The race is not over yet...

I have been diligently working on an order for 3 flowergirl dresses that proved to be way more difficult than they appeared in the picture given me. After 60 (yes, 60++ hours) I finally finished. The dresses took over my life for 4 weeks (except for a week in between for vacation) and as a result I stopped going to the gym, taking the kids out, making nice dinners, shopping, talking to anyone on the phone. Yes, they ruled my life. I am REALLY bad a managing more than one project at a time. I won't allow myself to do anything else until a particular project or order is finished. So.... THANK GOD, they are done!

HOWEVER, life is not back to normal because I had to get right back to work and make my own daughter a flowergirl dress for my little sisters wedding. I started that Saturday, pulled two all nighters and it is done. THe rest of the night includes making hair accessories and jewelry for all six bridesmaids, then, up at 4am to leave by 5am with two sleeping children to catch a flight at 9am at JFK in NYC. And finally, we will be off to L.A. for a week (just Me and Aubrielle). So, when does life go back to normal?? Surely not when I get back because that is back to school week and I am selling at a market that Saturday. So, I'll be busy stocking up my inventory for Back to School clothes all week. Maybe once October gets here I can relax?!

Hullabaloo's One Year Anniversary!! Enter for a $60 Giveaway!

I am so proud to announce October 11th is Hullabaloo's official anniversary! It has been a tremendous year for me with lots and lots of hard work, sacrifice and help from friends and family. I have met many of the goals I have set in place for my self last year and even exceeded some. I have learned many new techniques for sewing, learned how to finally follow a pattern, met some fantastic women through joining etsy teams like Fabulous Artisitc Moms. etsykids and trendy textiles. I entered a Handmade Children's Design contest and was picked from an expert panel of judge's from Parent's Magazine for the top 40 finalists! From there I made it to 5th place from votes from the etsy community!! You should have seen me during the contest! I was absolutely beaming! Even though I did not win, I was still completely flattered to even been picked from Parent's Magazine!! What an accomplishment :) I learned how to create a treasury ( and even started a series which has a small following, lol. In December, I will have an ad on the SECOND page of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion! Hmmm, I know there is more but I will get on with it and tell you about my fantastic GIVEAWAY!!!
