Joel Dewberry comments on Lemons and Lollis products!

So... I tried something I never did before and actually sent an email to the fabric designer with links to my creations. I honestly figured I wouldn't get a response - especially considering this guy just released the most beautiful line and I figured he would have emails coming out the wazoo!! To my surprise I got the sweetest email back from JOEL DEWBERRY and it was within 24 hours of me sending my email!! WOW... I was so excited I had to share it here. Here is what he said:

Corina,I was delighted to see your recent creations! To be honest, I came across your EEVAA dress on my own yesterday prior to your email. I try to make a habit of going online, a couple of times a week, to research what is happening with my fabric. What a happy surprise to begin seeing my fabric designs show up on such beautiful projects. It is very rewarding as a fabric designer to see other talented designers like yourself get excited and use my fabric. Thank you. I wish you the best of luck and hope your store is a success.

Toddler Dresses!!! YIPEE!

I have been "chomping' at the bit" (who says that anyways)... to make toddler dresses - partly because my little sweet pea can't wear my creations anymore - she is growing like a weed!!! Plus.. I wanted to create lines that wouldn't leave big sis out. My goal is to have a baby collection and a coordinating toddler girl collection. That way when the new baby is born - big sis can get a little surprise too!!!

When I came across Joel Dewberry's new collection - I knew this was it! I am so pleased with how this dress turned out. It's simple and classic design will make it timeless. It is extremely well constructed with surged seams that are completely encased in the dress - making it a great hand-me-down dress lasting lifetimes. It is reversible giving you two designer looks in one. Plus it is roomy enough you can layer it over a simple white t-shirt and jeans as the seasons begin to change giving your little girl that bohemian chic look! Finally, the cherry on top, I will use it as a cover-up. My daughters latest trick is dribbling her drink down her chin and onto whatever clothes she happens to be wearing. So... I'll keep one in my bag and when we are out shopping and we need a quick wardrobe change - I can throw it over her clothes and we are off!!!

I call it my eeva dress - named after my sweet pea - see more at

Custom Work!

So I just finished a custom collection for the nicest lady. This set was made to coordinate with her daughters ballet class. I absolutely adore how this collection turned out. I will definitely need to repeat it in other fabrics (the ones in the pictures are the ones the customer sent to me - :( - they were so cute!!! Anyways.. Here are the pics - and no - they aren't for sale in my shop - I'll have to find that special fabric I can remake these appliques in.

New Kid on the Block Collection

I absolutely love Japanese fabric. They have the best designers - and unfortunately it cost a fortune to import it from Japan. BUT... I couldn't resist! I had to make something out of this fabulous house fabric I found. I call this my "New Kid on the Block" collection - and no - I am not celebrating the band from the 1990's! This is a great gender neutral collection in some of my favorite colors chocolate and turquoise! Check it out at

I have been contemplating expanding my collection to include toddler clothing - specifically little girl dresses and tops! When I came across this absolutely FABULOUS new fabric designer JOEL dewberry - I figured this would be my opportunity! To invest in whole bolts of fabric for my Mommy run shop is such a big investment for me! So... I have been waiting for something I just truly LOVE! That way if it doesn't sell - I know I will use it for myself and LOVE it!! I honestly don't think I'll have problems with this designer collection! I can't wait to get it in my hands - Ordered and hopefully here in two weeks - I apparently made it in the first shipment from the manufacturer - YEAH!!! So keep your eyes out and subscribe to a feed of my blog if you want to know when it hits the store!!

We're Goin' BANANAS!!

My daughter loves the monkeys at the zoo! They are by far her most favorite animal and she can watch them for minutes! Which considering she is almost 2 - that is a LONG attention span! We moved from San Antonio about 6 months ago to Savannah. San Antonio had the best zoo - we had an annual pass and only lived about 25 minutes from the zoo. So trips were weekly! Unfortunately their is no zoo in Savannah and the closest zoo is Jacksonville, Florida - about a 2 hour drive from our house. So needless to say we are missing the monkeys!!! We don't get down to Jacksonville as often as our trips in Savannah - so I decided to bring the monkeys to us! Presenting our "Goin' Banana's" Collection!! A fun gender neutral collection - great for any little monkey! I love this set - simple, funky and the little bum patch just threw it over the edge!!! Anyways.. to check out this collection and more please visit our shop at

Japanese Fabric Imported

I am so excited!! I absolutely love Japanese fabric - I have wanted to use it in my shop for sometime now - but as pricey as it is - I haven't been able to work it in - without breaking the bank - or charging a fortune!!! Well.. I finally got a great idea where I can incorporate it and get my customers some fabulous japanese prints - that won't break the bank! These are two coming to me as we speak all the way from JAPAN! Yipee!!! I'll guess you will just have to wait and see what creations come of it - TRUST me - you will want to see these- The ideas are just flowing!!! I can't wait!

WILD CHILD handmade Onesie, BIB, Burp Cloth, Barrettes

I say this all the time - but everytime I make a new creation - I SWEAR it is my favorite... and this one is no exception. I call it my WILD CHILD. Which would have been perfect for my little baby girl - as she was just that. Keeping her Daddy and I up till all hours of the night. Her days and nights were mixed up for what seemed to be an eternity! Thankfully mommy won the battle (still fighting the war) and she sleeps through the night! My husband is already asking for baby number 2 - how quickly he forgets - eh? Personally I don't think I am ready for all those sleepless nights again! They are still fresh in my memory! To see more of my creations click here.
