back in the saddle

Monday I started designing the next Dear Lizzy craft line with the talented designers at American Crafts. We had our first meeting. Calling it a meeting is funny because it sounds so stuffy and boring when actually our meetings are quite fun and creative.

Two hours was long enough for Lola to be elated when momma got home.
Adore this look. Classic Lola.

Chewing on her fingers is a dead giveaway for the reason of her fussiness lately---teething. Poor thing. One thing about Lola is that no matter what she still tries to be a happy girl. You wouldn't even have known she was sick a few weeks ago because she didn't show it in her temperament. She just kept smiling through it all.

PS Check out the Something Splendid classes like the Boy/Girl Envelope book or I still have some fabric dolls available.

The first photo with Lola is so precious! What a moment! My little girl is only two months older than Lola and she is also always trying to be happy no matter what... :-) Happy Easter to your wonderful family! :-)

She is just as sweet as can be!
You have 3 girls and i have 3 boys...I always wanted a girl, and never got one, did you ever want a boy? Its funny how things work out though cause I have no idea what to do with baby girls!

Cant wait to see the new line! I adore all your stuff =]

OMG! Lola is adorable!

Can't wait to see your next line! I think I just hurt my neck & eyes trying to manipulate my computer screen to see what was on the table @ your meeting. Ha! Can't wait for your sneak peaks at it! Hoping for a Fall Line...your color choices, fall, family, thanksgiving, leaf jumping, pumpkin farm fun, etc. I would LOVE it! That would shine through perfectly for you...your family is so sweet & adorable! Sorry, rambling. No matter what the next line (please, let it be LineS) is...I know it'll be beautiful!

Happy Easter to You & Your Family!

so Lizzy, I've been married for quite a while (5yrs), still young to have kids ... and every time I see pics of yer beautiful kiddos, and how much you gush about them .. i keep on wondering if all the work that goes into raising them is worth it (i mean NO harm by it ...) i used to babysit a lot and i KNOW kids are a lot of work, how do you manage with 3? how did my mom manage with 4 ?!? I dunno if i cud do it ... you must really be a supermom! :)

Chelsea said...

so, with your new Something Splendid baby, will you not be running/hosting Spark No. 3 this year? I didn't see your name or Rhonna's name in the current line up.

This would make me very sad!
