Go, Fight, Win!!

I have been so busy lately with the girls and big part of that is due to cheerleading. I'm the assistant cheer coach for their team and it is taking a lot more of my time than I realized. But the girls LOVE it so it makes me love it too!

They have to perform a dance routine during half time at their homecoming game next month so I have to start making up their routine. Should be fun since I haven't danced formally since college! LOL Hope the girls don't think it's lame! LOL

I'm on the PTA Board this year too and did not realize how much time that takes as well. These ladies are serious about their PTA! LOL

So that is why sewing has seem to take a back seat these days. But with the economy the way it is right now sales have slowed way down for everyone. That is why I am now making more sweet, practical outfits over at Etsy. If you haven't had a chance to pop over there, please do to take a peek at all the fabulous things I have listed at super awesome prices.

I will post some pics of my new stuff on another day. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog!

Introducing My Newest Design...The Curtsy Skirt!

I'm starting to focus more of my energies over at Etsy now. It just makes more sense to make practical yet affordable couture clothing versus spending countless hours making these over the top creations that most people just cannot afford!

While I still love making those types of designs, I will reserve those types of outfits for special Ebay listings.

My newest creation is a line of FABULOUS skirts I'm calling The Curtsy Skirt! They have angled panels that give it just the right amount of flare at the bottom as if she were curtsying all on her own!

These skirts will only be available on Etsy for the time being. But be on the lookout for more pieces to my new line of clothing!

I just listed this fabulous 4pc set on Ebay! I just love this fabric called Smores by Moda. Such fun, girly colors!

I seem to always sway back and forth between the Euro style of designs and the more classic styles. It keeps the designing part of my job fun and exciting!

Now I can take a breath for just a minute before I start working on some custom orders. It just never seems to end! LOL

Hooty Boo!!!

I've got a guest launch today and the theme is Halloween and this is what I came up with. I wanted to make something that wasn't necessarily so specific to Halloween.

I think you can wear this one all fall and winter and not feel it's just a Halloween set! How comfy is knit fabric for little ones anyway?

Sydney just loved this one so this is gonna be a keeper for us! So I will custom make this one to the winning bidder!

I will also have the most fabulous Holiday set up tomorrow for Boutique Eden's launch that you just won't want to miss! So go check out my Ebay listings this week when you get a chance!!

Back to School Already???

Wow, what a summer it has been! So sorry for not surprises there! LOL We've been vacationing and the girls have been in some summer camps and the time just flew by!

Now it's August and I'm back in full swing with designing and sewing. I've got some new plans for Southern Sass Couture's future and will be sharing those with you soon! In the meantime I'm planning on continuing to list some of my designs on Ebay, but really plan on focusing more of my energy on Etsy.

I'm not sure why I cannot catch on to this whole blogging thing. I'm trying though! It seems I spend time on trying to update my links, trying to get current pictures uploaded, etc. and it's taking away from so many other things that need to get done!

I do hope everyone has had a wonderful summer break and looking forward to the fall and holiday season. I just cannot believe it is almost here! Wow!

I PROMISE I will make an effort to blog more and keep you updated on what is going on with me and Southern Sass Couture! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just wanted to post to say what a terrible blogger I am! LOL I just seem to have no time to sit down and type out my thoughts, etc. Between sewing, school functions, recitals, swim lessons, etc. I find myself running the kids from place to place and frantically trying to sew between any free moment I have! I'm hoping once school is out for summer break, I will have a bit more free time to share my thoughts here.

So I'm apologizing to those that actually pop on here to read my blog. I'm sure most have given up since I havent' posted in 2 months! Geez!

With all of that said, I did want to let you know that I will be going on vacation to the beach the second week of June. Yea!!! A full week of rest and relaxation...yeah right! I forgot I'm taking the kids! LOL Seriously, it will be good to just get away with family and friends to have some fun. We are going with 2 other couples and their children and it should be a great time. We are big game players so once we put the kids to bed we will play poker, games and the Wii.

Complete change of subject. I cannot wait until June 22nd! The Wii will be releasing Rock Band. If you have never played that on XBox or Playstation, then you MUST give it a try. Soooo fun! One person can sing, one plays lead guitar, one plass bass guitar and one is the drummer. You will have to purchase the extra guitar BTW. Loads of fun! I have a feeling when we get it, I won't be blogging or sewing. I will be practicing my drumming skills! LOL Thanks for listening. I will try to be a better blogger in the future!

I've been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Angel of Tada Creations. I've never been tagged before and had no idea what that was, but once I read Angel's blog I understood! LOL

Here are the rules:

2. Many, many years ago, I was a body builder and trained for Miss Fitness USA.
3. I have a mild case of OCD and I will share one odd thing that I do. When I take a shower I can only turn over my left shoulder to face the water and then back over my right to let the water spray my back. I can never make a full circle in the shower. How weird is that? LOL
4. I am a neat freak and my friends call my house a museum and always joke that you can literally eat off my floors. (You really can! LOL)
5. I used to suffer from anorexia which is partially what led me to become a Registered Dietitian.
