DIY Mermaid Clothes Pin Dolls

To celebrate the launch of our mermaid dresses, we’ve been crafting!  These clothes pin dolls and so fun and super easy!  This would make a fun activity for a Mermaid Birthday Party.


  • Wooden Peg People  (I picked some up at Michaels Craft)
  • Emroidery Floss (also purchased at Michaels
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Hot Glue
  • Thin Sharpie
  • Foam Craft paper


We started the project by painting the mermaid.  Afterwards we used a fine tip sharpie to draw the eyes and mouth.  We used hot clue to put the hair and mermaid sail on.  It was a quick and very easy project to do with our kids!

Taylor Joelle Mermaid Tutu Dresses hit the site this Monday (July 8th).

Brickyard Buffalo Guest Editor


I’ve been a huge fan of Brickyard Buffalo and am so thrilled to be their guest editor this week!  Brickyard Buffalo is an online pop up shop, where you can score some killer deals on clothing, accessories and home decor.  As guest editor, I have the opportunity to feature some brands that I love!

For you littles:

Being a children’s clothing brand,  I have gotten to know some other really awesome kid shops.  Here’s the brands I have included in this weeks feature:

Kidnits (cutest knit clothing and accessories).  We used their knit bunny and wicker bag in our most recent shoot.  Look how cute!


For the Brickyard Buffalo feature, they have discounted their adorable bonnet and cardigan.  These pieces pair so well with Piper and Finn’s leather high top booties, also on brickyard buffalo!


We’ve also included Baby Lit Books.   I had a several of these books when Cohen was a baby.  The illustrations are amazing, and I love all the titles offered.  They make the best baby gifts!  This week, you can snag them for only $6.99 each on Brickyard Buffalo.

Little Stocking Co has the best socks for your little ones!  They are offering their new spring anklet socks in darling colors.


Jonny and Tate makes adorable ties and bow ties!  One thing I love about them, is that they cover all the sizes.  It’s been so hard trying to find ties I love that work for my 10 and 12 year old boys.  These Jonny and Tate ties, fit perfectly!

Also on Brickyard Buffalo this week is our dusty blue swing dress!  This dress makes an amazing Easter dress.  Comfortable, twirly, and endless ways to style it!

For your Home:

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that Diane Robison, my mom, creates most of the surface patterns we use for our dresses.  The puppies we use on our dresses, also make adorable art.  Diane has provided some inexpensive digital downloads this week on Brickyard Buffalo.

Speaking of family, my brother and sister in law’s company is Flex Living.  They make quality workout wear, and also do booty bands.  This band is one of my favorite things.  I love doing home “booty” workouts with my flexliving band.  Flexliving is offering them at half off on Brickyard Buffalo, so now is the time to score one!


For You!

I am in love with my Brickyard Buffalo Cora Dress.  So simple and comfortable.  Plus, it’s one of my favorite colors.  I also picked out some darling items for Taylor.  She wore her pocket dress to church today, and absolutely loves the yellow striped sweater.  She says it’s super comfy!

We hope score some of these awesome goodies this week.  Check out our my IG  stories throughout the week as I give you a closer look at these items.

Another Great Puppy Birthday Party

I absolutely love seeing your puppy birthday parties!  Sarah Capp, owner of Five.Twenty.Nine Designs hosted the cutest party for her twin girls.

Here’s a look at this fun puppy party!


Created using the puppy party printables from Diane Robison Design on etsy.  Diane also can create custom prints/invites etc.. if needed.


Party Outfits:

Taylor Joelle Puppy Dresses of course!  How fun is it to have dresses that match your invites and decor?  We will be restocking the puppy tutu dresses in rust (with short sleeve this time) early March.  Swing dresses are available now.




This is where it gets so fun!  Each guest was able to “adopt a puppy”.  Look how many there are to choose from! Then they create a collar for their puppy using colorful beads, and can also decorate their own puppy carrying case.




Party Food!

The cupcakes are topped with these cute mini puppies from Amazon (same ones we used with our Valentines).

Yummy snacks to munch on included: puppy chow, pup corn and dog biscuits.



Such a perfect puppy party!  Thanks Sarah for letting us share!

Free Printable Valentines

We had a great time coming up with these valentines with Diane Robison.   Super easy, and totally fun!

I Pick You Valentine

We purchased the noses on amazon  I have also seen them at Oriental Trading Company

Printing on white card stock makes these feel sturdy, and helps hold up nose up.  We used double sided tap to make the nose stick.

Printables can be downloaded here:  nose valentines 3×5



Rainbow Valentines

Cohen has several girls in his class that love unicorns, so he requested a rainbow unicorn valentine.   Recognize the rainbow?  It’s the same rainbow that Diane Robison  created for our “rainbow unicorn dress” a couple years back.

You can get a 48 pack of these key chains for less than $11.  We purchased on Amazon

Printables can be downloaded here: magical valentines


And don’t forget about our puppy valentines!!  These will be a big hit.  The puppy figurines were less than $10 for 50.  They can be purchased from Amazon.

You can download the puppy valentines here: puppy valentines pink


Another Puppy Birthday Party!

We are so excited about featuring the puppy party that Arin Solange put together for her daughter! I just love her creativity.

My favorite thing is the puppy backdrop she put together.  Arin cut out puppies for an adorable backdrop that matches our Taylor Joelle puppy shirts.

Puppy Birthday Party

We are so happy to connect with Christina from @littleboholoves  on Instagram.  Christina threw the most fabulous puppy party, and she’s allowing us to share with you guys!  I haven’t posted all the pics from her party, so check out her instagram to see more.

The shirts her girls are wearing are Taylor Joelle Designs.  We are out of most of the shirts, but we will launching this same print in swing and tutu dresses!  These will be ready in January.

I’m obsessed with the color scheme of the party.  The “WOOF” balloons are my favorite.  You can purchase rose gold balloons from amazon.

I love how Christina used cut paper to recreate the dogs from the girls shirts.

And how fun and simple is this cake?  I love that tiny party hats she’s made for the small dog figurines.  Plus the girls can keep those cute cake toppers.


And what’s a puppy party without real live puppies!  How epic!  I would love to recreate this someday for Cohen’s birthday.


If you are planning a puppy party, keep Taylor Joelle in mind for the perfect puppy dresses!  We will also have a boy version of these tees (coming soon).

Teal for the Holidays

If you know me well, you know that I don’t always prefer the “traditional” holiday look.  That’s why I often replace teal for green in looks for Christmas.

Outfit 1:

Cardigan – Old Navy, Bow – Indy and Pippa, Tutu – Taylor Joelle Christmas Shirt – Taylor Joelle

Outfit 2:

Cardigan and hat – Old Navy, Bow – Indy and Pippa, Shoes – Freshly Picked, Tutu – Taylor Joelle, Plaid Shirt – Cat and Jack by Target


And a fun lifestyle shot with our favorite photographer Heather Telford 

Tees and skirts both available at Taylor Joelle.
