Time to put your Duds On!

Time for a Debut at
Fabulous Girl Clothing!

That’s right, we have big, BIG news here at FGC…we have a second label now.  I’m so excited about it, too!  You all have been asking for it and now I’m delivering. 
Now don’t get too excited like I’m going to do a full on line for boys because sadly, I’m not.  My intentions are to use this label on my baby boy items:  bibs, burp cloths, lovey blankets, etc.  ***Here’s the bonus***…I do plan on doing a few bowling shirts (button down shirts), neck ties, and perhaps even a few bow ties for us Southerners.  How does that sound?  Won’t that be Fabulous to be able to order a dress/outfit for your little gal and then coordinate a simple tie or shirt with your boy?  I think so, that's always fun!  Here is it:
You all probably know that I have five girls, but did you know that I also have one boy. Yep, right smack dab in the middle of all this crazy estrogen flying around our house is my boy, my Buddy Ruffis, my Buddy Boy.
 He’s my one and only and man, am I ever crazy about him!!  I always have been.  I adore each and every one of my lovely girls, so treasure our “girl time”, and thoroughly enjoy watching their sisterhood’s develop.  It’s the sweetest thing and beyond interesting to me as I’m the only girl in my family. Blah, blah, blah...I may have shared that with you before.  Anyhoo, you other mamas of boys know what I’m talking about with my boy.  Am I right or am I right???
So here he is many moons ago when he was just babe…..ahhhhh, right?  I remember this like it was literally yesterday!  I feel old saying this, but really, where has the time gone?  In a flash he's out of diapers and done with me carrying him on my hip and now towers over me.  I have to reach up to hug him!  6' 1"  tall, really, really?
He is so going to totally be like "MOM!" about me posting this pic.  Oh, this takes me back...he was going thru that phase where he didn't want to sleep in his own bed, he only wanted mama, we had put him to bed like 500 times.  Finally he stopped his carryin' on and we enjoyed the blissful silence for about  five whole minutes.  Ah, you know that bliss of peace and quiet, right.  Well I thought it best to check on him, so I very quietly opened our door that he had previously been banging on like a little mad man.  My grand plan was to sneak down the hall to peek at him.  I was very thoroughly savoring the sweet success of me holding my ground (which is so hard to do at times, especially when they just want YOU), but it only lasted a mili-second.  Yep!  There he was as silent as he could be just outside our bedroom door with that expression on his face like, "well, it took you long enough Mom...I'mmmmm waiiiitttiing".  Turned out to be too cute of a moment not to take a picture, laugh heartily, and still tell this story again agin.  Classic Buddy Boy!

And here he is now with me last August at Whitney's wedding….ahhhh right?  I think we look so cute together.  I miss him being a little boy, but I'm so excited for him and his future as my big Buddy Boy.  I know technically I'm supposed to keep his nick name under wraps now that he's 18 but, I figure, so what, big whoop!, I'm the mommy.  Is there such thing as a "poetic mommy license"?| No matter, it amuses me and at this very moment it makes me smile to share this with you.  So on that happy little note...

Time to put your Duds on!

Hippity Hoppity!

Hippity Hoppity…Easter is on it’s way!

Is it just me or is everyone else in the prep mode, too?  Are you also wondering how Easter  snuck up on you?  I sure am!  Theses holidays keep coming faster and faster it seems.  Hey, wait!  Does that mean I’m officially “getting older”?  oh, I think it does…how STINKY!
Anyhoo, on a brighter note, I just wanted to share with you my own version of button art, so I thought I’d post a few pictures. 

So these are for our mantle.  I just used some old frames I had purchased on clearance a few years ago. I knew when I came across them at TJMaxx that I'd eventually  need them.  Isn't that a great defense for why us women make purchases like this???

And these I made for my sister in law, Kim, and my niece, Emma.  
 I thought the cross would be a nice change from her regular Goddaughter gift of an Easter book.  Besides, she can hopefully enjoy it year after year.  Kim is a crafty girl herself, so I'm guessing she'll appreciate these pieces...which is so nice for me.  There's nothing worse than ABSOLUTELY LOVING and APPRECIATING  handmade gifts, giving them from the heart, and then the person receiving them is like, "oh, gee, thanks".  That's a  total let down, right?  That won't happen with these though, they'll "get it" :).  Besides, I treated them to "not on clearance" frames-lol.  These needed to match and they're just their style.
So the girls were out of school this week.  Our week was filled with sunny days at the beach and artwork.  I buy canvases a few times a year and let them paint.  They LOVE it!  Here is each of their versions of the Easter Bunny.  Who loves the "Picassy" on the right?  I think they're all very cute.  I love to encourage art with my girls.
Now because I want you all to have a fun filled Easter weekend I thought I'd leave you with just one more question in hopes that you all are properly prepared for the holiday:  
Do all of you ladies have your Easter Bonnet?

Happy Easter!!!

Wordless Wednesday: Fabulous Easter Ideas 2012

Could this button picture be any cuter?  I'm trying to be "wordless", but this is going to prove to be hard with all this cuteness! Check it out here for a complete "how to", plus what a great blog I discovered!  :  Adorable Easter Egg Picture
Above:  Paint chip garland.  Isn't this a great idea?  So clever indeed!

Gotta love the Peeps, right?  They're always cute and amusing.  

Here's another fabulous idea from Tip Junkie,

I couldn't resist just a little more button LOVE from 
 Auntie Lolo Crafts.  They're just too, too fun and cute not to share!

H.C.I.T.  How cute is this?  What a festive welcome this is, right?

Okay, so much for a "Wordless Wednesday"!!!  Apparently,  I'm incapable of staying quiet in the midst of all this
 Easter Celebration Cuteness...go figure!

Happy Easter, Ya'll!
