The Bob Books series was money well spent. Simple, stories based on simple vowel sounds that add new letters and words as you progress. Plus Marin loves the simple, silly illustrations.

What's a Maternity Shower? It's the brain child of Tasha Carter Marsh who can be quoted as saying "the best thing about being pregnant is shopping for cute maternity clothes. Krystina, when you get pregnant I'm going to throw you a party so you'll be the most stylish mama on the block." And she did! My best wardrobe is my maternity collection. The first ever Maternity shower was hosted on March 4, 2007 for yours truly. Tasha's was on September 7, 2009.
Here is an overview of the small brunch gathering we had to celebrate the "Eggscellent News" that Sarah is "Eggspecting a baby."

August of 2009. Amazing how much she's changed.

I created this custom, felt birthday hat for Miranda's first birthday. My best friend Tasha chose a panda theme party for her baby girl's birthday. Little ones LOVE to play peek-a-boo, so I thought it would be fun to have the panda on her hat play peek-a-boo.
This is the fourth felt birthday hat I've designed. An enjoyable craft. Can't wait to make one for baby A. Here are the other hats I've created.

Pieces from another baby shower freelance project for a friend. Snakes, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails themed shower. Hoping she will share pics from the party

I’ve been eyeing this ADDORABLE sun suit on Made By Rae. But have been hesitant because it required skills in applying snaps and shirring. After a few helpful tutorials and an evening and afternoon of sewing, this mama churned out THREE shirred outfits. Two sun suits and a dress for Marin.
The best part of shirring? Watching the fabric magically shrink when water and steam are applied (totally neato). ALMOST makes hand winding a bobbin worth it….almost.
