I've been framed

I had my modern dog magazine article framed at JoAnn's a few weeks ago and it was finally ready for pick-up this evening. I was really happy with the way it turned out and even happier that I managed to get everything level. Only because I was hanging a picture of Martha Stewart did I get out a level and a ruler. Pardon my mess.... I am crafting to serve you better!

Jungle fever

One of my most loyal customers commissioned some thank you notes for her daughter's jungle-themed birthday party this weekend. Check out the giraffe and elephant designs:

More Blossom Portraiture Art

I recently had yet another opportunity to work with the talented Suymey Benson of Blossom Portraiture Art and I am thrilled to share the fruits of her labor. I'll be updating my Etsy listings over the next day or so. Thanks to Suymey and her adorable models for this beautiful work!

It's been bib mania around here this weekend. I've had so much fun sewing like crazy on these cute little Dressy Drooler bibs. Check out my shop for the full selection - I've got about 20 more designs that I'll be uploading over the next week.

Feeding frenzy

Happy Sunday! I've been working away on some new bib sets this morning and I've just listed the first set in the shop:

Baby gift set - Bib and two reusbale wipe cloths in bright turquoise and melon prints ($18)

I also listed a new lab set last night:

And last but not least, don't forget about the SAMPLE SALE going on now in my shop! I'll be adding more ready-made items over the course of the next week but the sale won't last long.

Sample Sale going on now in the Etsy shop!

I've been threatening to hold a sample sale for a few weeks now and it's finally happening! In an attempt to clear some of my existing inventory, I'm offering several ready-made items at reduced prices for a limited time. Visit the SAMPLE SALE section of my Etsy shop and check back over the course of the next week to see what new items I'll be adding. The sale won't last long as I'll soon be clearing out to make room for holiday items.

{All items in the sample sale are brand new -- never worn or washed and not previously sold. Items are only available in the size indicated in this listing and no customization is available.}

Hop on over - New stationery!

Happy Sunday! It's been a rainy weekend in Austin although I don't think you'll hear too many complaints. After a long, hot drought this summer, the city is busy doing a collective rain dance. I am so glad for the trees and all of our dormant grass.

I've been busy catching up on orders, as usual, and hope you will enjoy this latest set of stationery I've just listed in the shop:

Personalized Leap Frog Notecards - Set of 10 ($15):

Labor Day weekend

Happy Labor Day weekend! It's been a laborious weekend around here but I feel very accomplished. We finally got to the store to pick out a new mattress and box spring on Friday and it was delivered last night. For two people who love to sleep as much as we do, it's a crying shame we went soooo long before replacing our old set which had to have been at least 18 years old. It was a hand-me-down about 10 years ago from my Aunt Shelley and it was well past its prime. So we replaced it with a new pillow top set and I am pleased to report it was a great night's sleep. The only down side is that I am going to have to get one of those little doggy ladders for the cats because this one is about 10 inches higher than the old set. Old creeky bones Stitch is having a hard time hurling his 17 pounds over the edge!

I am also in the process of doing some serious de-cluttering around here. When I was in Atlanta last month I got lots of new fabrics so I plan to list some new items in the shop - like this new bulldog onesie and burpcloth set:

I also hope to have the start of my (gulp) holiday items up in the shop over the next couple of weeks. I designed my gift tags last night and am going to start on cards today/tomorrow. I can't believe it's still Africa-hot here and I am thinking about Christmas stuff... but if I don't do it now it will never happen. So stay tuned for some fresh, new holiday goodies coming soon! Enjoy the long weekend.
