I need your help

I've been working on a little something. . .OK, potentially a big something.
For me anyway.

See, I'd like to start my own business. I want to design and make fun, bold, whimsical dresses (perfect for twirling!!) and clothing for your little girls. Right now it is in the very infant stages. . .mostly in my head. But that's the way I work. I've been mulling and planning for awhile. And now, I'm taking baby steps.

This is where you come in.

I'm working on a logo. I mean after all, you can't have a business without a logo!!! I was wondering if you could give me some feedback and tell me what you think of it at this point. Love it? Hate it? Could care less?


Oh, and the name. That's the sister's middle names. Charlie Reese & Peyton Grey. I love making dresses for my two little munchkins and seeing them happily twirling (well, just Charlie for now. we'll give Peyton just a little more time.) in the dresses I created just for them.

I hope to give that to your girls as well. And make them incredibly cute in the process!!!!

I've been designing clothing my whole life. To some degree. . .

When I was a little girl I made dresses out of socks for my Barbie dolls. In junior high and high school I designed books and books of ice skating costumes and wedding dresses—and then gave them to classmates to color. I've been sewing since my Grandma taught me when I was about 12. And I rarely use patterns or stick to them when I do.

Granted, at this point you might be thinking "I really haven't seen to many children's dresses on this blog" and you're right. And you might not for awhile. I sort of have this house to finish remodeling and a full time job and such. But you will see more. And one day you just might find yourself buying a dress for your little one from me.

I hope that day comes sooner rather than later!!

But please let me know what you think of the logo. Even if you've never left a comment before, I'd love to hear your opinion.


  1. Logo looks good. I don't have a logo and ought to do that sometime. I picked my kids middle names for my etsy shop too. Perry Jayne. Although, every couple weeks when my house is messy and I'm busy filling orders and feel overwhelmed, I plan on closing up shop. Then of course I never do. :)
    Good luck in your business ventures! Can't wait to see more pretty dresses.

  2. The logo is really cute; I love how it looks both grown-up and little-girly at the same time. The only thing I might like to see is how it looks in colors other than black.

    Good luck!

  3. It is best to build a logo in black & white and then once it's done add color. That way you can be sure it will work in any format. The final will not be black! Don't you worry!! :) Thanks for the feedback!!

  4. I was going to write you and tell you I like your "pj Friday" idea! I really like the logo - how exciting! :) Good luck - hopefully I'll get to buy a dress for Avery sometime! :)

  5. I like the logo idea and style as well! Being a you think there will be any jealousy because little sister's name is before big sister's?!
    I too hope I can get a twirly dress for Lo too! Your girls are super cute (and always lookin' sylin'!!)

  6. Michele, I have considered the little is first issue, and honestly, she's first because with that font the names somehow magically fit together in that order. And it's alphabetical, so I can always fall back on that for a reason!! :)

  7. I realy like it!!! I can see it in a huge store window front now!! I am excited for you and hope that I can get some dresses for my little princess!!


I'm so glad that you've stopped by this blog & I LOVE hearing your feedback and questions — however, as this blog is no longer active I may not see it!! But no worries! I've moved all content from this blog to my new website and would appreciate it if you visited me over there: Lori
