A "Whale" of a Shirt

I have a very loyal customer who has ordered custom shirts from me for years. She is always thinking of fun shirts for us to create for her kids on special occasions. They all share the same initials, so she prefers to use their initials instead of their names in personalizing the shirts. That really helps with the hand-me-down potential, too. This time, they were taking a fun family trip to Sea World and she wanted custom shirts for her boys. She chose a bright lime green shirt color so she could easily pick them out of the crowd, and not worry about the inevitable stains on a white shirt. The happy seersucker whale applique just screams "summer", don't you think? I just hope they didn't sit in the dreaded Splash Zone!

Baby Boy Sets

As of today I'm not taking any more orders through the summer. We have a packed schedule of travel and activities so I'll be out of pocket in June and July, but if you'd like to place an order for the fall and want to be at the top of the list when I return, go ahead and email me your request now.
This little set for Riley has a heartbreaking story to go along with it. I know everyone has seen the devastation that the tornado in Moore, OK caused a few weeks ago. One family lost everything in the tornado just as they were welcoming a precious baby boy into their family. They were in the hospital giving birth to their sweet baby, Riley, when the tornado ripped through town and demolished their home. They were so thankful to be safe, but mourned the loss of their house and all their possessions, and had nowhere to bring their new baby home to. The hospital allowed them to stay a few days longer while they made other living arrangements and gather clothing and baby supplies. I learned of their situation and felt compelled to make a special baby set for Riley, since all their baby shower gifts, newborn clothing and special nursery items were gone. Coincidentally, the mom just happened to be my clothing size, so I was able to purge my closet and share some items with her as well. Several other families have donated household items for the family, so I hope they are able to put their lives back together soon and concentrate on enjoying sweet baby Riley.
Here's a fun set for a sweet baby boy whose nursery theme is trucks. I never get tired of blue and brown for boys.
I'll be back soon with more posts, but won't be taking new orders until August. Have a great summer!
