my new craze!!

I have to admit, I have a new addiction! I have started metal stamping and I can't quit! Today I stamped some vintage silverware, I will photograph those later. But for now, here are some of the stamped works. "All in the family" necklaces are available to custom order in the Etsy shop, as well as the other fun findings....enjoy!

Covered Bridge Festival 09

Every year, for the past 3, I set up in Mansfield for the Covered Bridge Festival. This show is huge and lasts 10 days! The weather this year was terrible nearly the entire time, but at least I was inside...dry...and warm. Of course, I forgot to take photos until the last day, so my booth looks a little sparse, but I thought I would share anyways.

the basics

One of the first things I started making was bib and burpcloth sets. After trying out a couple designs, tie and velcro, side closure or back, big or little. I came to what I believe is the perfect set for any newborn. The neck on the bib actually will fit into the toddler years, but when they begin to feed, I think a feeder bib works a whole lot better. I make my sets from super soft chenille and flannel usually. Lately, I have been trying to use up all the flannel and use strictly cottons. There is a much better fabric selection and of course, you can make clothes to match! :) I still stuggle with fun boy fabrics, but switching to cotton has allowed for some new prints. Finally!

Custom Orders

The last couple weeks I have been crazy busy sewing!! I had a home party and was trying to get a whole bunch of new items ready for that, and the custom orders the next week after. I wanted to show some of the orders going out, because I actually remembered to take pics before they went out! Hey, first time for everything, right?

The weather is finally warming up and it looks a little more promising that it is finally here to stay! I've been busy making a ton of fun new things, I just haven't shared them...its better than not making them at all right? Let's start with skirts, who doesn't love a fun skirt at any age?

New Year, New Items!!

Well, another year has come and gone and with that being said, I have decided to make one of my goals to introduce many new items. I need to spark my creativity, instead of just restocking. So, we will see where this goes, but for now I have some new barettes to show. These are some of the first that I have made, but I love how they turned out. These are made from wool felt and handstiched for a unique one of a kind look. I have listed these in my Etsy shop as a set, 2 sets actually. The one pic of Beatty is just to show hers in her hair, she always moves! I swear we have no good pics of that baby!
