Natalie and Will’s Pillow Name Signs!

These little pillow name signs were mommy Karen’s  fabulous idea! She wanted Natalie’s little pillow to resemble Natalie’s big girl bedding, and Will’s to show off his love of sports (lacrosse, baseball, and football) and reading. Will’s also has a smidge of the same fabric that coordinates with his bedding and was used to make his custom Easter Basket (the green/yellow and navy plaid bias trim). I can make different personalized pillows, for example body pillow.  Evidence suggests they help some people feel more comfortable during sleep. They may be especially useful during pregnancy, or for those with posture-related back pain.

Natalie’s mini pillow has four sets of flowers-one in each corner around Natalie’s name. Natalie’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch in a warm pink. The flowers are made using a combination of straight stitches, back stitches, lazy daisy stitches, and french knots. The flower sets are connected with a stem stitch framing. The outer framing is a bias tape in the same warm pink.  The edging of the mini pillow is finished in a warm pink piping and the top two corners of the pillow each have pink gross grain ribbon used to tie a pretty bow and hang on little Natalie’s door!

William’s mini pillow has a football in one corner, two lacrosse sticks, a baseball and bat, and an open book in the other corner. The sports icons and book are all done in a combination of straight stitches and split stitches. The icons are tied together in a wrapped dotted stitch of green, then framed again by the bias tape of green/navy/pale yellow/ and white plaid. William’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch in navy. The pillow is edged in a navy piping and hung with two navy gross grain ribbons to tie on Will’s door.

Marlee’s Painted Rocking Chair and Cushion

What a joy to do this chair and cushion for little Marlee Ann! Marlee’s parents have had Olive in the family and Aunt Suzanne wanted to incorporate her into the chair somehow-what could be cuter than a bigger Marlee with her dog Olive in a doghouse?

Marlee’s room is done in soft greens and yellows, so we decided on the soft minty green for the chair color and the coordinating soft green with polka dots for the cushion. The chair has a tree with a yellow rose bush at it’s base, with roses trailing along the tree itself. White daisies with yellow centers adorn the base of another tree. The tree middle on the left arm of the chair has a hole for a squirrel to nest in. The front back of the seat has trees branching inward to show off “Marlee Ann” right in the middle and one of these branches contains an owl looking out. The branches below contain two birds and a bird nest with baby birds in it! Other things are “hidden” throughout the chair and as Marlee gets older I trust she will delight in finding them! There is a bee’s nest with bees scattered throughout the whole chair (let’s count the bee’s Marlee!), a little rabbit, an owl, and hmmm..have I forgotten anything?

Oh! My favorite part of the whole chair-except for the cushion!-is the “hidden painting” on the seat of the rocking chair. The scene shows an older Marlee holding a dog bone in one hand and a flower in the other. Marlee is wearing a soft green dress with white polka dots.  To the left of Marlee sits Olive in her dog house, a pretty pink flowering tree, and a hydrangea bush. To the right of Marlee are yellow tulips and a pink rose bush. The grass underneath this scene holds a special message for Marlee herself: “With love from Uncle Jared and Aunt Suzanne”. What a special little girl and how lucky to be so loved!

The cushion of the chair is hand embroidered to match the scene on the seat bottom.  The cushion is made of a soft minty green polka dotted cotton fabric and has piping along it’s edges and is held in place with fabric ties at the back of the cushion.

How fun to see little Marlee Ann sitting in her chair-and also to see Olive herself with her! Thank you so much Suzanne for sharing your precious photos and for allowing me to make such a special little chair!

Baby Hadley’s Tree Play Set

This little tree set was SO much fun to make! The tree was inspired by baby Hadley’s beautiful Lola bedding by Serena and Lilly. It all started with the little birdies! The tree and all the little pieces that go with it are all designed, hand cut, sanded and hand painted by me! The tree is actually made in two layers to give it more of a 3D effect-it also helps the little figures stay perched on the tree better! The play set comes with two owls, a mommy bird, a baby bird in a nest, a squirrel in the hole in the middle of the tree, a mommy and a baby rabbit, a large flower with a fairy to sit on, two “rows” of flowers, and a big  toadstool (mushroom)! The tree has pretty pink flowers and green leaves and the birdies also have pink and green on them to coordinate with Hadley’s beautiful bedding.

Also check out Hadley’s Sweet birdie and flower mobile, coordinating mini blanket, custom canvas, mommy and baby bird shelving, hand painted mini bird house, and custom onesies.

Angels for baby Sophia

Rebecca wanted angels for her little angel-to-be Sophia! These hand embroidered angels show off their bums while holding a pretty pink silk ribbon rose with mint green leaves. The mini blanket has the angel framed with a baby soft pink and pretty white mini puff balls. The back of the blanket is the soft pink cotton. The coordinating bib has Sophia’s name done in lots of french knots, and the burp cloth has Sophia’s monogram also done in french knots. The blanket and burp cloth also have dotted wrapped stitch detailing.

Sophia’s gifts also came with hand made personalized gift cards and gift boxes.

We are so excited for baby Sophia to be a part of our family! Aunt Shannon can’t wait to make lots of special little gifts for her!

Mommy and baby bird shelf for Hadley

This little shelf was made especially for baby Hadley to coordinate with her beautiful Serena and Lily Lola Baby Bedding! The shelving is approximately 24 inches in width, 7 inches in depth, and about 6 inches apart in height. The front of the shelving has two tree branches offsetting each other with a flowers on the branches and extra flowers sitting on top of them to add more depth. The top branch has a mommy bird looking down at a baby bird in her nest on the lower branch. The birds and flowers were hand painted to coordinate with the colors and theme of Hadley’s bedding. The shelves are painted a soft “shell” to match Hadley’s wall color. Check out baby Hadley’s Bird Mobile, Custom canvas, and other coordinating  items too!

Happy Father’s Day!

This napkin holder has all the others beat-hands down! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)  I traced one of all three of my little guys’ hand prints onto a piece of wood, cut them out, sanded them and let them paint them themselves! David and Leonard’s hand prints are on the top-to hold the napkins in place, and Cole’s is on the bottom (he’s the biggest!) to hold them all together. A perfect father’s day gift! Happy Father’s Day Daddy!!!! We love you!

Artwork for kids

This sweet little bunny and scene match the basket liner made especially for Steve. This small acrylic painting is the perfect size to put in a small frame and hang on your little guy’s door! Since it matches his special Easter basket, it would make a great cover for a photo album about all of this little one’s special Easters to come! Photos of the painting can be used to make Steve’s own custom stationary-oh, the possibilities are endless!

Henry’s Turtle Mini Blanket

This hand embroidered turtle is set on a soft light green cotton and then set in a double frame-white and the outer framing of  the soft green again. Henry’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch in a tealish blue and the light green-the same as the outer embroidered border about three inches in from the edge of the blanket. The back of this blanket is done in a raised dotted super cuddly fleece. This mini blanket is the perfect size for new little babies, and later for toddlers to carry around as a lovie! Also included in Henry’s special gift was a coordinating turtle card with his name on it. This card is an original hand painting-what a fun addition to any nursery!

I hope Henry has fun with his special little blankie!
