I've looked over my blog posts from the last year and was so sad to notice that Nash has made very, very few blog appearances. I have two children, you ask? Yes I do. I have an extremely photogenic soon-to-be-5-year-old who does all my modeling for me (she is pretty much star of the show here on the blog) and a 15-month-old who has been unintentionally getting the brush off.

I'm sure it has to do with me being not a very good blogger, and also because I'm not really sure what this blog is. It's not exactly a blog for my business. It's not a personal journal where I share every detail of my life. I don't regularly share tutorials and I am not trying to grow my blog into a business. I don't know much, but what I do know is that I occassionally really, really like to blog about things and that nobody puts my baby in a corner. Nash that is.

Since I just finished Nashy boy's baby book and I should receive it any day, I thought I would share my top 10 favorite photos from his first year of life. I don't mean best photographic quality photos, but just my favorite 10 pictures of the little man who stole my heart.

If you couldn't tell, he is the sweetest, cuddliest, squishiest little joy in my life. And he made a perfect Dopey for Halloween.

Halloween in the Shop

Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year! For me it is as much fun as Christmas, minus all the stress. I have added my Halloween dresses to the shop for pre-order in preparation for all the fun. I will be making this Halloween Maxi Dress again that comes with the orange knit rosette belt.

This dress is perfect for any witch or pirate costume, but for much more than just the month of October. Last year I put together these little outfit ideas and where I sourced everything from, although it was a year ago so not sure if the sources are good anymore. Just some ideas on how you can wear this maxi...

And then there is the Halloween Tie Dress. This is my fourth season making this dress! Look how little Drew is. Every year I have been able to source enough of this amazing plaid fabric, but this year it seems to be discontinued. I can't find it anywhere! So I only have some fabric leftover from last year and will only be able to make a few more. Kind of sad.

One year the dress was a handpicked item on the front page of Etsy! See:

I love this dress and will miss it as it moves on to retirement.

I also miss the little toddler in these pictures. She turns five next month. What. the. heck.
