MIA for a While

I will be MIA for about the next two weeks. I have a vacation coming up, and I have yet to pack.

I'm so excited though. It's my favorite vacation destination....
Disney World here I come!

Mommy Monday Review - Disney 2 in 1 Harness Buddy - Mickey


Toys R Us

A fun and friendly way to keep kids close in crowds. Latch on to the tail of the backpack and you have your little ones safely in tow. A VELCRO® brand closure pocket on the back holds kids stuff. It looks cute and gives you peace of mind for family outings. Machine washable. For ages 18 and u...

Great backpack and harness!

Pros: Useful, Strong Construction, Lightweight, Easy To Install

Best Uses: Toddlers

Describe Yourself: First Time Parent

I know there are a lot of people out there that are against harnesses, but sometimes toddlers don't leave you much of an option when they want to walk but won't hold your hand.

I bought this for my 2 year old daughter, for our upcoming trip to Disney World. She adores it! She thinks it's funny when I hold the strap and she can't walk any farther.

You can remove the parent strap and just let the child carry it as a backpack. Mickey has a small pocket that you can fit sunglasses, or something in.

Both Mickey and the parent strap are VERY soft. It seems comfy, and while it is slightly big for my petite 2 yr old, we both like it a lot!

Current "Obsessions"

Do you have any current "obsessions"? Any craft supply you are currently addicted to? Any song you cannot stop singing? I challenge you to list 5 current obsessions you have. Post your answers on your own blog, and encourage others to do the same!

My 5 Current Obsessions
1) David Cook's album - I absolutely love every song on it. It is a FABULOUS rock n' roll CD.

2) Buttons - I can't get enough of them. I use them on TONS of craft projects.

3) Hair Clips for my daughter - I love buying her unique and cute hair clips to go with her various outfits.

4) Disney World - Not that this one ever fades away, but with my trip coming up in *checks calendar* 23 days, I am just extra obsessed I guess.

5) Blogs/Twitter - I spend entirely too much time on the internet trying to find cool blogs and people to follow. Feel free to comment so I can check out your blog!

Custom Easter Basket - Just Completed!


I just finished an order for a custom Easter basket. She wanted an initial on it, to personalize it more for her daughter. So, I cut the letter "A" from felt, then glued and stitched it onto the basket.

The basket turned out bigger than I expected, but I'm sure that's ok.

I am so happy with how this turned out. I hope the buyer is just as happy.

Next year, I think I may sell these in my shop. Or, who knows, I may list these in my shop during the fall. They would make great birthday or Christmas gifts.
