Lil' Cowboy

I had a lot of fun making this one! Adrian (my 18 month old) and I were rockin' it to the Country music video station LOL. It's available in crib size and mini, and I'm working on getting a travel size finished up too. Very fun prints!

Strawberry Kiwi -- Crib Size

I have to say, this is my new favorite. I really love the colors. Moda just has the best fabrics!

Wednesday, April 23, 2008


I first saw this shop a while ago and fell in love with their cuffs. Today (while I was supposed to be working) I came across this little number in their shop. I love pink, but this pink is above all other pinks. It's so cute! It's listed as a pillbox, but I'm thinking it would make a perfect contact lens case. It will at least be more motivating to take them out at night rather than sleeping in them (yes, I got in trouble my optometrist) :)

Update 5/1/08
I'm a sucker for pretty, shiny, pink things so I bought it. It came the other day and it's so cute! I just wish I could afford the cuff that matches it. It works great as a contact case too, so long as I don't let my 18 month old have it. It's not made to hold liquid, so it will leak if it's not always upright. It's even got me in the habit of taking out my contacts at night. My optometrist will be so impressed I'm sure!

Jergens Natural Glow

It's that time of year again, time to get rid of the pasty white legs! I used to have enough time to soak up the sun and get a real tan, but those days are over. Although I've tanned in cancer beds a lot in the past, I'm not sure it's that great of an idea anymore. One of the salons in my area has a Mystic Tan booth, which really does a great job of giving an even natural looking tan, but last I checked the price was $15 a session.

Just yesterday I started using the Jergens Natural Glow. I've heard of several people using it and liking the results, so I decided to give it a shot. So far so good, although it says it's supposed to take up to a week to work, and after 2 applications I already see a difference. I'm hoping it doesn't get much darker. They make it in three different shades -- I'm using the medium. I'll post later to let you know how it goes!

UPDATE 4/24/2008

After 4 applications once a day, I'm still loving the results! It's definitely more noticeable now, but not streaky and not orange at all. Although I have learned to apply it at night because it has an unpleasant odor and I don't want to go to work stinky. It also came with a sample size face moisturizer, the results aren't as drastic, but I'm happy with it!

Strawberry Kiwi -- Mini Rag Quilt

I've been in a pink and brown mode for a while now and finally broke free! I love the way this one turned out. It's so fun and bright, it reminds me of spring. It's made with fabric by Moda (my favorites!) and the back is pink and white polka dotted minky.
This one is a mini size (about 24" X 24"). It's really nice for an on-the-go mom because it won't drag on the ground while being carried around or pushed in the stroller.
As always, it's all wrapped up and ready for gift giving!

First Time Feature!

This is the first time that I know of that one of my blankets has been featured in a treasury. I love these colors! Definitely worthy of a front page I'd say!

Gudonya Shampoo

I've been wanting to try this for a little while now, and it just arrived in the mail yesterday! I haven't had much time to experiment with it yet, but the smell is delicious! I even ordered the body wash just to smell like it all over. You can read more about their products at http://gudonyatoo.etsy.com/. I can't wait to run out of what I have so I can try a new scent!

Fairy Dust -- Mini Rag Quilt

This is a mini version of the Fairy Dust quilt available in my shop! This size is so great for traveling. It stays up off of the floor but still covers little toes.

Etsy Purchase

I've got lots of feedback on Etsy already, unfortunately it's not because I'm selling like a madman, but buying! I found this diaper/tote bag a little while ago and finally decided I had to have it! It's just as cute as the pictures, and it arrived at my doorstep in no time. I ordered on a Friday and it got to my house on Monday. I've never seen speedier shipping. I love the detail that went into it, the ribbon around the outside is my favorite. The inside is lined in pink with 3 separate pockets. It's probably not big enough for a newborn (since you need 20 diapers, a change of clothes, formula, etc.) but it's absolutely perfect for what I need!
She's got so many different designs to choose from, it was hard to decide! You can visit her shop at http://PinkLemonadeBags.etsy.com

I've had quite a few people ask if I can personalize their blanket. Although I don't have an embroidery machine as of yet, this is a very cute alternative! I'll be adding the option of having an appliqu├ęd initial added onto the bottom right corner of any of my quilts.

Yesterday afternoon I was browsing Etsy when I found the cutest thing ever! It's called a cocoon, and she sells them to photographers to take super cute baby pictures. You can check out her shop at http://olivestar7.etsy.com/ and her blog at http://www.martalocklearboutique.blogspot.com/.
