MLK Day Celebration and new products...

As you possibly know already, living in this country for me has been opening myself to a new History Book, MLK Day celebration is one of those Holidays that I normally miss talking about on my blog, normally, I'm catching up on orders, have the kids home with the sniffles and it just escapes from me to write something about it. But this year, yes, I am catching up on orders, and both kids have the sniffles, but, here I am, writing you as every week! It really is no surprise why this day is honored, and all the doors this person opened to all Americans really, but I found something peculiar on wikepedia, for intance, did you know that they also observe MLK day in the historic city of Hiroshima, Japan? MLK was not only an American hero, but his civil rights movement touched the hearts of many, many people all over the world.

We are not going to be making a "special sale" this week to celebrate MLK Day per say, but I do have some new items at spectacular and one could say, sale, prices on our Etsy Shop Lollipop Designs. Some of the new items are Baby and Toddler Blankets, made with beautiful, designer cotton fabrics and backed with minky and chenille, just adorable, and the prices are a steal!

On another note, we have some new additions to our My face Dollies patch, meet Mary, Emma, Emily, Mia and Imani, all new "adoptable" dollies from My Face Dollies, a lot of these dolls are OOAK and we do not offer the fabric options in our boutique, they also come with adorable accessories!!

And, last but not least, you simply must check out my Mom's new handbags, I have my eye on this one so please don't buy it! lol, but I have to collect more "good daughter points" to get it. But in all seriousness, Mom's bags are just awesome, and I'm not even exaggerating, the uses awesome fabrics inside and out, most of hem are OOAK, she obsesses over the materials she uses, all the terminations, all these bags will last you for such a long time! Check them out, she has fabulous fabrics!

As always, thanks so much for reading, I hope you all have a fantastic week!

Therese's Dolls

I wanted to share with you the My Face Dollies we created together for Therese's daughter and her friends {Therese's daughter's name is Natalie, just like mine, so, it's easy to get them confused lol} but they are a really cool trio of 12 year old pre-teens and they are totally into the dolls! I think they turned out so cute and the fabric coordination idea I think tied them all together.

Happy New Year Resolutions and SALE

Oh my! Happy 2009!! How was your Holiday Vacation? GREAT I hope. I'm going to quickly cross my fingers, close my eyes and say a little wish prayer for you to have an awesome 2009, filled with health, joy and opportunities. We ended up going to GA to my brother's house, boy, it's been such a long time since we are all able to spend the Holidays together, I'm one of 4 siblings, I'm in VA, Mickey, my brother, lives in GA with my Sister in Law, niece and nephew, then my younger brother, Carlos, moved to Chicago this past summer with his wife, and my baby sister who lives in Orlando with my parents. So, we're spread all over the place. It was a surprise for my parents that we would ALL be there, it was so much fun. The best gift of all, really.

I'm taking a minute of your time to let you know we've re-opened after the Holidays. With new sales on our website on the Nursing Covers {10% off} for those new mommies, and those of you who made the "better healthy choices" as a new year's resolution, nothing more healthy that breastfeeding your baby.

My Face Dollies has re-opened after the Holidays as well, these dollies are just SO adorable, let me tell you something about the dolls, we bought my daughters those very expensive "look like you" dolls that are similar to porcelain {you know which ones I mean} and had to stuck them in a plastic bin and take them to the attic yesterday, after the expense, my daughters are scared of them, I don't blame them because I was always afraid of those type of dolls growing up so I know the feeling, in the mean time, they sleep every night with their soft, look alike My Face Dollies, how about that? These dolls are just SUCH a great gift idea, and we now have a link for you to share pictures of your little ones and your dolls, if you share the pics, then you're entered to win My Face Dollies Accessories Vouchers every month.

Another site that's up and running {although we're still working on adding products} is Thrifty Graphics, where we create ready-made, and custom made graphics for your websites, offer photo editing services, artistic photo effects, photo shoots for your products, web illustrations and more. All at GREAT prices. If you like our blog look and our website, then you need to check us out at Thrifty Graphics!

And last but not least, I have a TON of things on SALE at Etsy. Including fabrics {this is one of my New Year's resolutions} at prices under cost, some Clearance Nursing Covers and other GREAT deals, so, don't miss it out, I don't have a set time this sale will end so, without notice, we might take it all out again.
