Thanks for the feature!!!

what a week it has been - I have emerged only briefly from my sewing lair to check in with the outside world - online world in this case.

I had a few pleasant surprises when I received a couple of emails that let me know I had been featured on some folks blogs! Whoo Hoo! Thanks so much!

The first was actually last Friday on an awesome blog...The Long Thread.. I have added this blog to my bookmarks as it is a great read!

Then I had the privilege of working with the photographer Virginia Payne...she featured gock's frocks on her Designers Showcase on her blog!

Today a fellow etsy faster featured me on her blog Handwoven by Kristin Kelley.... thanks so much Kristin!

And Vida's Market has gotten some good press with a link on the sidebar of Cool Mom Picks under here's something cool....

WOW! I should go into hibernation more often...but since I am here I will give you a few more sneak peeks of the goodies I have gotten ready for Vida's Market

and be sure to check out my etsy store for some fun new additions!

1 week and counting..............

until Vida's Market! I managed to make another dozen skirts and 40 tutus! No pics of the tutus yet - I'll try to share some tomorrow.

Here is a sneak peek at the skirts

In addition to all of my sewing I thought it was time to give myself an updated look - I had gravitated back to the haircut I sported senior year in high school - more than 20 years ago and decided I needed something fresh & funky! So...I chopped it off and added a few fun highlights. Leo was rooting for orange & green but basic blonde
won out...I may think about a bit of pink or purple as the big 40 approaches!

Customer Photo Share!

After a wonderful weekend away with family it was such a treat to find these adorable photos and wonderful feedback from a couple of new customers.

A few satisfied customers have recently shared their gock's frocks finds in their chat groups online. The result has been amazing! Etsy has been keeping me very busy and I have had fun sending packages all around the country!

I wanted to share with all of you some of the darling pictures they have sent me - it is so rewarding to see the sweet smiles of the kids as they show off their new gock's frocks!

Thanks Taryn & Kristen! Keep sending them in ladies!

isn't it cute - both girls paired their gock's frocks with Matilda Jane tanks!

a special note about this sweet little girl - I have learned from her mom that Havalah was the recipient of a liver transplant....she is a strong picture of why we should all consider organ donation .... I hope that after seeing this post you will all take some time to think about the importance of this and check out this important website for more information.

Thanks again & keep the customer photos coming!

2 weeks and counting...............

it is hard to believe but Vida's Market is just 2 weeks away! I have been
madly sewing - filling orders on etsy and making new inventory for NYC. Here is a snaek peek of some of the goodies heading to the big apple with me.

I am taking a break from it all for the next 48 hours to join my siblings in celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary! We are off to the Finger Lakes region in New York which is famous for the wonderful wine produced there. The East Coast version of Napa & Sonoma!

So cheers to my faithful blog readers ! Enjoy your weekend & I'll see you next week!

Happy Birthday to my BIG Baby!

My oldest turned 11 yesterday...hard to fathom. The child who made me a mom can't be 11 already. Where have those years gone...the playdates, the firsts, the learning how to be a parent at his expense....It has passed too quickly and makes me want to hold him even tighter...but no 11 year old boy will let their mom do that!

Happy Birthday Klem!

A Tiger in the Making ???

...or, we considered naming her Annika.....

it was a beautiful spring day so we headed to the driving range and let Leo & Eily whack away - or whiff away...whatever the case may be !

We truly did consider naming her Annika rather than Eily but as she spent more time planning her outfit
for golf than actually swinging a club it is probably better that she ended up as Eily!
