a rainy memorial day in houston

a fever and rain interrupted our fun memorial day plans, but at the end of the day i have no regrets for staying in, playing games with the kids, watching an awful tv movie with my husband on the couch and the fact that I can now see my son's face, neck, ears and forehead =)

jed

remember this name:
jedidiah's novelties

here's why!

I LOVE fabrics of all kinds - and would totally design/create clothes/interiors/bags, etc.. if it just weren't for the dang machine! we generally don't get along. I'm all about the idea/creative side, but the technical part of it eats my lunch. but enough about me.. meet my savior, Sarah at Jedidiah's Novelties. I met her last winter and loved her stuff and her from the moment I saw her. I found the above gap skirt for $4.99 at a consigment store and had her make the shirt for me to match. Isn't it great?

So, 4 hours and lots of cursing under my breath later.. I made this skirt for canon just because I wanted to a couple of months ago. Sarah came to my rescue and helped me finish the outfit with this adorable shirt:

so, if you're looking for something unique, check out her site  and tell her I sent ya =)
she has an Etsy store set up too - if you haven't toured that site yet, you're up for a treat. Lots of funky, home-made items for your shopping pleasure.

thanks for looking and I'll have more soon!

headed to the woodlands

we're back! if you've never been to destin, you should go. Just 10 hours from Houston, it's white sandy beaches and emerald green waters are breathtaking. I put some pics in the header to entice you =)

I have more photos to share, but for now I'm just trying to get another appt or 2 in the WOODLANDS for TUESDAY, May 22nd in the morning. (say 9:30 - noonish)

Please let me know asap if you're interested. There will be a travel fee, but the more I book, the less it will be!
