The bracelet she chose to receive is the Knitty Bitty Birthstone Bracelet---with a March Birthstone. She said it is going to be a communion gift for her niece. I hope she like it! You can find the birthstone bracelets in my Etsy shop---just click here.
I'm planning another fun give-away for this summer---so keep checking back!!
P.S. Some of you may have noticed my contest ended a few days early---sorry! Big goof on my part. I looked at the calender wrong and thought is was already May---but it really didn't matter b/c she was already the winning number ; - )

I've spent most of my free time today (kids nap time) working on my Ebay listings. They are soooo time consuming. That's why I like Etsy so much---it's much cheaper and quicker. But, I do sell a lot on Ebay, so I stick with it. Here's one of my listings today---with many many more items waiting to get listed!!!

Tomorrow some friends of ours is having their little girl baptised, so I wanted to make something really special for her. I came up with this bracelet, and I'm just thrilled with it. I think it turned out beautiful!! I just ran to Hobby Lobby this a.m. with the intentions of just getting the silver cross and when I saw the little silver flowers---with the teeny tiny little rhinestones in the middle, I know they would be perfect. I think I'll list one in my Etsy store too.
And, I've been wanting to get this little ladybug bracelet created for quite some time now, so I made it this a.m. in the wee hours of the morning---before the kids got up. I'll tell you, I could get a lot more done if I'd just get up before the kids do ; - )
I also just heard back from the photographer today who I sent the hats to and she sounded thrilled with them---can't wait to see some pics. She even said she'd make a new blogger banner for me with a little newborn wearing one of my hats. Can't wait!!!

I mailed this set off yesterday. A customer ordered the striped sweet pea hat with the matching mittens. This is the first set I've made with striped sweet pea mittens. I love the way they turned out---and they packaged up so cute too. I hope they like them!
I also created a new bracelet today---the strawberry blossom. I've had the beads for awhile and just hadn't had to time to sit down and create something---until today. A customer who just purchased a strawberry hat from me the other day wanted to know if I had the matching bracelet. I do have one listed, but I thought this was a good incentive to get the other one done so she could see both and then make her decision. Wonder which one she'll like better?

A few months ago, a very talented photographer, Dawn Simmons contacted me with an offer. She wanted a few of my hats in exchange for the use of the photos of babies in the hats to use on my website. So, I finally have them done and in the mail today. I'm sure she will get tons of great pics---I can't wait to see some of her work. I'll post some as soon as I receive some from her.

After a long day of running errands and going to the ball game, the kids are finally bathed, fed, and ready for bed.......but not without one quick movie---Josie's favorite, An American Tale. ni-night

I guess I got the creative bug today......when the kids went to bed for their afternoon nap, I got out all my beads and went to work. I have a lot of polymer clay beads just waiting to become bracelets and I was able to get three done. I made a little flower girl, a real pretty green apple with pastel crystals, and a cherry one. I actually have hats that coordinate with all three of these....now, just to get them listed!
My little girl decided she didn't really want to take a nap today, so to keep her busy (and her little fingers out of my beads) she practiced her letters ; -)

Hello! Thanks for checking out my blog site! I've been wanting to try blogging for quite some time now as I'm slightly addicted to reading other people's blogs and getting a tiny glimpse of the world around them. So, here goes my attempt at letting you into my world.
I made these two chick bracelets for a grandma who purchases hats from me. I'm a little sad to part with them. They are really cute, and they are the last two chick beads I have. I think they are adorable!
I have to mention my knit hats in my very first blog entry, so here's a pic of a new hat I just made for a customer. She wanted a pea pod hat, but wanted in navy and blue striping. So, this is how it turned out. I just listed it in my Etsy store.
Well, I have tons more to say, but that's all for today. I have a stack of hats waiting to get finished. I'll post more soon. Bye for now!
