christmas 2015

Christmas season is once again upon us, and the 2000 tutus shop is officially open for business!  We will be taking Christmas order from December 5th - 15th.  Anything order by the 15th is guaranteed to be delivered by Christmas.

As you may have noticed, our shop has been somewhat on the down-low this calender year.  Between heart surgeries, a college graduation, internships (here and abroad), a destination wedding, competitive seasons and schedules in high school and beyond, and a wedding reception...there hasn't been much time for tutu making.  But Christmas is here, and the time for tutus and Christmas pjs and jewelry making is upon us!

In celebration of our reintegration into the Facebook and selling world, we are having a Christmas sale starting today and running for the next 10 days.  Here are just some highlights:

- all tutus are 25% off

- custom flannel pjs and Christmas tees are available for order one again

- we have a first look buy now auction preview happening

and lastly....due to the recent popularity of our custom charm necklaces, we are adding a new item to our jewelry page - custom charm bracelets!  We are so excited about these bracelets!  They will officially debut in February in honor of CHD (Congenital Heart Disease) Month and MK's heart repair anniversary! We are thrilled to have them available for Christmas, as well!!

We will post more details and feature items here on the blog and on Facebook as the sale goes on!  For now, happy shopping!!  And thank you for your support!

Our shop is open!!

Well, it's been a hot mess up in here since we arrived home from China with our sweet little Mary-Kate!  We've been wanting to roll out our Christmas sale, but we wanted to make sure we were prepared to do so!  Hopefully, we're in a holding pattern, health-wise, and we're happy to offer a few of our most popular items for sale as you're [hopefully] wrapping up your Christmas shopping.

MK was admitted to Riley Children's Hospital over Thanksgiving weekend with viral pneumonia.  

For Christmas orders, from today through Monday, December 15, we are taking orders for tutus, necklaces, hair bows and pajama pants or sets!  Our highly coveted "China Dolls" are back!  We have a fresh supply of material for those, and most of our other patterns are available in limited supply.  If you're interested in a matching double-fleece blanket, message us and we'll let you know what we have in stock.

China Dolls pajama set with appliqued tee and double-fleece blanket

Choose from China, Africa or heart charm and faith, hope or love.

One of my fave photos ever...Miss Caroline modeling the "Holly Jolly" tutu!
We have all holiday tutus available plus many of our everyday styles!

These snazzy little tie-tees are also available! No shop page or buttons for these.
If interested in one of these for your little guy, just message us!

Through December 15, any purchase of $50 or more SHIPS FREE!!  To make things simple on this shipping deal, just message us on our Facebook page or email us at, and we'll send you a PayPal invoice.  We can also take credit card payments, if preferred.

Thanks so much for continuing to support our adoption! We still have some expenses to pay off, and we are now incurring expenses for our little one's medical needs.  All proceeds from these sales will go toward these costs. We are so blessed to be part of Mary-Kate's story and to be her family, and we can't wait to see how God continues to write it!

p.s.  We excitedly anticipate the delivery of our t-shirts any day now!  We will ship or deliver them ASAP!

t-shirt update!

For those of you who have ordered a t-shirt, we are excited to announce that the official and final order will be sent to the printer tomorrow morning! This means that we will be sending your shirt orders your way by the end of next week! For those of you who didn't order a shirt you still have until tonight (12/3/2014) at 12:00am EST to let us know if you want one. You can email at, private message me personally on facebook (Mindy Martens), or just order regularly through the blog's shop page.  I will let everyone know that our email does not seem to be working quite right this afternoon, so if you do not receive a confirmation saying that I got your order, make sure you try another way of contacting us! Thanks so much for everyone's patience and support once again!!!

let's make a deal!

We have a great little update to share with you all.  Actually, several little updates.

First of all, we are just so grateful for those of you who have purchased t-shirts so far!

And necklaces and tutus and pjs and shirts and dresses and hair bows!!

Every penny spent brings us just a tad closer to little miss Mary-Kate.

But we have quite the way to go.  My mom will be blogging all the details on our fundraising to date and what we have in store before we can travel to China a little later today.  She might even share sweet little update in the form of a photo or two of our teeny little bit of a girl.

In the meantime, I'm lowering prices on our "changing the world" tees to $20!!  Our goal to sell at least 28 of each color and style!!  It's a great big goal, but it's also a great big message to share with a world that sometimes needs a little change.

So share with your friends!  Have them share with their friends! Adoption groups, school friends, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops!  And go in together on orders!  With each order of $100 or more (whether it be on shirts or any of the other fabulous items in our shop) we will throw in a free 2000 tutus tote bag!

Also, we will be creating an order form for our t-shirts for any of you out there willing to take orders over in your neck of the woods.  Contact me at to find out more information about helping us sell these shirts and meet our goal!

p.s.  If you've already purchased a "changing the world" tee, please know that we'll be contacting you about refunding your $5.

p.s.s  If you've already made a purchase of t-shirts that is $100 or more, your order will still qualify for our tote bag special and one will be included in your order.

p.s.s.s.  We'd love to lower the price on our "love makes the world go 'round" tees, but the two-sided printing raises our costs a bit.
