My Oversized Burp Cloths Are Awesome...

I'm tooting my own Today I was spending time with friends. All of them had new babies. One of them I made this cheetah print gift set as a baby shower present. She just happened to have it there today. Her little lady was drooling all down my arm and I grabbed her burp cloth. It worked perfectly. Just the right size.

It covered my shoulder and the side of my arm where she was drooling! It was great to see all of that research had gone into the perfect burp cloth. It's a mandatory gift for new moms for me now!

Here are a couple of my others!

They're the perfect size since they can be used as a small changing pad when needed!

PS...for my blog readers I am offering $2 off each oversized burp cloth or Pampered Baby Gift Set until June 10th!!! Just mention you saw the special here. I don't have many in stock but if you email me I can make you a custom one from fabric you pick. But, without the custom price ;)
Discounted price $10.99 (normally $12.99 for 1 oversized burp cloth!!)

Tackle it Tuesday...the Dreaded toy box!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

If you want to tackle it too click here
This week it's the toy box. I actually just upgraded to a craft basket on I used to put fabric in it. But, I obviously outgrew it. Now my fabric is all organized by color on a shelving unit. The other was one of those fabric cubes. I do not recommend them for toys! It was pretty much shredded from the in and out of toys. My little guy always complained when it was clean up time because the sides would collapse. So, this worked out for the both of us ;) May not be very stylish in the family room. But, it serves it's purpose! My goal is to build an ottoman with storage and upholster it in beautiful fabric for his toys. It's on my list of things to do!

Anyway...I'm going to sort through all the McDonald's toys and various other toys that always end up in that basket. Tossing the broken, misfit toys and trash that my son feels resembles toys and puts in

All the toys dumped out. I was surprised he actually wanted to get rid of toys with me!

Oooh...did you see the vintage toy??? I found that at a garage sale and cleaned and lysoled it to looking new. It's a fisher price cash register toy with the pretend money. Little guy loves it! I used to play with the same one when I was little. I was watching my friends son and that was the first toy he went to. Maybe I need to start buying the dated toys that don't involve AA batteries!


I have a new Addiction...Greeting Cards

Introducing the new Get Carried Away Greeting Cards...
Aren't they yummy???
I was sitting there last night and had an urge to play with paper. So, Joe was watching a movie and I was at the dining room table making these cards. I was pumping them out. I would finish one and think ooohhh....I gotta make one like this and this and use this Joe kept saying are you finished yet. I think it was after 1am at that point! You know how you get on one of those crafty surges of energy. It's a shame to fall asleep and not get one more in ;)

These are the Oh Baby cards.

I thought it would be nice to have these in my shop. Since most of my items are geared toward baby shower & new mom gifts. Then a customer can pick out a card to send with the item. I could even add a special message inside the card from the gift giver. Then they have nothing else to worry about.

Some baby cards are so boring and in the traditional "baby" colors. But, I think these are unique and perfect for the occasion. I'll be listing them soon.

Couple questions from a buyers point of view...

How much do you think I should charge for one?

Should I sell them as a set?

Would you want a mix of different greeting cards in a set (Themes ie birthday, anniversary, baby)?

One more Trio...Tropical Get Away Burp Cloth Trio Gift Set

I was actually productive before 10 am!!! ;)
I just finished this set. I think it turned out really cute. There is one solid hot pink, one hibiscus print, and one that I quilted with both fabrics. I was wanting to make one extra special.
I also have a matching diaper and wipe clutch and oversized burp cloth in the same fabric. Apparently I like the fabric ;)
A picture of them folded in half. I really like this size. Plus they are so soft that if you are out and worried about your clothes. You can throw one of these over your shoulder for baby to rest on it snugly.
These remind me of little swiss rolls. The cakes. Maybe I should give them a better product line name.

We had a family night for the holiday weekend. Went to watch the Florence Freedoms play ball in Northern Kentucky. Joe knew a guy in the line up. The night was perfect for a baseball game. 85 degrees, a little breeze, and no mosquitoes! Have a great weekend!

Aren't these adorable?? New Picnic in the Park Burp Cloth Trio

Don't you just love summer picnics? I was torn between calling these picnic in the park or summer barbecue. Which is better? I love to sell sets. Gives the customer a chance to have something coordinated and save on shipping.
Perfect for a boy or a girl. There is one in red baby corduroy, black & white gingham, and red & white gingham. All are lined in a soft fleece. Feels good on babies face. These would be perfect with my diaper bag in my shop...
I haven't decided whether to ship them like this or flat. Probably flat to save on shipping. But, it would look cute to arrive in the little bundle.
I'll be making more of these. Love to match of fabric. I just organized my fabric closet. Now all colors are organized separately. I think I am going to do a pink set next.
Will be listed at $17.00

On a side note. Thought this quiz was pretty fun. I apparently do not have an I am from Washington State though. But, I reside in Ohio now. So, I guess it's a mix of the two. Take the quiz and comment on what it said for you.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The West


The South

North Central

The Inland North

  4. When I was a Senior in college I went to Jamaica for spring break by myself!!! My friend canceled last minute for our trip to Florida. So, I picked up a phone and got a travel agent to make my spring break happen within 24hrs. She was so nervous and kept saying this is all inclusive you do not need to leave the property! LOL. It was the best experience of my life. Besides having my son.

Material Girl Clutch Style Diaper & Wipes Holder (LOVE IT!)

Material Girl
Reminds me of the dress Madonna was wearing in the video down to the bow. I can remember watching the video when I was a little and wish I had that dress. Wear would I have worn it is the question??? That would have made for a serious dress up outfit.

I love this fabric. I actually bought it while at home in Washington last summer. If I had enough I would make sheets out of it. So, silky and soft.
This could be used for on the go or a night out on the town without baby. I have a feeling this one will sell fast.

Retro Flowers Diaper Bag and One Overly Satisfied Customer!

Isn't it cute?????
Time has flown since my last post! I just designed this bag for my friend. Her face when it was done was She must have said at least 3 or 4 times during lunch how much she loved her new bag. She even switched everything over from her old diaper bag during lunch.

She picked this fabric out of tons of my samples. I had this bag pictured when I bought the fabric way back when. She was the perfect customer for it! She loves that she won't see anyone else carrying around the same bag.

Gotta love the orange lining! A little risky yes...but the bag wouldn't be complete without it!
