Berkley’s Liner-updates!!!!

imageimageimageimageimage

 

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!

Hand Painted Easter Baskets

What fun to make these! I usually sketch out the scene on fabric then embroider it! How fun to be able to paint my scenes directly onto the basket! Also check out my hand painted items-including personalized hand painted  wooden Easter eggs!

Princess Bed Canopy

So, funny story, well, frustrating really, the reason I have extra pictures of this canopy is because I tried to do my own photo shoot of it out in the forest…Well, once again, a painful reminder that I am not a professional photographer! I love photography-I think I have an “eye”-but I am definitely technically challenged! After realizing that I had not taken into account the weather-the wind was blowing so much that the ideal spot just didn’t work, and another gorgeous spot had snow dripping all over the place and would have soaked the canopy and ruined the picture. Seriously, I lost a pair of scissors, because of that couldn’t cut my twine the way I wanted-so it was wrapped up all over the place, and generally was pretty frustrated.  But, I finally found a “good enough” spot and was lucky to get a few good pics of it at least. See what you think! And here is a little more information on the canopy itself:

This canopy is definitely fit for a little princess! I worked with mom to create the perfect castle canopy for her little sweetie. Lauren’s first initial is hand embroidered in pink silk ribbon on the front center of the castle. Lauren loves butterflies so I put butterflies here and there all over the canopy-and even through the tulle front panel that was made to hang over her full sized bed.

The castle has scroll designs along each panel-a beautiful pearly white cording brings out these scroll designs perfectly. Jewels are also positioned throughout the canopy’s castle to add even more girliness to it!

The 4 panels can be tied back with a gorgeous chevron pink and white ribbon, or the front two tied, or all left untied to totally enclose the castle-depending on the princess’s whim of the moment. One of the panels has a secret pocket on the inside for Mommy or Daddy to leave a special note to their little princess-or maybe for Lauren to put in a special small book or stuffed animal.

Dave’s Christmas Stocking (Family Christmas Stocking)

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!

Ethan’s Christmas Stocking

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!

David’s Fingerprint Snowman Jar (votive holder!)

My little 8 year old artist, David, used his finger tip to create these sweet snowmen! He did his own red scarves, black hats, orange noses and eyes and buttons. I used a frost effect to coat the jar ahead of time, after he was finished with his snowmen we added “snow” in the form of paint with glitter! Next I will add a battery operated votive, but it is already on display on my windowsill in the kitchen! See below for fun ideas making snowmen with a little one’s fingerprints. You can also check out my Etsy shop for premade kits!

Fingerprint/Handprint Snowmen!

I  just love being able to preserve little fingerprints in a way that I can enjoy again and again! The fingerprint snowmen shown in the pictures are made from my 2year old niece’s little hand print. I used a sharpie to write the date and her name on the bottom of the jar for her Daddy to keep and bring out every year-my boys always love comparing how their hands have grown with their fingerprint/keepsake items!

I added a little pink scarf to each snowperson, a black hat, an orange nose, blue eyes (like Sophie’s!), stick arms, and even put little snowballs in some of the snowgirls hands! I dotted some white paint “snow” throughout the background of the jar, swirled some on the bottom and then sprinkled white glitter all over the jar so that it would stick to the white paint to make it even more snow like.

I also love to be able to recycle and reuse, this jar was actually a pasta sauce jar. I put a little battery operated votive inside of it and it is ready to go for holiday decorating!

There are so many variations on this theme you could do, too. My 8 year old just used his fingertip to create his snowmen and he loved making the scarves, hats, and the rest of the snowmen himself. I thought how fun it would be to get a fingerprint from each member of the family and have a snowperson represent everyone! We’ll see if we can get everyone to cooperate with that one!

And, I’m thinking as a teacher gift to have all of the kids put their own fingerprint on a jar with their name above the snowman. We can fill the jar with homemade white chocolate pretzels! One of my favorite treats to make with the kids!
