Update on Christmas PJ's 2

Last night I got the following email from my cousin regarding the PJ's I made her kids for Christmas...warm fuzzies all over - let me tell you!

"I have been meaning to email you and tell you how much the kids LOVE the PJ's you and Jon made for Christmas. I need to capture a picture some night when all 3 have them on, they are fabulous!! R hollers if for some reason they're not in his drawer (laundry perhaps?). "

Can't wait to get those pictures!

Baby Gifts!

I recently found out that my sister-in-law is pregnant, and my first thought was "SWEET! I can make some baby gifts!" So I paid special attention to blog posts that boasted baby gift ideas and I came across these adorable burp clothes, bibs and blocks from Homemade by Jill!
So Thanks to Jill for the great idea and tutorials! And Congratulations to soon-to-be parents (again) Adriel and Lori and big brother Jayson!

Etsy Favorites...

I wanted to introduction you all to a few Etsy sellers that are my favorites! CocosGreenhouse is one of my favorite jewelry sellers on Etsy. I order the most wonderful pair of pearl dangly earrings that are one of my go-to pairs when I'm getting dressed for any occasion. Candice n Candies Art has the most amazing ROUND business/calling cards. I am totally lusting after some of these! Constant Dreamer has beautiful prints, in fun designs, lots of animals that would be perfect in classrooms or children's bedrooms. I also think they would be great in my bathroom :-) Under My Umbrella has gorgeous wooden nativity scenes that I am drooling over, both the design and the price!


I'm not so good at this blogging bit! Couple of quick updates:

I finished the Christmas pjs and they were well received, with the exception of the 5 year old, R took one look that them, said thanks cuz his mom made him and went back to playing with the toys he'd already opened. O had to try her pants on right away (under her dress in the living room at my brothers house). Their mom was quite impressed with the pjs and I'm sure they are getting lots of use.

My mom purchased several glasses cases from me for her sisters and my girl cousins, which they loved.

I didn't finish all of my mittens, but gave 2 pairs of mittens, 1 pair of wrist warmers and 4 coffee cozies. I let my sister pick out her coffee cozy and then she helped me pick out the others. They were also loved and my cousin suggested that he husband sell them with his coffee wholesale stuff and coffee beans :-)

I still haven't sold anything on Etsy, but my stuff is listed and I created a new banner last week. I finally found an easier way to do it and it turned out ok. It's not great and I'll keep working on it, but it's better than the mis-sized one that was there previously.
