Summer Sister Portraits

Yesterday I took the girls to Wegerzyn Park for a fun sister photo shoot. The weather was perfect! The temperature was in the high 70's with no humidity, lots of sunshine, and blue skies. The girls wore their cute matching sister dress sets. I had purchased the dress sets earlier this past spring from Mellonmonkeys on Etsy.

My little "thumb sucker" had a visit today with the orthodontist. She is six years old and hasn't kicked her bad habit quite yet. All of her front permanent teeth are all grown in and she is ruining them. Because of this, she is having a thumb habit corrector appliance put in within two weeks and it looks like braces may be in her future. She isn't exactly thrilled with this and still thinks that she will continue sucking her thumb once this appliance is in. She is such a defiant yet sweet little thing.

There is never a dull moment with these two, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

More Summer Flip Flop Styles

Over the weekend I found about nine pairs of flip flops left to customize so I decided to customize a few to add to my Etsy store. The first pair I pulled out was a brightly rainbow colored pair. The first thing that came to my mind was how perfect these would be for a pool party. I added a few fun colored fish to them and accented them with some fun fringe green yarn that resembles seaweed. You can find them in my Etsy store HERE.

The next pair I found was black with silver hearts. I decided to crochet some Monster High skulls to add to them since they had that punk rock look to them. You can find these fun Monster High Flip Flops HERE.

The last pair I had customized a little while ago. I liked the flower pattern on these. I decided to crochet a flower appliqué that resembled the flowers within the pattern on them. You can find these pretty Navy Daisy Flower Flip Flops HERE.

Lalaloopsy Dolly Fun with Sugar3

Sugar3 is having their All Dolled Up launch today. I made an adorable Mint E. Stripes Lalaloopsy purse to match a dress Karen of Layla*and*Stitch created, and there is a beautiful bow and necklace set made by Tutu Cute Boutique to match as well.

There is a lot of detail on this little purse. I added a lot of beads, sequins, Swarovski crystal beads, and buttons to the little Christmas tree on the front.

Little peppermint buttons line the pink ruffle scallop trimmed purse flap. The aqua purse strap is also trimmed in a pink ruffle stitch.

A lot of detail was put into sweet Mint E. Stripes' face. I used both 100% cotton yarn and thread to create her.

The launch has already started and you can visit Sugar3's Facebook page HERE for your chance to bid to win. The launch is going on until Wednesday, July 3rd, at 3 pm. CST.  photo kittysiggie.jpg
