Walking for Healthy Babies!!

     Four years ago I started a team for March for Babies called Precious Moments and I am still going! Sadly, I have lost almost my entire team along the way but I will always raise money for this wonderful cause. I have two children of my own and they were born healthy and full term but so many babies out there are not. I would love to see every baby born healthy some day and that is why I walk.

     I added a small badge to the right of my page that has my fundraising goal on it. I set a goal for myself of $250 this year in hopes of atleast reaching it but secretly hoping to exceed it :) Click on the link if you would like to help me out with my journey or to learn more about this wonderful cause. There are teams all over the country so if you are interested in walking, there is a place on their WEBSITE to find a local team near you!

A New Item Added TODAY!!

     Introducing my new collection of baby washcloths! These are the two sets I have listed today but have many more to come!! They measure 7.5"x7.5" and work wonderful for bath time or for wiping your baby's messy face, hands, etc. They come in a set of four and are made from soft flannel fabric on the front side and soft terry cloth on the back. They would make a great baby shower gift for all of those Spring babies coming!!

     I just ordered several new prints of designer fabric from Michael Miller and Robert Kaufman and they should be on their way!! Since I live outside of the cities and none of the quilt stores up here carry any of them, I ordered it from another Etsy seller. I am so excited to add more new items to my shop soon! I will be adding several blankets and also a few gift sets that include 3-4 items, will tell more about them once I make my final decisions on the set.

Exciting News!!

     I was recently contacted by the owner of LU Boutique in Superior, WI and she wants to sell my items in her shop!! It is located just on the other side of Duluth if you are from the area and would like to check it out. I am going to make the drive up there in the next few weeks to check it out and drop off some of my items. I have never sold in a consignment boutique before but I am willing to try it out and hopefully it will be a success for her shop as well as myself.

     They also have a blog that she will be updating soon if you are interested in it. LU: Handmade Goodness

     Once my things are available I will let you know! The weather is starting to warm up here and there has actually been grass spottings in some areas!! Silly, I know, but it is a very big milestone that spring is on its way!

New Item!

     The pacifier clips have arrived!! I have three listed so far but about 15 or so waiting to be listed so be sure to come check them out in MY SHOP!


Durable fabric pacifier clip, not flimsy ribbon. Made from 100% cotton fabric and is super durable with 4 layers of fabric and top stitched for extra support.

The clip is lead-free and has plastic teeth so it will not snag or ruin your little ones clothing. It has a CPSIA approved snap so that they cannot pull it apart like a velcro one. It measures approx 10 inches including the clip.

These would make great baby shower gifts!!! You can also use them for clipping toys on!

What Motivates or Inspires You?

     So I closed down my shop for the entire week to focus on sewing and being able to bring my shop back up with some fun new items! As nice as that sounds, I live in freezing cold MN where the wind chills have been roughly -30 and with my sewing room in the basement where its cold, its not the place I really want to go. Well with a small space heater I cured that but I find myself walking in there some days, stand in the middle of the room, look at the projects I am in the middle of and I turn around and walk back out!

     During the holiday season, I would just turn on the Christmas music station and that would keep me in there for hours. Now that Christmas is over, the regular radio just doesn't do it for me. So....I pulled out my Friends seasons on DVD, popped them in and Voila! I'm creating!! I started the beginning of the week with season 3 and am now half way through season 5. I have seen them all millions of times but absolutely love the show so I can listen to the episodes and know exactly what is happening without having to sit and watch it! I think I am on to something great!

     I am going to work on as much as I can, while my husband is off for 4 days to help entertain the kids :)  I am going to bring my shop back up on Sunday so I am saving Saturday for photo taking and editing. I don't have as much as I would have liked but I have more than I thought I would, if that makes sense. I am going to spread out my listings throughout the week so that I will always have new things to list.

     What inspires you or motivates you to do things that you may not want to do?
