I was so excited to wake upt his morning and find that Little Snugglies by Val is now a member of the EtsyKids Team! The EtsyKids team is a diverse group of talented and dedicated Etsy shop owners making items for babies, toddlers, and children. All items are focused on kids and they are all handmade. All items sellers can be found on Etsy and it is a great way to narrow your Etsy search when looking for great kids items! Right now the EtsyKids website is featuring a shopping guide that is excellent for back to school and gift ideas. The EtsyKids blog is also a great source of information.

Again I'm honored to be a part of this group. Love to see how LSBV is continuing to grow. I love networking! Are any readers here a part of EtsyKids? I'd love to network with you as well! For everyone else, happy shopping, and happy Sunday!

So sad to see the news headlines from Aura, Colorado this morning. Prayers to the families of the victims and to all of those that were injured and there to witness such a tragedy. What is the world coming to?

Have a good Friday everyone.

It has been a very LONG time!

Hello everyone! How have you been? I can't believe I haven't updated since November! Wow! It has been a very busy Winter and Spring for the Little Snugglies by Val Family. My hubby returned from his deployment in February and we didn't have long until it was time to PCS from Arizona to Illinois. The move was crazy, getting our Arizona house rented was stressful, and we received some happy news! We are expecting baby # 4 due January 4, 2013! We moved into our new house on Scott Air Force Base in June and have been getting settled ever since. Getting my studio back up and running has been a challenge. Trying to find a good area in the house and keep up with order, model ideas, book keeping, you name it! August will be a busy month for us as well as hubby starts his TDY rotations, and my oldest two kiddos start 1st grade and preschool. My two year old will be my sidekick :). We also should find out the gender of our baby on August 2nd! :)

So, that is the reason for such a long hiatus. I have some good ideas to revamp the blog. I'll start with regular posts tomorrow. I'm going to be focusing on back to school items. If you are an Etsy shop owner and have some great back to school products please leave a link to the item in the comments.

The Etsy shop has lots of new items. A back to school sale will Start August 1, 2012 allowing all shoppers to receive 10% off of your orders through August. Also, our facebook page is currently being promoted today by Model Life Magazine! Several of the models that I use are featured in this publication, and I highly recommend it to keep up with the latest in kids boutique apparel and modeling! If you head over to their Model Life Magazine Blog you will see instrucitions with how to win a $50 gift credit to my Little Snugglies by Val etsy shop. This is a great deal!

Okay, more to come soon! Hope to hear from you!
