So now that the baby powder has settled and I've taken off my bra, earrings and shoes, what do you say we talk a little bit about Tuesday.
To recap, I thought everyone who wanted to attend could post a baby photo on Tuesday. I know y'all are all running 90 to nothing, so I won't specify a certain time...just do it when you can by Tuesday. If you are planning on attending and participating, leave a comment here and I'll add you to the guest list on my sidebar. I'll be setting up a special list and hopefully it will show updates...keep your fingers and toes crossed for that! The fun part will be visiting each other and getting to see how creative everyone is with their "baby" photos. I'm hoping for Tanner baby photos, hint hint!
As a reminder, everyone who e-mails their address to me will be receiving a Junk Sistas coozie and one person will be receiving a Bella Pink Rose ring. I haven't figured out how I'll do that giveaway, but I will and it will be fun.
I've told y'all before that I am not an artist, but I am an art lover. I know talent and originality when I see it...with a heavy emphasis on originality! One such artist that I absolutely love is Karen of A*Musements fame. If you are not familiar with her work, you MUST visit her and see for yourself what gifts she possesses. Talent is not all she is full of either (don't take that the wrong way, Karen). She is a lovely, funny, generous and caring lady who by nature should be Southern (since her mother is a Southern belle, I think that qualifies her, don't y'all?). In this blogging world, I take great pride and honor in being able to call her a very dear friend! She made me promise not to gush (she's extremely modest about her work!) by threat of coming to Texas and whipping me like a souffle'.... so I'll go by her rules.... but just this one time!
Are y'all sitting down now? Well you better be 'cause now it's time for the big reveal of what two of you will be winning by playing along with me. Karen has sent me some of her wonderful little shoes for Jenn's shower and I have held back two just for y'all!
I Know!!! Aren't they darling? You may have seen them in publications, special shows and in boutiques. They are 2die4 and if I could squeeze my size 6's in them, I would wear them just about everywhere. I love these shoes more than my Yellow Boxes and y'all know how I feel about those! There are only three words for her designs...Fab U Lous! She has several things in the works so keep watching for all the 411 as it becomes available. I promise y'all up and down...you will be the first to know and it is exciting!
All the photos were stolen, I mean borrowed from Karen without her knowledge and I'll be sure to return them right after Tuesday! My photos just didn't do them justice and I wanted to make sure y'all got the full effect of how gorgeous they are. She can make a USPS cardboard box look spectacular. When I opened it last week, my mouth just watered. Tucked in with the shoes were all kinds of treats and ephemera (you can look Jodi, but no touchy touchy!). All I could do was scream "Mine, Mine, Mine"! I gotta tell you, parting with these cuties was no easy task. I wanted every pair for myself!
Aren't y'all glad I get to be famous by association so you get to share in the bounty? One of these I will be giving away by reaching into the Diaper Genie(fresh out of the box, of course!) where I will place each and every one's name who leaves a comment between now and Tuesday. The second one will be given to one of the party participants. You know what, I think that's who ought to get the ring as well! See, I told you I would figure that out! My "babies" names will go into the baby bonnet for drawing out by my freshly painted Bella pink nails! BTW, I had my first pedicure...go figure! That is a doozie of a post for a later date!
I think that is everything. I will provide the refreshments and music...y'all provide the entertainment and we are good to go!!!
