What's Going On?

There's a lot of change going on around our house and ultimately it is affecting the store. As many of your know I had our daughter just about 9 weeks ago now, I opened the store back up two weeks after with limited hours with hopes of expanding hours somewhat quickly. Fast forward to today and I am faced with the situation of again changing the store hours. My husband is having knee surgery in a week rendering me pretty much a single parent for awhile since he will not be able to move at all at first and then will have limited mobility for awhile. That coupled with a major change in our childcare options has led me to try to come up with new store hours.

I will be closed this week for a previously scheduled vacation and then will reopen March 3rd* with our new hours of Thurs-Sunday 12-6pm. *Pending my husbands surgery goes as planned.

I realize that I may lose some customers due to the recent frequent changes in schedule, but I appreciate all of those customers out there that are willing to be patient while my family and I figure out what works best for us and what we can make work.

Thank you!

Childrens concepts

Just some concepts for childrens room I threw together.

We just happen to be moving both of our kids rooms right now too-it's a mad dash to get it down before my husband's surgery but I've been playing with the palettes for each room-one boy and one girl and will show you what I've come up with for each-I didn't choose any of these. The common accent wall color is a pale yellow-not sure what I was thinking, I really don't use yellow that much!

A Little Valentine's Project

Just yesterday this cute boys print came in and immediately I knew I wanted to make something for E. Well in the spirit of Valentine's Day I decided to give one of the little guy ties a whirl. It was incredibly easy although I'd tweak a few things next time,but over all a pretty successful project.

Unfortunately my little guy wasn't in the mood for a photo shoot this morning even after being bribed with a cinnamon roll(hence the cinnamon roll residue on his chin!). I do love his little corduroy jacket though :)
So I ended up improvising! I pretty much new it was going to be a present more for me than him though! Happy Valentine's Day!

Oops I almost forgot... I've been working on this play size quilt top-I love how it turned out(not perfect but I'm not a perfectionist by any means) but I don't love how the pic turned out with my phone camera-I was way to impatient to wait for my camera to be at work!
