I'm an addict

Ok all. I sorta had a feeling but now I know it's true. I am addicted to Etsy. It has been down ALL day & I am dying for a fix! I need to shop & list & answer questions. Aahhh!!! It's ok. It will all be over soon. I hope.

Sometimes I wonder what would my children call me if Mommy wasn't in their vocabulary. Perhaps there would be silence! Oh, sweet silence! I remember with each of my children, that I couldn't wait until they could talk. Now I just wish they would be quiet & listen:) Between the two that are at home all day I think I hear "Mommy" at least 10 times a minute. I'm not exaggerating. My 5 yr old son can't get my attention fast enough & tries to squeeze in as many "Mommy"s as he can before I have a chance to answer & as soon as I answer he has another 2 or 3 "Mommy"s waiting for me. My 21 month old daughter just loves to call out my name. It was so sweet at first but now it just doesn't stop. But she has nothing to say once you respond to her. She just says "Mommy" again and again and again... I need one of those clicker things that you use to count how many people come through the door. I want to use it to see how many times my kids call out "Mommy!" Oh but I love them even if I wish I could change my name :)

The purse sold already!

I can't believe it! I just listed the Kelsey Bag & someone already bought it! I guess I need to get busy sewing instead of blogging!

Another new Product - The Kelsey Purse

Named after my little sister who wanted me to design her a purse. After I made hers I knew I needed to sell them too! I love it! Of course the fabrics really make it what it is. Love the Amy Butler fabrics! Check out the listing & let me know what you think. The Kelesy Bag

New Product!

I have about 75 left over handmade purses from a project I started about 2 years ago. After months of trying to figure out what to do with them I finally had an idea! OOAK stroller bags! These super cute bags hang from the straps of your stroller & hold the essentials close at hand! Great for strollers that don't have the parent tray at the top of the stroller. I just listed the first one! Sock Moneky! My favorite! Check it out! I will be making more over the coming weeks but for the most part no two will be alike!

Do I Sew or Sleep?

Ok, so it is 11:30 (pm) & I just got home from my husband's heavy metal concert. I have two projects on my table waiting to be finished. Do I sew or do I sleep? Hmm. have to get up at 7:30 to go pick up the kiddos from my parents...hmmm. I think I'll go watch SNL & do some sudoku! Sudoku anyone?

I was right

Well, I was right it was too easy. Although it was really more my problem than anything. It's funny how one wrong letter can cause so much confusion. All figured out now. I hope! Well, off to my husband's concert!

Sold a Nickname shirt!

Woohoo! I just sold my first Nickname shirt! I have had so many complements on it but no buyers yet! Can't wait to get started on it & get a new pic listed!

I'm getting it!

Hey, This is easier than I thought it would be! At least right now! I am sure there is some horribly difficult thing that I am missing! But for now I am so proud of myself I can't help but smile!

The Beginning

Alright I admit it I have never done this before. Can you believe it. I am a blogger virgin. But I figure if I am really going to get my company name out there I am going to have to start sometime. I guess I have alot to figure out. Ok, I KNOW I have alot to figure out. Eventually I'll get it! I hope. Enough about that, Let me introduce myself. I am a SAHM. I have been married 10 1/2 yrs to my husband Duane who is a musician & is in the band Gnashing of Teeth he also does recording in his "spare" time. We have three great kids Elijah, 6 1/2, Seth 5 & Kate 21 mo. Kate alone is more of a handfull than my boys ever were! I have been told that raising girls is harder than boys & that is sooo true! But she is my inspiration! My product line has really developed because I love making clothes & stuff for her.I have a BS in Education & am going back to school this fall to start working in my Master's degree. I am looking forward to that although it will leave me less time to sew. But I'm sure that I will manage.Ok, I need to move on & get this thing looking good! I'll be back with bells on! In the meantime check out my Etsy store Pumpkin Head Baby Co. I would love to know what you think!
