We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. So awesome to have Asia home from college. We just hung out and spent a lot of time together. Since all the girls were together, we decided they could model some of the new Christmas skirts. So many shows in the next couple of weeks, so many fun new things that have been created for them. Hope to see you there!!!
I'm so Thankful for my wonderful Family!!

O.k. I decided to do a giveaway!!! So many of my family and friends live out of state, and were sad they couldn't be at our trunk show last night ( which was super fun by the way) Best cupcakes ever!!!!!
Anyway here's the deal leave a comment here and tell me a simple thing you're grateful for ( it is November) and I'll pick a random winner by Sunday. Easy smeasy. And you can enter to win even if you were at the trunk show. This is one of our newest totes, big and roomy with a raw silk and taffeta puff flower. I loooove giveaways!!!! Also if you have a private blog you'll need to send me your email so I can tell you if you've won. I know call me crazy for asking.
Let's see .... I'll start, hmmmm this is harder than I thought, I keep thinking of the obvious things, kids, husband, health.....but I'm thinking of something simple. ..I bought these mums the day after labor day lasy year ( beacause they were all a dollar) and my daughter was graduating from high school , so I was making her a lei for graduation. ( I was raised in Hawaii, tradition) So these mums were the cheapest flowers I could find. After I picked most of the flowers off, I decided to plant them. Well they are the flowers that keep on giving, because they are still blooming in our yard!! Piper just picked me a little boquet of them this morning. So that is something I was thankful for today.
Can't wait to hear from you!

My inspiration board
Sometimes I feel like the world just doesn't need another purse. Which in reality it really doesn't. I don't need another pair of shoes either. So why do I get all excited when I see a beautiful pair of shoes??? I think you must know what I mean. I'll be looking at Anthropologie or at Zappos and come across a beautiful shoe. It just makes me happy. I don't usually buy the shoe, ( usually out of my price limit) but I really enjoy looking at it and thinking what might I wear it with...
As a mom I totally use the expression " WEll kids in Africa are happy just to own ONE pair of shoes" when my kids want more. When my husband was in Africa, he realated how much they didn't have, but how happy they were ( along with many other wonderful strories, including him bathing naked by Victoria Falls, but I degress...) He did say when someone did make a little more money they did buy nicer shoes. Hmmmm interesting, maybe this shoe thing is universal.
As far as my business goes it's all about creating. I love to make things. There is so much fufillment, excitemant, pleasure out of creating something...whether that be babies, a meal, stories, or purses. So when I'm feeling a little guilty about making another purse, this quote is one of my favorites..
The dreamers are the saviors of the world....Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage these are the makers of the afterworld, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; with out them, laboring humanity would perish.
James Allen ' As A Man Thinketh'
My husband says follow Article 13....... ".....If there is anything virtuous, lovely ,praiseworthy or of good report, we seek after these things "
So what are you going to make today????????
