Neat Desk - Paperwork Processor - thank goodness!

I am excited to have received and set up my trial of the Neat Desk - a special scanner with intelligent software to process receipts. From what I can tell so far, this gadget is going to save me time and allow me to do what I love - focus on being creative. I am thrilled to delegate the drudgery to a machine.

Multi Purpose Insulated Bag - Personalized of Course

I originally made this insulated bag to carry a lunch to work stylishly. My daughter now tells me that they are the perfect size to carry baby Eric's bottles and keep them safely cold until needed. What a pretty way to stay portable!

Wedding Gown Labels

These are the latest in our series of wedding gown labels. These labels are sewn into the inside bodice of the gown, often near the manufacturer label. They come in a variety of shapes and styles. This new set has a sort of frame feel. The triple bean stitch detailing adds to the frame look. They are made with white, ivory or bridal blue satin with the opposite color used for the stitching. We use a monogram in any number of pretty lettering styles and add the wedding date of course.

These images of children aprons are the "go for" gift for Mother's Day. They do generate the oohs and ahs. If you are fortunate, there will be another face to add to the apron by this time next year.

First Mother's Day

While browsing etsy one day, I found this bicycle fabric which just happened to match the fun bicycle aprons I have on the website. This find turned into a first mother's day gift for my daughter and her new baby Eric. She and her husband are already bicycle people and Eric is destined in that direction too.
