We were just at Disney and couldn't fit everything we wanted in our suitcase. Lucky for us Disney has put the most popular items online!! Go to www.disneyparks.com/store to find everything you wanted but didn't get!
You know by now how "into" the upcycled craze I am. Once your little girl (or boy!) puts on an upcycled dress or skirt there's no going back. They are about as comfortable and cute as you can get. We just got back from Disney and while there I think Anna wore an upcycled outfit at least once a day (lilblueboo, mudpuddlz, okeedokeekids, sorenlorensendesign and the list goes on!) One thing we took that we adored were upcycled shorts (Mickey & Minnie) from www.bebegear.etsy.com. ADORABLE!! These are so cute and comfy I must get more!! She's also doing cute spaghetti strap dresses and super fun rompers (if you can get your hands on one!) Get there quick, suddenly they are going like wildfire! (Find her on Facebook, probably could get a custom romper if you asked real nice --- like we do!!)
Oh, BTW, check out our shoes on the model above (www.jlperillo.etsy.com)
Check out www.chimiandchanga.etsy.com for awesome upcycled dresses! But now she is offering the ultimate package!! A custom waldorf doll (YES-Custom Waldorf) with dress for your little girl and a matching dress for the doll!! Wow!! And all for the price of about 1 waldorf doll elsewhere!! Check it out:

Looks like I'm going to have to get Anna an Ipad at some point (maybe Christmas?) She has one in her classroom and it's sooooo much easier for her to use. She has trouble using a mouse and they are looking into adaptive equipment to help her there. But with the Ipad, no adaptive equipment needed!
So when I brought my new ipad home last week, Anna picked it up, turned it on, slid to unlock, zipped her finger across the screen and opened an app (that I had dl'd for her) all on her own. Wow, great computer and ever better for special needs!!
So look on craigslist soon for items I will be selling to fund Anna's ipad for xmas campaign! If you haven't seen one yet, get yourself to the apple store to try it out. I got the 3G one and it is AWESOME!!
