What Brings You JOY?

Have you ever wondered what it is in life that brings you joy? Is it the amazing man you may have married? The child/children you have brought into this world? Your work? Or maybe you have a pet project you have been diligently working on that you know will eventually bring joy to you someday.

For me it's all of the above!  Recently, I realized that I needed to stop and take a look around me.   To see what I had right in front of me.  I married my soulmate and my hero.  I gave birth to the most amazing little girl, born 7-7-07, (the luckiest day there could ever be).  I work at a church where I can proudly say I have made some very good friends, whom, I can also admit, I consider to be family.  My work in progress...well that would be my home-based, online company I started, Lehla Shop.  Everyday, I challenge myself to try new things, perfect items and strive to make good products I know will put a smile on a child's face.  All of these things were staring right at me. I just needed to realize it.

I can reflect back on times when my life wasn't exactly "joyous".  My first marriage didn't quite work.  I didn't have too many people I could honestly call "friends".  And I worked a full time job, clocking in at least 9 hours a day.  Everything was so faced paced (that's NJ for ya!).

So, I got a divorce, met my new husband, had my daughter, quite my job and moved to Louisiana!  Whew! 

Now I work part-time at the church and at home for my shop.  I am constantly online trying to publicize Lehla Shop as much as possible.  My goal is to one day have my products on the shelves of other stores.  And who knows...maybe even own my own "brick and mortar" shop and have my products on my OWN shelves!  That would be ULTIMATE joy!

then make it happen

I want my daughter to grow up and know that dreams can come true, if you work hard enough to make them happen.  More joy.

"Your dreams are never silly; depend on them to guide you" chinese fortune

So with that said, I can tell you that I am blessed for the joy that already surrounds me.  Am I lucky?  Maybe...but I wouldn't trade anything!

Have you stopped to take a look at your life?  Have you started thinking what it is that brings you joy?

Life + Love + Happiness = Joy

THE one & only...Silhouette Craft Cutter!

Ok, you have all heard about it!  You are all wanting one! I can honestly tell you I am WANTING one!  Well, just recently I was informed about some incredible websites that are hosting Silhouette giveaways.  Yes, I said GIVEAWAYS! 

Here is some information about the Silhouette and what everyone is saying!  

The Silhouette SD

This incredible little machine is sleek and compact.

You can cut vinyl

Huge assortment of paper cut outs

The Silhouette hooks up to your computer and cuts out the shapes/letters that you tell it to. It's THAT easy! So all you need is your Silhouette machine, your computer, thecords and your imagination! You can even use an SD card and take your Silhouette wherever you go!

It comes with a nice library of shape and cutout files to get you started! And, what I LOVE is, you can use all of the letter fonts (True Type) from your own computer, to design your own cut outs. Hello!!! I can choose ANY font I want? Do you know how many FREE fonts there are out there?!! You can even create your own shapes and cutouts for your projects!!--I LOVE that!

No cartridges to buy!

They do have an online image store, where you can browse and purchase from a huge assortment of different shapes, letters, phrases, cutouts, etc......and upload them instantly to your computer. The images are just $.99 each and they offer membership plans and options for bulk-buying where they can cost even less than this. Each week, they also feature a free download on their site that you can add to your library. Love those freebies!

Love all of the ideas you can get over at the SILHOUETTE blog!

They even have a FREE DOWNLOAD OF THE WEEK feature!

Life with the Lebeda's Review

Another proven winner!  Lehla Shop is making moms & kids alike the happiest they could be with our cute handmade products!  Check out this recent review by Jennifer from "Life with the Lebedas" blog!  Thank you so much for the wonderful review! 


Lehla Shop Custom Tutu Birthday Outfit Review 

July 28, 2010

Lehla Shop specializes in Couture style tutus and Unique Children's items. Every Lehla Shop
Lehla's Shop tutu is hand crafted and created as a unique piece of art. 

Tutu styles include Traditional, Knotty Girl, Pocket and Petti-tu tutus! In addition to tutus, you can find custom birthday outfits, burpies, bow & headband holders, messy blooms and key fobs!

A favorite at Lehla's Shop is their Super You superhero shirts! As seen on "Tori & Dean, Home Sweet Hollywood!" & the Cover of Star Magazine!

Lehla Shop's  newest addition includes custom clothing and Graffiti Sneakers! 
She is a creator at heart and loves challenging herself to constantly create new items for your sweet 'little bits'! She hopes you love what you see as much as she love making it all!

I'm a sucker for really cute boutiques and thats exactly what Lehla's Shop is! I knew I was expecting a review in the mail from her but was so excited when I opened the box to find this really cute outfit! 

I have a 3 year old that wears a tutu daily but my youngest daughter didn't have her own. She was so excited. You can see her picture above. She ran all over the backyard in the heat of the day because she was that excited! 

-My Take-
I love the bright colors she combined together! The flower that is connected to the tutu is actually a bow with an alligator clip attached. While my daughter was running around I left it on the tutu since she was more excited about the hat at that moment. The hat is a really cute addition and definitely a favorite! The skirt is of course my little girls favorite. My oldest tried it on and you would have thought she stole it away! Very cute! I love the frayed edges around the bow. It gives it that nice edgy look! The sewing is great and after having washed it I had no fraying on the stitching at all!  I honestly could not be more pleased with her design! 

Strongly recommend Lisa, the designer of
Lehla's Shop, for your next purchase!

Get a CUSTOM tutu made for your daughters next birthday!
You can customize the colors as well!
The entire outfit includes -
Party hat is made to match applique on shirt/onesie.
