Another busy weekend

All went well this weekend. I got all the items done I set out to accomplish. One was the Irish tutu was mailed out. My Pink tutu sold and was mailed out, and I also finished the custom alchemy order of a tutu dress with headband, wand and matching doll tutu. Thankfully my husband was very appeasing by giving me a hand with the house upkeep and the kids. I told him I will be expecting it more often, especially if my wish comes true of my work being a hit!
The purple tutu dress I was able to add a lining to the inside of it which came out better than expected and now know it will be more comfortable for little ones to wear. This is something I haven't seen being done in other tutu shops so I am happy to be offerring it :)

Between all the work I did this weekend I managed to make it to my daughter's first 2 soccer games and keep my son out of the net during game time. We couldn't figure out why he kept running on the field during the game and finally it ended so we let him run off and he went straight to sit inside the goal net! For every kid his own huh :)

We made a family dinner too, my husband's idea and had both sets of parents over, which turned out good.

I am looking forward to next weekend because I made a date with my husband and kids to go pumpkin picking and the whole nine yards of fall activities, this is completely my favorite time of year!

Hunting for Burberry style ribbon

I woke up this morning with a super stuffy nose, headache, watery eyes, all the natural things to go along with your typical head cold. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for when at the fabric store yesterday so today I am trying to find some good places to shop for supplies and whatnot. I list some once I find some. One is They have good tulle there that I found for a great price with a good assortment of colors. They have some good ribbon to pick from too, lots of your standards in all sizes at a good price too. Recently I've been into the polka dots and really want to do another Minnie Mouse inspired Tutu dress. I found some regular cotton fabric designs that I'd love to try.
I also saw this Burberry style ribbon that gave me another inspiration for a tutu dress I just can't remember which online source I saw it and am trying to find it again desperately since I didnt find it yesterday at the fabric store!
So I do a google search on burberry plaid ribbon and nothing comes up for just a roll of ribbon. Only purses, belts, watches, and dog collars pop up. So I will be back tracking my previous online viewing sites to find it again, which seems so ridiculous I didnt save it in the first place.
I finished the Irish tutu last night and came out very cute and I am dying to see my daughter try it on to fix anything final flaws it has. What i really need is a mini dress mannequin, for a daily basis, which may be my next investment if I can find a good price on one.
