The Children of Troy VanderStelt Benefit Hockey game & Silent Auction

Earlier this month a longtime family friend of mine was brutally murdered. He left behind a beautiful wife and 4 gorgeous kids, ages 1-1/2, 2-1/2, 14 and 16. You can read the story here. This Tuesday night, there will be a benefit hockey game and silent auction. I am honored to donate some of my items for the silent auction.

3 Custom burp cloths, a "squash" album, a set of Amy Butler "Sola" blocks, and 2 Baby-Baldy hair clips.

There will be another silent auction held in a few months. I've had a few Etsy friends express interest in donating items for this next silent auction. What amazing generosity! They've never met ME, much less Troy or his family! I'm humbled by the outpouring of love. If you have an interest in donating items, please contact me at Thank you so much!

********************CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED********************

This contest will be a short one and it's in conjunction with . So what am I giving away? Well...BLOCKS! Check out a bunch of the different sets I've made. This giveaway is for a custom set of 3 small blocks. YOU choose the colors/theme and YOU choose the letters! Check out my previous blog posts for more details on the block sets. All materials used are non-toxic, so while the blocks are mainly meant for decoration, your kiddos can play with them with no worries! All you have to do is go to my Etsy shop, pick your favorite item and leave a comment on this post (I changed this after the first three comments, but they're still ok). At midnight on August 1 (or the morning of August 2 if I can't stay up that late!) I'll be randomly choosing the winner. Want to enter more giveaways?

Blocks with Amy Butler's Sola

I just adore Amy Butler's fabric lines, so I was thrilled to find her "Sola" line of paper! And with her paper, these blocks turned out just as adorable as I'd hoped they would :)

Introducing PHOTO BLOCKS!!

I'm so excited about this addition to my line of blocks! Customers can email pictures to me and I'll put them on one side of each block. I can add names/words/initials to the opposite sides as well.

I apologize, the pictures on the blocks have photographed with a bit of a glare. Note the artistic "brushstroke" look to the pictures. Very unique!
I can do any color/pattern combo--just like my regular blocks sets--with the photo blocks. Just contact me your thoughts and ideas and I'll get started on YOUR custom set!

Some bibs and blocks

Here are some custom orders I just finished. I love doing custom orders!

A bib and block set makes a darling little gift set!
