Auction to Benefit the McRae Family

I am sure a lot of you have read about this sweet family that has had a heart breaking situation arise-cancer in their sweet daughter. You can read this families story here


I wanted to jump on board with several others who are hosting a silent blog auction to raise money for this family as well as an awareness of the prayers they need. If you have ever wanted a onesie dress, now is the time. Here is a 12 month Amy Bulter one up for bids. It would make a darling shower gift or a gift for your own sweet girl.



If you would like to bid on the auction, please leave a comment with your name, dollar amount of your bid and your email address. If you wish to do so anonymously than please just email me.

The dress sells in my shop for $15…so that is where the bidding will begin. The bidding will end on Friday (July 31) at midnight central time. Winner will be notified by email on Saturday. All the proceeds will be sent to this precious family.

If you would like to donate directly to the McRae family or host an auction of your own, please email or and she will make sure that they receive whatever it is you would like to give! If you would like to host an auction of your own, she will also write about it on her blog and link to your auction. Thank you in advance for your prayers and generosity.

Monogramming is coming…

2 fabric outfit 1My Mom has retired as of this summer…it is official.  We are so excited for her!!  One of my goals with my etsy shop is to get my own embroidery machine.  Until then, my Mom has agreed to do a few items for me.  Here is what I will be listing: a simple patchwork skirt with two fabrics and a monogrammed tank.  I will also be listing it using just one fabric with a slight price difference.  I just think it is so cute, and what isn’t cuter with some personalization?  They will be offered in sizes 18 month-6T.  2 fabric choices 2

Native American Instincts

I don't really know if I have any native American blood in me, but my "waste-not nature" comes out when we are talking about pretty fabrics. They use the whole animal and I empathize. I don't want to waste any amount of that cloth, so I made a burp cloth of scraps. I think I will call it the "scrappy rag" just because we have always called them rags around our home. (I hope that name isn't copyrighted. Please tell me if it is.) I like the way it turned out. I am a sucker for many fabrics combined.

Many more projects are happening around here, but I cannot post them yet because they are birthday gifts for many, MaNy, MANY friends and family members.
Happy Weekend!

I have got some new stuff cookin’ for the shop.  Here is one of the things you can order, if you are interested, initial shirts.  Beck had the capital B and Briggs had the lower case B, but he wasn’t cooperating at photo time.  Numbers are also available.  I will be adding them soon.

Model 1 

My darling niece, and my newest model.  I am expanding my shop to include some simple skirts and tops for toddlers and pre-schoolers that are perfect for the summer…

PS- This is my first post using Live Writer. I was having a lot of trouble posting pictures, but I hope I just figured it out.

Summer Reading

I found a great new blog this week thanks to Ucreate and Joyshope. Both of them talked about 7 Layer Studio so I spent one morning there reading with my chin on the floor...cute stuff. She had this great book mark tutorial and well, this is what my scrap basket looks like...

so it was the perfect project for me. I just made it. It took about 10 minutes, really.

Now my books are going to be lookin' good. I am especially excited to put it in my Sudoku book. I know I am like an 80 year old woman in a 30 something's body because I have become really into my Sudoku puzzles and I am super excited about being able to find the page I am on easily. Will you still be my friend if I am a dork? At least I am a dork with a cute bookmark. :-)
