Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons. I think it's a toss up between fall and spring for me :) 
I enjoy the just about every detail that comes with fall. Pumpkin pie (with vanilla bean ice cream!!), knee high boots, my favorite sweaters coming out of storage, starbucks, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the changing of leaves, walks down a trail covered in fallen leaves, the smell of leaves....I could go on and on. 
Today I took my daughter out for a mini photo shoot to take pictures of my newest flower and had no idea where I was going to go. 
I knew I wanted it to be in the woods (a nice place in the woods where there are NO visible spiders!) with lots and lots of leaves. 
I didn't want to drive far (time management) so I just drove around until I found a nice place about 7-8 min from where I live. And get this, it had trails, BONUS!
 I can't wait to go back when I have more time to just walk and take in everything about nature that I love. 
The new flower that you see if my first ever done with a tutorial! Yup. 
Everything else I have ever made was made by me just playing with fabrics and seeing what I could make with them :) 
Me and anything with directions just do not get along! I am more of a figure-it-out-as-I-go person or I just wing it. I got this tutorial from Snazzie Drawers, ever heard of her? 
She's fabulous and puts my creations to shame!
 I just wish I knew how to sew better so that I could buy one of her sewing tutorials. I've been wanting to offer a different style of flower since I tend to get bored doing the same style over and over again. 
This is Snazzie Drawers London Tea Rose Tutorial and I made this one with an eco friendly felt and LOVE the results! Hope you like it too :)

I have fallen out of the blog world and I would love to get back in. I do love reading other blogs and being inspired by others that write blogs. 
I have a couple of other tutorials that I have attempted and can't wait to share them with you! Stay tuned....

My FIRST Matilda Jane Trunk Show!!

Ok, you can't see me but I am virtually dusting off the cob webs on my blog! PHEW! It's been a looong time since I have taken the time to do a blog spot. I have good reason to. I am hosting my FIRST ever Matilda Jane Clothing trunk show!! I am super excited about it too! The picture you see above is my FIRST ever MJC purchase, sad to say I bought it off of ebay and paid over retail for it. At the time I don't think I even knew it was MJC. I got it in the mail and fell in love. About a month or so later I had a friend hosting a MJC trunk show, at the time I had no idea what a trunk show was. I knew and trusted the lady hosting the show so I went ahead and bought several outfits from her show.....I was in love! Below are some of the outfits I got from their last fall collection, Field Trip....
Since then I have slowly transformed my daughters wardrobe into a Matilda Jane Clothing wardrobe! What I like about MJC is that not everyone down the street is wearing this brand. They have managed to become a highly sought after brand and most of the time if you do not order as soon as they release their spring or fall collection chances are there will be sell outs. I make sure I order asap to make sure I get the pcs I want! I must also mention how versatile their pcs are! I don't know how MJC manages it but items that I have bought LAST summer and fall still fit my daughter and it's been over a year! What's not to love about that!
Here are some from their spring collection, House of Clouds, from earlier this year...

Right now MJC is doing a wonderful promotion! If you spend $250 you will get the messenger bag (that you can get a look at if you click, here) for FREE, this weekend only! I have heard that this bag is fabulous!!! Another awesome deal is that no matter how big or small that your order is shipping is only $4 shipped to your door! Now that is awesome! Anytime there is a good shipping deal going on, I'm there! If you are not interested in the bag, no worries! No order is too small :) If you just want a pair of tights that is more than fine!
 They released their fall line, You and Me the 1st of Aug and there is still a lot of wonderful items you can still get! Here are just some of the pcs that I had ordered from their new fall collection...

The 2nd pic above was one that I took right when she got out of the shower (wasn't really in the mood for pics, ha!;)
Please don't think MJC is just for woman with girls! They released their BEST EVER woman's line this fall! So women, take a look by scrolling to the bottom of the page, here.
Above is a pic of a dress from their Home Room collection!! PERFECT for the girl that may have a dress code for the school that they attend. My daughter doesn't go to school yet but I still ordered from this collection since it was perfect for basics and also perfect for accessorizing to your hearts content :) And ya'll know how I love to accessorize!

So with the promotion going on and awesome shipping rate, now is the best time to start your MJC collection (if you haven't started already;)
Feel free to look at their entire collections Here
Email me at so that I can get you started on setting up your order. My show is for this weekend only so do NOT delay!!!!
