Facebook store!

Facebook now has a store front page :) So now instead of dealing with domain and webpages and no hits, I can reach all of my fans and more through a website I already visit everyday! I am working on getting my items on facebook so my fans can order them, I already have a nibbler hopefully she bites! So right now I am running a contest for a free bow of your choice, you can enter via facebook or this blog. Want to enter? All you have to do is leave a comment on this page and you are automaticlly entered to win! Deadline to enter is Saturday at 5pm and results will be listed shortly after!

I am very excited about getting some new items in the works! I have a very long to do list which includes, but is not limited to... tag blankets, pillow case dresses, infant shoes, wipe cases, pacifier clips, and more!!! So keep checking back for updates!

Now for a personal update! I moved out of my parents house, I live in Fort Smith Arkansas with my best friend Linsday, her fiance Andy, Brooklyn and soon a 4th roommate Juddson, the guy I am currently "talking" too(he isn't "moving in with me" He is taking the spare bedroom. So with that being said I'm sure you can guess that Nick and I are no longer seeing each other, it ended very badly! Oh well, his loss I guess :)

Im still alive!

I knew a blog was not the best idea in the world, but now I have my laptop so maybe I will do a better job at keeping up(fingers crossed)!!! So a lot has been going on! My divorce is final (Oct 20)Alex and I are getting alone great-I am very glad we are still close! I have an AMAZING guy in my life now, his name is Nick, We have known each other for almost 4 years now we were very close friends from the begining! He was the first person to know I was pregnant with my daughter! Right now he is in Korea, but he will be home fro 30 days on Wednesday and I am so excited! We have been talking for 3 months now and will try to take the next step when he gets home! After the 30 days goes back to Korea until March. Then he gets another 30 days, during which we are planning a 10 day trip to Florida which includes a 3 day cruise! Then he goes to Germany- he will be stationed there fro 2 years so hopefully I will get to see him like every 6 months!!! So anyways thats where my life is right now! As far as Little B's goes, Im in a slump. but I am branching out into other items, so hopefully that will get me jump started! My ultimate goal is to open up my own store! So fingers crossed that I can do that in the next year or so! Here are my 2 new frames I will be adding to the site very soon!

I feel sometimes like I suck at life!!!

Anyone else ever have that feeling? Like you can't do anything right I am talking right down to the simple things like sleeping!!! I can't sleep right!!!!!!!!! I stay up til 4 or 5 am talking to Alex, which isnt healthy for me, and then I sleep until 2 pm, this is wrong fro me!!! I am not some college summer slacker! I am a mom!!!! 22 years old and responsible for another human life. I feel like in order to be everything that she needs I have to change everything about me because ITS ALL WRONG!!!!! And apparently there are people out there who agree with me, I could never do anything rigth for Alex, thats why were not together, I could never do anything right in the military thats why I got passed over for EVERYTHING!!!! I can't even keep up this stupid stupid blog!!! I can't sell my effin bows! I have invested time and money and other peoples money into a hobby that is going NO WHERE!!!!!! Wow I am a failure!

Insert witty title here!!!

I can'te even begin to explain how much I am ready for my life to be back to normal! I wish I knew where I was going to end up so I could plan accordingly! I really want to go home, with all my heart I want to go home, but he has to ask me, and I'm not too sure that will ever happen! All I can do is wish and pray! both of which I have been doing non stop! But AHHHHHHH I wanna scream at the thought of another day in my parents house! I can't stand it here! Don't get me wrong I love them and appreciate them letting us stay here, But I can;t take being treated like I am 12, do this do that, clean your room, don't stay up til 1 am! Just one little break would be nice! UGH!!!

Ok enough of the rant! I created a little tutorial for a ribbon fish I thought I might share with you guys. Brooklyn loves him, she wants one in pink, However I am not sure why she needs a pink fish!

Start out with 6 inches in your color choice of 7/8 grosgrain ribbon, Dovetail and heat seal the ends!

Fold about halfway at a 90 degree angle, making an L

Bring the other tail up crossing over the first one creating a point <

It should look like this

Crease and secure( I used a needle and thread, you can secure how ever you like)

Trim your thread, then glue 3/8 inch ribbon of the same color to cover your thread or wire

Here is my completed fish, I trimmed down the tail on each side, you can leave yours long if you like, its personal preference!

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, more to come!

A Monumental Night!!!

Yes! A monumental night because of a bath! Some time last year-around June or July- Brooklyn was at my parents house while I was working and Alex was deployed, durring her two week stay she got to a point where she was TERRIFIED of the bath, we had been here before and it only lasted a few weeks, so I thought it would blow over in a week or tow, and we just kept pushing on. It was horrible. I am not a believer in pushing your child to do something they are scared of, but she can't exactly go with out a bath. So she would get wiped down with a wash rag most days and on days when a bath was necessary, it was a two person job. one to hold her down and another to wash her! She refused to sit down and just SCREAMED the whole time. We had been trying to think of ways to make it more fun, so we stopped calling it a bath, insead it was playing in the water. Then either my mother or I would let her in the bathroom with us while we took a bath, she started off playing in our water out side the tub, a few weeks later we progressed to playing in the bath tub with either my mom or I, then today she ASKED to take a bath!!! She asked if I would take one with her. I ran the water and got her in, and I sat on the toilet, she kept asking if I was getting in I would just say in a little while. She took the whole bath alone and didn't cry one single time! I am SOOO proud! So to celebrate I am letting her stay up a little late to have Mother/Daughter Movie/Popcorn nigth!

The reason I have never been good with keeping up a blog is I feel like I never have anything to say that is worth reading. Should I really have to strain my self to come up with something to fill these blanks with? I live a normal life, I guess, nothing exciting ever happens! The most exciting thing I did today was have my daughters pictures taken. BTW they turned out amazing! So anywhoo. I am doing this to promote my site, I want people to buy my things. But I feel like I will never get to there because I have nothing to say. Oh well at least I can try. I am just in a weird mood today.

We started out at Penney's to get our pictures taken. They take lunch from 2-3, we arrived at 2:55. There was already another lady there who had an appt at 3, no big deal. So when the lady comes back she tells them to go wait in the studio while she gets another customers pictures. Well I am standing in the lobby waiting for her to finish with the other customer when a lady and her son walk in, she looks up and asks if they have an appt. to which she answers that she doesn't. So she tells them to come back at 4 and she will get them right in, Completly ignoring the fact that I was there 15 min before her. I was PISSED! I grabbed Brooklyn and stated very loudly that I refused to deal with rude people and we left. I hope she heard me. So we ended up at Picture Me in Wal*Mart. I told Krystal(our photographer) about our experience at Penney's and she said she has heard that a lot about this lady, and has seen her work and it isnt very well done! So in the long run, I saved money and probably got better pictures. An additional plus is she informed me that she is the only photographer there and they are looking for someone to help her out. So she gave me an application. Seeing as how I LOVE LOVE LOVE photography I think it would be perfect for me. So fingers crossed that it works out!

We picked up our check and items left over from the sale yesterday. I had way more left that I thought I would, but there were so many things there, a lot of people had a lot of items returned to them. I made 142!!! So $35 of that goes to my laptop as long as nothing comes up!!!

Don't forget that I have a sale going on, Buy 3 bows or a TuTu and get 1 bow free! Right now the tutus are not listed on the site(Will be later on in the week) But you can order one by emailing me at or by leaving a comment on this blog!
