So much FUN!

So this was posted on Jeremy & Sara's blog and it is so amazing, I just had to share.

I am a nanny and I can't wait until the little one wakes from her nap so she can play with it. Oh well, she just woke up. Time to play!

I've got a new item posted on

My new addiction!

So my friend got me hooked on this new website. Its called So much fun. You basically can design your own fashion pages. But it doesn't have to be just fashion. I designed my best friend's wedding which is an Alice in Wonderland theme and my own wedding which is a Winter Wonderland. It has been so much fun. I did outfits for all my friend's bridemaids. And then I just have had fun shopping for clothes I want. This is a great site to find that hard to find dress you have been looking everywhere for.

The Diet Begins

My best friend in the world is getting married! She has started the Bride Diet and to support her and to finally get myself back down to my ideal weight, I have started the Maid of Honor Diet! I am giving myself until my birthday, in six months, to lose the extra 25 pounds. I know I can do this! I signed up today on I already added in what I plan to have for dinner and easily did it under my calorie goal. This is hopefully going to be easier than I thought! Now I just need to motivate myself to exercise. That's the part I hate. I think I may do some yoga while the little one is asleep.

Check out the sidelines!

I am working on expanding my blog to include a list of great events throughout the world that would be perfect places to wear the Victorian stlye accessories from my shop. Unfortunately, it is only currently expanded to include events that are local to me, most of which I have been to. I would love it if you can leave comments of events you know of in your area that I can add to my list. Thanks!

Also check out the list of my favorite people to work with. These include my favorite photgrapher and hair/ makeup artist. As well as the models from my photoshoots, Diane who is an amazing cake designer and Amanda who heads a killer punk caberet band. Check them all out!

New Hat Collection - Ideas in the Works

Last night, I was up until 3am as millions of thoughts and ideas ran through my head. I came up with an idea for my next collection of mini top hats. Dolls! Each hat will be based on a different style of doll. Think baby dolls with lots of pink and clowns with bright colors and patchwork. I don't want to share all the plans as I don't want them stolen. ;) Anyways, I am very excited about this collection and can't wait for the supplies I have ordered to come in so I can get started.

Myspace Update

Just got all my photos updated on myspace including behind the scenes photos from our last two photoshoots! Go ahead and take a look and become my friend!

My first Treasury!

So I finally was able to make a Treasury. After months of watching them to be open, they finally became available during a time I was at my computer. I'm pretty proud of it. I found some great stuff. It was hard to choose which ones because I was afraid to post things I really wanted for fear someone would buy them and I wouldn't be able to. I decided to risk it and hopefully they do sell but they can make another when I want to buy it! In fact, one of them has already sold! I wonder if it was because of this Treasury...hmmmmm. ;) Well let me know what you think! Check it out!

Another New Creation!

So these are ones I really like. Lou looks amazing in the photos even though we were short on time and didn't have the time for hair and makeup. She did her makeup in 3 minutes sitting on the beach in a bathing suit partially wrapped in in a blanket. She was such a trooper! I can't wait to shoot with her again and actually have her hair and makeup done. She is an incredible model and a great friend!

New Item Posted!

Got another beautiful hat posted. This is a completely unique hat from anything you'll see out there. Sweet baby's breath and a butterfly make this a perfect hat for the spring. Would be stunning at a Victorian picnic or tea party or just a stroll in the park. Check this hat out and all the others at

Back From Vacation! So much to do!

We have made it back from Disneyland! Had an absolute BLAST! I returned to have received photos from our past two photoshoots. I have gotten some of them posted but am still working on getting the rest up. Also working on scheduling another photoshoot to get a bunch more photos. I have so much to do at this start of the new year. 2009 promises to be amazing though not without plenty of hard work. Time to get started!

Things to accomplish in high hopes of improving my sales and becoming a SUCCESS!
#1 Completely reorganize my work space and keep it that way!
#2 Replace all my old pictures with fantastic, jaw-dropping new ones!
#3 Create tons of new inventory!
#4 Have a booth at a craft show at least every 2 months!
#5 Sell at least 50 items on Etsy by the end of the year!
#6 Complete a huge holiday collection in time for 2009!
#7 Have fun while doing it all!

My hopes are high! My dream will come true! And I will enjoy every minute of it!
