She's Amazing!

My Little Miss made her official debut on November 27, 2010. She only had a three min. birthday since she was born at 11:57pm.
She is beautiful and amazing.
I could not have pictured a more perfect little girl.

I'm taking some time off to focus on my family.
 Thanks for all of your support!

Closing Up...

Hi all!

Just a note to let you know that I'll be closing the shop in the next couple of weeks in preparation for our Little Miss to come.

I'm not sure when I'll be re-opening so if you want anything for Christmas please let me know NOW!! Everything that is listed in the shop right now is made and ready for shipment!

I will be taking up to 10 custom orders before I close but only for these items...

Mini Wallets
Dream Slings
ONE Carrier Canopy

These custom orders are available on a first come first serve basis. Once the ten spots are full your kind of out of luck.

I want to thank you all for making this such a great year. It has been so fun to get to know you.

Thanks again,

For Little Miss

I just finished this for my Little Miss and I was too excited to not post it!

It still has all the great features of all my other Carrior Canopy's, but this one has an adorable mustard yellow velvet ruffle around it just for my sweet girl.

Here's hoping she likes mustard yellow as much as I do.

Couldn't help it

I couldn't help but share my little men in their Halloween costumes.

They were the cutest little lions I've ever seen.

The Spiced Pumpkin Collection

These little flowers are my new favorite!

Dainty enough to add just the right amount of feminine without being overwhelming.

I love how small they are. Each measuring only about 1 3/4". They look great alone or in a little cluster.

A little snap clip on the back makes them perfect for the babies that have both a lot or a little hair. No hair at all? Clip it to a headband for a cute little accent

Just a little somethin'

Today I decided it was time to sew something for me!

I took my Nikon Camera strap off when I first got my camera about three years ago because it was ugly I thought it lacked in the appearance department.

Today I made this!

I love ruffles (as if you couldn't tell by now)!! and I left these ones unfinished because...
it's mine and I like it that way.

I can't wait to actually put it to good use.

A new look

I have mentioned before that I'm ready for a change in the look of my shop and blog. My blog and Shop have been the same since I opened them. And since I am a sentimental fool I could not bring myself to change any of it, even though it was not my favorite to begin with. So Tonight I decided to just go ahead and do it!

I started with this...
I changed my Shop banner.

Old Banner:

New Banner:

Look for more new changes soon to come.
Changes not only to the look of my blog and Shop,
but more new fun Stuff in celebration!

The Dream Sling

Here it is...

The Dream Sling

I'm so excited to add this new ring sling to my shop!
I searched high and low and did a ton of research to prefect this design.

The sling is made of a single layer of fabric so that it is easy to use and very breathable for baby. Want a cordinating fabric on the inside? Just ask!

Tail can be worn down or tucked around your back and under baby.
The Dream Sling is great for babies and toddlers from 6lbs. to 35lbs. There are many different ways to wear it so that baby will never get board! (Baby pictured is five months old).

The gather along the back makes this sling fit right every time! Never will all the fabric bunch together or will you be messing around trying to get it to lay flat across your back. Just a great fit everytime.

Don't know how to use a ring sling? I'll send you a link to a wonderful site with all the do's and dont's after purchase and before your sling is shipped.

You can find this one in my shop today and look for more on Monday. There is only one other sling made with this fabric, it's mine. ;) The one pictured it made of an Amy Butler fabric that is now out of print. So if this is the one you want snatch consider this fair warning that it is the only one you will be able to get.

So...what do you think?

P.S. Thanks to Amanda and Leila for being such great models!!

Labor Day Sale!! One Day ONLY

Code and sale have now expired

I have not had a sale in so long.
So I was thinking, "It is a holiday and all why not have a sale?"

I'm offering FREE SHIPPING (in the US only) on all orders over $20.00 that are placed TODAY! 

Here's how it works.
All you have to do is type this code: SHIPMEFREE into the "message to seller" box when you check out on etsy and the shipping cost will be refunded to you.

I have do have a few things left from my Swiss Days adventure that I have not had a chance to post on etsy yet. So if you see something you like on this post and don't see it in my etsy shop you get first dibs! Just shoot me an email and I'll let you know right away if I still have that item. These items are first come first serve since a lot of them are made for discontinued fabric I'm not able to get anymore.

Enjoy your Holiday!

Sweet Success


I'm sure you know the feeling.
When you set a goal that you think is almost unreachable and then...
You DO IT!! You actually reach it!

So here it is.
All of it.
 And it's on its way to Swiss Days in less than two weeks!


Baby Shoes (yep, these are some newbies)

Changing sets

Running out of light. We had to resort to using the flash.

"The Crew"

Thanks for your help guys. We really had to do this one fast. I guess it's true the days are getting shorter. I was in denial for a while.

And thank goodness Grandpa's still have use clothespins. I forgot mine and had to borrow some of Grandpa's!

Sweet Little Bag

I've had this custom order since about a week before
I found out I was pregnant!

So yeah, sickness was not my friend with this one. Thank you so much J for being so great to work around my sick slowness.

J wanted a bag made out of a fabric that ment a lot to her. She sent me the nursing cover that she used for both of her children and asked me to make a little library bag for her and her kids to enjoy.

I used EVERY scrap of fabric I could get out of that little nursing cover and here is the end result.

Thanks again J! You are such a joy and so patient to work with. I hope this bag brings you many years more of great memories with your children.
