So I've been gone for a while and I'm SO wanting to get back into the swing of things and I'm currently trying to spruce up my blog a bit following a FABULOUS blog series by Momma Go Round! She is the sole reason my blog looks as fabulous as it does so far! (I don't know if y'all remember what it looked like before but it was just very generic and now...it's getting better! Things you may not notice or see but that I for SURE do!!! Like....(drum roll) my Blogger Navigation bar is gone...awesome! I feel like that just LOOKS so much more "official"! lol :)

I'm having some trouble with my custom social media feed buttons, so it got me thinking...I wonder if my signature works.

Here goes nothing... ;)

Back to School Event Giveaway

It's that time again...Back to School! I don't know about you...but I'm ready! My daughter is ready too. I can tell she is starting to get bored. :)

You know what Back to School means...supplies! Mmmm...I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils! "Don't you just LOVE New York in the Fall? If I knew your name and address, I would send you a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils" ~Tom Hanks as Joe Fox in You've Got Mail.

Sorry...movie line freak! :)
Anyway, I'm sponsoring a giveaway over at Take a Mom's Word For It! I'm giving away a free mini notepad holder! These are great for younger kids going back to school to jot down homework assignements. They're also great for College kids headed back as well. Great to keep with you at all times just in case you need to jot down that cute boy's number at the coffee shop that she's studying at! :)

I listed some new ones yesterday and here are a couple of my favorites! To check out the entire collection, head over to my shop!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Look what my daughter did today!!!

Not entirely on her own...I had to help a bit but she made it and is so proud! And I am so excited that I was able to help her and teach her how to sew!!!

Her birthday was a couple of weeks ago and she got a mini sewing machine from my parents. This is what she asked for...she had been asking for one for about 6 months leading up to her birthday...so cute by the way! :) A girl after my own heart! So, we went to the fabric store one day and she saw this smocked Fancy Nancy fabric sold by the bolt and said that she would really like a Fancy Nancy dress. So, we bought some and when she asked me last night if I would show her today how to use her sewing machine, I thought...Perfect! She can learn how to sew by making herself her Fancy Nancy dress! Here is the fabric before we cut it down to size.

Then we marked it and cut it to the appropriate size. It was a little tough for her to cut through the fabric (not at all like cutting paper...and that's the only think she's ever cut before) so I helped her a bit and she did great!

Then she learned how to line up the sides and pin it...being VERY careful not to stick herself! As a side note...she DID stick herself once and she said, "Ow! Well, I guess I won't do that again...I'll be more careful next time!" LOVE her!!! :)

We had her sewing machine set up on a little table just her size. Unfortunately, we got everything all set up and ready to go but the machine didn't work. Booo The darn bobbin would not turn and so the stitches were not holding. So, we moved over to my machine and I worked the foot pedal for her.

But she fed the fabric through like a champ and even kept it lined up perfectly to the guide!

I helped a bit more with the straps but for the most part, this dress was all her! I'm so excited that she did this and that she loves it! AND...it's one more thing that we have in common! Hey, she doesn't look AT ALL like me so I'll take what I can get. She definitely has my personality and now she likes a lot of the same things that I do and I LOVE having that in common!

A fabulous product for a great cause

I was sitting at my desk trying to think of a great topic to discuss. And this popped into my head!

My friend Tia, is an amazing mom of 5 that runs quite a successful business Crimson Clover where she designs and makes some of the most original and amazing pieces of jewelry I have ever seen! How does she do it all??? I have no idea but I certainly do admire her strength and determination.

Her oldest child was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes a few years ago and Tia has made it one of her missions to help bring awareness to the magnitude and scope of the disease with the vision that there will one day be a cure.

She has a few awesome Tee and Tank top designs dedicated to juvenile diabetes and with each one sold, she donates the proceeds to finding a cure. On top of that, the American Diabetes Association has contacted her to begin working with them to help raise awareness through the use of her amazing products!!! How exciting is that?!?!

Tia will be closing up shop in just a few short weeks to make a move halfway across the country. She will reopen later in the year once she gets settled but I wanted to let you all know of this because if you're looking for a great cause to support, this is definitely the one!

Go get your T's and tanks before she closes up and help the fight against juvenile diabetes! And while you're at it...why don't you pick up one of these yummy leather cuff bracelets too. I just got mine in the mail and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
