I will be busy today posting aprons in my store.  I just listed this one today.

And it has the cutest little attached pocket trimmed in ric rac.  It is the perfect size for your recipe card.

Here is another half apron that I had listed.  It sold in just one day!

Thanks for looking! And remember FREE SHIPPING!

a little gift

Just for you.  As a way of saying thank you for all who have been following me and my katie jean creations.  I am offering free shipping on my site.  Now through December 15th all shipping will be free!  Just visit my etsy or katie jean to see for yourself.

There are two other reasons for me doing this.  I know that everyone is tight for cash this year.  And I would really love to encourage everyone to buy handmade.  The other reason is that I haven't planned any upcoming shows for the holidays.  I couldn't find any dates that worked for me and I don't really like doing December shows.  It cuts into my family time, and my own personal Christmas gift making!

So if you love katie jean, please visit my site and do some shopping.  Remember *free shipping!*  I will be adding new items daily!  And thank you!!

I went to Disneyland last weekend!  Totally surprised my oldest son, Q who hasn't been there yet.  I told him that morning we were driving down to LA.  He didn't believe me.  It was just the two of us!  I felt so lucky to be sharing the magical day with him.  So lucky to be his mom :)

He was such a trooper.  We got there at 8:30 and left that night at 10:30!  Such a cool day and no huge lines.  My favorite was finally going on the Matterhorn.  We sat in the very front.  Q didn't like it as much as I did!

Since it was so close to being Christmas you know I had to take pic's of the decorations.  These were the lamp posts in the New Orleans area of Disney.

Aren't they so fancy!  I just love the vivid colors.  Only in Disney!

I think I'll have a pink and purple Christmas too!  Feliz Navidad.

just look

Look what Sadie Lou did!  She put my little hanky apron top on the front page of Lollishops.  Such a cute site and a fun place to shop.  Have yourself a look around!

Thank you Sadie Lou for the little surprise.  You're the best!

finding a new home

ella the elephant

Ella has been my inspiration for some time now. But I am finally ready to release her to a good home and allow her bring some sunshine in on someone new.  So today I am listing Ella on katie jean.

Ella was handmade by me, using a vintage toy as my pattern. The origianl ella was made by my husband's grandmother from Kansas. It might be more of an antique than simply vintage.

Ella is made using vintage linens in the cheeriest shades of pink, yellow, orange, and green. The eyes are sewn on buttons and she has a moss green ribbon tail.  Although Ella is not intended for small children, she would be a cute addition as a little shelf decoration.
