Ring Bearer Pillow

My bff from highschool is getting married in 22 days and when she showed me this and asked that I email the shop owner to see about changing the dimensions my response was NO. Why would I be so cruel you ask??? Because I wasn't about to let her purchase something I could easily make myself for about 1/2 the cost. So I was able to recreate her pillow to her dimensions and she gets an extra special treat in that it was handmade with love just for her. In all it took about 30 mins to make and I did it all with a smile on my face and love in my heart. I am so excited to share this special day with her and her future husband. Love you guys!!

PS ignore the picture quality, it is 9:30 pm and the sun has gone down and I just had to get this posted so she could see it!

Because Jess Loves Her Some Cupcakes

My BFF Jess loves her some cupcakes and she has done some awesome stuff for me and my kiddos so it was time to return the favor. I saw this and just had to make one for her. Mine of course is no where near as good as Susan B. Anderson's because she is a knitting Goddess, but I think it is pretty good for my first 3D item!

Thank you for all the things you have created for me Jess! I love ya like cheesecake, or like you love your cupcakes :D Can't wait to see you in 8 weeks 6 days!

Lady Bugs and Laughter

As promised I am back to show off the pajamas I made for the girls. They love to have things made for them unlike Ky Guy, he gives me the eye roll when I ask him if he wants me to make him something. Darn preteen boys! Anywho the girls LOVE their new jammies and can't wait for me to make them more. I have a few more pairs that are almost done and I will show those off soon too. The Fish will be getting some new pairs himself as he loves to sleep in just bottoms during the summer so his will be easy peasy. Lippy Lou was cracking me while I was trying to get pictures, she seemed to think I wanted to see every silly face she has ever thought up. This was the least "cheesy" of the group!

My BFF gave me the idea to buy matching shirts and add fabric from the bottoms material to make them even cuter. I think they turned out way better than I could have ever imagined and I scored at Old Navy finding shirts to match ALL the different materials I had! The headbands were made from two scraps of the cuff fabric and one scrap of the main fabric.

Cutest Little Headbands

I can across this tutorial on Ucreate today and fell in love and had to try it myself. I changed it up a little bit, because my bff gave me a complex about the elastic showing but they were super easy and super fun to make. My girls LOVE them!

Stay tuned because those headbands match their new jammies I made them, I will be showing those off here soon :D

Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk Special

For the ENTIRE month of July I am donating 100% of the proceeds from my Etsy shop to my walk. In order to participate in the Breast Cancer 3 Day events individuals are required to raise $2300.00 in donations. I decided that because the walk is so important to me I am going to donate all of July's profits to this wonderful event. Each person who makes a purchase will be given the chance to have the donation made in their name, or the name of a loved one that has battled the disease. Please feel free to contact me for more information in regards to the donations or the walk itself.
