It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year for a Storm SALE!

I know many of you will probably think I am rushing this, but as Amy, Selina and Beth can tell you....I live for the holidays!  October until January are my favorite times of the year and I love to create new outfits for Eleanor and have had a fabulous time adding new items to the shop.  I have been having a great time getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Thanksgiving designs

I have also added some cute hair clip options to go with the shirts

I have also started adding some great shirts and dresses for Christmas.  Many of these will easily be wearable after Christmas because of the winter theme.  Hair clips for these will be coming in the next few days.

This dress is also available with the applique and monogram in the blue fabrics shown below

All of these items are currently listed in my shop and there will be more to come.  In fact, because I am riding out Frankenstorm by sewing, I am having a 10% off sale NOW!  It runs until midnight on Halloween (to be honest probably early AM on 11/1 since I sure better not be up at midnight) use code FRANKENSTORM to save 10%, click here for my shop. 

Last but not least are these fabulous Christmas pajamas.  I listed all of these items on my Facebook page back in July and they arrived last week.  So far they are stitching out wonderfully.  Here is what I have so far.

I still have quite a few pairs of pajamas to add!

New Monogrammed Items in the Shop

As I mentioned in my previous post, now that we have settled into a routine for school I am getting back into listing some great new items in my shop.  I buy all my blank tshirts and dresses from Monag and my applique designs from Applique Market and Applique Cafe.  If you see something there that is not listed in my shop let me know, I am happy to do custom work.  Shirts are $25-$30 and dresses are $35-40, I do give discounts for multiple items.  And of course, a hairbow can be added to any item for $5.00.  Here are some pictures of some current designs in my shop!

 Here are some pictures of some great new fabrics I got

 As always, I can also do custom clothing like I make for Eleanor.  If you ever see something you like please let me know!

Back to the blog

So I just sat down to blog and realized it has been a little over 8 months since I last blogged...ha!  Life has been busy but exciting, without much to really share.  Here are some pictures of what we have been up to

Mother's Day at PreK

PreK Graduation
Me, Eleanor and my Mom

 First Dance Recital
 6th Birthday 

We ended the summer with our family trip to the Outer Banks right before school started.  Eleanor started Kindergarten in August and so far has been doing fabulous.  The initial adjustment was difficult for both of us however she has come to love it and we have seen so much progress.  
I have started leading the middle school and high school youth group at our Church and also teaching the confirmation class.  This kept me very busy in September but now that I am into a routine things are fabulous.  I was truly nervous I would have a big whole without my little sidekick all day but I find that it is time to go get her before I even know it.
The new adjustment to our routine has finally settled and I am back to updating the Etsy shop with lots of great items.  I took the summer off to focus on my family but I have so many great items listed and ready to list.  I will be posting more pictures tomorrow but for now here is what is up!
