Candy Corn Shirt

Happy Halloween!

Peasant Dress

I've seen this dress pattern all over the custom boutique sites online and knew I wanted to try it. I ordered the pattern, labored over the fabric choices, and was so proud to get it finished. I made it specifically for Tatum, because she is still at my mercy for her clothing selection, and I just knew she was going to L-O-V-E it. Um, no. Too many "wrinkles" (ruffles) for my shorts-and-tee-shirt kind of girly, and she gave it a big thumbs down. I did actually force her to wear it one day and, after removing it from her body as soon as she got home, she said, "Can I never wear that dress again?" Regardless of my child's condescending attitude towards it, it's a super cute dress and it has found a new home with a more appreciative wearer.

These particular fabrics are more appropriate for fall, but I can envision lots of potential different color/pattern combinations for any holiday or season. Christmas orders are starting to roll in already, so let me know if you need one soon!

Birthday Girl

October is a big birthday month for us, and Tatum was first, celebrating the big FIVE! I won't wax nostalgic about how she is my baby, and how five is the age she will be when she starts school, and that I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday, so I'll just say we had lots of fun enjoying this little person. She had a Hello Kitty party with lots of friends and family, went to Build-a-Bear to pick out a new bear (she had to get a bear "because it's called Build-a-Bear!") and eat at Rainforest Cafe, which she requested because last October her big sister got to eat there for her birthday and get the cool Volcano dessert. This little girl adds so much enthusiasm and humor to our lives and we're glad God gave her to us. We love you, Tatum Verbatim!

Another Halloween Post

I've added another size to the canister family. This one is smaller, about 5" tall, compared to the original 7.5" size. Perfect for "boo-ing" your neighbors or as a fun Halloween teacher gift.

Short canister - $12
Tall canister - $15

Pumpkin shirts - $20

Name Pillows

A very dear friend ordered this pillow for a baby shower, made to match this bedding set. The rich colors and sophisticated patterns are a departure from your average crib bedding, and I love the statement it makes.

Another red and blue pillow, with a touch of baseball thrown in.

Football Fan

Can you tell which NFL team this little guy's daddy roots for?

How about now?

More Pillows

This pillow was ordered to match this bedding from Target. I love the bright colors mixed with the chocolate brown.

New Stuff!

Baby Boy Set

Here's another new applique design I've added (available in upper or lower case).

Please note: Due to a large backlog of pending orders and the fact that October is crazy busy at our house (soccer, volleyball, piano, 2 birthday parties to organize and execute, 4th grade musical, Halloween) I need to extend my turnaround time on orders to 3-4 weeks. I know that's inconvenient and I hate to take so long, but my only other option is to suspend orders indefinitely until I'm caught up. I realize that probably eliminates Halloween items from being ready in time, but being a mom is my first (and favorite) job and I need to keep my family as my top priority. If I've already corresponded with you (or visited with you in Target!), your items will be ready when I promised, but new orders will take 3-4 weeks. Thanks so much for your understanding!

On a related note, has anyone ever attempted these before? Any helpful tips would be appreciated!

Monogrammed Diaper Cover

This is a new item I've added recently. These are so versatile and a must for every baby girl. They come in sizes 1 through 4 and run the same as diaper size. Your choice of monogram style.

A Halloween Post

These are a few Halloween items I've been working on. I hope to post a few more things in the next few days. I'm also going to iron the spider shirt and repost it because it looks like it's been on the floor of the laundry room for a week (it hasn't). These shirts will look way cuter on their wearers, paired with black and white striped leggings and an orange tutu, or orange ruffled capri pants. My models weren't available when I was ready to post these, so I'll add them later too.
Happy Fall!
