Branching Out....

Aren't these the cutest shoes EVER? These are tiny (0-3 months).
I'm going to be doing a couple of Farmer's markets this summer and I thought that I would do soap at one and kid stuff at the other. This little pillowcase dress is my prototype. It's a super cute dress on my 11 month old Tali - and a really cute top on my size 6 Kenzie. That's what I love about the pillowcase dresses - versatility.
I found these cute stands at TJ Maxx and they are just the right size for these dresses.

This is the apron I made to wear at craft shows and farmer's markets. The one I made for my friend, Carrie, is even cuter - if you want to see it, go to her blog . At the Wheeler Farm show a couple of people asked about the fabulous aprons.

My sister's vinyl lettering!

I live in a world where almost every other girl I know is decorating her house with "Gordon B. Hinkley's Be's" and plaques that say "Families are Forever" (there are a million versions of this), or any number or scriptural references. I don't think these are bad things - but I was never one to mindlessly follow the crowd. Here's what I've done......
My sister, Katie, does the coolest stuff with her vinyl lettering machine! This Domestic Goddess one is in my kitchen over the plant shelves. The ceiling is vaulted in here so I've had this huge bare wall forever. Not now!! It measures 2ft X 3ft and it's AWESOME!!
She also made me these cute labels for my laundry soap! The containers aren't very big, but when you only use a tablespoon at a time it's not so bad. This holds about 30 loads worth of laundry soap.
I LOVE this one also. It's in the kids bathroom. This quote ALWAYS makes people chuckle - especially when I tell them I put it on my wall!
Not pictured are the "26.2" window sticker for my car. My husband HATES when I put the pink one on the mustang. And the Super cute "polka dots & posies" for my business sign.
If you want Katie to make something awesome for you, send me your email and I'll pass it along!
