Alright, One More : :

Sarah, the winner of the giveaway, chose Alex Owl and shared why on her blog. The other owls are already at or are heading to hello Bluebird.

So, I guess I wasn't ready just yet to stop with the owl parade. Meet the caboose --- Elma Owl

I made this pillow on Sunday for the daughter of my friend, a sweet little girl named Sophie. (Haila had to see for herself if it was comfortable.)
And, since I didn't share a great picture of Jacob's Birthday Crown last week, I decided to share a better picture. If you have a little one in your life, making one of these is a must. Jacob designed this one himself and wore it for a week straight. --- So quick, easy, and absolutely adorable!
Wishing you a wonderful day! ~ Maureen

  4. Thanks ladies!

    Jenny - Yes, the idea is from the Creative Family, but naturally I didn't follow the instructions or use the template(you have to enlarge it.) The front is Jacob's favorite fabric from my stash(Anna Maria, of course - just like his mama). The back is soft felt and then I used some thick elastic that I had for the band. It took about 20 minutes + the time to do the "J" and it is SO loved!

  8. Elma is awfully sweet too! She makes a very cute caboose! And I'm lovin' the pillow...

    Hello Bluebird looks like a very special shop - you are lucky to have it close by!

    (And thanks, too, for all the mentions!)

  10. Life Smart It - I plan on selling more on etsy once Haila is in school and I can make "making things" my full-time gig. Right now I sell to boutiques, so I don't have to spend what time I do have promoting and instead use that precious time to create more.

    I post pics first always on my fb group page http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=63078428782
    and if they are available they "luckily" get snatched up right away by my followers. You should join, if you are on facebook.

  11. Sarah - Hello Bluebird is pretty far from me, almost 6 hours but it is just such a lovely looking shop - I couldn't resist!

    Unfortunately where I live there are no wonderful shops or boutiques to sell to. I do sell to several throughout the country - and hope to have my very own someday. : )
