Hello :) I wanted to post an update here, because people have been asking me about orders. I realize I haven't written anything since my last post about Ellie being born, back in April of 2011.

After nine weeks in the NICU, we realized that something was wrong with our baby girl, and in August, a couple months after coming home, she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome. We believe she has a relatively mild version of the disorder, but at present her night breathing is seriously affected, and she will be spending the next three months or so in the ICU.

Due to all the time we spend with her at appointments, and in hospital, it is highly unlikely I will be reopening my shop in 2012, although I hope to one day start up my business again.

If you are here looking for custom baby bedding, I would suggest you head over to, and check out RockyTop Designs, or BirdsHaveFlowers.

Our tiny Ellie is here! After 10 weeks of bedrest, I couldn't keep her in any longer, and she made her entrance into the world a full 8 weeks early.

My days involve trekking back and forth from home to the NICU, my evenings have been comprised of a lot, and I mean a LOT of nesting.

I am currently in the process of destashing my ready-to-ship items, and am offering them for sale at a discount through my Facebook Page I don't know what I'm going to do with my Etsy shop quite yet. It all depends on how things go with Ellie and eventually how I manage to balance out both kids :)

I have a TON of blankets to list, most of them are cotton with a minky backing, and cotton border.

Changing Pad Covers are $30 shipped
Fitted Sheets are $35 shipped
Blankets will range from $30 shipped, to $55 shipped

I'm so excited that this customer sent along a picture of her completed nursery :) Thank you!!

This set started off with this design layout:

and this is how it ended up!

I love the wall color, the awesome vinyl stickers, all of it! What a cute room :) We did the crib bumper, skirt and sheet. Pillow is from another Etsy seller!

Sorry, we aren't back in action!

I was going through listings today, making changes to descriptions and adding new pictures, but to do so, I had to leave vacation mode, and Etsy sent out an email saying we're back. Sorry, we're not! I really wish we were, but things are still crazy, and I haven't figured out how to comply with full-on bed rest and sew at the same time.

Head over to Seventh Smith to enter their fantastic giveaway!! $350 worth of gift certificates to be won, to a bunch of awesome shops.

Status Update

I got home on a day-pass today, and checked out the status of all my orders. EVERYTHING has been shipped, although some of the parcels were shipped with Parcel Post (when they usually go Priority) so not everything has a tracking number.

I apologize again for all the craziness over here, and ask for your understanding if things arrive a little later than promised.

in times of trial...

I literally dream about sewing, I miss it so very much. The hubby and I had a talk a while back because I thought I might want to change directions with the business... but the more I think about it, the more I am sure it is what I want to do. Wish our house (which I haven't seen in ages!) Were bigger, but we will make it work.

To be honest, I am afraid that this pregnancy disaster and ensuing hiatus from sewing and the delay in getting orders out because of it all is going to affect consumer confidence. Online, all we have towards our name is the feedback customers leave. My communication has been sketchy , at best, over the past month and a half, and if I could chanhe it all and have the uneventful pregnancy i'd hoped for and been able to keep sewing until the bitter end, I would have been so happy. I never dreamt I would have six medical visits a week, and not be allowed to go to my house! I never thought any of this was even remotely possible. As a minor control freak, not being able to SEE the items that leave bearing my name is tough. I just hope that people can understand I am never going to disappear with their money and leave them beddingless. Unfortunately, we missed getting some sets out before babies were born, and I am sincerely torn up about it, but there is nothing I can do. I have no control. I also only have a phone at the moment, no computer, which makes it difficult to navigate through emails and messages efficiently.

When this all blows over, and God-willing, we have a healthy baby to show for it, I know it all will have been worth the stress. I hope you can stick by us, and hope to see you on the other side, when kids and sewing rule my life and bed rest is a distant memory.
