 This is how she poses these days!

This past Wednesday was Aubrey's first day of Transitional Kindergarten. For those of you who haven't heard of this, it's a newly created class for all the kids born in Sept-November that just miss the normal school year cut off. (There will be lots of birthdays all together in this class!). It's something between preschool and Kindergarten and I believe that they will evaluate her at the end of the year to see if she goes to regular Kindergarten or 1st grade (grade 1 in Canadian).

She was very excited to go and had no problems. As they lined up to go into their classroom she said "bye mom, you can go now!" and so we did! Now that it's Friday she's a bit sad that she can't go again tomorrow and she's counting down the days until she can go back!

While she has been at school (only half days for the first 8 days) I've been trying to get some projects done. I had a bunch of shoes, hair clips and headbands to get made to take to a new baby boutique today and I just got it all done in time and dropped off before I had to pick Aubrey up!

So far I have my shoes at Kool Kids Couture, EcoMonster and now at Stripes Boutique!
My best seller is still Etsy though!

Here's what I've been working on:

 I originally bought this straw dispenser to hold my ribbon spools but now I have a larger storage for that and it works perfectly to hold newborn headbands. I covered the outside with muslin and when you lift up the lid, it brings up all the extras - it's a great store display!

 Aubrey made up this story while skyping with my mom today so I wrote it down and put it into this comic strip for her to keep (click on the photo to enlarge):

Shannon! Is it almost 5 years ago we had these babies! Wow Aubrey is beautiful, and I'm so glad she is loving school. Those shoes are amazing and I'm so happy for you that they are selling so well. That headband holder is Brilliant! The story was cute :)
