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!

Have a BEEutiful Day!

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!

Have a BEEutiful day!
