Sharing some Customer Cuties!

One of the most rewarding parts of this job are the emails I get from my customers when they open their package and see their new gock's frocks for the first time....I love it when I am lucky enough to get a photo with the email too!

I wanted to share my latest batch of darling customer photos - showing off their fabulous new frocks!

If you have photos you'd like to me at

Just Hanging Out~

rumor is I have the nicest laundry in the neighborhood!

these skirts were done for the etsyfast april monthly challenge but will not make their etsy appearance until after Vida's Market in NYC at the end of May. If you see one you totally love - send me a convo at etsy and I will see what I can do!

these beauties are for an upcoming Team TrendyTextiles launch in May on etsy and feature the fabulous fabrics of Jennifer Paganelli & her new Bell bottoms Collection!

The Before..... over school break we were busy turning my sewing room/guest room into a bedroom for Miss Eily! Of course all the kids had to help - imagine painting a rather small bedroom with 3 children! Eeek! It was actually very fun & they worked very hard...I am posting the BEFORE pics tonight as I have not taken any after pics yet!

Leo painted with a splint on his finger!

Eily asked if we could paint the ceiling white or if it had to stay HONEY MUSTARD color!
dad put in a nice new window the week before!
end of day 1... ran out of primer...back to home depot in the morning!
well...I also had a bit of fun with some new listings for the boys! Leo had been asking for some of his own gock's frocks so I indulged him and am offering them on etsy as well!

phew...sorry it has taken me so long to get back to my blog. Cute boys in skirts is a hard act to follow! I think I had a record number of comments for that post LOL...I also had a record number of tags - 6 to be exact!

I need to accomplish quite a bit with this post so please excuse the length!

First...this post marks my 100th post so I would like to celebrate with a contest! I will choose a lucky winner from people who post a comment on this post- I will randomly select a name on Sunday night and post the winner here on Monday....what is up for grabs? A surprise from me! Don't hesitate to comment if you have no children - I make fun things for grown-ups too!! So..leave a comment by SUNDAY night and you'll have chance to win a little surprise!

Second - tag you're it x6! egads does that mean 42 things about me??? I fear you know too much already reading my blog LOL so I will stick to 7....

1. when I was born my middle name was Logan but at some point in the first few weeks/months of life my parents changed it ot Mary - they later gave Logan to my youngest brother.

2. I turn 40 this year! EEKKKK - run for the hills & hide!

3. I have craft ADD - who doesn't that reads my blog?!?!?

4. I would love to travel to Asia, especially Vietnam

5. we don't have cable TV or a microwave! It'sour version of living off the grid!

6. the hammock in our front yard is my little slice of heaven on earth - when the kids get off the bus we love to snuggle together and talk about their day.

7. I make a mean chocolate chip cookie and I love to bake for our school bus driver

*****I too am going to pass on tagging 7 new folks as I could never catch the other kids when we played tag on the playground! ***********

Third...I have a number of new listings on both ebay & etsy!
