Here are the burp cloths I have made so far.

I have put a name under each one for easy reference. Also, to give an idea of what the prices are, I put the price underneath the pictures.

Aniston $8

My daddy is a Hero

This burpcloth would be $9 because there is monogramming above and below the material (the writing above is not shown, it says: My daddy is a). But, if you would like writing only below or above the material it would be $8


This would be $9 with the pom poms on bottom

This monogram has a cursive B in pink behind the name which is done in brown

Pink and brown toile with "B" initial $8

Initialed pink and brown paisley $8

I Samuel 1:27 $8

Initialed blue and brown checkers $8

Green and checker ribbon

This would be $6 because it has two ribbons and no monogram

Initial pink and green toile $8

Little Bucaneer $8

Sweet Pea $8

Jaida $9

Black & White Toile

This would be $5 because there is material and no monogram

Boston $8

Blue and white toile $8

Kinsley Paige $8

The apple of HIS eye

Yesterday I had two showers to go to. I love showers! They are so much fun to go to and to help with, and to host...of course the ones I enjoyed the most were the wedding and baby showers my friends threw for me! Anyways, I was only in charge of a few little things to bring to Sara's wedding shower I was helping host. Of course when I finally got there after rushing around, I had forgotten two of the things I was supposed to bring! How is it that I ALWAYS seem to forget at least one thing? At least I wasn't running late! All this to say...I wish I was perfect sometimes! Do you have one of those friends who seems just perfect? Always has her house organized and clean, always on time, always remembers everything, does an amazing job at work, has wonderful children, and still manages to be an awesome friend?! Well, I have one of those friends...Maureen. She owns her own business - she's a photographer, and she takes amazing pictures! She never seems to be stressed with all her photo sessions and getting pictures ready, and then she is involved in church, her house is always clean, she is SO creative, she always has the cutest outfits on, and she has a 1-year-old, and is 8 months pregnant. With all that, she's still an amazing friend, and on top of everything...she's absolutely gorgeous and the most adorable pregnant lady ever:) So, yesterday at the bridal shower, she was one of the hostesses and she did 5x as much as I did for the shower and everything was SO adorable. I wonder how a person can be so creative! And of course, she didn't forget anything! I find myself thinking sometimes...why can't I be more perfect? I like to appear as though I have everything together, but my house isn't always clean, I don't always look cute, I don't always know the perfect words to say, I'm not very creative, it takes me forever to lose weight, and it seems that I hardly ever get everything done during the day that I set out to do. BUT, last night while I was contemplating why I seem to always fall short of who I wish I was and what I wish I could do, and overall - why I am not perfect. . .I realized that God doesn't want me to be perfect. How could He be my Savior if I'm perfect? I have to rely on him each day in what I say, do, and think. I have to remember that I can't do anything on my own...I have to constantly rely on Him to help me and sustain me. Psalm 17:8 says"Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings." I am the apple of God's eye! I know God created me this way for a purpose. Christ can be glorified in my weaknesses because he is the one who enables me to overcome those weaknesses. I relish the fact that I have an incredible husband, an unbelieveably amazing baby boy and and wonderful family and friends. I AM BLESSED! Why should I be sad that I am not like someone else? I am sure Maureen isn't actually perfect...she probably has a flaw somewhere (I just haven't ever seen one!!:). I know that she has to rely on God daily also. So, I feel like God is saying "Be who I created you to be - you are my creation and the apple of my eye!"

My New Blog

As I am typing on this blog, my 3 month-old baby is discovering that he can play with the toys hanging down in his little "play dome." It is so amazing to watch him develop new skills everyday! He's talking, smiling, and laughing so much now! His sweet smile and precious voice just make me melt. I thank God everyday for this beautiful and absolutely perfect baby that he has blessed me and my husband with! Well, so I finally started a blog after hearing all the women at church constantly talk about thier blogs. I am using this blog for myself and my new business. Right now I am making burpcloths and monogramming them. I also make keychains. I will be adding pictures to show some samples! Soon, I will also have bags, (hopefully) diaper bags, and bows.
