I Heart Amy Butler (and other randoms)

This past week when I went to Lawrence for Macie's field trip, I visited a local fabric store that has AMAZING selections, including Amy Butler's designs, which I am now in LOVE with!

These are the fabrics that I chose out of all her designs. I just adored these right from the get go and knew I had to make the girls dresses with them. I'll post pictures of the dresses after I make them of course! Snapped this picture with my cell phone that's why it is kind of hard to see the colors.

This weekend we were on the go ALL weekend! Friday night we went to dinner with friends and hung out afterwards. My friend Tracy is going to start selling Scentsy candles (I'm not sure if they're supposed to be called candles since you don't burn them?) so Friday night some of girls helped her decide which scents we thought would be the best sellers, and helped her familiarize herself with all the scents. Saturday morning I had the Farmers Market, it was kind of a slow day, but I still made money which was nice. Saturday afternoon we ran some errands, Macie had dance recital rehearsal, and then I had a girls night for my friend Katie's bachelorette party. Don't worry, I'll post lots of pictures from this weekend later tonight or tomorrow, I took TONS!! Yesterday we had church, lunch with friends, a super fun birthday party at a pottery place (for Macie) and then went and walked the golf course with some girlfriends while Gerrad and the boys played golf. The girls went to my in laws so they could play outside . It was a wonderful, but busy, weekend!

I've also been trying to come up with some simple little things to carry in my shop as well, that don't take a lot of time to make, but are fun and yet still useful, and fashionable of course! Here's where you come in... what are some little things that you think would be a good addition to my shop? Binkie clips, car seat covers, sippy cup holders/clips, lovies (little handheld blankets for babies)?

Sounds like y'all had a busy weekend! That stinks that that girl is stealing your ideas. I'm sure yours are way better, but it still stinks. Love the fabrics you bought can't wait to see the finished product!!!

Prov. 22:9 Happy is the generous man, the one who feeds the poor.

I have been where you are. Honestly I felt a bit of this when I use to make tutu's. I just gave it up to God. He is the one that gives you talent and we should use it to glorify Him. That is where the scripture comes in. Don't let your self worry about others, just do the best work you can.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13

Don't feel like I am preaching to you. I have been there and walked through it. I just want you to know as a friend what helped me.

You can spend a lot of time in anger, but lift it up to Him. It will make you feel so much better.

WOW- Busy weekend with you and the family!!

I know that you have been struggling with your highschool friend "copying" your stuff...It sickens me, too! I'm so sorry, Mols!

Love you girlfriend! We really need to have a phone date soon and catch up!
