My 3 year old, Gianna, was so excited to sit down and write her first letter to Santa! Of course I helped type the letter, but they were her words (well 90%). She loved every bit of it! Even the little pictures you can add to the letter! They really helped express what she was saying! We printed it, posted it on Facebook and even tweeted it! lol!
Now, we just have to mail it to Santa!
For every letter received, Macy's will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1,000,000. Help make wishes come true by writing your own letter to Santa!
There is no cost to you to write this letter. Try it out and let your kids have fun!
The uber-creative mom behind Lehla Shop is always thinking up something new! She does many custom items including tutu birthday outfits and superhero shirts with your child's initial. The superhero shirts were recently spotted on Tori Spellings littles Liam and Stella!!!
Our favorite from Lehla Shop is the Graffiti Shoes...look at Harper's pair!!!
Lisa personalized them with all of Harper's favorite things (mom sent a list to Lisa at Lehla Shop), sweets, Foofa from Yo Gabba Gabba, and all things girlie. I was so impressed when Harper's shoes arrived! Every centimeter of the shoes is painted with fun details in a cool graffiti fashion. She even included Harper's name!
Lehla Shop also has a big selection of holiday styles in onesies/tees.
As I said earlier, Lisa is always coming up with something new! Visit her blogs (yes that was with an s) here and here, and like Lehla Shop on FB too!

I was so excited when I was contacted by Sallisha of LaunchHer to be featured on their site! I had submitted my company just a few hours before, but she was contacting me because someone else had reached out to her and told her all about me! I was tickled pink at how much my special friend believed in me and my company! It was truly an honor to be featured!
I love the concept behind LaunchHer, a site that gives a boost to woman owned brands! Thank you Sallisha and Kara for all that you do for woman like me, everywhere!
The holiday season is upon us and it is high time i get my working butt in gear! It is time for me to make a serious commitment to getting my Etsy shop all set up and ready for each and every Holiday shopper out there!
So here is is…my pledge of commitment!
I, Lisa Hill of Lehla Shop, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!
I will continue to post about my progress, so make sure you come back to read all about it! Having my followers supporting me will definitely help me get my Etsy Holiday Boot Camp butt in gear!
