I received such response from the skirt I made and posted on http://www.katespade-aholic.com that I decided to make and sell them. I am doing them made to order so length and size will be just right!
If you want to get to the shop, follow this link. Convo me on etsy if you have any questions. Live Colorfully!

Last spring Madeline and I planted a Fairy Garden beside the house in the back yard. It was beautiful just like these pictures. It lasted for a few days until a big rain. What we didn’t know when we planted it was that it was directly under a roof run off of huge proportions! This poor garden was washed away like the earth in Noah’s flood. After researching Fairy Gardens I have found a solution to our problem. I am going to plant the garden in a container! I can then move the container around in sun and shade as needed and even out of the storm if necessary. The best article on Fairy Gardens was found in Midwest Living Magazine. Summerspastfarms.com also has a complete fairy garden in a pink box that they will mail to you. We are going to try again…hopefully with success this time!

I had some of my best girlfriends over today for a CAbi trunk show. We had lots of girly fun while we tried on clothes and learned about the new spring trends.
Madeline really helped me get ready for the show by making sandwiches, decorating candy and even cleaning up. It is nice to have such a lovely daughter. I found many things in the spring line that I wanted to buy, but settled for three skirts and a sweater. Madeline got a cute skirt from her Mimi who was also at the party enjoying the CAbi clothes. This is proof that CAbi clothes span the generations!
We made cute party favors using the Cricut cutter and filled them with hersey’s kisses. These were very easy to make.
1. you start with a rectangle piece of cardstock
2. glue into a tube
3. glue one end shut and add kisses when dry
4. glue the other end shut the opposite way
5. decorate with Cricut cutouts
We couldn’t help it, we had to decorate the mini chocolate bars too! These were a hit with the ladies along with the pink and white m&m’s. Of course the CAbi clothes were the best this season. You can check them out here.

If you would like to make your own book, Blurb is the spot for you! I am excited by this new project idea. I have made photo books before, but this takes it to the next level. The cost to make your own book is very reasonable and books are purchased from the site on demand. I have been thinking of writing a coffe table book about finding your home decorating style. This would be a great way to get started! You can even make a book straight from your blog!

This is the cutest idea! I am going to be on the lookout for some cupcake paper vases. I am thinking that I could use the silicone cups that i saw at Hobby Lobby last week. It would be cute to put a red rose bud on top like a cherry! Carnations are so inexpensive and are available in so many colors. It would be a great hostess gift especially if I can find the box to bring it in.
