New Item!

A few months ago I bought a pattern from Keyka Lou and got permission to modify it to make a new item for my shop. Today I listed the first "Binky Bubble Pouch". Please stop and take a look! I will be making more soon.

New Look and Content coming soon!

If you have visited my Etsy shop recently you will notice that I have changed my avatar and banner. As I previously mentioned, I hired enchantedmemories at Etsy to do a mega redo. I am very pleased with everything so far! She also redesigned an ad for me which is currently on Craft Cult and now on Project Wonderful. Aside from those sites I am also advertising my shop on Handmade Spark and Cafe Handmade.

That being said, with all of these ads you would think I would be selling like crazy. But alas, I am not. The weird thing is I have had a few people convo me for custom listings and wholesale inquires and I will answer them and then get no further response. It is a bit of a downer. Add that to the fact that we have been here since the end of February and I have made no friends at all even though I have given my number to three people and still have a ton of stuff to do around the house. The good news is my family is getting along better since the move so that trumps anything else.

So that brings me to the new content. From now on I plan to use this blog not only for my shop updates but also for what I originally intended it for: To talk about life, the things that interest me and to hear from you. Long before I blogged I had a live journal and my own website where I rambled about pretty much everything. Then my life started to become especially overwhelming and busy and I just kind of stopped. I went to college to become a journalist, so naturally it is my nature to want to write and explore all different sorts of ideas and thoughts. Yet,the only part of my degree I am currently using is the research, so now it is time to write! My vision for this blog is to talk about all sorts of topics that relate to babies and toddlers such as breastfeeding and attachment parenting, cloth diapering, love and logic parenting and more. I would also like to include aspects of military life. These are the topics that interest me and are a part of my everyday life. I hope to gain some new followers as well as insight from my current followers. Thanks for sticking around.

The Toddler Belts Are Going Up!

The first 10 toddler belts are going up today!
Toddler Belts!

The introductory price is $8a belt plus shipping. They range between 24-25 inches long and fit most up to age 4. They are handmade so each is slightly different in sizing, but each has ribbon sewn on the backside so you see the print when pulled through the d-rings. I can do custom belts too, just send me a convo with your child's waist measurement!

Stay tuned for more to come!

More to come!

There is still a lot more to come in the next month or so. I will be introducing hair bows and clippies, hair bow display boards and even tutus! I have a whole long list of new items that I will be introducing this spring/summer before we have to uproot and move again to who knows where. Also coming soon is a new look for my Etsy shop and this blog! I have hired a great Etsian to do all the hard design work. Take a look at her shop, she is excellent! Enchanted Memories

Stay tuned for more updates and reveals!

Sneak Peek!

In the next few weeks I will be listing new items to my shop. The first will be the toddler belts that you have already seen as part of the Cantaloupe Corner giveaway. The belts will be available starting on April 9th, the day after the giveaway ends. The introductory price will be $8.

The next will be Pacifier Clip Display Boards. I haven't worked out the pricing details yet or whether or not the easel will be included or available for purchase separately for those who want them. They are 8x10 and are padded and backed with felt. They have a ribbon on the top to hang on the wall and come with a free pacifier clip. They will hold a maximum of 10 pacifier clips from my shop (maybe a few more or few less depending on what size you have from other shops). If there is a demand I can make larger sizes, but am starting with these for now. Here is a sneak peek!
