2013 - 26 Acts of Random kindness

I'm sure many of you are fully aware of the tragic events that unfolded at Sandy Hook earlier this month. If you are like me, these children will never be far from your mind. You hug your own children close and are thankful that they come home to you each school day.

One of the good things that came out of this was from Ann Curry who invited everyone to commit 26 random act of kindness in memory of the victims who were lost that day.

Come 2013 - I will be doing just this. I strongly urge you to check out this facebook page and discover this movement for yourself. I am already planning my first act! ;)

Giveaway day #11

And here we are at day #11! This one is a mom and me give away with two headbands featuring the same interchangeable flowers, as well as an adult and preschooler sized kufi hat with matching flower, two 3 inch headbands with one flower! You'll both look super cute! To win, simply comment under this post. Ends at 12pm EST tomorrow.

On a more serious note - i'm asking for your help. If your crafty, have a product or just want to help! Please email me at to participate in the auction starting this Friday!

I always do my best to try and help out through Shelby Styles supporting various fund raisers, charities etc etc. Not often do I post asking for help when it's personal and close to home. Today, I'm asking just that!!! Small business owners...
, Vendors, anyone wanting to get your name out etc etc. I NEED your help! Last month my husband's 31 year old cousin passed away from cancer. She was born with Blooms which is a rare disorder and has been fighting her WHOLE life. She was receiving assistance from the government and because of that lived on very little money. Our family has gone to assistance asking for their help in covering final costs, only to have been rejected. My husband's aunt has been home looking after his cousin and has been unable to work, she's also been caring for her son who has severe epilepsy. I'm outraged that they have gone through so much already and now are dealing with this burden! I would love to run a auction for them this weekend on my page to help with exspenses. Vendors - please let me know if you would be willing to participate. I need to pull this together quickly. Here is the link to the petition that was denied, it holds more info.

Vendors - in exchange for your participating and agreeing to donate your funds, I will promote each one of you individually on my blog by running a feature.

RIP Trace.....

You will be excited to know however, that I will on my blog daily come December 3rd, as this is when I will be starting my 12 days of Christmas give away! Be sure to check back for details!

So, non business related - my *baby* girl turned 3 last week. My beautiful lil miss is now a saucy, smart and entertaining little person who is developing her own interests, personality and attitude! Lord help me!

Here is a photo when she was just days old:

And here she is now (mommy and her were having a girls day, getting our feet did!)

My little miss has developed quite the love of Dora the Explorer and decided this is what the theme of her birthday was. We had the cake, the balloon, the decorations and even a Dora dance party done at Groove Studio's. ( )
Here is some photo's of my missy's big day!

Loot bags and contents. Loots bag were made by me to look like backpack and rescue pack, cookies were made by Allison Potts, zipper pulls by Kahn Kidz ( ), cupcake soaps by Super Sweet Treats ( ) and of course the Dora clips by yours truly!
She was thrilled to get this gifts, which she's been asking non stop for.

50 shades of........

I'm not a avid book reader in the least, but after hearing all the hype of the 50 shades series I had to check it out for myself.

I started into the first of the 3 books and was hooked. Like most women (let's be honest, it's mainly women reading this trilogy) I couldn't put it down. Ana and Christian became a part of my world. I laughed, I cried, I got angry and welllll - I blushed.

More then anything -  I now understood all the catch phrases and finally got what *The Red Room of Pain and Charlie Tango!* meant!!

As a result, my obessions with these book leaked into my business. Shown below is the result. Thank you Lisa of Kahn Kids for the awesome caps!

With that - Laters, Baby!!!

I had previously made this cake for someone else's birthday, and by request of my son I decided to make it for my hubby's birthday yesterday. If your a chocolate lover, this cake is for you!

For my Star Wars fan

Every now and then (read when I have a moment to spare) I like to try and get little projects done for my kids too!

My son is a major Star Wars fan and now that we have the Star Wars bedding, we are moving towards that theme for his room! This first is this Star Wars cork board/memory board made by moi.

Some of the detail on it

It's alot of fun having their input on how they would like it, and what things they would like on it!

Looking forward to next year!

These two are of course my favorite (because this is my daughter). My little fairy who loves her *butterfly wings*

This colour worked beautifully with this cutie's red little whisps

Love the way the black compliments this pink on this beautiful little lady

She was soooo sweet, love her little personality!

A little one who is close to our heart, we think the world of this pretty lil miss!

A repeat customer from last year, I can honestly say she gets cuter every year!

Our first little guy to take part, I could have just eaten him up! Makes an adorable little wizard!

I swear she couldn't possibly be any prettier! She was a natural!

Looking forward to doing this all again next year!!
