Summer Closure

As September approaches so does a hectic schedule... My son will be in school, swimming lessons start, and new items will be added to the shop as online shopping starts to perk up again once the weather gets cooler.

Although I am sad that yet another summer seemed to move by too quickly, I always look forward to a routine and of course chunky sweaters, and Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks (I am totally bribing a Starbucks employee to sell me a bottle of that syrup, so my Tassimo can start working out again).

I always look forward to seeing pumpkins and conjuring up Halloween costumes for the kids. Already my son is dreaming of a Hans Solo (Star Wars) costume, and I am trying to figure out a Harry Potter inspired costume for my daughter.

I have been stocking my online list of recipes with comfort foods such as Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gingerbread Cheesecake, and beef stew. Ahhhh how I love a good stew. Since we live close to the Rocky Mountains, it wont be long now before the weather turns cold and the leaves start to fall.

Here are a few images that been inspiring me lately!

How freakin good are these lattes?? Yummy!

We make our own dough all the time, so next time I will surprise the kids with cheese ghosts!

The perfect fall outfit! Comfortable yet stylish! Plus she probably is gulping down a Pumpkin Spice Latte!!

Halloween Samples

I was thrilled when Christina from Little Wellies asked me to design and create the hair accessories for her Disney Princess Halloween Costumes. I was already sold, but when she told me the photo shoot was taking place at Disneyland I had to be a part of this project. I designed hair accessories for Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White. As Little Wellies finished the costumes, I will post the pics! After the photoshoot, the headbands will be available at Giddy Up & Grow upon request!

Summer Sizzler

Since we live in Canada our summer season is very short. However, we enjoy every minute of it. This year our family headed west to B.C. where we enjoyed 10 days of family time, beach time and summer heat! Below are a few of my favorite summer holiday pics!

During our down time, I had a chance to sit back and get some inspiration for some new fall Giddy Up & Grow designs. Below are a few newbies!
