No emails!

Grrr...I am not getting any emails from my main account. Just in case you haven't heard from me you know what's wrong. Usually it happens with yahoo but this is the first time with this email which is not good because I use this one mostly for business. I have reported it and waiting for a response. I tried sending a couple of emails from my other email accounts and I didn't get them. I am sort of at a loss right now and you don't realize it until something like this happens how dependent you are on your computer! It is the same thing with cellphones--if I forgot mine at home I get agitated (just a little!).

Just added a new messenger and wristlet in a beautiful Japanese floral which I named Harmony.

I guess I can sign off and finish sewing a bag I started last night. Have a relaxing day!

Three Little Bunnies

Whew! I can finally catch my breath and sit down and post something. I have been busy prepping my room for painting and I still have to choose the paint color. Maybe this weekend I can swing by Lowe's or Home Depot.

I haven't had a chance to introduce our cute three little bunnies. I have always loved rabbits even before I knew I was born the Year of the Rabbit. Check your sign here. I like the description from the Chinese Restaurant's placemat the best where it says--Luckiest of all signs..... I have always wanted a pet rabbit since I was in second grade when I saw my friend's rabbit but alas I never got one so when my daughter wanted a pet there was no question about which one.

This is (left to right) Bella, Pumpkin and Miko. They are all dwarf rabbits and stay inside the house (they are litter trained). Bella and Pumpkin are Lionheads and Miko is a Holland Lop .

They get to spend a few hours a day outside. It is so much fun watching them--you never know what they will do!

Give me a little kissie Mikkie Boo!!

The dark bunny is Precious our first bunny but she passed away last September. We miss her a lot. She was more like a dog--she used to come running when you whistle and do a binky ( jump and twist in midair).

Until next time.

Christmas in July

I have been checking out my product inventory these past few days. Well I have a lot of Erika wristlets made especially this print Mod Island. I should take another picture as this one doesn't really do the print justice. I decided to give one to the first one who claims it here. Good luck!

Bedroom Redo

I have finally added my newest style, Joan, convertible messenger bag. I have also added some wristlets and will be adding more.

Finally my room and my daughter's are finally done! The wood floors are in and we are ready to paint and decorate. I have decided to do mine first. I have been so busy since Babycakes Boutique opened a year ago that I haven't gotten around to doing stuff for myself.

This is where my old closet was and I kept a little portion of it as an additional what else?? Fabric closet! To the right is the door to my studio, across it is my bed. To the left of the wall and further back is my new walk in closet. I haven't decided what color to paint my room yet but it would be lighter or the same than that of the studio.

I have always used white or light sheets but I am ready for some color. This would be my color palette. Just love Amy Butler's prints. They work so well together. I love pillows and it would be awesome to showcase these prints. I might be brave enough to tackle a patchwork duvet cover!

Just bought some pillow patterns and I am planning to put them where the blank wall is. It looks complicated but after reading the instructions it turned out to be pretty easy. Time consuming, maybe because of all the petals you have to cut, interface and hand sew.

Just love it. It was even featured in In Style magazine a few years back.

Gum drop pillows. I could just picture them on my floor in a couple of different prints. Ooh I can't wait! This is pretty easy too but requires a lot of stuffing.

That lady is going to be me in a few weeks! Stay tuned for updates. Have a productive day.

Joan-Convertible Messenger Bag

I hope everybody had a wonderful 4th of July. It was such a beautiful day until about 4:30 when it rained cats and dogs. I was so looking forward to grilling some fish and chicken that I have marinated the night before but it wasn't meant to be. We needed the rain though--well I guess I will be grilling for lunch today!

I have a some Joan (a feminine version of my eldest brother's name, Jonathan) messenger bags made a couple of months ago and had put a preview on my site. I did some test drive and had to make some minor changes. There were a couple of inquiries about when they are available for sale and I actually sold two to a very good but impatient customer. I am happy to say I am ready to unveil them this week, pictures are ready and will be adding them before the end of the week. It can be converted into a backpack or a stroller bag and it comes with 3 straps and a matching storage pouch--isn't that great?

I can't stay long I have to make a Genny and Raina set that came in yesterday morning.

Hip Hop Abs

Okay I just have to share this one. I was sipping coffee and turned on the TV and this infomercial was on. I am telling you this one is good--it got my attention and built up my excitement. I was glued to the tv as they offer you one special offer one after another. I have a lot of exercise DVDs and mind you I have been religiously using them these past few weeks plus Fit TV which is on 24 hours. Isn't that great? I figured there's no excuse for me not to workout. I could be working out while my I am doing laundry and thawing meat for dinner! I like to dance that's why most of my workout DVDs are dance routines--to cut the story short I did buy the Hip Hop Abs. I should have gone on line instead of calling and saved some time. All those extra offers that will be taken off your credit card if are you not careful. So I just said I don't have time and all I want is what is being offered on TV, period. $77.17 including shipping and I got an extra DVD for just making one payment instead of 3. I'll let you know when they get here!
