We all know we need to do it though I seem to procrastinate so much that it ends up being Summer and then well I am just to busy to worry about deep cleaning the depths of every corner of my house!

I am in the process of moving my office to a new space right next to my husband's, lucky me. So I have decided I have too much stuff and I need to gain a little bit more room. Through Sunday all remaining items are 50% off including wee squeak shoes and a few items from last Summer's Breeze collection. You can find the sale here.

On the subject of the holes in my tees - thanks for your ideas. I don't wear belts and most days anymore I live in track pants so it cant be my zipper. I am going to try the seat belt theory Mary and see what happens. I am glad to know that I am not the only one!

And I just love this photo. To be this young and not have a worry in the world and be so Free......

Me Time

Today I made the courageous trip back to the gym for some quality Me time. I have been MIA since the week of Christmas except for when I went on Jan 4th but one time does not count. Family life has been crazy hectic and I need to just jump back in. And since when are my legs made of jello? They are seriously aching now and I have a hard time walking, guess I can blame the person in charge who made me do the lunges and sumo squats.

I have also made a few upcycled dresses for my girls this week. I think they are really fun and wow what a great use for all of my t-shirts that magically all have holes in them on the same spot? What is with that? Can anyone tell me why every T I own eventually and sometimes only after a few "wears" acquires one or more holes on the waistline? So depressing when you spend $30+ on a cute blinged up tee only to have it get holes after a couple wears.

I also wanted to let you all know I have moved up and down in sizing. I will have some designs in 12 mos or 12-18 mos and some in size 10 girls as you all have requested.

Oh and thank you all for your kind thoughts regarding our family fish. I am standing strong and unless she finds me at a week point, I don't plan on getting another one for quite some time!

On the subject of Pets

Only a couple more weeks until the site will be all updated and ready to go! The week of March 8th is the Cherish launch and I can hardly wait.

Leah did a wonderful job as always photographing some of the pieces. They have had "feet" upon "feet" of snow so we opted for some indoor shots which turned out so sweet! I just love this pattern. It is such a sweet dress with a vintage flair and of course 2 pockets for her treasures!

This week has been more than hectic here. Our beta fish Bronco decided to explore world outside of his fishbowl and I found the poor guy after church on Sunday. No jokes he must have been out of water for 2 hours and when I touched him he moved so I threw him back in. He only made for another 6 hours and then I had that doomed feeling of telling my oldest. She has such a soft heart and I thought since I took care of the fish maybe she would not notice...all us moms seem to take care of the pets they promise to help with right? Well the second she got home it was the first thing she noticed, guess I can't win.

I have also been working on Summer designs and I enjoy it so much because it reminds me that Summer will soon be here and I will not be freezing any longer. I miss my flip flops and deciding what color nail polish to wear. I would wear them in the winter if I did not think I would get frostbite.

Can we play outside?

So it's snowing again here. Just when it melts it comes right back and I am so ready for warm sun! Kids amaze me. Even if it is 10 below outside they insist it is warm enough to ride bikes. Now that is resilience! It will be nice when I can let the girls go play in our yard which is in permafrost until April.

On another note, "Cherish" will launch the week of March 8th. Once we get closer and I have all my ducks in a row I will pinpoint a date for you. It will all be available online through the website. I am not yet doing home shows or selling through consultants but we will int he near future.

The collection is a colorful blend of spring colors with lots of comfy knits and I have 5 new styles to share with you that are all my own and I know you will love them! My girls love soft knits and like to dress them up and so with an added bit of girlishness we all win!

Spring Anyone?

I am so happy to be able to share some photos of what is to come! Kelly did such a wonderful job! This sweet little dress is sure to be one of her favorites and I love the vintage ruffle shrug too!

Spring will be released mid March and all of it ready to ship. These little pretties may be released early in a pre-release spring sale so you get them in time for your spring photos and most important Easter. Yes Easter I can't believe it that it is already coming. I am actually excited because Easter means warm weather is on the horizon and I am so over this cold dry weather here in Colorado.

I have lots more to share to check back for some sweet little previews!

Spring samples are out the door on their way to be photographed and I simply can't wait to see the photos!

A few new patterns and styles to share and also new knits that I am sure you will will too. I adore the 2 new women's pieces and I know you will too...comfort with a bit of girliness. Is that even a word?

I cannot even believe that it is almost Valentine's Day! Where the heck did January go anyhow? I love Valentine's Day and used to love making and decorating my card box in school. Remember those? I helped my 7 yr old finish hers up last night and turned out pretty sweet.

Well enjoy the little sneak of some the pretties and have a great Tuesday.

Yum. Thanks to Erin for sending me some yummy sunshine in a box from AZ. My daughters love to bake and with things being so hectic lately it was a good excuse to make a mess of the kitchen that I forgot I even have. Homemade Lemon bars in the dead of a Colorado winter did us some good ;)

"Cherish" is in the works and I hope to be able to share some sneak peek photos next week so check back. So exciting just cant wait.

I also wanted to thank you all for your kind words and prayers. It is amazing how many wonderful people I have surrounded myself with and it reminds me of just how luck I am. My dad is recovering well after his 3rd and last surgery and now all we need is time. My father in law is still in ICU almost 5 weeks now. Gaining his strength every day and we hope to move him into a long term care facility this week. My grandpa is recovering from his heart attack and now receiving radiation treatments for the cancer that was discovered during his hospital stay. Certainly a challenge to have 3 very important men in my life all struggling at the same time with life threatening conditions. Really makes you look at life in a new light and be thankful for all that I have and all that I am.

I would love to do a giveaway just as a sweet thank you to all for your support and friendships ;). So leave a comment and I will do a random drawing and I promise it will be good. I am oozing with creativity now and begging for some Spring so I just might need to get out my stacks of fabric and scissors and create something new ;)
