Surgery and appointments this wek

Well what a whirlwind of a week, I can not believe that Friday is already upon us, this week has been fast but very productive. My garden is tilled and we are in the process of finishing the fence so that I can get it planted, I will post pics once completed. C had her followup with the neurologist and they are going to change her medicine for her SPD and see if that helps since the other one they believe is the reason behind the seizures. B had surgery yesterday getting his Tonsil and Adenoids removed along with allergy testing. It was a crazy week full of appointments but I felt like I got allot accomplished I would have loved to have gotten more sewing done but the sewing had to wait this week. I have been productive and getting website together for tomorrows grand reopening I wont have as many products as I wanted to post but this week will be a productive one not that many appointments and I know I will get more stuff completed. I have a couple reviews that will be posted today and tomorrow on some awesome patterns that I had the opportunity to review. I look forward to this weekend with the family and enjoying the weather.

Weekend Fun

WOW!!! This weekend went by so fast, I feel like I slept thru it, but had some great mom moments with the kiddos and loved every minute of it. Had my photo shoot on Saturday With Purple Owl Photography , Julie was wonderful so patient with the kiddos, I have attached a couple quick pics she posted for a sneak peak. Once editing is completed and website is updated I will be posting a review. If you live in the Hampton Roads Area of Virginia I couldn't recommend her enough. She is wonderful. Cant wait to share more a little later this week. We finished out Saturday spending the day with C and B and the hubster, It was the best day ever.
My Little Man He is getting so big

My Big Girl C from Saturdays Photo shoot

Sunday we went to church enjoyed some time at the nature park and lake for a quick outdoor photo op, then met my mom went to lunch and then to the circus. Wasn't sure how C would deal with her SPD but she only was fearful of the clowns, otherwise she coped pretty well and she loved the elephants, tigers, and all the great food to eat. I added a few pictures I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

This week has been a little hectic trying to get the Etsy store and my website back up in full swing the Grand kick off date is going to be May 1st or at least somewhere about that date. WOW, it has came so quickly wasn't it just May.

Sewing Away the Stress

Wanted to stop by the blog, I know that it feels abandoned but so doesn't my computer. I have been busy this week in the studio for my photo shoot Saturday for Cuddle Fly's Summer Line it has been a long time coming the Grand Re-opening of my beloved boutique. Life has calmed down enough or shall I say calmed down about as much as its going to get, and I miss my store. My etsy store has been lonely, my website feels abandoned and My sewing machines are screaming my name and I have finally answered there calls. I haven't forgotten my beloved and devoted followers but have been working, I have 8 patterns that I'm reviewing at the moment so stay tuned to some awesome reviews and a few coupons and giveaways to my fellow sewers out there. I am also working on an awesome review for Log your memory I cant wait to get all of the goodies in the mail and to share them with all of you. I have posted a few pics showing how hard I have been working my poor studio is a mess fabric everywhere, ribbons, glue gun, embroidery thread I'm in heaven, LOL I guess only a sewing and crafting junkie like myself would understand that even though life is stressful and some nights I'm not sleeping until well after 3 am because I cant seem to be able to put the scissors down, the end product is always worth it. The smile on my face to see my vision come together or the smile on my children's faces when they get that something New whether it be clothes, something for there room, or just something fun. I can honestly say sewing is the best therapy in the world, amongst all the chaos in my life it grounds me and channels all that raw emotion into something positive. I love my new summer line and it will defiantly be hard to part with some of the pieces because they are the rebirth of my site, the love that has gone behind each piece is more than I can express, I have the best job in the world because I get to sew which I love to do, but I also get to make a child, mom, dad, or other family member smile, and there are no words for that. I will see all of you tomorrow on Follow me Friday but until then. Happy Sewing, Crafty, Embroidering, Happy Crafting.

Talk about it Tuesday Tickler Tags

Talk About it Tuesday

This week I have started to following Blogger Chix Designs for Talk about it Tuesday and excuse to talk about anything that we want.

If you want to follow along just click on the link and grab her button and blog away. Hope to see you here every Tuesday.

This week on TAIT, I am going to Post about the giveaway and review that I posted last week about this wonderful new find for all of us busy moms, Tickler Tags. I have to say that my schedule always gets the best of me I have found that This product is wonderful to keep my children's schedules in order when I think that the day is going to get the better of me. I have the week from hell, my 2 year old had a seizure on Easter Sunday in church while sitting on my lap then spent Monday at the doctors with no answers then battled my little Man having a flare up of his gastritis and starting today tired, exhausted but longing to be with my blogging friends, while my son is feeling better C is still not back to 100%, this is her first REAL seizure although the neurologist has always thought she has had them we have always thought they were petimal seizures that aren't really that big of a deal. I felt bad for her and scared for me. So needless to say this week hasn't started off the greatest. We are taking it one step at a time, I am happy that new furnace and A/c are in and my studio can now get back to normal and I can begin to get my craft back on this week. I have a to do list of spring and summer outfits that I want to make for B and C. So stay posted. Check out my giveaway and enter to win, and I hope to see more of everyone each Tuesday to see what you are talking about today.

Here is how to enter my giveaway
