New Digs...

Well, not the blog, just the camera. I sold my SLR and all the lens's to raise money for Josh's adoption and because I just didn't have the time to learn to use it the correct way....or the money for a class....

So I was actually able to buy a nice refurbished Nikon cool pixL120 and still put money away for Josh's fees. Did I mention it's super easy to use...and it was inexpensive and has a warranty?  And now I have a camera to take adorable pics of my kiddo's this one ~


or this one ~


or wait, maybe this one ~


I didn't have to edit the pictures or do anything fancy, just point and shoot....Something this busy mama of six, almost seven really needs...

Not to mention I had a very beautiful model ;0   But I may be partial, she is after all my daughter....and she is modeling the latest fabric available....

New skirts and new pictures!!

I will start with the new picture of Josh we received today from another family. He is the cutest little guy ever!! The really cool thing or what I chose to believe as a God thing is that he and the little girl being adopted by this family will be only about an hour and half from us!! And because they are both older I think this may be important later on.

I just can't wait to get my hands on our little guy and hug him!!

OK, so enough with the mama bragging...on to the skirts. Just when I think I have had enough of sewing..and endless nights staying up late to accomplish this I get a surprise gift of pictures and then I just keep going!!

I mean look at him?!?!? He is so handsome and that smile!! Goodness. I will sew all day and night if that is what it takes to bring our boy home!!

I am going on here are the new skirts ready to ship. I also have a ton more fabric on order with new Christmas prints coming!!

(please forgive the poor quality of the pics, I sold my SLR camera to help pay for our adoption expenses)
