I opened my own Etsy Shop

I took the plunge.

I opened my own Etsy shop last night!

I've been obsessed with all things hair bow related since I started making them for Little Miss Avery.  And I know a couple of little babies (one yet to be born) that I'm already contemplating what to make for them!

A couple of people I know mentioned I should sell them.

I know there are TONS of talented ladies already on Etsy selling hair bows--but honestly, I'm not doing it to turn some crazy profit or anything--and it's more of a fun hobby on the side.  If I can make a couple of bucks here and there to support my expanding ribbon habit? Score!

Right now I only have one bow listed (my Stars and Stripes Korker Bow) but that will change soon. I have to take more pictures this weekend and I'll be able to post a couple of more to start out with.  Hopeully my little model (and the weather!) will cooperate so we can take some shots outside. 
Awww! Ha ha, her face kills me in this picture! It was her "Mama, puh-LEEZ pick me up NOW!" face.

And if anyone ends up wanting one with specific colors/polka dots/whatever, I will totally work with them!

I also don't have a banner/logo yet becuz I'm a bit computer technically-challenged. But I'll get there eventually!  I need to maybe google it, cuz I'm stumped!

All you crazy-talented Etsy ladies out there, do you have any ideas for me? Suggestions? Thoughts?  Advice?

(*I've been trying to post pics on this post for DAYS now and it won't work! Fingers crossed that I have more success today...)

Easter was a blast with the kids this year.  Last year, Avery was just a blob of newborn baby and Hunter was still little enough to not quite "get it".

This year, however? I had such a great time watching these two interact and hearing Hunter talk about the Easter Bunny. And his enthusiasm rubbed off on his sister!

Here is our Easter in photos:

We dye our eggs the night before Easter. 
Someone wasn't too keen on his bunny ears. I think he wore them just to humor me.
My SILLY bunny girl!



Coloring Easter Eggs with Daddy's help!






Their faces, when they saw what the Easter Bunny had left, was priceless!




"Really, Daddy? This is all for ME?"



Time to find the Easter eggs!

I had put about 3-4 M-n-M's in each egg and AVERY ABSOLUTELY LOVED the sound when she shook them.
Shake, shake, shake!! 

Daddy got a homemade card and some goodies! 

NO MATTER WHAT I DID, I COULD NOT get a pic of the two kids both (1) smiling and (2) looking at the camera simultaneously. There are about 20 like this. No lie.



I tried so hard! LOL


Someone was getting VERY tired by this point.

 My handsome boy! He almost NEVER Smiles on command for me anymore, so this picture to me? Priceless!

Happy (Belated) Easter from my family to yours!
