Our "Big Boy"

Our last couple of weeks have been consumed with our little one's 2nd birthday. He now calls himself "big boy" and the name fits. While I love this age and love to watch him learn new words and make new discoveries, he's also losing his baby face and entering toddlerism (is that a word??). Very bittersweet.

We recently celebrated his birthday with family and friends. Now I have to admit, I'm not a party planner or decorator, but I do love making a homemade cake for each of my two kids' birthdays. It's a special gift from me, and I hope it will be a treasured memory for them. Since my son Jonas is loving trains at the moment (& rocks, but how do you make a rock cake??) , it only seemed fitting to make him a special choo-choo train cake. It was lots of fun to decorate and even more fun to see him so excited about it. When it came time to sing "Happy Birthday", he was all smiles. And when Daddy told him to take a bite, he leaned over and literally took a huge bite right out of one of the train cars. It was priceless! I just had to share these pictures.

Now, life is settling down and we're getting ready for Summer. More celebrations just around the corner!

New Home Accessories Line

I always have customers ask me if I design and sew home accessories or tell me how great some of my fabrics would look in their family rooms or bedrooms. So. . . . . . . I've decided to branch out and offer home accessories using all the great fabrics that are also available on my handbags. So versatile!!

Here are some of my new cushions that I've introduced on my Etsy site. They're super inviting, comfy & modern. They can be used on your bed, sofa, or even as floor seating when entertaining. So many uses!

There is more in the works as well. Keep checking back to see my new line of fabric wall art. A wonderful way to draw a room together and put a pop of color on your walls.
