Poofy Cheeks: Taking a Spring Break

March 23, 2013

Taking a Spring Break

Things have been a bit quiet around the blog the past week or so. They are going to remain quiet because I decided to take the next week completely off from blogging and spend quality time with my kiddos as well as get some other big projects done. I have been going a million miles a minute the past few weeks and I just need.a.break. On top of that I seriously found 5 gray hairs last week my kids deserve a stress free momma every now and then. My shop has been bringing in a steady stream of sales, I have been getting email after email from people wanting logo, shop or business card designs, I sold on Very Jane last week (210 onesies sold out on the first day) and I am also gearing up for Snap and The Queen Bee Market which are now less than 30 days away. I need help – serious help – I need a crash course in ‘how to say no’!


I am going back to the blog conference Snap next month and I will also be selling at The Queen Bee Market while I am there. I am super excited because selling at The Queen Bee Market has been one of my personal goals since I was able to attend it last year. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I have been busy working out the details of my booth setup. I have spent countless hours brainstorming all of the details and how to get everything from Florida to Utah so I can still have an awesome booth, but thankfully that part is almost done. Now I just need to focus on making a lot more hair ties, headbands and some new secret products that I will be debuting soon.


I mentioned that I have been doing some designing lately – I figured I would share the wonderful gals I have been working with and some of the designs I have done for them. They have all been so patient with me and I am grateful for that. It seems over the past few weeks on top of everything else I just can’t catch a break health wise. We all passed around the flu, my husband had important doctor appointments out of town, I slipped on stairs at the beach last week and hurt my back and now Delilah is teething which has turned her into a fussy nightmare. You would probably laugh hysterically if you came to my house --- me designing logos on the computer sitting straight up because my back is killing me while trying to console a crying baby and my boys sneaking into the pantry for countless fruit snacks without me knowing until I found the wrappers sticking out from under the couch. Oye! Sometimes I think the events in my home would make for a very entertaining reality TV show.

Here are some of the designs I have been working on – check these creative ladies out because you are bound to find something awesome!!
