So I have a bunch of designer friends, but only a few of the relationships have started online... this blogging world is still so new to me and I am really blown away by how I can get sucked in anytime I sit down to catch up even on a few.
Somehow - I can't even remember now, I found Rubyellen's blog and began following it. She was the inspiration for the guitars that I made the kids a few months ago. Her adorable kids are named Brave and True, which really resonates with a gal named Liberty with a sister named Victory and a daughter named Mercy.
Ruby and I have joked over email that we are the bizarro world versions of each other... we'll both end up making headbands in the same week (click here to see hers) - when we haven't ever tried them before, or other random things, like how we both made clothes with big pockets for our girls this week.
(see hers - does it get any cuter? I told her I want some mushrooms...)
Well, since the princess party is this weekend, I finally had an excuse to place an order for one of Rubyellen's adorable crowns. It arrived today (so quick!) and I am dying to show it to the Design Director when she gets home from grandma's house today.
(I also ordered a mama clip for myself and though I am just hanging out by myself at the house today, I'm wearing it! I love it!)
Rubyellen's blog and a custom bag and pattern she made were also featured on Free People's blog this week - what a huge honor for her! I think her giveaway is still open, so plug in and see if you can win the purse she made - and download the instructions to make one yourself!
I hope you like my new friend, I do. I hope you feel inspired by her amazing creative gifts and check out her etsy shop! She used to live in LA, but is considering moving back and I'm excited for the day we can have our bizarro worlds collide. I think it will be lovely.
So I have already blogged about Shauna at Poor Pitiful Pearl - how she is an awesome designer, with the coolest recycled clothing... We wear a lot of her creations around here.
Well, I am spreading the word that she is in LA and having a trunk show in Hermosa Beach next week.
details below. and you can look for me, but expect to see me wearing my PPP, not my Libby Dibby!!!!
Sol Baby is thrilled to host a special trunk show featuring one of our favorite brands Poor Pitiful Pearl, by designer Shauna Hursh.
The philosophy is wholesome and purposeful, the styling is boho-chic cool, the quality is second to none, and knowing you have purchased a piece that is not only one-of-a-kind, but was recycled, should make you feel really, really good about yourself.
Please join us Wednesday, October 8th from 5pm to 8pm for some funky fashions, food and fun. It’s a casual event so feel free to drop in when you can and bring a friend! There will not be a presentation, but rather we encourage you to check out each custom made piece and perhaps you will find the one that speaks to you. She will have women’s and little girls items.
We will have other in store specials for the event as well.
Kids are welcome too. Hope to see you there!

Anyhow... The whole world is changing when Momma gets a minivan and makes doll clothes in the span of a week. I hope I can stay just a little bit hip... I might be losing my cool, but if a certain 4 year old ( the princess party is in 4 days) appreciates it, I think I'm ok.
