Tea Anyone!

A friend's little girl is turning one with a teapot theme. She asked me to make her a bid and shirt to go with the theme. Here is a practice run i just did and I love it.

I'm Still Here

Wow it has been awhile. This summer has been super business for my family and I. Between vacations and my little man's 2 birthday I have not been on my computer in a long time.
Planning my son's second birthday has been SO much fun. We decided to do a construction theme and of course I made his shirt. We had a blast playing in the sand, playing with tools, jumping on a trampoline, playing a the play set, and eating cake. Here are some pictures of our fun time.

Calen's Shirt. I love the way it came out!

Memorial Day

I'm back....

I'm SO excited about Memorial Day. We are having friends and family come over for a craw fish boil. Therefore I HAD to make Calen and shirt to wear. Here are two pictures (the shirt looks white but it is a mint green).

Love Feedback

I love to get feedback on the shirts I make for people. Here is feedback on the princess carriage.

The shirt is wonderful and fits great!  She has already worn it mulitiple times!  It's was perfect.  I will remember you for shirts later on and pass on your name to anyone looking for a shirt.

Game Day!

This morning I decided that Calen had to have a shirt for the Super Bowl. I found this adorable applique and made a shirt while Calen was napping. He's ready for some football.
Almost done!

It's the time of year that schools have their silent auctions/fundraisers. Last night we gave our first auction item to Incarnation School for their fundraiser on February 4th. Then we will be donating another certificate for a $20 value to Holy Spirit's Silent Auction/Spaghetti Dinner on February 11th. I'm excited to continue to get our business out there.

My Little Cowboy!

Here are two pictures of the first shirt that I made for Calen. I finally pulled it out of the closet and put a white shirt under it. If you can't tell the "C" looks like a rope. This applique has a lot of detail on it.

Valentine's Day Train

Here is Calen's new shirt. I love the way it came out.
