Santa's list must be different than mommy and daddy's list, because the girls woke up to stockings full of goodies and a Christmas tree full of presents underneath. Well I guess they can't be good ALL of the time, right?
One of the girls' favorite gifts were the Lalaloopsy twins. The girls just adore these dolls right now. Xiera wants to collect them all.
Another favorite that Santa brought was their very own look alike American Girl dolls.
Xiera calls her "Little Xiera" and does just about everything with her.
Zella likes to have tea time with hers and offers her occasional candy treats.
Merry Christmas from our happy home to yours! :)

I would like to thank Sue of The Handmade Emporium for including my rainbow leg warmers in her beautiful crochet treasury. I really adore the little mini crochet cupcakes and tote bag in this too. You can also visit the treasury HERE.

Yesterday I woke up to THIS!
It was the school's first snow day and the girls made the most of it! It was WAY too cold to enjoy it outside so we enjoyed it by admiring the view indoors.
While the girls were playing dolls, coloring, painting, playing with playdough, and hiding Phoebe the cat in the hamper, I was busy crocheting these.
I made the hair clips for my niece. I think they turned out so adorable.
I also finished this cute custom cat hat for a beloved customer of mine.
It was made to match their family cat. Her name is Katty, and she is a cutie.

Xiera wrote a list out for Santa this year and she went over it with him. The funny thing is that Santa turned it over and exclaimed, "And there is back?" Xiera then told him that she circled her favorites because she knows he isn't able to get everything she wants. :) It was so cute! Zella is pretty easy to please this year. "I just want Princess Jasmine."
We also were able to get our Christmas family portraits done this year and I couldn't be more pleased.
We went to Sears for pictures this year. As soon as we entered the studio Zella's eyes became fixed on a colorful little bear wearing a tutu and balerina slippers. She pleaded for that bear and we all knew ballerina bear was going to be apart of our memories forever.
We were able to get a few pictures taken without Miss Ballerina Bear but only a few.. :)

Sugar3 Faze2 is having their Boy Meets Girl Valentine themed launch this week. I listed a brand new leg warmer design for the occasion.
Introducing the Girly Girl Ruffle Leg Warmers!
You can find the ebay listing for them HERE. Don't want to wait for the auction to end? You can buy them now in my Etsy Store HERE! Don't forget to search Sugar3 Faze2 Meet for the adorable matching outfit and accessories.
I have been busy today adding a few more designs to my Etsy store. A few oldies like the Cat's Hat and The Elf Hat. And a few newbies too!
Xiera has been asking me to make her a kitty cat hat for a long time now so I went ahead and made her one similar to one I had made for a customer last year.
I have another brand new design to share; The Fun Fringe Tassel Hat.
This cute hat can be made in an infant size up to an adult size. It can also be made in a variety of colors.
You can find Kitty Cuteness and the Fun Fringe Tassel Hat both listed in my Etsy store.

The Christmas holiday is approaching faster than you can say "Ho! Ho! Ho!" And the custom orders are pouring in! All of my lovely customers have been keeping my fingers busy with elf hats, gingerbread men hats, candy cane leg warmers, and custom gift orders for their loved ones.
Here are a few custom orders I mailed out this week! I had Zella model this adorable hot pink cowgirl hat trimmed in black right before I mailed it out yesterday. I really like the pink and black combo for this!
Here is the front view..
and the side view...
The mini me hats are still as popular as ever. This week I made one for a baby boy! I really like his little blond curl I stitched on. :)
I also wanted to announce that I am now a proud member of the Ebay Boutique Group
Faze2 and Sugar3 have joined forces and I am so excited and look forward to working with all of these talented ladies! Come and check out our mini launch on Ebay called That Cat. Remember to search Sugar3 Faze2 I relisted my Cat's Hat just for the occasion. ;)

The girls were able to go Trick or Treating twice again this year. Once on Thursday night and then again last night in my parents' neighborhood. Zella was Snow White once again on Thursday night. (She can still fit into her Snow White costume from last year and wanted to wear it again.) On Saturday evening Zella went as a fairy princess. Do you remember THIS tutu dress? Well it fits Zella now so we added some fairy wings, a wand, crown, and a pair of pink converse and we were ready to rock and roll. Xiera went as Coraline this year. She had every last detail of Coraline down to her polished blue nails, button eyed doll, freckles and dragonfly hair clip. ;)
Needless to say, the girls had a great time getting all of that yummy candy.
And seeing all of the wonderful Halloween displays was an added bonus too.
