Happy Fall!

Per my daughter's request, I made these cute little vintagey BOO blocks out of scrap wood that would otherwise be unusable. They made the perfect "scary" blocks!

Holiday Orders

The Chica Boutique is busier than I ever thought possible! I really appreciate all the business I have received! It is so fun to design and create. I've recently had to turn down some orders because I am booked solid, which is great! But, I have to be realistic in what I can do (especially being almost 9 months pregnant), and still be the wife and mother I want to be. :) I'm unable to take more orders at this time through the end of October. However, if you'd like to place a holiday order (to be received after November), please get that in to me ASAP so I can have you down, as I already have a list going for the holiday rush and it's almost full. For those of you who have already placed orders recently, no worries! Those are in the process of being made. Again, ThAnK YoU, ThAnK YoU, ThAnK YoU for all of the wonderful support!! XO

**If you are local, love creating and paying attention to detail, I may be looking for some help soon! I'd love to see The Chica Boutique continue to grow! More to come on that.**

Milestone Blocks

A mommy blogger out in California contacted me about making some of these blocks for her new baby. She is going to use these for her baby's milestone pictures. Each side has "Days, Weeks, Months, and Years". I though it was a sweet idea. I have to say, though, that the design and style were completely her idea....all the way down to the choice and layout of the papers. She knew exactly what she wanted. :)

I love new designs and this is one I can see becoming popular. :)

Jumbo Wooden Letter Blocks {Charlie}

I love the name Charlie for a little girl. It seems to be getting more and more popular as a little girl's name. So sweet. This is a vintage-designed set for another little pink Charlie. ;)

Boutique Letter Blocks with Photo Blocks {Emma}

Love to give coordinated gifts? Included with this block set is a gift tag, which attaches to the gift bag, and a matching boutique card.

Family Name Blocks {The Lobodas}

This set is on its way to Chicago as an anniversary gift. I don't think these photos do it justice (I need a photographer), but I love the patterns/papers used for this set.
