Pin it to Win it! Giveaway - Baby Poshkini from Haute and Posh Designs!!

HEY! Summer is here and it's HOT out there! Who doesn't like to cool down at the beach?
 I just created  a super cute Poshkini to wear on those fun summer beach trips and I want to give one away to a lucky winner! Just keep scrolling for the deets.

This weekend we took a little trip to the beach in Jacksonville. It was way windy because it had just stormed and I was so disappointed because I couldn't wait to take some decent photos of my princess in her posh new suit. Instead all I got were these crummy ones in the house. :-( She thought she was oh so cute once I put her in the mirror, but quickly lost interest once TMNT came on.

 Once we got there she spent a lot of time looking like this...


...and this.

Needless to say she was not amused, but loved her suit none the less.
Anyway, I loved it so much I decided to add it to my shop and even better GIVE ONE AWAY!

What I've Got Brewing

     Well you may or may not know, but I have really gotten into creating clothing, mostly children's (more specifically girls) and I've decided to start a business separate from Haute & Posh to sell clothing and accessories. I have a name, but I'm not ready to share until I purchase the DBA for it. Below is my cutie pie niece Anna in a skirt and embellished top I made her when she visited for a month in March.

  I also took the photos, I'm beginning to think I'm a Photo Hobbyist. Photography definitely excites me, but I think more on a personal level, like a I-am-just-playing-around-with-a-camera-type-of-way. Here is my daughter in her mama exclusive romper. She's not as easy to shoot ans my niece, who's a little ham. I loved the colors of the fabric so bright and summery. I made both outfits using patterns from Create Kids Couture. If you sew or are thinking about trying they have a wonderful sewing community on Facebook that you can join HERE.

Loved using my gorgeous maternity photos for this sample
  "A new business?" you might say. "Did you have a business before that?", well yes, I do. I own Haute & Posh Designs where I design digital and printable paper goods like invitations, announcements, flyers and brochures, but I also make and sell event decor and provide styling services. A friend of mine calls it my "Party Hustle".

 The same way that Yoga is really about breathing, my business is really about creating experiences. I believe that through detail and personal
touches an event is a well designed life experience. Also, I like to create modern fairytales: beautiful clothes and parties and special occasions and elegant invitations. I sort of try to live in one myself. I very much have a passion for crafting and I would like to turn that passion into something where I can be happy doing something I love, but still provide for my family.

How has that been working out you say? Honestly, not very well. I have a tendency to put more into a project/request than is possible to profit from; by letting my client give me an impossibly low price that limits the spectacular-ness that I can give them. The only other problem is when I charge what I need to I get less interest in my services, but I have come to the conclusion that I just need to make better stuff! It's not you or my fans or maybe not even me: it's my resources... As a start-up I have very few resources and that's where I have to get creative, which I think I've done so look for some pretty little things to come from me around the fall. :-)
