It's been a very hectic last few days for me, but I FINALLY was able to finish most of my Spring collection for "Georgikids". I even had a trunk show yesterday afternoon in Jacksonville and was very happy with the turn out and the number of sales that were made. My sister-in-law was kind enough to host the party for me and we all had a lot of fun (the red wine and hor'dourves were great). I had a great deal of positive feedback on my Spring items and took quite a few orders. I would say that the "Feelin Crabby" collection was the crowd favorite. It turned out sooo cute. Blue/white striped seersucker fabric with red crabs embroidered all over (shorts,capris,pants,jumper) and matching white t-shirt with big red crab appliqued on front. Red/white gingham fabric also made into shorts or capris to match made this collection adorable. I was able to show off this group in addition to "Bunny Lane" which is a sweet a-line jumper in soft pink with a bunny and carrots appliqued to front and has matching pink pantaloons. Both the jumper and pantaloons have white bows tied on shoulders and bottom of legs. A matching boy "Bunny Lane" outfit consists of light blue/white gingham shorts(same fabric that is used on bunny applique on jumper),white t-shirt with bunny and carrot appliqued to front.
The "Gator Tales" collection was very popular as well with green/white striped seersucker fabric with little green alligators embroidered throughout. A matching white tee with a gator appliqued to front pulled this together with a fresh, Spring look. The "Very Cherry" group turned out really sweet also and drew a lot of attention. It includes an A-line top that buttons at shoulders made from the cutest fabric that is white with red cherries scattered all over and a touch of turqoise. Big red grosgrain ribbon sashes tie into bows on each side of top. Pants include choice of capris or shorts made from beautiful turqoise fabric with cuff at hemline made from cherry fabric that matches top. This outfit is sooo sweet and also includes a matching white tee with appliqued monogram letter out of the cherry fabric. Also very popular was the "Pink Lemonade" group which includes light pink/white gingham capris or shorts with big bows attached at hemline (bottom side) of ea. leg made from pink grosgrain ribbon with white polka dots. A white tee with pink/white gingham monogram is appliqued to front and on ea. shoulder there is a matching pink/white bow attached with streamers hanging slightly down front and back of shirt which finishes this outfit off very nicely (This was my 3 yr. old nieces favorite)and is so light and cool for this time of year and on through the summer months. "Dahlia Blooms" topped off the collections shown for girls and the "Pirates treasure" for the boys. Both of these also turned out very sweet and include shorts (or capris for the girls) made from very pretty fabric from Sandi Henderson's Farmers Market collection with gorgeous large pink dahlia blooms over shades of green and for the "Pirates Treasure" outfit, the fabric is a little retro/vintage in a teal blue with splashes of bright colors such as red, yellow, green and black with images of pint size pirates sailing for their treasure.

I am very happy to finally have the majority of the Spring collection finished and I think it all turned out very nice. I have had so many ideas running around in my head that I think I changed my mind on what I wanted some of these outfits to look like at least a dozen times. I will be working on finishing the "Polka Dot Party" for the girls and the "Monkey Business" and "lil Sea Creatures" groups for the boys in the next few days and posting them. I exchanged the "All Hands on Deck" from the boys group for the "Feelin Crabby", as I was going to include the latter collection in my Summer line, but decided to switch them. I think it will turn out to be better suited for each collection this way. I will be posting pictures and details of each outfit in these groups this evening for everyone to take a peek at. I truly hope everyone is as excited as I am with the way they all turned out.
