a-doh-able ♥

I have a 4 year old who is going on a strong two year love for all things play dough. It's her first year of preschool, play doh valentines were inevitable. These are so sweet and have been such a hit in the shop this year! I included fun, bright colorful stripes to coordinate with the popular play doh colors and a sweet personalized signature on the bottom.

 HOORAY! Well, after years of thinking about "one day" launching our own e-commerce site . . . I finally actually did. Over the past few years I've let a lot of this slide down the priority list because of four sweet, little girls (and one handsome guy) that pretty much need me at 120%. I absolutely love and cherish my time with my family and I've realized that they really do grow up so fast and time is incredibly short. These are the days - and I don't want to miss them! I don't want to put myself in a position where I'm too...
