wake up my husband. I figured he probably didn't sleep well with all the anticipation and excitement of fabric shopping today.

Happy Early Birthday, America!!!

Hi Hillary,

I am visiting from Kelly's blog and had to comment to tell you how cute the things are you have made for Harper! I have a 19 month old daughter Lily who I would love to talk with you about making something for! Can you email me how much you would charge?

OH! I am excited you are going to make rompers for boys too! I have a 12 month old boy and a little preemie boy in the NICU!! We have a four year old son too but he has outgrown rompers!! Maybe we could do a matching t-shirt or something :)

I have a 9 month old son and would love a romper. Can you post pictures once you have one complete? I am looking for something really cute for his 1st birthday. We are Auburn fans but I see you are an Arkansas fan. Could you make one with Auburn as a theme?
