I know, I've been very MIA around here. Truth be told, I've been out of town and I have also been recovering veeeerrrrry slooooooowly from the yuckiness that came through our home.

Today, I thought I'd take the opportunity to let you know that over on my Facebook page I'm offering a great Cyber Monday discount on some of my most popular items! Check out the album and email me your orders. Remember all these dresses can and have been made in Christmas fabrics as well, if you are looking for a new Christmas outfit! So, check it out...and HAPPY SHOPPING!

My New Giveaway is Finally Being Announced :)

I know, I've been totally hinting on my Facebook page for a while now about this new giveaway I'm having. My house got hit with some nasty bugs and I was the last of the crew to catch them, so while I am a little late I'm totally excited to finally announce it!

My girls over at AquaSeventy6 and I have put our creative juices together and decided to host two awesome giveaways that we'll be hosted separately on each of our sites! Are you all familiar with the super talented and beautiful girls over at AquaSeventy6? No, you say...well here is a little background: These two chicas are longtime friends and Tampa natives who put their mutual love for all things vintage/bohemian and started this awesome blog and shop that is a unique and fantastic collaboration of both of their amazing talents. Despite the fact that these two lovelys have up and left the Tampa Bay area within the last year, they still continue to get their creative-on from a distance and sell their amazing stuff to clients near and far! Pretty cool, right?

Well, I thought seeing how I'm such a fan of these two, both creatively and personally, we HAD to put together a cool giveaway! How can you partake in this awesomeness, you ask? Well the fun starts right on over to AquaSeventy6
where they will be giving one of my lovely k.a.i-y.a followers a chance of snaggin' a totally beautiful and their very popular Yoga Mat Bag. I mean seriously, isn't this bag DA' BOMB! I could totally see myself struttin' into my Hot Flow Yoga class rockin' one of these bad boys! Best part is it's totally washable and handmade...and you know we all love that, right???

So here is whatcha got to do to enter!!!
1.) Become a follower of k.a.i-y.a. on Google Friend Connect (that is that little box on the side bar under the word “followers”. If you are already a follower, just leave a comment stating “I follow k.a.i-y.a.”

Holiday Traditions

I have to admit that growing up, I didn't come from a family with many traditions. I mean, yeah we had the basic gatherings and celebrations; but really most Colombians I know don't tend to have them.

On the other hand, McHubs grew up with TONS of traditions that I absolutely being making cookies during the holiday season. I started this tradition with my family and I have to say we're HUGE fans!! With K's allergies we have to find a creative alternative to those dairy-filled cookies so scoring vegan chocolate chips was really the highlight of our year!! Thank goodness for vegans, or my daughter would be seriously deprived. In this house, we also do a ton of cooking and entertaining, and my daughter like most other kids I know LOVES to get in on the cooking action! Aprons are essential when prepping said meals...especially when I have a sidekick under the age of 5 who is as messy as her momma in the kitchen :) These aprons are adorable and perfectly fitted to your little one's body. I can make this in an array of fabrics and characters. In fact, I'm working on the superhero and princess versions of these aprons right now for gifts or other occasions :) Since traditions usually involve all members of the family I made the mom version of this apron, high neck and ruffled perfect for keeping your tops clear of any food :)
Size Kids: Small-Large
Cost: $15


Size Moms: Small-Large
Cost: $18


Sets: Sibling Set
Cost: $28


Sets: Mom/Brother/Sister
Cost: $40


**Please note, that several different Christmas fabrics will be used on these aprons**

Last year, I also started a new tradition with my family...matching Christmas PJs! These things were a HUGE hit and we loved waking up wearing our super comfy pjs and opening all our Christmas swag :) I'm enamored by this tradition as I was able to include both my mom and little brother! I'm already working on the 2011 version of our Christmas jammies! I have an array of fabrics you can choose from and will be happy to make the mom/dad version of these as well.
Here is a little sneak-peek at what this year's jammies will look like. Kaiya modeled this order for me and it was seriously difficult to get her to take them of...she loves how comfy they are!

I will post more fabric options later.
