i heart handmade

I just got some new business cards made. They are handmade and gorgeous. When I say handmade, I literally mean handmade... do you see all those beautiful itty bitty flowers on the wedding dress? Those were hand punched and glued on individually. And the itty bitty bow? painstakingly tied by hand. The gorgeous damask background? each one stamped by hand. That is why I heart handmade, a lot of time and effort has gone into making each item. Each item is unique. When ever I hand out my business card, I feel like I have just handed out a little piece of art.

If you heart handmade too, visit Etsy and stop by Imeon Design. She is the genius behind my little itty bitty pieces of handmade art.

sewing sunday

Zoe requested that I make matching outfits for her and her sister's doll. Actually what she said to me was something along the lines of "Mommy, my dolly and Pia's dolly NEEDS matching outfits!".

Ok, how can I say no to a request for matching outfits? I don't know if it's the control freak in me, but I ADORE matchy matchy! Nothing can be "too matching" in my opinion.

Oh by the way, I broke down and joined Twitter. Come follow me (I have no idea where I am going yet, but wherever it is, matchy, matchy will not be looked down upon !)

Happy Mommies Day!

Zoe made this for me for Mother's Day. She is learning about rhyming words in school and written on the flower pot is a little poem that she made up for me:

" Mommy, you are so sweet
Mommy, you are so nice
Mommy, please don't ever leave me
because you make the best rice!"

I think it's the best poem ever written by a 3 1/2 year old! Haha!

From one mommy to another... Happy Mommies Day!
