I just love that this stocking represents everyone in the family! Daddy (Dave) represented by Santa Claus loves poker-note the cards and die in his hands and on the table. Mommy (Joan) is represented by Mrs. Claus-she holds the large red sack of presents with more scattered around it and on the floor.
One of the girls is nick named “Birdie”-note the little birdie on the shelf holding the Santa Hat? “Come on Santa!” she seems to be saying, “You’ve got to get ready to go!”. Also on the shelf is a NY Yankies baseball cap-Daddy is a big fan, and a Wii remote-the whole family loves to play.
There is a window showing a wintry scene to set the Christmas mood-a tree with snow on the limbs and snow falling in the sky-and, what? A rainbow-another fun family reference! I can see the kids pointing and talking about the things that they like or represent them and everyone having fun talking about it! What else? A lacrosse stick, jacks (for nick name Jack Pack!), tennis shoes (mom and the girls like to run!), beans with one sprouting (nick name Bean!), a basketball, a camera, a pail, shovel and starfish to represent the seaside, an artists palette and brush, a toy sword, and a theater mask-oh what fun!
Joan, what a great keepsake for the whole family! Thank you so much for thinking of me for this fun project!

Little Ethan and his family live near the shore-you may have noticed the Palm Christmas tree and the ocean with sailboat, waves and a jumping fish out of the window! I just love the aqua color and the fun bright red accents of this stocking!
Ethan’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch, but double wrapped for added dimension. The hand embroidery on his stocking includes a representation of Ethan himself, in Christmas red and white pajamas, wearing a cowboy hat, and holding a drum with drumsticks. The family dog, Madison, watches Ethan from behind. The Palm Christmas tree has lots of presents underneath waiting to be unwrapped, but there are a few other toys throughout the room for Ethan: his favorite night time book-Goodnight Moon, a set of blocks spelling his name, a red wagon with a teddy bear in it, and a toy car. Another little “ode” to the Goodnight Moon book is the little mouse on the bottom right corner of the stocking!
Thank you so much again Brandy for thinking of me to make this special stocking for your little guy!

Well, I have to say what a fantastic time I have had this year making some gorgeous baskets for lots of little ones! How lucky I feel to have such wonderful customers! Just to share a bit…this year I have been lucky enough to make a basket for a newly adopted little boy-his mom even sent me pics of the whole family with the Judge! What a blessing to the family and for me to be able to be involved in some small way in this wonderful family event! This year I got to make lots of liners for new baby brothers and sisters of previous customers who I had already made baskets for for their first child-how exciting to see new families growing!
Another previous customer emailed me from the hospital as she was there preparing to deliver her second baby girl-and she thought of ME because she wanted another liner for her sweet new baby! How special does that make me feel?! Pretty darn special!
I’ve had wonderful pictures shared from customers-some even professional photographers! I just love seeing the little ones enjoy my creations!!
And this year, I can hardly believe that I am saying this, but I even made baskets for the children of a movie star and her famous musician husband! I’ve got so many feathers in my cap it may be enough to take flight! Of course, my husband says I may not be able to fit through the door because my head is getting so big! HA!
But, as usual, I have just LOVED making so many fun special baskets. I truly love what I do and I thank YOU ALL from the bottom of my heart! As I tell my husband, I just hope I get to keep doing these fun things! Maybe I really do have a chance!!!!!
Please keep checking back for lots more fun pics of lots of different projects. I am desperately behind updating my blog but hope to continue to update now that the craziness of Easter has abated somewhat.

This year, I’ve also finally branched out to Christmas Stockings! I got one (yes, I know) made last year and am hoping to get a bunch started ahead of time for next season. Believe it or not, I started working last summer on Easter baskets and items! Being a stay at home mom, still, I work on things as often as I can, but my three boys are still my priority! Next year all three will be in school full time! Sad for mommy, but I can’t wait to see how much more I can accomplish!

What fun to do these storage baskets for baby Lilah! I loved Mommy Susie’s whimsical titles for the baskets, too! “Sweet and Sassy”, “Pampered”, “Book Worm” and “Life Gets Messy” for the laundry basket! Too much fun!
The pretty purples and green stripey fabric coordinates with Lilah’s bedding and room and was provided by Mommy. LOVE it and I loved being able to do lots of fun shades of purple flowers along the baskets rim. The wording was done in a wrapped dotted stitch in a fun Curlz font. The flowers were hand stitched in a combination of silk ribbon and regular embroidery floss.
The “Pampered” and “Sweet and Sassy” storage basket liners were both trimmed in a mini white puffball edging. The interior liners lines were sewn with the lines going in a vertical direction with the exterior portion being laid horizontally to add more whimsy! The “Book Worm” basket’s trim has the larger chenille balls and the basket itself is a bit deeper to hold all of Lilah’s fun books.
The laundry basket already had an ivory interior liner, so I created a panel for the front that can be removed by unbuttoning it from the inside for cleaning, etc. This panel has a trim of a coordinating beautiful plum purple satin ribbon.
Oh what fun was it to do this gorgeous lamp! I got to try my hand at ribbon roses-and I LOVE them! I love the green it just brings everything together!
Thank you SO MUCH Susie for thinking of me for this project! I just loved being able to do all of these baskets to make your sweet little girlie’s room even more special!

I so loved being able to make this finger puppet stage! I had been wanting to do one for ages when Lily Sophia’s mommy mentioned wanting to do something extra fun for her little girlie’s first birthday! She mentioned how much she loved the Dream Big Little Pig book by Kristi Yamaguchi and I saw the perfect opportunity! Little piggy finger puppets- a mommy, daddy, Poppy pig and other piggies to show all the fun things that Poppy pig tried out while she was dreaming big!
I wanted the puppet theater to resemble the amazing theaters of the past. I made the soft baby pink curtains pleated with lots of draping and finished them off with mini puffballs. The theater itself is trimmed with a lime green satiny rope piping-along the edges and along the inside of the opening of the theater itself. Jewels adorn the stage along it’s parapets and underneath the opening of the stage (resembling the lighting of the stages of days past). Lily Sophia’s monogram is hand embroidered in a dotted wrapped stitch on the middle front of the stage, and hand embroidery accents the top front of the stage as well as along the scroll designs on the sides.
Now, you can have a great looking puppet theater, but to make it even better, I wanted it to be portable! For a growing little girl, mommy’s love to be able to take things along for their little ones! So, I made lots of pockets for the puppets to go in on the back-with plenty of room to add more finger puppets for Lily Sophia’s growing collection!
The puppet theater is held together by a pretty ribbon tied in a bow, and then is held by a gorgeous chevron striped baby pink and white ribbon handle.
Mishelle, thank you so much again for thinking of me for this great project! I LOVED doing it and hope to get to do more fun puppet theaters in the future! Speaking of which, I’ve finished off two since doing this project! Check back to see my updates as I am slowly trying to catch up!!

Oh, my, was this ever fun to make for little Lily Sophia! Mommy Mishelle wanted a fabulous first birthday for her little sweetie based on one of her favorite children’s books-Dream Big Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi. It is such a sweet book! It’s about a little girlie pig who tries to figure out what she is good at-she finds out lots of things that she is NOT good at, only to finally find that with lots of practice she is really GREAT at ice skating!
Mishelle and I dreamed big-we wanted a fancy puppet theater to coordinate with Lily Sophia’s room that she would be also able to use at her birthday party. Mishelle thought a Mommy and Daddy pig with some fun props would be so much fun to play with and show off at the party. I made little special piggie finger puppets- complete with wings and curlique tails for each of Lily Sophia’s party guests (well, the little ones!) and Mishelle got each a copy of the book. Lily got a few extra finger puppets to go with her theater for her birthday-a piggie puppet with wings that were also able to be removed and reattached, a fancy girlie piggie in a hot pink satin dress holding a microphone, a mini easel, a “casual” girlie piggie, and a mommy and a daddy piggie as well.
A large Poppy Pig was a must for little Lily Sophia as well! Check out how Poppy Pig looks just like the character in the book-from her “sequined” bodice to the light purple and hot pink satiny ice skating costume to the hot pink ribbon in her hair! She even has ice skates that are removeable! Poppy also has some wire inside of her to make her poseable for extra fun!
