Open For Business!!

My Etsy shop is officially open!!
Click here to check it out!

These are a few of the things I have been working on the past few weeks!

All things baby, so far.

Don't you just LOVE that fabric?? I wish I had a nice, soft blanket like that!

Or, if I were a boy...

I have a stack of sewing to get to, and so many new ideas in my head to experiment with. Now I just need to find a few more hours in my day!

pick a winner...

Last weekend, while my husband, J, was having a blast at the UM game, I packed the kids up and met my sister-in-law at Erwin Orchards. The boys love everything about the orchard - the bounce house, hay maze, goats, of course cider and doughnuts, wagon rides, and eating their way through the raspberry bushes and apple trees!
It was a gorgeous, sunny day that we soaked in. They keep bees and sell the honey (next time I will bring more money!) and we were lucky enough to come across a few hives tucked among the raspberry bushes. The boys were fascinated!

We ended up picking two pounds of raspberries and one peck of apples (Macintosh, Cortland, and Empire). With FULL bellies, we headed home.

Once I had everyone safely occupied, I set to work peeling apples. Throw those in a pot with a little water, cinnamon, and plenty of raspberries. Simmer for a few hours, and ENJOY!
