a little fox dress

Hello! I'm doing a small run of these baby fox dresses and they are up for preorder of my website now! They might be my favorite baby item i've put in my shop to date, I think i actually squealed when i finished it. This is a very limited edition print so they wont be around for long but i have about 10 left! Size 3 months to 3T!

You can buy them here!little fox dress

just for fun

Back in September I did a just for fun photo shoot with my friend Mal and I'm just now getting around to editing and posting these.. I'm kicking myself for that because I like them a whole lot. Better late than never though right??
I'm so glad she agreed to it.. She was exactly what I had pictured in mind for them. I love love (love!) doing creative shoots like this just for the heck of it... it's so refreshing! I'm challenging myself to do more like this... i say once a week!
You can see the rest of them on my photography blog, here!

And since many of you have previously asked, the ceramic fox figurine was from target. I got it for my birthday in November and it has since sold out but i'd check your target just in case, i LOVE it.

And here's the current state of our bedroom.. i'm pretty happy with it for now (but the trim is killing me...)

I moved my editing office into our bedroom because I knew I would be spending a whole lot of time doing that and I wanted to keep it separate from my sewing space since that area can already become easily cluttered and busy. This space in our bedroom has made me SUPER productive.. I love it. Though a plant in the pot and some billy balls in the vase would be a good idea.. its very white right now ;)
