It's MY SITS Day!!!

After 47 years,  about 1 year of waiting, it is FINALLY my SITS day!  I honestly was shocked when I got the email last month that my blog would finally be featured.  I am very excited and honored to be featured on SITS, which stands for The Secret in the Sauce.  It's an amazing community of fellow bloggers who support eachother through comments.  Its a simple and ingenious way to meet other bloggers! 

A little bit about me...I am currently a stay at home mom to two elementary aged boys.  I decided back in 2009 that it'd be fun to open up my own little boutique style store and I started selling tutu's!  Yeah, I live with a bunch of boys, but make tutu's - kind of ironic, isn't it?!  It's definitely been a journey and for those of you who own your own small, online business, you can attest to the fact that it takes a lot of hard work, time and marketing of your product....

Anyway, I am just so happy that you have stopped by my blog!  Besides writing about my tutu's, I also talk about food (who doesn't love a peanut butter bon bon?!), books, crafts and other bloggers to keep things interesting!  My posts are usually pretty short, as my attention span is not at all long these days.  I totally blame that on parenting two rowdy kids!  So, in my promise to keep things short, I will sign off for now....thanks for visiting and come back soon!!

    I love tutus and yours are adorable. I have a tutu wearing princess and I have so much fun dressing her. Big tutus and big bows are her signature. (okay, mine I guess since she is just now learning to say No and Yes.)

    Have a great day.

  25. Cheers to you on your SITS day! I have also been waiting a looooong time to be featured (my day is coming up in a few short weeks, yippie!)

    I love that you make such sweet and darling creations in the midst of your role as a mama to boys. I've got two boys in my midst as well.

    Hope you enjoy your day!

  26. Happy SITS day! I love the tutus. I have boys as well but I don't think it's crazy at all to do with tutus with no girls. Gives you something girly to mess with!

  44. Yay for your SITS day and your lovely blog. Way to go for getting out there with your cute tutus. I have made a cute craft from time to time, but have always shied away from entering the business. It take a lot of guts and a lot of hard work. So good job and keep those adorable tutus comin'. :)

  75. I was just gushing my love of tutus over at SITS. I used to take ballet, and have worn my fair share of them. Yours are so cute! If I were at all good at DIY projects, I would probably make tutus, myself, but I'm not so you won't get any competition from me! ;) I'm going to go look around at your blog now. Hope you've enjoyed your feature day! Best wishes!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love tutus so much! I do have a 2 yo daughter (probably to my 5 yo son's relief!) because I do love a good tutu. I loved seeing your post about your first tu-tu!

    Happy SITS Day!

    This is such a cute blog and I love the idea of Tutus. Do you have a shop? I can't get any of your links to work - possibly just my computer today!

    I hope you found lots of lovely new readers.

  83. I think it is so great that you are selling tutu's with 2 boys. I have 4 boys and my sis has 2 boys!! We also started our own business selling designer hospital gowns (we are both nurses) and know what it is like to run a busines, have a family and still work in the work world!! It does require a lot of energy but so worth it so congrats to you!!! Happy SITS day (a little late:-))
