The Beach & My heart

This photo shoot today is so close to my heart.
I feel like every shot captures something I greatly miss.
The Beach.

Whats hilarious about it, is we looked extremely out of place, in the Texas parking lot with our surfboard.
{ and even boogie board, ha ha }
but we still captured the vibe we were aiming for.



Today was a tough day, but I'm glad I powered through it and continued on with our scheduled photo shoot. My sweet model friends stole my heart by bringing me my favorite 2tart dessert and fresh homegrown tomatoes from their garden. 

Good friends, silly surfboard poses, Jack Johnson and hanging out on some random guys parked van... is sometimes exactly what the Dr ordered.

Hope you guys enjoy the new PPP coming to you Monday!
Stay tuned for times!
xoxoxoxoxo




Sneak Peek.






We only got 11 pieces shot today, before we got rained out.
Comical actually as we raced against the black cloud coming towards us.
It was pouring all around us... and we felt lucky enough to get even 11.

I have a super cute beachy batch of PPP that I am just dying to share..
So please God let the rain subside tomorrow...

Ill post these 11 tonight {prob in a couple hours.}.. stay tuned..

Oxy Angel Tubes...

I just posted one more of these oxy angel tubes { and i have some of this fabric left over for prob 2 more if you want one custom, just hollar }


And this one, I posted two more of today { but I am all out of this fabric entirely }


I will be making more of these oxy angel tubes in other fabrics as well.
Custom is always an option, if you have some awesome fabric on hand.

The first trimester of my pregnancy has been treating me so well, no morning sickness or anything.
but today, I have to say, this Mama is tired.

I think its because Italia tore every book off the shelf at the library this morning.
Places that are tidy quiet and in order don't mesh well with my spicy.

Have a great day!

New " Meme" tops

The story behind these adorable tops, my Pilate's instructor and friend asked me to "fix" up her daughters tank top. The tank top was super cute and made by her mom, who they call  "meme". I loved the open back concept, but wanted to add a PPP touch to it. I played with it a bit , added ruffles { of course , PPP signature .. i love my ruffles } and made it very patchy and ecclectic.

I loved the way it turned out so much, I asked her if she would mind if I added that style to my PPP collection. She was honored.  So a big thank you to Meme! This was my first prototype.. after many rough drafts. I gifted it to Italia... I like to keep my first prototypes  for sentimental reasons... especially with new patterns.

But the good news, is I am working on making many more of these, baby and adult version too... so stay locked into the PPP blog.. for updates on the "Meme" release!

Here are some pictures of Italia & McCoy before we headed out to target. { they dress themselves these days } and do a pretty fine job, I must say. The PPP runs deep in the blood... I think. Italia was suoer pumped about her new Meme top...
