A sneak peek...

at what's been going on here at Hootenanny Studios.
(Mermaid denim jacket~Peasant Skirt~Flower Cap)
I found these yummy fabrics that are tie dye~Batiky~oh so bright and wonderful and I knew that they had to be included in the new spring line of children's wear.
(Close up of the details on the jacket...rick rack, buttons & flowers...oh my!)
Of course there are a few other things to include as well...Denim jackets, cool peasant skirts, crocheted caps and yummy embroidered t-shirts will also be appearing. I worked on this set yesterday and, by the end of the day, my daughter decided it would be the perfect outfit to wear to the big President's Show. (more on this later) Being a shameless self promoter...I let her!
(Mermaid closeup...)

Of course...she refused to wear the actual t-shirt that went with the outfit and chose, instead, a gymboree shirt. If you have ever tried to argue with a 3 year old girl about her choice of outfit...well...then you know why she went out looking like she did. (Flower cap)

And don't even look at those pastel socks that she chose to go with my nice, beatnik-bohemian outfit. It took everything I had to let her leave the house with that delightful combo on. Three year old girls are a tax on the delicate sensibilities of their Mothers.
But she's so darn cute!

And then there's this guy. I didn't notice until I uploaded the photos how very tall he seemed standing next to the Cricket. When did this happen and how did I miss it???
I like it better when he bends down to be level with the other two so I can delude myself into thinking that he is still that little 6 lb 4 oz baby I brought home not that long ago!
But...anyway...last night was the big President Show at school. The entire 2nd grade participates. They sing a whole bunch of patriotic songs and, with the state of the world right now, I have to admit that seeing these little guys up there singing about being proud to be American just about brought me to tears. It was seriously cute.
As were these two buddies who enjoyed the show together.
My daughter did not quite make it through the entire show. I realized she had fallen asleep when I felt her drool running down my arm. Delightful.
After the show we went back to the classroom and had a chance to visit with our friends.
My son wanted to show us his desk and how he had decorated it with his drawings. (Yes...I know...he is just like me...poor guy)

And then he wanted a picture with his teacher. Of course my husband wanted to know why the teachers back in our day did not look like the teachers today...Nice honey...real nice...
