Closet Resells

I finally finished listing all of the girls' gently used clothes on Ebay this evening. Everything is name brand boutique clothing. Ebay has been having a sale all week. For every $.99 listing it costs only one penny to list! Well you know I had to jump on that and go listing crazy!!! So if you have or know of any little girls that wear the sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and/or a size 3T, please come and check out myEbay Listings!! Okay now I am off to crochet!!

More Sickness And New Ebay Listings!!

Poor Zella has been sick with a nasty cold all week. At night is the worst! The poor thing can barely breathe at night. I have to elevate her crib mattress with a pillow underneath of it and I put the humidifier in her room. Now Xiera, Hubby, and I are all sick with nasty colds this evening. I think I am going to go out tomorrow and purchase 2 more humidifiers so we can all have one in our bedrooms at night.

On a good note; I FINALLY listed my M2MG Ice Cream Social Set on Ebay for the TheChicks M2MG Launch.

Ice Cream Social Halter

Ice Cream Social Purse

Xiera also modeled these adorable bows and matching triple scoop ice cream hair clip made by Jeanine of Monkey Cheek Boutique! Aren't they adorable?

Who's Tagging Who?

I have been tagged by my friend Dawn of Dolce*Diva*Designs! We met a few years back on one of ebay's boutique groups. She is just the sweetest!

Here are the rules:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Ok, here we go!

1. Before I crocheted, I used to make OOAK Rainbow Brite dolls. I used to take old beat up dolls that I would find at garage sales or on ebay and completely restore them by hand painting their faces, and re rooting their yarn hair. I also made them new clothes.

2. Before I became a mommy, I used to be a preschool teacher. I also used to teach toddlers and care for the babies as well. I did this for 6 years.

3. I am a left handed crocheter. I have to follow patterns pretty much backwards.

4. I am a HUGE Hello Kitty Fan! I just love that adorable little white kitty that is unable to speak! ;)

5. I survive everyday on 4-5 hours of sleep and function rather well!

6. I am a compulsive clean freak! I am always keeping up with my laundry. Before going to bed at night, I have to have the sink completely dish-free, and everything has to be put back in it's place before I can sleep.

7. I LOVE collecting buttons. Vintage buttons are my favorites! So if you have any you want to part with or know of someone who does please let me know. ;)

Coloring Eggs and Signs of Spring

Today Xiera had lots of fun coloring Easter eggs. There are so many colors in a Coloring Egg kit now. I remember when the kits only contained up to 5-6 colors to color your eggs. Now the kits come with 12 colors to chose from!! What fun!! Xiera learned a great lesson today. Mixing red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple makes the color she likes to call, "Murky."

Spring is finally here!! Hurray!! This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the bright beautiful tulips and yellow daffodils that perk up this time of year. The grass turning the brightest shade of green and the shades of lavender and pink blossoms that playfully bloom on many of the trees. Outside we found these beautiful little flowers sprouting up in little bunches in parts of our yard. A sure sign that spring has finally arrived! ;)

Tonight I had a much needed night out with my SIL and her hubby. We went out to a bar downtown and cheered on my hubby's band Seventh Spectrum. For all of you who do not know my hubby is the lead guitarist of the band. It is a hard rock metal band so it was a loud exciting night!! They really put on an AWESOME show!!! Here are a few pics from tonight's show!
A very rare pic of me and my SIL Jessie

More Modeling and Fun in the Sun!

Xiera and I had a lot of fun today modeling this super cute Big Bird Set made by Sarah of *BBCB* (Blue Birds Childrens Boutique) This set is O so cute and Xiera just loves the fact that all of her favorite Sesame Street characters are on it! Psssstttt....Elmo is her favorite!! ;)

Today turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day! I can't believe that it got up to almost 65 degrees! I let the girls play outside for most of the day! Zella is getting around so much quicker now. It is really hard to keep up with her!! LOL!! Gotta love those short little quick feet!! Notice Xiera wearing her favorite pants she got from grandma Barb (my mom) She would wear those pants everyday if I let her. She calls them her comfy cozy pants! She has been going through this phase where she only wants to wear her pajamas or her jogging suits. I call it the *Comfy Cozy Phase* Every time I turn around she disappears into her room and then she comes out with a new pajama outfit on! Has anyone or is anyone going through this phase with their little one?

There is something about this next picture that makes me giggle and feel all warm and fuzzy inside! ;) I just love that spring pea coat of Zella's. She reminds me of a little miniature detective! (Notice the large branch from our tree out front has fallen from the weight of the ice that was on it a few weeks ago.)

Modeling For Loveland Avenue

Xiera and I had the pleasure of working with Sally of Loveland Avenue! And I just have to say her work is impeccable and flawless!! The set Xiera modeled for her was just soooo springy and fun!! To the white peasant top down to the dangling flower attached to the skirt. This modeling shoot was a bit tricky due to the non-spring weather we have been having. (Notice the snow in the background of one of the pictures) I am sure you have all heard about the lovely Ohio weather we have been having. If not, you can refer to my older posts. Luckily it got up to 52 degrees today. (Well at least that is what my car said it was in the sunlight. ;) ) So we decided to just go for it!! Xiera wanted to step in the snow with her sandals on soooo bad. She kept saying, "Mommy I want to squish the snow in my toes!" LOL!! Here are a few of my favorites from today's photo shoot! Please enjoy!

Sickness, New Designs, and Ohio Weather!

All last week Zella had the nastiest viral infection. In fact she still has it and if it continues by Wednesday (because the doctor told me it could last up to 12 days) I will be calling the doctor again for sure!) This past weekend I came down with some nasty bug. Probably a combination of the viral infection Zella has and a terrible cold. My throat started getting really sore on Friday and now it is all in my chest! YUCK!
On a good note, I finished my set for The Chicks' See Ya At The Beach Launch!! Introducing The Octo-Buddy Halter and Octo-Purse!

The Octo-Purse took me forever to make!! I thought I would never get finished with those legs, Crochet...Stuff...Crochet...Stuff, Sheesh 6 more to go! LOL!! And then I had to sew each one on after that!! The Octo-Purse pattern itself is really easy so for all my crocheting readers, I am actually in the process of writing out the pattern for this one and once it is copyrighted, I plan on having the pattern available on my website, and etsy store! I will be needing some testers so if you are interested just let me know and you will get the pattern for free, and I will also mention your name on the copyrighted pattern!! ;)

Now let's talk about Ohio weather!! Where are the signs of Spring? 2 weeks ago it rained practically all week and then early last week we had a sleet storm that caused a lot of tree branches to break and a few friends and neighbors of ours had their siding fall off of their houses. The trees did look quite beautiful, like they were adorned in dangling shiny crystals!!

Xiera had fun pretending to ice skate on our icy yard, while I kept trying to spot her from falling. She obviously has no her father. ;)

This past weekend we had 16 inches of snow with snow drifts as high as 3 feet. Hubby tried backing the car out on Saturday and got the car completely stuck in the driveway. At least today it got up to 46 degrees and the snow is finally starting to melt. I am soooooo ready for spring!

Who Are You Rooting For On American Idol?

There are so many amazing and unique contestants this year on American Idol. One Contestant that just blows me away every time he performs is 16 year old David Archuleta! His voice is just incredible and I literally get chills every time he sings! This young man will go far and hopefully make it to the top two. So who are you rooting for on American Idol this season?

Here he is singing one of my absolute favorite songs! O and did I mention he can play the piano? Isn't he just amazing?

And here he is singing for the Season One American Idol Contestants a few years back!
