Christmas Is Coming

I have recently added some new items in my shop. If you get a chance, I would love for you to check them out. One item I would like to highlight is my Christmas Blanket, Burpbee, and Bodysuit Set. I loved the green and red circles fabric when I bought it at a quilt shop over the summer and knew that it would make something great for the holidays. The holidays aren't quite here yet, but it won't be long!! This Christmas set will be perfect for all those holiday parties and pictures. I wish I had a baby to put these on to show you how cute it would be, but my next grandbaby isn't due until October 24th. I'll have to make one for Baby McBee and then take pictures to show you maybe next month!!

Have a BEEutiful Day!!

Alexander's First Birthday Party

Yesterday my grandson, Alexander, had his first birthday party. I can't believe he is a year old! It seems like he came home from the hospital only a couple of months ago. He has grown so much. He just started taking his first steps on September 4th. His party turned out great. It was small, but we had great company and great food. I made him his birthday shirt and his birthday cake - Elmo. I think I could have done a better job with the icing dots, but everyone else loved it. For his birthday gift, I made him his own towel set. Can you believe that he didn't have his own yet??!! I also made him a personalized wall hanging. I think that it turned out really cute and it matches his room! Maybe I'll put those up for sale in my store??!!

Jungle Baby Blanket Set

My Jungle Baby Minkee Baby Blanket, Burpbee, and Bodysuit Set has been added to my store. I think it is really cute! The blanket has the most adorable baby jungle animals fabric - elephants, lions, zebras, giraffes, and ostriches - sewn together with the softest yellow dot minkee and jumbo brown rick rack around the edges. The burp cloth has the same jungle fabric with a yellow terry cloth to absorb all those spills. The matching bodysuit has an elephant applique on the front. I just love it. Let me know what you think!

My Ft. Lauderdale Vacation

Guess what??!! Both of my items that were listed in the treasuries I wrote about in my last blog have sold!!! I am so excited and proud of myself. Thank you so much to everyone who loves me!!!

So I finally went on vacation -- to Ft Lauderdale, FL. I think it feels strange going on "vacation" to Fort Lauderdale, considering I lived there for almost 30 years. It's been about 8 years since I moved away, but it was great being able to spend some time there again. I love the weather, the beaches, the restaurants.... My daughter, Tracy, and her family stayed at a beautiful resort called the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. They had a lazy river, a walk in pool, and it was on the beach. Amazing. They were there on a family vacation, but I stayed with my sister, Kelly and her husband Dale. We met up for Angi's (my daughter-in-law) baby shower. She and my son, Rob, are due at the end of October. I can hardly wait. Of course I went overboard on their gifts for the shower (even after we already got them their travel system), and among those gifts were some handmade ones (of course!). I made the cutest surfboard set, a jungle set, and one with really cute sea animals on it created by Wyland. Since I made chocolate favors for the shower, had to work and pack, I totally forgot to take pictures of all of these cute things I made. I can't believe it! I would have loved to show you. Hopefully I will remember to take some next time I get down there, which probably won't be until October.

Meanwhile, I am making some new items for my store. I have to freshen it up a bit since I seem to be so popular lately! Hopefully my good stroke will last! Also, keep in tune for some holiday items soon to come!!

Here are some pictures of my vacation. Enjoy!

Etsy Treasuries

I've been on Etsy for some time now, but I've never been in a treasury. Now over the last couple of weeks I made it into not one, but two, treasuries! Isn't that crazy??!! I am so excited - maybe I'll even make the front page. Here are the items, with their links, that made it into the treasuries. And don't forget to check out everyone else's stuff. They are all really cute!!

Oh My Darlin'

I made the most darling outfit for my granddaughter, Allie. She is now 2 1/2 - I can't believe how big she is now. She looks so beautiful in this outfit that I had to share it with you!! I loved the yoyo flower on the top so much that I added one on to the headband that I made to go with the outfit. Maybe I should make a matching outfit for her doll too??!!

Hope you like it!

Have a BEEutiful Day!!

Beach Towels

My new beach towels are now available!! I think that they are the cutest things ever! The ones I've made so far are for my grandchildren. The towels I use are actually bath sheets, which are much bigger than regular bath towels. They are super soft and comfy, and perfect for babies, children, teenagers and adults to use by the pool, the beach or even a lake. The designs I have made so far are flip flops and sea life, but there are endless possibilities!! If there is something different you would like, convo me on etsy or email me and we can create a one of a kind, unique towel for you. Wouldn't you love to have the BEST towel at your next pool party??!!
