Shelby's outfit!

So i finished Shelby's 1st outfit made by her momma, ME! It's the ruffle-dress I did and posted earlier this week but it's modified a bit. Of course the size is smaller (0-3mon) and i also added more ruffles, a double ruffle on the pink layer THAT I DID ALL BY HAND, different smaller ribbon ties and did the M2M ("made to match") bow different as well. Girl needed some feathers!! haha...I've got to go have my monogrammer put her name on it and it will be complete! i think i'm gonna get "Shelby" in a real funky font or should I just have s K l (her initials) done???
The ruffles stop at the side seams (do not go around the back) b/c it's already heavy and carrying her in this will be more comfy for her w/o all that business goin on on the back if she's anything like her daddy, she'll have enough "back" goin on..."baby LITERALLY may have back!" haha.. (big booty in case you're wondering what i'm referrin too..haha)... here's the pics.. this was done, total time off and on, in about 4 hours. I added the bow to a headband I already have but it is removable. OH, i added the pink w/ green dot ribbon as a "little extra somethin" under the first ruffle, actually to hide the edges of the big dot ruffle, but it's a cute "hidden surprise"! Hope u can see it.... this was so fun!

I just LOVE IT!! :) I can't wait to see her in it!
Well, today, our co-workers are hosting us a shower here at the university (which by "co-workers" i mean, pretty much EVERYONE here on-campus that we know and love). We are soo excited! It's from 4-6pm and I hope to get good pics to show y'all tomorrow or this weekend! This is our last shower for Miss Shelby so it will be soo relaxing and fun to just sit back and enjoy! This is the first one though that Josh has gone to. He didn't want to go to the others b/c he said they'd be "too girly". haha.. well, this one he really has no choice b/c it's hosted in HIS building downstairs from his office in what used to be the president's house but is now the "welcome center" so he can't avoid this one! haha.. i hate to tell him though, it's gonna be girly too! haha....
~God bless,

Well, I FINALLY ordered the main fabric for Shelby's bag this week and got it in YESTERDAY! Woo hooo! This is what it looks like, it's a Minky Dot fabric in chocolate brown:

It is sooo super soft and plush and will be sooo adorable next to her accent fabric! Here is a sneak peak at what her bag is looking like:

I can't WAIT to finish it and show the rest to ya! :)

34 weeks & Shower Pics!

So, wow!! We have a Honeydew! Today we are 34 weeks pregnant and BOY TO I FEEL ALL 34 WEEKS OF THAT... omg... we go today at 1pm for our "every 2 week" dr. visit so I'm curious to see how much Shelby's grown. Doc said last time that she will probably have grown another pound by the next time he sees me. OMG... that means she could be 5 POUNDS now! I was only 4 lbs 8 oz! geese! I know that's not much, but wow... I am to that "uncomfortable/irritable" stage, I KNOW. I can't get comfy sitting, lying down, sleeping, walking, etc... I JUST FEEL LIKE I'M CARRYING A LOAD OF POTATOES and get no relief. I am now thinking she's gonna come the end of May so I'm not counting the 9 days in June as "time left". June 9th is not that far away, but if she wants to come the end of May, sounds fine to me! haha...
Here are some pics from a dinner-shower (April 21, 2009; 33 weeks pregnant) that some close friends hosted for me and Miss Shelby. It was a lovely, intimate dinner and a great fellowship w/ these girls I don't get to see much anymore. :) Thank you ladies for the lovely evening and wonderful gifts!

New bags & outfit!

Well, these are the last of all my orders to complete until September! I do have 2 other outfits to make but they are just like the "Lacey Outfit" pictured, but I have started on one for Shelby too! Here's some pics of 3 Diaper bags and the NEW "Lacey Outfit":


This was SOOOOOOO fun to make! In fact, I started on Shelby's like this yesterday but it's different. :) I can't wait to hear from the customer to see what she thinks!

I'm trying to make room for new inventory that I'll be doing once Shelby is here and settled. These items pictured are considered "Ready-Made" so they are sold, AS IS. They are at a first-come, first-served basis so when they're gone, they are gone and customizing is not included.
