The mommy blues




It hasn't been so long ago that I don't remember the new mommy blues. You feel icky, fat, lazy and unimportant and you would just like to have a pity party with a bowl of chocolate ice cream...right? Yep, I've been there! I am not sure that I have ever met a mom that hasn't felt that way, come to think of it. Well, fear no more...check this out http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13655330 If you need a little something for a pick me up, get on over to the Etsy listing above and put some jazz in your padzzz! Yep, nursing inserts that are stylish and budget friendly. To all you nursing moms...YOU ROCK!!!






Birth-tees


As if a precious baby was not adorable enough...add this birth-tee, a snapshot and a photo card and you've got yourself one precious little new arrival announcement!

I found this item on Etsy today. You can click here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_1&listing_id=13843543 to see the entire listing. There are many designs available, both for little girls and little boys ( maternity mommy tees too).

Paper items





If you're like me, you see all of those cute little note cards, business cards, calling cards and invitations in the store and you want to buy them all. As I often do, after being inspired by a design, I decided to get on the computer and "play". I laid out all kinds of formats, patterns and designs. In the end, I managed to come up with a birthday invitation and a business card. It was fun putting all of it together. I have some other ideas that I will share soon...stay tuned!

I will be using the birthday invitation layout for my "little cupcake"!

New patterns




Here is a preview of some patterns that I will be using this fall. I fell in love with this designer when she released her "Ginger Blossom" fabric line. She is a fabulous designer and a very down to earth person. She puts an extensive amount of time and energy into her work and it shows. She was awarded 2nd place at the 2008 Quilt Market for her display booth. If I could pick a designer to have lunch with and share ideas, it would be Sandi. She is an inspiration!

I am looking forward to fall!!!!
