We're Going Green!!

     As a nursing mother myself, I decided to add a new item to my shop that I could use....reusable nursing pads!! I sat down tonight, found a pattern from a piece of tupperware in my cupboard, traced the circle and went down to my sewing room and created these!! I am so excited to add them to my shop and also to make some for myself too :)

     It started by me making my grocery list for the store tomorrow and I had to add nursing pads to it and I was thinking it would be nice to not have to keep buying them and, being the crafty person I am, went downstairs and made my own.

     This is just the first pair available right  now but there will be many more to come. As soon as I finished snapping my last photo of them, my son woke up hungry and was finished for the night. We are supposed to be snowed in this weekend so my plan is to sew sew sew!!!

     Please stop by the Little Buttercup Baby Shop in the next few days for some more new and exciting items!!

Bib & Shoe Gift Sets

     Here are two new sets I have added to my shop!! There are many more to come but it has been crazy around here in the last week or so with the holidays I haven't had time to get them all up and running. I did get into my sewing room for the first time today in at least a week. Between the three different Christmas celebrations we had, cooking, baking, kids, cleaning, putting away new toys, getting rid of old toys, laundry......the list goes on. I am hoping that after this holiday weekend to come, things will settle down a bit and some more crafting will get done.

     I am thinking about hiring a painter to come over and paint my sewing room. It is a darker blue right now and to me, that color is not inspiring at all!! I have picked out samples at Menards and like a sage green light purple combo. And then all of my sewing desks, storage and table are all white so that would be my accent color. I have hung white sheer curtains in the window to replace the hideous blue and green plaid ones that were there when we moved in. That did wonders for that room. They also had covered all of the outlet covers in the same ugly fabric.....not sure what that was about. I think if I can get the room painted and maybe redo some of my storage to make more I think that room will be good to go. I would love to paint it all myself but since I can't find time to sew or even to sit for a few minutes to blog, I better not try. It will probably sit half done for a few months and that will be even worse.

     Other than that, not much new here. Just wanted to log on and check in and show you all what I have been working on. It's time I get this shop up and running and I will get there!! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

All wrapped up

     Well it's official! All of the Christmas presents are wrapped!! It took us about two hours while the kids napped but we finally finished. We got all of the kids presents wrapped, the family drawing for my side, his family and also the birthdays that are in the next week also. Whew! We also were able to use up the older wrapping paper that we have had for years with different amounts on each roll. Now next year we will be able to start from scratch and buy all new fun paper :)

     We took the kids to go see Santa also and they did so good! No tears :)  My son just looked at him and my daughter was talking up a storm! She told him what she wanted for Christmas and what her little brother wants, according to her. Haha

     Now this week I will spend relaxing knowing that all of the work is done and will just count down the days til Christmas. My daughter has a Christmas chain going and my is it getting short fast!!!

     I hope you all have a great week and get all of your last minute shopping done :)

My New Toy :)

     I finally got my embroidery machine!! I had it in the box for about a week but finally made a spot for it in my sewing room. I haven't had a ton of time to play around with it but I did make my son a set of fabric blocks with his name on it and my daughter an apron with her name on the front pocket. I am thinking about adding both of those items to my shop as well but have to work on the pattern just a bit more. I can see that this is going to be very fun to use! I love to personalize things and now I can!!

     My plan for tomorrow is to sit in the sewing room and work on some new things and figure out what this machine can really do and watch the snow fall. We are supposed to get 14+ inches of snow here overnight into tomorrow so I will be a home body! We were supposed to take the kids to see Santa tomorrow but may need to wait until next weekend instead.

     We got all of our Christmas shopping done today!!! Anything we couldn't find in the store we got on Amazon. I love that website! Christmas shopping delivered right to your door, can't beat that! We also ordered our Christmas cards today online from Walmart and they are going to be so cute!! I can't wait to get them next week.

     Hope you are all getting your holiday things done. Christmas is fastly approaching and it is a very good feeling to be done. Now we just have to wrap them all up and wait for Santa to come ;)

The Bibs Have Arrived!

     The new bib designs have arrived!!! We are now backing all of our bibs from here on out in soft chenille instead of flannel. I went to JoAnn Fabrics and got a ton of new, fun designs for children's bibs and a lot of it is designer fabric. Here are 4 of the bibs we have listed tonight and there will be more to come!!

     I am on my mom's computer right now because my laptop charger cord shorted out some how and now my computer is dead and I have no way of charging it :(  I never knew I would miss it so bad! But luckily, I bought a replacement cord on Ebay and I should have it by Thursday this week. I haven't had any way of listing anything new or checking in on my shop other than through my phone which isn't that great so I can't wait for it to arrive!

     I will make it a quick blog entry tonight as it is getting late and I have to let my mom's computer go back home with her soon :) 

Check out the new bib selection HERE!
