the store is FULL of inspiration and goodies.  there are lots of handmade delights as well as all the goods to make your own creations…including the most popular designer fabrics out there!

so whether you are a seasoned seamstress, an aspiring one, or someone who can just appreciate the value of handmade, you are sure to leave completely inspired:)

this morning on the way to eli’s first day of kindergarten, he looked at me and said “mom, you are one of the most important things in my life.”  my sweet boy must have sensed that i needed some reassurance as i watched him take his first step of independance…

…and he is more than ready.  can’t you see the excitement in his perfect little face?  i did pretty well. too:)  no tears from me..i think i’ve cried enough over the summer just anticipating this day.  i was emotionally prepared.  there is something to say for having a child that is so terribly excited to learn.  eli’s going to give his sweet teacher a run for her money…in the best way possible.

to the fabric store in town to do some photography work, and i found eli on our bed reading with his leap pad.  i just finished up sewing our bedding, and suddenly it’s everyone’s favorite place to be.  i guess that’s what you call a success:)

and how could i deny such sweetness?  please note his little toes….

we went to an ice cream social this afternoon to meet eli’s kindergarten teacher.  he is so excited he can barely contain himself.  i know he’s going to LOVE school!!  if i can just make it through the first day, i think i’ll be okay…
