Here is my friend Tracey with the purse I made her.She wanted the pockets on the outside and I love how it turned out. I think I will call this one -- The Tracey!

She took all these fabulous photos for me! She also helps me out with graphic needs for my business. She and her hubby Tony rock....not to mention her sweet daughter, Bella!

Good Friends....

My friend, Krista, ordered some Reusable Sandwich/Snack bags from me and then offered to sell a pile of them too. Here is the order I just finished and mailed off to Seattle today.

I could not have done this order without help from my friend, Susan, who is now cutting out the bags for me. This has saved me tons of time and headaches. Hopefully the headaches have not transfered to Susan now :).
It feels so good to have such giving friends! Thanks tons you two!

Photo Shoot!

One day I was in Hip Stitch buying more fabric! When Suzanne, one of the owners, was telling me about a photographer that took some great pictures of the store.

She was showing me some of the pictures on the photographer's blog when I saw that she was holding mini photo session at the UNM Duck Pond or the Bosque. With Hannah's 5th birthday coming up, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to get her picture done. So, I emailed her.

Not five minutes later, who walks in the door -- the photographer, Ellen Benson! She was bringing Hip Stitch the CD of all the pictures. I introduced myself and told her I just emailed her about a photo shoot.

Meanwhile, we all began to look at the photo CD. I was the Artist of the month at Hip Stitch that month and I began to see my products in the photos and said so. Ellen asked if I made these items and said, "Let's do a swap!!"

And so, during the first weekend in October, we met in the Bosque and she shot some great photos of my family. They turned out great!!

Thanks Ellen and Hip Stitch!

Look who learned how to carry Katie Kat...

Hannah is so proud of herself for learning how to pick up Katie Kat. She loves to carry her like a baby. Katie is very patient. I think she is getting tired of being carried around though, I have not see Katie run that fast ever. :)
Katie is 18 years old. Hannah is 4 years old.

A new swing just in time for spring.....

Here is our new swing in the front yard. I came home after running errands and found my Hannah swinging on her new swing. I loved coming home to this!
