As the rush of energy returns so do the ideas. I have been so busy making things already and I have so much more to share with the world. I have decided that I am going to start a home business making the wonderful items I have been complemented on since the birth of my son Max. I want to fill Max's world with color and imagination a Wonderland of sense; so far we are off to a running start.

His room aka the Nursery is a smashing success! I have recieved so many compliments that it gives me hope. I have also discovered now that my son is 2 months old that he has interest in the items hanging on the walls of his room. We sing the alphabet song to the alphabet, so they know who they are. We discuss that Fox is spelt F.O.X. and that Foxes are orange, etc. We have tummy time on his bright rug and someday I can see us racing cars along the shapes.

I am currently working on a bunch of small projects that I am thinking of selling on I would love feedback on which items fulfill my goals of being: educational, imaginative, whimsical, and origional.

Everyonce in a while there will just be an image of a new item, I would love to hear your opinions and suggestions; of course I will take orders as well. If you have a loved one in need of anything I am taking custom orders as well.

Here's to Happy Hands at Home! Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!

Costume Parade

THE GREAT PUMPKIN! Having a son has been amazing. This year I had a partner in crime celebrating andd setting up for Halloween this year. I got busy making Max's First Costume! I found the pumpkin hat for $1 at Joann's a few weeks back and decided that I could make a costume to match. I think it took about 4 hours. He wore it for about 1 hour, but it was worth it! He's only 2 months old but already growing out of 3month sizes. I made it a bit big so hopefully future kids will be able to wear it. I must say that it turned out Amazing and it gives me hope for my future Costume Making Abilities.

About a week ago my cousin's son Charles decided he wanted to be a donut... He's 12 and I couldn't dissapoint him.

Lizzie's First Projects

I am a proud AUNT! I meant to put these pictures up Months ago, but then I found myself pregnant and lost all train of thought.

So I started out when I found some really bright fabric and mixed them all together to create a small quilt. It fits her crib and is backed in a soft flannel. I made all of this back in the spring, and gave them to her when she was born in May.

Using bits of fabric I trimmed out the edges of a few Burp Cloths (cloth diapers).

Rattle Mobile
Each of these little animals are little rattles. I have been told that Lizzie just loves looking at them over her changing table. I picked them to match the mural in her room (I painted last Christmas before she was born.) So combining the colors from her room with the colors her parents picked I out all of these things together and I hear they have all turned out to be a hit. A great starting point for more projects.
