This video was just sent in by a mom of the cutest little girl ever! This little sweetie is wearing one of my St. Patrick Onesies at the St. Patrick’s Day parade-they show her about halfway through the video! Thanks so much for sharing Rebecca!!! St. Pat’s Parade Video

This sweet little 12 mos onesie is adorned with hand embroidered shamrocks for a special little guy or gal. The shamrocks are made using a  modified lazy daisy stitch and a few straight stitches for the stems. French knots finish off the trio of shamrock’s border.

Baskets and Bunnies for Boys!

What? Never anything fun for boys, just tons of girl stuff? Not on my watch! With three boys I got tired of never finding anything unique or truly fun for little boys! So, I got busy!

Check out the little Plaid Bunny with brown button eyes and his chocolatey brown collar with the large brown button on the side. The matching basket has a soft furry tan inside, with the plaid lining the outside of the basket. The chocolate brown velvet ribbon adorns the edge of the liner with a button on each side. This bunny and basket can be personalized for your very own special guy. These baskets are apprx. 6 inches in diameter and 4 inches in depth-perfect for egg hunting!

Next enter Suede bunny with soft furry edges and a soft green silk ribbon tie around his neck. His coordinating basket is made of the same soft furry material on the inside and the tan suede on the outer liner with edging of the ivory fur. Above the edging of fur is a wrapped back stitch of ivory embroidery floss with the pretty limey green silk ribbon. This bunny and basket can also be personalized for a special little boy!

Notecards for little boys!

These fun notecards are perfect for  little boys! The greens, navies, khaki’s, blues and browns all lend themselves to little boys, but fun patterns adds a bit of whimsy! I love using the mounting tape to give the cards added dimension and depth. I hope this new mommy enjoys her new little boy and has fun with his note cards!

Alphabet on the Wall!

My boys LOVED being able to paint these on the wall themselves-and not get into trouble doing it! I drew the outlines, put paint in small recycled yogurt containers and gave them lots of brushes. I helped, too! What fun! When we were done we put the trampoline in the corner and played a fun game of Simon Says. Simon says….Jump up and down two times, spin around once and point to the letter W with your left hand! The best thing about this is that there is truly no risk, just paint over with primer when you’re ready for a change and then paint right over it!

Stick Alphabet!

What is it about boys that they LOVE to play with sticks?! Even the most discriminating mom would think that this type of stick play would be okay! This Alphabet all started with-“Mommy does this look like a Y?” We were able to do the whole alphabet and the guys loved running back and forth finding the perfect sticks!

Painted Piano!

I found this fun piano on Craig’s list-did I mention that I LOVE Craig’s list?! It was originally a player piano, but the player hardware had been removed. My boys love to open the little doors and watch the keys move as they play. It was already painted when I got it and  didn’t quite match, so I resolved to paint it a fun color! I finally decided on a Robin’s Egg blue and set to work stripping, priming and then finally painting. I also recovered the seat cover of the  little bench and painted the wooden part to coordinate with the piano. This was quite a project. My one bit of advice is that if you decide to paint a piano, pick one that hasn’t been painted yet!  It was definitely worth the effort,though,  as the piano sounds great and the boys love to play on it!

Fun with Woodburning!

With a little inspiration this cool wooden hinged cigar box was turned into a neat keepsake box for a special guy. I drew on his monogram, the insignia for Scouts (he’s currently in the Weeblo’s), lacrosse sticks (his favorite sport), and and an outline of his dog Coco. I also drew on the wording. I then went over my drawing with a woodburning tool. After doing my most recent Noah’s Ark I was anxious to try out some more woodburning-what fun!  I love it! Happy Birthday Jacob!
