I am enjoying my spring visit to the Merchandise Mart spring show. I have found some real gems to add to the website. These children's backpacks are perfect for spring picnics, hikes and other adventures And, they are personalized for you of course.

Here is a new item made today. Ribbon tags on blankets are all the rage. I have never seen a tagged blanket with the cool silky backing that babies love. So I decided to make my own. This blanket is a good size too - 20" x 20" - just the right size for a toddler. It is available in a variety of prints that are a good proportion to the size of the blanket - and the ribbon tags are color coordinated.

We have started a fun tradition for the children in our family. I have taken a simple white tablecloth and embroidered it with the theme of the child's birthday party each year and designated which year it is. This one is for my grandson Sean, who just turned six. The first year's theme was transportation and we chose a train (B01) from the boy's embroidery design section on the website. The next year was safari, represented by the stacked giraffes. Age three was dinosaurs as that was a huge year for dinosaurs in his life. For age four, we have an ocean theme - a starfish. Age five was all about pirates. And age six was dangerous animals and I swallowed hard to overcome my "issues" and embroidered him a nasty looking snake. Such a fun keepsake from each year's birthday party!

Taking a single embroidered gift (from Initial Impressions of course) and bundling it with smaller, related items is a thoughtful way to put together a special gift. This, seen on Pinterest, would make a great thank you gift for a teacher. Take a beach towel or chaise lounge cover, add some sunscreen and a current magazine, tie with a pretty bow and you have a great teacher appreciation gift.
