Big Day!


Today Will is 5 months old!! Wahoo!...I can hardly believe how fast he is growing...and he is getting quite the little personality. :)


We got a new aloe plant...exciting...exciting!

...and in the studio I have been overwhelmed with so many ideas. I made lots of small baby blankets "Linkys,"(with hopes to sell). They have a super soft backside and a link in the corner so it doesn't fall out of the carseat or stroller.
Here they are all rolled up. I had so much fun using these modern designer fabrics I ordered from the fabric shoppe
..and my new favorite spring bag!! My mom gave me some new fat quarters she found on sale and these bright floral patterns seemed perfect for a new big bag to carry all the baby stuff I have to carry around now. I don't like to follow patterns; I just figured it out as I went...so there are lots of mistakes. I will be making lots more to figure out exactly how I want it to look.



Have a splendid day,

We are living in Clive, but it is basically Waukee. We bought a house over here almost a year ago. We love it! You should move back here when Thad is done!
I went to http://www.mylivesignature.com/ to do my signature. Let me know if you have any questions!!

Stephanie, I've been checking in our your blog for a couple months now, and I absolutely love hearing about your life! You are so talented and creative, and it's fun to see the world from your perspective.

P.S. Will is the sweetest, cutest little boy! You and Thad are so blessed.

Hey Steph! I love those little blankies! Where do you sell your stuff? I would totally buy one of those from you!

STEPHANIE said...

thank you everyone for your thoughtful comments...
Melissa-I have yet to start my online store, I will let you know when it is up and running. For now I am in the process of checking in with a few stores who carry handmade stuff and other baby specialty stores to see it there. But for an old friend anything you want I can sell directly to you :)
