Projects & Pigtails

2 droopy pigtails.. I am the worst hair dresser ever.
She'll hate me one day because of this.
But hey she likes it now.. She loves looking at herself in the mirror

Yesterday when I picked Maddie up from
Daycare her bin was full of these goodies!!
How cute is that., July is Space month at daycare.
I love the art projects she made.
I have so been looking forward to getting them.
I am so happy with our Daycare choice (thanks Dorothy)
I love all of their programs and activities, the teachers the director
Maddie is happy too!
But I am not going to lie we have had a couple days where i have lost it in the parking lot. A flood of tears after watching her chase after me and pull on my pants as I tried to get out the door.. eek.
 But even on the bad days she's just pouts she doesn't cry.
That does make it a litte easier.

Todays the day

Here is my mini wallet, Isn't it awesome ?

Todays the big 200th post giveaway!!
As promised here is a little Q & A from
Grab your coffee and donut and read on

Here's a bit about Andrea:

First and foremost I'm the CEO of my little household. I love to keep our house running and doing my best to keep the hearts in it as happy as I can. I've always loved art and that carried all the way through college where I earned my BA in Graphic Design. I started sewing for reals (I had dabbled a little here and there) about 3 years ago when I made my best friend an apron for her birthday. I was hooked. I now spend about 2-4 hours a day with my sewing machine. We're close ;). The Etsy shop just naturally flowed out of my increased sewing and a growing interest (by friends and family) in what I was making. So far it's been a great fit for me, balancing a little business and still keeping up with my full time, CEO shop. When I'm not sewing, I also love to run, read, shop, knit, drink Starbucks and get pedicures.

Your shop has a great variety of products,
What is your favorite item in your shop ?

Hmmm, that's a tough question. I try not to make anything that I don't love. Some items I originally started with (like aprons) I don't do as much because I'm just not loving the creative process. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd say the 'gathered' line of clutches and now iPad/Kindle covers has got me really inspired. I have a few more ideas I'm itching to create with a similar look.

I love your use of fabric combinations,
What is your favorite fabric and/or
fabric designer that you like to use?

Thank you! Shopping (one of my favorite things to do) is one of the biggest perks of owning a sewing business. My favorite combination of fabrics is mixing a floral, a stripe and a polka dot. I think it's a winning combination. Currently I'm loving, "Early Bird" by Cosmo Cricket, "Nicey Jane" by Heather Bailey, "Meadowsweet" (and soon "Meadowsweet 2") by Sandi Henderson ... and I could go on and on. :D

Picture keeper - This is next on my list

Last question, What is your favorite vacation spot ?

Well if I go off of personal experience ... without a doubt, Maui, HI. I don't think I want to live there, but I'd be happy to vacation there for 4 weeks out of the year. LOVE it! My second favorite spot, that we are able to visit a few times a year is the Oregon Coast. I have so many memories from my childhood with my parents and grandparents, my honeymoon and all the vacations we've taken as a family. Plus it doesn't hurt that my bestie lives an hour and a half inland :).
