Bows, Headbands, and Flowers

So for the last few days I have been working on some more bows, headbands, and flowers.  Just waiting now for my clips so I can get them posted on Etsy. 

Now my question for everyone, what kind of bows do you like or want to see more of?  

And just for good measure here's another preview of what's coming!

A Bow for Maddie

Please take a moment and read this families heartbreaking story about their little angel. Today is her funeral and in memory of Maddie please wear a bow or have your daughter wear a bow for her.

It all started when two people fell in love...

Milk nursingwear

So Houghton Happenings is having a giveaway for a $25.00 gift certificate to MILK.  Milk has lots of different styles of nursing wear and though I am not nursing I am going to bookmark this site for future use.  I love love love the fact they have a plus sized section and it doesn't look like hospital wear. Lol.  My favorite item is the Geo Print top which is on sale for $9.99!! 

Thanks again to Houghton Happenings for having this giveaway!

Etsy Items

So if you haven't seen yet I finally got some new things up on Etsy!!  Yay!  I am thinking about being a sponsor in a giveaway or two, to get my name out there.  I am thinking about making some that are filled with lavender or maybe rosemary.  I need to get to JoAnne's here soon to get a few things.  I'm so excited to be sewing again. :)

Ideas for Etsy

So I have started to think of things I would like to put up on Etsy.  I want my store to be a bit of everything, but focusing on comfort and relaxation.  The next few days I'll be drafting a few more patterns and getting some more examples up.

Until then I'm still in limbo, but getting closer.  I am thinking about having a "Grand Opening Giveaway" soon after to see about getting some fans as well as maybe sending out some items to review.

So what kind of things would you like to see with comfort and relaxation?

Shoes! Need Critique!

So I used to make these slippers for my dolls, and they were a huge hit.  I took a break from sewing for a bit since my job started to get busier and my hours went from 10 a week to 30.

But I finally dug out my old pattern and re-sized it for a baby.  And this is what I came up with tonight!

They still need a bit of work, but for a first attempt I'm pretty happy.  I am only worried about the sizing.  Since I don't have any children/ shoes, I don't have much to go off of.   I have a couple friends who have babies, but I'm not sure if that would work as far as sizing because every kid is different... maybe I should just go by measurements?  What do you guys think?

Also I'm always up for critique!  Let me know what you would like to see, buttons, bows, ribbons, etc.

Bright Blessings!

Now on Facebook

So I know I only have a few followers and I haven't gotten my Etsy store up and running, but I wanted to make a Facebook page for it anyway.

My store is called "Fields of Sunshine."  I hope to have a large diversity of items ranging from, but not limited to, fleece baby shoes, eye pillows, photography, crochet items, and maybe zippered bags.

I am always open to ideas and will have more postings now, I hope you all enjoy and I'll be updating my store soon!

Bright Blessings!

My First Zipper Flower

ZOMG the sun is out!

OK so we still are in frigid temps, but the sun is out!! It is shining in our window as we speak.  I am loving it!  I am in such a good mood from just the sun being out.  I baked a dozen muffins, did dishes (my least favorite chore), and am now listening to one of my favorite singers PINK.  She has a new song out, well new for me, and I have no way to say how much I love love love love it!  It's called F*cking Perfect.  Oh course it's not child friendly, but it really does hit home with me.  If you get the chance look it up.

Have a great day and I hope the sun is shining for you!!!

Mail Time!

So I know that hubs and I are still trying for children, but I see no problem in being prepared.  Thus said I have been entering all the giveaways I can!  Today I got something I have been looking forward to!  It's a BabyBond!  If you haven't heard of them here is a  link to their website

I do have my heart set on breastfeeding, or at least giveing it a try.  When I saw this as a giveaway I instantly in love.  I think I entered a total of 3 giveaways for one before I actually won.  So it came in the mail today and I have to say I can't wait! 

I love the fact it comes with it's own holder!  I got the black since I wear it the most and the fact I love black. Lol. 

(Sorry for the bad picture) This is how it looks totally rolled out, it comes with a burp cloth and it also has a place to hold it in place. 

So all in all it really is nice, wonderfully made.  It fits really nice to, though no picture of that, I was getting ready for work and was able to snap a few pictures before running off. 

Also totally random I am so glad I finally figured out how to post pictures!!!
