I just love to see sweeties enjoying their baskets and liners! And mommy Neely told me that Adelaide’s bunny left her an early present in her basket-and it wasn’t jelly beans! Ugggh! Ah, what us mommies will do for our precious babies! Enjoy them, Neely! And thank you so much again for sharing your sweeties with us!
I have been so lucky to do this family’s baskets since Berkley was the only little girlie! She is now the oldest of three sweet girls! I had to share this because I LOVE the fact that I received Berkely’s liner with some obvious child wear on it-WHAT?! How fantastic is it that this mommy wants her little girlie to use and enjoy her precious basket!!!!! I love that!
Little Berkley had fun with a pen on the inside bottom of the liner-oops! I can so see my boys doing the same thing! The inner bottom fabric was easily replaced with a soft cuddle fleece of a coordinating fabric. There were a few other use spotts-maybe candy?! or a smidge of dirt? Easily cleaned off! So, thank you again to Mommy for letting her girlie enjoy and use her special basket-for that is what these are for!!!
Berkley has also decided that her favorite color is blue. Mommy wanted me to add a litttle something to her basket to reflect that. So, I added a mommy birdie on Berkley’s “y” looking over her three little sissie birdies (all blue!) in their nest. I hear that Berkley loves it!!!
We also replaced Berkley’s original hot pink and white smaller ribbon ties on the sides with larger (and coordinating to her new sisters!) pink satin ribbbon ties with little mini puff balls!
I will add more pics of the other girls’ baskets soon, but I just had to share this one! Oh, and you may notice that the basket is a bit big for the liner-it isn’t Berkley’s original basket. I should have switched it to another basket but I really wannted to show all three girls liners together!!!! I feel so lucky to have such wonderful customers!
Thank you so much again Jessica!
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. I am still making Easter baskets (and other things!) for next year so if you are thinking about it-it is never too early to inquire!
Email me at email@example.com with any questions ! And have lots of fun with those little ones!!!
