Spunky Dresses for Holiday Fun!

It's time for another Etsy feature - Christmas Style!
It is almost time for the Christmas season and I'm sure some moms are frantically trying to find a cute outfit for holiday photos or Christmas parties and concerts... well, look no further than Blue Moon Designs.

A while ago I bought some super cute dresses from Blue Moon Design on Etsy and was totally impressed! They were well made, easy to wash and what's more important... my girls loved them!

I bought 2 matching dresses, both bright red, light blue and white with a few other hints of colour (see photo). The dress on the left is the one I bought for Miss Bella and Miss S's dress was very similar to the one on the right.I suggest going with a dress like the left one and the top photo. It's nice and roomy and will grow a bit longer with your wee one... plus, it TWIRLS great! I see they have added some great holiday patterns to their shop so hurry up and order yours! You want it shipped in time for the holidays!

New Kids on the Block!

We've been adding a few newbies to the shop as we mentioned a while back... here's a little preview...Something for those who love the traditional look.

Something for those who like something fun. We did the girls letters to Santa with this one.

This one is for those who like traditional with a twist!

For those who like a cool modern look.

And this one is just fun. The colours are so bright... like candy canes!

Thursday's Thoughts

Wow! Can you believe there are only 51 days and 14 hours (and a few minutes) until Christmas!!!

October flew by so fast! Heck the whole year flashed before my eyes! Now I really have to get on making Miss S's 3rd birthday party pack! I only have a month and a handful of days for that!So we have decided to buy this little gadget for the girls for Christmas. I pick it up today. I think I am going to play around with it a little bit to decide if we are getting a second one for DD#1 or if we are going to get a Nintendo DSi or iPod Touch instead. I'm kind of leaning towards getting 2 of these so DDs don't fight but on the other hand they will eventually grow out of them. I like the learning aspect to this system. Do any of my readers have one of these at home??? Suggestions? Suggestions for games for girls??

We already put the word out that we don't want a lot of toys for Christmas and that we were getting one of these so people could get games for it instead. Our girls have so many toys that they never play with... I think the local New-to-You shop will be receiving a bag of plushies before Christmas hits!

I've also been busy whipping up a few hats before Christmas. One very special little girl who was diagnosed with a rare leukemia got this (see below) super cute blue, pink and purple hat yesterday from a thoughtful relative. Hope it brightens her spirits. My daughter Miss S (seen below) sure loved it!I also sold this little purple hat to another little cutie in town. So cute to see other people's wee ones walking around with something you made with your own hands.

I have a couple of cute little earflap hats waiting to find some good homes and cute little girls to enjoy...I'm not filling an order for a little man and his big sis... it's a fun order for me because it is for a MONSTER HAT and a flower beanie. I don't have little boys so this monster hat is fun for me... DD1 or 2 might have to get a new pink version this Christmas. I'll post some photos when I get them finished!

Anyways, don't forget to get a jumpstart on your holiday greeting orders! Here's a few little gems you might like!

Halloween Round Up

We survived the ghosts and goblins and faired away with little sugar rush meltdowns.... how did you all make out?

This was my DDs' first Halloween and they LOVED it! The costumes and the potluck get-together at a friends house and oh yeah, did I mention the trick-or-treating? One of the kids in our group was in Miss Bella's class and they had so much fun trick-or-treating together that when it was time to leave, the cute little guy started crying. He wanted to stay and play longer with Miss Bella. So adorable! Bella had to hug it out with him before we all left. We assured the little guy they'd see each other at playschool the next day.

So I thought I would just make this post a sharing post full of fun photos from our first Halloween... hope you enjoy!
Busy making our jack-o-lanterns...
