Breaking the law...

Anyone ever used to watch Beavis and Butthead?! NM connection there...

So I have been tagged a couple times recently (thanks Jen & Sydnei!) but I am going to deviate from the rules and just spew some random information about me.

I have a not so secret crush on Chris Isaak! *swoon*


I loved being pregnant and am sad I won't be ever again.


My most favorite car that I've owned was my first brand new one. A 1997 blue green chameleon Pontiac Firebird. That car was hot! *channeling Paris Hilton when I say that*


I am addicted to ChapStick!


In high school I wanted to be a police officer in my hometown.

Is anyone still here?
I am - but barely. I'm still home taking care of my sick husband. He is out of the hospital now thankfully, but still sick. So while I am on hiatus from Alayna's Closet I am sharpening up my sewing skills and prepping for my new Christmas designs.
Here is a sneak peek at what is coming up.


And as I mentioned - I am broadening my horizon and trying my hand at clothing. Today I finished a couple of flouncy skirts. I ordered a pattern for a couple different designs but I was antsy to get started.

So I did both of these freehand. I have a couple of kinks to work out before I start offering these in Alayna's Closet. But in the meantime - my little girl sure looks cute in something I actually made!

Party time...

My little girl is 2 now.

Alayna has been my inspiration for so many things - including Alayna's Closet - that I thought I would share some photos of her Halloween themed birthday party. We kept it small and just invited a few of her little friends to celebrate. The kids all had fun at the cookie decorating station. Alayna mostly spilled the sprinkles everywhere.


I found many great themed snacks here and here.


We had another delicious cake from our favorite bakery. Alayna was a pro blowing out her candles.


Thanks for looking! I hope to be up and running with my blog and shop by next week. See you then!
