We have had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We attended a Graduation Party, went swimming 2 days in a row, visited our loved ones we have lost, and just got back from a yummy barbeque with our beloved family! Now it is time for a little nap!
Happy Memorial Day!

Fun With Flip-Flops Continues...
I just finished a few more adorable pairs of flowered flip flops!
The daisy flip flops were custom made for a special mommy customer of mine. ;)
I really adore these, especially since the daisy is my absolute favorite flower, so I am going to be making me the same pair later on today.
And this next pair was made for another dear customer's young daughter. I really love the bright colors her daughter picked. Lots of fun!
I also forgot to mention yesterday that I listed the WILD cupcake hair clips I had shared earlier on Ebay.
You can find them HERE.Don't forget to search Wisterialane on Ebay for more sweet cupcake designs listed.

This morning started out like any other morning. I got Xiera on the school bus and planned on a funfilled day of shopping with Zelly Belly for Xiera's upcoming birthday. After breakfast I brought Zella into her room to figure out the daily dilemma...."What should she wear today?" After we settled on a cute Gymbo outfit, I laid her down to change her morning pull-up (Sadly yes....we are still not quite out of the potty training phase.) I began putting on her new pull up and shorts. Once they were around her legs, I asked if she was ready to sit up. She held out her hands and I took her by the wrists and hands and pulled her up into a sitting position. That is when something went VERY wrong! Zella began crying and holding her right wrist. It wasn't a normal cry. It was a cry of serious pain. I began looking her wrist and arm over. I tried to move her wrist and she screamed even louder. I knew something was seriously wrong and called hubby upstairs. He examined her wrist and arm and told me to call the doctor immediately. She just kept holding her wrist close to her body sobbing. I felt so completely helpless and utterly guilty! I took her in to see our pediatrician soon after. Once the doctor came in to look at her wrist, she began moving her wrist around and pulled her arm back against her body in an upward motion. Then something popped back into place, and immediately she was all better and able to move her arm as if nothing even happened. The doctor informed me that she had what is known as Nursemaid's Elbow. It is the dislocation of the elbow joint caused by a sudden tug of the extended arm. The doctor said this is seen a lot in children between 1-3 years of age. She did not need to have an x-ray done or wear a sling or cast home. I was so overwhelmed with relief!
NEVER again will I pull a young child by their wrist or hands, even the slightest, for any reason what so ever! I have learned my lesson! So PLEASE pass this information around so that you can spare a child from this painful and traumatic experience.

WILD Cupcake Party!
My precious little niece Gracie who recently celebrated her first birthday, came to play today and modeled an ADORABLE birthday cupcake set made by my talented friend Sharon of *Mimisgirls*. I made the little plush cupcake prop to match.
Isn't she the cutest thing?
I also made a sweet little cupcake clippie to match!
Keep a look out for this adorable set and hair clippies to match next week on Ebay for Wisterialane's upcoming sweets launch!

Fun With Flip-Flops
This past weekend we saw rain, rain, and more rain. Glancing out my back window, I can see more rain coming down as I type. It isn't suppose to stop until Wednesday. Well I have been having fun indoors embellishing flip flops while dreaming of the warm sun and walks on the beach with sand squishing in between my toes.
I just finished 2 custom pairs of flipflops for a customer of mine and her daughter. She said that she wanted hers black with a splash of color.
Her daughter loves the color pink so I had a bit of fun designing these. And what little girl doesn't love hearts?
Because of all of this rain, I have big plans to update my Etsy store. It definitely is in need of some new items. Maybe some new hair accessories, hats, or flip flops? What would you like to see in my store? Maybe there was a past design I had listed on Ebay awhile back that you liked? Or maybe a custom design you saw pictured on here? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Custom Baby Bloomers
Today I finished an adorable pair of baby bloomers for a customer of mine. They are for her baby boy who is turning one. She wanted them simple in a natural beige with pockets.
I added white stitching around the back pockets to help them stand out a bit more. I think they turned out really cute.
