Happy New Year!

We are closing out our year on a long road trip.
Our trip began last Sunday and continued with one
car breaking down, one rental car and many stops
to nurse a sweet baby. Oh the adventure we are on!
We will continue our way to Atlanta later this week
and then finally home. It has been good to be surrounded
by our friends and family during this festive time.
I hope you all enjoy the end of this year and the beginning of the next!

I tried...

to stay away from a sewing machine for a week. But I couldn't. I visited my family in Alabama over the past week and really had a relaxing time. I even found an excuse to use my sister-in-law's sewing machine. STOCKINGS! thanks amy!

Tonight we have just been enjoying the holiday! Our Christmas tree brings such joy!

Jolly Holly!

It's Christmas time, although here in Texas the leaves are just now changing colors and many people are still sporting their flip-flops. It was bittersweet to put away the fall decorations and get out the Christmas stuff. It is hard to believe that this year is coming to an end.
Put your little one in this set and they are sure to inspire many to enjoy the wonderful season that's ahead (or should I say that's happening now). I hope your Christmas planning and shopping is relaxing and fun. Let me know if I can help in any way.

I have made many cute baby sets this week. I can't wait to share pictures but they are being given as gifts. Don't want to spoil the surprises. Check back soon for more pictures and gift ideas.

Hooray for good friends with good things to say about the shoes! I mailed my friends, Ava and Sophia Sartor, these shoes and shirts last week. I needed some older and more experienced "movers and shakers" to test out the slip-resistant soles on the 6-12 month shoe. They were the perfect product testers and so cute for the camera!
Lauren, their sweet mama, had good things to say about the soles:
"The girls tried out the shoes yesterday and they worked great. They seemed to be fine
for crawling or walking, and they never came off or caused slipping. Ava seemed to walk more in these shoes than I have seen her walk in anything else (pajamas or socks) at home. While Ava was standing on the hardwood floor, I tried to slide her foot a little and it seemed to hold pretty well (better than non-skid socks)."
Thank you Lauren for letting your girls be my guinea pigs and your sweet comments!

For a Friend

The Possibilities are Endless!!

Sara has been quite the sewing buddy lately. She has such fun focusing on all the patterns. (I hope she continues to enjoy this sewing thing as much as I do!) I keep pulling out all of my favorite fabrics and piling them up together to see what strikes my fancy.
I have been drooling over this cute poppy print for months and decided a red was it's perfect match for fall. I made these coordinating long sleeve shirts and shoes for a good friend's twin girls. I hope they enjoy!

I loved them so much I made Sara a pair!

the beginning

over the past few weeks (ok maybe months) i have been toying with the idea of selling the things i create, mainly baby gifts. after a friend inspired me with her story, i have decided to take a risk and venture out into the unknown. so here it is... a blog that features the baby shoes i make. these are made while my 3 month old, sara evangeline, is napping or talking to her "friends" on her activity mat. the idea behind this grand plan is to provide me with both an outlet to create and the freedom to stay at home with my baby while (hopefully) making a few bucks.
i enjoy the creativity and the practicality that come with these little shoes.
after the cooler weather came around, i wanted something for sara's feet that were cuter then socks, although socks can be cute, and that didn't cost a fortune. so these became my solution. i found the idea from some other crafty women on the internet, put a little twist on them and poof... adorable shoes! they are fun to mix and match with her outfits and they are easy to put on and they stay on her little feet.
i am also offering other baby gifts that coordinate. a pair of personalized burp cloths and onesies would make a baby gifts to die for. to make things a little easier, everything is priced at $15 each. buy two and save $5.... 2 for $25!
i'm always open to suggestions and requests. if you already have a "vision" but need the hands to create it, please feel free to contact me!
i might be a little slow at this blogging thing... so bear with me...
thanks for stopping by!
