Miakins

Photobucket
Okay, so it's not the best picture of Mia {it's more like a picture of the headband} but doesn't she look angelic? Ha! Don't be fooled! She's a little spitfire already. It's been just the two of us in the mornings, since Aidan started one of his schools this week. Let me tell you, it couldn't come soon enough! I read on someone else's blog that she shed tears--of joy!--as her kiddos boarded the bus. I must confess, it was like that me for me! Anyway, so back to Mia being a spitfire, she ate an entire Lindt chocolate bar for breakfast on Monday. It seems one of my vices is not only leaving coffee cups littered about the house, but chocolate bars, too. In my defense, it was unopened and on a very high shelf. But, she caught a glint of the foil wrapper and... Well, I got out of the shower to find a trail of gold wrapper peelings that started in the kitchen and went all the way up the stairs and into Aidan's room. I finally found the remaining chocolate--all that was left was a quarter-sized piece that she couldn't get out of the foil.

Mia has also taken to playing with things in the dishwasher. She loves forks and spoons, so she pulls *shudder* dirty ones out of the dishwasher and leaves them in random places like my closet and in the trunk of her fisher price car. *ick, ick, ick* Just this morning, Robert asked her to throw a napkin away, and she looked at him and said in the sweetest voice, "But I don't want to." I forgot to put up the gate to my studio one morning, and I found her crunching on seed beeds like nonpareils. She jumped when I caught her, then gave me a toothy smile and said mmmm and asked for more. She also loves little handled shopping bags {and really, what girl doesn't.} So, she totes her blankie, some of her random favorite shoes, and her pink sun glasses about the house in a Starbucks bag. She is truly a riot, and I thank God every day that He gave me the little girl He did.

Here is a pic I took awhile ago of another fabric necklace I made. No crazy get-up this time! Okay, off to have at it!

Oh, I almost forgot to say: some of you have sent me the most kindest emails! Truly, they are so kind I could cry! With the start of school, the wholesale order, etc. it is taking me awhile to reply but only because I'd like to send a thoughtful reply :)

You are just beautiful...and Miss Mia what a honey! Truly a blessed family...I really love that you have found a way to use up the scraps of wonderful fabric that is left over and create such cute products! Innovative should be your middle name:)

I absolutely love that necklace! Any chance you'll have some in your shop soon;)

Beautiful...

Love the colors on that necklace!

Jake and Mia would be good friends. Somehow Jake finds my hidden GIANT bar of Dark Chocolate and mangaes to gnaw through most of it before I get to him. And, like Mia, he has taken to saying "But I just wanna...". It's driving me nut-so! :(

I am noticing a pattern in your blogs...
You shower and the kid's get into something. ;)
I guess you need to stop taking those. lol

Thanks for creating such beautiful things and sharing them with us!

Have a great day!

Lol, SCMama, thanks for the tip! If I could just NOT shower, I'd have a lot less trouble! Wonder how Robert would feel about that? *snicker*

Tory said...

I love that necklace Jess! You never cease to amaze!! Sending you a convo on Etsy right now to update you about my comments here back with Sara!! :) She's awesome!! Talk soon!

Prencie said...

Love the necklace and the smile:) I've followed your blog for the past month and a half when I first discovered your etsy shop. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your creations! :) It is hard to choose a favorite. I missed the boat on the Chloe shoe, so I hope to make it in with a pair of your Paula Prass collection:)

That necklace is my favorite....it would be SO pretty to wear for early fall, with grey boots and a cream cashmere sweater.

Cream cashmere happens to be on my mind due to my husband spilling a glass of iced tea yesterday and using my cream cashmere sweater to WIPE IT UP.

Apparently cashmere resembles a bath towel.

ARG.

Thanks, Tory and Prencie. Holy toledo, that's one sad story, Sara. There's no way you could get the stain out? Or at least salvage some vestige of it to make mittens?

Finally a picture of Jessica with a smile, horray!
You are so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica Haley said...

Lol, thanks! {pretty sure that's coming from a family member} I don't like fake-cheesy smiles and since I am behind the camera most of the time, it's very hard to get an authentic smile! :)
