A friend of mine is having twins, due sometime in the next few weeks. Babies are always exciting, but twins are double the fun! So, being me, I decided to put together a custom design for the new little ones. Since her in-laws are from Poland, my friend and her husband are planning to teach their kids Polish.. this was the first time I’d done shirt in a language I don’t speak when I came up with the text myself. (Hooray for Google Translate!)
I decided to go with onesies in the newborn size, and added the text “Love” and “Joy”, respectively “Miłość” and “Radość”.
I love the way the rays turned out and how they’re mirrors of each other.
My friend also has an older son, who’s going to have to adjust to these two new additions to his life. For the older siblings, I always like to give a little something too, since they are bound to notice all the new fun presents are going to these little guys and may be feeling left out. So, I made a shirt that says (if my Google Translating is correct): “Best Older Brother”.
Here’s a recent treasury of mine that I think is particularly lovely. Hooray for Autumn!
Coming into motherhood (I’ve been here almost a year now), I knew that babies were prone to putting things in their mouths. Hubby and I work pretty hard to keep things in our home fairly safe for our little guy, but I wasn’t quite prepared for the reality of it all.
My babe’s tenacity and inquisitiveness (while wonderful and good traits that I do want to foster and grow in the long run) lead to my regularly fishing all sorts of strange things from his mouth! Books and paper, ok, I sort of expected that. Shoes? Well, ok then. The other day I fished a half eaten Q-Tip from his mouth (happily it was a clean one), but then last week, he took a chomp out of our wall! Then I knew: he must have the soul of a Billy Goat.
Thus this new Billy Goat design was born. Inspired partly from my child’s strange eating habits and partially because I have fond memories of the Billy Goat Gruff story, I decided this excitement needed to be immortalized in this new, very cute, design:
He certainly keeps me on my toes! But I do love him all the more for it
Well, it’s more of an amended design since it’s only half new, but still.. the cuteness! The Hug Me robot has been in my shop for a while, but I decided that it needed a companion: Kiss Me!
I love robots and am very happy to be offering two this set that is perfect for twins (or one really lucky little one!)
This one has been a while in the making. The idea for making stars with stripes has been floating around in my brain for some time and finally I sat myself down and started sketching it out. However, it turns out that this was a more complicated idea than I’d expected; I think I drew it out four times before I got it just right. So, here it is! The great reveal of this Stripey Star design!
And, what’s even better than a brand new design? A give-away!!
I’m partnering with the wonderful Dominique Cloutier, over at My Work-At-Home World, for a give-away of a onesie with this brand new design! Go here to get all the details on how you could be the lucky winner!
Even though it may seem like summer is beginning to wane, there is still time to get out and make some memories with family around a campfire.. especialy with s’mores! There’s nothing that says summer like the combination of roasted marshmallows, melty chocolate and the crunch of grahams. So, I’ve made a combo set to celebrate the deliciousness!
Personally, I’m all about patiently turning my marshmallows until they are roasted to golden perfection, though I know my brothers are more about efficiency and burnination. Are you a golden-toasted or a burning-goodness sort of marshmallow fan?
