Made by Lady Harris

Okay folks, I have an announcement :)
(No, I'm NOT pregnant!)
Surely I don't need to remind you of my money tyrants, or great searches to find a way to make some extra money, or of my 'enter every sweepstakes I can find' stage...but I'm hoping this is exactly what I've been looking for!
As an early birthday gift from Marc, my bro-in law, I am in business!!!!
Inspired from an infant seat canopy I made my niece Hartley, he has bought me a domain, set up my website, paypal, facebook and everything! And Jade even got me super cute tags to personalize my items!
Yes, you should be jealous...
Right now, it mainly features the infant seat canopies.

Anyways, I have a new cute little online store at! And I need you to check it out! Like I said before, right now I only have up infant seat canopies and bow ties, but also with the option of custom made products.
I have been sewing since elementary school and have always loved it! I have made a ton of these infant seat canopies for friends and family lately...(only wish I would have taken pictures of each one!) I will say, I honestly have a lot of sewing experience. Not tooting my own horn, but just being honest ;) I have made all sorts of clothes me and for my boys, my nieces, baby bedding for V, curtains, pillows, bags, bows, and I could go on and on....
However, I am hoping to add more as I get more business. I can't wait to add bedding, clothes, blankets, and all kinds of accessories, but you gotta start somewhere right?!?!
I am not a sales person, like NOT AT ALL. But here is the deal with the canopies, I feel like I don't have to give a pitch to sell them. The thing is, if you have had a baby, you have messed with trying to keep blankets over the top while they are sleeping or to keep the sun out, and for numerous other reasons. The bottom line is that they are just so practical. So very useful!
So, go check it out!
And let me know what you think :)

(and buy one for all those prego friends I know YOU have)
.....aaaaaaaaaaand you could like on facebook too!!!! :)

P.S. My blog is staying personal, so keep reading even if you don't become a customer!!! I promise not to use my blog for a bunch of advertising and such...just wanted to let everyone know about my shop :)

The Library

So I decided on a whim this morning to take V to the library for storytime. Right after L's OT we all got ready and headed out the door.
For some stupid reason, literally STUPID, I thought he might actually enjoy it. I thought he might like sitting with other kids and watch some animated librarian tell a story.
Let me start off by describing the way we look when we enter as a threesome to most anywhere. I am usually huffing, blowing hair out of my face, while attempting to keep my sunglasses from falling off my head, mainly bc if they do fall, there is a very good chance that I will not stop to pick them up. My eye is on the prize...getting us to our destination. My shirt, more times than not, is pinned up at my stomach from the 'bend and stand' motion I orchestrate to get the infant carrier on my right elbow. Inside the carrier is a happy little almost-6 month old w/glasses that are inherently in his mouth b/c he has been shaken like a tornado on his 'ride' inside. Behind the carrier is the emergency survival kit (aka the diaper bag) which I use maybe 5% of the time. Unfortunately, I cannot afford defeat in those moments, so on my shoulder it is, all day everyday (outside of the house). On my other side is a toddler. (enough said, or shall I continue?!) He is probably whining and squirming every way possible in attempt to break free and get back to a dog, rock, or absolutely nothing that he saw on the way from the car inside. There is a constant motion that the three of us, as a whole, make in order to balance all that is US.
Moving on.... So we make it inside the library. V is dying to be released, so I put him down and act as if he will calmly hold my hand and walk.
He will not.
So I scurry with 'all' in tow and pleadingly encourage V to follow. He does, just kinda, but I'll accept it.
In the back there is a room inclosed in glass where all the good kids with their good parents are sitting...

That was all I wanted. To be one of them.
So we walked in.
The librarian was starting a song with her puppy puppet singing. This excited V, so he ran up to see the dog. Turns out the 'dog' wasn't so friendly. I set the carrier down and quickly grabbed V. I tried my darnedest to get him to sit in a chair with me. But he was pitching a fit. So we left the room, hoping he would calm and we could come back. But instead he ran around like hooligan....

Meanwhile, all the happy people were singing songs and adding handmotions as if all was right in the room. And you may laugh, but I kid you not, they were singing song after song without any posted lyrics and all the moms were participating and I couldn't help but think it was some kind of setup. Just to make me feel less-than-good about my parenting.
I had no choice but to leave. The whole fiasco lasted less than 5 minutes. It was a complete failure. We returned outside as quick as I could possibly get us there...

I'm fairly certain I heard a witch's cackle as we left the building....
And so, we won't be going back to the library for a while, unless a certain someone is given a tranquilizer first....
