Yesterday my sweet baby had his first day of Preschool. Yes he is three and I still call him my baby!
I didn't cry, and he didn't cry which was shocking to my husband. He made the transition so easy. He already knew his teacher, as his brother had the same teacher last year. I did feel a little odd not having my little shadow following me everywhere, but just a soon as I dropped him off, seemed like minutes later it was time to pick him up.
And now all three of my kiddos are going to school. Our oldest is all day, my Kindergartner is only half day and my little guy is twice a week. I must say this is as much of a transition for me as it is for my kids. I will survive! I might get a little lonely, but give me some time and I'm sure I'm going to enjoy having my mommy alone time, at least twice a week that is.

Any ideas of what this photo is? I have been SUPER busy getting ready to open my Etsy shop! The past few day's I've been planning, shopping, and sewing. I'm really excited about this little business adventure! My daughter is my inspiration.
Up until this month my daughter had extremely long hair. I mean down to the middle of her bottom. With that much hair, I had to be creative on how I fixed it, but it also had to look cute! I started making her hair bows to match her outfits. Seemed like every time she wore one of my hair bows, someone would make a comment on how beautiful it was. On August 9th we cut 16 inches of her hair off and donated it to Locks of Love! I am so proud of my daughter for inspiring her momma, and for helping children who are sick feel better about themselves. Though her hair isn't super long anymore, I still enjoy creating beautiful hair bows for her to wear.
I will be selling my handmade hair bows and headbands along with other handmade items such as felt and fabric flower embellishments for paper crafting, and possibly some scrapbooking kits. You can find my creations at my Etsy shop http://www.scrapsofmine.etsy.com

It's a bitter sweet day, two of my three kiddo's are back to school. I can't believe my oldest is in second grade and I now have a kindergartner! Next week my sweet little guy goes to preschool for the first time. I"m sure I'll be shedding a few tears!
I love capturing every day life as well as special occasions by taking photos. I never leave my house without my camera. So, today was no different. My camera was out first thing this morning capturing my kiddo's first day of school.
I'm in the process of putting together School Albums for each of my kids. I will continue to work on these album until they finish school. Check out Laura Vegas's blog post of Feb. 28, 2009. This is where the inspiration came from.
