Tabbo on hold...sort of!

This is what has been keeping me busy this Fall...coaching!  But I've managed to do some organizing too!  Not quite ready to show the before and afters, but here is a peek of the pantry.  With all 4 kids in activities this year, I am trying my best to keep it all together.  This is what I came up with...remove a shelf, hang a calendar and a memo board, and give each child their own bin for papers. (I'm thinking these bins would be a lot cuter if they were mod-podged with some Sis Boom fabric!)
I also managed to squeeze out a silent auction donation for the Autism benefit.
I've been doing a LOT of organizing since school started.  It's killing me not to able to sew right now...I just need to keep my priorities in line and make sure my kids come first.  Although....I think whipping up a skirt for Taylor's birthday today should fall under the "kids come first" category, right?  Just like making a bunch of headbands for three girls was definitely a priority last week!
It was also a way to use up some scraps, so it counts in the "organizing" category too!

Tabbo in Hilton Head!!

 Just back from Spring Break in Hilton Head!  What a great trip with cousins and friends!  Here are some Tabbo sightings!  LOVE seeing my clothes on cute little girls!
This is my niece Katherine, from Rhode Island in the Emily top.
Taylor's skirt, in the middle is the reversed side of the Austin skirt she wore in my last post.
Friends from Cinci in Tabbo!  Carolina, second from left is wearing her Lina top!  Yes, it's named after her!

Tabbo in Key West!

  Tabbo skirts and sundresses spotted at the World Sailfish Championship in Key West last week!   At this age, it's not always easy to agree on what to wear, but skirts on vacation are perfect.  The girls like to wear them, and I'm happy because they look cute and don't say "Abercrombie"!

Bradlee, modeling the Tabbo Tie Dress.  I sold these at the Trunk Show.  They're great because you can swap out the tie and the sash with different colors for different looks.  Or, it makes a great cover-up without the sash.  Not to pat myself in the back, but I think this dress is so cute!  Maybe it's the model!  Here's my cute Tabbo for him!  Now we're off to Hilton Head for Spring Break!  We'll be looking for more Tabbo sightings!

Trunk Show!

Finally held my first big sale last night!  Fun, fun!  I sold a lot (but not all!) and had a blast doing it!  Lots of  little girls left with big smiles, bright colored skirts, tops, headbands, and more!  Thanks to everyone who came!  Now I'm off to Key West for the World Sailfish Tournament and some much needed rest!

Trunk Show photo shoot!

The sun finally cooperated and peeked out this week so I took a couple of quick shots of some skirts and then got Bradlee to model the new top design.  I'm hoping to get all three girls out after school to take some more, but I thought I'd go ahead and post some of these shots today.  She started out great but quickly transformed into her usual silly eight-yr. old self....

She REALLY wanted an action shot!

This girl is ALWAYS  happy!!!  Love, love, love!!  And how about that new top?!?!

Honey Child Love!

 I drove to Waynesville, OH last week to pick up Sis Boom's new fabric line, Honey Child at the Fabric Shack.(whom I really can't say enough good things about!).   It's just plain gorgeous and screams Spring!  Wait till you see the skirts and sundresses I'm doing!   Waynesville is a beautiful little town full of antique shops and has a wonderful restaurant/store called Cobblestone Village.  HIGHLY recommend you eat there if you ever get to Southern Ohio...amazing food and wonderful service!

I'm working hard on inventory for my first sale and I'm trying to add a couple of bigger ticket, unique items to add a little fun.  I  picked up this little vintage stool in one of the tiny shops...

 I didn't get a very good before pic, but you get the idea.
Then I took it apart and gave it a little Tabbo touch with some help from my new Honey Child...

 Originally, I was going to paint it white, but I like the black better.
 TA DA!!  It's really small, and it SPINS!  Cuteness??!?!

This is a jacket I made a while ago with gorgeous Amy Butler home dec. fabric.  Unfortunately, the design makes me look huge so I don't wear it much.
Football-player shoulders!  My girls make much better models than me so I'll show you some pics of them in some headbands I did for my niece's birthday.  The second one did not make it in the mail...snatched by Bradlee!

I love when they wear headbands so I'm always trying to come up with new designs.  I plan to make a bunch for the trunk show.  I'm working on skirts, belts, headbands, and a few bags.  Hoping to have the sale in March.  I've been stocking up on Sis Boom fabric for the last couple of weeks and I'm anxious to put it all together!  More to come soon!  Meanwhile, here's a pic of the girls before the Father/Daughter dance.  My Texas roots loved the Western theme!  
AND we can't forget the Birthday Boy...Bo turned six this week!  Can't believe how fast he is growing!
