Christmas Party!!!!!!

20 Dec

Ok so hopefully you Christmas shopping is all done (don’t feel bad if it’s not, mine isn’t either), and it’s time to start getting ready for that P-A-R-T-Y!

So what to buy to have an incredible party? Being an ETSY seller myself here are a couple super cute must haves.

First you have to have fantastic place mats. I love anything cute and whimsical, so I find these lovely Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas Reversible Santa Place mats   truly fun. In order to create that gorgeous, fantastic, beautiful, centerpiece, you MUST start with an incredible base. I absolutely adore this vase. Being just 6″ it would not over-power your table settings.

So many other wonderful items to choice from, but presently I love all the original banner designs that so many shops have developed this season. However I must say I love this one. It is cute with an inspiring theme.

New Embroidered Baby Blanket Line

15 Dec

I have just finished the first two blankets of my new Embroidered baby blanket line. I am very excited about this as it affords me the opportunity to place objects and animals on the blankets that would normally not come off very well in a 3D layout. I have started the line with 2 blankets each inspired by my children. As every summer my son has the best time watching the swallow tail caterpillars in our backyard, I have created this wonderfully warm and soft light green baby blanket, featuring a hungry caterpillar on a leaf and have backed it with wonderful abstract yellow, blue, and green foliage. The other blanket is pure girlie in every way, just like my daughter. A beautiful pink flower is embroidered on the front and gorgeous rose fabric backs the blanket.

Many more will be coming soon, so please keep checking back.

ETSY meets SNOW

12 Dec

It’s Friday, it’s cold outside and it’s time for some snow inspired items from my favorite online store – ETSY. Check out these elegant dangling earrings. Let your ears drip in ice but feel only HOT! 

I cannot talk about SNOW on ETSY without noting this awesome Holiday SNOW Decorative Letters. Put them on your mantel and bring a little seasonal decoration to your home that can stay up all winter! (or longer if you live in the extreme latitudes) 

Ok and lastly, just because the theme is snow, I love these snow shoes converted to wall sconces. These would be perfect for that little lodge on Lake Tahoe that I wish I had. 

Ready for the Holidays!

7 Dec

As I am thinking about decorating my house, dreading the trip to the attic to get everything down, I want to help others get their homes ready for the holidays too. I have discounted all my holiday items 20% through out my Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BBsForBabies). This includes all my non-holiday specific wreaths.

Pine Cone Wreath

I have also included in my holiday sale all my jewelry, hats, and other items that would make great stocking stuffers, such as my gadget hats (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31033422) which you can custom with your choice of fabric.

Gadget Hat

This incredible style of hat is a staple for me, I wear it everywhere. The hat features a convenient pocket in the back which is comfortable and handy for storing your cell phone, mp3 player, etc.

These savings won’t last!

New BBS!!!!!

2 Dec

Now that Christmas is essentially done for my crafts, ie all the designs and big projects I wanted to do are done, I can start focusing on my BB collection. Although I truly love ALL the projects I do, I absolute LOVE doing the BB Blankets. Each one is made with special love knowing that it will find it’s way to a little child’s arms to love it just as much as my children love theirs.

Braining storming new BB ideas, this December you will see: moose, horse, rabbit, tiger, puppy, koala, elephant, and many more. Additionally I have some truly beautiful designer fabric that will be backing some soft minky fabric for those who want headless BBs 😉
