We are back!!!

I haven't quite finish restoring all of our products but most of them are there and the cart looks good. It is almost 4 a.m. so I better hit the hay because I will need to get back up in less than 3.5 hours to get dd off to school and finish adding the rest of our goodies. I will have to say that I think this was a blessing in disguise as I have changed the site up a bit. I gave a facelift and I really like how it turned out. Well I can't see straight any longer. LOL Checkout the Newly Designed Whimsical Lily Boutique

Until next update....

Aaaaarrrggghhhh! Our Website Crashed!!!

Yep the unthinkable has happened. I logged on this evening to find that our website crashed sometime over the last 24 hours. It really is upsetting to see this happen. I could cry right now but I don't have the time as I need to upload the site back. I hope to have us back on line by morning. I guess I will be pulling an all nighter to ensure that we are up and running again. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. Will be sure to post when our site is back up and running.

Stay tuned for further updates...

Hurray for Lily Wrap Baby Carriers!!!!

Today I wore one of our Lily Wrap Carriers that was made of unbleached cotton birdseye pique fabric and it was wonderful!! I had never used a wrap carrier before today for any length of time and I decided since I had to do some running around that I would go ahead and give it a try. I LOVE IT!!! It was a lot less stressful on my body than a ring sling would have been. My 5 month old, 26lbs little monster can get heavy quick but I was able to walk around with him in the wrap carrier for over an hour and half and I didn't feel a thing. Did I already mention that I love it!!! I am soo happy that I decided to go ahead and give this type of carrier a try. I guess I decided to try it out because my other two weren't as heavy as he is when they were his age. He is my biggest by far!!!

Here is an example of the Lily Wrap Baby Carrier except this one is made with unbleached 100% cotton muslin.

Stay tuned for more updates....

Didn't go as planned...

I am a little sad as I wanted to add my new stuff this weekend but it didn't go as planned. Between me trying to figure out how to make my shopping cart automatically open up when my domain name is punched in and my dh deciding that he wanted to go off and play with his buddies, that cut into my picture taking, description making and listing time. So I have to delay adding the new stuff a couple of days. I am really sad but what can I do right?? So here are some of the things I hope to add. Once they are added I will cross them off of my list. ;o)

* Add 3 Hemp Muslin Slings (1 Lily Tai, 1 Lily Pouch and 1 Lily Ring Sling) these are all natural in color. I hope to be able to offer them in various hand dyed colors but I am still working out the specifics on that. I have decided after talking with a friend that I will go ahead and offer the ring slings. I wasn't sure that I wanted to at first but I have decided I might as well offer a variety for those who like ring slings.

* 2 boutique sets

* 3 apron & chef's hat sets

* 3 nursing covers

* A cute set for mom ;o)

Wow after loking at that it sure will take me a few ays to add everything. LOL

Well stay tuned for updates...

Great gift for mom-to-be....

or any mommy for that matter!!! We have been working on some new goodies for us ladies and I happy to say that after much blood, sweat and tears.... Okay no blood really but much sweat and tears. I did cry after the first time my husband made a comment on my baby sling that I got when our oldest was 3 months about it looking like a quilt/ blanket. Needless to say that I have been using my "quilt/ blanket" for over 5 years on our 3 children... He even makes sure to have the sling in the car for me. LOL

Now I want to give a gift to those ladies who want to wear their babies but without the bulk and high price. I love my very first sling that I got oh those years ago and I still use it to this day but the colors left something to be desired and the price was a bit much. If you are anything like me you want to have alternatives for those times when you want to dress up and the sling doesn't quite match or you want the sling to be chic & stylish and it's not. I am finally able to say that I have enough experience wearing a baby carrier and seeing the benefits that babywearing has had on my own children that I designed a couple that even my husband enjoys. Now let's not get crazy, he won't wear it because it goes against his ego but he likes the look nonetheless. ;o)

Without further ado, I proud to announce the addition of our "Lily Tai" & "Lily Pouch" baby carriers. After people asking whenever I go out with our little ones and receiving many compliments, we are now offering baby carriers for those moms like myself who have to juggle more than one little one around. We have two designs that we are offering in stylish and attractive prints for mom plus for those little ones who like to be like mom and carry their "babies" around we have slings for them too.

Our "Lily Tai" Baby Carriers are inspired by the traditional Chinese Mei Tai (Asian Baby Carriers). I think these are my favorite slings to be totally honest with you. It is really helpful when you 5 month old wants to be held and your 2 year old wants you to get him some juice. Sound familiar to anyone???

Our "Lily Pouches" are simple and convenient. No straps or rings to mess with. Just put the sling over your shoulder and place the baby inside and you're good to go.

Stay tuned for updates on the stocking of these awesome baby carriers...

A lot is happenin...

over at Whimsical Lily Boutique! We will be adding some new goodies over the next couple of weeks. More bags, boutique sets, hairbows and imaginary play goodies. We will also be introducting our bath & body products and our women's clothing line as well. I am soo excited but exhausted at the same time. LOL Take a look at the new jewelry that we have recently added. I think my favorites are these amethyst and crystal birthstone dangle earrings.

I guess I am biased as purple is my favorite color. ;o) But the only birthstones that are represented in my household are emerald and ruby. My husband, 2 sons and myself are May babies and our daughter is a July baby. So even though there are 5 of us, we only account for two birthstone months.

More updates to come....

Check out our newest design...

We are soo happy how this set came out. Nope it's not your usual boutique set at all. This is more for playtime or imaginary play. Do you have alittle cook in the making. Do you want to get her a cute apron and chef's hat? Thanks to a customer who requested this cute set we will be adding the apron & chef's hat sets to our website. But here is the one that we just custom made for a little girl's 2nd birthday. Isn't it too cute??!!

Stay tuned for more updates....

Breast Cancer Awareness

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month we have decided to donate a portion of our website sales to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We have made some special goodies that we will donate 20% of sales from those and the rest of our items we will donate 10% of sales from them. We are doing our part to help further research to find a cure.

Here are a set of bows that I made for this great cause.

Stay tuned for more updates...
