New Onesie Design

I love all things nautical! I can't pass up a good nautical theme. So I have been toying with the idea that my daughter will be a "pretty pirate" for Halloween. I wanted to make her costume this year since she will only be 10 months old, and I don't feel the need to buy an expensive costume she will never wear again. Plus I love all things handmade too! This is an old blue striped onesie I kept from my oldest son, and I re-purposed it for this new onesie. I used vintage linen fabric with a white anchor print, some cheap lace, and I made a bow from wool felt. And of course I attached a nautical button to finish the look! Next to make a nautical headband!

My New Shop Stamp

I had a custom stamp made from a store called Tickled Pink Paper & Ink. I love it! I bought the stamp so I could get my packaging organized for my retail sales. The stamp was very reasonably priced for custom and it was shipped super fast. It came gift wrapped with a gift of a few cards. Super sweet! Check it out!

My Daughter's New Shoes

I purchased these delightful shoes from another etsy store called Handmade Therapy. Lets just say I wish these were made in adult sizes. The fabric is gorgeous and they are lined with ultra soft fleece with leather soles. They also have an ankle elastic so they stay on... Just Fabulous and they make the most precious baby gifts.

New Fall Inventory

I have been working really hard over the past few weeks creating and making new products for my online store. I am trying to make most of my hair accessories work double duty. Meaning, you can wear the hair accessory as a hair clip or attach it to an interchangeable headband. Check out the pics and feel free to let me know what you think. Any criticism is good as it allows
me to keep perfecting!
