48 days until Christmas!!???!

Wow! Not sure what else to say... just wow! The days are going so fast, it's impossible to believe! Been busy with toys .... shopping, selling... making lists (the kids, that is!). The lists my kids have made are the longest yet this year! My 10 year old is still asking for the Wii but seeing as how he has an xbox 360, that seems a bit silly to me. We shall see though, haven't seen one in any stores so I probably couldn't find it anyway!

I've been slowly going through my children's rooms and closets in hopes of reducing the amount of "stuff" they have crammed in every crevice and corner. I'm also trying to come up with new ways to organize so I'll take any ideas anyone would like to throw my way!

I love this time of year. There's a chill in the air and Christmas is right around the corner. My 3 kids all still believe in Santa and this may be the last year for my oldest. He'll be 11 just before Christmas and I'm still amazed that he continues to believe and am planning to enjoy it as much as I can this year.

I haven't added too many new things to my Boutique in the past few weeks but have put all winter clothing and Kate Mack on sale. The Monkey Toes handpainted shoes are a super cute item that's getting loads of praise and the Ah Goo Baby Plush Diaper changing pad is an absolutely incredible gift for any expectant Mommy.

You can check out all the new fun things I've got going on in my ebay store Here. It's been a busy couple of weeks!

I've been thinking of running a contest or two here and/or on my site and would love to hear ideas about that! I'd be giving away either a GC to my store or a super cute pair of handpainted socks.

Back soon!

Monkey Toes Shoes

I am so excited about a new product now available at our store! These are by far the cutest little shoes I've ever seen and having a little girl myself who is so into ladybugs and piggies, I'm sure these will be a big hit!

These shoes are handpainted with non toxic paint and treated with a textile medium to ensure a long life.

These shoes would make a great gift.

Elastic no-tie laces are included. Shoes and Mary Janes are packaged in a cellophane bag tied with a gingham ribbon. Too cute!

These are only a few of the ones available, there are also Cows, Buzzy Bees, Boogie Monster, Luv Bugs, Spiders and Monkeys.

The Frogs, Bees, Ladybugs and Piggies are also available with matching handpainted socks!

Seriously cute!!

So be sure to come check them out, along with the many new jewelry and clothing items recently added.

Christmas is just around the corner and I have many neices and nephews that I know would just LOVE these shoes and I'm so looking forward to seeing them on their tiny little feet!

72 Days until Christmas!

Can you believe it? I can't! Seriously, it seems like we just went through this. The commercials, Santa lists, Shopping.... I can't believe how close it is getting. Of course, first we have Halloween which we are getting ready for. The kids have already picked out their costumes and are unpatiently awaiting the 31st. It's a big deal for us as there is a huge block party with a DJ, food and all sorts of fun stuff. This after all the kids hit about 200 houses to trick-or-treat. It's a blast so the kids are asking daily how many days left.

Once we get past that, I can concentrate on Christmas and getting my new inventory listed. For now, any toys I am selling are listed in my
ebay store. Within the next few weeks, I am hoping to get many new toys also listed on my Website.

So be sure to stay tuned!

Holidays are nearing!

With Christmas almost upon us (Can you believe it??? 91 days!!), it's time to start making our lists. My kids have, of course, already started their lists and the new toys for the year haven't even come out yet! Of course, those will have to be added too, making their lists seriously long. Letters to Santa will be going out, then out again as more items are added. So far we've got lots of Barbie Island princess on one list and a Wii on another.

I'm having a hard time getting myself into the whole Christmas shopping thing yet but I'm working on it because I like to be done by Thanksgiving (doesn't mean I always am though!) That way I can concentrate on ebay sales for Christmas, then just enjoy the holiday.

So here's a question ~ When do you get your holiday shopping done? Are you a last minute Christmas eve shopper? A black Friday shopper who is all done by the Saturday after Thanksgiving? Somewhere in between?

Another busy day!

I was able to get more jewelry listed today, some beautiful pieces!

This Godmother bracelet is simply stunning and such a thoughtful gift for that wonderful person you choose as your childs Godmother. Made with sterling silver and chinese round crystals.

This beautiful sterling silver Fist Communion Bracelet is just as stunning! I plan to give one to my daughter next year and can't wait!

A wonderful keepsake gift from godparents, grandparents or parents.

Tomorrow is Sunday so I'm thinking we'll take a lazy day, forget about work and enjoy the rain. Yes, rain. 90 degrees 3 days ago and now it's raining! The kids have a jumping rope contest planned so it should prove to be interesting!!

Enjoy your weekend (what's left of it!)

Been a busy week & lots of new stuff!

It's been a busy week of meeting with suppliers and organizing our "stuff". I try very hard to bring into my store items that will appeal to my customers. There are a lot of clothes out there that seem to be "IT" but honestly, I prefer more "childlike" items that reflect a childs joy for life. We've also added more custom jewelry with loads more available in the next week or so!

One of my favorite new items is this gorgeous mothers bracelet

Another is this fabulous nursing necklace

Seriously, I would have been thrilled to have one of these when my tots were nursing a few years ago. Instead, they pulled out my hair piece by piece which well... just plain hurts! I LOVE these!

We also have a few new
Baby Nay capri sets in this week so come check them out.

We also have some new
Rosaries in, one can be done in your choice of colors, the other is pearls! Totally gorgeous.

So be sure to stop by soon and see all the fun new stuff we've been adding!

Don't forget Baby Shower Gifts

I know, I've already mentioned these a while back but I just can't say enough good things about them!! My kids are all out of diapers now (thank goodness!!) but I would have done just about anything to have one of these a few years back!

Now, doesn't that baby look comfy? This is the "CHA CHA" design which is my favorite as I'm crazy about stripes! I have given one of these to every baby shower I've been to this year and they have been THE big HIT of the shower! These little suckers are all the rave with movie stars and it's clear why!

And look how tiny it rolls up! They're made with memory-foam for cripes sake! The ultimate in baby comfort, which I gotta tell ya is a great thing when your baby is screaming and carrying on and on over the discomfort of a regular changing pad! Try and lay one of those non-padded pads on those hard restroom changing tables and see how loud the little one gets!

Be the hit of the party and make sure to take one to the next baby shower you're roped into!
