Piggy Paint...

If you haven't heard of Piggy Paint you need to check it out!
Melanie Hurley, founder of Piggy Paint is a stay at home mom that created a kid-friendly nail polish that is water based and specially formulated with natural ingredients. Piggy Paints are non-toxic, odorless and dries to a hard, durable finish!
They also offer a non-toxic nail polish remover.

Melanie says since most young children are squirmy during the drying process of any polish, she suggests singing songs to pass the time. Two rounds of the “ABC’s” should make 60 seconds pass by very quickly. Make “Piggy Painting” a bonding experience for you and your child.

Lots of colors to choose from and you will receive free domestic shipping on all orders of $25 or more. Go check it our here!

Only 4 days to the Lodi Street Faire and we are still working hard on new pieces! Our website is almost complete and should have it up again in a few more days.

Have a fabulous day!

Something vintage...

...and oh so sweet!
I came across the sweetest fabric at a local antique shop downtown and it is perfect for a new summer dress we are working on. It will be a Limited Edition since our chances of coming across that same fabric is highly unlikely. I will give you a is a beautiful floral print on a nice summer yellow and we are pairing it with pink of course. This one may not make it to our website if it sells out Sunday....sorry guys. Well I'm off to finish up a few pieces and then off to bed I go.
Have a good night!

One more sneak peek!
How adorable is she in our NEW Annie Knot Top and Capris.

Shannon did it again! She captured the perfect photos for this ensemble.

I think this is one of my favorite new ensembles.

How adorable is she with those little curls!

We have several new pieces coming and are working hard to get our website updated. Hopefully that will be up and running by the end of the week. The Lodi Street Faire countdown is on...only 7 days left!

Have a fabulous Sunday!

Starbucks Baby!

I didn't realize Starbucks first store was opened back in 1971...
When my favorite coffeehouse called House of Coffee's isn't open I head over to the fabulous Starbucks.

I had to pick up something yummy to drink while I work on all these new dresses, skirts, tops, and capris. If you haven't tried Starbucks Tuxedo drink you is yummy. I just wanted to stop in and say hello! We will give you another sneak peek won't want to miss it! Now it's back to work...if you want to call it that.

It's good to be back! I had a great weekend in Sutter Creek and enjoyed spending time with my girlfriends all 110 of them...It was actually a ladies retreat for our church. We had an amazing guest speaker who really opened my eyes to what God has for me and my family! So many of us are controlled by our fear and our negative thinking. We need to keep a vision of victory and expect and believe God for bigger and better things. Let go of doubt, failure and fear and keep your mind filled with thoughts of HOPE!
Psalm 23:6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life...
Now that I'm done preaching to ya :)
I'm off to work in the studio....we are cutting a ton of dresses today! I'll try to post a few sneak peeks later this week for you all.
Have a blessed day!
