Having Fun With American Girl Doll Clothes

So as of lately I've been having a lot of fun making and selling AG doll clothes on Etsy. Here are a couple of things a made last week. I also got a new sewing machine which makes sewing SO much easier and it's now a relaxing hobby for me. 
I've been learning a lot of sewing techniques from making doll clothes and I think I'm ready to make something for myself or my baby. When I do I'll make sure to share!

The Importance of Packaging

When selling handmade items it's important to stand out from the crowd. But we already knew that. 
With that being said, packaging is a great way to make your shop and products become a little bit more different than the rest. 
There's nothing like getting a package in the mail from an etsy shop and having a pretty package inside the envelope! So here is the packaging I use for my etsy shop. I really love this style with the kraft pillow box and doilies. 
The tag was made by a fellow etsy shop and I love them. They also came with ribbon, which I use to make the bow as well as keeping jewelry together inside the package.

What do you think of it? How important do you think packaging is to a handmade business?

I whip my hair back and forth

Today's post is about Gabi's new hair adventures. Yesterday she let me do something with her hair. Since her hair has been growing slowly I had never really done anything to it, but it has grown a great amount so I decided to make some little twists and add barrettes at the ends.
She LOVED it. All she wanted to do was shake her head and have fin with her new hair. She was so happy.
It's amazing how little and simple things can make a child so happy and full of joy. I wish adulthood was the same lol.

Live, Love, Travel

How to Pin on Pinterest CORRECTLY

Ok so the new crave now is Pinterest, and even though it's such a popular way to share photos and articles {or whatever else}, I keep running into pins which have no HOME!!! This means that if I click on a given photo it won't take me to the original website that photo came from.

Let's give credit where it's due please.

I was guilty of this when I first started pinning. Until I tried to go back to what I pinned and COULDN'T! So here is a trick that I learned to make sure I can pin the right way.

Step 1: After pinning, go back to the pinned photo and place your mouse over it to that you can see the edit button.

Step 2: Once at the edit page grab the page's url where the photo came from and add it here.
            NOTE: sometimes there might already be a url there and this url might be the picture itself and NO
            the website. This will most likely apply if you pinned it yourself from another website.

If you have an easier way of doing this please do share ^_^

A day at the Lake {Favorite of the week}

I don't have much to say about these {and I don't think I need to}We went to the lake this week and Daddy and Gabi were the center of attention on my camera. I took more photos but these two were my favorites!

Gabi and I

Today I wanted to share some pictures I took this week. This post if featuring baby and mommy ^_^. 
She was in a really good mood and instead of trying to grab the camera she was actually smiling and taking the pictures WITH me instead of fighting against it lol. 

I have yet to meet a baby who love to wear shades as much as Gabi does. She puts them on, then asks me to out on her shoes for her {or she will attempt to do it herself} and goes stand by the door so we can go outside ^_^, she is a very silly child!

I have also started to use Adobe's Lightroom 4 and I LOVE IT. It's so simple to use and to edit my photos.
