Actually my Mom-in-law and Sis-in-law told me about this and I had to share it with you! You can go to THIS LINK and print a coupon for $1 off their pasta. Then you can take the coupon(s) to Fo.od Li.on (if you have one close by) and they have a deal on this pasta until tomorrow(2/1) for 4/$4! So you if you take 4 coupons and get 4 boxes of pasta then you are getting them for FREE!! You just have to pay taxes! I may or may not have stocked my cabinets with over 100 boxes of pasta for less than $6!  Told you it was a deal. Now I just need to find a great coupon and sale for some spaghetti sauce haha!

Collie Ollie Children's Boutique

Let me introduce you to a new favorite Etsy Shop Collie Ollie Designs. She such an amazing crafter! She got her start on Etsy when she made a shirt for a friends son and her friend told her she needed to open an Etsy Shop! She was skeptical at first but hopeful. She started slow and now her shop and a big variety! From skirts, dresses, pants, overalls, quilts, bunting, and bags! Michelle, the owner, is a twenty something mom of two and gets her inspiration from them and her mother who has over fifty years of sewing experience! Here is a little statement from Michelle.
My mom has knowledge, patience, and the love for sewing that has been a wonderful asset to Collie Ollie’s. Without my mom Collie Ollie’s would not exist. We are definitely a team.
How sweet is that? Let me show you some of my favorites from her SHOP!

Love the little horses on this dress. Isnt it darlin!
This little jumper is perfect for Valentines!
And this is just perfect for Spring! I also love the style of this knot dress!
So Sweet!
Collie Ollie's was so nice to send Presley this sweet little jumper! I love it. Its so adorable on her. Is also so well made and is made with darlin fabric. Presley loves it too. She started bouncin and gigglin when I asked her if she wanted to wear her new dress =) I love moments like that!
(sorry she was a little under the weather when I took this shot)

So I will list a few shoes first to see how it goes. I will make a few different post and if you want to bid on them all you have to do is leave a comment on that post. I will run it from tonight (1/26) to Monday (1/31) Let me know if you have any questions regarding any of the items. Happy Bidding.

BezaleelArtisans R&G

BezaleelArtisans is such a cute shop that I had to tell you about it. If you dont already know this shop, you should! BezaleelArtisans has such cute things and great prices too. Chrissi has been married for 22 years and has 11, yes 11, children. She and her two oldest started this shop and I believe it will grow quickly! Here is a little peak into her shop.    :)
This is so cute. Would be perfect for upcoming spring weather.
I am in love with this outfit. Its so trendy!
And how cute is this picture? Love it!
I <3 this material. So girly and innocent.

BezaleelArtisans was so sweet to send this set for Presley Kate. It is sooooo cute and its so well made. She will be able to wear this for a long time. She wore it this weekend and I think every person we ran into commented on it. I love it when we get comments on her and her outfits. I waited a long time to get to dress her in cute little girlie things like this. I mean I love my boys more than anything but jeans and tshirts is all they are willing to wear. So dressing PK up in cute little outfits like this from BezaleelArtisans just makes me so happy.

Winner and a Request

The lucky winner of the Pretty Pretty Baby is Mehnaz Kapadia of http://chefnaaz.blogspot.com/ Congrats!!! Please email me at keepersphoto{at}gmail{dot}com  You have 48hrs to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

On a sad note, my Grammie is extremely sick. She had breast cancer, a mastectomy, and lung cancer and went into remisson. She, for the past year, has been vomiting blood. They know now that it is coming from a tear in her esophagus. There is nothing they can do to repair that because she wouldnt make it through surgery. She also has a blood clot in her upper arm. They cant give her a blood thinner because she is bleeding from the tear. She is refusing to have a filter put in. She was taken to the hospital on Sunday because she was having some heart problems. The doctors have came in and said there is nothing left to do. They think her cancer is back full force and possibly a clot in her lung. My grandmother has fought a long hard fight but she is so ready to go. She said she is done here. On Monday everyone was in the room with her and she said her goodbyes and asked us to take care of my Papa and for him not to cry.  All her family is now here with her. Her son had to come in from Michigan and he arrived yesterday morning. Hospice is now involved and they are in the process of getting her home today. That is where she wants to be. The doctors and hospice say she has days left, a week max. She hasnt eating or drank anything in 6 days. They just are keeping her comfortable. My grammie is the strongest woman I know. I want to be just like her. I want my daughter to be like her. I ask that you pray, if you pray, or just think about my family this week. I am extremely close with her. I have never lost anyone close before. This is going to be a hard week for me and my mom. I will leave you with this picture taken last summer. :)

Miss Morgan's Designs R&G

I have came across something that I think everyone should know about. This is an awesome way to get cute personalized shirts for your little one without paying a big price! Miss Morgan's Designs creates cute personalized vinyl decals that you can do yourself. The decals are very soft and almost non-existent feel to the hand. Much thinner than other film materials, the decals offer excellent durability, even after repeated washings! How great is that? Have a look at some of their designs!
My son Parker would love this! This would be perfect for a superhero Birthday Party!
This is a classic personalized shirt. It will never get old!

I think little birdie. So sweet!
I may have to get my kids this St Patty Day design. How cute is it?
Miss Morgan's Designs was so kind to send Presley an adorable decal in none other than Mimi (Minnie Mouse). When I got the package I went out and bought a cheap plain white shirt from the Child.rens Place so I could have something to put it on. It was so easy to apply. E.A.S.Y.! She sent me a link to a step by step video to watch on how to apply it. First I laid the black Mickey head down along with her name and ironed it with the cloth she sent for about 30sec to 1 min. Then I laid the red bow down and repeated the ironing, then the white dots. The whole thing took less than 5 minutes to create! It was super easy. When I finished it, I showed it to PK and she went nuts! She wanted it right then. So cute. Here are a few pictures of me creating the shirt :)

Miss Morgan's Designs is offering all of my readers a discount of 15% off if you use the discount code SMILE15. You can use this code until 1/31! I will be using this code, will you?
