I'm am so excited to announce that I have added my 1st boy item to my Etsy shop, the Little Man Necktie. I'm working on other designs, so expect more to come. Here are some pictures from our little photo shoot, Taylor is the happiest model, I love that boys smile!

To go along with the whole sports/baseball theme going on in Taylor's room I came up with the baseball curtain rod. We used a one inch wooden dowel for the rod and hung it on some inexpensive rod hangers, all together it cost about $5 for the set up.

1 small bar of soap
1 piece of clean plastic sheeting, 3 feet wide by 4 feet long
1 piece of clean string, 24 inches long
1 packet alcohol wipe
1 set of sterile latex gloves
1 packet (or travel container) Purelle
1 handmade tote bag
I would also like our kits to include 1 receiving blanket and 1 stuffed animal, let's make these special!
So I am looking for donations of the items listed above, expect the stuffed animals, my mom is taking care of that. If you want to donate one item, or enough to fill a whole kit, anything will help. I will sew the tote bags and receiving blankets, unless there is anyone out there that would like to help with that.
Just leave me a comment here, or on facebook if you want to help bless these women and I will keep you regularly updated on what we need and how many kits we have stuff for. Then on Friday, February 25th at 10am I'm going to have a kit assembly party at our house where we will package everything up and mail it out. Hope to see you there!!!

If you have never done freezer paper stenciling you have to check it out, it's addicting!! My sister came up recently so I could show her how to do it and we spruced up an old pair of her shoes. You can find freezer paper at the grocery store and you want to use fabric paint for your design because it just works better.
When everything is cut out you are left with a stencil, you can be as detailed as you want but I would suggest starting with something simple for your first project just to get the hang of it.

2010 was a year of many changes for us, with the addition of a new family member and setting new goals that we put into action, we have stayed very busy. I have really enjoyed writing this blog and for the coming year I hope to be even more active on here. I also have some great new items that I will be adding to my Etsy shop, including boy stuff, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Thank you to those of you that have been reading, hope you had a wonderful New Years, God bless.
