Hello Fabulous!

Do ya'll remember this little gal?  She is the one who won our first annual "Miss Fabulous" photo contest!  On the blog I'll refer to her as Miss A.  Isn't she so pretty?  She's a natural at this modeling stuff.  I figured who better to show off our limited line of super cute ruffle pants than her.
 "Hello, Fabulous!"  is what comes to mind when I saw her doing this shot.  She looks so comfortable in front of the camera, very confident...really fabulous, don't you think?  Not to mention, I really love these chevron stripe pants!

 Above, she's sporting a bit of a fun and funky pairing of our strawberry stripe ruffles with one of our very versatile pillowcase tops.  These little tops are great.  They can be layered for when it's cool out or can be worn solo in the warmer seasons.  I love that!  Besides the cutey factor, that makes it a great value all on it's own.  Mama of six here loves that for sure! I'm always thinking like a consumer and trying to find the best value in the items I make and purchase.
 Let's not forget that this little top "grows" with your girl, too.  The tie is adjustable, which make is very wearable for multiple seasons, yay!
 These shots turned out so good of her that I had to show her off with mutliple pics of the same outfit.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  This shot above shows something that I just love about the ruffle pants:  the fludity of the pant leg (it's especially great on my knit ruffle pants, they really flow!).  The movement in the ruffle reminds me of a little girls skirt "swishing" as she's playing and skipping about.  Have you ever noticed that?  I think when I'm out and about with my own girls, it is that swishing that catches so many people's eyes and then the rest of the outfit.  What do you think?  pay attention and see the next time your little gal dons a pair of these!

Now that she's looking so cool and relaxed, I'm going to sign off .  I need to stay cool and relaxed as I have a very packed day.  I have some monogramming to get kicked out, steaming, organizing, and packing to do all before I pick my girls up from school today.  Tomorrow I hit the "big time" in Columbia at the Jr. League's
Holiday Market
...5 days of shopping bliss.  I can hardly wait to check it all out myself. I'll take my camera so I can report back to you here.  I'll share all the goodies I find with you:) 
Until next time... have a
Fabulous  Day!

Merriment is on it's way!

Okay, so Merriment of the Season is really underway around here.  Our lovely neighbors, Jen and Scott, have really just out done themselves and put the pressure on-lol.  Their porch and front door look so festive, warm, and welcoming.  Lauren, my oldest daughter, announced just a bit ago on Facebook that she has their tree up and decorated!  To top it off, another neighbor just drove past our house sporting a freshly cut, real tree! Oh, the pressure...
I know I shouldn't fret as I have yet to miss a Christmas done up in style and to the hilt, but this year just seems so packed and busy already.  I used to go crazy with it all, but now have reeled myself in quite a lot so as not to drive myself mad.  Do you know what I mean?  I'm the kind of girl that can get really wrapped up in the details (and bogged down by them, too).  That just isn't always a fun and festive way to feel, right?  I guess, what I'm trying to say is that I've come to the conclusion that I don't really, really have to knock myself out to some crazy extent.  Maybe becoming a bit older and a lot wiser really is a good thing.  Check this:  I actually declined baking homemade pies for the teachers this year for Thanksgiving!!!  It about killed me to say no, but my plate was just too full this year and I decidecd to be very mature and responsible and do the right thing.  And for me and my family, the right thing to do was not bake this year for that occasion.  The teachers are wonderful and much appreciated, but I said no and it actually felt good...in the end bringing myself and my own family more merriment!  Make sense?  Oh, I'm just such a big girl now :)
Yes, indeed, Merriment is on it's way in so many forms. Lots of prep going on here and our ornaments will soon be out and we'll be decking these halls in no time!
Stay tuned as I'll be posting very soon a fun and festive giveaway that you won't want to miss.  Just think...a little "Fabulous Merriment" of your very own could soon be yours, so get ready to round up your gal pals and be prepared for a little contest !!

We're off, we're off...

We're off to make new friends! (just sing along to the Wizard of Oz tune) Very soon we'll be heading over to Columbia,SC to make new friends, meet lots of great gals, and help raise some much needed funds for charity by setting up shop there for a bit.  I've been told by so many gals that frequent my booth and shop my collections that this show is a "must do".  Quite honestly, it cost a very pretty penny to participate in, so my fingers are crossed really hard that it's a great time and a great show for FGC and everyone that visits the event! There is a lot of excitement around this event, a lot of aniticpation of a really fun time for all. 

I think we're going to have a ball over there.  My Whitney is going with me to help out.  This show is really quite an "event" from what I understand.  It's a 5 day deal!  It goes from morning 'til night on the first two days.  The gals of the Jr. League host a Preview party on night one and a Ladies Night Out on evening two...bar and all.  Everyone should be quite Merry indeed!  Oh, and on Friday evening, they host PJ's with Santa!!  I'm thinking these gals over in Columbia really know how to throw a party and raise some funds $$$ for their cause!

Being in a Merry Mood myself, FGC will be offering
This is our last show and big selling opportunity of the year.  I'd like to go out with a "bang" , decorate your Holidays with some beautiful clothing and gifts, and "ring" in the New Year on a Merry note for us all.  Be sure to check out our website,
and catch yourself a merry little sneak peek of what I'll have there.  I wish I had the time to put everything on my site to show you, but frankly, I just don't.  I'll try to post some other goodies to give you an idea of more FABULOUSNESS to come!

Are we there yet?

I feel like such a little kid...I just keep thinking and asking myself, "Are we there yet?" 
 Are we "where" you ask...well at the Christmas Made in the South show, of course.  This is my first true Holiday show to kick off  FGC's Holiday season.  So, that being said, I'm super excited.  It feels like tomorrow is never going to get here (that's opening day of the Holiday shopping extravaganza!)   

My big goal is to get down there early enough to do some shopping myself.  Yep, that's right!  I absolutelly love shows like this. I have to set a $ budget for myself or I could just go crazy with it all.  This is nothing like hum-drum "mall shopping".  These are few of a kind, original pieces.   It is such a treat to see all of the artwork and craftmanship.  There are so many different medias. It's super fun to see what all other people are skilled at doing and what they think up.  I'll for sure let you know how the show goes .
You know it...I'll keep you "posted" and let you know if we're there yet!!

Are We FAMOUS Yet?

Okay, so I'm on such a natural high right now!  My pieces were just shown on TV for the first time this morning!!  They were bragged  about on an ABC station out in AZ by a great gal by the name of Valery.  I'm pretty sure that if we lived closer, we'd be good friends.  She is new for me to work with and I'm really liking her!  I'm so excited, I can't even tell you.
These are a few of the aprons that were featured on the segment.  I'd show you the Holiday aprons that also made the cut, but I think you've seen them before.  Plus, you can see them all on the link below! 
Speaking of Holiday aprons...did I tell you I'll be debuting a new Mommy/Daughter apron duo for the Holidays?  It has ruffles and is super cute. I've put together a great fabric combo full of such fun colors for you girls to don this coming Holiday season.  I'll post those as soon as I can get them photographed, I promise! 
Well, my feet are now wet as my sweet Isabella asked me,
"Are we famous yet?"

Boo! said our Roaming Gnome...

Let me just say "thank you" for humoring me by checking out this post.  I just couldn't resist.  My Liliana was just so funny on Halloween Eve!  She absolutley refused to have her picture taken as you can see in the first picture...no cute little gnome with our "China Bride" and Lovely Ladybug.  She was definitely MIA and on the run...from the camera that is!
We were much more successful with our Grandbaby Gnome, though.  We were certain he wouldn't have a thing to do with sporting the beard, but much to our surprise he actually kept it on long enough for a full round of pics! 
So, I'm sure you're asking yourself the burning question of the day:
"Just where is the roaming gnome?"  Well, we spotted her in her natural habitat, apparently where she is the merriest little gnome ever,...in the lovely thicket near our home.
Yes, indeed, as night was falling the sweet little gnome made a grand appearance and frolicked about her woods.
We tried our best to be sly and not let her see us watching her, however, she was just too irresistibly cute and charming not to be drawn in by her playfulness.
Yes, our little roaming gnome even went so far as to in turn humor us with a delightful little game of hide and seek!
Peek a Boo!
Hope you all had a gloriously fun Halloween like we did!!
