I've been spending much of my free time lately making sets of blocks. My dear friend Angie put me in contact with Terri at The Lucky Ladybug, a great children's consignment shop in Muskegon. She really liked my blocks so I made 10 sets for the store plus a custom set for her. I'm having a lot of fun coming up with new color combos and themes. I'm now working on Mickey Mouse sets and Disney Princess sets. We'll see how they turn out! Here's the Flickr link for the sets I worked on:

Let me know what you think! And, of course, if you'd like to order a set, email me and let me know what colors/theme/letters you'd like and I'll get to work on it!

New Logos!

I recently contacted Jenny of Pink Armchair Designs to have her come up with a logo for me. I'm excited to reveal two! Leave me a comment and let me know which one you like better. I know they're similar, but that's why I had a tough time choosing! Jenny is a sweet girl, easy to work with and has amazing designs! She does custom blogs, logos and other designs for great prices. You should definitely check her out!

New blocks, new fabric, and new snappies, oh my!

I haven't been so great at keeping my blog updated with my projects lately because I'm too busy listing them on Etsy :) I got a few new fabrics the other day to add to my stash for custom albums or whatever. So much fun to look at fabric! I got some funky zebra print to make a pillow case dress for Ashlyn. Can't wait until I really have time to work on it! Check out the new fabrics in my flickr album.

I also finally got around to working on another set of my custom baby blocks. These turned out so cute! I plan to send them (along with a smaller set) to Baby Swags. I was recently contacted by Baby Swags and they're interested in possibly including my blocks in celebrity mom gift bags! I just have to submit an actual sample for final approval.

I've also been working on some more snappie clips. The Baby-Baldy clips are perfect for newborns and have been hot sellers! I made up a few "starter sets" and listed them on Etsy. If you're interested in purchasing any of these sets, click on my Etsy store on the right side of the page!

I don't know about you all, but I had fun with this! I think I'll do it again toward the end of be watching ;) I'm wondering, though, if I should do different giveaways. Leave me a comment with your thoughts!

I apologize for my tardiness in choosing a winner, but my 16-month-old son was in the ER tonight, had to get a CT Scan and then was admitted. My husband, Kyle, is still at the hospital with Maguire now. It's been a long night! Not to worry too much, though. It seems as though everything is ok, he just has an infection that they're treating with antibiotics and will likely release him tomorrow--I hope and pray!

Again, congratulations Steph! Can't wait to see what you choose :)
