Time flies when you have kids!

For me time flies when you have kids and of course when you're having fun also.  I think everyone who has kids can agree with me on this "saying" right?

So, I'm so excited about planning our youngest 3rd birthday party come late Jan.  Since her birthday is smack in the middle of winter season and so much for that outdoor party idea.  So, I have so many ideas but I think I have narrowed it down to what she LOVES.  This gives me 2-1/2 months to plan a perfect party for her.

She loves lemonade and we all know lemonade is for summer time right?  Well in my case it's going to be a Winter Wonderland Lemonade Stand (indoor of course).  I'll upload some of my designs when I get started on them.  Of course, I might change my mind by end of this month and do something else. 

Stay tune.................

So sorry for being MIA......................

Boy life seems to get a bit crazy when your children starts school and holidays rolling around.  So I noticed I haven't been on my blog to update what I have been up to lately.  First off, I totally lost my voice for a week, no clue how because I felt fine.  I think my allergies this year was in full force and I was pretty miserable with stuffy & running nose, very itchy eyes (to the point of wanting them out) and huge sinus pressure.   So of course I double up on allergy medicine and that did not work, only put me to sleep.

I finally figure out why my allergies were so bad, we live near a huge cotton field!!!  Which I was amazed because I have never saw a real cotton field.  I been bugging my hubby about picking one so I can feel it.  So he asked the person who owns that field and he let him pick some for me. For those, who have NEVER seen or felt what real cotton feel like, it feels EXACTLY like a cotton ball you buy in the store.  But of course, since this was natural it had many many many seeds in them.  So now, I have cotton seeds to plant my own cotton field (well a small one at least).  Not sure what to do with them afterward, but I'm sure the internet will have plenty of instruction on how to handle them after harvesting it.
I will upload some images later this week if I remember to take some photos.

Today is a great day, I finally found instruction on how to upload my Etsy shop onto my blogger.   Love the team and it's forum that I'm in, they are very helpful!
So check out my items there and at my site at

Where were you on 9/11/2001?

I'm dedicating this posting to the memories of those who lost love ones 10 yrs ago.   The thought of it still brings tears to my eyes.  I remember this day vividly even though I wasn't in NYC, but it's hard to forget what you heard and saw on TV.
Where or what was I doing on this day?  It was 7am Cali time, I was driving to work at GUESS?  corporate office (was as Assistant Buyer for them back in 99).  LOVE that job!  Anyways, I'm on the 110 heading to downtown LA when on the radio was the news about what happen to the first twin towers.  So first thing, everyone thought of was a freak accident, then comes the news about the 2nd plane, gasppppppp, so then you freak.  I arrived to the office and we were told we could go home to be with family and then that was when we saw on TV about the pentagon and Flight 93.   I was suppose to be flying on that day back to Ohio but had cxl my flight a week before.  So, at that time my mind was baffle what if?  I had a 3 yr old at that time and the thought of leaving him motherless scared me to death.  Though he would be in great hands with my family, the thought still scares anyone who leaves their little ones behind to early.  Now my son is 15 and he sort of remembers that day because he was in a daycare and they watched the news until all parents were able to pick up their children.
I am impress with the courage & strength of those that lost their love ones that day.  It takes a lot of will power and support to be able to move forward.  The thought of losing my husband, kids, family members or close friends is a scary thought.  We take things for granted until you don't have them anymore and then it's too late to reflect what if.
So I hope who ever reads my blog, reflect on their lives and appreciate others and most of all what you have. 
Be kind to each other as we are all human beings trying to live our day to day life.

It's Saturday afternoon and I feel like it's Sunday evening already

Finally we see some sunshine this week.  I am one of those people who NEEDS the sun to make my day otherwise if it's raining or gray out for days I'm bummed and can't get anything done.  So when we lived in Redondo Beach for many years then we moved to San Diego for 2 yrs (LOVE, LOVE) and isn't the same since we left the beach and perfect weather.

So here are some more new designs and looks like Safari prints are making it's way back.  I had fun making these party packages.

Where has the time gone? Summer is over for my family!

2 out of 3 of our kids are in school already, can you believe that?  I remember when school started in Sept and still end in early June.
So our oldest child is in ROTC and our middle started kindergarten but I'm still left with our 2 yr old.  Nice to just be us two but also I have to constantly be her play date because big sis was there to always play with her (bummer for me and now I work even much later).  But I enjoy every moment with her and learning how amazing she is.  Very strong willed little girl she is and very independent.
I LOVE to cook as much as planning and creating amazing parties but time always seems to creep up on me so quickly that I usually have to cook quick simple meals.  At least our kids aren't quite picky.  We lucked out with our last child (the 2 yr old) she eats just about everything, she loves veggies (even salads).  Our other two eats veggie too but ONLY certain veggies, so our popular buy are carrots, broccoli, green beans & soybean.

I'm not a picky eater as I LOVE food and it's starting to show.  I need & like to lose a few pounds if I can only stay focus and discipline myself to get on a diet.  Maybe it'll be my New Years' resolution to lose about 30 pounds.  Be nice to get back down to 100lbs as I was prior to my two girls.  After having my son years ago, losing weight was easy but boy after 2 girls it's a struggle.

I like blogging, it's basically me talking to myself on a computer and in hopes for someone to read me.   OK, time for bed, night, night!

Late Saturday Night

I was never a night owl, until I married my husband many years ago.  I used to love getting up at 6-7am and start my day but now it's more like 10-11am because I'm up late until 3am before I finally head to bed.

Now that 2 out of 3 are back in school, I can start getting up at 6am and start my day with some boba drink (LOVE! LOVE!) especially the black pearls in the coffee drink (taste like gummy bears but round and not as sweet but chewy like gummy bears).

I have some more wonderful designs to share with everyone that are having a party coming up soon or in the near future.   Party favor tags, I had fun designing and making these.

It's Sunday and I feel lazy.............................

I think I'm entitled to at least one lazy day out of the week, right?  My gosh if only I knew how to relax, my husband thinks that I am constantly working non stop.  But I keep reminding him, when you start and own your own business you work 24/7 and you stop in between breaks to make dinner, spend some time with kids and potty breaks.  I love ice tea but that drink makes me go every hour or it could be I'm getting old.

Ok, off the subject of my personal life and back to the grind, here are some NEW designs I came up with.  Hope you all like it!   Ballerina is another favorite of mine, reminds me of how sweet a child can be until they turn 5 and think they are 10.

It's Friday, yepee! But for me it's just another day because I work 7 days out of the week.

So I don't quite get to enjoy the "it's Friday" notion because owning your own shop means working 24/7 until you can afford to hire help.   But I love it and my 5 yr old as me why I work so much?  Well, I tell her, all those toys and beautiful clothes you have is because mommy & daddy work hard to get you those things.  Funny how children thinks the things they get are FREE.  Well to them it is free but to us adults we sweat to make those earnings to get them those precious things.
We have 3 kids, our 14 yr old son locks himself in this room playing on the PS3 with friends (amazing the technology we have now for them), my 5 yr old (bless her little heart) tries to help me with my business and instead using up all my supplies (not very profitable) and finally our youngest who is 2.5 yrs old (turning 3 in Jan) does her own thing and let's me work.

Ok, back to my designs, I created 2 girlie items this week, one for the SWEET 16 girl and one with classic Alice in Wonderland theme.

I really enjoyed creating these 2 designs and if I have more time, I would create tons in a day.  To order these DIY printable package, go to or both sites take paypal for quick payment.

Finally it's Thurs but then again if it was a wkend I still be working!

I'm going to dedicate today to just blogging about me and my family.  My wonderful son who is so lucky to be traveling with my parents & younger brother to California (LA) for a 2 wk vacation without us.  How lucky for him (he's 14 going on 15 in Aug) since school will start early Aug for him and his 5 yr sister.  She will start Kindergarten (yepee, 2 out the door & 1 left to care for).  Well I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing because our 5 yr old tends to keep the 2 yr old entertain while I try to work.
I attached some nice photos of our kids and eventually I"ll attach a photo of my hubby & I (if I can find one with me not looking like I'm in my PJ all day long, hee! hee!).
Going off the subject of my kids for a moment.  But have anyone ever feel that they can do just about anything?  That's how I am, I can cook sew, craft, garden (not quite the green finger as my husband's is), bake, create, design, write, just about all sports (love tennis), plan fabulous parties (love, love & love doing the most).   IF I CAN PARTY ALL DAY AND ALL WEEK, I WOULD).  I'm talking about a nice, classy, simple party that you can have friends over for dinner and just mingle at the comfort of your home.  But with 3 kids and them being on a schedule very hard to do. 
Well, I'm signing off so I can get back to designing more beautiful stuff for you all to purchase.

Classic Pooh, don't you just love him?

 Who doesn't like Pooh, right or at least I hope no one doesn't.  Anyways, I created this line for a baby shower but can also be for a birthday as well.  I fell in love with this while designing it and made me think about my 3 kids when they were babies (now they are 14, 5 & 2 yrs old).  To order, pls go to or!

It's Sunday and I should be resting!

 So instead of relaxing, I'm cleaning the entire house (because I have parents coming in town) and in between breaks, designing and creating.  And slipping in some play time with the kids.  If there was a trophy for being the most MULTI-TASK person ever, I win that trophy or at least fight for it.

So what I have here are some DIY Party Packages for Boys Birthday or whatever the occasion is/will be.   I have plenty more designs at my e-commerce site so go to or
