Mermaid, Part Two

I made another Mermaid tote, this time with some additional accessories- an orange crab (I love this, with the silly eyes!) a starfish, a seahorse, a clam shell and a green fish, all to match Gymboree's Mermaid Magic line. This will be fun to watch, starting at 99 cents with no reserve. Check it out, and watch it with me!

Another peek at the collaboration with Bambini Dreams and Scrappindesign. Lynne Marie Pisano of Magical Moments Photography took the beautiful pictures. This will be listed for the Haute Couture Runway Launch at the end of May.

Little ladies...

The girls went to their Father-Daughter dance tonight with Mark. What a fun time it was to get ready. It seemed easy this year. I found dresses on the clearance rack at JC Penney after Easter for $20.00 each, and they included the little doll dresses to match. So we put the dolls into the pictures, of course!

I still giggle when I think of how I agonized over what shoes they would wear, until they found the pink and purple jelly shoes at Walmart for $7.50! The girls insisted on getting them after I said no...they were not appropriate for a dressy dance...but they were thrilled when I threw my arms up in defeat and let them. I think they ended up looking very nice with the dresses!

Such ladies, showing off their elbow cuts...

And their shin bruises...

And the jelly shoes! Priceless!

More Magical Sets...

Here are two more sets listed for BijouCo's Pirates and Princesses Launch. The little girls are too cute for words! Too bad they're not included. Happy Mother's Day!

Mermaid Magic

I love making these. This tote matches Gymboree's new Mermaid Magic line. I added in some Gymboree Ric Rac clips to the handle- they can be removed to wear in the hair. This is offered at .99 with no reserve!

Fairy Pretty

This was a fun mix-and-match set to go with the Tinkerbell set by Cassi of SugarBritchesBoutiqueOnline. It can be worn in so many ways. Clip the flower or the Tinkerbell clip into the weave of the headband and wear them together, or wear the flowers over pigtails. Find the set here, and while you're looking, check out some of the new BijouCo listings that have popped up this week!

BijouCo Pirates & Princesses Launch

Launch day is here! Here's my first contribution, and I'll have a couple sets of princess bows posted in the next day or so.
This is the tote I gave a sneak peak of the other day. I'm in love with it, and my girls adore it. It will be hard to part with it. The reserve is set at $79.99. This took hours and hours...enough to take up about a week of my life. It is one-of-a-kind and includes all six dolls. Take a peek, even if it's to just look at the pictures in the auction and dream of being young again...

Show me the bows, Kristen!

The most common email I get from my regular customers goes something like this...

Hey Kristen,

I know you're busy. When do you think you'll make bows for the new line? I need a pair for the new Gymbo line. Like yesterday.


Okay, so lots of you know you've sent an email to me like this. Except you don't say "like yesterday" even though I know you want to say it. :) And you don't say "love" at the end. I added that in because I feel the love. daily emails. Especially when a new line comes out. For those of you who have been ordering your M2M bows from me for the last few years (wow, did I say that?) you know that I was always on top of the new lines, getting to the store to match, and coming home to make a sample of every bow style possible to match the line. And a pretty little collage showcasing all of those designs.

I've decided to change the way I do this, though. The website is so busy that some new lines don't get touched for weeks. And you sit so patiently waiting, and sometimes they never get added to the site. Now you can order your bow(s) right away as soon as a new line comes out. Just visit the *Custom* section in each M2M area and you can order the bow and style you need- just let me know which outfit you have. Now you're not left waiting until I get around to it.

This makes it easier for you, and easier for me, too! And yes- once I make up your bows, I'll add them as a regular item for everyone else to see. For my regular customers, I hope this helps you place your order with ease, and I hope you'll enjoy receiving your new line bows sooner.

Happy May! And thank you for your continued orders!
