It's almost July?

Where does the time go??? This Friday will be July 1st and 15 days after that... my little Doodlebug will be 2 years old. I can't believe it's been that long since first holding her in my arms!!! I'm excited for her party and anxious to see how we're going to fit 15 people in our little apartment without crawling all over each other for 2 hours. I can't wait to decorate the place with all the handmade goodies I worked so hard on and LOTS of photos will be taken!!! Doodle will have a lot of fun too I'm sure!

I'm looking for model's for July so if anyone is interested in signing up, please let me know. Either shoot me a message through Facebook, or read about it here in the blog's archive! Email me at!

I'm hoping to receive pictures of all of my June clients soon! If you haven't seen photos, then you're in for a treat!


I'm thinking of having a contest once I receive more photos and sending the winner a referral prize! Let me know what you all think!

Until next time,

Blurbs, Snipets and what I did this week!!!

So I just sat Doodle in the kitchen floor with her Dora rug, her little plastic kitchen and put some water in it's sink. I gave her a spoon and a little cup and am gonna hope that I don't end up with a soaked kid in about 10 minutes. At least it bought me a little time to get on here and share a few cute snipets from other sites that I thought were awesome!

Then there's Tina Fey's prayer for her daughter:

And I loved this photo from SHEKNOWS Parenting.

I have a couple of hours until Doodle and I have to go over to the inlaws so I'll also share the birthday crafts I've been working on for the past week.

I love to share my crafts with family and friends and didn't want to spend a lot of money on Doodle's up comming birthday so I decided to make a lot of the decorations and what not...




This is just a few items I've made so far. I've decided to expand my business to include custom made party decorations such as what you see here! Let me know if you have any questions or would like to set up an order.

And lastly,
The "Take Your Pick" giveaway ends tomorrow so fill out the form HERE for your chance to win! 3 lucky people get to take their pick of any item from my Etsy shop (up to $15 value) and get FREE SHIPPING. That's $45 + shipping that I'm giving away just because I love my fans! I appreciate that I now have over 1200 Facebook fans and that number grows everyday. Soon, DoodleBoop Designs will be BIG and I'll have all of you to thank for it!

Until next time,

Take Your Pick Giveaway!

New things to come!

I haven't posted to the blog in a while and figured it was about time to get back to it!

(The Excuse) - Our TV in our bedroom died a few weeks ago and the hubby and I always use it to help put us to sleep. Well, since we couldn't do that, we got on a Netflix kick and became addicted to a show called The Legend of The Seeker! We've watched over 14 episodes so far and with each one lasting at least 40 minutes... (you do the math) That's a lot of time invested!

My wonderful parents came by this past Monday and gave the hubby a 24" LED TV as a gift for his B-day comming up on Friday! Needless to say, this helps us both out and now we can lay in bed and watch our shows with a really great picture! Hubby also got the new Duke Nukem game and I'm sure he'll be glued to the Xbox for the next few weeks! This gives me the opportunity to get some crafting done!

Anywho... Now that I'm back at it, I thought I'd post some of the clutches I made a while back on my Etsy shop! I'm curious to see what you all think of them! I only have 3 posted so far but I've been busy today taking photos and plan to get a few more up today!


I have a few donations going on right now through my Facebook page. One at Hair Blooms by Kristen and the other is at Make Your Mark. With Michelle! I am also participating in a silent auction with Kristen Nelson from MARY KAY by Kristen Nelson (Independent Beauty Consultant) to help out a family in need. Here is what she posted on her Facebook page about the auction: Charity event where ALL proceeds will be donated to a widower & her 4 yr old lil' girl whom recently lost their prince charming of a husband & father, at the young age of 39. Please let me know if you'd like to help. I have 2 sponsors so far, but we need more help! For Sponsoring, your names will be added to a card being presented to this family, along with the earnings.

If there is anyone else needing sponsors, please let me know. I usually try to sponsor a few giveaways each month!

I have the MODELING & REFERRAL programs going on right now and I hope to participate in some craft shows comming up in the fall as well... Lots to keep me busy!

Stay tuned for new items and a GIVEAWAY!!!!


Until next time,
