4th of July BEAUTY!!

I know I've said this in one of my blogs before,
but I'll say it again...
and probably will continue to do so numerous times to come,
but my photographer, Alexi, is the absolute BEST!!!!

She always provides me with the most perfect photos of my clothing,
and especially the cutest little models!!!

How gorgeous is this little girl modeling my AMERICAN SWEETHEART Glam Tank top & Patchwork Twirl Skirt set??? (yes, the hair accessories were also made by your's truly)

If you live in the Chicago area and are interested in her photographing for you, I will be more than glad to give you her information :)

I can't get this dumb smile off of my face, these photos make me so happy!

There's nothing like having your clothing modeled by a beautiful child <3

I'm *SO* happy with the way this outfit came out...and I think I'm even happier with the photos!! LOL

Oh yea! And you can check out my BOY'S 4th of July tees here.

But Mommy....don't I look pretty? :)

Babygirl was not too happy when I took her makeup away (yes, she has her own makeup...I got tired of her ruining mine :P)...I had to stop her before she got too carried away LOL!

"Look mommy, pretty!!"

"I can't believe you just took my makeup away...."

"Wait, you're really not gonna give it back? =/"

I love having a daughter ;)

Finally :)

Wow guys!

I totally apologize for keeping you all waiting!

Things have been SO CRAZY in my little world these past couple of weeks...

My amazing myspace customers have always done a great job keeping me an extremely busy work-at-home mommy. By day I'm a slave to my little princess and by night I'm a slave to the sewing machine.

But recently, my etsy shop ( has been getting some great business, and I've really been racking up some orders this week! So orders from both sites have just been piling...and I plan on getting an actual website in the next 1-2 weeks.


Be careful what you wish for, right?

Actually, I'm completely stoked about this...I just need to get some much-needed organization seems like I spend more time looking for the scissors or a certain color thread than getting any sewing done!

My workroom is such a disaster zone, it makes me miserable to even think about working in it. This has been killing my mojo...I need to set aside a night from sewing orders and just cleeeeeaannnnnnnnnn my little tail off. SO much easier said than done!

My personal life lately has been INSANE - lot's of *new* chaotic, stressful, and beautiful changes. I've barely had any time at all to be on the internet unless it's to look up a customer's shipping address.

So again, I apologize for all of you awaiting bowband giveaway participants....

About JM Glamour Bowbands

I've always been a huge fan of ribbon bows on my little girl, usually trading my fabric headbands for bows with other great kid's boutiques. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE my fabric headbands! I think they are versatile, mod, and oh-so-chic! But there is just something so girly and adorably fru-fru about bows - especially big ones! And with my daughter's beautiful head of dark curly hair, it's a match made in heaven :)

My boutique buddy Ashley of Sophia's Bowtique messaged me on myspace one day, with the cutest idea ever! She suggested that I make fabric bows, and attach them to my headbands. Immediately I was SUPER EXCITED! This was something I KNEW I could do. It was right up my alley!

So I headed to my workroom to make my very first bowband.
The princess was already in bed so the timing was perfect ;) After accomplishing my very first bowband I was already addicted and had to make more...and more...and more..until I had made approximately 20 bowbands!! This was an all-nighter guys, but well worth it :)

The next day I shipped these babies out to my amazing photographer Alexi (you can follow her blog here.) and she just LOVED them!! She photographed the bowbands on two gorgeous babygirls and the pictures just came out perfect, as always! She said the children's mommy's were thrilled to keep some of the bowbands. Alexi held on to a few because she is expecting, and after having twin boys - let's hope this one's a girl! :D

Alright..enough talking!....rules are simple!

Daddy's little girl is growing up......

Daddy thinks his little girl laughs at him because he's being funny....

...I think she laughs at him because she knows she knows how ridiculous he looks. In her smart little mind she's thinking, "My dad is such a dork!"

But she laughs at him nonetheless, and she just adores her daddy!

I wonder how he feels now that his baby is growing up.

She wore her first pair of big girl panties yesterday at 17-months. Dora of course! She was so excited about them she took them out of the package, admiring them, while I finished the rest of my shopping :)

How stinkin' cute is that!?!
