In love with Amy Butler!

I am into all things Amy Butler these days. I "accidentally" (before I was aware of her design talent or who she is!) bought some Amy Butler paper a while back (see this post) and then, searched like crazy to find some more. Finally I found the very last Amy Butler paper pack at Michael's! WooHoo! Here is my latest set of blocks...using Amy Butler's Lotus Tea Box paper. Check out her gorgeous fabric patterns here.

Don't these blocks just cheer you up?! :D

A great new idea!

Recently I had a custom order for some blocks for a baby shower. The coolest thing was the the customer wanted to use them as decoration on the cake! She had me send them directly to the cake maker. What a fun idea! Thanks, Christina, for your creative idea and for sending me some pictures from the shower!!

Didn't this cake turn out just darling?!

I'm A Finalist!!!

I'm so excited and incredibly honored! Etsy is hosting a Handmade Kids challenge/contest with seven categories. I entered this set of blocks into the Kids Home Decor category and then sort of forgot about it. They've just announced the 40 finalists for each category and my FAM friend Melanie was sweet enough to let me know that I am a finalist! I'm still in a bit of shock that my blocks were chosen. So, for the next 2 weeks, registered Etsy members can vote once in each of the seven categories. I would LOVE your votes! If you're not a registered member, you can easily register for free at Here is the link for my category:
The winners in each category win a $200 etsy shopping spree and everyone who votes in the contest is entered to win one of 14 $350 etsy shopping sprees! Great prizes to be sure!
