Art matters!! Don’t we all agree!?
V & K usually spend their days after school with extra curricular activities as many other fortunate children do, but it’s those moments when they find tools and objects around the house to express their creativity that I adore.
Yes, twins enjoy individual things but don’t forget there are many things to enjoy together. We are all born creative beings. Some of us are able to express it at an early age while others need to explore themselves and find their creative purpose.
Let’s continue to share our creative commonalities while encouraging each other on the sidelines during our individual time to shine.
– sharing “she persisted” a level of reading appropriate for beginning mini entrepreneurs, along with a sneak peek moment of Book 3 of the TwinDollicious stories …..below

It’s officially Spring and the sun came along with it!
We’re ready for all of the spring colors and flowers that are in season for kids fashion & styles. V & K cannot wait to wear the new patchy tutus that come in their favorite color pink and of course that special staple color black. These tutus were hand designed by them and have worked their way into the next adventures of TwinDolliciius sisters Violet and Kelly’s wardrobe. You’ll be able to read about their next adventure ” Summer camp here we come” this fall…. but for NOW let’s enjoy some of our favorite Spring Fashion Inspiration .

Well, we survived a Presidents’ Day week with 80% staycationing (new word)! This February has flown by so fast that we couldn’t clearly plan a family vacation, so we decided to stay local to work a bit and have fun while doing so.
V & K enjoyed a movie premiere screening of Rock Dog; a must see movie about one of our favorite things MUSIC, and life of an artist. If it’s exposure to freedom of art, creation and a reason to think outside of the box we’re in!
If you haven’t been to the toy fair at NYC Javits Center yet you must check it out! There are so many ideas for learning, gifts and teaching lessons on encouraging entrepreneurship to children with one visit. It usually runs during the February season of NY Fashion. The girls enjoyed some goodies and decided to coordinate a full video on them. So much fun!

We saved our last great adventure of this staycation for our friends meet at Liberty Science center. We had the privilege of attending the new exhibit of Myth Busters. These girls love tech and science with a splash of fashion. As you can see here our Mom trends friends /event in style with some buddies. http://www.lsc.org
Visit Our favorite scientific corners such as the Myth Busters, infinity climber, table top chaos and how fast can you change into a super hero… you’ll love it!
We’re hosting a fun giveaway of 4 tickets to check out all of the amazing exhibits Liberty science center has to offer.

100 days of school down in NYC …15 more weeks until Summer Vacation!
Hello 2017!!! Let’s do this!
Wow have the last few weeks been something to talk about or what? With that; we’re moving forward to new beginnings and opening doors to new opportunities for V & K.
Looking back at 2016 up to now the girls have began to show their differences in interests, style and friendships. I have not read the expert guide on raising twins but Personalities are changing along with responsibilities in the girls relationship. Thanks! Just when I thought I had it figured out.
For those of you who may not know what this means; it’s like a twin shift.
This happens when twins begin to do things that are out of character for themselves but more of the things that their twin would do. It also happens with food, style and likes.
If you’re a parent of multiples or are a multiple……ask yourself did you always find yourself/or your child’s behavior carefree, or super organized and then began to change?
V & K’s current shift has been a confidence booster surprise! Suddenly someone (we won’t reveal which one…can you guess who?) is interested in singing, dancing, camera time and class participation. While the other remains confident but with a bit of cautiousness. It isn’t cautious behavior to be alarmed of but perhaps less carefree. In a way as to let one twin shine while she takes a step aside for her sister to experience some fun.
May they always have each others back!
***coming soon: lots of videos and blog design updates
6th birthday celebration at one of our new favorite places https://www.kalahariresorts.com https://www.kalahariresorts.com/pennsylvania?utm_source=ReachLocalPPC&utm_medium=Philly&utm_campaign=ReachLocalPPPCPhilly&scid=3279739&cid=2189277&tc=17020110462220303&rl_key=e54efbd2ba2213e8d356559a44a95508&kw=7058177:17759&pub_cr_id=151631780295&dynamic_proxy=0&primary_serv=www.kalahariresorts.com&rl_track_landing_pages=1&rl_retarget_none=64_295824_1
What are distractions? Those things or situations that occur which keep us from completing our to do list. Or how about that life long plan you have TO TRY something new, start a new journey or take a trip that seems to be stopped by someone special or a job.
Can it be that We never take the time to acknowledge that these slight interruptions are in fact distractions. As an adult perhaps we forget but I’m pretty sure children all a cross the world are reminded when gazing offi n class that they’re being distracted….( It’s a number 1 teacher’s favorite). Any how with sticking to the topic; I’d like to share 3 lessons I’ve learned to help me understand and handle deadlines and surprise happening or behaviors in order to get the job done.
We recently shared our grandest addition which will arrive this summer. It hit me with such shock in the middle of a busy work schedule which included appearances, deadlines and freelance work with others, yet took me back to a place that I was in 6 years ago. A place where doubt had set in on the chance of ever having children and then V&K were here! BUT remember the dying desperation, asking and prayin… Those days and nights of long talks were not falling on deaf ears. The response was given yet when lease expected.
1. That number one rule to remember what you have asked for over and over again will receive a response; and usually after you’ve shown and proven that you can handle it. (Note: maybe a time when you’re overwhelmed).
2. Creating a deadline for yourself regarding work for others and yourselves is key. BUT the topper is allowing yourself enough time with your tasks that in between your work for others you can take a breather to visit your project. This allows you to remember your creative goals as well.
3. Take an organizational brake to manage your thoughts and connect with your team. It can be a partner, mentor, spouse or whom ever provides tha creative energy that allows you to help each other grow.
I’d like to share some of the creative outlets we’ve gained by following rule number 1. This barn yard entry way to embrace the upcoming nursery.
Along with a collaborative shoot to embrace our TwinDollicious message of sibling love with new Spring/Summer release design of double the hearts. Perhaps with an infant design surprise.
Remember to take minute to think when hit with those small signs of distractions (ex:the black cat crossing)

As much a sweeping like to say that the past few weeks have been wake up, drink coffee (for mom), work on the beach it hasn’t. Thankfully we do have a good amount of weeks left for our “Beach Please” mode. But, this Summer has been marked as our reach out and touch more TwinDollicious friends Summer!
Our team goals are to be apart of our community, NOT to attend camp 😉😉 and reach families that enjoy sibling love, friendship and joy of fashionable keepsake clothing like our own.

Halloween, A holiday celebrated by all! V & K enjoyed their first school Halloween celebration. All classes participated in the school’s Halloween Parade fully costumed with creativity. In costumes from 7 am – 8:30pm was a success but not so easy fitting into car seats, closing jackets with double the petti skirt tutus, but we’re believing that beauty is pain. The girls loved every minute of it and I needed a nap by 5pm.
They were Mia Fairies with zapper handmade bracelets and hair accessories. Amongst a slew of other amazing costumes. The girls admired the brother /sister Dunkin Donuts costumes which raised big ideas for next years’ costume.
Trick O’ treating and Halloween candy oh my! We joined a kiddie bunch and trooped around the neighborhood shouting trick o treat. But the most exciting part was answering the door for trick o treat-ers, handing out candy, and looking at others costumes. They even emptied their baskets into the bigger baskets for the other children. Happy Halloween Fun! 🎃🎃
