Really I don't know why or how this happened, but as right after breakfast yesterday morning my upper back started hurting and within an hour it was OUT!!!! REALLY!! I could NOT move!!! I started updating my blog which realized needed ALOT more time than a single Saturday afternoon, so I then decided to catch up on MUCH needed office work!!

So, I spent my day entering customer information and invoices into quick-books, took only about 12 hours of straight computer work to finish, but I feel OH, SO relieved to get it done!! Maybe because it was on my list of things to get done before school is out so we can get hang out at Granite Pointe Resort & get some sunrays in... or maybe just so I make the seasons pass worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This week has been a good one {until my back went out... but hopefully that is temporarily!}

LOVE LOVE LOVE the photo shoot Divian Conner

I LOVE how Divian stages her photography!! In fact she is FABULOUS!!!! I recommend grabbing a cup of coffee before clicking on this link to see more of her work... HERE!!

Okay, so what else did I do while I was laid up on the couch with serious back pain besides order my kids around??

Well, I couldn't help but put in my order for LOTS of bolts of this here!!!!!! So excited... you all know how Anna Maria Horner is my favorite designer.... HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will see this in my summer & fall lines!!! I will give you some sneak peeks this weekend :)

A Good Day!

It was a good day. Fancy & I took off just before lunch for a mom & me date. I believe it was much needed for both Fancy and I. Everything about it was perfect... she even had to tell me it was time to leave McD's playland. I was just devouring that big smile she was giving me knowing that she had ALL my attention... JUST HER!!
It truly is one of my favorite things to do... mom & me dates. I let her plan the day... which started off at the hair salon so she could get her hair cut, styled and feel like a princess... she is just that! I feel so much more relaxed now and rejuvenated and loved by that little weasel of mine! The most important things on her list were to go shopping for fancy stuff, and a trip into Baskin 31 for bubble gum ice cream. So we did just that! The game of the day was don't step on a crack or you'll break your Mamas back... Oh boy!! My poor mom! Fancy takes the cake on that game.
I LOVE HER!!! And her entire personality, which isn't always pleasant.... but, she has a heart of gold!

Have I Told YOU...

This was the week that I launched "Once Upon a time..." Spring 2011? or,
This was also the week that has been an AWESOME week for 1crown3tiaras?!! or... that my "n" button doesn't work on my computer, thanks to my youngest little cherub for spilling water on my keyboard!! {my husband promises to get me a new keyboard tomorrow}... but in until then I have to copy and paste every "n " letter I write!! That may explain my lack of blogging!!
With that being said...

ROOMFORNINE Is hosting my second {out of three} $50 gift-certificate!!

Once upon a time...

ok... so really~ I was hoping that 2011 would bring a whole new year of blogging for me. WHAT??!! Now I see that aitn't happening!! But, I will give myself credit for the blogging I have done!! I am NOT a writer, but a sewer. My creative juices flow when I am in my studio. NOT when I am on my computer... unfortunately. Sometimes I think how easy it would be to be a writer... until I sit down and write! Ugh... my husband is a writer. He is also WAY more book smart than me! I will try blog MORE. But, I can't promise. I will promise to design & sew for you:)

Are you ready for Spring 2011!!! Well, it's about to debut... Once upon a time....

I LOVE all my photographers!! Thank you!!! It makes my day to receive emails from all of you with your daughters ROCKIN' 1crown3tiaras!!! Seriously!

Where did that week go???

Wowza!! Why am I SO tired?? Oh boy... what a week:) Lots of new items coming into shop starting this week!!!! Went to 3 fabric stores today trying to find the perfect fabric for a portrait dress today.... still nothing. I think I might be up all night scouring the internet. I have had this gorgeous lace fabric that I have had in my studio for quite a long time and LOTS of it... I finally have it all sketched out! So basic and it's going to be another favorite of mine. I just know it!!

The start of a New Year...

For me it is somewhat of a strange feeling to have the holidays over and the kids back in school. It's almost bittersweet. The month of December is busy.busy.busy. and then it's all over and a new year is here. I will admit I LOVE new years resolutions... although, I don't know if I call them resolutions. Goals... I always have a list of goals and the New Year gives me a chance to sit down and go over my goals cross some off and add some new.

I have a VERY dear friend of mine who last month graduated and is now a social worker. I love hearing how much passion she has for her new life and the goals and dreams she expresses. I get so much inspiration just listening to her over the phone. I wish I could have made it to her graduation party yesterday 1500 miles away. I was there in spirit and my dear mother did text me a picture! Thanks mom!

I just can't help myself and give you a little sneak peak at the Spring 2011 line...
I hope all of you have as much excitement for 2011 as I do!!

the new year and anticipate all the challenges and joy it will bring

all the mistakes I have made that made me realize

my wonderful husband who helps me stay on track

this beautiful -6 degree sunny day

to read blogs and become inspired

my parents for coming to stay for Christmas

growing older and finding myself

being able to dream of seeing more

knowing that the end of this 3 year journey will
finally come to an end

watching my kids enjoying life

the comfort I find in my family
