A Summer Day Headband for Me

So I'm just sitting around waiting for my husband to get home early so I can visit my dear friend in the hospital who just had a sweet little baby boy...but what to do. My younger son is napping and I decided to make myself a headband. Three tries later and I had this cute little thing that happens to match my outfit today. The decorative fabric bit encases the elastic, so it stays on, and is cute. I can hide the fabric bit on the bottom for a simpler look as well. Yay for a cute accessory!

Baby Goodies

Two dear friends each had their sweet little baby boy yesterday. What a surprise that they both came on the same day! Here are the goodies I made for them.

Announcing the Grand Opening of my Etsy Shop

I finally, finally, finally opened my etsy shop. Last year I set myself the goal to open up for business sometime this year. I hoped to do it earlier in the year, but due to a very full school year with homeschooling my oldest, I knew it would have to wait until summer. But I did it! Yay! I'm very excited and proud of myself. People are always telling me "Oh, you should sell those," when I make them gifts. I've never been inclined to because of the cost & time of sewing homemade. It's a labor of love. But...I guess I wondered if anyone out there in the big big world would like what I make. So here it goes. Wish me well.
